Right-Wing Craziness

As pointed out by the Redheaded Skeptic I too want to make a comment on this.

Anne Coulter recently weighed in on the murder of Abortion provider Dr. Tiller:
"I wouldn’t kill an abortionist myself, but I wouldn’t want to impose my moral values on others. No one is for shooting abortionists. But how will criminalizing men making difficult, often tragic, decisions be an effective means of achieving the goal of reducing the shootings of abortionists?"
Seriously WTF? So she says that while she wouldn't kill someone she has no problems with others doing it? And thinks that criminalizing the murder of abortionists is a waste of time? WTF is wrong with this woman.

We all know she is crazy, at least all of us with any reason, but come on this is just sick. "They", and by "They" I mean the religious right, say that us Atheists have no moral compass because to be a good person and do the right thing requires a belief in God. Well I say that is totally wrong.

Lets look at the facts, now, and in recent history:
  • Christians oppress free speech (when it doesn't agree with them).
  • Christians oppress the right to choose
  • Christians oppress those of different sexual orientation
  • Many Christian groups oppress those of different races and beliefs
  • Christianity has, in the past, and in the bible itself, condoned slavery
  • Christianity has, in the past and present with backing from the bible, oppressed women's rights.
  • Some nutty Christians murder law abiding people in the name of God because they do not agree with the way they lead their life or the job they do.
  • Other Christians empower these murders by saying they have done nothing wrong or inciting the hatred by delivering sick twisted hateful messages in church and in the media.
  • Christianity constantly tries to suppress knowledge of science and reason, doing everything within their power to stop human progress.
  • Recent studies show that the more evangelical the Christian the more they support the use of Torture.
I am not painting ALL Christians with this brush, however the number is growing rapidly thanks to the hate filled messages from people like Anne Coulter, Bill O'Reilly, Dr. James Dobson, Pat Robertson and countless others.

The fact is that most of us Atheists lead much healthier, morally just lives than these people could ever hope to achieve with their Religion.
