Atheism is all about ME
Father Dwight Longenecker over at Standing on My Head has this to say:
The Daily Telegraph reports on the 'coolest atheist T Shirts' here. What strikes me about these slogans is how lame they are. Really, can't they do better than that? Each one really says, "Hey, I'm a sophomore in college now! See how smart I am?"
