Florida atheist allegedly attacks roommate with butter knife for looking like Jesus; demands atheist attorney

A Florida atheist accused of attacking his roommate with a butter knife for resembling Jesus is requesting he be represented by an atheist attorney.

Gustav Potthoff, 51, reportedly requested on Tuesday that he be granted an atheist attorney to defend him as he faces aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charges. The accused told a judge in Orange County that he should be allowed to have an atheist attorney because “it’s just my human rights and everything else.”

“I’m allowed to be with someone of my own kind,” he added.
