James Mackey in Today's Irish Times

Post by canasta42 » Tue Jul 05, 2011 3:28 pm

Could somebody who is more articulate than I am - and who's blood is not at boiling point - please demolish this guy.

His arguments are so false and so insidious it may be worth considering a complaint to the editor.

He claims that atheism is a form of theology.

He also says that Ivana Bacik is a 'recently self-outed atheist'. I don't know what he means by recent.

I am under time pressure at the moment and I would need to take a very long walk to calm down before addressing this idiot.

This sort of thing is only going to get worse. We're entering an era where:
a) Religion is approaching its final death throes
b) The print media is already in its final death throes
