Hemant Mehta has a write up on how Time author Joe Klein went out of his way to accuse atheists and secular humanists of having not helped out in Oklahoma after the tornados. This is on top of that fiasco of Wolf Blitzers, and contrary to the fact that atheist and secular humanist groups instantly went into action to help. Instantly.
Joe Klein should look into his own heritage for people making broad brushed UNTRUE and derogatory statements about entire groups of people. Then he should hang his head in shame. And then, after he’s done that for a while he should issue a very sincere apology.
I actually like much of the stuff Klein writes. But this comment of his is absurd, offensive, exclusionary, and biased. Not only that but the TIME editor that let that comment slip by needs to learn what being a professional editor at a magazine like TIME involves, because this is not that.
The details are here, at The Friendly Atheist.
Mr. Klein’s twitter is in the title of this post, in case you want to comment directly to him.
