But there is one columnist who is intentionally funny, and largely succeeds. Bob Caudle writes once a week about mostly local stories, and is pretty irreverent. Recently, he wrote a column that was pretty awesome if it is true.
I say if it is true because some of the content within it smells a bit like a put-on. I would link to the column itself, but the Times only keeps articles for free online for one week. After that one week, it will then put the article in the archives and charge a fee for you to access it. It's a stupid system, I think, but nobody consulted me on its implementation, so what I think is irrelevant.
So, I will just reproduce it here, so that I can do some real liberal mocking afterward.
Now, I don't care who you are, that's a great response right there. It's humorous and legally sound at the same time. And it is real, too.
So, what happened after Bob's column ran in the paper? Did you say that the tolerant atheists went ape-poopy about it? If you did, you are 100% correct!
Which leads me to this, the greatest kook posting I've ever seen.
Yes, this really is untouched in any way, shape, or form. If you go to the web page, you will see it just as you see it here. Yes, he is being serious. And yes, he really is this clueless and idiotic and pompous all the time.
FayettevilleFreeThinker believes that he is this font of information, and I can count on him to come through with material that I can use to mock and belittle liberals if I'm ever low on material. (By the way, have you ever noticed that so-called freethinkers always have the same beliefs as other freethinkers? Must be a coincidence.)
Now, my larger point here is that committed atheists will try anything to remove religion from what they consider to be a society that doesn't need it. You see that in Caudle's column above, in which the Freedom From Religion Foundation tried to bully into not participating in the National Day of Prayer. To the Rogers City Attorney Ben Lipscomb's credit, he told them to go soak their heads.
For a foundation that prides itself on using reason, it sure didn't use reason to sway others to their point of view. It instead tried to bully and threaten others to see their point of view.
Is there a rational position that the FFRF can advance to convince others to join them? Doesn't appear to be. Why doesn't FFRF do so? Maybe one of these jeniuses can explain that.
(If you think there is a misspelling in this post, you just might be a freethinker.)
