…But It Helps.
Go read this brilliant piece by Kurt Schlister. A small sampling to whet your appetite
There’s nothing like the holidays for laughing at anti-religious malcontents being driven to madness by the thought of Christians and Jews celebrating their faiths. Crosses, menorahs, happy people with satisfying personal lives – these things drive the militant atheists into a sputtering rage.
Watching them fume is the gift that keeps on giving.
Normal atheists just don’t believe in God, and those of us who do, figure that’s between them. They respect our religion and we respect their right to have no part of it. Sure, some religious folks talk to people about their faith, but it’s not clear why someone advocating his beliefs to another is committing a terrible faux pas. After all, the believer believes he’s trying to do the recipient a favor. The proper response if one is uninterested isn’t exaggerated indignation but a polite, “No thanks.”
That’s how things should work in a pluralistic society where people believe different things. Sometimes you come into contact with people who don’t share your ideas. We call that “diversity” – not the bogus “crush all opposition to progressivism” diversity of the left but real American diversity. The key is not to be a jerk – that goes for both the person sharing his views and the person hearing them.
But jerkiness is the difference between the decent guy who’s just not feeling the connection with the Lord and the smug militant atheist who thinks that putting a fish sticker with legs that says “Darwin” on his Prius is biting social commentary.
Especially, it seems if we are in an elevator. Stacy McCain has the sordid details
First, it seems that Rebecca Watson rates as the total smokin’ hotness of atheist chickdom. Atheist guys get all torqued up when they see awkward nerd chicks with magenta-tinted hair, and Rebecca’s been driving ‘em wild with her weekly online videos.
Second, why did Watson feel the need to lecture the world of atheist guys about how it “creeps me out and makes me uncomfortable when men sexualize me in that manner”? Here is the failed pick-up line that triggered it:
“Don’t take this the wrong way, but I find you very interesting, and I would like to talk more. Would you like to come to my hotel room for coffee?”
And this offended her? Good grief. Go read the rest at The Other McCain. As an aside, I guess this means my plans to score with hot Atheist chicks by hanging out in elevators is foiled! DAMN!
I would really love someone to point out the provision protecting us from offense. And if they can’t, then they should shut the Hell up and stop trying to make everyone else suffer! This story, from Montana, has the latest tale of leftist whining and angst. It seems a statue of Jesus has caused one Atheist to contract a bad case of GODitis (a severe reaction to any mention of God, Jesus, Christmas, Christmas Trees, Santa Claus, Christmas parades, Christmas ornaments, the colors red and green, Frosty the Snowman, Rudloph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Bibles, crosses, intersections, (they look like crosses), church, Christianity, or manger scenes!)
A lawsuit seeking the removal of a Jesus statue near a Montana ski resort will go on after a national group of atheists and agnostics produced a local member who says he is offended by the religious symbol whenever he swooshes down the slopes.
The Knights of Columbus and four individuals had asked a judge to throw out the legal challenge because the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation had not named anyone actually harmed by the statue on federal land next to Whitefish Mountain Resort.
Without such a person, the Knights of Columbus argued, the foundation had no right to bring the lawsuit.
So the foundation found William Cox, an atheist who lives 15 miles from the northwestern Montana resort. Cox submitted a statement that says he frequently goes to Whitefish and has skied many times past the statue, which he considers religious and offensive.
That was good enough for U.S. District Judge Dana Christensen to deny the Knights of Columbus’ request Tuesday and to proceed with the lawsuit. A trial is scheduled for March.
“I could just say, `Hallelujah,”‘ Annie Laurie Gaylor, co-president of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, said Wednesday. “It was very obliging of the judge to let it proceed.”
Did she just say Hallelujah? Isn’t that hypocritical? Seriously though, what lunacy is this? I apologize for my simple view of such cases but the constitution is very clear on freedom of religion. It says Congress “shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or the free exercise thereof”. That statue was not placed by an act of Congress, that statue does not respect any religious establishment, and NO, there never has been a right NOT to be offended. Because if there is, I should sue the soulless weasels at the Freedom From Religion Foundation because they piss me off!
Just to be clear, I find it odd that the FFRF is not aware that they already are “free” from religion, it is right there in the constitution they are actively trying to erode. Maybe they are not aware that one person’s freedom from activity does not mean others have no right to that activity. Many people watch reality shows, and I despise reality shows. So, I do not watch them, simple! I would never seek a court to take those shows from others to protect my sensitivity!
One more note. If you observe those few Atheists that take part in the Fascist campaigns like this one, you will note that they are always screeching about Christians trying to “force” their views on others. Really? I think it is clear who is trying to force their views on others here! That is how thugs are. And yes these are thugs, nothing more.
A Christian prayer by a city councillor at a City of Saskatoon volunteer appreciation dinner discriminated against non-Christians, says a volunteer who intends to complain to the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission.
Ashu Solo, a member of the city’s cultural diversity and race relations committee, was among the guests at the dinner Wednesday, where Coun. Randy Donauer said a blessing over the food in which he mentioned Jesus and ended with “amen.”
“It made me feel like a second-class citizen. It makes you feel excluded,” said Solo, who is an atheist.
“It’s ironic that I’ve now become a victim of religious bigotry and discrimination at this banquet that was supposed to be an appreciation banquet for the service of volunteers like me.”
No Ashu, you are a victim of your own over-inflated sense of self-importance and your own love of playing the victim! People like you deserve to spend a month in a country that REALLY discriminates and oppresses people. Then you might appreciate what freedom REALLY is!
I seldom, if ever post anything that warms the hearts of Liberals, but, this picture, of Stacy McCain, will make Liberals cheer.
That is, of course, until they remember that they do not believe in Hell, because by believing in Hell, they would also believe in God. This might offend an atheist, and Liberals NEVER wish to offend Atheists at all. Liberals LOVE Atheists, but hate Stacy McCain, and me, because Stacy, and I, and others like us deeply offend the Left on a daily basis. We offend them by telling the truth, which REALLY offends Liberals because the truth interferes with a Liberal’s feelings based, bumper sticker ideology of convenience. So, by posting this picture, I am really DEEPLY offending Liberals, which I am known to do quite often.
