Here’s another challenge for the growing atheist movement: can we avoid the trap of charismatic leadership and the cult of personality? As church attendance declines (a good thing), as pastors wake up and realize their faith was a lie (a very good thing), and as we try to embrace even church leaders who want to join the secular movement, we have to beware of the temptation to just put them to work doing the same old thing they’re familiar with, in atheist “churches”...
What we need to construct are egalitarian institutions that do not simply co-opt the corrupt schema of existing religious institutions. We should be modeling democratic political forms rather than buying into destructive ecclesiastical patterns of organization.
Myers is the undisputed leader of one of the largest and most malevolent atheist cults, if you don't count the various People's Democratic Republics that have inspired humanity for a century. Myers directs his Pharynguloids to crash on-line polls, swarm Darwinian skeptics, and generally spur atheist fundamentalism on a regular basis. Like any cult leader worth his salt, he has even accused a rival atheist cult leader of anonymous/undocumented sex crimes.
As for Dear Leader's exhortation to "[model] democratic political reforms rather than buying into destructive ecclesiastical patterns of organization.", it's worth pointing out that limited government ("render unto Caesar") and the inviolable worth of each human being and the primacy of conscience are Christian "ecclesiastical patterns of organization" that date back 2000 years.
Atheist "democratic political forms" would be a welcome novelty. Every atheist government in human history has been totalitarian hellhole, ruled largely by atheist cult leaders.
