Vote Now for the New Humanist Bad Faith Awards 2009

Extract from the New Humanist Magazine

Who should win the 2009 Bad Faith Award?

The time has come. For months now, nominations have been pouring in for those most deserving of our prestigious Bad Faith Award, presented each year to the person deemed to have made the most outstanding contribution to the cause of un-reason.

Last year saw a runaway victory for erstwhile US vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin (oh those halcyon days, when she was a mere election and a heart attack away from the nuclear codes). Of course, Palin was always a front runner in that contest (Bad Faith, that is), but this year’s poll may well be more closely contested. Drawn from nominations we’ve received online, by email and by post, as well some of our own based on another year of tackling the forces of irrationalism in the pages of New Humanist, here’s the shortlist, in alphabetical order, of the 10 enemies of reason ready to battle it out for the ultimate prize:

Adnan Oktar, aka Harun Yahya

Anjem Choudary

Anthony Bush

The British Chiropractic Association

Cormac Murphy O’Connor

Dermot Aherne

Damian Thompson

Pope Benedict XVI

Terry Eagleton and Karen Armstrong

Tony Blair

So, there you have it – it’s a strong shortlist, and there’s sure to be some fierce competition between now and the New Year, when we will announce the person (or organization) who has been crowned 2009’s most scurrilous enemy of reason.
