Posted on 12/09/2013 3:45:14 AM PST by Kaslin
Theres nothing like the holidays for laughing at anti-religious malcontents being driven to madness by the thought of Christians and Jews celebrating their faiths. Crosses, menorahs, happy people with satisfying personal lives these things drive the militant atheists into a sputtering rage.
Watching them fume is the gift that keeps on giving.
Normal atheists just dont believe in God, and those of us who do, figure thats between them. They respect our religion and we respect their right to have no part of it. Sure, some religious folks talk to people about their faith, but its not clear why someone advocating his beliefs to another is committing a terrible faux pas. After all, the believer believes hes trying to do the recipient a favor. The proper response if one is uninterested isnt exaggerated indignation but a polite, No thanks.
Thats how things should work in a pluralistic society where people believe different things. Sometimes you come into contact with people who dont share your ideas. We call that diversity not the bogus crush all opposition to progressivism diversity of the left but real American diversity. The key is not to be a jerk that goes for both the person sharing his views and the person hearing them.
But jerkiness is the difference between the decent guy whos just not feeling the connection with the Lord and the smug militant atheist who thinks that putting a fish sticker with legs that says Darwin on his Prius is biting social commentary.
Last year, I took my hideous terrier out after opening presents and my orthodox Jewish neighbor saw me and immediately wished me a Merry Christmas. And when he saw I was alone on Easter, he invited me to join his family for Passover. See folks, thats how you do it in America.
So, spiteful little digs like the Darwin fish show us theists well, Im not actually sure what theyre supposed to show us. That militant atheists are too smart to believe in God? Sorry, my mind is not blown. What else ya got?
Do they think that their militant atheism is some sort of powerful statement of nonconformity? If so, its right up there with other emblems of no-cost rebellion, like facial pieced and stupid tribal tatts.
Being a militant atheist in America is about as rebellious and nonconformist as being a virgin at a Brony convention. You really to want live on the edge? Go be an atheist in Iran. See how that works out for you.
These atheist evangelicals arent satisfied not to believe. They think we need to not believe too. They seem to live under the bizarre misapprehension that if they are just rude enough to us believers, well somehow unsee the light, put the scales back on our eyes and cast off our faith to embrace a life of spiritual emptiness.
To fill that vast void, militant atheists have taken to forming atheist churches, with sitting in pews, group singing long and sermons. Congratulations you picked all the worst parts of religion.
What do their sermons cover? Good morning. There is no God. See you next week? Maybe they talk about the intolerable cruelty of having to experience people wishing them Merry Christmas. Or how their kid heard Joy to the World at school and started asking uncomfortable questions when he figured out that who has come wasnt Santa.
Militant atheists are not all the same. The third most annoying kind likes to shout about how believers hate science. I sure hate science. And thats not an iPhone in my pocket. Its a magic talking-box that I power with prayers.
The ones shouting about science at us superstitious knuckle-draggers are inevitably the ones most breathlessly pushing the global warming scam. Just dont point out that their claim that all weather phenomena support their climate change hypothesis makes it not really scientific at all. Theyll call you a denier, and in militant atheist-speak, denier means heretic.
Militant atheists are irony-free.
The second most annoying militant atheists are the ones who think theyve mastered Christian dogma. Theyll quote some obscure passage from the Book of Habakkuk (2:15) and start quizzing you on how you can consider yourself a good Christian after you gave drink to your neighbor. Of course, I have an edge on them. I was raised a California Methodist, and we dont actually have any dogma.
The most annoying ones file lawsuits. Somebody wants to say a prayer before a Friday night high school football game in East Tumbleweed, Texas, and you can be sure some litigious twerp will allege that he is being subjected to the worst religious oppression since the Christians played the lions in the Colosseum.
And what Christmas and Hanukkah season would be complete without some friendless killjoy suing because a town decided to stick a cross and a menorah out in front of city hall? The sight of so many happy, content people seems painful to them. But then, have you even met a happy, content militant atheist? If so, what was the name of his unicorn?
This is not to say that some holidays dont deserve mockery. Take Kwanzaa, which is a religious holiday in the sense that progressivism is, itself, a pagan religion. Some communist professor/convicted felon named Maulana Ndabezitha Karenga (née Ronald McKinley Everett) invented it in 1966. He hung bits of Marxy foolishness off it like ornaments on a Christmas tree. My favorite is the principle of Ujama, or cooperative economics. Gee, how could a concept called cooperative economics possibly go wrong?
So, to all the believers and nonbelievers out there who live in harmony with their neighbors of all faiths or none, Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah! And to you militant atheists, have a socially just and redistributive Kwanzaa, comrades!
oh yeah i forgot about that annoyance during christmas, liberal crybaby atheists whining uggh.
