Quote of the Day

[Content Note: Christian Supremacy; Islamophobia; anti-atheism; privilege.]

"I'm sick and tired of minorities running our country! As far as I'm concerned, I don't think that atheists (minority), muslims (minority) nor any other minority group has the right to tell the majority of the people in the United States what they can and cannot do here. Is everyone so scared that they can't fight back for what is right or wrong with his country?"Charlotte Lucas, co-founder of Lucas Oil, "a Corona, California-based oil products company with annual revenues in excess of $150 million," on her Facebook page in a now-deleted post.

(Although the company is based in California, the Lucases live in Indianapolis and are major players in Indiana. Their name "adorn[s] the stadium where the NFL's Indianapolis Colts play their games. Lucas Oil paid $122 million in 2012 for a 20-year contract for the naming rights to the stadium.")

There's so much I love, ahem, about this quote, but I think my favorite part is her pitiful whine about "everyone" being "so scared that they can't fight back" against the tyranny of Muslims and atheists.

LOL. Whoooooooooooops!

I always find it particularly amusing when I hear other Hoosiers moaning about how non-Christians are taking over the country, considering that it's still state law you can't buy booze on a Sunday because Jesus.
