Submission + - CNN's Hate-Newscasts Against Atheists

GenKreton writes: CNN has been airing "newscasts" that blatantly attack atheists. The panel interviewed includes no atheists. Some memorable quotes include: "they should just shut up," "They are on the attack. It's obnoxious and they do need to shut up..." and "I think they need to shut up about crying wolf all the time and saying that they're being imposed upon. A particular high point in their anti-atheist banter is hit with comments such as "They don't have a good — marketing. If they had hallmark cards, maybe they wouldn't feel so left out."
