Atheist threatens human rights complaint after public prayer

From here:

A Christian prayer by a city councillor at a City of Saskatoon volunteer appreciation dinner discriminated against non-Christians, says a volunteer who intends to complain to the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission.

Ashu Solo, a member of the city’s cultural diversity and race relations committee, was among the guests at the dinner Wednesday, where Coun. Randy Donauer said a blessing over the food in which he mentioned Jesus and ended with “amen.”

“It made me feel like a second-class citizen. It makes you feel excluded,” said Solo, who is an atheist.

What can one possibly say to an atheist who feels excluded by prayer? A number of things spring to mind, but I will confine myself to this: Good.

  1. Athiests are thin skinned folks who will harang-harass and harump anyone who doesn’t agree. They are violating my human rights by telling me I should be denying my beliefs and forcing friviolous litigation at eventually my expense.

  2. I reckon he’d be more likely to be an anti-theist.
    Surely, to an atheist, prayers of any kind are just meaningless words. This bloke finds them offensive to his beliefs or lack thereof.
