On Wednesday, when Mr. Kurtz stopped by the center, where he still keeps an office, he found the locks had been changed. Mr. Lindsay told me that Mr. Kurtz did not need the new key because he "has no connection with us."What?
Up 'til now I've had entirely warm feelings for CfI. I've published an article and a book review in Free Inquiry, buy it off and on, and like the diverse crowd CfI includes on its staff, pages, and airwaves. Good for Lindsay that he hasn't caved under the pressure of the new-only atheists (not to be confused with the merely new atheists), and excluded other voices. The Blasphemy Day thing is stupid and unproductive, but reasonable people can disagree. (Or can they? See yesterday's post!)
But... Paul Kurtz isn't even allowed onto the premises? That's unbelievable. Kurtz's splinter organization now merits a closer look.
