The Friendly Atheist blogger Hemant Mehta has cancelled his Kickstarter project for a children’s book called God is an Abusive Boyfriend (and you should break up), after facing criticism.
“After receiving a lot of negative feedback over the past 24 hours, I’ve decided to put a stop to the project,” he explained in a blog post. ”Even if I believe the concept behind the book is a valid one, the execution was poor and it upset a lot of good people. My apologies to anyone in that crowd.”
In four days, the project had already raised $2,288 from 62 backers of its $10,000 goal.
