If you look at the universe and study the universe, what you find is that there is no evidence that we need anything other than the laws of physics and the other laws of science to explain everything we see. There's absolutely no evidence that we need any supernatural hand of god. -- Lawrence Krauss, World-Renowned Physicist
There is probably no other notion in any field of science that has been as extensively tested and as thoroughly corroborated as the evolutionary origin of living organisms. -- Encyclopedia Britannica
FAITH. No one word personifies the absolute worst and most wicked properties of religion better than that. Faith is mind-rot. It’s the poison that destroys critical thinking, undermines evidence, and leads people into lives dedicated to absurdity. It’s a parasite regarded as a virtue. -- PZ Myers
Religion is the antithesis of science, an anesthetic for the mind that disables critical thought and encourages the acceptance of inanity as fact, and wishful thinking as evidence. -- PZ Myers

65% of Americans want to throw out our constitution so they can have their Christian theocracy.

65% of Americans Favor Prayer in Public Schools

Part of the problem is Christians are world-class stupid assholes.

Another part of the problem is Christians don't understand how nauseating it is for a normal person (AKA atheist) to be forced to listen to their babbling for their dead Jeebus. It's like being trapped in an insane asylum. Or maybe they do understand but they're stupid assholes so they don't care.

Another part of the problem is a misunderstanding (or intentional disrespect) of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment (the first ten amendments to the US Constitution are called the Bill of Rights).

Here's the entire First Amendment. Let's take a close look at it.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

For this post we're only interested in the first two clauses of the First Amendment, the Establishment Clause (Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion) and the Free Exercise Clause (or prohibiting the free exercise thereof).

Please notice the Establishment Clause is the first clause of the first amendment. I suggest it was the first part of the Bill of Rights because America's founding fathers thought it was the most important.

I have frequently visited Christian Taliban blogs so I know how Christian assholes think. (They're not very good at thinking. These are the same retards who deny basic scientific facts that conflict with their childish idiotic supernatural fantasies.) These Christian theocrats like to pretend the Free Exercise Clause cancels out the Establishment Clause.

No, Christian retards, it doesn't work that way. If that was the intention then the Establishment Clause wouldn't be there.

The Free Exercise Clause means you idiots can make fools out of yourselves all you want.

The Establishment Clause restricts your insanity to outside our governments. Therefore you can show off your breathtaking stupidity anywhere you want except in our city governments, our state governments, our federal government, and our public schools.

Some Christian assholes say the Establishment Clause does not apply to local and state governments. They are ignoring (or more likely they know nothing about it) the Due Process Clause of the 14th Amendment which the Supreme Court has repeatedly used to apply the First Amendment to each state including any local government.

A small minority of Christians get it. They understand the Establishment Clause (or what our 3rd president and the author of the Declaration of Independence called our wall of separation between church and state) is in everyone's best interest.

To the vast majority of American Christians who don't respect our constitution: Get out of my country. Go live in a theocracy like Iran where you belong.
