Under God! REALLY?

In the continuing saga of the attack on religion the lefties are at it again. You know that same group who tried to remove God from their platform and failed! Remember them? Well, they just won’t go away. Like a bad rash in the hot summer.
My home state of Massachusetts again has decided to waist MEGA taxpayer bucks fighting the words “Under God” in our Pledge of Allegiance. So what’s the big whup?
To my Christian friends. DO you really Think the Term One Nation Under God really means anything? A nation that sanctions killing babies in the womb, When if we were under God would protect the unborn, A nation that sanctions same sex marriage (a religious institution) When the God’s word is very clearly against it. YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST… Next will be legalization of polygamy, then lowering the age of consent and then only the Looney legislators know.
A nation that pushes it citizens to trust in the government and not God. My bible says God is my sufficiency not Almighty America, Or Almighty “place government name here”.
No people the words mean nothing, telling your wife you love her as you beat her at least once a week are just lies and empty words. To my Christian friends come out of the closet and stand up with God and HE stood up for you!
Now back to the Massachusetts nut jobs wasting tax payer dollars. You see the Massachusetts Supreme court will be ruling on Doe v. Action-Boxborough Regional School District and whether the pledge violates students’ rights. THE NEW ANGLE, “Students rights” YUP you see this battle has been lost several times around the country in many federal courts. BUT they have used the non-existent separation of church and state laws. This time they are using the infringement of student rights (I could do a book on the infringement on conservative students rights).

Interesting enough every time a conservative group mentions taking up the issue of roe vs wade we are told by the left “It’s a done deal, set down in law you cant bring it back”
Well… shouldn’t you lefties have to drink your own medicine?

Remember that guy who though he was speaking for all American, Michael Newdow?
Our very own United States Supreme Court the one that the lefties fell in love with when they basically held up Obamacare refused to hear an appeal of a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the Pledge of Allegiance in January of 2011. The decision ended a seven-year battle over the Pledge’s inclusion of the words “under God,”. They were in reference to two separate cases, one originating in California and the other in New Hampshire.
Both brought by Mr Newdow. (too bad he didn’t have to pay for them)
The Supreme Court rejected the argument that saying the Pledge of your own free will creates an official state religion,” I guess the left doesn’t understand the meaning of FREE WILL, because they work so hard at taking it away they must perceive it as a bad thing. Look many children don’t stand during the pledge, Kids of religions that don’t allow them to pledge to anyone but God also don’t get involved. Id these loons would actually go out on campus and interview the kids they would find there is no problem. The stigma of not saying the pledge doesn’t exist anymore, in all actuality your kinds considered a goof if you actually do it. If these people could get out of their offices and actually do some research they would see this is a non issue.
The Very Liberal lefty loons, who have on more than one occasion reversed themselves, The Ninth Circuit in California upheld the constitutionality of the Pledge in March 2010 and the Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal of the California case in March 2011. The First Circuit then upheld the constitutionality of the Pledge in November 2011 and the Supreme Court refused to listen to that case as well.
THINK THEY ARE SENDING A MESSAGE?
Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson of the Knights of Columbus, pointed out that his organization was “instrumental” in getting the words “under God” added to the pledge in 1954.
Those words “express a fundamental belief that we have held as a nation since our founding, that we ‘are endowed by our creator with certain unalienable rights,’” he said. “The notion that this somehow violates the First Amendment has now been soundly rejected by both the First and Ninth Circuit Courts of Appeal, and the Supreme Court has now allowed both decisions to stand. What else do you people need.
You blast conservatives for fighting for the right of the unborn using science, not God or the great Universal Spirit but science. Letting us know that abortion on demand has been settled in the Court.
Well guess what… Under God, has been settled in the court, now MANY times. Get over yourselves..
Christians and conservatives stop with the lip service and do something!

Militant atheist

Been noticing a lot of God hatred lately. Fine by me if someone believes or if they don’t. Really couldn’t care less. But it is the Atheists that push that if a person believes in God that somehow equates to ignorance, stupidity, backwardness. As if by being an Atheist is somehow an enlightened person and has become a superior over all others by just not believing.

I call BS.

I would say that anyone that has an attitude of superiority such as that had better look into the mirror and face their own demons, there may be something wrong with their life perceptions and self esteem. Not believing in a God has no bearing on intelligence whatsoever; just as we all know that a certificate on the wall does not really mean a person is smart. Wisdom is gained by experiences. One group feeling they have superiority over another has a word; bigotry.

Now the other people I truly have a problem with are those that dedicate their time to belittling and attempting to convert people to Atheism. I have to ask, how dare you? What business is it to you what a person takes into their hearts and minds and chooses to believe? Now you can say religions attempt conversions, and you would be absolutely correct, however I have yet to have a Mormon I turn away from my door exclaim how stupid I must be for not wanting to believe as he does.

I believe in free will as a natural state of humanity, it is no one’s place to push their God or anti-God views upon me. To push, force, belittle, tower over, or intimidate. Anyone that does from either side is no better than the others which they oppose. That is my mind on the issue, and I continue to find it odd that militant Atheists do not even see their own hypocrisy on the matter.

Now it is no secret to my friends or readers that I am an Ayn Rand fan and have had many mini discussions on the compatibility of Objectivism and Religion. I say they are, for it is not the person’s personal beliefs and the choices involved that are not compatible. It is the religious man-corruption that is not to be mixed. It is the corruption of the ideas put forth from mans early basic sense of self, natural rights, and advancement twisted by religious leaders for power and control. It is when one man takes advantage of a weaker mans mind for control that is against Natural Law.

If the Looters of Christianity would drive home “God helps those which help themselves,” the world would be that much stronger. Instead we get those seeking more and more alms.

