      I'd have thought this kind of post a false flag attack from a wingnut blog.  Even now, I would not be surprised to see it show up on one of them as an example of what they would call liberal hypocrisy.

      Gotta watch that.  We've seen it before.

      It was well written and had sufficient information to those who read carefully and  understood the clues (and frankly weren't simply responding to the title).

      The absurdity of the issue raised by the atheist is brilliant:

      somehow I find that blasphemous and disrespectful of a deity
      .

      Yes, I often worry about things disrespecting things I know don't exist. I always worry that sparkly confetti blasphemes Tinkerbell and her fairy dust!

      And the atheist suggesting he might employ Swendenborg's techniques?  Ironic perfection! (Or maybe perfect irony?)  

      I liked your diary, Karen.

      Everything is meaningless, except of course it's not.
