We interrupt this regular daily blogcast (almost) for this special announcement.
Daylight Atheism contains a posting that covers the remarks made by Illinois State Representative Monique Davis against Atheist Rob Sherman.
it's dangerous for our children to even know that your philosophy exists! Now you will go to court to fight kids to have the opportunity to be quiet for a minute. But damn if you'll go to [court] to fight for them to keep guns out of their hands. I am fed up! Get out of that seat!
The post concludes with the recommendation:
If you have the time, please call or mail her - politely, but firmly - and let her know that you do not appreciate an elected official showing such hate and bigotry toward one of her own constituents. It's not out of the question that we can enlighten her to the ugliness of her own actions and shame her into treating American atheists with more respect in the future.
This is the type of case where the right thing to do would be to contact her and the Democratic Party and any and all news organizations within the state and . . .
Demand her immediate resignation!
She has proved herself unfit to be a legislator in these United States.
She does not deserve our polite and respectful disagreement.
She deserves to be replaced by somebody who will do the job of Representative the way it is supposed to be done.
She deserves to be fired.
