The Globe Stumbles

For John, BLUFRespect for the ideas of others seems to be slipping.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

Today's edition of The Boston Globe has a long article in the "K" Section (Ideas) refuting that there was an Easter Resurrection.  The name of the article is "What happened on Easter?"  The writer is Ms Ruth Graham and it is an interview with Scholar Bart Ehrman.

So, on the highest holy day of the Christian Faith, in a year when Western and Eastern Easter come at the same time, their Lordships at The Globe think it is OK to put up a pretty long item (page K1 and K3), debunking the faith of millions.  I am now waiting to see them do something like it regarding Islam, but I am not holding my breath.  I don't recall them being too strong on how wrong it was for the Department of State to condemn the videographer out in California who made the 15 minute clip talking about the oppression of Coptic Christians in Egypt.

I suspect The Globe suffers from The Yale Disease.

But, it is Easter so we should be open to forgiving.

And, yet, it is tacky to publish it on Easter.

  The On-Line title is "A provocative new theory of Easter".  Maybe they think Christians don't do the Internet.
  Some may recall this incident by remembering how the Department of State tried to blame the Benghazi imbroglio on this video, rather than the planned attack that it was.  National Security Advisor Susan Rice hit five prime time news shows with this bit of disinformation/maskirovka.

I was busy celebrating Easter, I wasn't reading the Globe. So I assume they were catering to those who would be reading the paper on Easter Sunday.

Honest Atheist Tim O’Neill on Bad Atheist History

" Atheists who attempt to use history in their arguments who don’t do these things can not only end up getting things badly wrong, but can also wind up looking as misinformed or even as dogmatic as fundamentalists. And that’s not a good look."
