F the JREF

      As anyone who has been reading this blog regularly knows, last year, the JREF was asking for submissions for guest posts and I submitted one which was rejected. I posted it on this blog (Comfortable Accommodations - 2/26/11). I didn't totally buy the reasoning behind the rejection and the more I looked at it, the more I thought  I was sure of what the real reason was and I blogged about it (Burning Bridges - 4/20/11). This past Thursday, I saw something that seemed to me to be more evidence that the reason I was given for my post being rejected was BS. On that day (1/26), the JREF put up a post entitled "Loving A Conspiracy Theorist". It was about the author's relationship with his girlfriend who is a conspiracy theorist and his willingness to live with that and his overall attitude that it's ok for non-believers to have relationships with believers. Sound familiar?
       I'm not going to go over my whole argument again about why I think my post was rejected. You can read the "Burning Bridges" post if you're interested in that. All I'll say now is that I find the fact that this post (written by one of their research fellows) was put up while mine was rejected to be further proof that I'm right. Accommodation is ok with the JREF.......but only towards certain people. Screw them.
