I'm an atheist, and you got an "AMEN" out of this proud apostate. Excellent article: thought-provoking and engagingly written. Clear truth-to-power that's more than just well-constructed polemical flourishes (though, yeah, that as well) and tasty rhetoric (the tastiest).
PLEASE, keep speaking up and out from what seems to be a strong and reasonable ethical center. Broken people are gonna be broken ... especially in an Interwebz comments sections. But the harder they land on a reflective surface they don't like, the more potent that surface is, I've found. So, keep it up. You've got a Follower in me.
