Letter to the Editor
Right wing commentator Ann Coulter is now saying that Obama isn’t a Muslim, he’s an Atheist, as if being an Atheist is a bad thing. As an Atheist myself I don’t have an invisible friend telling me to fly planes into buildings or to invade Iraq after fabricating false reasons for the invasion. So if Obama actually were an Atheist I wouldn’t have a problem with that.
However, it makes me wonder if Ann Coulter is an Atheist. If I believed in God I certainly would not be using the Lord’s name in vein to make a cheap political point. When I see those who call themselves Christians do bad things and use God’s name as a cover, one can only conclude that they don’t really believe in God. After all, if God is in your heart, transformed your life, and God actually means something to you, you simply would not abuse his name as a tool to foment hatred. Ann Coulter is admitting through her conduct that it she is the Atheist.
