Something to Rave About

The Raving Atheist, like his spiritual brethren Nat Hentoff and G.K. Chesterton's friendly sparring partner George Bernard Shaw, has never been afraid to align himself with Jews and Christians when they take a stand for something he believes in.

Those who have been following RA's blog know that the most obvious common ground he shares with certain theists is a belief that abortion kills a human being.

His post today describes how he was recently excoriated on atheist blogs and message boards because he suggested to an atheist who denounced crisis pregnancy centers that she should see one for herself — and he offered to compensate her if she volunteered there.

Regardless of what opinion you may hold of the RA because of his blog name and his past criticisms of Judaism and Christianity, I urge you to read his post — and make sure you catch the last line.
