Shameless Self-Promotion

The Beliefnet interview I did has been picked up by some pretty top-notch blogs!

The Freakonomics blog named it one of today’s FREAK-est links!

One commenter there says this:

It’s nice to see a tolerant atheist.
Most of the atheists I know, especially the people who play an atheists on-line, are less tolerant than a taliban warlord.

Yeesh.

Things don’t get much better at The Huffington Post, where commenters said the following:

Mr. Mehta better watch his rear end while he’s with that minister.

Because priests are gay homosexuals. And they like little Indian boys.

Umm… ew. (I’m going to go put on a second pair of pants now.)

Selling your soul happens every day on Capitol Hill/1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Perhaps eBay can streamline the process for these folks.

So what he’s saying is that I have something in common with George Bush.

Reading this blog makes one thank god that one is an atheist and for the literate atheist prose of Christopher Hitchins. All too often we atheists have the writing skills of the man who sold his soul. This blog is as dull as THE UPPER ROOM & the bulk of what is called devotional literature. Perhaps there is something to navel contemplation-if you contemplate Paris Hilton’s navel.

I think he’s referring to HuffPo, not this blog. But dammit, my writing skills are not seen in the Beliefnet article! It was a transcribed phone conversation, and my talking isn’t the same as my writing!

While I’m doing shameless self-promotions, Benj at Atheista put this site on his list of blogs that he “always looks forward to reading.” Thanks, Benj!

    The person who wrote this has only himself to blame. Is it my fault that he frequents the flamewar shitholes of the internet?

    That’s disgusting! Something about that sounds not only disgusting, but racist and discriminating against priest. Oh sure, the Episcopal church has at least one openly gay ordained priest, but not all priest are gay. There is a million things wrong with that statement.
