By 2024, The Democrats Will Be An Atheist Party
Townhall.com ^ | 4-14-2014 | Kurt Schlichter

Democrats are waging war on the faithful and are even comfortable booing God on national TV. Give it three more presidential election cycles and the Democrat Party’s platform will be expressly antireligious.

Today, they still pretend not to hate the concept of faith or hold those who have it in contempt. You’ll see Hillary hitting plenty of black churches in 2016 – after all, that condescending empty suit is in no ways tired. But otherwise, Democrats are delighting in their opportunity to burden, harass and humiliate the believing. They use Obamacare to try to force the faithful to breach their consciences. They demand that believers be silent or lose their livelihoods. Their liberal academic flunkies do everything possible to marginalize those of us who feel that life must mean more than dreary obedience to liberal orthodoxy.

They are getting closer to outright admitting what we all know they really think. Part of it is fashion – boutique atheism is trendy. Part of it is snobbery – the same people who think socialism is a viable system like to look down on others for believing in “fantasies.” But mostly, liberals worship Government and don’t like the competition.

It's important to distinguish between regular atheists and the militant liberal atheists. There are plenty of conservative atheists who don't feel a connection to God but share conservative values. The Democrats are militant atheists. They are atheists because they imagine they are smarter and wiser than people like Isaac Newton, Abraham Lincoln, Dr. Martin Luther King, and about 85% of the rest of America.

They are proud believers in “Science.” That’s different from science. Science is the one where you take evidence and draw conclusions from it. “Science” is the one where you figure out what gives liberals the most power and shriek at anyone who dissents. This explains how the “Science” is settled that cold weather proves global warming.

The Democrat Party’s changing composition makes it possible to be openly anti-God. It’s now made up of a very rich urban elite and the poor. The urban elite despises God. They aren’t even lapsed faithful – you had to have faith once to have it lapse and most of them grew up in the secular world of elite universities and liberal coastal enclaves where you’re more likely to encounter some feminist babbling about Gaia than someone who has attended mass non-ironically.

Plus, being God-free lets liberals take advantage of the moral ambiguity of situational ethics. It provides them with the kind of wiggle room they need to do exactly what they want without any annoying principles obstructing them.

Among the rest of the Democrat base, some are still notable for their religious engagement, particularly the black churchwomen we always see the liberal icon du jourpatronizing at election time. It will be interesting to see whether they choose God or Mammon when their party rulers come out and say what they really think – that the religious are suckers and freedom of religion only applies if it doesn’t interfere with progressive prerogatives.

Sure, we occasionally see a few liberal evangelicals get trotted out by the mainstream media to tut-tut believers who actually believe in something more than free money for the lazy. Their ideology is just socialism with a thin veneer of Jesus. And it’s a Jesus who appears nowhere in the Bible, a gutless hippie who runs from fights and thinks that the Gospel requires you to keep fishing while giving away your catch to the dude kicking back on the beach because he doesn’t feel like casting his own net.

In the coming years, we will hear a lot about how progressive Europeans are leading the way in casting off the shackles of religion. But not everyone in Eurpoe is casting them off. Europe may be losing Christians, but it’s gaining Muslims. You can tell them because they're the ones with the babies.

Europeans are leading the way to progressive extinction. When your society believes in nothing beyond the next statutory six-week paid vacation and your guaranteed pension at age 42, you don't have much incentive to invest in the future of mankind. Accordingly, you don't make babies. The thing is, though, societies tend to belong to those who reproduce. So get out there and make more babies, American conservatives.

It’s only a matter of time before the Democrat Party comes out and proudly admits to being what it inarguably is today, the party of hopelessness, the party of no future, the party of “Just give me money until this whole thing called life ends in oblivion.”

We'll soon find out how the allegedly religious react to a party that loves their votes but think they are fools for believing. We will soon know where their faith really lies, in government checks or the word of God.

They are the anti-Christian party now. By 2024, they will be the Persecution of Christians Party….but let’s pray that Jesus will have returned to put an end to this wickedness by then.

Even so, come quickly, Lord Jesus!

I disagree with this opinion.

