Despite what people think the policy here is over at GroupThinkBorgBlogs, we’re all fine with trading ideas about how to pursue social justice, as long as they’re productive and positive ideas. After all, as Russell said, here at AXP, we’ve been doing “positive atheism” for years.
But we didn’t realize it was so utterly evil until now. According to this helpful comment…
A+ is about sowing an “us vs them” mentality, of building a cult of personality, and demonizing anyone that dares question what the holy leaders may say. If you think I’m being hyperbolic, I suggest you check out Richard Carrier’s blog post on the subject. A+ is about claiming that only you have virtue on your side and that if anyone ever disagrees with you about ANYTHING (or even just questions it) or even just doesn’t want to join your party, than they are a racist, homophobic, MRA (even if they happen to be a lesbian of color).
So you have fun with your little “split.” It helps the rest of us know who the irrational, non-thinkers are.
Wow. I must have missed the memo about fascistic I was supposed to be about all of this. Apparently, I must not tolerate anyone who disagrees with me, not only on subjects like social justice, but any subject whatsoever. Looks like I’m going to be a busy bee then.
So how much ostracizing and othering do I have to do to level up to being a holy leader of the personality cult? And when do I start scoring those hot hippie flower chicks?
