In his latest video, Catholic supremacist and extremist anti-gay activist Theodore Shoebat called for an end to the freedom of religion in America and for books written by atheists to be burned.

Only “idiots” and “morons” support the freedom of religion, Shoebat declared, adding that the government should not be “giving  freedom to those who say there is no God.”

“Atheism should not be allowed,” he said. “Richard Dawkins’ books? Burn ’em all. Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris, all these books, burn ’em. They shouldn’t be allowed. They’re absolutely dangerous.”

“Anti-Christian” views “should not be allowed in society,” Shoebat said, because they are “dangerous” and “demonic” and so allowing them to exist in the name of freedom of religion only leads to abortion, misery and violence.

“That’s what atheism leads to,” he said. “A giant mountain of skulls and dead people.”

It is no small irony, of course, that Shoebat warns that atheism leads to mass death considering that he openly and repeatedly calls for everyone who doesn’t share his radical views to be put to death.

For Certain Christians, Lying for Jesus is Justified in the Abortion Wars

Leviticus 19:11 makes clear: "Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another."There's quite a bit of the Bible that conservative Christian activists tend to leave out, but Biblical prohibitions against lying are routinely given short shrift by those intent on seeing God's will done on Earth. We don't have to look far for examples of it -- from Christians arguing that LGBT people are predators to politicians pretending that being gay is a choice, these lies are common.The Washington Post has a good look at another popular outlet for faith-based lying: the abortion debate, and the notoriously deceptive idea of "crisis pregnancy centers." Reporter Petula Dvorak examines the work of one Virginia activist, Pat Lohman, in particular.shutterstock_296153609
