Shirley You Remember

April 18, 2006 | 2 Comments

Remember that old network sitcom about the wild and crazy atheist Texas prison worker who used her captive, god-fearing audience as part of an experiment in coming out of the godless closet? Actually, it was just a blog called “Atheist Exposed.” I wrote about it here but it was subsequently deleted by its author, Shirley Setterbo, who moved on to an office job within the correctional system.

Fortunately, she’s back now with a new blog, AtheistExposed2, which chronicles her adventures in the new work habitat. Atheism always simmering in the back of her mind, she lies in wait for some unsuspecting colleague to start with the God-talk. The first victim was one of her supervisors, who fell into her trap like this:

He loves to stir the pot, and he always saying the most obnoxious and outrageous things he can think up. So, I usually give him a taste of his own medicine, and I tried to think of something hateful to say, in fun of course. I asked him, “So who’s life are busy destroying now”? He fakes being offended, and with an evil grin asks me if I really think of him so poorly. I reply, that I don’t think poorly of him, I just accept him as he is, very evil. He retorts, “Surely you don’t honestly believe I’m evil.” I shrug my shoulders, “Okay, maybe not evil, but definitely naughty.” He laughs and asks me if he has at least a chance of not burning in hell.

As Shirley says, “CA-CHING.” Read what happened next here, and go back from time to time to egg her on in the comments.

    I don’t like her too much. She makes atheism sound like it’s a bad thing.
