Asking a question

So anyway, on Friday, I wrote again to the press contact person at the Global Secular Council to ask the question the GSC’s Twitter account never did answer, and first insulted me and then blocked me for asking. Why did the Global Secular Council launch before inviting more “global” people to be on its panel …

Atheists who can’t see past that label

Early this month Hemant posted a love note to the Secular Coalition for America. I don’t love the SCA myself. I love it now a lot less than I did a week ago (which wasn’t much), because of its “Global Secular Council” and its way of responding to my questions about same. But Hemant, for …

The people in the glossy photos

Stephanie notices some things about the Secular Coalition for America and its brainchild The Global Secular Council (you know, the one that’s not the least bit global, in fact about as unglobal as you can get). Will the people in the glossy photos do great work under the Global Secular Council banner? Hard to say. …

A major public face of the secular movement

Oh gee, the things you find when you glance at the site stats, which show links from other sites. Like this time a bunch from the JREF forum, which surprised me enough that I went to see why. The why? It’s Damion Reinhardt gloating over the fact that Michael Shermer is still popular in skepto-atheo …

If it doesn’t look the right color I suppose

More bonus! Global Secular Council on Twitter shyly calls me a racist. I love this group!

People who are currently at dinner with you

both

I was going to move on today, so as not to be a big mean ol’ bully to the Global Secular Council, but then I read yet another of its Twitter responses to me and found that moving on would not be possible. It was alternating between rebuking me for judging them “by the color …

Prepare for the POLICY RECOMMENDATION

PZ takes a look at the Global Secular Council Debut and compares how that’s being run to how he and Ed thought about Freethought Blogs when they were setting it up. Will they be effective? I looked at their Issues page, and it’s rather high-mindedly vague. For instance, one issue isInternational Human Rights. I’m glad …

To I, to she, to he, to they

And there’s their About page. Every ideological movement has a policy center. Republicans have The Heritage Foundation, New Democrats have the Progressive Policy Institute, Libertarians have The Cato Institute, and Secularists have the Global Secular Council. First, well, no. Ideological movements don’t usually have just one policy center. Also, not all participants in the movements …

The Adorbs Secular Council

adorbs

They’re adding stuff, the Top of Their Field geniuses at The Global Secular Council. We get to watch them add stuff. They’ve added a page for something called The Bella & Stella Foundation, which has a link at the bottom of the Team page. It’s some sweet whimsy-whamsy so that we’ll know they don’t take …

Your resource center

globey

Also… Here’s how the left margin of their Twitter account looks. Oh really? My and our resource center for international policy? Really? What makes it that? Who says it’s that? How can it possibly be that? There’s not a trace of internationalism in their lineup. Not a whiff. There’s not one person who’s not pale, …
