Atheists Claim ‘Symptoms’ When They See the Cross

According to a lawsuit filed in New York by American Atheists Inc., atheists suffer “debilitating symptoms” of various kinds when they behold any Christian religious symbol–especially the Cross. These include fierce headaches, shortness of breath, sleepless nights, and the heeby-jeebies, their lawyer told the court. If you wonder why so many people despise lawyers, this should give you a clue.

The suit seeks the only remedy acceptable to the plaintiffs–the forcible removal from public view of all Christian symbols.  All in the name of tolerance, of course.

Now, let’s see… Who else do we know of who has such powerful negative reactions to seeing the cross? Hmmm… (Jeopardy music in the background)…

Oh, wait! I know! I know!

Dracula has that kind of reaction to the cross.

It is obvious that the plaintiffs in this case are vampires. *sigh* Where’s Peter Cushing when you need him?

  1. Well said. How about if the “afflicted” get a clue from all these symptoms. Instead, they choose to try to “mask” the symptoms while ignoring the
    soul sickness that brings them on? tsk tsk, such willful blindness.

    1. I’m pretty sure this is not the first time they’ve tried this kind of ridiculous claim in a court of law, but I don’t have a citation handy. Something about some atheist dork in the Midwest who told the judge he couldn’t sleep because there was a cross in a county park two miles from his home. If I were the judge, I woulda found him a place to sleep, all right!

  2. Maybe they fear that if they are brought into or near the Light of the Son, that they might melt, like Christopher Lee did in the movie. 😉

  3. The folks in Rome, around 57 A.D., heard about these kinds of people when a lawyer (!) from the town of Tarsus by the name of Paul, wrote them a letter. He minced no words and they stand nearly 2000 years later.-as all of his words in that letter still stand. Sad commentary on men who, being “wise”, show what foolishness is bound up in the hearts of grown men.

    1. Want to annoy an atheist? Ask him what it is that he does believe in. And if he says “reason” or something like that, laugh uproariously.

  4. The absurdity is astonishing. What instantly came to mind was the scene from The Wizard Of Oz where the wicked witch call out – I’m melting! I’m melting! lol!
