Atheist arrested

One of the more popular comments I receive when posting on the arrests of religious hypocrites is this, “Why don’t you post on the arrests of atheists?”

The answer can be found in this Google News search. The short answer is that there are few arrests of anyone who identifies as an atheist. We don’t see headlines that read, “Atheist teacher arrested.” Atheism does not carry the same weight as theism. There are no atheist pastors, Sunday school teachers or deacons. We don’t operate this way. We are not a religion.

What did show up in the Google News search?

The group who are terrorizing a country
Ed Arnold and the Flying Bandit
Defying Taboo, Middle East Atheists Launch TV Channel

When an atheist is arrested, believe me, I will post on it. Hypocrisy is hypocrisy.
