retort to the "National Atheists' Day" joke

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Friendly Atheist lamented the Christian "joke" that April Fools' Day is really "National Atheists' Day" because atheists are fools, courtesy of--where else?--their Bible:

"The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good." (Psalms 14:1)

The ideal response may be to point out this contradictory Bible passage:

"But whomsoever shall say 'Thou fool' shall be in danger of hell fire." (Matthew 5:22)

update (11:25am):
I left the same retort at Ray Comfort's blog to let him know that the joke is on him, and--to his credit--he published my comment. Whether he or his readers will have any substantive response remains to be seen.
