Atheists Mad As Hell Over Federal Court Ruling

SIGN DESIGNED BY ATHEIST HATE GROUP TO PROVOKE AND OFFEND CHIRSTIANS.

SIGN DESIGNED BY ATHEIST HATE GROUP TO PROVOKE AND OFFEND CHIRSTIANS.

Hooray for the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals. Unlike all too many liberal courts throughout the country, which have held that atheist hate speech against Christians is perfectly okay, the Sixth ruled last week that such anti-religious malice is not protected by the First Amendment.

The case dates back to 2010, when the Freedom From Religion Foundation, an atheist hate group based in Madison, Wisconsin, wrote a series of letters to Jim Fouts, Mayor of  Warren, Michigan, demanding that the city remove a nativity scene from a holiday display it has put up for years.

Mayor Fouts told the atheists they could go to the devil. So FFRF suggested a supposed compromise. Keep the nativity scene, but add a sign declaring:

“At this season of The Winter Solstice, let reason prevail. There are no gods, no devils, no angels, no heaven or hell. There is only our natural world. Religion is but myth and superstition that hardens hearts and enslaves minds.”

Mayor Fouts told the atheists, again, they could go to the devil (whether they believe in their master, the devil, or not). “I will not allow anyone or any organization to attack religion in general,” he wrote, in a letter to FFRF. So the atheist hate group sued, claiming that the city of Warren had trampled upon its free-speech rights.

A three-judge panel of the Sixth Circuit unanimously disagreed, upholding a previous federal district court decision. The panel declared that holiday displays are not “a seasonal public forum, requiring governments to add all comers to the mix.”

Moreover, the jurists stressed, it is not unconstitutional for a city like Warren to keep an opposing viewpoint out of a holiday display – like the sign created by FFRF, which the atheist hate group specifically designed to provoke and offend Christians.

“If strict neutrality were the order of the day,” the panel reasoned, logically, “the United States Postal Service would need to add all kinds of stamps, religious and nonreligious alike, to its December collection. Veterans’ Day would lead to pacifism Day, the Fourth of July to Non-patriots Day, and so on.”

The heathens at FFRF raged against the Sixth Circuit’s ruling. They attributed it to the fact that “(a)ll thee judges that decided the case were appointed by Bush I or Bush II” and that the author of the unanimous opinion “is considered one of the most conservative judges on the Sixth Circuit.”

But what really must trouble the litigious atheists at FFRF is that the Sixth Circuit has given municipalities throughout the country a new legal defense when and if FFRF demands that they remove a nativity scene during the holidays or tear down a cross at a public war memorial or tell public school kids they are not allowed to pray before football games.

It is, as Mayor Fouts celebrated, “a victory for freedom of religion.”

Gloria Allred Client Shakes Down Christian College

TERI JAMES DOESN'T THINK SHE SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR HER UNWED MOTHERHOOD.

TERI JAMES, LEFT,  DOESN’T THINK SHE SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR HER OUT OF WEDLOCK PREGNANCY.

Teri James is a deceiver. She pretended to be a faithful Christian when she applied for a job with San Diego Christian College, but proved to be an interloper.

The 29-year-old knowingly and willingly signed the school’s “community covenant.” In so doing, she foreswore “abusive anger, malice, jealousy, lust, sexually immoral behavior including premarital sex, adultery, pornography and homosexuality, evil desires and prejudice based on race, sex or socioeconomic status.”

Last October, James was summoned to her supervisor’s office. She acknowledged that she had broken the covenant by engaging in promiscuous sex – with a co-worker, no less – which resulted in her pregnancy outside of holy matrimony. The Christian institution let her go.

Now James is suing on grounds of supposed wrongful termination.

And she has retained the legal services of the notorious Gloria Allred, who last year represented Sandra Fluke in her defamation claim against Rush Limbaugh (which went nowhere) and Jenna Talackova, a transgender, who challenged her disqualification from the Miss Universe Canada Pageant (the spineless Canucks caved).

James says, sure, she signed San Diego Christian College’s covenant. But she had no idea the school would actually hold her to her promise to refrain from “sexually immoral behavior.” And who knew she would get pregnant two weeks after signing the covenant?

“I needed a job in this economy,” said James, pleading her case on NBC’s “Today” show. “I never thought that anything would happen.”

Besides, says Allred, the covenant James signed “does not say that you will be fired if you do not comply.” Her client should not have been expected to behave like a true Christ follower just because she happened to work for a Christian institution.

James thinks she is striking some sort of blow for women’s rights. Like Susan B. Anthony, who fought for women’s right to vote. Or Norma McCorvey, aka “Jane Roe,” who fought for women’s right to abortion on demand.

“I want to pave the way,” said James, self-importantly. To “say, Christian organizations, you can’t necessarily fall back on this. You can’t hurt people like this. If you say you stand for love and mercy and grace – stand for those who are weak.”

What James is saying is that Christian organizations should not be able require their employees to adhere to a Godly code of conduct, even if hirees agree to do so as a condition of their employment.

She also suggests that employers that hold their workers accountable when they break clearly established rules – like those set forth in the community covenant she voluntarily signed with San Diego Christian College – wrongfully “hurt people.”

“I was unmarried, pregnant and they took away my livelihood,” she protested.

But it’s James’ fault that she lost her job with the Christian school. Indeed, before she chose to lay with her co-worker, to whom she was not married, she knew there very well would be consequences if she was found out, as she was when the tell-tale signs of her pregnancy appeared.

Yes, she lost her livelihood while unmarried and pregnant. But she shouldn’t expect her former employer to pay for the choice she made that led to her situation. Her financial (and non-financial) support should come from the man she laid with, the father of her child.

