Atheists Can Be So Stupid
This video is embarrassing as an atheist document. We didn't think these actors were Christians for a second - not one second - which isn't just our statement on bad acting but saying these quotes are dumb, because the Christians being quoted are dumb: they're attacking NewAgers - not atheists - and don't realize it. That makes them too-easy targets for criticism. Low hanging fruit. Which seems to be all the activist anti-Christian wing of atheists are interested in. They don't seem to realize fired-up Burning Man refugees are equally as annoying, and wrong-headed, as the people they're attacking. This is why TMR doesn't align ourselves with them: they're part of the over-the-top problem. And that, on occasion, includes Richard Dawkins. It definitely includes Sam Harris.
We wish they would just stop and try doing something constructive. Is that really so hard?
