G is for Goldman

Getting Shirty
Getting Shirty: The Millstone of Reason: Dare to Wear It!

I have mentioned Emma Goldman before (The Artful Atheist magazine); she is an excellent choice for the G in the Atheist Alphabet. From the Emma Goldman-Wikiquote page:

Ladies and gentlemen, I came here to avoid as much as possible treading on your corns. I had intended to deal only with the basic issue of economics that dictates our lives from the cradle to the grave, regardless of our religion or moral beliefs. I see now that it was a mistake. If one enters a battle, he cannot be squeamish about a few corns. Here, then, are my answers: I do not believe in God, because I believe in man. Whatever his mistakes, man has for thousands of years past been working to undo the botched job your God has made.

I wonder if such a t-shirt would be controversial?
