Interviewed by Lee Moore concerning atheist online in-fighting
Lee Moore, one of the hosts of the A-News Podcast who is working toward ‘peace talks’ aimed at putting an end to the online atheist in-fighting, recently asked me some questions in preparation for the upcoming discussions. Following are excerpts from some of the questions:
As an Atheist Activist how do you feel about the current infighting within our community?
I know that you have been labeled as a sexist/misogynist by some who disagree with your stances. Is there any factual basis for these labels or is it just an attempt to discredit you?
I have also noticed a great deal of personal attacks in a forum calling itself the Slymepit. These personal attacks have some well known bloggers over at FtB up in arms. What are your thoughts on this side of the so called “Blog Wars”?
Many Atheists from the most dedicated and celebrated activists to those who are just joining our ranks have chosen to stay out of this conflict. However as time marches on more and more contemplate leaving our movement due to the fact that we are losing our rational high ground. It is obvious to many that this conflict is hurting all of us, what would you like to see done to end this conflict?
