Re: the large “In God We Trust” display in Wentzville, MO — When the mayor, aldermen, and other Wentzville residents who want a Christian theocracy try to make this issue about me and what a “radical leftist atheist outsider” they think I am, it doesn’t faze me. The facts are on our side. It’s not about me. It never was. It’s about the U.S. Constitution and the founding of this nation, which was for a government that remains neutral, never advancing or endorsing religion.
I am used to this strategy of theirs. Thrive (fake clinics) and their fake “Best Choice” program did the exact same thing last year. Thrive’s “Best Choice” was in 20 St. Louis area public school districts teaching medically inaccurate, shame-based, fear-based abstinence-only fake sex ed propaganda. They attacked me and the other parents & residents who spoke up against them. They frequently tried to make it all about me and what a “radical” I am. But now Thrive is only in 4 public school districts, instead of 20.
The facts were on our side then, and they’re on our side now. They can try to make this about me and attack me all the want. It is a distraction from the real issue, which they don’t want to talk about. This is about the separation of church and state and real religious freedom, which includes freedom FROM religion.
