Thou Shall Not Steal: Christians Break Commandment.
Many people saw the humor of the Freedom From Religion Foundation's (FFRF) sign placed next to a nativity scene at the Washington State Capitol in Olympia. Presumably, one Christian was not amused and then ironically broke the lords 8th commandment - Thou Shall Not Steal - by taking it to a conservative Seattle radio show hosts office. Is there anything sacred for American Christians any more?
The AP called the sign "anti-christian" in an article picked up by Fox News, which implies that the editors in Rupertland have a poor grasp of the English language (atheists cannot be against Christianity precisely because they don't believe in Christianity.) Moreover, Dan Barker of the FFRF only wanted "equal time, not to muscle, not to coerce, but just to have a place at the table." That kind of language doesn't sound very "anti-christian" at all. But should I really be surprised at inflammatory language coming from Fox?
One thing becomes more clear each day; we are living in an upside down world where non-believers follow God's law more closely than Christians. In the end I appreciate those home schooled, backward-assed, simple minded pricks showing their true nature - that they are intellectually lazy, hate filled douche bags.
Oh, and the best line on the FFRF's sign: "Reasons Greetings."
