More Christian Terrorist Attacks

Few have been paying attention to that other ongoing terrorist threat

On September 11, 2006, the fifth anniversary of the terror attacks that devastated our nation, [Christian fundamentalist David McMenemy] crashed his car into a building in Davenport, Iowa, hoping to blow it up and kill himself in the fire.

Since 1977, casualties from this war include seven murders, 17 attempted murders, three kidnappings, 152 assaults, 305 completed or attempted bombings and arsons, 375 invasions, 482 stalking incidents, 380 death threats, 618 bomb threats, 100 acid attacks, and 1,254 acts of vandalism

You know, people often ask me how I can be a "devout" Atheist. Here's the thing, besides suppressing medical treatment and scientific research, nearly all religions are an incredibly violent force. You would think that after the years of Christian terrorist attacks, or at the very least the September 11th Islamic terrorist attacks people would get it -- but at last they don't.

Those people who are "moderate" (or at least moderate enough to ignore passages of the Bible or Qur'ān that tell you to kill those who don't accept your God) are giving validity to those who are crazy enough to believe the things in that book you proudly carry around.

Congressman-Elect Announces He Will Only Take Oath On Qur'ān, Chaos Ensues... (Updated)

Keith Ellison, D-Minn., the first Muslim elected to the United States Congress, has announced that he will not take his oath of office on the Bible, but on the bible of Islam, the Koran.

He should not be allowed to do so -- not because of any American hostility to the Koran, but because the act undermines American civilization.

First, it is an act of hubris that perfectly exemplifies multiculturalist activism -- my culture trumps America's culture. What Ellison and his Muslim and leftist supporters are saying is that it is of no consequence what America holds as its holiest book; all that matters is what any individual holds to be his holiest book

Okay, this just begs the question: Are you absolutely fucking kidding me? Well today is a bittersweet day. Because this can only mean that the problems of poverty, world hunger, and aids have been solved. That can be the only rational explanation when we are paying people over $400/day each to argue that all of America as we know it is going to collapse if some guy slaps his hand atop a Qur'ān when he is sworn into office.

Well, in a way, it's quite amusing. Think of it this way, for all the fighting to allow religion into the public sector -- it has finally come to bite those people in the ass. THIS IS WHY the "liberals" and other "evil", god-less groups of individuals have been fighting against religion being allowed into the public sector to begin with! If they could get their heads out their asses they would realize it's not an attack on "Christian values" it's to try to avoid situations exactly like this from ever happening in the first place!

It's astonishing to me what a one-way street all of their talk of getting rid of "PC" is. They're such hard-asses when it comes to not worrying about who gets offended, until they are the ones getting the short end of the stick. Yeah, right buddy, political correctness is destroying America until you walk into Walmart one day and get told "Merry Ramadan!"

Or god forbid some guy wants to put his hand on a "holy" book you happen to not subscribe to. If they could step back from their huge egos for two seconds and realize the the battle to separate church and state is not an attack on Christianity they wouldn't find themselves in these kinds of situations in the first place!

Update: My apologies folks, as a reader pointed out to me, it looks as though this entire issue was fabricated in an attempt to stir up trouble for Islamic Congressmen Keith Ellison. More details here.
