Yesterday, I was interviewed by a reporter who was concerned about those aggressive atheists who were putting up offensive billboards in New Jersey, saying horrible things like that religion is a myth. Have we gone too far? Aren’t we turning people off with such rudeness?
I had to ask her if she’d ever looked at Christian proselytizers with that same critical view. I wish I’d seen this story about Brother Dean beforehand.
“I believe there are certain qualities that may be worthy of rape,” the street preacher added. “If a woman dresses proactively, gets blackout drunk, and is wearing really revealing clothing, then I would say that she is partially responsible for the rape.”
Or watch his approach.
I am getting a little tired of people who accuse mild-mannered atheists who think people are better than their religion of being fanatics, yet can live in a world where Christian loons are standing on street corners, yelling hatred at passers-by, and other Christians seriously propose disenfranchising atheists, and these people simply take that as a matter of course. I guess if it happens constantly, it’s not newsworthy. An atheist clearly states their disbelief, though…Shock. Horror. How dare they?
