Ophelia channels Stedman

Go read why the left and the Tea Party must work together:

This is my healing work that I plan to do. I believe in love and reaching out and bridges and unity. I hope you all wish me luck and every success with my work, which I will be working on in many ways for many weeks to come, and which I will be reporting on via Twitter, Facebook, the New York Times, the Washington Post, People, USA Today, the Huffington Post, Tikkun, First Things, Christianity Today, my seven blogs, some of my friends’ blogs which I haven’t counted yet, and CBS News. In spite of all this fame and exposure I remain impressively humble and kind of bashfully surprised by all the success and approval I report daily via Twitter, Facebook, the New York Times, the Washington Post, People, USA Today, the Huffington Post, Tikkun, First Things, Christianity Today, my seven blogs, and some of my friends’ blogs which I haven’t counted yet.

  1. This is the conservative mentality at work. Conservatives fear change, and so they look toward stability and order in the traditional way of doing things.

    And when you’re in a liberal progressive movement, being conservative makes absolutely no sense, because the movement is seeking change, not keeping the status quo the same.

    Atheism is not going to be a solution by itself, because atheists are not necessarily liberal minded or rational.

    New Atheism must seek to fix itself into a coherent social or political philosophy, otherwise it will schism and fragment based on personalities and conformity before long.

      1. Eh, no thanks. I’m far too burned out and pessimistic–as well as uncharming and uncharismatic and illiterate–to pursue a project that flatly contradicts human nature.

        I will, however, do what I do best, be a right royal pain in the arse and general social gadfly.

  2. But the left and the Tea Party already do work together.

    Oh, sorry, I forgot. The Dems are not in the least bit left.
