The founder of Lucas Oil, Charlotte Lucas, has had it up to here with atheists and Muslims running this country.
The co-founder of Lucas Oil, a Corona, California-based oil products company with annual revenues in excess of $150 million, took to her Facebook page this week, complaining that she is “sick and tired of minorities running our country.”
Charlotte Lucas, who founded Lucas Oil with her husband Forrest Lucas in 1989 and now calls Indianapolis their home, called out atheists and Muslims as the main targets of her ire, reports RTV6.
Atheists and Muslims are running the country? Yeah, it must be all that representation we have in Congress. Here’s someone with the money to buy political influence and she’s bitching about being under the thumb of people who probably have the least political influence in this country. Ironically, she goes on to insist that others are too frightened to “fight back.”
In a posting on her now-deleted Facebook page Lucas wrote, “I’m sick and tired of minorities running our country! As far as I’m concerned, I don’t think that atheists (minority), muslims [sic] (minority) nor any other minority group has the right to tell the majority of the people in the United States what they can and cannot do here. Is everyone so scared that they can’t fight back for what is right or wrong with his country?”
Yeah, the audacity of atheists to say you can’t discriminate against people. The temerity of atheists to say you can’t use the government to proselytize your religion. If we don’t stop letting Christians abuse their majority status to lord over everybody else, how will we ever achieve equality in this nation for the poor, poor Christians?
This woman has so little fortitude that being rich and represented by almost every member of Congress who shares her religion still feels like oppression and she’s sneering at others for being “so scared.”
Contacted by RTV6 about her comments, Lucas told reporter Rafael Sanchez, that she did write the post and was not interested in discussing it, although she did briefly comment upon it.
“I was very upset when I wrote that,” she said. “I will not elaborate other than to say that there are certain people who are trying to make the whole world eat what they want to eat and do what they want to do. I don’t think it’s any of their business what I put in my mouth. Thank you.”
Who is trying to control what other people eat? I see people trying to control what goes on TV and into video games (no nudity or cursing, that could take Jesus out of the experience of virtually slaughtering your enemies) and who gets to marry who (and it ain’t atheists), but nobody trying to control what you can eat.
How can people believe in a fair and just god who takes an interest in the earth while this woman is rich?
