Another anti-atheist campaign ad by Elizabeth Dole

I previously wrote about the North Carolina senate race, and Republicans attacking the Democratic candidate for associating with (shudder) the godless. Apparently they’ve gone one step further and released a TV ad falsely implying that Kay Hagan, the Democrat, is an atheist herself. Hagan, naturally, is enraged at the attack on her Christian faith, and has denounced the smear campaign associating her with nonbelief.

After November 4, when Americans elect a new pastor-in-chief, along with new sets of national deacons and elders, maybe the dust will settle down.

    I was very pleased to see that Kay Hagan won. I would like to see this as the voter’s rebuke to Elizabeth Dole and others who use such sleazy, despicable tactics. It would, of course, be even better if one candidate could call the other an atheist and everybody said “So?”
