Regarding atheists, Perino said during a live segment, "I'm tired of them." She continued, "I remember working at the Justice Department years ago when I first started right after 9/11 and a lawsuit like this came through, and before the day had finished, the United States Senate and the House of Representatives had both passed resolutions saying that they were for keeping ‘under God’ in the pledge."
"If these people really don't like it, they don't have to live here," she concluded.
Co-host Bob Beckel agreed, "Yeah, that's a good point."
Yes, it's a good point if you think a "My country, love it or leave it," attitude makes any kind of sense whatsover instead of being a kneejerk response by idiots.
Atheists catch a lot of shit. Especially when they push back against this kind of ignorant bullshit.
The next time you atheist-bashers and self-loathing atheists want to bemoan some imagined persecution of the devout by the godless, just think back to the last time you heard a TV host on a major news network use airtime to suggest that perhaps Christians should leave the United States if they don't like the separation of church and state. Oh right. That doesn't happen.
But religious people telling Atheists to leave the country? That is, evidently, just dandy.
