Why are we atheists so hard on religion? Here’s one of many answers: Sharron Angle.
Angle is the Republican candidate for incumbent Harry Reid’s Senate seat (Reid is, of course, the Senate majority leader).
As reported by HuffPo, which has an audioclip from a radio interview with Bill Manders, Angle thinks she has a personal pipeline to God, who’s advising her what He wants to do about abortion:
Angle: I’m pro responsible choice. There is choice to abstain choice to do contraception. There are all kind of good choices.
Manders: Is there any reason at all for an abortion?
Angle: Not in my book.
Manders: So, in other words, rape and incest would not be something?
Angle: You know, I’m a Christian and I believe that God has a plan and a purpose for each one of our lives and that he can intercede in all kinds of situations and we need to have a little faith in many things.
So, to those of you who want us to make nice to religion: you do know, don’t you, that lots of American Christians feel this way? Are we supposed to look for common ground with such lunacy?
