The new heroes within the secular movement are coming from unlikely places — like the pulpit. Above, Jerry DeWitt, an atheist, at a church where he once preached.
... Not long ago, the atheist movement was the preserve of a few eccentric gadflies like Madalyn Murray O’Hair, whose endless lawsuits helped earn her the title “the most hated woman in America.” But over the past decade it has matured into something much larger and less cranky. In March of this year, some 20,000 people marched through a cold drizzle at the “Reason Rally” in Washington, billed as a political debut for the movement. A string of best-selling atheist polemics by the “four horsemen” — Hitchens and Dawkins, as well as Sam Harris and Daniel Dennett — has provided new intellectual fuel. Secular-themed organizations and clubs have begun to permeate small-town America and college campuses, helping to foot the bill for bus and billboard ad campaigns with messages like “Are You Good Without God? Millions Are.”
The reasons for this secular revival are varied, but it seems clear that the Internet has helped, and many younger atheists cite the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks as a watershed moment of disgust with religious zealotry in any form.THE NYTIMES - AND THE LEFT - ARE DELIBERATELY CONFLATING ATHEISM WITH SECULARISM TO MAKE IT SEEM AS IF ANTI-RELIGIOUS VIEWS ARE AS MUCH PART OF OUR NATIONAL HERITAGE AS SECULARISM IS.
OUR NATION WAS FOUNDED FOR RELIGIOUS FREEDOM - AND FREEDOM TO BE RELIGIOUS, NOT FOR FREEDOM FROM RELIGION.
And when they write this crap - " ... many younger atheists cite the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks as a watershed moment of disgust with religious zealotry in any form... " - they make a false moral equivalence between all religions.
ALL RELIGIONS ARE NOT THE SAME - NOT FUNCTIONALLY, NOT STRUCTURALLY AND NOT MORALLY.
EQUATING JUDEO-CHRISTIANITY WITH ISLAMISM OR PAGANISM OR BUDDHISM IS INTELLECTUALLY DISHONEST AND FACTUALLY INCORRECT.
THE POSTMODERN LEFT'S WAR ON RELIGION IS PART OF THEIR GRAMSCIAN AGENDA - PART OF THEIR "CULTURE WAR" STRATEGY TO DEMOLISH EVERYTHING THAT STANDS IN THE WAY OF THEIR "UTOPIAN NANNYSTATE".
- THIS GRAMSCIAN AGENDA IS THE ROOT CAUSE OF THEIR OIKOPHOBIA - THEIR HATRED OF OUR CIVILIZATION, AND XENOPHILIA FOR ANYTHING NON-WESTERN.
- THEY HAVE MANAGED TO CAPTURE MANY GENERATIONS OF IDEALISTIC YOUTHS BY CONVINCING THEM THE WEST IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL IN THE WORLD - WHICH DOVETAILS NICELY WITH THE JIHADIST AGENDA.
- THIRD WORLD POVERTY;
- AN IMPENDING (AND IMAGINARY) GLOBAL CLIMATE CATASTROPHE;
- ALL SEXUAL REPRESSION - AND FOR PERPETRATING THE "FALSE NOTION OF 'NORMALCY'";
- AND MOST OF HISTORY'S GENOCIDE.
(1) THIRD WORLD POVERTY IS A RESULT OF A LACK OF INDUSTRIALIZATION - ITSELF CAUSED BY LEFTIST INDUSTRIAPHOBIA.
(2) CLIMATE CHANGE IS NATURAL, AND THERE IS NO WARMING CURRENTLY OR IN THE LAST DECADE THAT IS OUTSIDE THE WARMING/COOLING RANGES IN GEOLOGICAL HISTORY.
(3) THERE IS SUCH A THING AS NORMAL AND DEVIANT - NO MATTER HOW HARD THE POSTMODERNISTS TRY TO DUMB DEVIANCY DOWN. AND SEXUAL LIBERTINAGE IS NOT LIBERTARIAN.
(4) MOST OF THE WEST'S GENOCIDE WAS PERPETRATED BY LEFTISTS IN THE 20TH CENTURY - THEY KILLED MORE PEOPLE THAN JUDEO-CHRISTIANITY KILLED IN THE PRECEDING 19 CENTURIES ... COMBINED!
AND ISLAM KILLED MORE PEOPLE IN THE LAST 14 CENTURIES THAN LEFTISM AND JUDEO-CHRISTIANITY COMBINED!!
WE MUST USE THESE FACTS (EASILY FOOTNOTED AND FREQUENTLY POSTED ON IN THIS BLOG) TO DEMOLISH THE APPEAL OF LEFTISTS TO YOUNG IDEALISTS AND TO NEUTRALIZE THE LEFT'S ABILITY TO SHAPE EVENTS.
IT'S OUR PARAMOUNT TASK.
- IF WE WANT TO DEFEAT GLOBAL JIHAD AND ELIMINATE GLOBAL POVERTY, THEN WE MUST FIRST DEFEAT THE POSTMODERN LEFT.
LET'S START THIS NOVEMBER BY DEFEATING OBAMA - THE FIRST POSTMODERN LEFTIST PRESIDENT.
