The Atheists Are Coming! The Atheists Are Coming!And leading the charge is 75 year-old Rep. Pete Stark (D-Ca), according to the Secular Coalition of America:
There is only one member of Congress who is on record as not holding a god-belief.Okay, so he's a nontheist and a member of the Unitarian Church instead of an atheist, but give the man credit for admitting even that much, considering nonbelievers are the latest pariah of the American political system.
Will he get any grief for this? Probably not from his liberal district which has re-elected him since 1972, but wingnuts will have a field day using him for the tired canard that liberals = godless and godless = lack of morals or ethics, nonsense that a modern, civilized society like ours should grow out of sooner than later.
