Emily Dicktwainhepqueenrowkins

Emily Dickinson, Mark Twain, Katherine Hepburn, Butterfly McQueen, Clarence Darrow and Richard Dawkins, what do they have in common? They were (or are, in the case of the only one living) all skeptics of religion, either atheists or agnostics or butterflies. What's more, their quotes are now appearing in buses, courtesy of the Freedom From Religion Foundation.

“As my ancestors are free from slavery, I am free from the slavery of religion"-Butterfly McQueen

McQueen died in 1995 at age 84 when her clothes caught fire while attempting to light a lantern (the Mock God and Die curse in action once again?). From the flames of an exploding kerosene lamp to the eternal flames of Hell, I suppose, right Christian?

Of course, as usual, freethought free speech brings out the utter hypocrisy (and projection) of the religious fanatic:

Rep. Scott Suder, R-Abbotsford, said FFRF is spreading a message of “hate,” adding the foundation is intolerant of Wisconsinites who believe in God.

“They’re an ultra-fringe wacko organization that is desperately trying to get attention, and I would just encourage people to just ignore them,” Suder said. “No one pays attention to anything they do.”

No one pays attention, except religious wacko Scott Suder, that is. Isn't it interesting that Mr. Suder thinks that simply informing people that not everyone (including some very famous and admired figures) believes in god is the equivalent of "spreading hate". He should join the "hate speech" wackos on the left, as they are his true compatriots in crushing freedom and enslaving minds!
