I haven't had a chance to read all of this, but what I've read is fantastic. Great work! Are you considering sending this to those fundy fuckheads?

I remember those pamphlets they used to sell at Christian bookstores (and still do, I'm sure), comparing all the "cults" and other religions to Christianity. Does anyone else on the planet put this much effort into slandering other faiths in five-color print jobs? Man.

Unfortunately, if only I were so brave. I'm not sure what good it would do to send this to the authors of the original article, beyond an endless spitfight.

Thanks for the read, I honestly appreciate it. I have a little booklet given to me by Jehovah's Witnesses once, which is meant to truthfully question evolution, but quickly gets into evangelism before it questions enough. It was a strange, strange read.

Unfortunately enough, again, I've seen publications come out from certain other schools which put a lot of effort into slandering other faiths, five-colour print jobs and all. Atheists, Muslims, Christians, just everyone out there has some fundamentalist wing with publishing muscle. None of the mudslinging really appeals to me very much -- it often seems such a waste of good trees, but I guess extremism is one necessary offshoot of critical-thinking.
