Congratulations to Dan Barker, Annie Laurie Gaylor and the rest of the folks at the Freedom From Religion Foundation. It isn’t every day that you get blamed for violence and unrest that you had nothing to do with, but that’s what Matt Barber and Mat Staver are saying.
Barber asserted that “the greatest solution for reconciliation is in the person of Jesus Christ,” declaring that America must experience a revival in which people turn “toward the founder of the universe and he who is responsible, I don’t care what anybody says, for the founding of this great nation.”
Staver, the head of Liberty Counsel, declared that there would have been unrest in Ferguson regardless of what the grand jury decided because of the lack of state-sponsored religion.
“When we start booting God out of the schools and we boot him out of our communities and we have the silly lawsuits by Freedom From Religion Foundation and others who just want to erase God from the public square,” Staver said, “there’s consequences when we operate in an environment that is godless.”
The Christian right still hasn’t figured out the idea of causation.
