You heard right. Michael Shermer!
Shermer has been charged with the heresy of Faitheism and Accommodationism. Let him be anathema. Coyne speaketh: Let Us remind Shermer, the apostate, "the only kind of religion not at war with science is deism."
So let it be written. So let it be done.
Just to remind you, here is a blurb of Shermer's Wikipedia bio:
Michael Brant Shermer (born September 8, 1954 in Glendale, California) is an American science writer, historian of science, founder of The Skeptics Society, and Editor in Chief of its magazine Skeptic, which is largely devoted to investigating and debunking pseudoscientific and supernatural claims. The Skeptics Society currently has over 55,000 members.
Shermer is also the producer and co-host of the 13-hour Fox Family television series Exploring the Unknown. Since April 2004, he has been a monthly columnist for Scientific American magazine with his Skeptic column. Shermer claims to have once been a fundamentalist Christian, but converted from a belief in God during his graduate studies, and has described himself as an agnostic, nontheist, atheist and advocate for humanist philosophy. He has expressed reservations about such labels, however, as he sees them in being used in service of pigeonholing, and prefers to simply be called a skeptic.

Michael Freakin' Shermer's heart is not pure enough for Jerry Coyne.
If Jerry Falwell's circle of orthodoxy was, say, 1 meter in radius, then His Worshipfulness The Right Reverend Jerry Coyne's circle of orthodoxy has a radius of, roughly, a Planck Length.
What a hideous, hateful loser Jerry Coyne is.
