Is the “Freedom From Religion Foundation” Really Free?
It doesn’t seem free at all to me. Free to be glum, free to glower, free to spit in the eye of religion…the problem with Atheists is they aren’t FOR anything. They’re the among the most negative, contrary people I’ve met. This sign is a perfect example of what I’m talking about. Instead of celebrating great secular minds, or creating a holiday celebrating “the winter solstice” or any other happening of their choosing, they spend their time and money making a sign to drag down and attack other’s beliefs.
They proclaim every year during the holiday season that they’re “Free From Religion”, but how free can they be? These doom-and-gloomers celebrate their beliefs by raining on other people’s parades! If the best thing they’ve got going for them is this sign, that’s a pretty sad statement.
Advice to the Atheists: build your own parade! Find some happiness! Good grief.
Atheists’ National Holiday?
by Chuck Norris
Atheists from England to the West Coast of America are stepping up their efforts this year to make a bigger antagonistic splash on the Christmas scene. From London and Washington, D.C., buses to Colorado billboards, skeptics are skewering religions with little respect to the adherents of the religions.
At the forefront is a group’s government-sanctioned posting of a sign by a Nativity scene in the Capitol of Washington state (and now also in Wisconsin and Illinois): “At this season of THE WINTER SOLSTICE may reason prevail. There are no gods, no devils, no angels, no heaven or hell. There is only our natural world. Religion is but myth and superstition that hardens hearts and enslaves minds.”
I am a patriot, and I believe that atheists are free to believe, speak and post whatever they want. This is America, and that’s their First Amendment right. But to do so with harassment and hatred under the guise of free speech is despicable. An anti-religious poster filled with spite is in no way equal to a religious symbol, such as a Nativity scene. Where are the political correctness police when religious followers are the victims?
