more on "angry atheists"

Vjack at Atheist Revolution has some comments on last week’s Newsweek piece on angry atheists. This is the best:

As for the generalization about atheists having "uncomfortable personal histories,"” you forget that we are all born atheists and only arrive at religion through indoctrination. One does not need tragedy or bad experiences with clergy to arrive at atheism. The study of Western philosophy, history, and a close reading of the Christian bible was more than enough for me to rediscover natural atheism. [emphasis added]

The Raving Atheist has extensive remarks that dissect Gellman’s piece section by section.
