Participated for the first time this year in the blogswarn "Against Theocracy." I will never do so again. Now as I read the other essays, I see too many atheists used the opportunity to skip the actual subject matter and blog against religion, instead. I didn't know that's what I was participating in -- that fanatical denial of other people's beliefs is exactly why I don't want our nation run by zealots in the first place. I regret that this is the result of your efforts. It seemed a good idea and I passed the link around. Now, I'm sorry I did.
I don't expect you to change anything but I'm sure you must be curious about why people participate and why some never return. For me, linking my friends to essays calling them retards and idiots for having faith in God was not something I wanted to do. I thought the project was about supporting separation of Church and State.
...could you point out specific posts where you saw this. I'd like to leave a comment there along the lines you spoke of.
I'm also going to publish your email (no names) at my own blog. I think it's important that this point be made, too. There's no shortage of egomania in the blogosphere and what you've documented is merely that. Paul said, "none of these things move me"...we need to be less impressed with what those who are wrong or hateful are saying and simply love more.
