Can’t handle a challenge to your willful ignorance of church/state separation so you’re going to toss words like “terrorists” around, eh? Because you’re soooo oppressed as a white Christian. I wonder how that makes war vets feel to hear you say that — you know, the ones who fought actual terrorists. What an ass.
A Virginia county courthouse is once again at the center of Christmas controversy after an elected official called members of a local atheist group “terrorists.” Ken Reid, a supervisor representing the Leesburg district, was not happy after local atheist leader Rick Wingrove criticized Loudoun County-sponsored holiday displaysplanned for the Leesburg courthouse lawn, The Washington Times reports.
“None of the religious organizations in the county have had any problem with what we’re doing,” Reid told newspaper in a story published Monday. “It’s strictly this group of terrorists. They’re fanatics who basically want to stamp out religion in all public life and property.”
Tensions about separation of church and state during the holidays have been high in Leesburg for several years, with the lawn of the courthouse at the center of the battle.
