I have found the traitor!

I have found that the more a religious figure rails against homosexuality, the higher the odds that they fondle penis in their spare time.

This lax standard of consistency apparently holds true of fishy atheist pugilists as well.  Whenever a noble atheist blogger defects to the side of justice in the battle to raise funds for Camp Quest, PZ immediately brands them a traitor.  But look what this picture reveals!

It is the maestro of mollusks himself sitting all chipper with god’s arm wrapped comfortably around his shoulder!  Next thing you know, he’ll be asking you for 10% of your income while he throws on his Rolex drives his jaguar to class.

You should give instead to the team wrestling with each other to be the next to give the good lord a solid intellectual kick in balls.  Give to Team Awesome!

To topple the Tyrant of Atheist Blogging, we will need your help. Check out Greta Christina’s most recent post, Jen McCreight’s most recent post, Adam Lee’s most recent post, and this post by me. Share them on your facebook wall! Make them your status! Tweet them! Encourage your friends to do likewise! Every little bit counts! Got $5 lying around? Toss it in the hat! It’s all for the kids (and the victory of Team Awesome). Show the world that atheists can band together to accomplish even the seemingly impossible!

Also, got fund-raising ideas? What would you like to see me do in exchange for money? I will totally be your dancing monkey in exchange for donations, just let me know what you want! Want to send me to church? Want me to journey to the creation museum, document everything, and do an in-depth blog all on my own dime? Want me to try and pull a cop over for speeding? How much is it worth to you? Let’s talk dollars here people!

    Please note: I am on the left side, the sinister side, of the Deity. In your devious cropping, you have hidden the person best beloved of the Lord, clapped to his bosom on his right side…Jen. Of Team Awful.

    Go to the Creation Museum, sedate and kidnap Ken Ham, then when he wakes up, convince him that twenty years have passed and that teh gayz have taken over his beloved America. Also, that the Rapture did in fact happen, and Jesus was TOTALLY FABULOUS, and condemned all the right-wing nutjobs.

    For that, I will donate the entire contents of DAFT’s bank account.

    Andrew – I wonder if the SSA would give a grant to fund that project…

    Jesse, I’m pretty sure that fits the definition of “Mobilizing Students For A New Enlightenment.” It’s just an enlightenment of slightly smaller scale.

    Hi JT,

    We met out in Iowa Land. In terms of fund-raising, the dispute with PZ is cute but it only pulls in your most loyal fans. I can’t forward your blog to my parents, my non-atheist friends, my atheist friends who have no idea who the celebrities of the movement are.

    I think you should focus on specific programs. There’s the “buy a new canoe fund”, or the “stage a theatre show fund”, or the “build a zipline” fund. I had a 50-foot zipline as a kid; it was awesome.

    Also, I think you should put up (with permission) specific cities and say, we want to fund children to attend CampQuest from the following cities, and then make the cities compete. Unlike PZ vs. SSA competition, city-vs.-city competition is something that anyone can understand and get behind.

    Also, your blog posts — although everyone who is a fan understands CampQuest — should stand on their own. Yes, it’s repetitive to put CampQuest’s goal in the first paragraph over and over again. But asking people to click through to learn more about CampQuest is the wrong way around. How many TV ads go the following way: “So! We’re asking for money! Please donate now! If you care about why, please click this link.” :)

    People respond to real human stories. If you do the city-vs.-city thing, I would like to see photos or video of cute kids looking into the camera making us want to hug them all up with donations, and watch your ethnic diversity, of course. That’s my two cents. If you want the 50-cent version, email me.

    -Johnny
