Yipes, and away!

Today I’m off to Terra Haute, Indiana to talk about morality and atheism.  Posting this weekend will be scarce, but I’ll be back on Monday as full of piss and vinegar as ever.

I’m just salivating at the thought of dissecting Timothy Dalrymple’s condescending response to me.  Sadly, it will have to wait.

About JT Eberhard

When not defending the planet from inevitable apocalypse at the rotting hands of the undead, JT is a writer and public speaker about atheism, gay rights, and more. He spent two and a half years with the Secular Student Alliance as their first high school organizer. During that time he built the SSA’s high school program and oversaw the development of groups nationwide. JT is also the co-founder of the popular Skepticon conference and served as the events lead organizer during its first three years.

    JT, it may be pronounced “Terr-uh Hote” but it’s spelled “TerrE Haute.” Just don’t call it Bloomington, IN. :) Have fun!

    Rumor has it that you can hear The Old Man’s swearing from there, and possibly see his tapestry of profanity still hanging over Lake Michigan.

    (Kudos to anyone who gets these references.)

    Dalrymple is filth. I’m so glad he’s not anyone I’m likely to encounter in real life, because I would have a hard time resisting the need to vomit at the sound of him. Of course, his regular commenters are no better, but they don’t have the official platform … And he’s already made underhanded threats: note that he introduces that post with

    “as a Director of Content at Patheos”

    I’m not sure it’s worth arguing with the chief pig Dalrymple. He will learn nothing from it because his mind is sealed against reality. And it sounds to me like stepping on his toes can endanger your blogging here.

    Oops, sorry, JT. Just read your “comments roundup” post with the comment from Jeremy about how you’re being mean to christians and that’s unsuitable for Patheos. Now, I’ve gone and given Jeremy an example of hating on one specific christian – me not arguing against Dalrymple’s ideas, just describing how much I detest him personally – and it’s going to look like you’re to blame for allowing/encouraging such on your blog. Sorry.

    You don’t need my permission to delete my comment if you see fit; nonetheless I hereby state that I won’t mind if you do so, since I trust your judgement here. Of course I won’t mind if you let it stand, either.
    Best wishes!

    Warner Brothers pedant that I am, I must correct you – it’s “Yoicks,” not “Yipes” (I admit that the spelling of the former may not conform to the original script, but the point stands). You need to hone up on your Daffy Duck, sir, else how can I take *anything* you say here seriously? <– ha ha
