American Atheists Brags About Curbing Free Speech

Once again, freedom of speech as guaranteed under the United States Constitution is under attack when that speech violates the tender sensibilities of radical Atheists.

The American Atheists website is bragging about their lawsuit against a small town Sheriff who had the audacity to speak about his faith in the public arena, via the department's Facebook page:

http://news.atheists.org/2016/08/11/atheists-reach-41000-settlement-with-tennessee-county-sheriff/

In a nutshell, it was a battle of bucks. Without admission of any wrongdoing, the Sheriffs Dept. decided to knuckle under and settle this silly lawsuit for as cheaply as it could. One of the big jokes here is that 60% of the settlement went to the ATTORNEY. The rest went to 2 plaintiffs for "damages".

WHAT damages could these 2 unhappy atheists have suffered? It seems to me a couple of intolerant liberal atheists got their underwear in a knot and needed a few grand to ease their butthurt.

The comments following the article are just precious... check out this one from "Happy Atheist"... it's a real bird's eye view of what goes on in the minds of the people that support the American Atheists Hate Club:

"70happyatheist
I wonder how many Christians are involved in breaking the law on a regular basis. I claim that the evidence is that there are large numbers of serial law breakers that qualify them to fall under the Rico statutes of serial law breakers. They could be imprisoned in huge numbers! Instead the Freedom From Religion and American Atheists and perhaps more just sued them and I do not see any comments in the articles about there being serial breakers of the law with impunity. Smile!"

"Breaking the law?" What law? Happy Atheist needs to READ the 1st Amendment of Constitution, paying special attention to the "Free Exercise Clause" that GUARANTEES the right of citizens to openly express their faith, even when those citizens are public employees.

"Serial lawbreakers who need to be imprisoned?" Maybe Happy Atheist would be happier living in an oppressive authoritarian regime, where religious believers are arrested, imprisoned and tortured for not vowing their allegiance to government as the highest power. Atheists like this brainchild have now determined that the church is a criminal organization despite the Constitution special protection of religion through the 1st Amendment. Other countries like The Peoples' Republic of China and the Peoples' Republic of North Korea are on your side, Mr. Happy Atheist.

READ THE CONSTITUTION. The 1st Amendment deals with religious freedom because it was that important to the Founding Fathers. It's NOT a guarantee of freedom from public display of faith,
kiddies. It makes religious freedom a states' rights issue and and guarantees no one is coerced to join a national church. That's it! If you don't like open expression of faith DON'T LOOK.

The only reason Atheists win these minor battles is because they put up more bucks than the defendants in most of these cases. Then they brag about defending the Constitution when their real goal is to distort it and use it to erase religion from society, much the same way Josef Stalin did in the Soviet Union.

Once again, as I keep mentioning we see "happy" Atheists stomping all over other peoples' rights by filing silly lawsuits and forcing the Tyranny Of The Minority on the general population.

If the 2 plaintiffs in the lawsuit really wanted to make a statement, they could have taken their PUBLICLY FUNDED settlements and donated them to a food bank or to a charity like the American Cancer Society. If they had done that, it would be to me more reassuarnce that miracles DO happen.

'Nuff said.

Americans Atheists' War On Christmas

Another lame attempt to step on the Christmas holiday by our dear friends at American Atheists:
                          
So, how does it make the Holiday great by ignoring The One after whom Christmas was named?

Without church, what makes the Holiday "great"? Drinking, eating rich foods, and spending more than you can afford?

Are these the values American Atheists promote now?

How many people put their noggins together and came up with this bright idea?

I guess trying to capitalize on Donald Trump's campaign slogan was considered brilliant on AA's part.

Everybody else just yawns.

Nice try, guys. Maybe next year you'll come up with something clever, but I won't be holding my breath while I wait.

'Nuff said.

Debate: W.L. Craig vs. Keith Parsons



An interesting exchange between Dr. William Lane Craig and Atheist Keith Parsons.
Some of Parsons' comebacks are so knuckleheaded you might find yourself "face-palming".
Enjoy!

To All You Atheist "Bible Experts"

Please tell me where in the Bible you will find:

1. Positive proof that babies are condemned to hell without salvation

2. The  proof that Jesus promises instant gratification of all prayers

3. The verse in the Bible that bans all public prayer

4. The Bible verse that endorses abortion

5. Positive proof that Jesus was gay

6. The proof that Jesus lied about His return

7. Proof that God sanctions murder according to its legal definition

8. Proof that salvation is an open invitation to sin

9. Proof that Christians are subject to every command of the Jewish law

10. Proof that God will save people from all irresponsible acts

Here's 10 to start. Let's keep the challenge going.

