Liberal blames society, bad childhoods

Scott Alexander wonders why the New Atheists are so unpopular. One obvious oversimplification is that they’re assholes. Look at Richard Dawkins. Look at the alarming overlap with the Gamerhaters and the Alt Reich. Look at how many of them proclaim that religion is a crutch and kicking it out from under people is the most fun of all.

Here Benjamin Corey describes how he managed to get over the supposedly admirable state of being “God-fearing.” and remain a Christian. It seems obvious to me that scaring a kid like that is a form of child abuse. And the abused often become abusers.
