In the wake of the massive tragedy in Norway, I implore all my atheist friends here to join the National Atheist Party. Your life may one day depend on it.
Anders Breivik may be just one motivated theocrat in another country, but it's not like we haven't seen this before.
I was there, in Oklahoma working as a news director at a radio station, when Tim McVeigh blew up the Murrah Federal Building. I saw the bodies. I reported on the aftermath for months. It can happen again.
And that is not the only threat to our collective well being. We have this looney teabag movement that carries guns to political events. They're controlled by the religious right, who act as gatekeepers to keep out anyone who threaten their agenda.
Then there's Bachmann, Perry, Cain, and even Roy Moore, the 10 commandments judge from Alabama, all running for president.
This may just seem like a healthy exercise of democracy (kind of), but when they lose, they're gonna be pissed
What's more, the nutjobs like Breivik & McVeigh, and even the non murderous ones in the tea party, feel they are morally sanctioned to impose their silly ass fairy tale book on all of humanity.
They will not stop until they win or are soundly defeated.
This is why I joined the National Atheist Party, and ask you to do the same.
Organize or die. There is no third choice.
