I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately (be afraid, be very afraid) about the power of a single voice when it comes to religion, military memorials or many things patriotic.
In a nation where our President is elected by the majority of Americans – whether they are alive, dead, legal, illegal or imaginary – how is it that one person whose granny panties are constantly in a wad has the power to eliminate any mention of Jesus, have a Veteran’s memorial dismantled in their town or force a business owner to remove the American Flag from the front of their store?
It seems to me that if you are an Atheist, a painting of a guy you don’t believe in shouldn’t bother you a bit. Neither should mentioning a God you feel doesn’t even exist. If you don’t like the American Flag, move to another country. Mexico’s flag is kind of pretty. If you don’t like the way a memorial to our fallen heroes looks suck it up, Buttercup. They put their lives on the line so you could be a persnickety dork.
For those who are unfamiliar with my blog, and in an effort to help you out prior to your posting untruths in the comment section, I am a Wiccan and a Libertarian. Read “About me?” before you commence with the bitching. It is always important to do your research before you make a fool of yourself.
Anyway, I do not like Barack Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, cucumbers or watermelon. As a matter of fact, I don’t really think there is such a thing as a true Atheist. I do not like Priuses (neither would you if you had to follow one up a canyon for 20 miles) and people who chew with their mouths open are the Devil’s spawn.
Think the ACLU will help me do something about all that?
