Thank God I'm an agnostic ...

… and not an atheist… otherwise I’d be among America’s new betes noires, according to what I’ve been reading across the blogosphere. I’m on weekend duty at PJ and discovered that this morning’s number one Technorati search is Rabbi Marc Gellman for his Newsweek column categorizing atheists as “angry.” Well, as I said, I’m an agnostic, so I can’t speak for atheists. But as one of that namby-pamby crew that can’t make up its mind – even after reading St. Thomas – about the Big Question, I have to say that, yes, sometimes I am “angry.” I’m particularly angry at self-satisfied pontificators who pick on minorities.
