"all atheists will be punished by being throw out of the state with a catapult"

You can do something similar when testifying in court, but most defense attorneys don't recommend it.

Or so I've heard.

You can affirm privately in the judges chambers and then he will say you've already been sworn in when you take the stand.

While serving jury duty in Minnesota, I noticed when witnesses took an oath, the bailiff would say "Do you swear under the penalty of perjury that the testimony you are about to give shall the the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?", and that's it. If you ask me, the threat of getting your ass thrown in jail is a much better way to get the truth out of people than the threat of "god" striking you down.

Oh, and add my name to the list of guys who'd bang Rachel, her being a lesbian be damned.

The most honest council member in Asheville. I'm sure many, many public officials simply mouth the words.

What an attention whore. There's plenty of atheists in office, but they know that bullshitting the religious aspect is key to political success in this country.

Especially in the South.

As a politician he is supposed to represent the values of those that voted for him or of the citizens that he represents. He is representing their desire for secularization of the government, which is evidently a problem.

Maddow is simply showing that he supports supposed American values. Even if she shares those values also I guess she is a bitch for doing it on her own show; where she is supposed to analyze political issues.

What an attention whore. There's plenty of 5-star ratings here, but he knows that bullshitting the 2-star is key to trolling success in these comments.

Especially for a guy with no submits.

Johnny Madhouse
I have something like ten submits and everything I say is worthless

RomancingTrain
Yeah! Atheists should just bend over and take all the persecution, why rock the boat?

Toenails
Asking a question like that rocks the boat, Romance.

Stop it or I'll fucking break you, so help me god.

I'm really glad that Maddow is bringing attention to this.

Yakety sax worthy behavior.

Hey, that's my line!

The conservative movement boggles my mind. They want freedom of religion; but not freedom of not having any religion. They want women in Afghanistan to have the freedom not to be forced to wear the hijab; but they don't want women here to have the freedom to choose to have an abortion.

I dunno about any of the rest of you, but I've really come to find conservatives and their antics extremely tiresome. That's why I don't rate these clips as often as I used to.
Hooker
Whoa, wait. What does the hijab have to do with abortion? And I don't think Conservatives want freedom of religion as much as they want freedom of Christian religion.

Innocent Bystander
Freedom OF religion doesn't mean freedom FROM religion. You gotta believe in something, ANYTHING, just don't believe in nothing, k?

manning_krull
I wonder who conservative Christians like better, atheists or Muslims.

Desidiosus
I just used that as an example. They're all for women's rights to a very limited point. Beyond that they're not interested.

Hooker
People really need to quit isolating specific ideas and then using that to accuse people of being hypocritical. Yeah, conservatives in general believe in women's rights, but (in general) they believe in the right to life of an unborn child more. The two ideas aren't in disagreement at all.

So a bunch of craphole states require you to believe in God in order to get elected?

I'm not surprised, because it'd take a fucking miracle for an open atheist to get elected in half of those states.
Camonk
Really all six. Sadly I got two of those under my belt as places I've lived. Goddammit.

Camonk
When religion becomes a public matter, shit gets NUTS.
memedumpster
If I say "so help me God," I'm fucking lying, and so is anyone else who says it.

It's pretty amazing that there is a loophole like that in NC, in that you'd think an embarrasing lapse of the first amendment like that would have been gotten rid of long before late 2009, not that NC'd have said clause to begin with.

I am of course waiting for the inevitable storm of fussing and handwringing which will be produced from both sides as the clause remains on the books and this guy keeps his job and the status quo stays the same.

Hey perhaps this will even result in NC democratically including a "no homos eiather" clause!

Where are rachels doctor who glasses?
dicktatortot
Wow this really pisses me off. I mean honestly, so he doesn't believe in a magic sky fairy. SO FUCKING WHAT!!! I really hope that someone tries to enforce this, and then anouther someone takes the American Constitution and beats them with it...alot.
Chip
...Huh. Apparently I can't just hate on NC for this. My state, Maryland, has the same problem. Thanks Rachel Maddow!

So now I've written my three state delegates! Nothing will come of this.
fluffy
Maryland is the only one of the six states that surprises me with having that issue.
