“Shut Up, That’s Why” – A Follow-Up

Natalie Reed takes my piece on “Shut Up, That’s Why” arguments against atheism, and expands it to show how these arguments get used to silence feminism, queer rights, and other demands for social justice. I am so proud to be in a blogging network with this woman, I can’t even tell you.
