John is Not Great, Just Grating

Just a brief note today, since I had a lot of USDA work to do. Nick Peters pointed me to an announcement of a new John Loftus whinefest, Christianity is Not Great. Don’t blame John for the unoriginal title, necessarily – chances are Prometheus Books chose it. In that they’re just reflecting John’s penchant for recycling the reused incessantly.

Naturally I’ll see if it is worth a rebuttal, though given the overall topics, it may be mostly guests I have to recruit for writing. There’s a few things within my scope, like the Inquisition and slavery. John himself is doing a chapter on witch hunts, and based on his performance on that subject in the past (TWeb and elsewhere) it’ll be like John MacEnroe on good tennis manners.
