Generally I don't bother posting about fundie crazies bashing on atheists because, well, it's just a little too easy. Fish in a barrel, you know?

But this "god-fearing congressperson vs. atheist congressperson" exchange was just too amusing to pass up!

Davis: I’m trying to understand the philosophy that you want to spread in the state of Illinois. This is the Land of Lincoln. This is the Land of Lincoln where people believe in God, where people believe in protecting their children. What you have to spew and spread is extremely dangerous, it’s dangerous–

Sherman: What’s dangerous, ma’am?

Davis: It’s dangerous to the progression of this state. And it’s dangerous for our children to even know that your philosophy exists! Now you will go to court to fight kids to have the opportunity to be quiet for a minute. But damn if you’ll go to [court] to fight for them to keep guns out of their hands. I am fed up! Get out of that seat!

Sherman: Thank you for sharing your perspective with me, and I’m sure that if this matter does go to court-

Davis: You have no right to be here! We believe in something. You believe in destroying! You believe in destroying what this state was built upon.


Atheism is corrupting children (exxxcelent!) and DESTROYING THE STATE (even more exxxcelent)!!!

I thought that in order to destroy the state I'd have, you know... recruit a militia, buy a ton of guns, invade DC, kill a buncha people? And here all I gotta do is just not believe in god?

How come nobody told me that being a radical libertarian government-smashing revolutionary was so darn easy?? ;]

"There is nothing to fear, but fear itself" right?

It's the believers of fear that I fear.
And they will destroy themselves, while I'm on the outside getting on with my life. ;-)

You didn't know that smashing success of primitive democratic institutions in your country is based on sheepish uniformity of thoughts and opinions in overwhelming majority of population that only religion or religion-like belief can bring?

If that wasn't the case, you would have at least a usable voting system... or a Congress that occasionally passes things that are good for the population yet bad for big businesses... Or education system that actually educates instead of herding kids and adolescents in a sad parody of a society...
