Reach Reachables

You don't reason with fascists or bullies, you expose them, prevail over them, and then marginalize them before they can hurt other people.

I have recently learned this the hard way. Sam Harris pulled off a neat trick he helped turn secular atheists into fascits that talk like jehovahs witnesses

You have my sympathies -- Philosophically I've been a cheerful atheist for decades, and as a queer who lived for years in the South I've had plenty of reason to fear and despise bloody-minded intolerant evangelicals on top of that -- but the rise of militant and monocultural atheism is an ugly, annoying, wrongheaded, reactionary development.
