Atheist Group to Hand Out Hate Literature at Schools

Atheism is the “non-belief” that is willing to admit to being a religion only when it is politically convenient.

Case in point: The Orange County, Florida, school district apparently invites outside organizations to leave faith-based materials on a table at schools for any students who want them.

A local atheist group called Central Florida Freethought, which is affiliated with the Freedom From Religion Foundation, wants to deposit some of its own reading materials, including a booklet titled “An X-rated Book: Sex and Obscenity in the Bible,” to counteract Christian materials from local churches.

If atheism were really a “nonbelief,” then atheists wouldn’t care so much what Christians were up to because they wouldn’t have any religious sensibilities to offend. But since Christianity challenges their own feelings of religious superiority, atheist activists are compelled to wage war, even to the point of taking advantage of a policy about “faith-based” materials.

I don’t think this is a great policy to begin with, but if the school district wants to allow faith-based materials to be distributed in schools, setting up a table for use by all groups seems a reasonably fair way to go about it. Rules prohibit groups’ representatives from having contact with students.

And if the atheist group wanted to simply put out some “rah-rah-atheism” type of materials, it wouldn’t bother me. Promote away.

But as is typical for atheist activists, particularly those connected in any way to the Freedom From Religion Foundation, the materials in question don’t just promote their own beliefs, but they have to tear down the beliefs of Christians and Jews.

A booklet titled “An X-rated Book” that purports to be about the Bible is obviously not going to focus on positive aspects of atheism, but it will paint Christians and Jews as stupid, ignorant, misogynistic and backwards.

Why not just put out “Mein Kampf” or “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” for the kiddies while you’re at it?

It’s hate speech, pure and simple, and it has no place in schools.

    In the US, there is no legal distinction between “hate speech” and any other kind of speech; hate speech simply means speech the hearer doesn’t like. And if Christians get to hand out material that contains sentences like “The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.””, atheists get to hand out material criticizing Christians.

    The ignorance and violence being voiced by commentors here,most who seem to profess some sort of religious belief is down right scary, seems to follow the ingnorance of the original article

    Just a clarification,even though is seems it is a waste,athieism means a person doesn’t believe in the supernatural, gods, goddess’ ghosts etc. It’s not an alternate religion, it’s not an organization,and just like the rest of life, athiests can be just as obnoxious as everybody else.

      You are wrong! Can you prove there is no God, no you can’t, just like I can’t prove there is a God, it is based on faith!
      And they are trying to grow their numbers by proselytizing!
      Atheist organizations accept donations!
      Sounds like a religion to me, A FALSE ONE AT THAT!

      • John Boen

        Sure you can. All you need to do is take an important claim about a god, made by the followers of this god, and demonstrate that it is false.

        For example: Zeus lives atop Mt. Olympus.

        We know that he does not, so the Zeus of tradition does not exist.

        Similarly, God does not live in the clouds, there was no biblical flood, the earth is much more than 6000 years old, humans were not created, etc. The tradition of God is not true, so the God of this tradition does not exist.

  • Jack Ill

    I can’t help but be amused by the reaction to this. No problem handing out the christian texts that include rape, incest, slavery, murder, violence, genocide, and more, all either condoned or commanded by their god, yet outrage over a pamphlet highlighting these sections? The pamphlet in question is really no more than a study guide for the bible, but since it says atheist on the cover, bring out the torches and pitchforks! Wouldn’t want the children to actually read what’s in those bibles, now would we?

    • Clint

      It is more than likely a “focused” study guide to denigrate Christianity, Jewish religion and the Holy Bible. The Bible contains many stories showing the depravity of man. On that I’m sure you will agree. The Bible is one that requires more than a simple read through to be able to unbderstand it. God is good, man is not. Find God through Jesus Christ.

      • Jack Ill

        I fail to see how highlighting the portions of the bible that are normally glossed over by christian studies is a bad thing. While there are plenty of instances of man’s depravity in the bible, there are plenty of examples of the immorality of the christian god in there, too. Surely no moral person would condone slavery, much less beating a slave. That was no more or less moral then than it is now. cultural differences don’t matter one whit. Any rational being knows that slavery is wrong. Yet, the bible, god’s holy word, both commands people to enslave others, lays out the rules for such a heinous practice, and lays out the ground rules for beating one’s slaves. To denigrate any of the Abrahamic religions, no one needs a study guide. They only need to read their texts closely.

          You are taking information out of context. You have no idea what you are talking about. What you are trying to point out was needed at that time; not since the Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross and fulfilled the Law. Did you also read how they were to be treated as well?
          Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.
          II Pet 3:9 -The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance (change of mind towards Him).
          Be very careful…
          Ps 76:10a For the wrath of man shall praise You; God uses the wrath of man to praise Him: Those with malcontent to do His will.

      • The_Countess

        “The Bible contains many stories showing the depravity of man. On that I’m sure you will agree.”

        actually its mostly on the depravity of god. (both the bible and the pamphlets.)

        “God is good”
        really? because i cant find that in the bible at all. punishment for doing something wrong before god has given man the ability to know right from wrong.. and not just the man committing it, no who WHOLE human race is it suffer for it. ever human being held responsible for the actions of that 1 man.
        is that good? is that just? well not in my book.
        and if god can’t even live up to my modest morals how can you call him good? how can you worship him?

        • TXLady706 TXLady706

          G-d is never pronounced GOOD. G-d is JUST. That’s good. But not in the way that is sugar plumbs and gum drops. G-d IS good, because g-d is just. However, THAT’s really NOT the point of the Bible. The point of the Bible is to give you a guidebook for living a life in a community of man so as to live peacefully and as best one can. The Bible is not written to GLORIFY g-d. G-d doesn’t need YOUR approval. The book is for man. The path to happiness. But in order to understand that, one must understand that there are different failings of man. The book explains what these things are and why they came about and then how to remedy situations. You see, most times, man can’t help where he is on his journey though life, so the book is a guide. If you can see it from that perspective, then you will come closer to understanding the “goodness” in it and about it.

        • The_Countess

          “because g-d is just.”

          how is he just if he lets some Christians be born in the abject poverty of sub Saharan Africa and others in the excesses and abundance of the US? how is that just?

          And that’s before we consider he lets others be born in countries were they will hardly ever hear about jesus and are therefore almost certainly going to hell. he knows that (he knows us before we are born) but lets them be born anyway knowing they are going to hell.

