Atheists Never Make The News For Beating Their Kids

Strange, isn't it? How you never hear about terrible atheists abusing their kids for not doing well in school or for believing in god, or really anything for that matter. Almost makes you wonder, why is that?

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. (AP) -- A Pennsylvania woman who beat and tried to strangle her daughter for incorrectly reciting Bible verses has been sentenced to prison.

Forty-one-year-old Rhonda Shoffner was sentenced Wednesday to 2½ to five years in prison after pleading guilty to charges including aggravated assault of her daughter, who was younger than 13.

Police say the girl was forced to kneel on the bathroom floor at Shoffner's Middletown home and repeat Bible verses. They say Shoffner slammed her head into the wall each time she made a mistake. They say Shoffner also told the child she was going to kill her and attempted to strangle her.

Police say the girl fought off Shoffner, who told her to leave and never return. The girl called her father, who drove her to a police station.

It's funny how religious zealots like to equate their intensity of faith with actual "goodness". Of course I define "goodness" not as "killing the infidel/gay/colored person", so maybe that's where I'm going wrong, but rather I like to think of "goodness" as respecting others, letting them live their lives as they choose and not shoving my views in their face (if you're reading this then remember, you CHOSE to click the link and come here, you're also free to leave at any time.)

Organized religion is just a vehicle for abuse, dominance and greed.

Oh and Rhonda? You're going to hell, mmm'kay? Bye.
