But that is just the problem. Repubs have no problem with christian folks spreading their seed all over this planet. But the minute an Atheist tries to get a word in they act like its the end of the world. And Ima have to call bullshit on that. Go ahead and spread all sorts of non-sensical superstition. But Darwin forbid we get a little reality to our brains.