As to love and mercy and grace, particularly “for those who are weak,” it is indeed expected of Christian institutions, like James’ former employer.

But God loves us. His mercies are new every morning. He sheds His grace upon us, everyone. Yet, He’s been known to punish those who defy Him, who abide unrepentantly in their sins. And He’s even known to correct those whom He loves.

Perhaps if James acknowledged her wrongdoing, if she vowed to go and sin no more, she would be enjoying by now the fruit of God’s forgiveness, if not San Diego Christian College.

Instead, she and her lawyer Gloria Allred are trying to shake down the religious institution for a payoff James does not deserve.

Atheist Hate Group Attacks the Ten Commandments

A MONUMENT TO THE TEN COMMANDMENTS HAS STOOD ON THE GROUNDS OF CONNELLSVILLE JUNIOR HIGH FOR MORE THAN HALF A CENTURY.

The Connellsville Area School District in Pennsylvania was sued this week in U.S. District Court for refusing to remove a monument to the Ten Commandments that has stood for more than 50 years on the grounds of its junior high school.

That follows a similar federal lawsuit against the New Kensington-Arnold School District in Pennsylvania, which was filed two weeks ago, and which objects to display of the Ten Commandments in front of one of the district’s high schools.

Both legal actions were initiated by the so-called Freedom From Religion Foundation, an atheist hate group based in Madison, Wisconsin. It is using the courts to wage an unholy war not so much against religion, but against Christianity, the target of 99.9 percent of its litigation.

If FFRF was a legal advocacy group, which bore no animus toward Christ followers, but simply wanted the courts to maintain the proverbial “wall of separation” between church and state, I would still disagree with group, but I would not accuse it of nefarious motives.

But the atheists at FFRF truly are haters, as evidenced by their “virtual” billboard campaign, featuring the godless testimony of “out of the closet” atheists.

“The bible is nothing but a bunch of bull crap,” sneers atheist Eugene T. Bernascone, in one such billboard. “If you believe anything it says, I can get you a fantastic deal on the Eiffel Tower. By the way, it’s also good when you run out of toilet paper.”

Now, imagine if this gentleman said such a thing about the Koran. He might set off riots in the Muslim World. He might even be denounced by President Obama in the well off the United Nations.

But because his hate speech is directed at Christians, he gets a free pass. And his atheist cohorts at FFRF follow up his verbal assault on Christians (and others like it) with legal attacks against easy targets like the Connellsville and New Kensington-Arnold school districts.

What infuriates is that the courts allow the atheist haters to get away with their unholy war against the Christian faithful, lawsuit by lawsuit. That includes the U.S. Supreme Court, which has had a supposed conservative majority since Ronald Reagan was in the White House.

Indeed, just last year, the nation’s highest court declined an opportunity to revisit a case examining whether displays of the Ten Commandments in two county courthouses in Kentucky were an unconstitutional endorsement of religion.

In 2005, the Supreme Court ruled that the displays were indeed unconstitutional.

However, since then, the counties have included the Ten Commandments as part of a broader presentation of historic documents, including the Mayflower Compact and the Declaration of Independence.

That the High Court last year left in place its 2005 ruling against the Ten Commandments doesn’t bode well for the Connellsville and New Kensington-Arnold school districts. The lower courts almost certainly will side with the atheists, declaring that God’s law has no place in schools or other public buildings.

Village Voice Media Continues to Enable Sex Trafficking

CHASE, AN ALLEGED 19-YEAR-OLD, FOR SALE TODAY ON BACKPAGE.COM.

Hello, My name is Chase! New, hot, & ready to forfill [sic] all of your wildest dreams. Weighing 115 and standing at 5’4” with the complete package to take you to ecstacy [sic] ! ! ! In call starting at $80. Out call starting at $100. Poster’s age: 19.

That’s an actual sex ad posted today in the Seattle listings of Backpage.com, a website that boasts a 70 percent market share of the nation’s prostitution ads according to AIM Group, the leading research and consulting service for the classifieds industry.

The owners of Backpage.com, Village Voice Media, are determined to defend their lucrative partnership with sex traffickers, including those who pimp out teen-aged girls like Chase (who probably isn’t even 19-years old).

That’s why they’ve sued the state of Washingtonto invalidate its new law requiring classified advertising enterprises – like Backpage.com, like Craigslist – to verify the ages of girls, like Chase, appearing sex-related ads.

As the spokesperson for its lawsuit against the EvergreenState, Village Voice Media chose female lawyer Liz McDougal, whose defense of online sex trafficking is the immoral equivalent of Sandra Fluke’s advocacy of a government-mandate on private health insurers to provide contraception coverage.

McDougal agrees that the “trafficking of children for sex is an abomination.” But her company refuses to stop doing business with the sex traffickers responsible for that abomination.

“I believe,” she said, in a written statement, “that aggressive improvements in technology and close collaboration between the online service community, law enforcement and (non-government organizations) is the best approach to fighting human trafficking.”

Well, when exactly should we expect to see this anti-trafficking tech come online?  And when exactly shall we expect to see that collaboration between online classified companies, like Backpage.com, and law enforcement and NGOs?

Too late, certainly, for Chase and other young girls whose bodies are being sold on Backpage.com, generating millions of dollars in ill-gotten profits to Village Voice Media, McDougal’s godless employer.

That’s why the state of Washington is absolutely right to crack down on Backpage.com and its 70 percent market share of prostitution ads. No morally-upright company would knowingly and willfully profit from sex trafficking or other illicit activity.
