So ABC finally aired their bit on the Smalkowski Affair. Sure it was only ~5 minutes of a 2 hour show on "Lets all credulously accept complete and utter bullshit! Magic hugs! Magic tears! Maaagic YAAAY!!!"... But it was actually kinda good.
They gave the evil Good Christian(TM) fuckers who attacked this family about 2 second of air-time to say "Um, we didnt do anything wrong" and the rest of the segment was very sympathetic coverage of the shit Nichole had to deal with.
Nicole said that once she told peers at school that she was an atheist, her relationship with the other kids changed. "You know they would call me devil worshipper. I'd walk down the halls, people would laugh at me. They would look at me really weird and stare me down."
Then, according to Nicole, the teachers also began harassing her, one going as far as to say, "This is a Christian country, and if you don't like it, get out."
Diane Summerford is a substitute teacher at the high school Nicole attends and is married to one of the town's religious leaders, Pastor Truman Summerford. She said there was no discrimination against Nicole. "I have never seen anything in the school where the kids treated Nicole badly. We have good kids that care, and they are good Christian kids."
And as for the game-end tradition, Pastor Summerford said, "It is still a free country we are living in today. And our young people are standing up for their faith as they do this."
This is why I trust True Christians(TM) as far as I can throw them. Evil little fuckers, attacking a 13 year old girl, and oh gosh golly! They didnt do anything! Theyre Good Christian Kids(TM)!
... But if they did, they were in the right!
Liberal Christians, appeaser atheists-- you get these jackasses in line, or shut your damn mouths when people like me deal with them.
Ill add a clip of it to YouTube the second someone uploads it. There was a bit with Richard Dawkins, so Im sure he will put something up!
