[FoRK] The drum beat continues, making exactly the wrong moves

"Openly gay" is passé of course.
Now we're on to "openly Atheist": Leading intelligent, always right, and 
likable characters are often now "openly Atheist": Dr. Brennan on Bones, 
House on House, Gil Grissom on CSI, etc.

Time this week has a cover of: "God Vs. Science" which is a dueling 
interview of Richard Dawkins and Francis Collins.

So, what is the calculated response to all of this?

Washington Post 20061115: "3 Christian Groups Move To Condemn Gay Sex"
"Faced with rising public acceptance of same-sex relationships, three 
U.S. Christian denominations are taking strong measures this week to 
condemn homosexual acts as sinful."  (Roman Catholic, Baptist, Presbyterian)

"The largest Baptist group in North Carolina, meanwhile, moved to expel 
any congregation that condones homosexuality, adopting a policy that 
allows the Baptist State Convention to investigate complaints that 
member churches are too "gay-friendly."

Hard to believe.
