Florida Atheists Attorney Arrested by State

The persecution of EllenBeth Wachs, a retired attorney and the legal coordinator for Atheists of Florida, is a disgrace to all Floridians. Christians everywhere should be ashamed of how their fellow Christians in Florida are stomping on the United States Constitution and on a fellow American citizen's rights.

Atheists of Florida was doing what most atheist and secular organizations have to do these days: fighting the rising tide of government-sponsored religion. They've been playing a whack-a-mole game with the City of Lakeland's mandatory prayer that was held before each city council meeting. First Lakeland added a rabbi to the mix to prove they were inclusive, not just Christian. When Atheists of Florida got that thrown out, the city passed a new law giving Christians a few minutes before the "official" meeting to pray so that it looked like it wasn't an official part of the city council meeting. Everyone saw through that ruse too, and another lawsuit was filed.

So what did Lakeland do next? They arrested EllenBeth Wachs on felony charges of impersonating an attorney!

But that's not all.
On March 3, over a dozen sheriff’s deputies and other law enforcement officials, many garbed in SWAT style para-military gear, descended on her home in unmarked vehicles, arrested Ms. Wachs, and searched her home. Two bearded officials in SWAT gear held her two retail employees at gunpoint and for several hours unidentified agents proceeded to systematically tear apart her house, including searching her cars and employees’ cars and belongings. Agents seized Wachs’ personal and business computers, cell phone, documents and other items.
And guess what? It turns out that the arrest affidavit was signed by one of the defendants in Ms. Wells' prayer lawsuit. Big surprise.

It's a ridiculous charge. EllenBeth is a retired attorney (she practiced in Pennsylvania). The "evidence" of her crime is that she signed her name "Esq." and said things like, "We'll sue you." In meetings she claimed to be "representing" Atheists of Florida as a spokesperson, not an attorney. She didn't say "I'm their attorney." She never took a dime for her services. Everything she said was true and was something any non-attorney citizen might have said.

So if I put "Esq." after my name, I'm guilty of a felony? That seems to be the entire case that Florida has against Ms. Wachs. Oh, wait ... I forgot – she's an atheist. Throw her in jail!

Anyone who takes our freedom of speech and freedom of religion for granted needs to think again. We have to fight a constant battle against religious people who think this is their country. These people think that atheists, agnostics, and probably Jews and Muslims are second-class citizens in a Christian nation, tolerated but not really welcome. Their un-American beliefs are the very thing the Founding Fathers were afraid of when they wrote that Congress shall make no law respecting religion.
Comment by Adriana on April 1, 2011 at 3:09pm

I disagree, because freedom of speech in America is not under assail, there is no need to defend the lunatic pastor in my opinion, nobody is suing him or anything. It is sufficient if they condemn acts of terrorism in response to the pastor's lunacy. I do not subscribe to the same philosophy as Harris. The Christians' freedom of speech in America is not under attack, although they cry wolf all the time, like their freedom of speech is violated if some school principal is not allow to initiate a prayer at school.

I will defend free speech and I have done so by being a card carrying member of the ACLU for decades. And if the pastor is sued, I'll be glad if the ACLU defends him.

Comment by Don on April 1, 2011 at 3:01pm

I would be interested to know whether those determinedly moderate believers, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, will show their love for their country by defending the freedom of Americans to perform acts of symbolic speech, no matter how much they may decry them and the hatred underlying them. 

Harris has always taken a hard line on this point.  It was one of his central themes in THE END OF FAITH, that moderate believers give cover and protection to the fundamentalists. 

Comment by Adriana on April 1, 2011 at 2:51pm

I was referring to this comment of Harris:

 

Pastor Jones and the members of his tiny congregation in Gainesville appear to be religious crackpots of the first order, but anyone tempted to condemn them for provoking this violence has lost the plot.

 

And to fact that once again he attacks Muslim moderates, although he does not show that Muslim moderates indeed are NOT condemning what happened.

 

What about these guys? They have a mosque not too far from the hospital where I take my therapy dog in Queens.

Comment by Adriana on April 1, 2011 at 2:45pm

I think Sam Harris once again engages in Islamophobia and misses the point. The right question to be asked is not if the demented pastor or anyone else has the right to burn the Koran, but whether at this moment in history, it is wise to do that.

I've never been a big fan of Harris, he comes across as immature to me, honestly.

Comment by Don on April 1, 2011 at 2:40pm

 On his blog today, Sam Harris asks, "Do we have the right to burn the Koran?"

The Florida pastor definitively should be blamed for this, not sure about %, but his actions were stupid, careless, reckless and absolutely thoughtless. What was his point anyway?
Comment by Don on April 1, 2011 at 11:54am
Yep, they're all to blame in their hatred and abject ignorance.
Comment by Doone on April 1, 2011 at 11:47am
The fathead in Florida also deserves some blame but 99.99 percent goes to the actual killers.
