The Rational Response Squad

A new American group called the Rational Response Squad has been exciting some strong opinions, not least on the Internet – partly because of their Blasphemy Challenge on YouTube. I’ve even been asked to refer to the RRS in my web site essay on “Extremism On The Net”.
I actually share the atheist position of the RSS and don’t regard them as in any way comparable to the organisations I described in my page on “Extremism On The Net”. However, I can understand why their views and activities would upset many Christians and I personally don’t see the point of baiting people who sincerely hold religious views even if I think these views utterly misguided.
These are important issues that should be debated with rationality and respect which I’ve tried to do in my essay “The Trouble With Religion”>.
