The New York Times has run a piece in their Motherlode blog profiling the retired San Francisco hotel credit manager who is trying to make circumcision illegal. The comments are, mostly, a tiresome litany that belie the bankruptcy of a society that is slowly stripping itself of its moral foundation.
It is to me axiomatic that the latent tyranny of a majority (or vocal minority) with the best of intentions is the greatest shadow across the American polity. One can only believe this individual’s campaign hides a broader agenda. Yet no one is asking that question. To call an Atheist intolerant would be an unacceptable affront.
