Atheist warns against Catholic-bashing

Many thanks to a correspondent who sent me the link to an article in which Brendan O'Neill, atheist editor of Spiked, steps aside from the mainstream commentary to say:
The reaction to the paedophile priest scandal is as guilty of scaremongering, illiberalism and elitism as the Catholic Church has ever been.
I don't agree with everything in the article but he makes some good points about the effects of the "new atheism". See: Why humanists shouldn’t join in this Catholic-bashing