          “The point of the Bible is to give you a guidebook for living a life in a
          community of man so as to live peacefully and as best one can.”

          and in what way does condoning slavery contribute to this? Only leading his chosen people out of slavery, but thinking its a-ok for everyone else. you aren’t the chosen people, so its oke for you to be a slave according to your bible.

          “The Bible is not written to GLORIFY g-d. G-d doesn’t need YOUR approval.”

          have you read the 10 commandments? in particular the first 3 or 4 depending on the version you use.

        • mallen11

          Every person born on earth has the opportunity to know the God of the Bible; there is no excuse…

        • The_Countess

          if he made it so clear why does 2/3 of the world not believe it and the remaining 1/3 are deeply divided on his will and nature.

          and how exactly does, say, a girl born in the rainforests of south America, never having come in contact with a outside get to know your Christian god? will god send her to hell just for being born in the rainforest’s?

        • mallen11

          I have already answered your first question.

          If anyone, anywhere in the world has even one spark of positive volition; seeking a “higher being” but not knowing what, God will provide the gospel. It already has been done in the rainforests. Missionaries have taken the gospel of salvation to them and some have believed and some have not just like anywhere people hear the gospel; some will and some won’t. That is their choice.
          Romans 1:18-20 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.

        • The_Countess

          “God will provide the gospel.”

          except that never happened. ever. the Jesus story has only spread through word and written language.

          “Missionaries have taken the gospel of salvation to them”

          along with deceases that killed a great many of them. excelent messaging system god. send them salvation and kill them at the same time.

          “That is their choice.”

          again, not a choice. if your built-in BS meter goes off, that’s not a chose you make.

          and again you quote the bible. do I again have to tell you that you are no more believable to me then a man quoting the Koran would be to you? i have no reason to believe what either of those books says. why did you pick one over the other? because one was forced feed to you as a child and you never read the other.

        • mallen11

          I am very sorry you feel and believe the way you do. You are rebelling against a power that is far greater than you and you will know it. He loves even you.
          John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.
          HEBREWS 1:3 And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,

        • The_Countess

          “You are rebelling against a power that is far greater than you and you will know it.”

          cute, chalking it up to being rebelious so you can internally easily dismiss anything i say as not important.

          “He loves even you.”

          but is going to throw me in a lake of fire anyway?

          he knows exactly what it would take to convince me he is real, but chooses not to provide it.

  • PoodleSheep

    Butt-hurt bible thumpers are always an amusing thing to see. It’s hate speech because it points out the hateful evil things in your fairy tale book?

    • TXLady706 TXLady706

      Your illiterate. I’m positive that there was some point that you were attempting to communicate, however, it becomes lost in you inability to write.

      • PoodleSheep

        My illiterate what?

        Pro-tip… if you’re going to call someone illiterate and claim they have no ability to write, know the difference between your and you’re. I thank you for that. For everyone else: in case she (assuming here based on username) decides to edit her drivel, it started with “Your illiterate.”

    • Marj0120

      Your name is very appropriate, like a sheep you follow even if it takes you over a clift. I look at the happiness in the hearts of those who truly believe, it works for me and I’m a changed person since I not only accepted Christ but made a real commitment to follow him insofar as my being imperfect will allow. Atheism is in my humble opinion a means of allowing behaviors that Christian beliefs says is wrong. “I do not believe in God therefore there is no sin”. “I can do as I wish so long as it does not violate “man’s law”. Man has declared that I have the right to kill an unborn child, it’s my body. I can sleep with whomever I wish anytime, any place, and it does not matter if that person is a man or a woman. Atheist want to wipe out anyone who might cast a doubt on their non-belief, who might make them stop and reconsider their beliefs. You quote the behaviors of the past knowing full well that modern Christians do not behave as the early “believers may have or did” You never consider that they were not “real Christians but power grabbers”. And yet having justified all of your behaviors because there is no God, look at how unhappy you are Poodle Sheep. You start your post by calling believers “Butt hurt Bible thumpers”, has one Christian posting here called anyone a name as a way to start their post?

      • PoodleSheep

        First, if anything, it’d take me over a cliff. Second, is it not “the lord is my shepherd” which means that christians self-identify as sheep?

        I assume if you’re following jesus, you’ve given up all of your possessions to give to the poor and abandoned your family, correct? Or are we cherry picking? I’ll go for cherry picking.

        I see you’ve also decided to employ the use of the no true scotsman fallacy as well. Congrats. I’m sure if I wanted to take the time I could probably get a pretty good logical fallacy bingo card score with your post but I don’t feel like it right now

        As far as atheists just wanting to sin or in general being horrible people, I’m going to do something that I know doesn’t sit well with believers and I’m going to use facts. First, atheists/non-believers have a lower divorce rate than those of faith. There are some faiths that do better here, but we’re talking averages. There are far fewer atheists in prison than those with faith. Atheists and non-believers give more to charity and are more likely to give for the sake of giving instead of being “required” to do so by their faith. Check out “Good Without God” if you’re willing to actually have an open mind.

        I also find it amusing you assume I’m unhappy. Sure there are days when I’m feeling a little down, like I’ve discovered that the season has ended for a favorite TV show, but I find it amusing that you just assume us atheists are somehow unhappy people. It makes me very happy seeing people on team jesus trying to do the mental gymnastics to fit antiquated fairy tales into a logical view.

  • Ed DeRocher

    God Says The Atheist is a Fool.
    The Wisdom in God’s Word states that it is Folly for a person who Answers a Matter Before he has Heard ALL the Facts of the Matter. (Proverbs 18:13) In short, God says he is a Fool. A Wise Lawyer Would Not Risk his Professional Reputation in court (as a Fool) by Not Investigating All of the Facts in a Legal Matter. He would be Prepared for Uncertain Rulings that would depend on the court’s Acceptance or Rejection of the Evidence Presented. The Evidence of Jesus’ Death on the Cross and Resurrection Demands a Verdict and a Wise Decision. The Atheist who claims that God Does Not exist has Answered the Greatest Question too Quick Before He has Examined and Heard All the Facts of the Matter. He has made an Absolute Claim that God Does Not exist, yet He has Never Searched for God Nor has He Ever Read God’s Word to Investigate the Truth of the Matter to Verify his Claims. The Bible is the Only Source Available to man to Know and understand God. The Atheist is Intellectually Dishonest because he has Formed his own Absolute Opinion while Refusing or Neglecting to Hear the Truth. Thus, God says the Man who Denies Christ’s Sacrificial Death and the Free Gift of Eternal Life is indeed an Absolute Fool. The Bible teaches that the man who Cannot Reason is a “Fool;” the man who Refuses to Reason is a “Bigot;” the man who is Afraid to Reason is a “Slave.” The Fool Wishes he could Reason, but Cannot, He has No Moral Compass; the Bigot is Able to Reason, but Refuses to Accept Correction, He is Prideful, (don’t confuse me with facts, my mind is made up); the Slave is Able to Reason, but He is Fearful of what people will say about Him, (Let’s Go Along to Get Along, Strive for Majority’s Acceptance). But the Willing Man has Every Good Opportunity available by his Ability & Willingness to Reason. God Favors and Blesses the Man who is Willing to Reason and Obey His Commands.

