Oprah may not have puked at the mention of atheism! It’s a breakthrough!

Greg Laden reports that Oprah actually had positive things to say about the quality of life in Denmark, and may even have been non-condemning in a brief comment about their godlessness. I am shocked, shocked I tell you, that Greg spends his afternoons watching Oprah. But after that, I’m mildly and pleasantly surprised. I doubt that much was said about it (parts of the program are online, but no, I simply can’t bear to watch it), but at least it’s one tiny step toward mainstreaming atheism.
