Umm...change the channel
|American Atheists are up in arms over a campaign ad by (Democrat) congressional candidate Harold Ford, Jr.|
“To our knowledge, this is the first time a partisan political ad has been produced using the backdrop of a church,” said Ellen Johnson, president of American Atheists. “It’s part of a larger and disturbing trend where candidates are invoking religion in order to woo constituencies and win elections.”(emphasis mine)
Oh my God. It's a DISTURBING trend when people invoke religion to state their beliefs (of course, if you've heard of Harold Ford, Jr and his family ties, you know that it's all a bunch of hogwash...but that's neither here nor there) !!! What WILL we do? Oh my heavens! The next thing you know, the President will be taking the oath of office on a Bible for God's sake!!
Ms. Johnson added that by “playing the religion card,” candidates like Mr. Ford were marginalizing and excluding millions of Atheists, Freethinkers, Secular Humanists and other nonbelievers.
Um. Yeah. Get over it. Change the frickin' channel and vote for the Republican if you're THAT "disturbed".