    The God of the Bible is a God of Reason. God’s Word says, “Come now, let us Reason Together, says the Lord, though your Sins be as Scarlet, they shall be as White as Snow; though they be Red like Crimson, they shall be as Wool. If you are (key words) Willing and
    Obedient, you Shall Eat the Good of the Land. But if you Refuse and Rebel, you shall be Devoured with the Sword; for the Mouth of the Lord has Spoken It.” (Isaiah 1:18-20) God Speaks to the Fools when He says “My People are Destroyed for Lack of Knowledge.”

    (Hosea 4:6) God Speaks to Us Through His Word and His Will, the Holy Bible.

    “The Fool Has Said in His Heart, ‘There is No God.” (Psa 14:1;53:1) “For the Preaching of the Cross is to them that Perish Foolishness; But we Preach Christ Crucified, unto the Jews a Stumbling Block, and unto the Greeks Foolishness.” (1Corinthians 1:18, 23) The Psychiatry Profession claims that man is a Two-part being; he has an Intellect and a Body, and that the Goodness of man lays within his Inner most being. God’s Word says this is Not correct; there is No Goodness in man in his Fallen State. (Romans 3:10, 23); “As it is written, There is None Righteous, No, Not One. For ALL have Sinned and come Short of the Glory of God.” In Genesis.1:26,27, God says, “Let us make man in OUR image, in OUR likeness,” that is a Three-Part being in the Likeness of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. The spirit of man is the most important part of his triune creation. The spirit of man was created in the express image of God and is Indestructible and will Live Forever in Eternity. God created Adam and Eve in His Glory and they were spiritually joined to God and they were exceed-ingly blessed with His Grace in all things. But when Adam and Eve Rebelled against God’s Instructions, their spiritual union was severed and their fellowship with God was destroyed. Because of Adam’s fall, man received as a consequence for his disobedience, a sin nature. This sin nature, referred to as “Original Sin,” is a “Curse,” and an inborn propensity to commit evil. God is an All-Consuming Fire and He knows that Sinful man cannot stand in His Presence without being Destroyed. So God sent Jesus the Savior of mankind so that Sinful man could be Forgiven and Reconciled to God, whereby Enabling man to Stand before a Holy God in Right standing with Him and Without being destroyed by His All-Consuming Fire.

    In the Course of 4,000 years, God Sent His Son Jesus, to Save Fallen Man by Becoming a Propitiation and Sacrifice for man’s sin, and thereby Reconciling man back to God. God is Loving, Merciful, Forgiving, and Just. The Greatest Promise in the Bible is John 3:16,17;
    “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that Whosoever Believeth in Him should Not Perish, but have Everlasting Life. For God sent Not His Son into the world to Condemn the world; but that the world Through Him Might be Saved.” The Greatest Tragedy is John 3:18; “But he that Believeth Not is Condemned already, (the Atheist, Agnostic) because he has Not Believed in the name of the Only Begotten Son of God.” God in His love, Mercy, Forgiveness, and Grace, satisfied His Justice and Hatred for man’s Sin by Providing a Way for man to be Reconciled to God, by Placing the Entire Sins of the world, past, present, and future, upon Jesus, the Lamb of God Who is Without Sin and Who takes away the Sin of the world.

    God Takes No Pleasure in the Death of the Wicked. Ezekiel 33:11 says, “As I live says the Lord God, I have No Pleasure in the Death of the Wicked; but that the Wicked turn from his Way and LIVE: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why Will ye Die, O house of Israel?”The problem with man’s sin nature is quite simple. Man Cannot save Himself from his destructive Sin Nature, therefore God provided a Savior to Deliver Him from His Evil Ways.The Bible way to heaven is achieved by a Simple Confession and an Act of Faith found in Romans 10: 9-13; that says, ”If you Confess with your Mouth the Lord Jesus
    and Believe in your Heart that God Raised Him from the Dead, you Will be Saved. For with the Heart One Believes unto Righteousness, and with the Mouth Confession is made unto Salvation. For the scripture says “Whoever Believes on Him will Not be put to Shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over All is Rich to All who Call upon Him. For whoever Calls upon the Lord (Jesus) Shall be Saved.” When a believer Confesses this prayer, he is making a Proclamation of Identification. He is Vicariously in Agreement and Personally Identifies with Death, Burial, and Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Who took his Sins to the Cross and was Raised from the Dead in Hell for the Forgiveness of all His sins, Enabling Him to Spend Eternity with the Father in Heaven.

    The Atheist and Agnostic says God does not exist, Yet They Have Not Searched for Him. The man who Does Not Search for God Will Generally Never find Him, but the man who Steadfastly Searches for God Will Always Find Him. God Invites men to Search for Him, and He Promises to Reveal Himself to ALL Who Seek to Know Him. Jeremiah 33:3 says, “Call unto Me, and I Will Answer You and Show you Great and Mighty things which you Do Not Know. ”Jeremiah 29: 11-14 says, ”For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of Peace and Not of evil, to give you a Future and a Hope. Then you will Call upon Me and go and Pray to Me, and I Will Listen to you. And you Will Seek Me and Find Me, when you Search for Me with ALL Your Heart. I Will be Found by You says the Lord, and I Will bring You back from Your Captivity;”

    The Atheist and Agnostic are Without Excuse. God has Given sinful man a Plan of Redemption and Eternal Salvation. God has Given us His son Jesus; He has Given us His Holy Word, the Bible; He has Given us His Holy Spirit. All man has to do is Choose the path he wants to take for his Eternal Destiny. God Does Not Send sinful man to Hell and Damnation. God has given man a Free Will to Choose his Eternal Destiny. Sinful man Sends Himself to Hell and Damnation by default, because He has Not Believed on the Name of Jesus, the Only Begotten Son of God. Man has to make this Choice while He is Yet Alive, for He Cannot Choose his Destiny After He Expires the First physical death.

