Atheists Not Entitled to Rights in Illinois

Via Mike of the OBloggers list comes this scary story of an Illinois state representative telling a constituent he had no right to his views on the propriety of public funding of a baptist church because he's an atheist. Apparently in Illinois it's not "no taxation without representation", but "no representation without belief in some supernatural contradiction". We're seeing more and more of this attitude in politics, so it's no wonder ARI chose Reason vs. Faith as the topic for their first set of video clips.
