saturday's guardian had an interesting and surprising (for the guardian) article the athiest delusion arguing that secular athiesm has become ugly because of its fundamentalist/evangelical tone. the article ends by saying

i haven't read it yet but becky garrison takes these guys on as well in her book the new athiest crusaders.