    Contrary to Oprah Winfrey, All Religions Do Not Lead to God?
    Many say that All religions will Lead to God, but this is Not True. All religious leaders such as Mohammed, Budda, and others, Do Not have Records of their Origin, Birth, Death, and None of them Prophesied their own Resurrection. Jesus has 3 Geneologies Listed in the Old and New Testaments showing a Lineage from Adam and Eve to Joseph and Mary. Out of All the Many Religious leaders, Jesus was the “Only One Not Born Under the Curse of Adam.” Jesus was the Only Leader that was Not Born under “Original Sin” and led a Sinless life. Being Sinless, Jesus was the Perfect and Only Sacrifice that was Acceptable
    to God for Atoning the Sins of All Mankind. So then, How can any Religious Leader Born under the Curse of Adam, Save someone who is also Under the Same Curse as Adam? How can a Sinful Leader under a Curse (ie,Mohammed), Reconcile another Sinner to God? Jesus had several Prophesies of His Birth, Ministry, Suffering, Crucifixion, Death, and Resurrection that Preceded His Life on earth, by 1500 years.

    Future Historical Events Recorded in the Bible were mostly Preceded by Prophesy. Jesus verily prophesied that after He was Crucified, He would be Raised up on the 3rd day and It Came to Pass. There were 40 Old Testament Prophesies Fulfilled on the Day He died on the Cross. In the Natural, the Odds or mathematical possibilities of 40 prophesies coming to Fulfillment, over a period of 1500 years, would most likely be Gazillions to one. But in God’s Miraculous Timing, Every One of the 40 Prophesies Came to Fulfillment within a span of 1500 years. This is virtually Impossible with Man, but Very Possible with an ALL Powerful God. Jesus died on the Cross Exactly in the time period that the prophet Daniel had prophesied 490 years Before. Atheist, please take note, that Not One Prophesy had Failed; NO Not One! ALL Had Come To Pass! There are many other events recorded in the Bible as in the book of Joshua, such as when, “God had prophesied to the Israelites Regarding Joshua’s victorious Conquest of the 31 Kings of Canaan which enabled the Israelites to Possess and Inhabit the Promised Land. Of ALL the Prophesies spoken unto the Israelites, “Not One Thing had Failed, ALL had Come to Pass!” ~ (Joshua 21:43-45; 23:14,15)

    Jesus the Sinless Man, was the “Only Sacrifice” that Could Reconcile Fallen Man Back to God. Jesus’ life and death on the cross was a perfect Sinless Sacrifice; a Propitiation for
    the sins of ALL mankind, past, present, and future. Bible scholars say that Jesus was a Hypostatic Union of Humanity and Divinity. He was 100% man and 100% God and one drop of His Precious Blood was enough to Redeem All of Mankind’s Sins, Past, Present, and Future. Jesus Divinity was Given by God and His Humanity was Born into a Cursed Bloodline of Depravity. Jesus was Born Thru the Virgin Mary who was impregnated by the seed of the Holy Spirit. Jesus’ Sinless Humanity had to be Born of the Corrupted Blood Line of Adam, So that His Divinity could Atone and Reconcile Sinful man back God. Jesus had to be Born from the Cursed Bloodline to Accomplish the Atonement. The Holy Scriptures say the Way is Wide but the Door is Narrow. Jesus is the Door to Eternal Life with Father God. “Jesus said unto them, I Am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: No man Comes unto the Father, But By Me.” (John 14:6 NKJV) This is Not to say that He is (A) Way, (A) Truth, and (A) Life, meaning there are Other Ways! NO, Never! Jesus is the (Only) Way, the (Only) Truth, and the (Only) Life. His Righteousness is given to ALL Who Invite Him into their Hearts, and Confess Him as Lord and Savior of their Life. Jesus Forgiveness and Justification of sin Allows the Believer to come Boldly before God’s Throne to Stand Faultless and Blameless in a Time of Need, before Father God. “Let us therefore come Boldly unto the Throne of Grace,(In Prayer) that We may Obtain Mercy, and Find Grace to Help in a Time of Need.” ~ (Hebrews 4:16)

    The Great White Throne Judgment. Revelation 20:13-15 says, “Then I saw a Great White Throne and Him Who Sat on it, from Whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before God, and Books were opened. And another Book was opened, which is the “Book of Life,” And the Dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the
    books. The sea gave up the Dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the Dead who were in them. And they were Judged, each one According to his Works. Then Death and Hades were cast into the Lake of Fire.
    This is the Second Death. And anyone Not found written in the Book of Life was Cast into the Lake of Fire. The Second Death is Not Cessation of Physical Life, but it is the Eternal Separation of Life from Jesus, the Eternal Source of Life. God’s Word is His Will, and God’s Will is His Word. The Consciousness that we have in this mortal life is Immortal and Will Live for Eternity; to be Vividly Aware of Eternal Glory with God or Vividly Aware of Eternal Hell and Damnation.

    Only a FOOL Would Choose Eternal Hell over the Simple Choice of Eternal Glory with God. John 14:6 says, Jesus said to him, “ I am The (Only) Way, The (Only) Truth, and The (Only) Life. No one comes to the Father Except through Me.” The Word of God is Divine Truth; inspired by His Holy Spirit; it is Self-Evident truth, and It is Beyond Debate. The Bible was Written and Canonized over a period of approximately 1700 years by 40
    different authors, Who Were All Inspired By the Holy Spirit of God. The Bible is ALL about Jesus and He is the Main Character in every book and All of the Books are in Harmony
    with Jesus as the Central Theme of Man’s Salvation. There is Not One book that does Not Agree or Contradict Any of the Other Books.

