If Only God Were Not …

I have given consideration for quite a long time to why the atheistic radical left-wing is so strongly opposed to God and Christianity.  What inspired the “War on Christmas” and led to no “Pledge of Allegiance” in schools?  Why do these people insist that we interpret “Freedom of religion” to mean “Freedom from religion” and work so diligently toward achieving their agenda; re-writing our history leaving no room for God and attempting to erase any signs of the importance Christianity played in the founding of this great country. 

While it is certainly true that Christianity is growing dramatically in certain regions of the world, it does seem that there is a “war” being waged on Christianity in this country of ours.  I list here a few quotations to illustrate the point:

“It is wonderful not to have to cower before a vengeful deity, who threatens us with eternal damnation if we do not abide by his rules.” 

~Karen Armstrong, A History of God

“If he does exist, I personally want nothing to do with him.”

~Victor Stenger, God: The Failed Hypothsis 

“I want atheism to be true …. It isn’t just that I don’t believe in God …. I don’t want to live in a universe like that.”

~ Philosopher Thomas Nagel

I have often wondered what atheists like this hope to gain in their arguments and actions.  I have no problem with their “non-belief”, that is certainly their choice and, as an American, though I disagree with them,  I would defend their right to have that “non-belief.”  However, I think we, as a nation, must draw a line in the sand when their “un-belief” threatens the very core values of this great nation.

I will tell you what I think is the real root of this effort.  The real “opium of the people” is not religion as Karl Marx stated, but instead it is, as stated by Nobel laureate Czeslaw Milosz, “a belief in nothingness after death.”   This belief would certainly have to be much less frightening to immoral people than the belief that their betrayals, greed, cowardice, murders and other assorted sins will be judged when their life on earth has ended.  

I think this is why people seek to free themselves from God and Christianity.  If you chose to live an immoral life, then God is essentially your mortal enemy.  He represents a very real threat to those who are selfish, greedy, lecherous, or filled with hatred.  It would certainly seem to be in the best interests of such people to despise and ridicule the belief in God and do what ever they could to rid our nation of His presence.

If God could be stamped out of existance by these people, then the seven deadly sins are no longer, as Dinesh D’Souza writes, “terrors to be overcome, but temptations to be enjoyed.”  Death is no longer a justification for morality … it is now a justification for immorality. 

Nietzsche understood this.  The death of God would allow us to escape guilt and live “beyond good and evil.”  In Nietzsche’s scheme, man would kill God to achieve the freedom to create his own morality.  This line of thinking, though toned down, can be found in many of Christopher Hitchens’ railings against Christianity.

And, it really seems to boil down to a simple concept … sex.  Hitchens wrote that “the divorce between the sexual life and fear … can now at last be attempted on the sole condition that we banish all religions from the discourse.”  

Now, I am not a prude by any stretch of the imagination and I certainly am not against sex … and incidently, neither is God.  However, God does put some thoughtful limitations on when, and with whom, sex should be had.  The “sexual revolution” has left its scar on many people’s lives.  Unwanted pregnancies, sexually transmitted diseases, younger and younger single mothers, ill-advised marriages, etc.   Today we even have the ACLU defending such repulsive organizations as NAMBLA … and criminal judges issuing “slap-on-the-wrist” sentences for heinous child abuse, molestation, and rape cases.  Could Dinesh D’Sousa be correct when he writes that the orgasm has become today’s secular sacrament.   I think, sadly, maybe he is. 

What happens when you remove the horribly old, out-dated, Christianity inflicted, moral restraints surrounding sex … such as waiting until you are married?  You often get unwanted pregnancies.  Could it be simply a strange coincidence that this leads us to the next most important sacrament in the secular world; one very near and dear the to atheistic left-wing liberal’s heart … abortion.

To me, the real tragedy and horror connected to an abortion is not that a woman kills an unborn child.  It is that a woman kills her own unborn child.  I cannot help but think that the feelings of guilt associated with doing this to ones own child must be nearly unbearable for any morally healthy person.  Therefore … it would then become necessary, for the good of all immoral people in the country, for atheists to lead the way and free people from the guilt associated with abortions.  And how is this done?  By completing the following steps:

  1. Get rid of God … that way there is no soul of the dead child to bother the conscience and, no threat of going to Hell for the act of murder.
  2. Define the fetus as being “not yet human” …  hmmmmm, sound familiar?

Not really too far from opening the door to eugenics, euthanasia and infanticide are we?  In this atheistic new nation, under nothing, with no inalienable rights, and with an immoral system of morality, Hell on earth might be just around the corner folks … wait and see. 

I think D’Sousa is right.  Although they like to point to science as their guiding star, atheism is actually not an intellectual revolt at all, it is a immoral revolt.  Atheists do not find God invisible, they find Him objectionable.  The atheist simply seeks to rid himself of any later moral judgment by eliminating the judge.

Fortunately, contrary to what they would have you believe, not all scientists agree with atheistic claims of having the real truth. I leave you with this quote from one rather well-known scientist … often erroneously quoted by many atheists:

“In the view of such harmony in the cosmos which I, with my limited human mind, am able to recognise, there are yet people who say there is no God.  But what makes me really angry is that they quote me for support for such views.”

~ Albert Einstein

Bits & Pieces Of Liberal Nonsense

OF COURSE THERE IS NO LIBERAL PRESS BIAS!

