Dear Christians, We Hate You. Sincerely, Atheists



Imagine if an activist group blanketed a major city with 55 billboards urging that illegal aliens go back to their own country. Or that homosexuality is a crime against nature. Or that Muslims are responsible for most of the world’s terrorist attacks.

The mainstream media would be all over the story. Organizations – like La Raza, like  GLAAD, like CAIR – would organize protests. President Obama would publicly condemn the billboards (while defending illegals, homosexuals and Islam). And the sponsors of the billboards would be branded a “hate group.”

Yet, there has been little outrage over the 55 billboards that started going up last week in Sacramento, California that mock Christians, that blaspheme God. They are sponsored by the so-called Freedom From Religion Foundation, an atheist organization based in Madison, Wisconsin that truly is a hate group.

“I don’t believe in Odin, either,” sneers one billboard. “Studying the bible made me an atheist,” disparages another. “Without god I am full of love,” declares still another.

Yet, Judy Saint, director of FFRF’s newly formed Sacramento chapter, insists that the 55 billboards are not anti-Christian, not anti-God. They just thought it would be a good way to encourage atheists on the down low to “come out of the closet”

“There are thousands of us here,” she said, “and we are reaching out to them because it’s such a maligned minority. If the message at all is to believers, it would be that we are good moral people, too.”

But, by her own words, Saint reveals the nefariousness of the atheist movement in this country.

She suggests that atheists are an unfairly maligned minority. But if the noisome atheist community – which constitutes less than 1 percent of the U.S. population – is maligned, it’s because of their attacks on Christians by in-your-face atheist groups like FFRF.

Indeed, not only are the atheists putting up 55 billboards that bash the religious faith of more than three-quarters of Americans, they have deliberately chosen to do so during the Christmas season, defecating on a holy day on which Christians celebrate the birth of Christ the Lord.

Saint also claims that she and her fellow atheists are both “good” and “moral.”

But there is no good in the atheists’ (un)holy war against Christianity, using billboards as their weapon of attack. And there is no morality in the atheist community’s endorsement of such practices as same-sex marriage.

Indeed, one of FFRF’s 55 billboards features Saint, the atheist hate group’s Sacramento front woman, and her wife with the message:  “Reason. Equality. Doing Good – All without gods.”

That’s the arrogance of atheists that they inherited from their father, the devil. They think that “doing good” means they are good. But the Bible advises that their good works, whatever they might be, “are as filthy rags” before the Almighty.

The Word of God also  tell us, everyone, “There is none righteous, no not one.”

The difference between unrighteous Christians and unrighteous atheists is that Christians are born again; their sins covered by the blood of Christ. Atheists, on the other hand reject Christ, and shake their fist at God.

And for their unrepentant, unforgiven sin, the unGodly will spend their existence beyond this fallen world  in everlasting torment.

Atheists Mad As Hell Over Federal Court Ruling



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.”

Atheists Claim Abraham Lincoln as One of Their Own


It never ceases to amuse – if not infuriate – how often atheists claim as one of their own much-revered historic figures who happen to make the news for some reason or another.

So it was when Neil Armstrong went to be with the Lord this past August.

So it was when Albert Einstein’s so-called “God Letter” went on auction last month.

And so it is now with Abraham Lincoln.

The nation’s 16th president is the subject of a new motion picture, helmed by Stephen Spielberg, the Oscar-winning director, with the screenplay penned by Tony Kushner, the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize winner.

The Great Emancipator also is the subject of a new book, “Lincoln’s Battle with God: A President’s Struggle with Faith and What it Meant for America,” authored by Stephen Mansfield, who has previously produced several New York Times best-sellers.

If you check out some of the atheist web sites, with names like Atheist Empire and Positive Atheists, they insist that Lincoln was a non-believer, a “freethinker.” And to support their contention, they trot out second-hand quotes attributed to the rail-splitter.

“The Bible is not my book, nor Christianity my profession,” Joseph Lewis, claims Lincoln said.

 “The unsoundness of the Christian scheme of salvation and the human origin of the scriptures have become clearer and stronger with advancing years, and I see no reason for thinking I shall ever change them,” Lincoln reputedly wrote to Judge J.S. Wakefield.

Now I do not rule out entirely that Lincoln may have spoken or written those words at some point in his life, although there is no hard evidence to that effect. Nor do I rule out the possibility that Lincoln struggled with his faith at some point in his life, as many of us have.

But I am absolutely convinced the great president, who saved the Republic following the Civil War, died a true believer.

Otherwise, he couldn’t have written the spirit-filled words he spoke in his second inaugural address, which followed Civil War, and which Lincoln delivered one month before his assassination:

“With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.”

Mansfield, the author, writes, “The truth is that Lincoln was, in fact, a religious pilgrim.” I take that to mean that, as a young man, the future president was a religious skeptic, but grew strong over time in his walk with God.

He may even have been like Saul of Tarsus, who actually denounced Christians before being struck blind on the road to Damascus; who was transformed into the Apostle Paul, a servant of Christ.

