Idiot of the Week: Chrissy Saterfield

"Who the hell is Chrissy Saterfield?" you may ask. She is a columnist for lunatic fringe website WorldNetDaily (i.e., WorldNutDaily). She is the one who is getting attention for applauding the recent vandalism of the billboard erected in North Carolina by the North Carolina Secular Association.

Ed Brayton (Dispatches From the Culture Wars) quotes Saterfield as follows:
Never would I encourage vandalism, but in this case I think I'll let it slide.
She'll "let it slide" because it is okay to vandalize something with which she disagrees. And she certainly disagrees with the pledge of allegiance.
It's nice to know that I am not alone in my beliefs and that some people are still willing to stand on the right side of truth.
Ah yes, it must be nice to know that people are ready and willing to break the law by defacing property simply because of a message with which you disagree. But here's the real kicker:
Atheists have been vandalizing my beliefs for years, so it's about time the shoe was on the other foot.
Vandalizing your beliefs? How exactly? How can beliefs be vandalized? Are atheists performing unauthorized brain surgery while you sleep, or do you imply mean that atheists have criticized your beliefs? Yeah, that's what I thought. Criticism is not illegal, unlike say, vandalism. I thought the far right was supposed to be all about law and order.

If you find Saterfield's stupidity more than a little frustrating, go read Ed Brayton's entire post. He rips her to shreds quite nicely.
