A Dangerous Idea

I present to you the following statement from Illinois Representative Monique Davis.
What you have to spew and spread is extremely dangerous . . . it's dangerous for our children to even know that your philosophy exists!

So what is this terrible philosophy that is dangerous for our children to even know of? If you said atheism you'd be right. Atheist activist Rob Sherman was testifying to the Illinois State Government regarding a botched grant of one million dollars that seems to have been for a church to rebuild after a fire but ended up going to a school that rents space from the church which got some extraordinary government assistance in getting the grant approved (Governor pardons the school director off the cuff, it very quickly becomes a registered non-profit, no questions are asked about significant owed taxes, etc).

The representatives diatribe went on a bit longer. You can read it or listen to it.

Why do believers think atheism is so dangerous? Why do they feel that those who don't believe are a threat to them and their beliefs?

It's nice to know something I do is dangerous to children. Although I have told a few students about explosive devices made from easily obtainable household items.
