God hates women

 

Allison Kilkenny is doing one helluva job at pissing religionists off over at The Huffington Post.  It’s good to see an angry woman in a domain recently dominated by males such as DD-HH (Dawkins-Dennett-Harris-Hitchens). Still I can’t help to think that she reminds me of Maude Lebowski, and her famous “Beaver” rant (Does the female form make you uncomfortable, Mr Lebowski?)

    You know the writing was actually quite funny, in spite of the seriousness of the issue and all, so I was laughing quite shamelessly. As far as my stand on religion is concerned I decided to read the parts in the bible that I um, like. I’m a bit of a hippercrit, like she mentioned.

    yeah, she did elicit quite a few laughs from me…. I think humor is perhaps the most effective way to convey a serious point.
    Believe me, I understand what it feels like to try to reconcile one’s faith with a source containing quite unpleasant parts. I was raised Christian, and tried to pick the parts I liked in the same way as you for quite some time – until I realized I didn’t buy into any of it, and became a full-blown atheist. I won’t tell you which path to take – you have to make up your mind for yourself. But I clearly prefer a situation where there are religious moderates who pick the parts they prefer, to a situation where every religious person is a fundie who forces a literal interpretation of his faith onto his neighbours…
