Everyone’s attention is locked on to Hillary Clinton’s missing emails. But what about Edward Susterich’s enquiry concerning the emails of Scott Walker, the Governor of Wisconsin? Walker claims God advises him on the major decisions in his life, so Susterich decided to get to the bottom of it. Under the Freedom of Information Act, he requested that Walker “please provide a copy/transcript of all communications with God, The Lord, Christ Jesus or any other form of deity.” (Freethought Today, March 2015 pg. 1, Vo. 32, No. 2.)
Within a matter of days, Susterich received a formal reply from Walker’s legal Counsel: Pursuant to the Public Records Law, we are responding to let you know that this office does not have records responsive to your request. That’s curious. Has some clerk been careless with the public record? Is there a cover-up? A conspiracy?
A conspiracy isn’t unthinkable. When Indiana rushed to pass a law to protect believers, where did that leave Atheists, the most hated group in America? (Blog June 12, 2012)) Naturally, Atheists are worried. Even CBS and NBC turns their back on them. When Ron Reagan, son of Ronald Reagan, 40th President of the United States, wanted to buy ad time to defend Atheists, those two media giants, bastion of free speech, refused to take his money. (Ibid pg. 3)
Edward Susterich shows us what happens to Atheists when they live unprotected in a society that hates them. We develop a sense of humor.
