Maybe we should organize the Christian Asshats awards. This could be the first nominee, a panel of judges would be selected, and this prestigious award would be given to the most deserving.
I'm inclined to agree. But need some help. Please take a moment to read the section below and then add your suggestions/ideas to the comment thread.
Here are my suggestions:
The Christian Asshat Awards are designed to highlight the worst of the worst when it comes to anti-Atheist rhetoric. Read this post for an example. We should focus on Christians who choose to attack Atheists directly or indirectly through their use of the spoken or written word.
Nominees can include blog posts, youtube videos, editorials, podcasts, or even sermons. I am even inclined to admit photographs.
Nominations are open each month. Blogroll members can nominate candidates by making a nomination post on their blogs, or by sending me an email. Posts should be marked with the Technorati tag "Asshat". I'll make a post each month which collects all of the candidates together so that our panel of experts can vote on the winner.
Bloggers who nominate sites should make a post which describes why the candidate should be considered for the award. I will link to your posts in any post I make on Deep Thoughts.
Since we will have a monthly contest, it follows that we will have an Asshat of the Year award too. The winners from each month become nominees for the yearly award.
Judging can be as simple as blogroll members voting in the comment thread of the monthly nominee post. Or as complex as a link to a Surveymonkey survey (I have an account).
Things I need to get this rolling:
- A graphic would be nice.
- More ideas
