Over the past few years, evangelical atheists have switched places with fire-and-brimstone Christians: where once it was the Christians who brooked no disagreement, now it is the atheists; and it is the atheists, too, who perform cartwheels on the heads of pins.
Christopher Hitchens once even managed to argue of the Reverend Martin Luther King, of all people, that In no real as opposed to nominal sense . . . was he a Christian.
A weaselly self-righteousness is now the hallmark of the celebrity unbeliever. Meanwhile, it is the Christian who nods diligently in any discussion, taking pains to reassure the atheists how very much he respects their point of view.

In the latest edition of Prospect magazine, the philosopher A.C. Grayling writes another of his pieces in support of atheism. In it, he exhibits a deft sleight-of-hand which, viewed close-up and in slow-motion, looks more and more suspicious.

Christopher Hitchens now KNOWS there’s God.
Did MLK ever preach the real Gospel? All of his so-called sermons that I recall were centered upon the false doctrine of "social justice", a communist orthodoxy, contrary to the Word of God. Even during his last days on earth, King was marching on behalf of a leftist government union, American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees. There was little, if any, of Christ's teachings in the words MLK spoke from the pulpit.
and there it is...
Self-righteousness is just a phony form of respectability and pretty much all of today’s ‘’celebrities’’ are as phony as they come.
Atheists would be a great deal more interesting if they weren’t so boring.
Just curious: How many of King's sermons/speeches have you heard?
FWIW, MLK is about 1000X more tolerable than modern black leaders like Sharpton and Jackson.
I thought it was “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned by the other, other woman!!!”
I've heard (or read) quite a a few of his utterances, including these vile, most un-Christian words from MLK about Ronald Reagan and the patriots who supported him:
"When a Hollywood performer, lacking distinction even as an actor, can become a leading war hawk candidate for the presidency, only the irrationalities induced by war psychosis can explain such a turn of events."
Reagan didn’t run for president until 1976.
You should also note that both Sharpton and Jackson loudly proclaim that they are “reverends”.
Sharpton has one “doctor of divinity”, which makes him a reverend. In his case it was voted by his congregation. That is, a church “voted” that he was a reverend. Later, some college gave him an *honorary* second D.D.
Jackson actually attended a theological seminary in Chicago, but did not graduate. He was also voted a “reverend” by his church. So Jackson also has a D.D.
Oddly enough, in Britain, a D.D. is one of the highest *earned* degrees. Not a joke, like it is in the US.
‘’There is no Hate like the Hate that Love hath turned; and Hell hath no Fury like that of a woman scorned.’’
Ronald Reagan ran for the presidency in 1968 including a primary win in California, winning the popular vote by a slim margin. With Reagan on the national stage, that’s why Martin Luther King spoke in such a hateful manner against him in November 1967 at the National Labor Leadership Assembly for Peace.
OK, so if science is their belief then how can they claim, "There is no God"? For starters, science requires that your hypothesis be testable, and there's no way to test the theory that there is no God. You would have to look for God under every rock in the universe to prove your theory. That's why science also dictates that "you can't prove a negative", yet
atheists Free Thinkers base their beliefs on a stated non-starter within their own belief system, science.
BTW, I'm not an anti-science Neanderthal; I'm an engineer that makes a good living through science...by the grace of God.
” ....a freethinker does not mean a man who thinks for himself. It means a man who, having thought for himself, has come to one particular class of conclusions, the material origin of phenomena, the impossibility of miracles, the improbability of personal immortality and so on..”
G.K. Chesterton “Orthodoxy.”
Hard to believe but there are people who imagine we just keep coming back and coming back and that we strive to get off it through advanced spiritual enlightenment, and there you have Chris Hitchens getting a free boot for being a gadfly philosophical debater. 2 Billion Buddhists and Hindus are undoubtedly screaming that it's just not fair!
I love having conversations with atheists like this:
“Don’t you know that Christianity is responsible for slavery, and murder, and ....”
“Well, you can’t relate that directly to the teachings of Christianity - the New Testament says nothing even close to that, but atheist governments killed 100 million people in the last 100 years.”
“WAIT THAT’S NOT TRUE AT ALL, THAT WASN’T A RESULT OF ATHEISM DIRECTLY!”
“Then why did Stalin conduct most of his gulag round-ups while his anti-religion purges were occurring? Why did Pol Pot purposefully slaughter 99% of the Buddhist monks of his country? Why is China imprisoning, torturing, and murdering Christians and the Falun Gong even today?”
*Atheist’s head explodes*
I always say that atheism is a religion. It boils the blood of the atheists who are the smartest people in the room. They will tell you themselves.
>>I always say that atheism is a religion. It boils the blood of the atheists who are the smartest people in the room. They will tell you themselves.
Yeah, if they deny it than I say, “God does not exist is a faith statement.” Then they usually go on about science, to which I say, “So science has never been wrong about anything.” Then they usually call me names.
Dont you know that Christianity is responsible for slavery, and murder, and ....
So do they realize that statement says there was never any murder or slavery prior to the birth of Christ? :? Even non-Christian historians know better than that.
Although questions abound as to whether Chesterton actually said this, I think it’s appropriate here: “A man who wont believe in God will believe in anything.”
