Florida Pastor Mike Stahl wants a national registry of known atheists, like a sex offender registry. Or, at least he did, about a year ago when he blogged his random thoughts on the matter. He thinks the names and addresses of Atheists need to be published so people can do what with the information? Stare them down in the street or accost them with a Bible?
I suppose someone should send the Pastor a copy of the Bill of Rights. He also needs to be given some instruction on the difference between an atheist and a terrorist cell, the KKK, skinheads, sex offenders, ex-cons, and radical Islamists. Would someone tell me where these people come from? I guess he’s not as bad as the Westboro Baptist Church loons.
Pastor Stahl writes: Brothers and Sisters , I have been seriously considering forming a ( Christian ) grassroots type of organization to be named “The Christian National Registry of Atheists” or something similar . I mean , think about it . There are already National Registrys for convicted sex offenders , ex-convicts , terrorist cells , hate groups like the KKK , skinheads , radical Islamists , etc..
This type of “National Registry” would merely be for information purposes . To inform the public of KNOWN ( i.e., self-admitted) atheists . For example , let’s say you live in Colorado Springs , Colorado , you could simply scroll down ( from the I-Net site /Blog ) I would have , to the State of Colorado , and then when you see “Colorado Springs” , you will see the names of all the self-admitted atheist(s) who live there ( e.g., if an atheist’s name happened to be “Phil Small” ) . The individual’s physical address , and other known personal information would NOT be disclosed ( though , perhaps a photo could be ).
