Bizarre letter to the editor in the Toronto Star recently; makes you wonder if they have any standards at all for accepting such letters...

The author takes on someone for DARING to suggest that an atheist head up Canada's religious freedom agency, although it's a given that only religious people are fit to lead an office devoted to secularism.

But the really weird part is the double contradiction in the final two paragraphs.  The author cites a definition of religion that includes worship in something supernatural, then accuses atheists of worshiping their own intellect, which ISN'T supernatural.

She closes by wanting someone who DOES believe in something supernatural (confirming that atheists don't) in the office in question.

I'm even more amazed that a newspaper would print a letter with such glaring stupidity than I am that someone is that stupid to begin with...
