Random Quote #58 topic: atheism, Wayne Aiken's atheism cookie file

"She had the dubious distinction of being known as America's most outspoken
atheist," NBC's Tom Brokaw said (9/30/96) in introducing a jokey segment
on Madalyn Murray O'Hair, who has been missing for the past year. It's
impossible to imagine Brokaw making light of the disappearance of someone
who has the "dubious distinction" of being a leader of America's Catholics
or Jews--but atheists are assumed to be fair game for ridicule or attack.
That must be why NBC quoted a "conservative Christian commentator" as saying
of O'Hair: "If she is indeed dead, then she's burning in the fires of hell."
Plenty of fundamentalist Christians believe that all Catholics burn in hell,
but we doubt we'll see NBC quoting any of them the next time a pope dies."
