“If you're an atheist and don't believe in God and still want to hold office, I have a problem with that. And the constitution of North Carolina has a problem with that.”

    A freedom of religion… as long as it’s “their” religion.

    If H.K. Edgerton is serious, as I have no doubt he or she is, then, like all Xians, he or she is delusional. It would be far more intelligent and sensible to say, “If you are a theist and believe in God and still want to hold office, I have a problem with that. And all rational human beings have a problem with that.” You believe in ghosts, too? How about homeopathy? Could we hear it for a psychic? You a Billy Graham or an Oral Roberts fan?

    Note that reality based thinking demands atheism. Reality based State Constitutions do not conflict with the United States Constitution – especially in light of the direct order from the US that the states not have provisions which contradict “the boss”..

    I live in Texas and I love my state beyond description, but I despise with everything in me that she, too, has a disgusting, ignorant Constitutional clause against atheism.

    Hopefully there will come a time when theists cannot hold public office or have any capacity in public schools and when religious schools are not allowed to exist.

    His problem is probably that the atheist will be too god-damned smart and have too much common sense….

  5. Greg Says:

    Oxy, you think your god will damn him? That’s good, because his god thinks he’s right. Which god is correct? Which interpretation of the bible do we go with on this one? His? Yours? The millions of other personal interpretations? You see, there are as many gods as there are believers. That, in a nutshell, is why religion is ludicrous.

    He carries the “Stockholm Syndrome” over into being grateful for the history of slavery in America. One wonders what stories his grandparents told of their tragic history.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE.

    MERRY NEWTONDAY EVERYONE.

    The great Isaac Newton was born on 25th December.
    Jesus wasn’t.

  10. Chris Says:

    Nice, TM. AND…Unlike Jesus, Newton had some original ideas!

  11. steve Says:

    Uh, come on, AQOTD, this was just trolling in reverse.

    HKEdgerton is so far out on the wing-nut fringe, does anyone view him as credible?

    Bottom line, who, on any side of any fence, could agree with this big dummy? This quote is a non-starter. Meh. I guess I have weighed in.

  12. Chris Says:

    I agree Steve. Here’s one from someone a tiny bit more main stream:

    “No, I don’t know that atheists should be considered as citizens, nor should they be considered as patriots. This is one nation under God.”

    Dear Oxymoronic Christhinker,
    Your Tougue will be burned in Hell!

  14. solomon Says:

    Dear Greg,
    There will be many believers, but there will alway be one true god.There could’nt be many gods.If there is, there will be chaos.Can you see all the creations and all the systems governing the heavenly bodies are all in order without a tiny bit of error for billions of years.If there are many gods, each god may want to present their own creations,for example your nose will be upside down (excuse me), or maybe one god want the sun to rise from the west.Can you see this simple logic.So there is only one true god that the knowledge of his existence have been told to human being.The other gods are all lies made up by men.This one true god is ALLAH the almighty.

  15. Greg Says:

    Solomon, you proved my point by claiming that Oxy will burn in hell. This is your god speaking. Oxy’s god supports him. My next door neighbor’s god says it’s okay to fornicate outside of wedlock. And the list goes on.

    Yes, I can see your logic,and yes, it is “simple”…..

  16. Chris Says:

    That had to have been a joke, Greg. It’s Tech, pimping for a heathen god.

  19. tony cynic Says:
