So recently Obama met with The Secular Coalition for America and some right wing groups went nuts.
“It is one thing for Administration to meet with groups of varying viewpoints, but it is quite another for a senior official to sit down with activists representing some of the most hate-filled, anti-religious groups in the nation,” said Council Nedd, chairman of the religious advocacy group In God We Trust.
Seriously? Atheist groups are hate groups? We stand up for freedom of religion for all, and we’re hate groups? We stand up for separation of church and state and we’re hate groups?
Last time I checked, Atheists weren’t the ones protesting human rights. Atheists aren’t the ones killing gays and shouting “I hate fags!”. Atheists aren’t the ones who stone people or blow up health clinics. Atheists aren’t the ones who blow up restaurants and buses. Atheists are not the ones with a book, telling other people they are going to burn in HELL forever!
But yeah, other than that we’re totally hate groups. The idea that we fight for the equality of all human beings and stand up for reason and intelligent inquiry is just some conspiracy…