Christians out number the atheists by the millions. The U.S. is a Christian country despite what odumbo thinks or tries to portray. Its time Christians start “pushing back” against the rhetoric and take this nation back.
“Theres nothing like the holidays for laughing at anti-religious malcontents...”
I don’t think that’s what Jesus would do.
And what did Jesus do to the atheists who did everything they could to destroy what Jesus and his ministry?
Matthew 23: But you have neglected the more important matters of the lawjustice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former. 24You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel.
25Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence. 26Blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup and dish, and then the outside also will be clean.
27Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean. 28In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness.
29Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You build tombs for the prophets and decorate the graves of the righteous. 30And you say, If we had lived in the days of our ancestors, we would not have taken part with them in shedding the blood of the prophets. 31So you testify against yourselves that you are the descendants of those who murdered the prophets. 32Go ahead, then, and complete what your ancestors started!
Jesus fashioned a whip at the Temple,
cursed an olive tree,
den of Vipers comes to mind,,,etc,etc,etc
Did he laugh at them? I’m asking sincerely.
Are you agreeing with me or disagreeing? Forgive my ignorance.
I don’t know but He did say “Then He said to them, “But now, he who has a money bag, let him take it, and likewise a knapsack; and he who has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one”.
Why would they need swords unless to defend themselves?
Swallow a camel....now that’s funny!
I meant “He”, not he. This is too early for me. ; )
I was writing to the laughing/mocking aspect of the article. I just can’t imagine spending this special season laughing at those who are lost.
Merry Christmas! : )
They are lost because that is their choice. Jesus never forces Himself on anyone.
Galatians 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
Thanks. And thank you for your dedication to God and His Word.
I just cant imagine spending this special season laughing at those who are lost.
...since ‘those who are lost’ appear to wield a disproportionate amount of political and legal power in our debased culture, I wouldn’t think it too unseemly for us to have a little bit of fun at their expense...
...after all, we’ve lost our prayers and symbols in the daily world...and they do say laughter is good for the inner soul...
And Merry Christmas also to you and yours.
You’re a good sport, 11mc1
like I’m chopped liver??!?
I’m all for the Lamb but Do Not Forget;
The Lion of Judah!
Bottom line: the holiday season is a time for people of faith to experience togetherness, love, peace, sharing, and joy of all sorts. Atheists get none of that, so they use that time to throw a tantrum.
What makes things even more amusing is that the end of the year is the strongest time of the year for depression caused by lack of sunlight. Celebrations and joyfulness helps to alleviate some of this. But atheists get nothing, so get to enjoy depression at its finest.
His “way” was to present the law to those who considered themselves righteous, to show them that they aren’t,
and to give grace to those who are humble and repentant and know they’re sinners.
That’s it in a nutshell. That’s the “Way of the Master”.
The Lion comes next.
Some atheists, myself included, do get such things out of Christmas.
Thank you for your dedication, as well, Big Red Badger! : )
Atheists have no love, no peace, don't share things, and have no joy?
The article did a good job of separating the militant, tantrum throwing atheists from the regular ones.
You, on the other hand, do not.
And to You!
Rejoicing in the Season!
I love messing with atheists. They think they know everything, and they certainly have to, because if they ever were forced to admit they don’t know if there is a God or not that would mean they also cannot confirm whether or not they will be subjected to eternal damnation.
Whenever they say “There is no God” I commend them on their confidence.
And then there are the religious purists who would attack Christmas from the right as well...the ones who say we’re heretics and all that for celebrating during the season of pagan rituals and that the entire season borders on blasphemy.
Tell you all what...go sulk in your own little corners or whatever and just leave me the hell alone. I know that Christ wasn’t born on 25 December, but you know what? So what.
I LIKE Christmas...I LIKE ALL that it represents, ALL that it is, I LIKE the Christmas tree, the wreath on our door, the smell of the food, the Christmas music, etc. In all, I LIKE the whole Season...
Just shut up already you miserable, loathsome beings.
I think the point of the article is that there is a difference between being an atheist and being an active opponent of Christianity.
Why would an atheist care about Christian or Jewish holiday displays?
The writer doesn't want you to laugh at atheists. He wants you to laugh at people who fight against Christianity under the guise of atheism.
or, at least I think that's what he meant.
Whenever they say There is no God I commend them on their confidence.*
They're confident that they know more than God. So they have to pretend that He doesn't exist.
The infamous Madalyn Murray O’Hair made a lot of money and undeserved fame for being the number one atheist in the country. However, her son revealed that she would go out of the house during storms and yell at God and shake her fist at Him.
I think that most atheists know that God exists, but they don't like the idea that they are not their own god.
One of my friends got a Facebook message from an atheist telling him to go to hell.
Not atheists. Anti-theists. Every atheist I know celebrates Christmas.
A: What Hell?
oh i know we Christians outnumber the atheists but the atheists sure are louder even for there low numbers
