You can be skeptical and friendly at the same time.

Daniel is back with another montage of some of the awful things done in the name of God over the past month:
Hemant Mehta is the chair of Foundation Beyond Belief and a high school math teacher in the suburbs of Chicago. He began writing the Friendly Atheist blog in 2006. His latest book is called The Young Atheist's Survival Guide.
Cue the angry wails from religious lurkers who miss the point even when it’s explained to them in 3… 2…
If the brandy in the cupboard didn’t suck so hard, I’d be tempted to play the “atheists who write mean words are meanier than theists who rape, imprison and murder over their religion” drinking game, even at this early hour.
I hope you have plenty of Troll-Flakes on hand… The FA blog seems to have become a big blip on the radar!
More money and notoriety for Hemant, more entertainment for us while waiting for callbacks or the rice to cook or what-have-you.
In good news, the UK just approved gay marriage. Queen Elizabeth gave her stamp of approval.
Technically just England and Wales. Scotland will get there within a year maybe, but the religious nuts in Northern Ireland won’t do anything.
Good news indeed, but the Church of England only threw in
the towel very late in the proceedings saying they realized that it was the peoples wish – and the Catholics are still shouting.
Wait, religion has done lots of good stuff for us. Just last month religion has turned a skin cell into a embryonic stem cell. This procedure will no doubtly aid in the research and hopefully cure of a lot of genetic diseases. Wait. I’m sorry. I was thinking of science, not religion. My bad.
