Today’s Quotation

…the extent to which the “new atheism” — which is mostly like the old atheism but involves people acting like jerks — is specifically bound up with some problematic anti-Muslim sentiments. (Matthew Yglesias)

The bit about Muslims is what Yglesias thinks matters in his post, but I rather like the characterization of Hitchens and Dawkins (the new atheists Yglesias mentions by name).

    Also, I think I had one beer too many earlier with Anil… oops.
