Skip to comments.Being attacked by Militant Atheist Group - Advise?
Posted on 06/14/2008 8:25:27 PM PDT by Yomin Postelnik
I'm just wondering if anyone had this experience before. I wrote a column about the proof of the existence of a Divine Creator (see http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-religion/2029192/posts ) and am now getting google stalked by an Atheist Group in Austin, in addition to phone calls and emails.
I'm not going to stop saying/writing what I believe or stop speaking out against these tactics, but was wondering if anyone here had experience and knows what to do about google, etc. I know some of us may disagree on the issues, but I don't think there's much debate about these tactics.
The full story of what happened is available here: http://creationistsearcher.wordpress.com/2008/06/15/on-the-lies-and-harassment-tactics-of-martin-wagner-and-russell-glasser/
Dude, that sucks
Pray for those who persecute you . I have no proof it works , only faith .
Spam is everywhere.. Get a spam filter.. and just delete it all.. No response just delete it as if it didn’t happen....
Your experience proves that atheists are the
most narrow minded, militant and annoying of
ALL evangelical religionists.
BTW... Before Christ, I was (and continue to be)
evangelized far more by atheists and liberals than
I ever was by Christians and conservatives.
Mocking the cycle of life, deviancy must reproduce
itself in order to justify its existence.
HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!
Sic the Jehovah’s Witnesses on them!! LOL
Satan is testing you, remain firm in your convictions and don’t stray from God’s truth......I am sure you do this already but pray before you share your message...if you belong to a church or small group ask them to cover you in prayer.....I and others will lift you up in prayer.....
> and am now getting google stalked by an Atheist Group in Austin, in addition to phone calls and emails.
Right then. It depends what you mean by “Stalked”.
In most jurisdictions it is a crime to use a telephone for the purposes of harassment, and usually your telco will take action if you make a complaint.
Of course, that only works if they are actually harassing you. If all they are doing is providing fair right-of-reply to your messages, you’re on your own.
The Servant in Battle
I bless thee that the issue of the battle between thyself and Satan
has never been uncertain,
and will end in victory.
Calvary broke the dragon’s head,
and I contend with a vanquished foe,
who with all his subtlety and strength
has already been overcome.
When I feel the serpent at my heel
may I remember him whose heel was bruised,
but who, when bruised, broke the devil’s head.
My soul with inward joy extols the mighty conqueror.
Heal me of any wounds received in the great conflict;
if I have gathered defilement,
if my faith has suffered damage,
if my hope is less than bright,
if my love is not fervent,
if some creature-comfort occupies my heart,
if my soul sinks under pressure of the fight.
O thou whose every promise is balm,
every touch life,
draw near to thy weary warrior,
refresh me, that I may rise again to wage the strife,
and never tire until my enemy is trodden down.
Give me such fellowship with thee that I may defy Satan,
unbelief, the flesh, the world,
with delight that comes not from a creature,
and which a creature cannot mar.
Give me a draught of the eternal fountain
that lieth in thy immutable, everlasting love and decree.
Then shall my hand never weaken, my feet never stumble,
my sword never rest, my shield never rust,
my helmet never shatter, my breastplate never fall,
as my strength rests in the power of thy might.

Guys, I can’t tell you how very touched I am by your comments. I really appreciate them, I can’t tell you how much. May all of you be blessed as well and we’ll pray for each other. Thanks so much. You’re all really great and you don’t know how helpful your comments are.
I fyou are physically being stalked then a good course of action is to establish where (most important) and when (extremely helpful). If you establish where you are being stalked get some friends that will be willing to help in a stakeout from point a to point b. All should be armed with video cameras so the perps can be caught in the act. But before you go to the police try to gather as much info via email threats, calls that can further tie the perp that will inevitably deny any such stalking activity. That’s when you drop the boom...
I agree with what some others here have said. If the atheists are merely responding to you, you have no recourse. However, if they are really harrassing and stalking you, get the proof and take it to the police.
Several years ago, we had someone who would call on the phone and then hang up as soon as we answered. He would do this several times a day. We contacted the police and they tried a phone tap, but for technical reasons couldn’t find out who it was. Finally, we changed our phone number and got an unlisted number and haven’t had that problem since.
You posted one of the absolutely most scientifically ignorant posts of all time on FR and now you are afraid of the response?
Yomin Postelnik (1977- ) is a political commentator with a conservative bent who lives in Florida. Postelnik was born in Montreal, Canada in 1977. He has written on conservative philosophy and has proposed solutions to current political and social issues. His columns are regularly featured in Canada Free Press. Postelnik received a Rabbinic degree in 2000 from the Rabbinical College of Canada. He has written on the Arab-Israeli conflict, stressing that dialogue and good will must be fostered and should be the focus of concentrated efforts as opposed to land deals, which he views as temporary fixes to a larger problem. He is also a grant writer and consultant for dozens of non-profit organizations throughout the United States. Most recently he was involved in an in-depth debate on atheism and evolutionary science, taking place in May 2008. The debate was proposed by Postelnik after several atheists supposedly took points Postelnik had made in a non-related column out of context. Postelnik brought several arguments he believed to be pointing to the existence of a divine creator and posed several questions on Darwinian theory. The transcript is available at Myth Debunker.
He is also scientifically illiterate and because of this does more harm to his friends than his enemies
If they're going through all that trouble, they're extremely militant, and each one probably has no life outside the internet.
I don't understand, though, how someone "google harrasses" someone else. Bumping your article to the top and complaining about your article only brings more attention to it, and I would think a writer would consider that a good thing. Like some talk show radio hosts who make a living angering people, maybe you can capitalize on the attention, and it can work in your favor. No one wants to hire a writer to whom readers pay no attention. But they might want to hire a writer who drives people mad, right?
“...and am now getting google stalked by an Atheist Group in Austin...”
You might be dealing with the remnants of the REAL American Atheist group.
I.e., the one that Madalyn Murray O’Hair ran before she and some others
got sent to their “reward” by some of her employees.
(Funny, documentaries never mention if her killer(s) were devout atheists
Head for the catacombs if necessary!
FR is regularly used by wannabe writers as a source of free publicity. Take a look at his claim to fame post, and even if you agree with him, you have to see that he is a horrible writer.
