Another Reason I’m An Atheist
Because I don’t want to be even vaguely associated with the sort of religious bigotry being spouted by former LDS Bishop Utah Senator Chris Butters . He boasted ‘I've killed every one they've brought for eight years” after a civil rights bill for gay and transgendered Utahans was killed in committee. Then the hateful thug went on to say ‘It's the beginning of the end, Oh, it's worse than that. Sure. Sodom and Gomorrah was localized. This is worldwide.’ He also likened us to Muslim radicals and dubbed same-sex relationships ‘abominations.’ What a wonderful human being, a true paragon of religious virtue. Hateful, bigoted and ignorant but also typical of many in church leadership positions in all religions who justify their prejudice with their religion.