Atheist Cherry-Picking To The Extreme

Once more, I have for you a classic example of an Atheist putting up straw men arguments on his blog and ignoring the Biblical context of the passages he posts.

In a blog post titled "The Bible: Eat Babies", Stan Morris attempts poorly to convince an ignorant audience that God endorses cannibalism. His diatribe is found here:

http://factbasedinitiative.net/2015/05/17/the-bible-eat-babies/

I don't need to refute each individual point, because every verse he posted was taken out of biblical context. In fact, Mr. Morris didn't bother to inform the reader that the verses he cherry-picked were mostly warnings against the dire circumstances of losing God's protection through disobedience.

If God endorsed the eating of babies, why did He bother to send out prophets to warn His people that their cities would be besieged? The preface to this was their chasing after false idols and thumbing their noses at the God who brought them home from slavery.

Yet, even after all the punishments God's people endured, they were redeemed and set back in their rightful place.

This blog symbolizes the blatant intellectual dishonesty that feeds the Village Atheist's view of religion. Hatred of Christianity trumps an honest discussion of it.

Yet the Atheist calls the Believer "ignorant". Oh, the irony....

Fact-Based Initiative: Oxymoronic Atheism

I find the name Fact Based Initiative amusing for an Atheist's blog, since Atheism isn't based on established fact. But here's the site master giving us his opinions. I'll interject in bold italics as I see fit.


ATHEISTS AREN’T CLOSE-MINDED. CHRISTIANS, THAT’S YOU.

Dear Christians,
Let me share with you some perspective on what a closed-mind is.
Close-mindedness is not considering that you might be wrong.
That describes Atheism quite nicely, otherwise all Atheists would call themselves Agnostics. Maybe that's why "godless" is such a popular term. It's an attempt at intellectual honesty.
A closed-mind is a mind that knows someone who is and always has been very intelligent, who says he devoted great time to study a subject, but then rejects his findings and results because they don’t agree with you.
Or, maybe the Atheist fails to provide a convincing argument based on its merit.
I know you’re a believer and I was too. I respect you for having good intentions in your belief. You want to be a good person – so did I! What I didn’t realize until recently, though, is that you can’t be a truly good person by promoting a bigoted, mind-warping, nature denying and instinct condemning religion that is ENTIRELY man-made. It has ZERO influence from an all-knowing creator. Here is how I know:
So believing in and trying to be the good person Jesus wants me to be is impossible? My, how open-minded of Mr. Stan.
The Bible has so many contradictions, in numbers and figures alone, that it, at best, would have only PORTIONS of divine influence in it. Why would an all-knowing, all-powerful god put his wishes in the middle of incorrect information? Especially since there are over 4,000 other man-created religions just like this…
I just love those big numbers. Atheists are always claiming thousands of religions exist. The fact is, nobody really knows how many religions exist. Furthermore, a large number doesn't mean all of them are wrong. Obviously, with the number of people who believe in the supernatural, SOMETHING has propagated that belief outside of simple folklore. 
The Bible is scientifically impossible. Creation did not occur. Genesis didn’t happen. Not a chance. That means there is no sin. That means all the bull about “gay people are sinners” is just that – total BULL. Yet, Christians still eat pork, get tattoos and work on the Sabbath. Hypocritical.
Genesis isn't a scientific account, it's a supernatural one.
Jesus did works on the Sabbath and explained why the New Covenant no longer had a Sabbath requirement. Peter and Paul realized that the laws against the eating of unclean animals was relaxed at the time of Christianity's infancy. And I didn't realize that the laws for Levite Priests and ancient Hebrews applied to all Christians. Is Stan suggesting God should be hypocritical and deny conversion to the faith over some body art?
This is about making the world better. Heaven and hell aren’t real. I can’t tell you an afterlife doesn’t exist but I can tell you the Bible hasn’t been right about a single thing yet.
Historical discoveries disagree with that. The Bible has been a reliable source of information on the ancient world.
An open mind in communication with a closed-mind that reasonably rejects the closed-mind’s ideas may seem to be itself closed off but in reality, we’re like two kids at the fair and you jumped on the first ride you saw, telling me it was the best there. I’m the kid that rode all of the rides and know that the one you’re on isn’t the only one there. Nothing but love.
What a dumb analogy. Trying all 31 flavors of Baskin-Robbins Ice Cream doesn't make you a better person then the guy who decided he prefers Baseball Nut or Cherry Royal. Mr. Stan here is calling the closed mind the one that rejects HIS ideas, while being in denial over the closure of his own mind.
This is a fine example of why I say "Atheists Say The Nuttiest Things."
