Obama Administration Ripped for 'Historic' Meeting with Atheist Anti-Religion Hate Groups
Christian News Wire ^ | Feb. 26, 2010 | Jim Crumley

The advocacy group In God We Trust today ripped the Obama administration for meeting to plot political strategy with 60 atheist activists representing organizations comprising the Secular Coalition of America.

"It is one thing for Administration to meet with groups of varying viewpoints, but it is quite another for a senior official to sit down with activists representing some of the most hate-filled, anti-religious groups in the nation," says In God We Trust's Chairman Bishop Council Nedd.

Tina Tchen, the director of the White House Office of Public Engagement, will meet with representatives from groups that comprise the Coalition. The Coalition's sponsoring organization's include American Atheists, founded by Madalyn Murray O'Hare and the Freedom from Religion Foundation which is campaigning to stop the post office from issuing a stamp honoring Mother Theresa.

"President Obama seems to believe that it is a good idea to have a key senior aide plan political strategy with people who believe faith in God is a disease," Nedd says. "Some of the people in this coalition believe the world would be better off with no Christians and no Jews and they aren't shy about it. The fact that this meeting is happening at all is an affront to the vast majority of people of all faiths who believe in God."

According to the Freedom from Religion Foundation's President Dan Barker, "Christianity is an enemy to humanity, and the antithesis of freedom." (Dan Barker, Freedom from Religion Foundation Co-President in Losing Faith in Faith Page 255) and "Religion also poses a danger to mental health, damaging self-respect, personal responsibility, and clarity of thought." (Losing Faith in Faith Page 217.)

Madalyn Murray OHare declared, "Ours is a time when successful struggle against this reactionary philosophy requires more than a petulant argument over the authorship of the Gospels, more than a negative attack on the totalitarian and monolithic authoritarianism of conventional religion, but rather an aggressive action program to spread the positive philosophy of materialism." (Source: American Atheists website.)

"The President should tell the American people whether he believes these groups' hate-filled views to be 'mainstream' and worthy of his supposedly inclusive administration," Nedd says.

That is ridiculous, that would mean the President would not be allowed to meet with his own party.

The Declaration of Independence attributes our unalienable rights to the Creator. This is the foundation upon which all our freedoms rest. How can you deal with people that deny the existence of a Creator and, therefore, the source of unalienable rights? It would be similar to dealing with people that reject capitalism or the right to private ownership. It would be very interesting and informative to hear Obama’s views on religion. I suspect he is an implicit atheist.

Obammy is what happens when an inexperienced punk ass community organizer with a pretty smile is elected to an office where he quite obviously is in over his head.

Would you let the “magic nigro” walk your dog? Run the fry line at McDonalds? Drive your garbage truck? Mow your lawn?
I’ll tell ya what I’d let him do, , KISS MY REAR END.

Well, I can see why this wouldn't be a problem for the guy who campaigned in all 57 states.

It is not at all surprising that the vast majority of atheists are very liberal. They almost unanimously support violent population control and communist oppression.

The only immoral things in their twisted minds are faith in the unseen and verbal rejection of pleasure-on-demand policies.

There you have it. "Secularism" is just another word for atheism.

Atheism is a religious belief. A viewpoint that there IS no god. The no god "god". Man above all.

It can no more be established in our government or taught in our schools than any other religious belief system.

Notice that he’d meet with Achmedinijad or Chavez or Il without preset conditions, but Republicans get no such courtesy.

If not Mother Theresa, why do we honor Martin Luther King? Weren't they both motivated by religious belief?
It's not for their religion, it's for the SERVICE to humanity that we honor them. MMO'H is truly loathsome, and those atheist groups she founded will stop at nothing to tear down our spiritual heritage.

Christopher Hitchens is rabidly pro-abortion (as well as being a fundamentalist atheist advocate) and has said that he hopes that if there is a hell she’s burning in it.

Atheists DESPISE Mother Theresa. Bigotry. Plain and simple.
