I posted this yesterday on my Facebook page**; however I decided to post it here as well, in its entirety. I suspect that there are fellow atheists who find this to be an especially frustrating time because of the continuing fight over sanctioned prayer at high school graduations. At a minimum you may find yourself irritated and disgusted with this whole, ongoing, mess - such as the story of the Valedictorian in Pickens County, SC.

As usual, this idea is proposed by the whiny religious right (mainly conservative Christians).
Sometimes they will…

So many words I wish to say
And yet, the moment I try,
You scream in pain and baffle me
With the rage in your eye.
I guess I know the rule now,
