There is No War on Religion, It’s on Christianity!

By | August 19, 2014

Let me start by saying, I understand that there is a physical war In the Middle East on Jews. But what I am dealing with here is the on-going war in this country on Christians.

You separation-of-church-and-state people seem to be very silent on favors provided to other religions, yet start foaming at the mouth when the words “cross,” “Bible,” “Christ,“or any scriptures are used.

A few weeks ago, the Freedom from Religion Freaks (aka: Freedom from Religion Foundation – FFRF) lost a lawsuit they filed against the 9/11 Memorial Museum. They claimed that displaying the cross that was left at the bottom of the rubble (not manmade) that served as a symbol of hope to the first responders, Jews, Christians, Atheists and others during that tragedy was a clear violation of the separation of church and state. Once again, they were wrong.

The courts sided with the American people and said that not only was it a symbol of hope, but it was part of our national heritage and history. They said, “[Given] the absence of any evidence of ulterior religious motives, and the undisputed historical significance of The Cross at Ground Zero, we conclude that, as a matter of law, the record compels the conclusion that the actual purpose of displaying the cross in the September 11 Museum is a genuine secular interest in recounting the history of extraordinary events.”. One of the arguments from the atheist group was that the cross caused “dyspepsia” to some of the plaintiffs who had to walk by it. My thought! Take some Pepto-Bismol. The “ailment” equates to an upset stomach.

Then there was the attempt to remove Bibles from U.S. Navy lodges around the globe. The group claimed that offering Bibles to guests constituted an endorsement of a religion so they needed to be removed. I’ve never heard of anyone walking up and down the lodge halls screaming, “Get your Bibles here, brand new never opened, get ‘em while there free.” Nope, not one complaint about Bibles being pushed on anyone. They’re in a drawer in each room given free of charge by the Gideon’s. The people complaining are not being honest. If it was an issue of religious freedom, then let’s put the Bible, Quran, Torah, dictionary, or whatever religious text we can get our hands on in those drawers and let them chose what to read or not read. Nope. They only complained that the Bible needed to go. Navy brass came to their senses and backed down because of the outcry of the many as opposed to doing what a very few loud mouths wanted.

In a small town in Georgia, the atheist group threatened to file suit against a school because the kids were praying before football games. They said they had received “a” complaint from a single, unnamed parent. The atheist group was not from the community. They didn’t know who they were playing with. Remember, we are supposed to have a representative government, not a government of the smallest and loudest. Well, these people got a taste of southern law. Over 200 people showed up to support the teams in prayer. And they prayed before the game. No one exploded. No one went into convulsions. And no lighting struck any one of them. All was well in that little Georgia town. The atheists are all legalled-up and ready for battle. Why? Why does something that supposedly doesn’t exist make them so crazy? Why can’t they respect the wishes of the masses instead of the wishes of a few?
