Admitted atheist attacked outside gym
By Josh Hoke - The Sun News
A Myrtle Beach man and admitted atheist was attacked and robbed on Thursday night by a group of men who took offense to an anti-Christian phrase on his windshield.
The victim told police he was getting out of his car in the parking lot of the Crabtree Gym in Myrtle Beach about 8 p.m. when the men pulled up beside him and inquired about a derogatory statement on the back windshield of his car, according to an incident report.
The victim told police he wrote the statement as a "rebellious act against the National Day of Prayer," the report states.
When the victim argued with the suspects about the statement, they attacked him and robbed him of his wallet.
The victim, who was taken to South Strand Ambulatory Center, told police he was atheist, the report states.
