The Way This Exchange Between Atheist Seller and Christian Buyer on eBay Ended is Ridiculous

One of the readers of this site (“co—”) recently sold her Kindle on eBay, but the buyer (“lu—”) wasn’t happy with the product she received. She claimed it wasn’t working. So the two of them had a quick back-and-forth exchange until the conflict was resolved.

But just wait until you read how it was resolved (click image to enlarge, or read the text below):

A Georgia Republican Legislator Wants To Legalize Prayer During Morning Announcements, Football Games, and Graduation

On the surface, the bill appeared to be useless — as one Americans United lawyer said of similar legislation, “This bill is a solution in search of a problem.” It said students could “express their beliefs about religion in homework, artwork, and other written and oral assignments free from discrimination”… even though they could always do that. It said students could form religious clubs that met before or after school… which was also never in doubt.

Here’s where things got really weird. The bill said:
