I have this funny picture of Bob starting to appear for his diavlogs wearing priestly raiments.
I think we ought to ease up a little on the generalized nature of these critiques of Bob. While no one is more shrill than I about giving creationists, corsis, and althouses unmerited time and space, we have to accept that if Bob is going to be true to the site's mission of always airing a variety of viewpoints, he is also always going to be pushing at the edges of what some of us consider acceptable.

I think a full-throated criticism of specific guests and specific topics is appropriate -- nay, required. But let's not go overboard on seeing trends, and let's not confuse too much the view Bob is presenting with his latest book with the lineup of diavloggers over time.


[Added] I should emphasize that when I say "what some of us consider acceptable," I assume the "some" is a changing group, depending on the diavlogger or topic.

I would also like to emphasize that my call for "full-throated criticism" when "some" are not happy with a topic or guest is not only directed at the lefty/atheist crowd here, although I do hope to see something better than the usual "I'm tired of Bh.tv having nothing but liberals" whine.
