An Unbrainwashed Primer On Hate Groups
See Bill Donohue.
He is president of the Catholic League.
He likes to condemn things.
He condemns movies and television shows that might cause his followers to think.
He condemns advertising that relays messages that he doesn't agree with.
He condemns the use of condoms.
Condemn, condemn, condemn.
Recently, he condemned the meeting of officials from the Justice and Health and Human Services departments with representatives of the Secular Coalition for America, an umbrella group that includes American Atheists and the Council for Secular Humanism.
He denounced them as a 'hate group'.
A definition of 'condemn' is " to pronounce judgment against, to sentence". In other words, to hate.
Oddly enough, Mr. Donohue has never condemned pedophiliac priests. Because his bible says, 'judge not, lest ye be judged'.
See Fred Phelps.
He is the pastor at the Westboro Baptist Church.
He has a direct connection to his god.
His god tells him to hate things.
He protests funerals of gay people.
He protests funerals of soldiers fallen in the war in Iraq.
Reverend Phelps claims that his god is the Christian god of love.
Someday, Fred will die.
No one will protest his funeral.
See Council Nedd.
He is the leader of In God We Trust, an organization dedicated to protecting America's religious heritage.
Like the Salem witch trials, the Boston Martyrs, and the KKK.
Council Nedd describes the Secular Coalition for America as "some of the most hate-filled, anti-religious groups in the nation".
He must not think that the biggest number of hate groups in the nation derive from the Christian Right.
Poor Old Nedd.
This is Marion "Pat"Robertson.
A Christian leader, "Pat" is one of the most hate filled leaders in Christianity.
He denounces other religions as "demonic".
He openly calls for murder of other country's leaders.
He claims a hate crime bill is "noose around the neck of Christians".
He has claimed that Hurricane Katrina was a punishment by god for America's alleged sins.
He has stated that gay marriage will lead to bestiality.
He blames the earthquake in Haiti on a pact with the devil.
He has slammed Muslims as worse than Nazis.
In short, he is one of the most hate filled men in charge of one of the most hated filled religions and has met directly with presidents, then lied about what was said at such meetings.
Atheists have never called to bomb a sovereign nation as our elected Christians have done.
Atheists would never condemn a minority for not having the same belief system as they.
Atheists have never justified killing in the name of some unseen deity.
No, atheists have never advocated killing anyone for any reason.
Maybe that is why their voice has been kept out of the White House for 234 years. And look where that got us.
