Sex, atheism, politics, dreams, and whatever. Thinking out loud since 2005.

Atheists and Anger.

"This has been a hard piece to write, and it may be a hard one to read. 
I'm not going to be as polite and good-tempered as I usually am in this 
blog; this piece is about anger, and for once I'm going to fucking well 
let myself be angry.

But I think it's important. One of the most common criticisms lobbed at 
the newly-vocal atheist community is, "Why do you have to be so angry?" 
So I want to talk about:

1. Why atheists are angry;

2. Why our anger is valid, valuable, and necessary;

And 3. Why it's completely fucked-up to try to take our anger away from us.

So let's start with why we're angry. Or rather -- because this is my 
blog and I don't presume to speak for all atheists -- why I'm angry."
