A bigot amongst us

Just a quick note to highlight just what we are up against as atheists in this country.  A recent piece in our very own Irish Independent can be seen here.  This article perfectly illustrates the ignorance and intolerance of the religious mind  – where truth is not a requirement, and all generalisations must be used to punctuate their fallacious argument.  The article is erroneous with the facts and is sloppy journalism at its worst.  I will be writing my own letter of disgust to the newspaper, just as was done already.  The UK’s freethinker website has also done a piece on it here.  You will also note the use of the egregious ‘militant atheist’!
