Governor Scott Walker Owes his State thousands of Bible Tweets

"An atheist group is demanding that Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) remove a Bible verse posted to his social media accounts Sunday, calling it “improper” for a politician to promote personal religious views using “the machinery of the state.” 

The Freedom From Religion Foundation wrote a letter to Walker asking him to delete the message, which read simply, “Philippians 4:13,” from his official Facebook and Twitter accounts. This quote by Freedom From Religion Foundation's Dan Barker 

"“We don’t want to limit his religious freedom either, but he represents all of us,” said Barker, who lives in Wisconsin." 

If Barker is admitting that Walker represents all who live in Wisconsin, then he should realize the other 5,479 (at last count) tweets were all for him. If Barker really believes what he says then Walker probably owes Christians in the state of Wisconsin another 2 or 3 thousand tweets, since Walker has done so many that have no religious connotation attached. 

I suspect, though, as other religious hate groups like the Freedom From Religion Foundation, that they only want all public officials to bow only to them. But, then again, that would make them a religion and then they would have to hate themselves, too.
