The Gervais sign-off.

"Thank you to God for making me an atheist."
-- Ricky Gervais, closing the 2011 Golden Globes
Mixed reviews for Gervais tonight, as expected. In atheist circles, I think there'll be some mixed feelings as well about his sign-off. Look, anything that helps nudge atheism into the mainstream is aces in my book, but I expect the backlash for the comment will have some weight due to the backlash against some of his other barbed remarks. (Call it the "See-Atheists-Are-Mean-Spirited-Pricks Effect.")
