Sarah Palin To Angry Atheists: No More Double Standards Here In America!
Speaking at Liberty University, Sarah Palin was asked to address of the issues that atheists have regarding the display of nativity in public places. Palin cited what Thomas Jefferson would agree with people who want to “abort Christ from Christmas.”
“Thomas Jefferson today, he would recognize those who would want to try to ignore that Jesus is the reason for the season, those who would want to try to abort Christ from Christmas. He would recognize, for the most part, these are angry atheists armed with an attorney. They are not the majority of Americans,” said Palin.
She pointed out and said that Jefferson would recognize that there is a double standard. “They rightly so, have a voice, but we have a voice too, and we shouldn’t be afraid to stand up and let it be heard,” said Palin. She continued, “What the voice needs to say, the message needs to be received by these angry atheists is, no more double standards here in America.
Palin added that the angry atheists would sue over the display of nativity and would even say that it would hurt them physically and distress them mentally. She defended Christians saying that they get offended too when Jesus is stripped away as the reason for celebrating the season.
Palin said Jefferson would stand up if he recognizes the double standards and would not allow people to tell him to “sit down and shut up.”
