He is clearly quite peeved. It looks like the final straw was that I, as he claims, “gleefully endorsed” a post on The 5 Most Awful Atheists. Actually, what I did was challenge the author to write something positive about atheists, and agreed that the criticisms were valid, but not gleefully, and I also said …

I’m supposed to be raising money for Camp Quest — I’m competing against a team of tiny, gnome-like little people — and they’re actually edging ahead of me. But now a distraction has come up. Kasese Humanist Primary School is trying to raise money for a chicken coop, so they can get eggs to feed …

Camels with Hammers is raising money for the SSA Blogathon by doing interviews, and has done one with me. Greg Laden has written a novel, proceeds to go to SSA. Greta Christina is posting kitten photos <shudder> for the cause. I guess it’s working, since they’re up to $76,000 now.

So @rhysmorgan and @whatkatie_did are also having a fundraiser (it seems like everyone is!), this time to benefit a rape crisis organization for England and Wales. It’s called the Fuck the Patriarchy Readathon, and they’re promising to read 20 books and blog about them this month. The books are all over the place, from Twilight …

To raise money for the SSA, some of our bloggers are doing marathon blogging sessions. Biodorkwas at it all night long (she’s probably unconscious right now), and now Ophelia has started up. By the way, Brianne will be at Convergence in July. Like you, too?
