Examining the Secular - Latest Highlights

Hey gang, here are some highlights from my column at Examiner.com over the past week!

* I insist that it's okay to be judgmental about things really are bad
* I worry over new research showing growing political loathing for atheists
* I look at a fellow atheist who would like the envelope to remain un-pushed
* I make the case that atheists won no victories in Elizabeth Dole's defeat
* I razz the AP for reporting the obvious
* An Okie pol tries to ban Richard Dawkins, and why it's so weird
* I ask opponents of atheism to at least not make things up when they spit on us
* And Beliefnet just doesn't understand me!

Crazy times we live in. Thanks, everybody!

Good stuff!

I especially agree with this article: "An atheist tells his fellows to leave the envelope un-pushed"

I really don't understand the anti-atheist atheists, and I think they grate on my nerves more than the anti-atheist theists.

There will always be go-along-to-get-along parts reactions to any movement. Especially since atheists are not being beaten or jailed but "merely" marginalized, it's easy for some atheists to say that everything is fine. It takes some learning.
