Todd Stiefel schools the Blaze

Stiefel has been doing a series of interview with the Glenn Beck’s Blaze, and the latest is slammin’ Jesus. It’s vastly entertaining: Stiefel is a fierce and uncompromising atheist, and the commenters…hoo boy. Pascal’s Wager in the second comment, if that tells you anything.

The next Pharyngula podcast…

Misogynists can think women are tasty, while not recognizing that they are human beings
