Consumer Christ

BlueGirl has a callout for submissions to Blog Against Theocracy this weekend if you have something you'd like to contribute. And before you go getting all samharris on their ass, note their list of issues :
~No religious discrimination.
~PRO End-of-Life Care (no more Terri Schiavo travesties)
~Reproductive health decisions made by individuals, not religious "majorities"
~Democracy not Theocracy Academic Integrity (like, a rock is as old as it is, not as old as the Bible says)
~Sound Science (good bye so-called "intelligent" design)
~Respect for ALL families (based on love, not sexual orientation. Hellooooo.)
~And finally, The right to worship, OR NOT.
So for all of us atheists asking where the real Christians speaking out against the Christian right got to, here ya go : Christians willing to go to the mat for the right of atheists to be atheists because they believe this to be what their religion demands of them.
Damn if I'm not getting all weepy.

Dripping acrylic or melting chocolate?

Great idea, this, if it improves dialogue between progressive Christians and atheists.

For what it's worth, Alison, I always knew you meant the Christian right when you said xian, even though I know you don't support Christianity either.
