We atheists get accused of a lot of things. Usually it’s just the same tripe repeated over and over again ad nauseum. Every now and then though a religious group has an original thought. It’s a stupid thought, but it is original.
The religious group this time is the Free Market Foundation here in Texas. According to the Texas Freedom Network, this group sent out an email with the subject of “Atheists Attack in Texas” listing things we atheists here in Texas are allegedly doing. Somewhere in it was this accusation of sorts:
Another big issue is taxes. We’re all tired of our property taxes being raised each year without being allowed to vote on this issue. We are working hard to support legislation to cap raising appraisal taxes more than 5% unless approved by local citizens. These tax increases must stop!
What in bloody hell does that have to do with atheists? Beats the shit out of me, but as I said above, it is an original thought. Surely that’s worth a smile or two?
