The Myers household is going to celebrate the day in half an hour — we’ve got the cake, we’ve got the chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream, we’ve got the hot chocolate — and we figure we’ll party by watching CNN at 8ET to see if Dawkins and Hitchens are going to go on a rampage. I hope they do, but I also sort of expect that they’re being set up by the theidiots at the Zahn show. I’ll report back on how (and if) the show goes.
Hey, the CNN show went well! Dawkins was good, emphasizing the positive aspects of atheism. The panel consisted of Ellen Johnson of American Atheists (good work, getting an American representative), Rachel Maddow of Air America, and a deranged dimwit priest named Jesse Lee Peterson who made the godless look damn good. You know we’re on the winning side when the resident theist resorts to protesting the way atheists seek to impose their evil lifestyle on Americans in exactly the same way those wicked homosexuals imposed their lifestyle on heterosexuals (that was a real “WTF?” moment). Ellen Johnson was also clear and assertive, and got the most time on the panel; Maddow was also strong in stating that freedom from religion is exactly what the Constitution guarantees us.
I’m relieved. I was worried about a hatchet job, but our secular representatives made an excellent show.
