The Null Device

An afternoon in Hyde Park

Seen at Speaker's Corner in Hyde Park this afternoon:
Christian Atheism

He didn't speak, though did spend some time staking out a corner with his eclectic collection of signs and printed materials. For some reason, nobody seems to have gone up to him and asked about the finer points of Christian Atheism.

One of his signs:

A bit further on, a chap in a baseball hat was either waving or threatening to burn an American flag; a crowd had gathered around him and were remonstrating vigorously with him. Not far from there, Cory Doctorow and his posse of copyright-policy troublemakers had set up and addressed the crowd on the evils of the broadcast flag and WIPO treaties.

Ah well that Doctorow and his posse of INTELLIGENCE MONGERERS. Needless to say, I'm intrigued about the proposal for an atheist christian congregation. I smell a hoax...?

Does the sign in the last photo say "London Copyfighters - (D)runken Brunch and Talking Shop"? What's that supposed to mean?

It does. It's an informal gathering of people interested in issues of copyright, open access to information and such.

Cory scares me.

I thought that sign said CHRISTIANITY CREATED CAPITALISM, IT MUST NOT DESTROY IT, which would have been more interesting.
