Posted on 03/07/2011 5:09:31 AM PST by IbJensen
The last several months have been a busy time for Americas atheists, as several different factions around the nation have launched media campaigns aimed at talking people out of their belief in God. The latest blitz comes from the New York-based atheist organization Center for Inquiry, whose multi-media ads declare, You dont need God to hope, to care, to love, to live. The group is focusing its no God campaign on three cities Washington D.C., Houston, and Indianapolis.
According to the groups president, Ronald Lindsay, the campaign targets what he claims are a few myths about people who deny Gods existence. One common myth is that the non-religious lead empty, meaningless, selfish, self-centered lives, he said. This is not only false, its ridiculous. Unfortunately, all too many people accept this myth because thats what they hear about non-believers.
Another "myth" that drives atheists like Lindsay to distraction is the notion that godless individuals lead immoral lives that are devoid of any goodness. One reason this myth persists is many religious believers see their god or their faith as the basis for emotions such as hope, caring, and love, Lindsay said. We dont deny that the religious may find inspiration in their beliefs, but our religious friends should not presume that accepting their beliefs is necessary for a fulfilling life.
In Indianapolis, the Center for Inquirys executive director, Reba Boyd Wooden, insisted that her group is not trying to get people to give up their religion. Were just saying that theres a misunderstanding that some people think if youre not religious, you cant even be a good person, she said. I think this is a great message. I dont see anything wrong with it. If it had been something really disparaging someones religion, I dont like that.
While it is certain that atheists can be decent people who lead fulfilling even good lives, Dr. Craig Hazen, a Christian apologetics professor at Biola University in Southern California, told the Christian Post that the differences between Christians and atheists go far beyond actions. You are talking about joy, and pleasure, and goodness and so on, he said. If youre employing words like that and you have no objective basis for the reality of those words ... in other words, if you dont believe in a moral law giver who actually gives meaning to the words good and evil, you can ... put up billboards all day long and they mean nothing. Noting the atheists own worldview, Hazen challenged, What does it mean to do good in a world thats really just a gigantic accident of matter and energy?
According to the Christian Post, the Bible professor said that he has yet to hear a decent argument from an atheist or naturalist as to what grounds their real objective morality. The only way to know good, joy, and love or even pain is if there is a moral law giver who can actually communicate those things, he maintained, adding that if its a person created in Gods image and there s a moral law giver, then you have a real concept of morality and you can live a good life or you can live a bad life and you can know such a thing.
The Center for Inquirys ad blitz follows a more in-your-face campaign waged in early January by the group American Atheists. That organizations lone billboard, displayed in Huntsville, Alabama, to advertise a regional atheist conference scheduled for later that month, sported such religious symbols as a cross, a star of David, and Islams crescent moon, and bore the terse slogan, You Know Theyre All Scams.
While the groups communications director, Blair Scott, agreed that the sign would likely make a lot of Alabamans especially the Christians who make up a majority in the Bible belt community upset, he assured the Huntsville Times that our target is not the Christians, but all the atheists and agnostics still in the closet who are still pretending, still playing the game, still putting up a facade.
The group's website defines a scam as a ploy by a shyster to raise money, a fraudulent business scheme, or a con meant to intentionally mislead or victimize the unwary. Of course, the campaign is meant to point the finger at religion especially Christianity which the group parodies as follows:
Lets face it: religion tells a good story. All you need to do is follow the preacher and good things will happen. You will never really die, and due to your involvement in (insert religion here) you will benefit for eternity. Yes, it pleases the invisible man-in-the-sky that you follow your preacher just ask your preacher and he will tell you.
The point of the parody? American Atheists doesnt think religion deserves respect for lying or scamming people, the anti-God marketing piece challenges. Religion is a major conduit of wealth and power in this country, and this all comes at the expense of well-meaning intelligent victims of the greatest con-job ever. We urge you to get off your knees, keep your money, and regain your dignity.
While atheist groups have spent millions of dollars on such anti-God media projects, their campaigns have actually borne some wholesome fruit they never intended. Last December, a group in Dallas calling itself the Metroplex Atheists paid to have signs placed on the sides of Dallas-area busses, declaring, Millions of people are good without God. The goal of the ad campaign, the groups spokesman told the New York Times, was to assure all the nameless and faceless people who dont believe in God that they are not alone. People dont realize there are other atheists. All you hear around here is, Where do you go to church?