Interestingly, Kushner, the scriptwriter, who actually describes himself as “an agnostic,” said that working on the Lincoln movie led him to believe that a higher power must have been involved in Lincoln’s life.

“Every once in a while,” said Kushner, “in politics and history, you get this sneaky feeling that somebody shows up at a historical moment when they’re really needed…

It’s eerie that they show up out of nowhere: They seem to be the perfect person for the task, like somebody must be designing this. And there’s no example like this in American history as great as Lincoln showing up when he did.”

Kushner is right. Abraham Lincoln was the perfect person for the task set before him. And I believe the scriptwriter’s suspicions also were right. That the nation’s 16th president did not show up on the scene by accident of history.

There was, indeed, somebody designing that. And that somebody was God Almighty.

Atheists Right at Home at Democrat Convention


Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx spoke yesterday at the Democratic National Convention, welcoming attendees to North Carolina’s largest city.

Two hours later, the Charlotte Atheists and Agnostics, a local affiliate of American Atheists, held a convention protest, at which they reiterated their demand for absolute “separation of religion and government.”

So what does that have to do with Foxx, Charlotte’s first Democrat mayor in 22 years?

Well, back in May, Foxx proclaimed “A Day of Reason,” in a bow to the city’s atheists and agnostics. And he “commend(ed) its observance to all citizens.”

Sounding very much like the speakers ranting against God yesterday at the Charlotte Atheists and Agnostics’ protest, Foxx’s proclamation declared that, “the application of reason, more than any other means, has proven to offer hope for human survival upon Earth, improving conditions within the universe, and cultivating intelligent, moral and ethical interactions among people and their environments.”

And the framers of the U.S. Constitution thought so too, Foxx added.

Why this is significant is that it provides context to what Mayor Foxx said yesterday during his remarks at the Democrat convention. “I live by the values,” he said, “this community taught me.”

And that’s not all, Foxx continued. “I have seen President Obama at work,” he said.  “And these are his values too.”

Well, I take Mayor Foxx for his word.

That both he and President Obama believe, as do atheists and agnostics, that “reason,” more than God, offers the best hope for human survival upon Earth. And that both he and President Obama believe that the nation’s founders were as godless as they.

Indeed, I think it no oversight by the Charlotte Democrats that there is no mention of   “God” whatsoever in the party’s 2012 platform (compared to 10 mentions of the Almighty in the Republican Party platform).

Just as I think it no oversight that not one Democrat leader uttered a word of disapproval when American Atheists put up a billboard, just before the Democrat Convention, which blasphemed, “CHRISTIANITY: Sadistic God; Useless Savior; 30,000+ Versions of ‘Truth;’ Promotes Hate, ‘Calls it Love.’”

No true Christ follower would be a member of a political party that refuses to acknowledge God in its platform; that embraces a hateful constituency that rants against the Lord Almighty.

“Do not be yoked together with unbelievers,” the Scripture warns. “For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common?”

Atheists Lie About the Declaration of Independence


Atheists are determined to rewrite American history to further their ungodly purposes.

Consider the “Freethought of the Day,” published on this Fourth of July by the so-called Freedom from Religion Foundation, which is based in Madison, Wisconsin, which describes itself as the nation’s largest association of “freethinkers,” including atheists, agnostics and skeptics:

“On this date in 1776,” reads the atheist Freethought, “Thomas Jefferson’s ‘Declaration of Independence was adopted… Its secular purpose was ‘to dissolve the political bands,’ and it inaugurated the anti-biblical idea that ‘governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”

Finally, it repeats the canard that “Jefferson was a Deist,” adding that the founding father “was highly critical of Christianity” and that his “revolutionary document made reference to a ‘Nature’s God.’”

This is nothing more than atheist revisionism, meant to undermine the indisputable fact that America was founded by Christians, who envisioned the former collection of colonies as one nation, under God.

The atheists refer to Jefferson’s Declaration of Independence, as if it were entirely his creation. That’s because, in their twisted minds, they imagine he was secretly one of them.

But the Declaration was hardly Jefferson’s solo work. He was tasked with incorporating the collective thoughts of the founders in the document.

And while the Declaration did indeed have a “secular purpose,” to dissolve the political bands between the original 13 colonies and the British crown, that purpose was informed by the founders’ conviction that all men are created equal, and are “endowed by their Creator” – the God whom the atheists deny – with certain unalienable rights.

The atheists suggest that the principle with which there is near-unanimous agreement among Americans, that our government derives its just powers from our consent, is somehow anti-Biblical.

But nowhere does the Scripture endorse government exercise of unjust powers over the dissent of the governed.

Then there’s the weird atheist insinuation that Jefferson’s reference to “Nature’s God” was a tacit rebuke to Christianity, of which, they claim, the founder was highly-critical.

But Jeffersonwasn’t referring to Pan, the Roman god of nature, or to some other mythological god, but to the living God who created the whole Earth, which is filled with His glory.

And while the atheists at Freedom From Religion Foundation want to claim the Declaration of Independence as their own, the inconvenient truth is that not even one of the signers of the nation’s founding document was a “freethinker” or “atheist” or “agnostic” or “skeptic.”

