PZ Myers Sued

This is an interesting story.

Prof Myers doesn't comment on it (yet), for obvious reasons, but Panda's Thumb is all over it.

If calling some douchebag a "classic crackpot" can get you sued for $15 million, what's calling him a douchebag gonna cost?

If this suit is successful, it will mean the death of the internet.
Who hasn't insulted a God psychotic on this board alone?

This Christ-psychotic millionaire retard ought to be committed to an asylum along with the other christian retard, the Judge that sued cleaners for 50 million for loosing his pants!

Christians and other folks infected with delusional beliefs think and reason like schizophrenics or temporal lobe epileptics. Their morality is dictated by an invisible friend called Jesus.

Cal, let's be fair. They lost his pants while he was still in them.

Evidently, the side of good and right triumphs again.

Pz Meyers should be on television.

One of the most irrational of all the conventions of modern society is the one to the effect that religious opinions should be respected....That they should have this immunity is an outrage. There is nothing in religious ideas, as a class, to lift them above other ideas. On the contrary, they are always dubious and often quite silly.

So do I get to include PZ Myers as the fifth New Atheist?

1. Richard Dawkins
2. Sam Harris
3. Daniel Dennet
4. Christopher Hitchens
5. PZ Myers?

Right?
