Earlier this month, no candidate won the majority of votes in an election to become the next mayor of Nashville, Tennessee. So on September 10, there will be a runoff election between the top two vote-getters, Megan Barry and David Fox.
Sen. Ted Cruz saying something overblown and idiotic is just par for the course by now, but when he compares church/state separation advocates to religious radicals who will kill those who think differently, it’s at least worth mentioning.
Cruz appeared on Iowa radio host Jan Mickelson‘s show a few days ago and echoed the host’s words about how the “atheist Taliban” is waging an all-out assault on Christians:
A terrifying video began circulating on Arab social media over the weekend of a preschooler dressed in Islamic State garb, confidently wielding a hunting knife as he beheads a white teddy bear.
One of the questions church/state separation activists are trying to figure out is whether other monuments will be allowed to go up as well. The Satanic Temple, for example, has already said they want their statue of Baphomet (below) alongside the Christian monument.
