Last evening, in a Twitter conversation, some of us we’re discussing the latest kerfuffle between Mick Nugent and The Usual Suspects.
What I found interesting is the fact that, as I wrote about before, it looked as if Mick had awakened to the realization that there are some that do nothing but attempt to generate controversy with the atheist world.
Some said that he really knew about this all along, but I disagree to a certain extent. Most atheists likely have no idea about this so-called “rift” between atheists and even if they do, probably don’t give a damn about it. Mick was aware, but I don’t think he was aware of the extent of the madness that has crept into a small, but vocal, subset of self-professed skeptics and atheists.
He’s learning the hard way what many of us have known for a few years now: dare to disagree or call out bad behavior, become a target yourself.
