… you’re not reasonable.
That’s like contrasting yourself with grand inquisitor Torquemada to prove you support civil rights.
In “This Saturday on the National Mall in Washington, It’s the Unreasonable Rally” (Evolution News & Views, March 20, 2012), Jonathan M. comments,
Since the Reason Rally takes so much pride in exercising reason, we might expect that they would welcome respectful dialogue and conversation with people of viewpoints differing from their own. Not so. This became clear with the launch of “True Reason,” a Christian response to the Reason Rally (this group also produced a book responding to the event).
What makes this so ironic is that the [widely denounced hate group] Westboro Baptist Church were specially invited to the Reason Rally — presumably for purposes of contrast between the atheists (who wish to portray themselves as beacons of reason) and religious fanatics.
And if the Reason Ralliers set the bar any lower, ignoring the “Call Before You Dig” warnings, they’ll hit the dam gas main.