But as the busses rolled around town with their anti-faith message, a Dallas-areas businessman, Heath Hill, came up with an inspiring counter message to assure the reader of Gods love. Hill decked out one of his companys large panel trucks with a sign on both sides reading, 2.1 Million People Are Good With God, along with a message underneath showing a globe in a pair of hands, along with the phrase, I still love you God. Hill then had a driver follow busses with the atheists ad, thus tag-teaming the godless message with one declaring divine hope and promise.
Explained Hill, We just wanted to reach out to them and let them know about Gods love. We have gotten some pretty nasty e-mails and phone calls from atheists. But its really just about the love of God.
This is on purpose & would not be surprised if the funding for the militant Athiest movement came from Saudi Arabia. Direct conversion from Christianity to Islam is very rare. But its much easier to conver to Islam if you believe in nothing first. Atheism is just a way station to Islam.
The first thing the Communists did was take God out of everything and turn people into atheists.
Look for lots more of this stuff over the next 6 weeks. They always use Advent and Lent --- the run-up to Christmas and Easter --- to spotlight crucifixes in immersed urine; the Virgin Mary framed in elephant dung; the Pope with a huge transparent condom over his head; the play about Jesus inseminating his Apostles up the anus; the S&M Last Supper; the bus posters featuring "We're Catholics and we believe in abortion rights," and all the other tributes to holiness emanating from the intellectual and artistic community.
Time for extra intensive prayer, my FRiends.
“The group is focusing its no God campaign on three cities Washington D.C., Houston, and Indianapolis”
I guarantee these campaigns are focused on mostly white neighborhoods.
I’d love to see them try to focus an anti-Christian message near an inner city black church where many gang bangers grandma’s go to church. Don’t piss off a grandma of a gang banger.
“According to the groups president, Ronald Lindsay, the campaign targets what he claims are a few myths about people who deny Gods existence.

The irony of his statement just seems to have gone right over his head.
With the evil regime sucking up to the god-less muslims one can only wonder and speculate about how we got from back there to today in respect to this adulation of killers.
Some blame can be left on the Vatican doorstep. The Roman Catholic Church was a bulwark of Christianity and Christian thought since the Ascension. Many Christian denominations looked toward the Church for guidance and leadership in matters of faith and morals, or was at least looked upon with respect.
That position was abrogated during and subsequent to the error referred to as Vatican II. The Church became humanistic and the tenets were discarded. Old Church structures were boarded up, sold or torn down and edifices resembling airplane hangers took their place. Confessionals and statues were destroyed or sold for scrap or backyard ornamentals.
When the muslims saw that the Church left behind by Jesus Christ had become a crumbling, perverted imitation of its former self it made it much easier to glide in and assert its evil over the contemporary brand of Christianity.
There is no mystery and awe that was evident in the Novus Ordo ‘service’ today. Over the past 50-60 years phony priests signed on to help destroy the Church by preying on the young. I believe they knowingly helped satan and the muslims in their evil by creating massive scandal. The idea of destroying the Church by this means was hatched in the Kremlin by Josef Stalin as he saw two enemies of the USSR: the USA and The Roman Catholic Church.
If this un-Godly mess that has perpetuated over the past 50 years isn’t corrected by the reigning pontiff the Holy Trinity will become incensed. Benedict’s successors to Pius XII had much explaining to do and it doesn’t take a lot of speculation to surmise where their souls may end up.
The new mass is a poor excuse for the Tridentine Mass and the priest’s role has been usurped into practically irrelevance.
With Christianity greatly weakened and fewer adherents showing up on Sundays it’s no wonder Muslims with their Koran and form of evil government are emboldened and asserting themselves in every nation.
This situation will not turn around until the Catholic Church gets back its Catholic.
[ So I wonder what the reaction would be if they posted a sign saying
Millions of people are good without Allah.
Do you think those buses would be allowed to roll?
Just askin’ ]
These Athiests don’t have the stones. The only Athiest I really “respect” is Pat Condell. He at least is consistent.
