Atheist opened door to unwise policies

Madalyn Murray O’Hair once stated that God was sadistic, brutal and a representation of hatred.

William Murray said of his mother, “I was born into a home of near constant rage and violence. As a result of my mother’s constant angry outbursts, she could not hold down a job. She, my brother and I, lived with her parents and my unmarried uncle. My grandfather had never filed an income tax return and most of what he did do during his life was illegal or ill advised. My grandmother read Tarot cards and sent out demons by burning human hair. My uncle kept hoards of pornography in his room and my mother filled the house with statues of mating animals which she worshipped. My mother was an evil person ... Not for removing prayer from America’s schools ... No ... She was just evil. ...”

The dismembered bodies of Madalyn Murray O’Hair, Jon Murray and Robin Murray were found in January of 2000 at Camp Wood, Texas. One of the killers, David Waters, led the authorities to the site.

Even so, is Madalyn Murray O’Hair really to blame for removing prayer out of schools? I think not. The left-wing Court of the day wanted prayer out of schools and they were just waiting for a case to change America. Ultimately, the blame goes to the Court and an apathetic nation for allowing it to be done.

In essence, this case opened the door for many other “unwise” policies we have today.
