Today on Fox News' O'Reilly Factor, guest host Laura Ingraham interviewed former Methodist pastor, now turned Atheist, Teresa McBain, who is now the Public Relations Director for American Atheists.
Ms. McBain was invited to speak about the recent lawsuit by American Atheists against the metal cross that has been placed in the World trade Center Memorial (see my blog post here on that).
It seems Ms. McBain was trying to "clear up" the reasons that AA filed the suit. It wasn't because their representatives find the cross a horrible symbol of death (I guess that was just baloney, right?), it's now because not all denominations and faiths are equally represented in the memorial.
Ms. McBain cited that one of the plaintiffs in the suit was upset to the point of severe mental trauma because a Lutheran Cross is not featured in the memorial. Severe mental trauma?
The cross that was chosen is PLAIN and non-denominational. That's just not good and general enough for American Atheists, who have already demonstrated their hatred for this symbol of Christianity, regardless.
Ms. McBain also cited a lack of Jewish symbols, which in fact, is wrong: there are Jewish artifacts from victims that will be displayed. Perhaps she didn't have time to properly prepare for her walk-back appearance on Fox.
This appearance by Teresa McBain is just more proof of the intellectual dishonesty that makes up the core of the American Atheists organization.
Next time, their people should do better show-prep before they make themselves and AA look silly on the news.