    Jesus is the Word of God. In the King James Bible there are 66 books, 1189 chapters, 31,102 verses, 773,746 words, and 3,566,480 letters. Now imagine taking All these Books, Chapters, Verses, Words, and Letters, and wrapping them All over every square inch of Jesus’ body and then covering Him with Flesh. The apostle John constantly refers to Jesus as the Word of God in his Gospel and in his book of Revelation. (John 1:1,14; Revelation 19:13,16) “And He [Jesus] was clothed with a Vesture dipped in Blood: and His Name is Called the Word of God. And He [Jesus] has on His Vesture and on His Thigh a Name written, King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Jesus is the Word of God Who became flesh and dwelt among us. (John 1:14) Believers are the Flesh Who Become the Word as we Study and Meditate on the Holy Scriptures. “You are Our Epistle Written in our Hearts,
    Known and Read by ALL men; clearly you are an Epistle of Christ, Ministered by us, Written Not with INK but by the Spirit of the Living God, Not on Tablets of Stone but on Tablets of Flesh, that is, of the Heart.” ~ (2Corinthians 3:2,3) And you Shall know the Truth and the Truth Shall Make you Free.” ~ (John 8:32)

    Dr. Lewis S. Chafer, Dallas Theological Seminary founder, sums up the Bible in 5 topical
    words in his Christian Theology. Christ is the Central Theme of Scripture, and as bearing on His Person, the Bible books are classified as:

    1.) Old Testament as the “Preparation” for the Coming Christ;
    2.) Four Gospels as the “Manifestation” of Christ (Jesus’ Annointed Ministry);
    3.) Book of Acts as the “Propagation” of Christ’s Spirit (His Church Growth);
    4.) Epistles as “Explanation” of the Preparation, Manifestation, and Propagation of Christ;
    5.) The Book of Revelation as the “Consummation” of Christ and His Church.
    The Glorious Consummation of the Creator God with His Redeemed Creation; the Church, the Bride of Christ shall Behold (see) Him and Become One With Him and Eternally Joined With the Father. (1John 3:2)
    Logic Dictates If the Premise is True, the Conclusion is True Also. The Word of God has a Truthful Premise and ends with a Truthful Conclusion. “Atheist,” your name Will be Found in the “Book of Life” IF you Invite Jesus into your Heart and Confess with your Mouth and Believe in your Heart that Jesus is Your Lord and Savior of Your Life. God declares in His Word, the Bible Way to Heaven is; Choose Jesus as your Savior. God Speaks to Us thru His Word. God’s Word is His Will; His Will is His Word. “That if you confess with your Mouth the Lord Jesus, and Believe in your Heart that God has Raised Him from the Dead, you Will be Saved. For with the Heart one Believes unto Righteousness, and with the Mouth Confession is made unto Salvation. For the Scripture says, “Whoever Believes on Him Will Not be put to Shame. For there is No Distinction between Jew and Greek, for the Same Lord Over ALL is Rich to ALL Who Call upon Him. For “Whoever calls on the name of the Lord Shall Be Saved.” ~(Romans 10:9-13 NKJV)

    Evidence That Demands a Verdict and a Decision That Needs to be Made Before Leaving Earth Atheist, Your Spirit Will Live for Eternity, with Full Awareness of All Your Mental Faculties, Long After you Depart from your Temporal Physical Body. This Is Divine Truth Whether you Believe it or Not. The Choice is With You! If You Accept Jesus as Your Lord and Savior, You are Choosing Eternal Glory with God the Father! If You Reject Jesus as your Lord and Savior, You are Choosing Eternal Hell and Damnation! This Decision Has to Be Made While You are Yet Alive! Right Now! This is the Hour! This is the Greatest Decision that You Will Ever Make in Your Life! It is The Greatest Decision that ONLY YOU Can Make for Your Eternal Destiny! You have No Guarantee that You Will Live Another Hour or Another Day! The B.I.B.L.E. = Basic- Instructions- Before- Leaving- Earth

    Atheist, Agnostic, May God Grant you the Wisdom to Choose between Heaven and hell. Jesus promises in Revelation chap. 3, “He that overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I Will Not Blot Out his Name from the ‘Book of Life’; but I Will confess his Name before My Father and before His angels. Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If
    anyone hears My voice and opens the door (of his heart), I will come into him and dine with him, and he with Me. To him who overcomes (receives Jesus) I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father and sat on His throne. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” ~ (Rev. 3:5, 20-22)

    Atheist, Will You Make Your Peace with God Today? You Can Receive the Free Gift of Eternal Life Right Now by Inviting Jesus Into YourHeart by Praying this Simple Prayer Below. “Father God, I thank You for Jesus’ sacrificial death on the Cross for the forgive-ness of my sins. Jesus I thank You for Your free gift of eternal life. Father, according to Your Word in Romans 10:9,10,13; Rev 3:5; I invite Jesus into my heart. I believe in my heart and confess with my mouth that Jesus was raised from among the dead in hell to atone for my sins and redeem my spirit. I believe that Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection has redeemed me from the curse of spiritual death, sickness, and poverty. I now accept Jesus in my heart and proclaim Jesus as my Lord and Savior. I thank you Jesus for my gift of Eternal Life. Amen!” “All who call on the Name of the Lord are Saved.” ~ (Rom.10:13)

    The Bible is all about Jesus. Martin Luther called John 3:16 “The Heart of the Bible, the Gospel in Miniature.” It’s so simple a Child can Understand IT; Yet IT Condenses the Deep and Marvelous Truths of Redemption into these few Powerful Words of Absolute Assurance: The following verse, John 3;16 from the King James Bible, is the Greatest Promise to Man for Eternal Life from God, the Creator of All Mankind.
    “God” ~ The Greatest Lover.
    “So Loved” ~ The Greatest Degree.
    “The World” ~ The Greatest Number.
    “That He Gave” ~ The Greatest Act.
    “His Only Begotten Son” ~ The Greatest Gift.
    “That Whosoever” ~ The Greatest Invitation.
    “Believeth” ~ The Greatest Simplicity.
    “In Him” ~ The Greatest Person.
    “Should Not Perish” ~ The Greatest Deliverance.
    “But” ~ The Greatest Difference.
    “Have” ~ The Greatest Certainty.
    “Everlasting Life ~ The Greatest Possession.

      Great information and very true. If an atheist would read what your wrote it might make sense to them and I pray that they do. I also copied and pasted for future reference and usage.

      • The_Countess

        well edited the first paragraph then because it makes false statement about atheists.

        • mallen11

          That is merely your opinion. Atheist, like Christians have many different belief because not all Atheist think alike and not all Christians know what the the Bible teaches and think their way instead of God’s way.

        • The_Countess

          but YOU have the truth. only YOU know the true way of god. only YOU know god as no one else does.

          and funnily enough GOD wants exactly what you want.

          what a happy coincidence.

