This is written by an Atheist mom, who, for all I know may be a member of this site. I did not check, but I liked and agreed with everything she wrote. It is an opinion piece, of course.

Not a bad piece.  Maybe not as sophisticated in places, but it's honest and straightforward and calls a spade a spade.

 think she is a blogger not a reporter, but yes, simple and easy.

Some douchebag has already flagged the story as inappropriate.  That didn't take long.

"Some douchebag" can't deal with opposing opinions.  [sigh] Big surprise...

I was surprised it stayed up that long. What ever happened to freedom of speech? Dbags indeed. We are the minority, but still gaining ground.

Laars, we are gaining ground. Which scares the be-Jebus out of the tambourine banging, arm waving, bible thumpers out there.

Update: CNN hasn't flagged this iReport as inappropriate, but some community members have. This is a divisive topic, however it does not violate our Community Guidelines, so we ask people to please stop flagging it. We will continue to review the story as often as possible.

Also, this has over 45,000 likes on Facebook.  :)

I like the 45,000 likes!

I'm glad to see CNN essentially tell the christian extremist to essentially "shut your pie hole!".

Sadly, they don't hear that nearly enough.

Apparently the article resonated quite a bit, and also the bible-thumpers could not get it shut down.
