Holy Bile: the damage that atheism has caused and is causing

This from a sitting US congressman:

I was very moved by the song that talked about the damage that atheism has caused and is causing. It was very moving…. The songs carry the sense that evil will not prevail, and so the message is that the truth ultimately prevails…. These times will pass because eternal truth will survive atheism and the difficulties of the 20th Century.
-Lincoln Diaz-Balart, R-FL CD21

Can you imagine what the reaction would be if an atheist congressperson were to intone about the damage religious fervor has done to this country?

Of course, atheist politicians are as real as Clean Coal. But it does astound me when any religious person makes the claim that atheism is damaging and destructive, especially in light of the Christian and Jewish wars against Islam currently taking place in Iraq, Afghanistan, and in Gaza. Don't even pretend for a moment that these are wars on terror. There would be no Islamic terrorists if it were not for Christians and Jews stealing Arab land and resources.