    • The_Countess

      “The Atheist who claims that God Does Not
      exist has Answered the Greatest Question too Quick Before He has
      Examined and Heard All the Facts of the Matter.”

      “He has made an Absolute
      Claim that God Does Not exist,”

      no. i think the existance of god is so unlikely as not to be worth considering.

      “yet He has Never Searched for God Nor has
      He Ever Read God’s Word to Investigate the Truth of the Matter to
      Verify his Claims.”

      i was a Christian, i read the bible, it turned me atheist.

      i’m not going to read the rest as you are obviously working from wrong assumptions.

  • Nogard Krad

    Rather funny if you ask me. the whole part of if atheist dont believe in what christian believe why would they be bothered to do anything. now if atheist were handing out books
    before the Christians well they’d counter in the same way handing out bibles. its all a matter of perspective. to which i believe the whole concept of actually not being able to think this through is rather foolish. both christian and atheist sometimes feel superior than each other. atheist and Christians, if you think or know you’re right, why would it matter if the books are given to a group of kids and teenagers? cause they can be easily influenced, i for one am against handing out books of any religion (science books, novels and stuff like that are fine) but anything that has any affiliation with religion should not be allowed. both sides have equally ignorant people.

  • The_Countess

    “If atheism were really a “nonbelief,” then atheists wouldn’t care so
    much what Christians were up to because they wouldn’t have any religious
    sensibilities to offend.”

    we have logic and reason sensibilities to offend. and unfortunately religion offends both or those quit often. maybe if people could keep their religious views to themselves more often and quit trying to indoctrinate everyone we wouldn’t have to make a counter point so often. we wouldn’t have to be so loud in offering a reasonable alternative.

    and we care about what Christians are up to because all too often they force through their will based on ancient and obsolete if not downright barbaric teachings (slavery is a-ok as long as its not of your tribe, except for daughters) to the detriment of the country and human dignity. The religious have stood against every great moral step the human race has taken. from ending slavery, to woman’s rights, to ending segregation and now equal rights regardless of sexuality the religious have stood against all of it using the exact same arguments every time.
    making ourselves hear over the madness and hate that religion teaches is vital for the future of the human race. we therefore can not be silent and stand idly by.

    • mallen11

      The problem with your premise is that you are judging those who call themselves Christians that are not following what the Bible teaches. There is nothing in the Word of God that teaches to do what you say is being done by true Christians. I have been a Christian for 50 years and have never met anyone in my association with other Christians who do what you say because we follow God’s Word and not man’s idea towards you or any other atheist. Our desire if for you to come to know the Lord Jesus Christ as your savior and learn what His Word teaches — not religion.

      • TheHappyAntichrist

        Christians are the only ones I’ve had discourse with that regularly have to defend their position from “The No True Scotsman” fallacy. I learned today that Catholics are not Christian and there were no Christians from 136AD – 1600′s according to one Christian’s claim. When you have to resort to this to defend your idea, then maybe your ideals are crap to begin with.

        • TXLady706 TXLady706

          I am Jewish, so I have no reason to defend “Christians”, however, that is false. One should not TRUST any one source. There were plenty of different type of beliefs. Even within the “Christian” sects. The proof: Greek Orthodoxy, Zoroastrians, and many other flavor of Christians were around. The same with Jews. There are MANY different variations now, but there were just as many well before the “common era.”

        • TheHappyAntichrist

          I’m aware of this. The person I had the conversation with earlier wasn’t. He tried to claim there were no true Christians until The Reformation and that The Church’s theology became corrupt when Cerdo was excommunicated in 137 CE. Don’t forget all the Gnostics Christians. Their theology actually made more sense and solved the problem of evil. Zoroastrians? Hmmm. Never would consider them a Christian sect.

        • mallen11

          It is sad that you do not understand the truth. As a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, I get my beliefs from the Word of God; not a book written by people.

        • TheHappyAntichrist

          Your version of your “truth”. Is contested by many Christians. Christians who lobby governments in Uganda to start murdering gays. Didn’t answer my question of what you teach your children. Ashamed? Don’t feel sad for me. My children will grow up learning to listen to their empathy and excise morality instead of just following orders.

          “God’s own complete and coherent message to man was recorded in perfect accuracy in the original languages of scripture: Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek. The very words carrying Divine Authorship.”

          If it’s so coherent then why have there been so many massacres over what HIs word means? Why doesn’t Christianity converge like empirical academic consensus? Why are there thousands of competing theologies and religions? Your “Divine Authorship” chose to inspire his scripture in written word in languages he knew would eventually die off. If there were any truth in your words, then people would not have to gather and chant to embolden their beliefs. The Church would not have had to resort to hundreds of years torturing and killing heretics and apostates to convert and throw civilization into a dark pit of despotism that crushed the inquisitive spirit in order to maintain a foothold. There would be no need to nurture the peer pressured hysteria in many of the Churches in order to experiance the Holy Ghost as many primitive tribes did while feeling the presence of some bear spirit.

          As for “revelation”, it is the most unreliable method to knowledge whether it’s Peter, Rishis, Moses, Muhammad, or L. Ron Hubbard. Spiritual and religious revelation has been proven to have a tract record of failure. The Bible or your “Word of God” is no different and the morality it shapes is greatly flawed. Christian organizations bring in enough funds to potentially stop children from starving to death, but they’re too busy spending millions to stop the gay agenda. I guess they haven’t seen your coherent word. pfft.

          You’re wrong. I know you’re wrong and I know I can demonstrate it. Read the four Gospels with regard to the empty tomb and answer these questions. What time of the day was it? How many women? Who else was present at the tomb? Coherent? Hardly. There are hundreds of contradictions. Just google “Contradictions in the Bible”

        • mallen11

          The sad thing about atheist is that they try so hard to not believe in God and are missing out on a wonderful way of life as long as they follow God’s Word.
          Nowadays, people are so insecure in their non- belief that they attack others who are secure in their faith.
          1 Corinthians 1:25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

        • TheHappyAntichrist

          Not really that hard. If you’ve never been indoctrinated or taught to believe. I’ve led a very wonderful and exciting life that seems to get even more exciting as time passes. I’ve traveled so much and have made many good, compassionate, and loving friends. Mostly non-believers. I have lived in many places. Experienced many cultures and had many lovers. I recently was staying on Wall street due to Sandy and will be leaving for Panama in Feb. I’ve never lived in one place for very long because I’ve always had a sense of urgency to learn and experience as much of the world as possible. Most likely due to a lack of belief of any afterlife. You learn to develop a deep compassion for others knowing they too only have a brief time to experience this wonderful world and more importantly you learn to forgive, on your own without it being a divine command. For me a lack of belief in superstition make the “Bucket List” obsolete. You end up fulfilling many different accomplishments and doing your best to ease the suffering of others. Most importantly you learn to deal with reality on reality’s terms.

