Jim Fouts, the mayor of Warren, Michigan, recently lost a lawsuit over his refusal to allow an atheist city resident to set up a “reason station” in city hall where there has been a prayer station for years, costing the city $100,000 in the process. But he wants you to know that he’s still totally on the side of God.
A Michigan mayor who recently lost a lawsuit brought by the ACLU after he banned an atheist “reason station” on city property is now distributing “In God We Trust” posters from his office at City Hall.
According to C&G News, Warren Mayor Jim Fouts is offering the posters free of charge to the public despite the city paying $100,000 in costs, damages and fees after Fouts refused to allow the atheist station to be set up next to a “prayer station” in the City Hall atrium.
Fouts made news in July last year when he defended his decision, while comparing atheists to Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan.
“The city has certain values that I don’t believe are in general agreement with having an atheist station, nor in general agreement with having a Nazi station or Ku Klux Klan station,” Fouts said at the time. “I cannot accept or will not allow a group that is disparaging of another group to have a station here.”
Yeah, disparaging other groups is wrong. You know, like comparing atheists to Nazis and the KKK. Fouts has always been a weapons grade douchebag who thinks his job as mayor includes proselytizing and pushing his religion on local residents.
