I often write about frothing fundamentalist fruitcakes on this blog – those who screech about the First Amendment even as they seek to use government force to impose their beliefs on everyone else, and those who picket funerals of children and fallen troops to get publicity for their asstarded “Got hates fags” message.
I also often blog about butthurt, shitslurping atheists, who become faint at the mere sight of a cross, and who spend their apparently copious amounts of free time, suing everyone and everything in order to force the removal of any trace of religious symbols from their sight, because apparently it makes their genitals ache to hear someone say a prayer in public.
This blog post is about the latter. (h/t Jonn at This Ain’t Hell).
Apparently, an overly sensitive atheist became horribly agitated and shocked… SHOCKED, I tell you… at the sight of a Bladensburg Cross memorializing fallen Soldiers on what is apparently public land!
Oh, noes! I has an ache in my anus from seeing cross! It hurts! It feels like I’ve been sodomized with a cheese grater – all because I was exposed to… A CROSS!
Steven Lowe, a plaintiff from Washington, said was “shocked” when he first saw the cross and is “upset” whenever he passes it, according to the complaint obtained by the newspaper.
“He believes that the Bladensburg Cross associates a Christian religious symbol with the state and gives the impression that the state supports and approves of Christianity, as opposed to other religions, and that the state may even prefer Christians and Christianity over other religions,” the complaint reads.
Sorry, dude. It gives no such impression. As an atheist, I’m really embarrassed to be associated in any way, shape or form with this band of douchebags, for whom the mere sight of a symbol that could be associated with Christianity creates such pain and suffering, that they have to waste taxpayer resources in a lawsuit to remove the thing that so offends their tender sensibilities!
Seriously? Shut the fuck up!
It’s a historic memorial to remember fallen Soldiers. Not a single person with any common sense would somehow mistake this for any kind of “preference” for one faith over another.
But then again, butthurt atheists don’t have a shred of common sense. Whether it’s the campaign to remove “In God We Trust” from American money, or the incredible, painfully burning stupid of their efforts to pressure Tim Tebow to stop praying during football games, these blubbering dildoes have taken up a crusade… pardon my religious reference… to eradicate any trace of anything religious from the public eye.
My view is the following…
You want to pray? Pray. I don’t give a shit where you pray, as long as you’re not staging your revival on my lawn, or passing legislation mandating that I pray.
You want to put up a work of art that contains a religious theme, teach classes about various religions in public schools? Go for it. It’s art. It’s history. Whether the perpetually enraged atheists like to admit it or not, religion is an indelible part of history and art, and acknowledging it or teaching about it does not equate to a violation of the First Amendment.
This cannot be equated in any way with an “establishment of religion.” Establishing or preferring one religion over another is not equal to learning about it or even seeing a damn cross as a memorial and a historic reminder of the sacrifices made by our military!
Ferpetessake, humanists! Get a life!
