White Middle Class Atheists

This blog post on white middle class atheists had me laughing until the tears were rolling down my cheeks. It captures to a tee a certain kind of rigid angry parochial self-blind atheism I've encountered all too often.

The sort I call "storefront atheism," because these atheists are like members of some shabby narrow isolated blinkered little storefront church. You know, the sort of atheists who can't for the life of them imagine that there's ever been any form of belief (or nonbelief) on earth that wasn't shaped and formed in the image of white American middle class fundamentalism.
