Perhaps Cardinal Pell may have learned something about leading a caring, purposeful, meaningful life had he attended The Amazing Meeting last weekend. He may also have learned something about actually embracing the universal ethics and morals advanced in the teachings of Jesus Christ.
Chrys Stevenson, “Revenge of the Godless Geeks“, Online Opinion, 8/12/10
I had a wonderful time attending James Randi’s The Amazing Meeting in Sydney and was outraged to hear Cardinal Pell’s comments on the same weekend that the faithless were
coarse,uncaring and led lives without purpose – particularly when our actions at TAM proved just the opposite!
I wrote an article, “Revenge of the Godless Geeks”, refuting Pell’s statement and it’s been published on Australia’s Online Opinion – an e-journal for social and political debate. It’s the first time I’ve been published by Online Opinion and I’m hoping that, if my article proves popular, they may let me publish again on issues of importance to the atheist/skepticalcommunities. (NB: I wasn’t paid for the article so I’m not raising funds here!)
So, I’m asking my readers and subscribers to please visit the link below, read the article and, if you think it’s interesting, ‘like’ it, tweet it, maybe make a comment and pass the link on through your own networks.
