Comedian Dave Foley: “There’s No ‘War on Religion’ because Atheists Like Myself Have Zero Political Power”

I have no idea how I missed this when it came out, but comedian Dave Foley (you remember him from The Kids in the Hall) taped his first stand-up special “Relatively Well” not too long ago and part of his act riffs on religion.

In the video below, he talks about atheism in politics, the problem with communion wafers, and Mormon posthumous baptisms:

Love this line: “There’s no “War on Religion” because atheists like myself have zero political power in this country.” So true…
