Introducing the new atheist martyr... Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus
Be still my achey-breaky heart, we have a new atheist heroine, in the, ahem, divine form of Southern-fried popstril and film starlet Miley Cyrus aka Hannah Montana. According to this report she has enraged "the haters and her fans" alike by tweeting a photo of the theoretical physicist and prominent atheist Lawrence Krauss, alongside the following quote:
"Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than the atoms in your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about the universe.

You are all stardust.

You couldn't be here if stars hadn't exploded. Because the elements (the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen and all the things that matter for evolution) weren't created at the beginning of time. They were created in stars. So forget Jesus. Stars died so you could live."
Miley apparently thought this sentiment was "beautiful" thus revealing herself to be, in the eyes of her public, Satan and Richard Dawkins rolled into one. A torrent of hate from the haters followed. “You seriously believe that crap?" asked one Twitter follower. "It’s so ridiculously stupid. Go to hell.” “So are you no longer a Christian?" asked another "Forget Jesus??? Seriously? What has happened to you out there in the famous world? What????”

As her outraged fan highlights, Miley has a lot of questions to answer.
