Richard Dawkins was scheduled to speak at the Wyndgate Country Club in Michigan on Wed. Two days from now. So you can imagine that the venue was reserved a good while back. Sadly, the operators of the club saw a clip of Richard Dawkins on the O’Reilly factor. Turns out that the guy they had agreed to host was an atheist, which resulted in them calling up the CFI three days out from the event and telling them they were pulling out.
Maybe we should admit that it’s their private property, express our displeasure amicably, and hope that one of these days they’ll realize just how nice we are and start treating us with equality. If that’s your bent, you get right on that. It means you’ll be occupied and unable to get in our way while the rest of us take this issue of clear marginalization public, using it to drive the conversation, illustrate the plight of atheists, and hopefully set a precedent for future would-be bigots by making the operators of the Wyndgate Country Club sweat and sting a little bit for it.
