CNN has this “Belief” Blog page that gives all sides a chance to present their point of view. And there usually is a few thousand typical dumbed down American “Duh!” comments made and repeated hundreds of cliché times perhaps by a few dozen regular trolls left and right for the sake of balance and appearance of modern style “Journalism”.
This past weekend I think they had this piece about Todd Stiegel being the new face of Atheism in America. He has spent something like three and a half million dollars on billboards on buses selling the new Atheist religion and or dogmas of belief in anti-theism, is that a new word?
Well I am all well and glad that the Atheists are getting out of the closet for free of past fears that some red neck bible thumpers and Wayne Lapierre kill ya with a gun dandy lobbyist types will kill you for not believing in the angry desert god of the mono-theists (sounds like a disease?).
Todd’s bio about getting to the point of being a good Catholic Boy and giving up the faith when he realized in college, after reading the bible, that it is a poorly constructed OT and NT piece of uninspired writing – the bio leaves out the 100,000 word book that should fill in the gap between uninspired bible book stuff and how he got to Atheist.
Maybe he is just a Areligionist like me and wasting all his time on the dogma of that Atheist shit.
The CNN piece sounded like it was a polished knock off of Todd’s Foundation’s mimeographed PR handout appealing for mo’ money, mo’ money like any other whoring church, synagogue, mosque, temple, storefront on the planet.
Of course Todd is soft spoken and affable and lives in laid back North Carolina where he presently makes his base trying to spend the billions his family made in chemicals or Pharmas or something like that.
Three and a half million Todd – chump change! Time to pump the chumps for their change?
Todd is no loud mouthed drunk like Hitchens or over educated academic don like Dawkins.
Stiefel and his real long term agenda, whatever it is, is tied up presently, short term, in with a coalition of other middle of the road, so-called non-religious but money collecting types, the Secular Coalition of America.
