As posted on that site, barring censorship:


Ignorante hate literature is being republished because atheists are more numerous and vocal. Where’s the surprise in that?

The same thing happened after 2008, republican…I mean, repulsive racist hate literature was republished after Obama was elected, along with many death threats. No doubt at least one…individual will assume that I support Obama by saying that. I don’t.

Those who challenge corrupt and biased systems are never appreciated by those who benefit from the corruption and bias.

Typical theist. He's making money off the faithful, so rather than accept that critical thinking might lead one to the conclusion that there's huge holes in the logic, such as it is, that underpins christianity, he's got to find issues to explain away atheism. "All atheists have father issues" is easier for him to accept than the idea that some folks might not be willing to accept as true an elaborate story about an invisible guy in the sky who is all-powerful, killed his own son to save us from his anger about someone eating an apple, and intends to express his deep love for us by roasting the majority of all humans who ever lived for eternity if we doubt that story. Someone has denial issues, and I don't think it is the atheists.
