Yes, entirely too far past middle school 'humor'.

At least my when I sink my teeth into a steak they don't stay there.

It helps that your carers mush it up for you first so you don't choke.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

Another knee-slapper there...you are really on your game.

You're too cranky these days to appreciate it.

If you mean he was insufficiently sensitive to the wishes of other people who would prefer he not speak about the subjects they don't want to hear anyone speak about, then I suppose they might think of him as an asshole. But it's not the same thing.

Lots of atheists acknowledge Hitchens was an asshole

http://greatapes.ca/blog/2011/12/the-pro...-hitchens/

I read that blog before you posted it (when I was looking for examples, myself), and I've seen it said elsewhere... but I've never seen an example of it.

Rather, it appears to me that because he didn't tiptoe around people's sacred cows, but was plain-spoken (politely, unless they made him mad with aggressive speech) about things as he saw them, they called him an asshole... and they did it enough times that the appellation stuck even in the minds of people who should not so readily adopt the perspective of angered theists.

However, like the "Uncle Tom" effect, there are some who think it is not the place of their fellow atheists to tread upon the ground declared as sacred by the believers. They'd rather we just shut up and "go along to get along"; this is, of course, exactly what the theists would prefer, as well, so they can go about their merry way trying to (re-)establish theocratic toeholds in our culture.

But as I said, I have never actually seen an example of Hitch behaving in a way that I'd think of as "being an asshole". He has certainly been wrong about things, and expressed opinions that disturb/disgust even me, so I'm not a fan of him in the sense of a fan or devotee. I just don't see that the bad reputation actually fits the man.

As I said, if there are examples, I would like to see them, and I will readily acknowledge it.

RS and Heywood,

I think Christopher Hitchens was an asshole. I think Richard Dawkins is an asshole too. However, there are a few key differences between Hitchens, Dawkins and Heywood that I think need to pointed out.

Hitchens and Dawkins are recognized as leaders in their fields. Their views and opinions matter.

In spite of their abrasive tones, they’ve been very successful at communicating their message. People forgive (even enjoy) the ill-mannered approach they take.

Neither Hitchens nor Dawkins adopted monikers that sounded out “Hey would you blow me.” Inviting people to suck your dick drives a wedge between you and your audience and causes people to develop a negative bias toward you.

With success comes the flexibility to be a little bold. Hitchens and Dawkins have a proven success record that can be demonstrated through media articles, book sales Youtube hits and lecture attendance.

Heywood, can you point to any place on this forum when you’ve enlightened your audience and their perspective has changed? However low I expect your success rate to actually be, I’m still expecting that you’ve had some success. Why else would you keep coming back using the same tactics if you have a 100% failure rate?

Forgive my snickering at you comparing yourself to Christopher Hitchens ... that shit's just funny. A lot funnier than the slams you were trying out on Anj.

Conclusion: We should expect atheists to behave much better than religious people.
Actually, I believe it's: Without God, good people would still do good things and bad people would still do bad things; but for a good person to do something truly evil requires religion.

RE: Anti-Gay Pastor's Home Destroyed By God's Wrath
Morning wood again shows he's an idiot

1. Atheists not needing religion to be good doesn't mean there are't any bad atheists i can name plenty (just none on this site at least none yet)

2. Begin a theist doesn't make one good either i can name tons of theist assholes Matthew Slick being number 1 in assholery. (worst still unlike Hitchens he makes excuses for his behavior)

3. As for how morning wood is treated on this site nope he still is the sole asshole on this site and is treated as such. His treatment is solely of his own making

Lastly no one can or has ever done evil in the name of atheism such a concept is impossible by definition but evil can be committed by atheists for reasons that have nothing to do with there atheism
