Snarky Exchange

Hoover Institution scholar Dinesh D’Souza uses the VT killings as an opportunity to take some cheap shots at atheists.

So, Hilzoy at Obsidian Wings snarks right on back. It’s nothing D’Souza didn’t invite.

You don’t have to believe in God to be outraged and saddened by what happened in Blacksburg. All it takes is an ounce of conscience.

The terrible events of Monday do nothing to prove, or disprove, the existence of God or the moral worth of those who debate that issue. If God were to exist, and were to be the sort of entity to pass moral judgments, how would that God evaluate D’Souza’s exploitation of the personal tragedies of thirty families to take a swipe at people with whom he disagrees?

Hat tip to a fellow non-leftist atheist, Rick Moran.
