If the Republican Party hopes to reach out to minority groups, it must clearly and forcefully repudiate such bigoted comments by its representatives," the group's National Legislative Director Corey Saylor said in a statement.

I'm just not seeing this happen.

I bet she is adequately representing her ass-backwards redneck constituents. She'll probably win her next election in a land slide.

"No, I do not condone terrorism," Presnell responded, according to the report. "We just need to start taking a stand on our religious freedom or it will be whisked away from us."

The only "religious freedom" you want is the freedom to get rid of every other religion except yours, you coont.

It won't, mainly because bigotry is one of the GOP's core values.

On the plus side I would love to see the battle between different sects of Christianity to be the official state religion.

I like your caption though, works perfectly. She's like one of those women you see in horror movies where from far away she looks like a sweet lady, but the closer you get the more hellish she looks. Until a demon erupts from her mouth and eats your face.

Since we don't want to pray to terror gods, could an atheist lead a group chant thanking the building inspector for providing a well functioning place of meeting?

FTA: "The North Carolina measure responds to the ACLU suit by declaring that each state is "sovereign" and no federal court can prevent a state from "from making laws respecting an establishment of religion." "

Ummmm, isn't accepting the US Constitution a condition of becoming one of the United States?

Well said. Sad that she doesn't even see the irony in saying we need to protect religious freedom in the same breath she is condemning a religion.  How is it that our Founding Fathers were so on-the-ball about this stuff but we've regressed into stupid Christian bullshiat?

Snarcoleptic_Hoosier: Since we don't want to pray to terror gods, could an atheist lead a group chant thanking the building inspector for providing a well functioning place of meeting?


I guess in order to allow that, atheist would have to admit that atheism is a religion.  I don't think any atheist will admit that.

Well, she's right. Muslim prayers have no business being part of official government functions.

Nor do any other religion's prayers.

Atheism is a belief system, not a religion.

When presented with a binary option (Is there at least one higher power that can be considered god-like?), the atheists look at existing observations and believe that there is no further explanation. Theists look at the same observations and believe that a higher authority is responsible for the complexity of life. Both are equally supported by philosophy. Atheists simply believe that the null hypothesis (ie no evidence suggesting a god has interacted with creation) is the standard. It's not a religion.

There. Now that's settled. We can stay on the topic of making fun of North Carolina.

More pedantically, a class of belief systems, including Randite Capitalism and Marxist Communism... neither of which is the Techno-Scientific Progressive Secular Humanist et cetera cluster that's currently prevalent in the West.

The argument that I think Republicans would use
It is Freedom of Religion not Freedom of  a belief system, so if you want to be treated like a religion you need to be  willing to admit that atheism is a religion.


/shouldn't it be Best Carolina

Republicans also use the argument that unfettered capitalism is good for those at the mercy of the owning class because the most observable metric of a bull market is the wealthy getting wealthier.

perhaps I should have said in order to be treated the same as a religion atheist would need to claim that atheism is/is like a religion.

Just today I was thinking

If you told the average American that a political candidate's religion was
A middle Eastern religion that believe that all people were evil and that they long. for the day that their deity destroyed the world and the people in it except for their fellow believers, that young children who died would spend eternity being tortured unless they had undergone a magical ritual.

Would the average American vote for that candidate?

In fairness, we might want to teach a bit more than just Christianity. We all aren't Christians out here. And as a Buddhist, I don't want my faith emblazoned on pubic walls, but then again, my daughter isn't Christian, and I don't exactly want her being exposed to ONLY Christian ideas and ideals...
