Elizabeth Dole: Anti-Atheist Bigot

There's really not much to say about this, except to say that Elizabeth Dole's bigoted rant against atheists shows how absurd the claims of discrimination against Christians is. Nothing close to this exists against Christians in our society. Dole criticizes atheists for daring to want to hold office (like Christians do), have the Pledge of Allegiance be neutral to religions or lack thereof, and to have the Boy Scouts and other groups that receive government funding live up to the same nondiscrimination standards that Christians like Dole would be screaming their hypocritical heads off about were they denied to Christians.

Luckily, the forces of good are winning this battle: Hagan - 45, Dole - 42. If you live in North Carolina, go vote for Kay Hagan, and send a message about anti-atheist bigotry. Atheists are good citizens (contra GHW Bush) and vote, and its high time we demonstrated this to bigots like Dole.
