His death was confirmed by Roy Abraham Varghese, with whom he wrote “There Is a God: How the World’s Most Notorious Atheist Changed His Mind,” published in 2007.

    • Leftists and atheists are not always in the same grouping but the evangelical atheists and libtard factions have much in common generally speaking.

      Both groups tend to be highly emotional and angry at any perceived authority figures.Remember how they foamed at the mouth about President Bush ?

      Barry Soetoro hasn't reversed any of the policies that they were angry about:

      Not GITMO,not FISA,not the Afghanistan or Iraq Wars...
