Worldnetdaily Lies About ‘Atheist Activist’

Ernest Perce, the former atheist turned Christian and a raging bigoted asshole, has filed a complaint about a teacher in Pennsylvania wearing a Star of David necklace at school. This would be because he’s a flaming anti-Semite. But look at how the Worldnetdaily reports it:

‘ZOMBIE MUHAMMAD’ NOW OBJECTS TO STAR OF DAVID

Atheist activist launches fight over teacher’s jewelry

The atheist activist who allegedly was attacked by a Muslim during a Halloween parade while dressed as “Zombie Muhammad” and scolded by a judge for mocking Islam’s prophet now has filed a formal complaint with a school district against a teacher for wearing a Star of David necklace.

But a top legal analyst says “Zombie Muhammad,” Ernest Perce V, the Pennsylvania state director of American Atheists, likely doesn’t have a case.

But Perce is not the director of the Pennsylvania chapter of America Atheists and he hasn’t been for quite some time. He’s also not an atheist activist. He used to be, but he’s now converted to Christianity. You know how I know they know that? Because it’s in the article itself:

He told the station he’s changed from a couple of years ago.

“Today I am an orthodox Christian,” he told WHTM.

But they don’t care. They repeatedly call him an atheist activist and claim he’s still with AA because they want to make atheists look bad, facts be damned.

    Has Perce sued WND for defamation? I wonder how much blatant misrepresentation of his atheism is done with his consent.

    It is a little sad that this quote from Mark Twain comes to my mind so often when reading your blog, Ed:

    I wonder how they could lie so. The result of practice, no doubt.

  • Randomfactor

    Just tell them the Atheist Pope excommunicated him.

  • otrame

    Hmm. That was poorly worded. I meant that on your blog you frequently quote blatant liars, not that you lie frequently.

    I love how the comments on WND are all about how this just proves muslims are offended by everything and want to outlaw all other religions.

    WND lied? Next you’re going to tell me that the sky is blue…

    On another note, Ernest Perce isn’t the first AA state level leader to be an antisemitic lunatic. Anybody remember Larry Darby? He did “great work” fighting against the 10 commandments monument, not because it’s a church state separation issue, but because it sent the message that “Jewish Supremacism is the law”.

    The teacher who had the classroom across the hall from mine would have really driven this guy crazy (crazier?).

    She was Jewish and always wore a star of David necklace, but she had a thing for crosses and collected them.

    One could often see her wearing her star of David necklace with a beautiful cross worn as a broach. I like to wear a family heirloom cross the same way. She was right- they do make lovely jewelry.

    I laughed to myself when some of the other teachers looked at her hatefully.

    Well, yeah, a Ten Commandments monument kinda does send that message. That’s part of what makes it a church-state separation issue.

    I’m not so sure the average Christian who supports these things sees it that way.
