What Is An Evolution Kid?

Oh the horror of it all, they took down Jesus' head in Kansas and some people are pissed:

Local residents were disgusted that the picture was taken down.

“Oh man, it’s getting bad,” former student Erika Semey told the Eagle. “That’s what’s wrong with this world. Not enough people have Christ in their lives.”

“I’m sick of this,” Jack Lynch, 53, told Reuters. “This country was founded on Christian beliefs. In God we trust. Now people want to come in and change all that. If they don’t like it let them leave.”

Another former student, 22-year-old Cody Busby, told the paper the picture was on the hall when he was a “church kid” at the school.

“Nobody else in the school seemed to be bothered by it,” he said. “There were only one or two evolution kids and they didn’t seem to be bothered by it.

“With all the bullying that goes on in schools and how all the kids divide up into cliques, I think Jesus being there didn’t hurt a thing.”
What is atheist sniping? Did child-raping priests have enough Christ in their lives? Where do the students who "don't like it" go to? Perhaps the local Catholic school? What is a church kid? What is an evolution kid?

Any atheist student probably knows better than to complain about a picture of Jesus hanging in their school with people like these around. Religion is the king of dividing people up into cliques. Bullying and more is encouraged in the Bible. God actually commands that those who are non-believers should be put to death by stoning:
24:16 And he that blasphemeth the name of the LORD, he shall surely be put to death, and all the congregation shall certainly stone him: as well the stranger, as he that is born in the land, when he blasphemeth the name of the Lord, shall be put to death.
The founding fathers cared more about Enlightenment Principles than Religious Principles when it came to what sort of nation and government they envisioned:
Several Americans, especially Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson, played a major role in bringing Enlightenment ideas to the new world and in influencing British and French thinkers.[54]
The Americans closely followed English and Scottish political ideas, as well as some French thinkers such as Montesquieu.[55] As deists, they were influenced by ideas of John Toland (1670–1722) and Matthew Tindal (1656–1733).[56] During the Enlightenment there was a great emphasis upon liberty, democracy, republicanism and religious tolerance. Attempts to reconcile science and religion resulted in a widespread rejection of prophecy, miracle and revealed religion in preference for Deism – especially by Thomas Paine in The Age of Reason and by Thomas Jefferson in his short Jefferson Bible – from which all supernatural aspects were removed.
 "In God we trust" has nothing whatsoever to do with the Founding Fathers:
The phrase appears to have originated in "The Star-Spangled Banner", written during the War of 1812.
If only some people would read something other than the Bible they may not sound so ignorant when they try to express themselves.
