A Fox News page on Facebook was recently littered with violent rhetoric. The page was on the controversy surrounding a Christian monument at the site of the 9/11 memorial and the American Atheist organization’s lawsuit in response to it. This is a screen shot of just some of the comments posted by the followers of gentle Jesus, meek and mild:
The obvious irony here is that these people represent the sort of Jihadist religious ideals that brought the World Trade Center to a pile of rubble in the first place. It is this type of thinking that divides, fractures, and reduces a nation to it’s lowest common denominator, well represented by the above members of American society. The self-evident truth is that not all minds are created equal. Some of them represent the very base of the gene pool, the most highly un-evolved thinkers that mankind has to offer. The above are just that.
While it may be tempting to fully sink to their level, there are more devastating ways to rebut the mania represented by the lowest base of the Christian morality. While I certainly wouldn’t instruct you to love neighbors such as these, and I certainly wouldn’t offer the Heimlich maneuver to any of the above that happen to choke on their communion wafer, we can take great satisfaction in the fact that the threats of these people are hollow, inert, and pointless. Why? Because America is most certainly not a Christian nation, but most certainly a secular one. It is a secular nation with laws that simply will not tolerate the type of violence that these people advocate. They have done the rest of us a favor, by willingly pushing Christian mania toward the fringe of society. They are doing our work themselves.
Thank you, violent Christian bigots, for exposing your true feelings. You’ve exposed just how ridiculous your belief system is.
