At Least We Can Stay "In" the Country

Here's a little something that will make your hang your head in disgust. From a reader in Soldotna, Alaska, this letter was published in the Peninsula Clarion (click on the picture to see it clearer):

I shouldn't even waste my time to address any of this, but I can't help myself. First, if you must do something, then that is not freedom. In fact it's compulsion, which is the opposite of freedom.

Second, "In God We Trust" was not added to our money until the Civil War. Even then, it appeared sporatically until the national motto was changed from "E Pluribus Unim" to "In God We Trust" in the 1950's to show those dirty communists that America has morals (sigh).

Third, how does having prayer in school actually solve any problems? Please, I would like to hear a good, rational explanation for that one.

Fourth, I don't know what evil it is we practice since we don't actually practice anything. That's part of being an atheist. However, if thinking rationally about the world is evil, then I'd have to admit that you've got me there. I guess I'm evil.

Fifth, if atheists are the reason crime is rampant...Jesus, this is just stupid. Why do I bother?

Finally, clever use of the phrase "get off my country." Never heard that one before. I guess Ms. Shannon wants us to fall off into the ocean.

Christian, atheist, doesn't matter. I feel sorry for anyone who thinks like this, no matter what he or she believes. I can't even get angry at this one. It's nothing but sheer ignorance.

Hehe. I took poor Alice to task for her letter too, but I did it slightly differently.

I can't take anyone as mentally inept as this seriously. To be frank, I'm surprised people like this manage to get dressed or sit correctly on the toilet.
