PZ Myers and I disagree about some things, including the difference, if any, between "agnostics" and "atheists" and how we "secularists" should treat scientists who are theists. But there is no disagreement whatsoever that the recent panel discussion on "Why do atheists inspire such hatred?" on Paula Zahn's show on CNN was appalling.
It is absolutely stunning to me that a black woman and a Jewish woman could be so tone deaf to discrimination against others as to suggest that atheists just "shut up."
I guess them atheists are just gettin' uppity. Or is that pushy? Or maybe it's just their time of the month.
