Man, don't be that guy.
A MILITANT atheist who put grossly offensive religious images in a prayer room at Liverpool's John Lennon airport was hit with a five-year ASBO.
Taylor, of Salford, Greater Manchester, admitted leaving the pictures, which depicted figures from Christianity and Islam, often in sexual poses, in the airport’s multi-faith room on three separate occasions. But the jobless 59-year-old, who labelled himself a militant atheist, said he was simply practising his own religion of “reason and rationality” and was hoping to convert people.
He told jurors he left the items in the room in memory of “his hero” John Lennon. But a jury of 10 women and two men, who all swore their oath on the Bible, rejected his defence. They took just 15 minutes to rule he had left the religious offence material with the intention of causing alarm or distress.
For crying out loud- just because they do it, doesn't mean we should. I like to think a philosophy that emphasizes "reason and rationality" would discourage that sort of nonsense but, hell, I guess the crotch punch is just too easy to pass up.
I'm Drek, I'm an atheist, and I do NOT approve of this approach to recruitment. That is all.
