23So, who "suffer(s) from psychosis in much the same way that a serial killer does"? Why, it's certainly not those for whom "(t)he presence of God is surprisingly easy to ‘sense’ and thus prove." The writer seems to have confused "psychosis" -- a psychological episode wherein a person suffers a break with reality -- with "psychopathy." He should also check up on the meaning of "cognitive dissonance" while he's at it.

17Self-proclaimed atheist who rejects the concept of a "CEO god" writes a book called The Science Delusion that insinuates that The God Delusion was seriously flawed and that Christopher Hitchens was a liar who lacked decency. When other atheists accuse him of the same thing, he claims that he was trying to write a satire in the style of Jonathan Swift. (How odd. This sounds like something S. E. Cupp might do.)

27A Beer company named after the one of the instigators of the Boston Tea Party makes a patriotic-themed commercial that mentions life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, "we bow to no kings," etc. But because it doesn't mention god, the second-stringers at Fox and Friends decide to use their three hours in the sun to try to out-stupid the A team.
