Good points actually ... 'But it's my religion' is often used as an excuse for what would otherwise be crimes.
Same here, a kid is starved to death for religious reasons. If you're going to accept discrimination for religious reasons, why not murder?

Can he leap tall buildings or fly like a bird?  If not, forget him.

Wish Book of Satan Man would apply to visit the schools just to see their reaction.

I bet some of the threats are as real as can be. The hatred is most certainly real.

I'm getting that "I really hate Christians" feeling...ugh. What difference does it make that there are Christians who are well behaved and do not threaten non-Christians? Even the idea that most Christians would never do that is losing its luster with me.

Sadly, there is a fundamental problem in this country when it comes to "live and let live". Some groups refuse to allow others to live their lives without religion and its nasty baggage.

A Tennessee mom said she and her child have been threatened after they complained about “Bible Man” visits to her son’s school.

The Christian-themed superhero character played by Horace Turner has been visiting Grundy County schools for nearly 40 years, but the atheist mom contacted a national secular group over her concerns, reported WRCB-TV.


The Freedom From Religion Foundation sent a letter on behalf of the woman, who asked to remain anonymous in news reports, questioning the constitutionality of the in-school visits.

While some Christian evangelizers come as wolves dressed in sheep’s clothing, this wolf comes dressed as a wolf,” the group said in a letter. “’Bible Man’s’ overtly religious and proselytizing messages are explicit.”

Turner leads students in Bible readings, sets up “baby Jesus” displays at school, preaches in sermons that “Jesus died on the cross for our sins,” and distributes religious literature, the group said.

He has also spoken at schools in Alabama, but Tennessee state officials recently promised to end Turner’s visits to elementary schools.

The Grundy County mother said her son, who is an atheist like his parents, was not initially aware the lessons were optional.

“As he got older, it bothered him that he had to sit through this because it’s not his religion,” his mother said.

The school district suspended Bible Man’s visits for now, although administrators hope he will return on a “club schedule” – which would allow students to choose whether to participate.

“I believe the perception was that we’re trying to get rid of him, and that was not the perception we wanted to present,” said Willie Childers, the interim superintendent.

The atheist mother said she has received threats involving her son on Facebook, including a photo of a burning house.

“We don’t want people to be mad — we just want people to make sure there’s an alternative something for the kids to do,” she said.

“We just can’t get over how much hate there is in their loving, Christian hearts,” she added.

Awwww...poor persecuted Christians. Their privileges are just slipping through their fingers.

Here's a very simple way to answer anyone who would mount an attack based on a politician "not supporting the bible". Politician being attacked responds by saying "I think it's highly irresponsible to create a situation that will inevitably be dragged through the courts with no real chance of winning."  Looks astonished that the other guy would even think such a thing, shakes head knowingly, with a dash of condescending pity. "As an elected official, entrusted by my constituents to be responsible with state funds, I will never be so reckless with taxpayer's money."

End of attack. The only thing far right-ies love more than their God is their money.

Jobs, health care for its citizens, fuck that.  The bible being the state book is all they need.  Citizens...heal thyself.

The cross will soon be the state tree.
