“The principal concern of secularists must be the extent to which the actions of religious believers frustrate the needs of other human beings, rather than the extent to which religion gets something right [or wrong].”

    You shall know them by their fruits, eh? Interesting. So I only care about the religiosity of my child’s science teacher to the extent that her delusion prevents her from teaching my child about, say, evolution. I guess I can agree with that but I have to wonder if such a mindset isn’t truly a disqualification since how can you fairly present material that you believe in your heart insults your celestial father figure?

    P.S. – she was just terminated, thank god.
