Unfair Unbalanced Bill O'Reilly

Bill O’Reilly blames atheism for shooting of WDBJ journalists:
The United States is in a free fall. Why? People just aren’t praying as hard as they used to. This is the message of Fox News mouth piece Bill O’Reilly. And why not? Stoking fear and superstition makes for good ratings. But in examining the history of the United States, are we really that bad off these days?

Recently Bill shamelessly lied about the tragic murder of reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward by former employee of WDBJ-TV Vester Lee Flanagan. He exploited this tragedy to feed on the ignorance and bigotry of the religious right. He put the blame on a so called decline of spirituality, the rise of those boogeymen evil doers known as “Secular Progressives.”

But the killer Flanagan was a Jehovah’s Witness.
Religious and non-religious alike have done horrible things in the history of mankind. Secularism and individual liberties are the best protection from such violence. No special privileges and no persecution based on religious beliefs. No dictator allowed, whether religious or not. No man to be worshiped, whether a king or a cleric. Freedom of press, freedom of speech, no one is above criticism.
