Yeah, this is what I call the crazies falling all out of the closet! Christians raging against anything different from what they think is right is nothing new, of course. I feel bad for the poor Fox news interns that were rushing to remove the 8,000 death threats. What bought all this on you may ask?
The Fox News Facebook page got over 8,000 death threats posted on its wall after the Communications Director for the American Atheists, Blair Scott, appeared on the network’s “America Live” discussing the group’s lawsuit hoping to stop the erection of a crucifix at the World Trade Center Memorial.
Before I get to discussing the extent of the crazy let me first allow you a small sample of the type of crazy we are analyzing.

If you are reading this and consider yourself sane these comments may lead you to wonder exactly who these people are that call themselves Christian. It won’t be long before the pro-religious people comment about how these type of Christians don’t represent ‘real Christians’ and that may be on an individual basis. Speak for yourself.
However, I still have an issue with the entire body of religious influence that is forced down the throats of the American people. The lawsuit that spurned all of this hatred was filed by the political group the American Atheists in a move to block the inclusion of a crucifix from being displayed at the future home of the World Trade Center monument.
Why do these Christians think everyone wants to participate with team Jesus? And when you say you don’t want to play with them in the magical sand box they storm off, come back and set fire to you AND the sand box.
Didn’t they learn anything in pre-school? Do they not teach tolerance and humility during Sunday mass anymore?
Let me reiterate.
Sometimes things can’t be the way YOU want them to be. Just because you think Jesus is your best friend doesn’t mean that I have to invite the both of you to my graduation party.
Sometimes a metaphor helps. Did that help?
Insisting that a crucifix be included over the grave site of people who were not Christian and may have very well died in part due to this country’s twisted self perception of perfection and hypocritical ideals is a slap in the face to those of us who DO believe in the mantra of ‘freedom’.
My version of freedom means that I am free from your version of religion; it shan’t be shoved down the throat of the people.
Now that may sound a bit strange to the people that are liberal. Liberals are often people who are polite, considerate and kind enough to not scream, yell, kick and make death threats to those who disagree with their opinions and beliefs.
I’m not that type of liberal, as you can see. And there should be more like me.
Fed the *uck up.
Competent enough in the art of government to know the original intention of the Constitution.
Brave enough to challenge bullsh*t.
Weary of the spoiled, dismissive, and persistent attack on American freedoms by people who are taking their freedom to an extreme.
But maybe I’m wrong and the crusafix should be included at the monument. That was the issue, wasn’t it?
In a civilized society we would allow our courts to determine what will happen next; a lawsuit was filed, after all.
However, the backlash from the Christian crazies clearly show that these people don’t consider the laws and systems in place that we all must follow to be something that applies to them. They have a deity pulling their strings; rather they have representatives that claim a deity that pull their strings and they love it. It’s a very powerful thing to allow the common folks to feel special.
But then they come out the dark hallows of the caverns and attack others who are different from them. Eight thousand people took time out of their day to write hate messages to a media outlet that covered a story about something that concerns the pubic about something for the public which will be paid for with public funding.
Eight thousand people were incited by the possibility that a crucifix would not be included at the World Trade Center memorial.
With examples like this extreme reaction does it not alarm you as to the moral fitness and competence of some people that blindly rally on the side of Christianity?
It’s kinda ironic. This is an instance of insane, fundamental, radical
domestic terrorists reacting to the human and financial capital we’ve suffered at the hands of the other insane, fundamentalist, radical terrorists that took down the World Trade Center!
Are you not perturbed that some feel no obligation or consideration other than that which they make up in their heads; they perceive themselves to be the absolute in righteousness.
Does this not alarm you?
Because if it doesn’t.
