Fox News and other right wing blowhards have been on a full scale assault against atheists the last few days. Apparently, people on the right have decided it’s time to make atheists shut the fuck up, to put them back in their place, and to teach them they better NOT speak up about their dirty atheism now that the good Christian folk have sallied forth with their infallible pronouncements on facts and history.
One Fox host has corrected the historical record on religious violence and issued the infallible edict that only Islam has been violent and no one has ever been killed in the name of Christ or any other non-Muslim religion Another right wing pundit has corrected the historical record on slavery and insisted it was only Christianity that finally got rid of it everywhere in the world. And now a Fox News “historian” has assured that the nasty atheists better shut the fuck up when it comes to Jonah and the whale, because there is, historically, “ample evidence” for the story of Jonah living in the belly of a fish for three days and other Bible tales to convince atheists.
Atheists better toe the line, know their place and stop being so uppity.
