Michael Shermer: The founding publisher of Skeptic magazine, which once published a favorable review of Milo Yiannopoulos' book "Dangerous" and a defense of child-rapist Jerry Sandusky, Shermer made a name for himself as a "skeptic."

That's not the kind of sentence that makes me trust in the unbiased integrity of the writing as it's so obviously motivated polemic.

Well, there we have it. The author collected the names of notables or near-notables in a particular category, found one or two cardinal sins to point to -- sometimes only by innuendo -- the way only the blue-haired church women know how. Of course, the sins are for the most part in a somewhat different vein, such as failing to tar and feather some obvious third party villain. Mostly what the cited crew have in common to make them targets of a screed like this one is that they're white, male, and accomplished non-ring-kissers. What the woke brigade need most these days is their own papacy.
