The latest stupid argument fomented by the Atheist Thought Police can be found right here:
The new spokesman for the Atheist Left is Theoretical Physicist Lawrence Krauss, who has decided that teaching anything that challenges scientific theory, based on who is making the challenge, is child abuse.
In fact, if you teach the basic tenets of your faith to your kids, and those tenets don't accept Mr. Krauss's ideas as fact, you're just like the Taliban... you know, those guys who hold public beheadings in soccer stadiums and sponsor worldwide terrorism.
Let's ignore that fact that there are college professors, doctors, scientists, and lawyers who believe in God. Atheists have decided if you teach your kids that anything in the Bible is fact, you've destined them to be drooling idiots, doomed to a life of janitorial or warehouse work. You don't believe me? Then believe the HuffPo article I linked to.
So what's next? Now that Atheists are calling creationism "child abuse", will there be attempts to have parents jailed for teaching their family's faith to their kids? Is your local Child Protective Services agent going to show up at your front door with a court order to place your kids in foster care (presumably with non-religious foster parents)? When an outspoken Atheist like Lawrence Krauss (an American who grew up in Canada) uses words like "child abuse", is he suggesting that the State circumvent the alienable fundamental right of everyone to practice their faith? Is this the kind of totalitarianism Atheists are willing to embrace in order to make their beliefs (and I do mean beliefs) the only beliefs shared in the public arena?
What do you expect when they liken Believers to terrorists?
Centuries ago, certain sects of the Church committed what people commonly know as The Inquisition. It was actually a means to gain and hold political power over the ignorant masses, as well as to control information and the arts and sciences. Atheists still compare modern day Christians to the Inquisitors, yet in suggesting that teaching Creationism is "child abuse", the Atheists themselves are becoming modern day counterparts to the people they ridicule.
Atheists have become the subject of the old adage, "We mock what we're to become."
Are Christians becoming the new pagans and Atheists the new Inquisitors? Just look at what Lawrence Krauss said in the interview that was cited by the HuffPo article:
“Sure, it is mild child abuse, but it is [child abuse],” Krauss said. “We
need to encourage our children to question freely and try to think for
themselves. Anything we do that counters that is unfair to them.”
Unless they choose to question science. After all, Creationism IS the challenge to Naturalism, and if you had your way, Professor Krauss, it would be completely squelched, the way Tomas de Torquemada tried to silence all dissidence against the Church.
While Atheists try to portray Christians as a danger to society, they think the rest of us are too stupid to see their brand of totalitarianism, masked as "science education".
Don't get me wrong. I don't have a problem with teaching science.I have a problem with preaching dogma under duress, and punishing parents for exercising their 1st Amendment rights.
Atheists seem to have overlooked this, however, as their narcissism keeps getting in the way.
