This topic is funny, almost like deja vu. I was thinking about something like this just this morning.
I was thinking about how Christians are free to stand outside of places like Planned Parenthood protesting, waving their signs and being generally annoying to the people who work there (who ignore them), needless to the bulk of the people seeking services there (like for pap smears, HIV testing, cancer testing, birth control pills/condoms etc. and somewhat guilt flinging to the few people who are going there for abortion services (including emergency contraception, the abortion pill, as well as clinical abortions.
Why don't non-believers stand outside of churches as people are entering and leaving waving their own signs. Well, I quickly realized it's because the atheists/agnostics have better things to do. Still.
I don't have an hour to listen to the entire video right now, but I'm sure there's a lot of tongue in cheek going on, as well as pointing out to people "really? you actually believe that?"
