A Democratic Congressman, Rep. Jim McDermott, omitted ‘under God’ from the Pledge of Allegiance and there was an uproar.
Rep. Pete Sessions, R-Texas, accused McDermott of
“embarrassing the House and disparaging the majority of Americans who share the values expressed in the pledge.”
“He and those like him stand more for the liberal left than they do for our friends and neighbors.”
As an atheist, I am so offended by Session’s remark. He makes it sound like non-religious, liberal people like me are as bad as criminals. We don’t count as “friends and neighbors.” Well, I wouldn’t want to be his friend anyway. :asshole:
I think I am a more decent human being than those Catholic priests who molest children, those delusional mothers who kill their children because god told them to, those religious fanatics who kill mass groups of people with different or no religions, or people who just don’t understand that there are people who do not want to include “under God” in the pledge.
