Watch These City Officials Struggle to Explain Why an Atheist’s Banner Was Hung Where Few People Could See It

The other day, I posted about how atheist activist Justin Vacula of the NEPA Freethought Society paid for a banner to be hung on the scaffolding in the Wilkes-Barre (Pennsylvania) public square.

Local officials hung it, but three days late and almost completely out of sight.

Or maybe they do, depending on how strong your stomach is for Moore’s preacherly delivery and his infamously blinkered views.

A newly-released video, apparently taken in January during a ‘Pastor for Life” luncheon but uploaded to YouTube just a few days ago, shows the judge as he displays an amazing lack of knowledge of non-Christian faiths by erroneously calling Buddha a god and stating that Muslims think that Mohammed, not Allah, is their Creator.
