Turns Out the Christian Trolls at the “Freedom From Atheism Foundation” Are Lying About Even More Than We Thought

We’ve posted a couple of times about the “Freedom From Atheism Foundation” on this site. It’s a group that rips off FFRF’s name and is basically a couple of Christian trolls.

Philip Rose looked into some of the claims on their website, including calling up the groups that supposedly endorse FFAF, and found that — surprise! — it’s all bullshit.

Door-Holding Christian Throws a Hissy Fit in Fast Food Restaurant After Employees Don’t Thank Him

I’m pretty sure that if you’re a Christian trying to do something nice for people… and it leads to you screaming in a restaurant (full of children) that you’re a “fucking Christian [who has to] stand up for fucking Christians,” you’ve defeated the purpose of whatever it is you were trying to do.

Which is completely not true, but it’s not like the facts matter to people hell-bent on promoting an agenda.

Pat Robertson: Brittany Maynard Shouldn’t Kill Herself Because “God Can Heal Anything”

Brittany Maynard (below) is the 29-year-old with brain cancer who has chosen to kill herself in a few days so that she can die with dignity before the disease takes away everything that she believes makes life worth living.

Pat Robertson commented on her story last night — you know you were waiting for his opinion — explaining how she should totally not kill herself because God will heal her… and how her decision is just a symptom of death-loving liberals:
