Atheists are unhappy that its Christmas time again…


If I said the earth was flat and
spent my time convincing others of the same would that change anything about the earth’s shape?

Denying the existence of God changes nothing. The attacks on Christianity are a reflection of a rising cultural illiteracy that plagues this nation.

Our founding documents mean nothing without morality and justice. Those precepts are rooted in faith.

We entertain the wind of these atheist fools at our own peril.

    Dear Stacy,

    I’m an atheist. I have put considerable time and thought into exploring many different faiths and finally came to believe as I do.

    I don’t foist my lack of faith off onto others, nor do I insult others for their beliefs. I quietly go about my life with the philosophy of live and let live.

    However lumping all atheists together and labeling us “fools” is an insult I cannot tolerate. How would you feel if I lumped all Christians in with the Westboro Baptist Church?

    I think an apology is deserved.

      Hello Mr. Saxenmeyer:

      I appreciate your not wanting to be lumped in with militant atheists. My characterization of people that refuse to acknowledge the existence of God as fools is Biblical, so I really can’t apologize for that.

      Your comparison of actual Christians with Westboro “Baptist Church” members isn’t a comparable one as those people aren’t actually Christians.

      The militants attacking Christmas and trying to eliminate all references to faith in public are actually atheists. Perhaps you should take this up with them as they may be misrepresenting what your belief system is. Hopefully this clears up any misunderstanding between us on this subject.

        Agh but the parishioners of Westboro Baptist feel that they are Christians and represent themselves as such. Just because you do not feel that they are does not change that fact.

        Also, to someone who has never read the bible (which I have and I understood the reference) the use of the word fools means only one thing. I would be willing to wager that even the majority of your fellows Christians would not have made the connection between the two.

          Eddy if you’ve really read the Bible you know that just saying: “I’m a Christian.” doesn’t make you one.

          Westboro members are a cult. Nothing more. They aren’t accurate representations of Christians. The only people that think of them as Christians besides themselves, are people that don’t like Christians!

          As far as my reference to fools here’s an explanation of my understanding of the verse in question:

          Question: “What does the Bible mean when it says “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God’”?”

          Answer: Both Psalm 14:1 and Psalm 53:1 read, “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’” Some take these verses to indicate that atheists are stupid, i.e., lacking intelligence. However, that is not the meaning of the Hebrew word translated “fool.” In this text, the Hebrew word is nabal, which refers more to a “moral fool,” e.g., someone without morals. The meaning of the text is not “unintelligent people do not believe in God.” Rather, the meaning of the text is “immoral people do not believe in God.”

          Many atheists are very intelligent. It is not intelligence, or a lack thereof, that leads a person to reject belief in God. It is a lack of morals that leads a person to reject belief in God. People do not reject the idea of there being a Creator Being. Rather, people reject the idea of there being a Creator Being who demands morality from His creation. In order to clear their consciences and relieve themselves of guilt, people reject the idea of God as the only source of absolute morality. Doing so allows atheists to live however they choose—as morally or as immorally as they desire—with no feelings of guilt for their refusal to be accountable to God.

          So it isn’t a matter of intelligence, rather its a matter of morality. And I know other Christians who think the same thing: denying the existence of God is the activity of fools.

            So now I’m not moral? How dare you say that to me without knowing anything about me! Just because a book that YOU follow say so does not make it so, anymore than words in the Koran, the Bagada-Vita, the Book of Mormon, or any one of a hundred other religious texts make something “the Word of God” does.

            I usually enjoy reading the e-mails I receive from you Stacy, but right now you are just as guilty of claiming your beliefs are superior to mine as militant atheists are in doing the same.

            I’m disappointed.

            Many people around the world claim that Christianity as a whole is just a cult. Same with Islam, Buddhism, Taoism, Hinduism, and all other religions.

            Just because of the actions of the lunatic fringe you do not have any right to judge, just as I try not to do. After all didn’t your saviour say “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone”? If I prove to be wrong than my lack of faith is between God and myself and has nothing to do with your abundance of faith.

            I can see that you do not feel that insulting millions of Atheists and Agnostics who have done nothing to interfere in how you celebrate your religious holidays is ok. Instead you claim the moral high ground of promoting your religion. And you call yourself a conservative? I thought our party was a big tent thaat had room for many people of diversity. Your Christian snobbery is why I am seriously considering abandoning the GOP for the first time since 1980 when I was 10 and fell in love with Reagan’s brand of conservatism.

            We have a philosophical disagreement which you are taking very personally. No one will ever agree with 100% of what I post. Getting upset isn’t going to change my mind, and I’m not trying to change yours.

            I’ve explained the reasoning behind the post. I’m going to leave it at that.