In fact, all 54 signers were men of faith. And nearly half actually were heads of Christian seminaries.

To maintain that the faith of the nation’s founders had no bearing whatsoever on the Declaration of Independence is to deliberately skew American history.

But that’s the kind of deceitfulness for which atheists are known.

Atheists Dishonor America’s War Dead


The Woonsocket, R.I. Cross was erected in 1921 as a memorial  to U.S. servicemen who answered this nation’s call to duty in World War I.

The Mount Soledad Cross in San Diego was erected in 1954 to honor those who gave their lives in defense of the stars and stripes in World War II.

The Big Mountain Jesus statue in Whitefish, Mont. was installed in 1955 in tribute to veterans of the Great War.

How ironic that, on this day on which a grateful nation pays homage to America’s sons and daughters that have fallen in battle, the three aforementioned war memorials are in danger of being removed from the respective sites on which they have stood for more than half a century.

In all three cases, the memorials are under attack by purpose-driven atheists who argue that the presence of Christian icons on publicly-owned land are unconstitutional violations of the First Amendment’s so-called “Establishment Clause,” which declares that “Congress shall make no laws respecting an establishment of religion.”

Well Congress made no law creating the war memorials at Woonsocket, Mount Soledad and Whitefish. Nor did lawmakers commission the crosses or statue. The memorials, the Christian icons, were all the work of private organizations.

So the atheists make the claim that the Establishment Clause is much broader than written. That allows them to assert than any war memorial on any public land – federal, state or local – must be entirely godless

But the time to make that dubious argument was back in the 1920s, when the Woonsocket Cross was erected, and the 1950s, when the Mount Soledad Cross was erected and Big Mountain Jesus installed. Not 90-something years or 50-something years after the fact.

And just how far are the courts going to let atheist hate groups go?

Like the so-called Freedom From Religion Foundation, based in Madison, Wisconsin, which has threatened legal action against both the city of  Woonsocket and the U.S. Forest Service (which leases the land on which Big Mountain Jesus sits to a private ski resort).

As Rhode Island Attorney General Peter Gilmartin said, in defense of the Woonsocket Cross, “Our national cemeteries are filled with grave markers including the cross and the Star of David. Should they be removed also?”

The atheist extremists  at Freedom From Religion Foundation – who not only have petitioned the courts to order removal of religious symbols at war memorials, but also to block the annual National Day of Prayer, and to strike the words “In God We Trust” from U.S. currency – would probably answer in the affirmative.

That is why they are unworthy of the freedom for which America’s sons and daughters in uniform have fought and died. For the atheists begrudge our fallen heroes a few acres of public land in places like Woonsocket, Mount Soledad and Whitefish simply because the war memorials there invoke the Son of Man.

Atheists Are Well-Organized Hate Group


I was in Washington, D.C. this past October for the annual Values Voter Summit. When I pulled up to the host hotel, I was dumbstruck to find a group of atheists staked out at the front entrance, mocking the summit’s preponderantly Christian attendees.

Such in-your-face confrontations by atheists are becoming increasingly common. In fact, atheist activists bear many of the characteristics generally associated with a “hate group,” as defined by the Southern Poverty Law Center, the accepted authority on the subject.

The Center says a hate group is “an organized group or movement that advocates and practices hatred, hostitility or violence  towards members of a race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation or other designated sector of society.”

That pretty much includes the atheist movement.

And its hatred and hostility toward the faith community is front and center this weekend in the Nation’s Capital, where a coalition of atheist organizations is hosting the American Atheists National Convention.

This year’s cheeky convention theme is “Come out! Come out! Wherever you Are!” It’s a call upon atheists on the down low to come out as godless to their friends, family and co-workers.

The highlight of the convention is an all-day hatefest on the National Mall, which the atheist organizers are euphemistically calling “The Reason Rally.”But there will be no reason on display on the hallowed ground where Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous “I Have a Dream” sermon nearly a half-century ago. Instead, there will be one diatribe after another against religion in general, Christians – like King was – in particular.

Indeed, the atheists couldn’t have found a more hateful roster of speakers for today’s rally.

It includes Oxford University Prof. Richard Dawkins, author of the polemic, “The God Delusion,” who wrote that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is a “vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser, a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.”

Then there’s Adam Savage, the proud third-generation atheist, the co-host of “Mythbusters” on the Discovery Channel. In a 2010 speech to the Harvard Humanism Society, Savage said “the need for God” by those who do not share his godlessness is similar to the “need for conspiracy theories.”

Religious rubes just can’t believe that the universe, that life as we know it,  just happened. But that’s reality, said Savage. “No one is in charge.”

Then there’s the band Bad Religion, which gets to blaspheme to a punk rock beat at today’s atheist rally. The band’s logo, a black cross with a red prohibition circle over it, is referred to by its fans as the “Crossbuster.”

The secularists,  humanists, agnostics, naturalists, atheists that have gathered in the Nation’s Capital this weekend are betting eternity that God does not exist. If they are wrong, they will have hell to pay.
