Atheist Tantrum

Because nothing says 'rationality' like living in terror of a being you say you don't believe exists.
The American Humanist Association sent a letter to newly elected members of Congress imploring them not to join the congressional prayer caucus, saying the caucus is a threat to the U.S. Constitution and American rights.
AHA Legal Director David Niose complains that the caucus breaks the mythical 'wall of separation' (found nowhere in the Constitution), whines about the caucus allegedly 'pandering to the Christian right' (whatever that is – I think it's a windmill), and accusing members of being 'hostile to the rights of Americans who are nonreligious and non-theistic” (with absolutely no evidence provided that this has ever happened).  The usual tantrum we're used to seeing from these folks.

And here's a kicker:
“As such, America needs a Congressional Prayer Caucus about as much as it needs a Congressional White Caucus or Congressional Male Caucus.”
Wonder why he left out the Congressional Black Caucus?

You know, now that I think about it, a cross does look a bit like a stopped windmill.  At least from a distance.  With fuzzy eyesight.
