What is CNN up to?

After the firestorm of protest over their first atheist episode, the Paula Zahn show (Paula Zahn Now) gave it a second shot tonight. They scoured the entire country of 300 million for three panelists who could have an intelligent discussion about atheism.

It was a disaster of only slightly less magnitude than the first one. This time the role of ignorant bigot was played by a black pastor. If that's the best they can do then America is in a whole lot of trouble.

The Richard Dawkins interview was okay. I admire how he can keep his cool when being interviewed by people who don't have a clue (Paula Zahn).

The black pastor wanted to talk about morality, and said he got his from the Bible. I'd have gone straight for the slavery issue.
