ISSA gets it right on dealing with Brother Jed.

The Illini Secular Student Alliance has been preparing for notorious campus preacher Brother Jed.  They’ve taken some things you’re bound to hear him say and produced a bunch of bingo cards to hand out to the on-lookers.

There will be those who say that mocking him makes us look bad.  They’ll insist that we should disagree respectfully.  I say hogwash.  If you treat outlandishly silly things as anything but outlandishly silly, you’re giving them the modicum of respect they crave, but that they are unwilling to earn by being rational.  Religion has every other advantage, it doesn’t need charity it doesn’t deserve.

Jed is a circus.  Treat him like one and other people will be much more likely to see him that way.

And don’t forget to have fun.  🙂  Activism with a genuine smile is always much more likely to get other people excited to join you.
