The United States Senator from New Jersey, Cory Booker, gave homage to Jon Stewart in a tweet yesterday and found himself the recipient of backlash from a teavangelical. Check it out!
Going completely against the grain of what most politicians have done of late and merely ignoring the slight against atheists, the most maligned group in the United States, Cory Booker responded to @magnoliaflower reprimanding him for his ignorance.
It’s awesome to see a REAL Christian standing up for the religious rights of others, especially atheists. It was a welcome change of politics and was even noted by Amanda Knief, the Managing Director at American Atheists who happens to be a resident of New Jersey and constituent of Senator Booker’s.