The correct statement is,

“The Democrats are a Humanist ‘Christian’ Party”

They use their “Progressive Christian” label as a protective shield in order to further their heresy and infiltration into existing church organizations. They can’t become atheist outright and win elections. So this is how they overcome that pesky hurdle called “the Law of God”.

It’s for the children, after all...

Open your eyes Kurt. The Dhimmicrats are there now and only give lip service if you’re Muslim...which is a murder cult and not a religion.

It’s taken a loooong time to bring this out. It should have been done by the GOPES, gop elite snobs, running the Republican party in 2012. But they still won’t touch it because it’s not “bipartisan”. Anytime you read or hear that term “Bipartisan” from a RINO ask yourself if they believe in the 10 Commandments and sin? Particularly when it comes to lying.

But wonder not because any utterance is a lie when it comes from a member of that in name only democrat political party. For they commit no sin because they don’t believe in such a thing.

When speaking to any democrat, Ask them how could they belong to a group that don’t belive in sin or the 10 Commandments ? No wonder they such a bunch of liars and crooks.

From an atheist who knows better, they still won’t be the party of reason. There are plenty of screwballs out there who are atheists.

Too late, they already ARE the Atheist Party and have been for some time. Problem is their agenda to eliminate Christianity is still being allowed. Taking “God” out of everything thing this country has practiced and believed since its inception, removing prayer from schools, removing crosses when legally displayed, etc., and the list goes on and on, has shown positive evidence of their efforts.
WHO IS GOING TO STOP THEM?

They are the party of birth control.

Sorry, practice birth control, promote it, pretend it’s ok, and there is not a belief in God as the Lord.

Every other amoral tenet in this society and culture stems from that.

Abortion is a symptom of it.

And the democrats are the party of birth control.

republicans are stumbling around trying to figure out the proper comeback to it, but they should admit it. It’s a powerful position and it has the power of atheism behind it.

The easy answer is stick to the constitution, bu t the republicans are as dependent on birth control as the dems so they’re caught

They are all atheists. And it’s why Putin is ahead in the pollls

The Dems are already the party of death - abortion. They have abrogated to themselves the power over post-natal life with obamacare. It's scary where we are headed if the path is not corrected.

Do they really believe that is the evolutionary path of a distinctly "Anti-Christ" party?

Are you sure you’re not agnostic? Atheism seems the ultimate in hubris.

That electric pole needs to be taken down, since its resemblance to a cross is offensive.

As an atheist, I’ve found 3 areas where a real fear of God is absolutely necessary: science, medicine, and government. I wouldn’t go anywhere near a doctor who doesn’t believe in a higher power than himself.

Not that their supporters who claim to be Christians care, but the Democrat Party convention attendees booed the mention of the Name of God three times in succession at their 2012 Convention on National Television.

I think the so-called “Gay Rights Movement” has had the most to do with this, that’s why their agenda is so dangerous.

Think about it, if they are right, then the Bible is wrong. And as more and more people accept them because of the brainwashing the media has brought about, by design, that means they also reject Christianity.

Atheism is every bit an act of “faith” as believing in a Supreme being.

You cannot prove a negative.

My “act of faith” comes with evidence that the mathematical precision eminent in existence, and the recently discovered layering of a separate sequencing “language” previously hidden within the structure of DNA are of a piece.

You may call these “accidents”. Not me.

Combined with how the universe seems designed for discovery, I’ll stack my sense of it with atheism and the “odds game” anytime. We can even take it into M-Theory, multiple universes and ‘branes’ if need be. There’s a lot more going on in the ‘world’ than we know.

But if atheism fits your perceptions, you’re certainly free to go ahead with your own made-up theories about how things work.

But just remember, YOU are making it up.

The GOP is also in danger of becoming an atheist party in time, as the rinos and libertarians unite against the Christians.

“I think that the Republican Party, in order to get bigger, will have to agree to disagree on social issues,” Paul advised. “The Republican Party is not going to give up on having quite a few people who do believe in traditional marriage. But the Republican Party also has to find a place for young people and others who don’t want to be festooned by those issues.”

Agnostics make the mistake of believing a negative can be proven, which is impossible. I’m staunchly atheist.
