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.

In an interview with WorldNetDaily, King explained that he once proved to Alan Colmes that America was a Christian nation.

His proof? Well… just watch:

“God also wants me to make a lot of money on the speaking circuit,” Bachmann added.

American Atheists Responds to Ten Commandments Monument Outside City Courthouse with Monument of Its Own

About a year ago, Community Men’s Fellowship (a Christian group) gave the city of Bradford County, Florida the gift of a Ten Commandments monument to put outside the county courthouse:

At the time, American Atheists filed a lawsuit against the county. County officials were ready to take down the monument… but the Community Men’s Fellowship refused to remove it. In fact, God told them not to:

… Community Men’s Fellowship wrote back: “We have prayerfully considered your request and have determined that we will not comply with the County’s order.”

How’s that for brazenness? We broke the law, but we’re not going to fix the situation.

So what could the city do?
