Things I'd like less of in my Thursday.

Condescending white atheists using black churches as targets (or ammunition) in their ongoing culture wars. Really. Shut the fuck up already.

And as I said before:

Something I've learned is that if I want religious people to respect my absence of faith, I should respect their abundance of it. This doesn't mean I can't be critical of religion's many flaws (flaws that are not, by the way, exclusive to religion but manifest in most any dogma or organization), but insulting people simply because they are religious is foolhardy. It alienates and dehumanizes them and makes me look mean and small-minded.
