Your argument is dumb but sweet

Representative Steve Simon seems like a sweet man. In response to all this talk of changing Minnesota’s state constitution to prevent gays from marrying, he asks:

“How many gays people does God need to create before we ask ourselves whether or not God wants them around?”

See, it’s a nice sentiment, but if we start asking that dumb question, should we also ask how many virulent diseases or parasites does God need to “create” before we start asking ourselves if he’s trying to murder us? If he is responsible for everything, then what about the 25,000 people who starve to death every day? Does God want Africa wiped off the map?

Oh wait, I know the answer to these questions! God is just a figment of people’s imagination, just another way for people to have certainty where there is only ignorance. Get this God fellow out of your life and you’ll notice it gets a lot easier to do the right thing…

    He might be an atheist doing his best to relate to religious people to get them to make the right decision, in which case i applaud his beautiful appeal to sanity.

    What do you people have against relating to people of a completely different viewpoint?
