We should be ashamed.

What if you were in a prison cell facing possible execution for saying god didn’t exist?  Wouldn’t you want all the atheists, Christians, Muslims, and who the fuck ever back in the United States to pull out all the stops to try and help?  You bet your ass you would.

We got 8,000 signatures on a petition to the president to intervene.  8,000 signatures…with that petition going through every conceivable outlet in the atheist movement.  How many saw it and didn’t give enough of shit to take 60 seconds to register and sign it?  How many of us couldn’t find even that much empathy for a brave human being who was suffering?  What, was Wheel of Fortune on?

If you had the chance to sign it and didn’t, you should be ashamed of yourself.  Period.


If you want to help further or help at all, there are still ways it can be done.
