Soup's off: Atheists banned

(Photo by Donovan Govan)
It has been said that too many cooks spoil the broth - but this saying has never really clarified whether these cooks were atheists or not.

That type of fine-tooth discrimination was instead left to those who believe that atheists have no business helping to cook soup for the hungry.

Such was recently the case in South Carolina when members of the group Upstate Atheists attempted to volunteer at the Spartanburg Soup Kitchen.

According to MSN Now, the "executive soup kitchen director" (now that's a mouthful of a  title that probably wouldn't even fit on a soup spoon) threatened to resign her job if the atheists were (gasp) allowed to help.

She made her stance perfectly clear with these fightin' words:  Do they [atheists] think that our guests are
so ignorant that they don't know what an atheist is?  Why are they targeting us?

Which absolutely begs the question:  Who's really targeting whom?
