Erick Erickson: Government shouldn't accommodate atheists, or even mention them.

CNN contributor Erick Erickson can't stand that there are atheists in the United States, expecting to be treated equally by the federal government. 

Erickson criticizes President Obama for calling for a "Moment of Silence" rather than a "Moment of Prayer," the way God intended it (pay no attention to Jesus urging prayers to be done in secret.)  Never mind that previous Republican presidents have done the same thing.  When Obama does it, it's because Obama is "of the left."

But the offensive part is when Erickson argues that the President shouldn't "accommodate atheists" even by calling for "prayer or reflection."  Why, in Obama's inaugural speech, he had the audacity to "mention" atheists. Can you imagine such a thing?

(No word on when Erickson plans to contact his U.S. Representative and ask him or her to begin the paperwork on repealing the First Amendment.)