          I do not attack Christianity because I am insecure. I attack it because it is a corrupt and immoral idea. Yes, it teaches some good, but it’s main tenant is little more than burdening a goat with the village’s sins then driving it out to the desert. People are responsible for their actions and should learn to listen to the guilt when others suffer from their transgressions. This guilt is healthy and should be nurtured. Christianity teaches we’re born guilty and makes one feel guilt for things that are ordinary natural impulses that are deserving of no guilt. It creates a mountain of crushing irrational guilt in those who are the most faithful where they have no choice but to relinquish, over and over again like an addict. This is NOT a healthy application of guilt. This is mind numbing damage and causes many good people to do the biding of evil old virgins. This is wickedness that attacks the very foundation of what it means to be humane and clouds the moral judgement of millions who in turn self-righteously cause irrational suffering on others due to hypocritical yearnings.

        • mallen11

          You have put Christianity in one “bucket” and think all Christians are a like. Not true. Those who know God’s Word and follow it are the best people on earth. Those who do as they please, like Atheist and other religious people, are not following His plan for their life and are not honoring or glorifying the Lord. Your opinion about what Christians are meaningless since you do not know what you are talking about; only what you have been endoctrinated by those whom you think know what they are talking about and they don’t. You are the one who is in sad state of being and are not willing to know the one true God of the Bible. Think what you will but it is only your uneducated mind that tries to make sense of something that is spiritual that you can’t understand until you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your savior. A final thought. Atheists do not use the mind or logic to arrive at their conclusion, they use didactic reasoning that eliminates certain facts and evidence to stack the deck in their favor to satisfy their own ego’s pride of being right. The Lord died for you and loves you regardless of how you think about Him.

        • TheHappyAntichrist

          Now you’re just creep’n me out. “Those who know God’s Word and follow it are the best people on Earth”
          You don’t “know” God’s word. You only think you do. Just like millions know Mohammad’s word or Vishnu’s word or Zoroastor,The Sage Laozi, and on and on and on. There are millions throughout history who claimed to know Gods Word and used His Word to do and convince whole natians to do evil. If you have knowledge of something, then you can demonstrate it in some way. If you claim to have knowledge of something you can’t demonstrate, then you’re lying to yourself.

          If God left any Words lying about, then there would be only one religion. There would be no doubt in anyone’s mind that it is His Word. You say I don’t understand, but I am looking at this objectionably. There are millions who claim they have experienced and even seen and spoken to Vishnu or Krishna. There are those who will swear that they felt the presence of Mohammad and the spiritual transformation gave them a positive outlook and everything started getting better. Just as you claim that you must accept Jesus to be live a fulfilling life. How is someone to differentiate who is telling the truth and who is lying when there is no measurable affect? Muslims have cancer rates equal to Christians. Wahhabi muslims are known for getting people off drugs through their faith as they send out suicide bombers. Denmark is one of the most peaceful and happy populations on the planet and they’re 60% atheists. In fact, a resent study found a direct correlation that shows the more religious the country the more social ills they have. This indicates that being Christian or praying doesn’t effect anything.
          How’s that for an uneducated mind? Hows that for logic?

          You are right. I cannot make sense of the spiritual and neither can you. When you assert knowledge of the spiritual, you basically make stuff up trying to describe pleasant processes of your brain. We can connect electrodes and force the brain to experience this “transcendent” presence of a greater being even in diehard skeptics like myself.

          Yes I am egotistical when it come to religion, because I know it’s mostly crap and have de-converted many Christians include the sone of a minister. When it comes to religion, I’m more arrogant than you can possibly conceive of and this arrogance burns with the confidence that no matter how much you preach, or how much you avoid my questions, mischaracterize me, sprout useless Christian rhetoric, and lie about having knowledge NOBODY has been able to demonstrate, I know, that you know, that I know somewhere deep in your mind is a small voice that agrees with me and that little seed of doubt terrifies you.

        • mallen11

          I did not even read your comment. There is no reason to since you have convinced yourself there is not God; live with it. Go back and read all my comments and get educated with the truth.

    • TXLady706 TXLady706

      What is logical? Your belief that there is no g-d or my belief that there is a g-d. Can you prove that there is NO g-d? It’s faith in the idea that there is NO g-d that guides you and your kind. It’s faith that guides me and mine. In what way is your belief superior to mine? Both are BELIEFS. Both are ALLOWED a voice. Please, don’t belittle yourself by “believing” your LOGIC is superior to mine. The LOGIC is in the Belief. You have no logical bases by claiming that there is NO g-d and therefore your logic is based on a “feeling” of superiority. For which, you have no bases.

      • Brian Westley

        You apparently didn’t notice that The_Countess is not advocating that schools teach EITHER ONE. Public schools need to be NEUTRAL.

      • The_Countess

        “Can you prove that there is NO g-d?”

        and you prove there isn’t a invisible, untouchable pink unicorn in my garage?

        as soon as you figure out how I’ll prove to you there is no god.

        in the mean time prove to me there is a god.

        every atheist knows you can prove a negative, so we dont try. you are the one making the positive claim, that there is a god, so the burden of proof is on you, not us.

        ” It’s faith in the idea that there is NO g-d that guides you and your kind.”

        its the lack of evidence that leads us to conclude that the likelihood of a god existing is so small its not worth considering until evidence to the contrary has been provided.

        ” You have no logical bases by claiming that there is NO g-d”

        his complete lack of presence, his self contradictory nature. his complete injustice in the old testament then the transformation into a loving father in the new… its pretty unbelievable really. the Christian god is easily dismissed as fabrication.

        assuming something isn’t there until compelling evidence is provided is not irrational or illogical. you assume there isn’t a invisible untouchable pink unicorn in your garage right? you dont really KNOW there isn’t but you assume so anyway. I use the same logic as you do here to not believe in your god.

        in fact i use the same logic you use when you dont believe in the give or take 3000 other deities man kind has come up with.

