Screw the ACLU and Radical Atheists

That is what a Montana school choir has said, although in far nicer terms

A Montana school choir is set to perform at a church despite calls from the American Civil Liberties Union and an atheist group to cancel the show, arguing that it violates the separation of church and state.

Kate Orozco, superintendent of the Whitefish school district, said Wednesday that it’s up to the dozen members of the high school’s choir to decide whether or not they want to perform at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Kalispell. But she added that the show, which is scheduled to take place Thursday night, would not be canceled.

“We would certainly not prohibit our kids from performing. We think the performance itself is a great experience for all of our kids and its volunteers,” she told KTMF.

A letter the ACLU of Montana sent to the district said the show “poses serious constitutional concerns and demonstrates a lack of respect.” Letters from other groups, including the Freedom From Religion Foundation, also called for the district to cancel the show.

Lack of respect they say? Perhaps they ought to tolerate to respect other people’s choices and liberties! The ACLU and the thugs at Freedom From Religion are bullies, and would be Statists.


Governor Rick Perry signs “Merry Christmas Bill” Atheist Actvists heads explode in 3,2,1…

More at The Blaze

At a signing event for the contentious “Merry Christmas Bill,” Texas Gov. Rick Perry had a message for atheist activists who have a penchant for sometimes taking church-state separatism to the extreme: The U.S. Constitution doesn’t guarantee “freedom from religion.”

There was no irony in his intentional statement, as the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), one of the prime organizations that launches lawsuits against faith in the public square, would patently disagree with his claim. After all, based on the group’s name, alone, its leaders would likely contend that freedom from theism should certainly be guaranteed for all Americans.

As The Blaze previously reported, the Merry Christmas bill will enable public school teachers to say “Merry Christmas” and “Happy Hanukkah” without fear of retribution starting during the 2013-2014 school year (read TheBlaze’s previous coverage of Texas’ Merry Christmas bill).

But it doesn’t only give these public servants the green light to wish their students well during the holidays; as stated, it also lets them display Christmas trees, nativity scenes and menorahs — all elements that have been known to draw the ire of non-theist activists. Of course, educators aren’t supposed to favor one faith. And any holiday display should have more than one religious view represented and should also showcase secular symbols.


Oh no! 41-year-old war memorial causes an outbreak of GODitis among a few hypersensitve Atheist whiners

The Freedom From Religion Foundation truly redefines the word classless

The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) is, once again, going after a memorial aimed at commemorating American lives lost in a combat zone. A Vietnam display in a park in Coos Bay, Ore., is the latest target of atheist activists who are committed to church-state separatism.

The memorial is comprised of a cross design, with a placard on its base. As is typically the case when a religious symbol is included in a memorial, the FFRF is claiming that the cross’ presence is unconstitutional.

I am so tired of malcontented brats like these pricks. They are nothing but bullies and bigots. I am also sick that any court would actually interpret the first amendment to side with them. The Constitution IN NO WAY constrains such a memorial on public land, the Constitution constrains Congress from recognizing a national religion or denying anyone the free exercise of their religion.

I am sorry, but where in the Constitution does a right not to be offended exist?

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.

Atheists File Civil Rights Complaint Against Florist | Jessica Ahlquist & FFRF | Video | TheBlaze.com

Via The Blaze.As I understand it a business reserves the right to refuse service to anyone.I should know, I have run restaurants, and have refused service to people at different times.Now, I never did it based on their religion, but it was done based on their actions. Sounds like these florists do not wish to do business with this brat based on her actions.What is really scary is the idea that a business might be FORCED to do business with people who they do not wish to.Again, the radical Left seeks to force their “religion” down others throats!

An age old axiom for polite discussion is that two topics one should always avoid at a dinner party are politics and religion. And this is the time of year where, especially of late, the end of the year Christmas cheer seems to come with a spirited discussion over religious iconography in the public square. In the following clip, Barker did not hedge in explaining why he found the nativity scene so offensive, saying it represented “an insult to human nature that we are all doomed and damned,” before being interrupted by a defensive, though polite Bolling, who tried to get the conversation back to the much less interesting discussion of how different local municipalities govern and free speech.

But Barker seemed eager to insult Christianity, saying again “what an insult that we are degraded to be praising the exact Jesus created a place of hell.” Bolling quickly interjected, reminding his guest that it was “his show” and that he would not abide having a guest denigrate the name of Jesus Christ on his show. Something about love thy enemy?

It is well past time that people stopped being polite or accommodating to Statists like Dan Barker. They are no better than the Klan, or any other hate group, and are intent on forcing their will on everyone else.
