Last night at the show, we had the
two Atheist kids that were thrown out of the "Boy Scouts"
for not thanking god, or some nonsense. I had talked to the
father on the phone on a radio show. I was against him,
saying, although I was Atheist; they had a right to throw
out anyone they want. He pointed out how much government
support they get and, well, he was just right. "Live by the
feds, die by the feds." If you want that government money,
you have to let everyone in. I think we should pull all the
government help from them (stop letting them use schools and
stuff) and then just call them a religious organization and
ridicule them. But, the way they were fighting is another
good way to do it. The two boys, are just strong and smart
and it's a family that fills me with joy. Mom, Dad, and the
kids were all clear-eyed and cared about truth. They cared
about our country. They said that P&T were real heroes and
helped them through the whole ordeal. I was so proud. I
was so honored to have them in the crowd.
There's nothing odd, or hip about the way they look. Mom
was just a regular Mom type. After, I shook their hands over
and over and introduced them to Teller, and he went nuts, I
said to the Mom, "Fight the power." She said, quietly but
with such strength, "Oh, we do." YEAH! And this was the
same night I got attacked by a xtian woman after the show.
It filled me with hope. Oh, I love this family.
