You’re sitting at home, skipping church, and there’s nothing on the TV but right wingers babbling about politics. Fix yourself some pancakes and browse the godless blogs instead.

    While I second your recommendations, I can’t let you get away with saying all Sunday TV in the United States is right wing bobbleheads. Chris Hayes and Melissa Harris Perry have been running excellent talk shops on MSNBC on Saturdays and Sundays for months now. Sam Seder is standing in for Chris this week. As a Londoner I love the detail these shows provide.

    PZ Myers– clairvoyant!

    I do that often. (But I make the pancakes from scratch; nothing worse than ‘instant’ pancake mix.)

    Comradde Physioproffe believes atheism+ is necessary, and the people arguing against it are asshats. Agreed.

    Atheism+ is not divisive. It’s not ‘us versus them’. It’s just about creating a safe space for people who have been harrassed.

    Yeah, right.

    Whatever atheism+ may be, it is above all an unmitigated PR disaster.

    “Whatever atheism+ may be, it is above all an unmitigated PR disaster.”

    The problem already existed within atheism before Atheism+ came along. If you want to pretend the problem isn’t there, well sure, shedding light on the problem is a PR disaster. I think it’s the way forward for atheists who want to push the atheist movement to be a lot more inclusive. When we speak up on our own parts, the misogynist loonies try their best to beat us down and the privileged just stand around and let it happen. Organizing is the solution, not the problem.

    I’m greatly saddened by the number of female bloggers taking time off blogging due to the sheer volume and hatefulness of the emails they’re getting. I don’t like saying this, but it seems that the MRA’s are having a real effect here. They’re succeeding in silencing the female voices, and with the vilest tactics available to them. This needs to stop.

    But it’s the + bloggers who are being divisive. *sage nod*

    LOL They can call it what they want, I see no good reason NOT to want to divide away from that. If distancing myself from that putrid bullshit is being divisive, then I guess I’m in favor of division.

    So yeah, let’s be divisive about this. Let’s divide the movement into two groups, those with basic decency and those without, and those without can fuck themselves.

    I was staying in bed at home, didn’t even think of Faerie-bothering, and went back to sleep. Typical recent Sunday, except the mildly deranged penguin was off somewhere and didn’t cause any loud explosions.
