David Silverman is the president of American Atheists and is a person who was born to wear the label of ‘militant atheist’. CPAC is the Conservative Political Action Conference, an annual gathering of some of the most extreme conservatives in the country, many of whom are extremely religious. Samantha Bee sent one of her producers to see what happened when Silverman attended CPAC three weeks ago.
I liked the atheist who responded to someone telling him “I’ll pray for you”. Religious people often say that to non-believers and I find it annoying but had no real comeback that did not seem rude. This atheist replied “I’ll think for you”. Variations such as “”I’ll reason for you” would work too.
