Rob Sherman, an atheist who’s always ready to file a lawsuit if there’s a church/state violation in Illinois and who loves to sing his own praises, was in a car crash over the weekend. His wife and daughter were in the car with him.
He’s ok. His family is ok. The car’s not ok, but the crash wasn’t his fault.
The only reason I’m mentioning this is because Rob, in true form, used the situation to assert his beliefs:
Amazingly, everybody walked away from the crash completely uninjured. A big thank you goes out, not to God, who is make-believe, but to the automobile engineers who did such a great job designing those vehicles that it was the cars that completely absorbed the impact, rather than the passengers.
A lot of the article makes me just roll my eyes, but I’ll admit, that reaction is one you rarely hear in these kinds of situations. And it’s completely accurate. I’m surprised we don’t hear it more often.
Gotta respect a guy who never loses focus…