I would also point out that the moment any believer in Objectivism can no longer tolerate anyone else’s mind they have lost the lessons. No one man(kind) may hold power over another, which is just basic Rand.

This applies very much to the Atheist with a superiority complex, the moment an Atheist believes he has become a more evolved being is when he became a full hypocrite and transcended into exactly what he perceives people of religion are.

In Galts speech he points out the use of religion to siphon off free will, desires and to make one sacrifice himself for the greater good; that greater good usually meaning the coffers of the Church, Mosque, Synagogue etc. In today’s America it also means the government and political ideals. Liberal ideals.

Our government today has become the master of forced sacrifice for the sake of others. All in the effort of buying votes from the Looters, to BUY POWER. The Looters benefit by taking from the Producers. This in turn facilitates the increase of forced sacrifice via the government tax-whip.

I would have to ask, does anyone believe if tomorrow the world became completely wiped clean of religion that mankind would be altered? I doubt it myself; there will still be the same issues of power and those that will use force against other men for power and controls. Look to those that wish to destroy religion, their own action to control humanity and turn us from being individuals to being a collective.

Where is the “all trust worthy” scientific community that spent the last 15 years lying to the world about global warming in order to facilitate the world wide Cap and Trade redistribution of wealth scheme to turn the lighted parts of the globe back into the dark ages? Should we trust them any more than a man behind a podium or calling to prayer into a minaret? I would say no, because even the most trained mind in logic has proven to be no guard at all against greed and pursuit of power. Having an education and self proclaimed sense of enlightenment does not create humanity, it works to control and dictate.

Where is the scientific mind? We have people in science telling us that forced reduction in population is needed. Do I have to tell you what forced reduction spells out to be? If I do: It means murder, infanticide, forced abortions, culling the herd. Where is the Liberal scientific advanced thought process that cannot care less about a baby in the womb? Heartbeats, brainwaves no matter, kill it if you want. Is that really the resulting thought process of an advanced mind? Or of an indifferent killer? Are they of the kind of mind that would cry for kittens while advocating death to a human fetus?

We have an entire last century with millions murdered in the effort to stifle religion. For power over men’s minds millions have been wiped off the earth. I gave this point to a friend and he gave me a list of individuals that are/were atheists. It is not about individuals, it is about regimes and governments. Using atheism to murder the opposing thoughts; that belief in any other power besides than the government is worthy of a Death Sentence.

Now here would come the usual point of, “that is what religions has done in for centuries to convert humanity,” and yes, it is true. When was the last Crusade, Spanish Inquisitions? Again I would point out that those were all about power for men. God was the tool. Force the implementation.

Today it is the environment and politics, for example, how many millions have died from malaria because of DDT no longer being allowed? Malaria: what a shame in today’s world to die from that disease when it is entirely preventable. All in the name of unproven science, millions of people have died. But at least those that wanted the ban can feel good about saving some minnows, maybe.

So, how does one group hold sway over the other? They don’t, nor should they. Anyone that wants to believe that they have the right to hold power over any other person or group, often with disgusting smugness, well, again, look into the mirror and study your own self first. For it is easy to point out flaws and folly on either side of the fences.

What I can tell you is that the moment that any person or group that begins to attempt to live my life for me, or to put mine and my families lives in danger, well, they had better expect the same in kind.

A long time ago I had a girlfriend that smoked, when being hassled by non-smokers she would say, “I don’t try to make you start so don’t try to make me stop.”

If that is not a universal basis for mutual respect nothing is.

Atheists ‘Going Public’ Has Some Christians Hot Under the Collar

BANNOCKBURN, Ill., July 19, 2011 — From eye-catching billboards that proclaim, “I can be good without God,” to a critically acclaimed movie at the Sundance Film Festival, atheists are going public with their beliefs like never before. This has some Christians hot under the collar, but the leader of one of America’s leading evangelistic ministries is urging believers to keep their cool.

Public opinion polling shows that the number of Americans who are unaffiliated with any religion is growing rapidly. Alpha USA president Gerard Long, called one of the “stars of the church-saving circuit” by The Washington Post, is encouraging Christians to direct their time and resources toward giving people opportunities to hear and experience the teachings of Jesus Christ.

“One of the main purposes of the church is to serve and love people outside of its membership,” Long notes. “We’ve got to focus on the work God called us to, loving people and giving them a safe environment to hear and investigate the teachings of Jesus. Jesus himself was always asking people questions, and Alpha encourages people to wrestle with the big questions of life such as, ‘What happens when I die?’”

Alpha will also be going public this fall with a national ad campaign in more than 500 cities. Using everything from bumper stickers and yard signs to billboards and buses, the ads will ask people to consider: “If you could ask God one question, what would you ask?”

More than 30,000 individuals are expected to respond to Alpha’s national “Invitation” to consider the teachings of Jesus, including many atheists and agnostics.

Cejaye Bjarnason grew up not believing in God, but in her 20s had a change of heart as a result of Alpha. She recalls, “I thought church people lived in a make-believe world, and they were going to have a rude awakening when the end of their days came.”

But one day, Bjarnason reluctantly agreed to go to church with a friend. There, she learned about the Alpha course, a 10-week exploration of the teachings of Jesus that answers questions about God, the meaning of life and more: “Everyone was friendly and welcoming. The course made me open my ears, and I asked Jesus into my life. Now, I pray every day. I have let go of my anger … I feel like the Grinch at the end of my favorite Christmas movie. My heart is growing bigger every day.”

Since 1997, Alpha USA has seen more than three million people take the Alpha course. The number of U.S. churches using Alpha has more than doubled in the last two years alone, with more than 4,700 churches representing all major denominations now running the course.
