Forehead smack. They were serious..?!????

From a Yahoo news editoral

(warning – do NOT drink liquids while reading this)

“America would be better off if only atheists were allowed to hold public office.”

So, let me guess.  Communism (which has the same rules for party members and officials), isn’t a failing model….it just wasn’t practiced correctly?

Because the whole “only atheists can hold public office” is so Stalin era, and he was a humanitarian, right?

Atheist leadership would be focused entirely on the actual civic problems facing the country. It may be the only world view that places real world problems first and America needs that.

Yeah, roger that. Because humans and their worldview about actions today & consequences tomorrow have NOTHING to do with “real world problems” (SARCASM ALERT!)

I much prefer GK Chesterton’s brutal honesty to this writers self-delusion

“Dear Sir: Regarding your article ‘What’s Wrong with the World?’ I am. Yours truly,”
― G.K. Chesterton

    I suspect the writer is doing an elaborate form of trolling.

    He makes an assertion in the middle of the article: “Christian dogma is equally violent [as Islam].”

    I am a lifelong non-theist but respecter of people and their faith — and a fierce opponent of idiocy such as this fellow’s. And I wrote about exactly that misguided attempt at equivalence years ago:
    “Religion as an excuse to do horrible things.”

    And this fellow’s odd (and anti-Constitutional) diatribe is part of an attack on Christianity. As one (Canadian) politician said in court testimony quoted there, “Freedom of speech is an American concept, so I don’t give it any value.” No, eliminating Christianity (but not jihadism, oddly) is more important to many people.
