Rep. Steve King: If You Apologize for a Mistake and Ask for Forgiveness, Then We Live in a Christian Nation

If that headline didn’t make sense, it’s because Rep. Steve King (R-IA) didn’t make any sense either.

Beck argued that atheists tried to stop it because they were offended… and no one has a right not to be offended:
