Posted on 11/13/2016 8:08:47 AM PST by CHRISTIAN DIARIST
Nov. 8 was a game changer and not for our essential work.
So lamented husband and wife atheists Dan Barker and Annie Laurie Gaylor, co-presidents of the so-called Freedom from Religion Foundation, which is based in Madison, Wisconsin and which claims 23,500 members nationwide.
In fact, there was much weeping and gnashing of teeth within the nations anti-God community in the wake of Donald Trumps seemingly improbable election this past week as Americas next president.
Mr. Trump has made a number of statements, decried David Silverman, president of American Atheists, that has given millions of Americans who value constitutional separation of religion and government a great deal of concern.
Candidate Trump built a campaign, fulminated Larry Decker, executive director of the so-called Secular Coalition for America, built on the Religious Rights agenda, the core of which seeks to use government to impose their religious views on all Americans.
The remarks by Barker and Gaylor, and Silverman and Decker beg the question if so many Americans share the anti-God views of the nations atheists, agnostics, non-theists, secularists, humanists, freethinkers, nonbelievers (and whatever else they call themselves), how on earth did Trump prevail on Election Day?
Well, there is an otherworldly explanation. God was with Donald Trump.
And He made fools of the pundits and pollsters who thought it near-impossible that a candidate, like Trump, with neither previous government experience nor a military background could best an opponent, like Hillary Clinton, the former U.S. senator and Secretary of State.
The Democratic Party standard-bearer enjoyed the near-unanimous support of the mainstream media (including, notably, the New York Times and Washington Post), the backing of more than half of Fortune 500 chief executives (like Berkshire Hathaways Warren Buffett and Apples Tim Cook) and the unswerving loyalty of all-too-influential special interests (from the AFL-CIO, the countrys biggest labor union to Planned Parenthood, the countrys biggest abortionist).
Clinton had formidable allies standing alongside her. But the powers of this world are as nothing before sovereign God. As Psalm 2:4-5 declares, The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them. He rebukes them in His anger and terrifies them in His wrath.
That sounds very much like what happened this past Tuesday, when a seeming act of God propelled Donald Trump to the presidency. It brings to mind the words of Thomas Jefferson, who said, forebodingly, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that his justice cannot sleep forever.
Indeed, since its founding, God has shed His grace upon America. But ours has become in recent decades a nation that has turned away from God; that calls evil good and good evil; that gives voice to blasphemers like Barker and Gaylor, and Silverman and Decker who dare to shake their fists at God.
The nations atheist minority believed it had a kindred spirit in the White House in Barack Obama, as McClatchy Newspapers reported in 2010. That was a year after Obama became the first president in history to use the occasion of his inaugural address lift up nonbelievers as part of the fabric of American notwithstanding that this nations founders were, with few (if any exceptions) God-fearing men.
And if Obamas shout-out to the nations anti-God community in his inaugural address wasnt enough of an insult to the three-quarters of Americans who identify themselves as Christ followers, he actually invited atheist leaders to the White House to express their objection to military proselytizing and faith-based initiatives, among other religion-related issues.
The Freedom from Religion Foundation, American Atheists, Secular Coalition for America and other confederate anti-God groups were counting on a President Hillary Clinton to pick up where President Obama leaves off on January 20, 2017.
Secretary Clinton ran a campaign that understandably and undeniably resonated with a clear majority of nonreligious voters, said Decker, the Secular Coalition of Americas executive director.
Well, Clintons sacrilegious views on such issues as same-sex marriage, abortion and radical Islam obviously did not resonate with God. Because He showed up on Election Day, delivering the U.S. presidency to Donald Trump, and in so doing making foolish the supposed wisdom of this world, which assumed that Clinton would waltz into the White House.
But it is Donald Trump who is this nations President-elect. Not by the earthly might, nor by the worldly power Trump summoned during his presidential campaign, but by the otherworldly Spirit of the Lord of hosts.
Of course, the nations atheist minority absolutely refuses to believe that Trumps improbable election was in any way attributable to divine intervention. Instead, they insist that the Clinton campaign and the Democratic Party did not do more to reach out to nonreligious voters, which remain the largest religious group within the Democratic Party.
So now the anti-God community is looking ahead to 2018, hoping Democrats can wrest control of at least one chamber of Congress.
The Freedom from Religion Foundations Barker and Gaylor fret that President-elect Trump has vowed to repeal the Johnson amendment that governs church politicking. And even more distressing, they say, is losing the chance seemingly just within grasp to swing the Supreme Court back to the secular side.
Its not just that President Trump will chose a replacement for the late Justice Antonin Scalia, breaking the 4-4 tie on the high court. The new president also will be given the opportunity, the atheist couple notes, to replace justices sympathetic to their anti-God agenda, including the Divine RGB, age 83, Stephen Breyer, 78, and the reputed swinger, Anthony Kennedy, age 80.
Thats why Silverman, the American Atheists president, says the atheist community must redouble our efforts to protect true religious freedom. Of course, he is not talking about freedom of religion as the nations founders envisioned but freedom from religion
That is, to completely remove God from public life in America:
Delete under God from the Pledge of Allegiance. Tear down the crosses standing in public parks, memorializing those who died in the service of this country. Remove In God We Trust from the nations currency. Forbid prayer before the start of government sessions.
Eliminate the tax exemption for places of worship. Force private business-owners to provide services inimical to their faith. Forbid Christmas decorations on government property. Ban Christmas carols in public schools. Order religious-based hospitals to provide contraceptives or abortions on demand. No mention of God by public officials not even God bless America.
Thats what an atheist America would look like. And thats why Donald Trump is just the president this nation needs for such a time as this.
About the only thing I have to say for those disappointed atheists out there is “your ‘there is no God’” God says differently.
Hey, Silvermanbergwhatever, YOUR candidate SIGNED OFF her long, traumatic political career with GALATIANS 6:9!
You people would vote for Hitler himself as long as he yells Jesus once in a while.
All the outrage on the Left is fake. And they doth protest too much!
Deep down, while they were to afraid or otherwise to bring themselves to vote for Trump, the thought of voting for Hillary was worse, so they either stayed home, left the space blank, or voted for someone else.
But even deeper down. Waaay, way down. Deep in the core of their hearts and minds, they are actually happy Trump won! They’re happy that there’s a chance that their own lives will improve. That their futures are not so bleak. That the Clintons, Bushes, and Obamas have been beaten. That they don’t have to listen to the MSM, favorite shows, trendy celebrities and sports stars—or even their loopy teachers and brain-washed friends—to tell them what to think ever again.
Their lives will go on with burdens lifted and a lighter heart because a Presidency under Hillary would mean continued struggle between family and friends under the rule of the Uni-Party and kleptocracy of the Clintons, Bushes, and Obamas.
...Or I could be wrong! :-D
The fool has said in his heart there is no God. Sorry they will not be in His glorious and eternal kingdom. Biggest losers of them all.
Why are atheists so upset. Isn’t keeping radical violent militants out actually helping them?
Golly gee! So it wasn't "church politicking" when Democrats were campaigning in black churches?

Oops - sorry for the double post!
The Bible does say,” there is no God, funny right? You can make the Bible say anything you want without context. As we all know the rest of that verse is, “The fool has said in his heart, there is no God”.
If they really want to ban all that in the government, than no government worker should be able to get a paid holiday on Easter or Christmas. They should all be required to work on Christmas day, why should millions and millions of government workers get that day off, separation of church and state right?
Au contraire, some of us are vastly relieved.
Yeah, even in concession Hillary used scripture to lie to her supporters. She neglected to use proper context of Gal 6: 7-10. (or the whole of the chapter) Yet again Hillary shows she only hears or focuses on the parts of what others say that support her endeavors - just like only hearing choice words of what comey said.
7 Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. 8 Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. 9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.
And you hypocrites want to impose your religious views on everyone else using the force of law and the misuse of the judiciary.
Suck it up, buttercup.
God is not going away at your behest.
Hey troll, long time no see.
Been about three years based on your posting history.
Still spreading lies about about believers?
Not over your hate of God yet, eh?
Those verses in context ought to make Hillary wet herself in fear.
