TPM Election Central | Talking Points Memo | Dozens Of Call Center Workers Walk Off Job In Protest Rather Than Read McCain Script Attacking Obama

TPM Election Central | Talking Points Memo | Dozens Of Call Center Workers Walk Off Job In Protest Rather Than Read McCain Script Attacking Obama:

"'We were asked to read something saying [Obama and Democrats] were against protecting children from danger,' this worker said. 'I wouldn't do it. A lot of people left. They thought it was disgusting.'

This worker, too, confirmed sacrificing pay to walk out, saying her supervisor told her: 'If you don't wanna phone it you can just go home for the day.'

The script coincided with this robo-slime call running in other states, but because robocalling is illegal in Indiana it was being read by call center workers."

Arriving soon: atheist bus campaign gets off to a flying start |

: "Churches have responded favourably. The British Methodist church welcomed Dawkins's 'continued interest' in God, encouraging people to think about the issue. The Church of England said it would defend the right of any group representing a religious or philosophical position to promote that view through appropriate channels.

A spokesman added: 'Christian belief is not about worrying or not enjoying life. Quite the opposite: our faith liberates us to put this life into a proper perspective."

: "The atheist bus campaign launches today thanks to Comment is free readers. Because of your enthusiastic response to the idea of a reassuring God-free advert being used to counter religious advertising, the slogan 'There's probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life' could now become an ad campaign on London buses – and leading secularists have jumped on board to help us raise the money."

Stand proud fellow Humanists!
or something like that.

It has been a good year for atheists.
Religulous, Dawkins, Hitchens, and now this...
at least we are getting our message out.
