Controversy escalates after Loudoun supervisor calls atheists terrorists
This year, Loudoun County leaders hoped to avoid yet another season of controversy and media attention over the placement of holiday displays on the Leesburg courthouse grounds.But the focus on Loudoun's infamous annual debate has only heightened in recent weeks after local atheists presented readings from Charles Darwin on the public property and county Supervisor Kenneth D. Ken Reid (R-Leesburg) referred to the the group as terrorists for their continued opposition to religious displays on the grounds.

As I posted on that site:
Reid is stumping because he's as dumb as one.
Wanting a separation of cult and state is "terrorism"?
Preventing a country from becoming a theocracy is "terrorism"?
No. Terrorism, for the uneducated and inebriated like Reid, is the use of (or the threat of) violent force to coerce people. Far right wingnut christians throwing bombs at abortion clinics is terrorism. Wingnut christians using words to incite murder is terrorism.
Asking for existing laws to be obeyed is NOT terrorism. Asking that all points of view have the same protection under the law is NOT terrorism.
