Atheist Bashing - 2008

I believe that one thing we can look forward to in 2008 is a constant barrage of statements to the effect that atheists are despirate, in the throws of panic because we are losing the battle to win over the public. Religion has us on the ropes and because we are cornered we are getting particularly vicious.

It will appear in thing such as This letter to the editor.

They will repeat it loudly enough and often enough to get people to believe it, because that which people hear the most often is that which they will accept as true (for the most part).

The only effective counter to this is to put effort into making sure that this message is not the message that people hear the most often, or at least not at a ratio that its defenders would prefer.
