This was published as a letter in a US newspaper "Atheists, get the hell out of America! ...Atheists have caused the ruin of this great nation by taking prayer out of our schools and being able to practice what can only be called evil. I don’t care if they have never committed a crime, atheists are the reason crime is rampant.” scan of full letter http://www.linkinn.com/userfiles/Image/dear-articles-2.jpg The newspaper later found out they' been hoaxed http://peninsulaclarion.com/stories/030907/oped_0309ope001.shtml

Ya know, there are probably people that actually feel that way. It takes all kinds.

I know - I saw it being discussed on an UK left wing mostly secular or non Christian website, that thought it was genuine example of how bad the Us Christian far right can get

Hehehe what a stupid letter to publish. I bet it only got published for its attention seeking tone and probably would end up in tv and internet, and create even more publicity about the paper itself as well. The letter doesnt do anything but rant at ppl, and as a hoax... it just simply fails. I wouldnt even spend 5 minutes on reading anything related to it as I dont see the point. It was created to get a fight going and it probably succeeded pretty well :D
