    During the Democrat debate this past week, the Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF) ran an ad where Ron Reagan said he is a lifelong atheist and isn't afraid of burning in Hell. He's saying he objects to the over 84% of Americans who are religious injecting their beliefs into government policies. Essentially, he's calling for the institution of his faith-based belief system, atheism, as a national religion in direct contradiction to the First Amendment.

    “Listen. I gotta break it to you . . . I’m post-Christian. . . . I don’t believe it anymore. I don’t believe any of it.” These are the words former Christian minister Bart Campolo recalls speaking to his famous evangelist father, Tony Campolo, after leaving the faith of his youth. He explained that his journey to secular humanism was a 30-year process of passing through every stage of heresy. In other words, his theology “progressed” from conservative to liberal to entirely secular. He predicted that in 10 years, 30 percent to 40 percent of so-called progressive Christians will...
  • 'In God We Trust' will remain on US currency as Supreme Court declines atheist challenge

    The Supreme Court declined Monday to take up a legal dispute targeting the inscription of In God We Trust on coins and currency from the Department of Treasury. Michael Newdow, an activist who filed the case on behalf of a group of atheists, argued Congress's mandate to inscribe the nations motto on U.S. money was a violation of the First Amendments Establishment Clause, which prohibits Congress from establishing a national religion.

    Democratic lawmakers in Massachusetts want to take "God" out of the oath of office for every elected official in the Bay State. The bill, proposed by State Representative Mindy Domb, D-Amherst, would amend the state Constitution -- the oldest in the country -- from "so help me, God," to a longer, secular version: "This I do under the pains and penalties of perjury." The measure was approved by the Joint Legislative Committee and is supported by atheists who believe invoking God violates the establishment clause and goes against America's pluralistic history. "It's yet another cynical attempt to erase the rich...

    We cannot separate the influence of the church from the foundation of the state no matter how many times atheists and their corrupt lawyers sue. People in general do not seem to agree on much these days, split between their own confused ideas and the latest narrative promoted by the deceitful main stream media, beholden to the globalist ideology of Democrat Socialism and Cultural Marxism. Often the thought processes of the voting masses are incoherent because their knowledge, the reality, and their basic instincts of survival and safety are perverted by the globalist agenda but they are too ignorant to...
  • Supreme Court to Decide Constitutionality of Cross-Shaped World War I Memorial

    The Supreme Court will decide the constitutionality of a towering cross-shaped memorial to Maryland men who died in the First World War. The Supreme Court agreed in early November to hear the case in which the American Legion is asking the high court to reverse a 2017 appeals court ruling that the memorial violates the First Amendments prohibition on governments establishing religion. Overturning a lower courts decision, the Fourth Circuit panel said the memorial, which stands on public land, is unconstitutional because it excessively entangles the government in religion. The case may be a gauge for the conservatism of the...

    VLADIMIR, Russia -- Anna Galinkina was appalled recently to see portraits of Stalin-era secret-police officers festooning celebratory billboards at local bus stops. Her father, Zinovy Galinkin, was sent to the gulag shortly after World War II on flimsy accusations of "anti-Soviet propaganda," and she resents the rehabilitation of those who persecuted her family under the government of President Vladimir Putin. "Today it is obvious that they've removed their masks...The ruling corporate elite of heirs of the Soviet chekists" -- a reference to the former secret police -- "are openly taking revenge on those who refuse to let society forget about...

    Chicago, Ill., Jun 9, 2018 / 04:28 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- A U.S. appellate court has ruled against a self-described Satanist from Chicago who had filed a lawsuit seeking to remove the motto In God We Trust from U.S. currency. The ruling, released May 31, found that a reasonable observer would not perceive the motto on currency as a religious endorsement. Kenneth Mayle, who describes himself as a non-theistic Satanist, filed the original lawsuit in May 2017. A lower court had dismissed the suit, and Mayle appealed. The 36-year-old told the Chicago Tribune that carrying and using money with the motto...

    The 40-foot Peace Cross was erected in 1925 as a memorial to the 49 soldiers from Prince Georges County, Maryland who perished in World War I. The Bayview Park Cross in Pensacola, Florida has occupied its location since 1941 when Americas armed forces prepared to enter World War II. And the Veterans Memorial Bell Tower in Evendale, Ohio was dedicated just last year in memory of those who lost their lives in the service of our nation. As a grateful nation marks the sesquicentennial of Memorial Day, how ironic it is that the three aforementioned war memorials are in imminent...
  • The new gang of hyper-confident male atheists wants you to laugh at religion

    The New Atheists were never a particularly funny bunch. They were either, like Richard Dawkins, chippy materialists with a quasi-religious faith that science can offer a complete answer to any mystery worth contemplating. Or they were, like Christopher Hitchens, swaggering verbal stylists whose cleverness put a charming gloss on sentiments about believers that would otherwise sound like hate speech. But there is another gang of hyper-confident male atheists for whom knee-slapping humour is front and centre in their atheist proselytizing, far more than science or intellectual debate. These are the Comic Atheists, people like TV host Bill Maher, Family Guy...

    The U.S. Navy turned down the application of an atheist chaplain to serve in the Navy Chaplain Corps. The move comes after 43 members of Congress signed a letter warning that the very definition of what it means to be a chaplain is at stake. Colorado Rep. Doug Lamborn (R) and Missouri Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R) explained in a joint statement on Wednesday that the Navy made the right call in turning down the appointment of Dr. Jason Heap, the national coordinator for the United Coalition of Reason based in Washington, D.C., who first made the attempt under the Obama...

    The Swiss Bishops will send three young people to the Roman Pre-Synod taking place in March as a preparation for Pope Francis Youth Synod, 20min.ch reported. The controversial Pontifical Council for Culture explicitly asked for delegates who were critical of the Church and atheistic. One of them is Jonas Feldmann, 25, a non-practicing Catholic who opposes Catholic doctrine and is active in the pro-abortion, pro-gay, anti-family and pro-euthanasia Green party, an extremist leftwing party. He will tell Francis that he does not want to be a member of an institution that discriminates homosexual love. Another delegate is the journalist Sandro...
