Idiocy this astounding deserves attention, and attention it shall receive in a new Atheist Revolution series, Idiot of the Week. Look for a new champion to be crowned each Saturday.

Let me give you another extremist view, 'In God We Trust.' Say that too loud in some parts of America and you will be shot. It's terrible.
Yep, terrible. Where exactly might these parts of America be, Mr. the Plumber?
