It is interesting how atheist letting the public know that we exist is shoving our "agenda" down the throats of the nation, but when Christians tell us to shut up and let the majority rule over us, well that is just democracy. There are two problems with that. 1) The Bill of Rights. The Bill of Rights were put in place to protect the minority from the persecution of the majority. 2) History. We have been accused of rewriting history, but when you look into issues like "under god" in the Pledge and "in god we trust" on our money, you will see who is rewriting history. The idea that this is a Christian nation is as ridiculous as this being Muslim of Jewish nation. This is a Christian nation is as much as there are Christians that live here.
The problem is is that the people who think this is a Christian nation are politically active. They vote in insane assholes like Mike Huckabee, who recently insinuated that atheist should be happy that they aren't being shot for being atheists.
If people want to spend their money to tell everyone they don't believe in God, the joy, beauty, and incredible greatness of America is we let them do it and don't shoot them for it.
Is he not merciful? This guy is also not a fan of the gay.
I do believe that God created male and female and intended for marriage to be the relationship of the two opposite sexes,” Huckabee said in a recent New Yorker profile. “Male and female are biologically compatible to have a relationship. We can get into the ick factor, but the fact is two men in a relationship, two women in a relationship, biologically, that doesn’t work the same.
The ick factor? Well, I am glad he isn't infusing his opinion into the matter. He really isn't. I'll let him tell you.
I’m an Evangelical Christian, so I have a strong biblical world view, and that’s where I come. It’s not a matter of me having any kind of animosity towards anybody or any group and what people do individually, is to me, their business,” he said. “I’m not going to judge you or judge anybody else because I know there are so many loving people who are in same-sex relationships and they have adopted children and they love those kids. I’m not going to judge them. I’m simply not going there.
You're not going to judge? Yes you are. YOU JUST DID!
People like Mike Huckabee are the problem. They are dividing the nation between those who are hate-filled, bigoted, ignorant homophobes and the rest of us. Listen to people like Mike Huckabee and tell me who is destroying the nation. Tell me who is offensive and vile. Tell me who is rewriting history.
