Rockford, Il – (ProLifeCorner.com) – 9-28-2012 – by Staff – Militant Atheists Demand Free Speech As Long As You Agree With Them. We have two examples of what the militant atheists are doing to suppress the Judeo-Christian point of view. Bob Whalen recently wrote an excellent letter to the editor of the Rockford Register Star. We found it interesting that many of the responses to his letter were filled with hate and anti-Christian rhetoric. The danger we see is that these same people will not be satisfied until they have complete control of our government, our courts, our churches, and our very lives. Continue reading
