Summary

On this week's show we provide an update to the Bay County Sheriff and the In God We trust bumper stickers. We also revisit the Detroit unveiling of the Baphomet Statues. Some good news on GMOs, your feedback and of course the Mr. Potter Award. The statement from Elias about In God We Trust A group consisting of various religious and irreligious belief systems (Muslim, Jewish, Agnostic, Atheist, Pagan, etc.) gathered to protest the Sheriff of Bay County's decision to place "In god we trust" stickers on our squad cars. We protested this for various reasons: First among them is that this is an obviously dangerous place to promote religious texts as it detracts from the impartial nature of law enforcement that is so vital to the safety of minorities. When government authorities show partiality toward a specific group of within its community it has, historically, nearly always ended poorly for the minorities not represented. Second, it is in clear violation of the separation of church and state. (Regardless of the semantic sleight of hand being thrown around in today's court systems.) Third, equal representation of constitutents is a necessity for all government organizations if continuity of equality is to be ensured. Realistically, any law enforcement agency should only be representing the populous in matters of law to ensure sensible policy decisions. Fourth, law enforcement offices are public institutions that should never be used for religious or political agendas. While I am not an official spokesperson for any group, I am affiliated with Atheists of Bay County. The statement made here is by no means representative of every member's opinion. The Baphomet contract I agree that by signing this document under any name, given or adopted, actual or pseudonymous, I am hereby avowing my soul to Satan (aka Abbadon, aka Lucifer, aka Beelzebub, aka The Antichrist). I do so knowing that He (aka The Fallen One, aka The Father of Lies) or any of His representatives may choose to collect my eternal soul at any time, with or without notice. I understand that my signature or mark representing any name, real or made up, upon these papers constitutes a lasting and eternal contract, and that there will be no further negotiations on the matter of my eternal soul.
