In doing some research for my book, I found out that Madalyn Murray O’Hair’s two sons were beaten up several times when she was challenging the recitation of the Lord’s Prayer in their school. One of those sons was William Murray, who is now a Christian fundamentalist. And the man is either utterly irrational or a baldfaced liar. Here’s what he writes on the website of his PAC:
Earlier this year, Christian historian David Barton compiled a lengthy list of Obama’s anti-religious policies and statements. He’s called Obama the most “biblically-hostile” president in U.S. history. We agree wholeheartedly with Barton. Why is this important? It’s important because Obama directly threatens our religious liberties and the First Amendment’s protection of free speech in America.
Obama is waging a war on religious liberty – but he’s stopped waging a war on Islamic terrorism here and around the globe. He and his leftist buddies in the administration actually view the Muslim Brotherhood as a new ally!
Only on Planet Wingnuttia has Obama stopped fighting Islamic terrorism. On this planet, he’s ordered hundreds of drone strikes and has overseen the death or capture of dozens of terrorists. You really have to wonder if Murray knows that and doesn’t care, if he’s just discovered that there’s money to be made in peddling bullshit to ignorant fundies.