Liberal Media Bias

Or … do you think it is merely an oversight that the fact that Eliot Spitzer is a DEMOCRAT has not been repeatedly stressed in the media? Not that I am condoning or excusing republican sex scandals! We need to hold all our politicians to a higher standard!

But so much was made of the fact that it was a Republican sex scandal, and I simply do not see the same loud general media condemnation of the Democratic sex scandal.

Heidi Fleiss

Even the former Hollywood Madam, Heidi Fleiss, who at the young age of 27 was already running a prostitution empire netting $10 million a year from clients like Charlie Sheen, joined a chorus calling for Spitzer’s resignation Tuesday.

“How can you be in office, when you’re so misleading?” Fleiss said. “You have to adhere to different standards, first of all, when you’re in office … and he was very aggressive in pursuing prostitution rings, which we know in this instance seems like adults doing adult things.”

The Associated Press, quoting unnamed law enforcement officials, said Spitzer’s running tab for the trysts could have been as high as $80,000. Earlier Tuesday, the New York Post reported that Spitzer has been soliciting prostitutes at least since 2002, according to unnamed sources.

Has anybody reported yet whether it was his money or taxpayer money?

Eliot Spitzer has announced he will resign effective Monday, March 17.

Still Reaping What We Sow!

Joe Condom

The news reported last night that a new study shows that 1 out of 4 teenage girls (thats over 3 million) between the ages of 14 and 19 have an STD.

According to studies, Middle school children are having intercourse as young as 11 years old. Is it just me, or does 11 years old seem just a bit shy of an appropriate age for intercourse? I don’t think I had even made it to second base by then. In fact, I don’t even think most 11-year-old girls had a second base.

According to an op-ed in the New York Times, Republicans in Congress are attempting to add $28M to the State Children’s Health Insurance bill that was vetoed by the president. The money was to go specifically to teaching abstinence.

The editorial states that some studies show that abstinence doesn’t work, and abstinence programs teach false information. (Of course … an op-ed is an opinion piece and it was the New York Times … after all.)
Other studies show it does work!

And … how exactly does abstinence not work? Let me see, if you don’t have sex …

  • You don’t get pregnant!
  • You don’t catch an STD!
  • You don’t become a young single mother on welfare!
  • You don’t get an abortion at age 15!

Is abstinence hard to teach our children and to get them to follow … sure … but why?

Could it possibly have anything to do with the fact that our whacko liberal public education systems teach 8th graders to put condoms on bananas instead of how to read and write,

or that parents cannot discipline their children anymore because of the fear of going to jail for spanking an out-of-control child that will not go to “time out,”

or that some liberal nut cases think that 13-year-old girls should be able to get abortions on demand without any parental consent or notification?

Abstinence is taught at home by parents who impart moral values, a sense of right and wrong, and feelings of self-respect to their children.

Will some children still have sex before they should … of course!

But … 1 in 4 teenage girls with a STD … think about it!

If you can’t see the connection here … you are not as intelligent as you think you are!

Liberals aren’t racist … are they?

Liberals would never stereotype conservatives … that would be very un-liberal of them … now wouldn’t it? Liberals are very non-judgmental and open-minded aren’t they?

American Conservatives

That is almost hysterical!

But who actually favors affirmative action, quotas, categorizing race on applications for jobs, school, etc. …. liberals do!

Who said Obama is only winning in the democratic race because he is Black … a liberal said that!

These are the very same people who are always calling Republicans and conservatives racists.

Sure there are some extremest right-wing ne0-Nazi racist groups out there … and they are certainly racist and I despise and their hate driven agenda …

but rank and file conservatives are not generally racist.

Rank and file liberals are, on the other hand, seem to me to be generally racist, … and with a hate driven agenda … an unbridled, uncompromising hate for conservative Americans … who by they way, are the largest majority of Americans (outside of Berkeley, California and maybe New York City).

This liberal racism is why the University of Tennessee, for example, has a Black Student Cultural Center, a Society of Black Engineers, and a special $100 cash “gift” for Black students to use to buy books at the bookstore.

Could you imagine the outrage by liberals if there was a movement to start a Society of White Engineers?

I don’t understand why all student engineers (Black, White, Indian, Chinese, German, or purple with green polka-dotted) can’t be in the same engineering society?  That would be true racial equality … but those tolerant liberals simply won’t tolerate that!  They have to have all those neat little racially defined categories to make them “feel good” … don’t they!

Impeach George W Bush Now!

George McGovern

Why I Believe Bush Must Go
Nixon Was Bad. These Guys Are Worse.

By George McGovern
Sunday, January 6, 2008; B01

As we enter the eighth year of the Bush-Cheney administration, I have belatedly and painfully concluded that the only honorable course for me is to urge the impeachment of the president and the vice president.

After the 1972 presidential election, I stood clear of calls to impeach President Richard M. Nixon for his misconduct during the campaign. I thought that my joining the impeachment effort would be seen as an expression of personal vengeance toward the president who had defeated me.

Today I have made a different choice.

What is even more interesting to me is the fact that the Washington Post actually provides a forum for this nut. And not just the Washington Post … the entire media.

This “McGovern calls for Bush impeachment” story just broke a few days ago, and it has spread like wildfire across the internet. I did a google search and whammo, tens of thousands of hits.

I know that most of this lunacy can be chalked up to the power of the internet, but for some to treat this story as if it were an actual news story that deserves this level of attention, is simply ridiculous.

I mean … come on folks … really! A long-time, partisan, far leftist-liberal Democrat calls for the impeachment of a Republican president? Like that’s a big surprise!
