Like clockwork, there are certain agents provocateurs among us who will write broad-brush mockings of Christians at Christian holidays. I'm used to it: heck, I've been here a while. I know the drill.

Now, not all atheists on Daily Kos are nasty, and I enjoy engaging with some atheist diarists. Some, however, just love to poke you in the eye.

So here's my challenge for anyone who wishes to take me up on it: write a screed against Jewish people and Passover. Write a screed against Eid or Ramadan. Write me a diary mocking Dr. King or Bishop Robinson because of their religious beliefs, or against Dorothy Day or Peter Maurin, the founders of the Catholic Worker Movement and prominent social justice activists.

There are some very obnoxious "Christians", that is clear. However, not ALL religious people are right-wing or nuts.

Take me up on it. I want to see ONE atheist diary mocking Jewish people. After all, they are "Ghost-Worshipers" too.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
