Local Theocracy Runs Atheists Out of Town

The Constitution is supposed to protect us from religious theocracy, but it has failed. West Chester, Pennsylvania is once again using religion and religious values to run and attempt to run atheists out of town. Here I present to you two stories that should frighten and motivate you.

The Salvation Army Is On The March

Stores have started to put out their Christmas decorations and yesterday the restaurant I ate lunch at was invaded by the Salvation Army. I guess it is time to gear up for this year’s War on Christmas.
