Religion empowers idiocy

I’ve often been asked what moved me to become an activist atheist, rather than just a live-and-let-live atheist.  Well, you’ve probably seen me blog about my home town in Arkansas, but here’s where I went to college.

Next on the campaign to protect rights that aren’t under assault, they’ll fight for their right to shower in their own bathrooms.  Unless they live in Arkansas.

Growing up around stuff like this made me seriously worry about the adverse effects of widespread assurance that stupid, stupid opinions/beliefs were endorsed by god.  This poster is a testament to how religion empowers idiocy.

Now I’m all hacked off.  I think I deserve Jimmy John’s.  I’m gonna make that happen.