        ” In what way is your belief superior to mine?”

        mine doesn’t dictate I act like a sheep, grove on the ground and apologise for being human, it doesn’t include infinite punishment(hell) for finite transgressions(sin). it doesn’t condone slavery, or rape, or genocide or sexual discrimination, or lead me to treat women as second class citizens.

        ANY of those is reprehensible to me. Does that make my morals wrong?

        “Both are ALLOWED a voice.”

        ofcouse they are! and both are allowed to respond to each other. freedom of speech includes the freedom to contradict what others are saying using their freedom of speech. (BTW… there is no freedom of speech in the bible, yet we can both agree its vitally important for man kind… a bit of a oversight wouldn’t you say?)

  • AppraisHer

    I don’t blame the Godless atheists or the clueless teachers or the liberal Dept of Ed…I blame the parents for allowing them to take over their childrens minds. If you don’t agree with the brainwashing of your children, you pay the taxes that pays their salaries, why aren’t you stopping this?

    • TXLady706 TXLady706

      I do. The gov’t tells us that we have to have kiddies in school. If not thats “child neglect.” CPS will come after you. Ask any homeschooler (or their parent) if they have had any issues. Most will tell you that they have. While, I myself, can’t homeschool my kid right now, due to financial situation, I would LOVE to. I have to work in order to “buy a property” that neither I nor my kin will ever truly own. I am a slave. If there are taxes for your property, and it can be seized by the government for failure to pay those taxes, then you NEVER really own it. The government owns it and your borrowing it. The house is yours, but not the ground it sits on. By default you are a slave. I am a slave.

  • TheHappyAntichrist

    So if I promote the idea that perhaps we shouldn’t put much credit into a book that claims the “perfect” creator of the Cosmos also happens to have a fetish for foreskin (Genesis 17), then I’m participating in hate speech? Bringing to light the fact that one of the most cherished and beloved Christian traditions was murdering countless heretics, apostates, and adulterers for over a thousand years is paramount to “Mein Kamf”? When I express the idea, out of compassion and reason, that it’s not healthy for so many to worship a prophecy that yearns for this wonderful world to fall into evil and immense suffering to herald His return and our final destruction and that we must look upon the future of this fascinating world with better eyes, eyes incapable of see the silver lining of rapture if another great war occurs, then I’m not expressing anything positive? When I claim that the profession of lying to children about Hell is one of humanities most ancient enemies that must be met, challenged, and eventually overthrown, I’m intolerant?

    • Marj0120

      You absolutely are intolerant and ignorant as to the meanings and reasoning behind the early writings in the Bible. Circumcision was necessary in a time when bathing was a luxury due to the desert environment, it prevented many infections. It’s a tradition when done today not a necessity. The eating of pork was a dangerous activity before refrigeration and cooking methods/knowledge were available. Many churches still forbid it but it’s a tradition now, not a necessity. Our society puts to death those whose crimes are of a real heinous nature and rightfully so, we do our best to assure a fair hearing and many appeals before doing this to make sure we are not punishing an innocent person. The behavior of some kids today are the result of NOT teaching that there are consequences for wrong doings.
      You of course are free to disbelieve or believe anything you wish, but acknowledge that others have that same right that’s all Christians ask. I do not demand that you accept Biblical teachings or that you cannot pass your belief system on to your children, why is what I believe and teach my children such a problem for you?

      • TheHappyAntichrist

        “I do not demand that you accept Biblical teachings or that you cannot pass your belief system on to your children, why is what I believe and teach my children such a problem for you?” That depends on what you teach your child. Do you teach your child to fear Hell and that it is completely reasonable and good to eternally torture someone for a finite crime? If someone is incapable of being gullible enough to believe in your Holy Book, do you teach your children they are deserving of eternal torture? Do you teach your children that this wonderful world full of good and decent people is on a pathway of evil as Jesus foretold? Do you teach your children to love your enemy? GD right I have a problem with that! It’s cruel, unreasonable, and has been demonstrated to warp ones morality and their ability to clearly evaluate the reality of the situation. It has the potential to destroy empathy and the very thing that defines us as human. Even if the people pull together under a kind and compassionate leader and our resources were focused on finally defeating disease and hunger, there would be a large portion of the United States that would swear he was the charismatic antichrist as many of your preachers foretell. “Watch for one who will bring peace and unify the people for apparent good.” That is what many evangelicals are warning. Based on a book that is mostly wrong on everything we’ve struggled to learn for ourselves. I WILL do what I can to convince those children to break free of their mind forged shackles that has plagued society for so long. Not by force. The filth of Christianity will hopefully be driven back, spitting and cursing, to the shadow by the light of love, kindness, knowledge, reason, and compassion. These are the true enemies of Christianity and all the major religions. Ordinary common decency and rational discourse will be the eventual death blow for your self-pitying cult. It is not intolerance when good people battle an evil idea, it’s people just being decent and hopeful for our future.

  • Susan

    Schools should promote the idea of the Judeo-Christian God because our Rights in the US are unalienable and come from God. That “Rule of Law”–the idea of “Higher Power” than King’s “Law”—is fundamental to our jurisprudence. Remove God from schools, as the religion of Marx did in the 50′s—is to remove our “Rights from God”. It is unconstitutional. Why do you think there is a “Right to Sodomy” and Right to eliminate all of our Amendments????? Unalienable means something—God-Given Rights means something (Virtue)….but not when you eliminate the idea from the minds of children, and allow Vice (Sodomy) to be promoted in the schools, which is evil and unconstitutional and destroys the innocence and reality of children. Throws out the “Laws of Nature” (Common Sense)—the underlying principles of our Constitution. Justice is the only reason for government to exist—Good Government has to promote Just Laws (Justice is the Queen of Virtues. Vice can never be promoted by “Just Law”).

    I think it’s time for the theists to begin recognizing the role of non-theists in modern culture. Non-theists are the fastest growing faith group (for lack of better term), and they currently make up about 1/6 to 1/5 of the population, and are expected to make up 50% of the US population in about 25 years.

    If you cannot handle a book that points out verses in the bible which condone rape, slavery, and murder, how an you have any rational conversations at all? This inability to have a rational dialog is EXACTLY why young people are are leaving religions in droves.

    When they are the majority, you better pray that they treat you better than you treat them…

    Apparently when Atheist groups tell the truth and actually point out EXACTLY what’s in the bible, religious people don’t like it. It’s not hate speech to point out the hate speech in the bible.
