Skip to comments.Atheists Are Well-Organized Hate Group
Posted on 03/24/2012 7:43:45 AM PDT by CHRISTIAN DIARIST
I was in Washington, D.C. this past October for the annual Values Voter Summit. When I pulled up to the host hotel, I was dumbstruck to find a group of atheists staked out at the front entrance, mocking the summits preponderantly Christian attendees.
Such in-your-face confrontations by atheists are becoming increasingly common. In fact, atheist activists bear many of the characteristics generally associated with a hate group, as defined by the Southern Poverty Law Center, the accepted authority on the subject.
The Center says a hate group is an organized group or movement that advocates and practices hatred, hostitility or violence towards members of a race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation or other designated sector of society.
That pretty much includes the atheist movement.
And its hatred and hostility toward the faith community is front and center this weekend in the Nations Capital, where a coalition of atheist organizations is hosting the American Atheists National Convention.
This years cheeky convention theme is Come out! Come out! Wherever you Are! Its a call upon atheists on the down low to come out as godless to their friends, family and co-workers.
The highlight of the convention is an all-day hatefest on the National Mall, which the atheist organizers are euphemistically calling The Reason Rally.But there will be no reason on display on the hallowed ground where Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous I Have a Dream sermon nearly a half-century ago. Instead, there will be one diatribe after another against religion in general, Christians like King was in particular.
Indeed, the atheists couldnt have found a more hateful roster of speakers for todays rally.
It includes Oxford University Prof. Richard Dawkins, author of the polemic, The God Delusion, who wrote that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser, a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.
Then theres Adam Savage, the proud third-generation atheist, the co-host of Mythbusters on the Discovery Channel. In a 2010 speech to the Harvard Humanism Society, Savage said the need for God by those who do not share his godlessness is similar to the need for conspiracy theories.
Religious rubes just cant believe that the universe, that life as we know it, just happened. But thats reality, said Savage. No one is in charge.
Then theres the band Bad Religion, which gets to blaspheme to a punk rock beat at todays atheist rally. The bands logo, a black cross with a red prohibition circle over it, is referred to by its fans as the Crossbuster.
The secularists, humanists, agnostics, naturalists, atheists that have gathered in the Nations Capital this weekend are betting eternity that God does not exist. If they are wrong, they will have hell to pay.
Southern Poverty Law Center is not a recognized authority in anyone’s mind but their own and some lefties.
“”...a hate group is an organized group or movement that advocates and practices hatred, hostitility or violence towards members of a race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation or other designated sector of society.”
Sounds like liberal terms and conditions to me. They’d never consider family feuds over family matters now would they? They call those “crimes of passion”.
They are counting on Christians behaving like, well, Christians. That doesn’t always work.
The request was supposedly provoked by a complaint from a visiting student from another state who chose to take offense at it.
I’m guessing they feel religion has been shoved down their throats whether they want it or not (guess what, in this country you can have any belief, or NO belief, should you choose) and they’re angry about it so they’re fighting back
and they seem to have hateful feelings towards any “believers”. If anything they seem to want to disrupt things like those MIC CHECK! Occupiers who disrupt events by doing a shouted-out repetition of their views, “and if you don’t like what we’re doing, tough.”
People like Hitler, who was arrested preventing someone they disagreed with from speaking. “It’s alright, we got what we wanted,” he said. “He did not get to speak.”
They are also behind the long-running litigation to remove the Mount Soledad Cross, which honors our war dead.
I know. But the mainstream media will not accept any putative authority other than one that promotes the liberal orthodoxy.
I always wanted to ask an atheist if they will pray on their death bed, just in case.
A true Atheist does not care if anyone believes in God, and is not bothered by the religion around him, attributing it to silliness and ignorance. The Atheists described in this article seem to be very agitated about something they believe does not exist. And they feel compelled to show it. Seems to me they actually DO believe in God, its just that they oppose Him.
There are atheists that are simply comfortable removing the shackles from their own minds, but there are others that want to free others — and those in between.
Some of them could probably go about it a different way. If you present people with reason and rational arguments, and let them realize that they really do have a choice, they will eventually gain the strength to reject religion. And more and more people are...
In full seriousness: I was an argumentive atheist in my youth, only to discover as I grew up I had neither time nor lingering inclination to argue with people on that topic. Marxism is an infinitely more dangerous and immediate threat than monotheism.
For the materialist who debunks everyone else's ideas as the subrational products of their brain chemistry or environment cannot avoid being debunked himself. If he is honest, says Lewis, the materialist will have to admit that his own ideas are merely the "epiphenomenon which accompanies chemical or electrical events in a cortex which is itself the by-product of a blind evolutionary process."
Thanks for the ping. Yes, organized atheists are a hate group.
LOL! Loved it! Especially the one on top.
If the Lord's Word is read with a positive attitude, amazing things happen. It happens every day countless times all over the world. There is a God of heaven and earth and He is Jesus Christ. May all find His Divine Truth!
Did you ever work with a boastful atheist? I did. What a trip. I finally quieted him down with quips back at him. We became friends. But he was strange with words. LOL!!
