Quote# 34157

Dawkins has also suggested that atheists, like gays, should come out of the closet. Well, what if they don't want to? I don't know if Dawkins would support "outing" atheists. Can an atheist "rights" group be far behind? Hate crimes laws to protect atheists? Affirmative action for unbelievers? An Atheist Annual Parade, complete with dancers and floats? Atheist History Month?

Actually, some of that stuff wouldn't be half bad.

I'd love Atheist history month. Maybe it would stop some of you asshats from telling us America was founded by Christians.

"I don't know if Dawkins would support "outing" atheists."

No, he wouldn't. He's clearly stated that.

Ooo, I want dancers on floats!


1/27/2008 2:03:27 AM


huh, some of that actually sounds like some pretty good stuff! "atheist history month" and laws to protect atheists from hate crimes--it's almost like this guy is secretly on our side...

Athiests protection would make me happy. No more beating up random athiests at my school.

Which month would Athiest History Month be?

Wait....is this guy implying being black is the same thing as being gay?

Scientists don't think about religion at all; They are not atheists. They are beyond such nonsense.

1/27/2008 2:23:41 AM


There are already hate crimes laws that protect atheists. They are the same ones that protect Christians and Jews on the basis of religion.

1/27/2008 2:24:22 AM


Are there really closet atheists? Why would someone hide that? I'm agnostic if anything. My brother is atheist and never shuts up about it. Don't atheists have rights like everyone else? This is just baffling. :/

stronger now

Now your finally starting to get some good ideas there Dinesh!

Keep 'em coming.

1/27/2008 2:44:51 AM


You say all those things like they'd be bad. I don't understand why.

1/27/2008 2:59:22 AM


Man, oh man, this was the SOB that was sympathizing with Al Queda in his book last year. How low can this guy go?

1/27/2008 3:01:07 AM


Dinesh D'Shitza is inconsequential. It's time that people stop paying any attention to him. Perhaps hill just slink off back under the rock from which he crawled.

How about December. That would sure piss 'em off.

Other than "outing" atheists, the rest sounds good to me.

One problem I could see with a parade would be what would be displayed. Atheists don't really have many logos or symbols. Unless we're going to have a gigantic inflatable Christopher Hitchens hovering over the floats.

My float;

A giant Alter of Darwin

with a monkey contemplating a bible, like The Thinker,
or maybe writing it...

thanks for the ideas, we'll take them to the commitee

Atheist history month would be a great thing – and I’m not even an atheist. Moreover, anti-discrimination laws already cover religious belief, which pretty much means they’d also cover its lack.

God, I dislike Dinesh D’Souza. Alas, that cretin is pretty much par for the course when it comes to the average pundit: he has more opinions than brains.

@Philbert McAdamia

You said:

The obvious caption would be the monkey contemplating:

"Am I my brother's keeper,
or my keeper's brother?

The sheer contempt and elitism in this statement speaks volumes. D'Souza is truly a douchebag.

"Hate crimes laws to protect atheists?"

Hey, Distort D'Nouza, guess what!

Virginia Code § 52-8.5(C):

For purposes of this section, "hate crime" means (i) a criminal act committed against a person or his property with the specific intent of instilling fear or intimidation in the individual against whom the act is perpetrated because of race, religion or ethnic origin or that is committed for the purpose of restraining that person from exercising his rights under the Constitution or laws of this Commonwealth or of the United States, (ii) any illegal act directed against any persons or their property because of those persons' race, religion or national origin, and (iii) all other incidents, as determined by law-enforcement authorities, intended to intimidate or harass any individual or group because of race, religion or national origin.
