"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality." --Bishop Desmond Tutu

2 Minute Hate: Elizabeth Dole edition!

She punches through the bottom of the barrel and begins her descent into hell.... This hateful ad accuses Kay Hagen, her Democratic opponent of taking "godless money." Not exactly sure what that means. Does that mean that atheists are not entitled to contribute to political campaigns? What bigotry. What hate. Atheists have rights as much as theists. Just not in Dole's vision of America.

It's easy to take potshots at atheists. We're an easy target for the religious majority in this country.

At least we atheists can look back to the founding fathers for support of our lack of faith.
Because religious belief, or non-belief, is such an important part of every person's life, freedom of religion affects every individual. Religious institutions that use government power in support of themselves and force their views on persons of other faiths, or of no faith, undermine all our civil rights. Moreover, state support of an established religion tends to make the clergy unresponsive to their own people, and leads to corruption within religion itself. Erecting the "wall of separation between church and state," therefore, is absolutely essential in a free society. --Thomas Jefferson

Freedom of religion means freedom from religion!
