"And it’s dangerous for our children to even know that your philosophy exists!"

This is an exchange between Illinois State Rep. Monique Davis, and atheist activist Rob Sherman, who was testifying before the Illinois General Assembly regarding a $1 million grant for the Pilgrim Baptist Church.

What's disappointing here is that an elected official, dependent on the goodwill of her voters, apparently feels there is no political risk (and perhaps some political benefit) to publicly berating an atheist simply for his beliefs.
