I'm Sick Of Atheist's War On Christians And I'm Fighting Back!

The Christmas spirit might be alive and well around here, but I'm afraid that this year anger is also present.

Anger toward Atheists who for some reason feel entitled to try to ruin or mar Christmas for Christians in some way shape or form. And yes, I'm pretty sick of it!

I was in a store in town and heard some guy asking why Christmas was being supported by the city?

He wanted to know why the city pays its employees his tax dollars to put up lights and decorations on main street? He asked why, as a taxpayer, did he had have to pay for a Christmas tree lighting? He felt their should not be any involvement in a Christian holiday.

Since I was near enough, I asked the man, "Are you being serious or are you kidding?"

"I'm serious!" he said.

"So this your personal angst against Christmas? Are you a Muslim or Atheist? Or are you simply attacking a Christian holiday because you can in this country?"

He said he was "an Atheist and a taxpayer," and went on to tell me and a few others who gathered around him that "Christians in the town are violating the separation of church and state!"

I said "Christians violating what? The last time I checked, America accepts all religions - even those who preach hate for the United States. Besides," I asked, "where does it say anything about some supposed separation of church and state? Where does it say that a community cannot support a religious holiday?"

He said, "Haven't you ever heard of the U.S. Constitution?"

"I have, and unlike yourself - I've read it." I answered, "But the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights doesn't say anything about a separation between church and state."

The First Amendment of the United States Constitution states: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Now I'm no lawyer, but I can't find anywhere in the First Amendment that says there is this supposed separation between Church and State.

Fact is, in reality, I know damn well that the phrase, the metaphor of a wall, that gives a separation between church and state actually comes from the letters of Thomas Jefferson. But no, it is not in, nor does it come from, the Constitution of the United States.

Sure I know that we in reality have a separation between Church and State, this does not mean that it is OK for either government or individuals like Atheist to wage a war on Christians or any other religion.

Known as "the Establishment Clause," it solely prevents the establishing of a State run church like say the Church of England.

It does not say anything about our government not being able to publicly acknowledge God, or the existence of God, or the existence of a Supreme Being.

In fact, our government does do just that in many forms. From references to a Supreme Creator in our Declaration of Independence, to images of the Ten Commandments on the walls of the Supreme Court Of The United States, we see references to God and our Christian heritage everywhere.

The point is that our government only prohibits itself from establishing a "State Religion." It only stops our government from developing policies that encourage religious beliefs that favor one particular religion - but that's all it does.

It does not prohibit people from religious activity, it simply stops the government from choosing one religion over another.

To quote an e-mail from one of you, "By keeping government and religion separate, the establishment clause serves to protect the freedom of all to exercise their religion."

I believe that challenges could be made to allow religious symbols of all sorts from every religion on the public square.

As the same e-mail says, "The constitutional principle of separation of church and state does not purge religion from the public square - far from it. Indeed, the First Amendment's 'free exercise' clause assures that each individual is free to exercise and express his or her religious views - publicly as well as privately."

Whether Atheists like it or not, the majority of taxpayers are religious people - not Atheists. The public square belongs to them just as it does to Atheist.

And yes, maybe it belongs to religious Americans even more so - that is, if for example, we consider the fact that the majority of taxpayers in the United States are Christians and pay 90% of the taxes that go to taking care of the public square which Atheists think they own.

The Atheist pitching a fit about Christians made his point in that he did not worship Christ or observe Christmas, so I said to the Atheist, "I see you're shopping in town today getting in on the Sales right?"

He looked a little bewildered but finally said, "Yes."

Just then a salesperson walked up and asked if we needed help? I looked at the store employee and asked, "these 30% OFF Sales, are they only for Christian people observing Christmas or for everyone in town?"

She laughed and smiled and said, "Everyone, why?"

"This man hates Christmas and wants to pay full price." I said pointing at the Atheist. "He doesn't want to be a hypocrite and take advantage of the Christmas Sales."

"What? Wait ..." the Atheist stammered hearing everyone laugh at him.

"Well show your conviction!" I interrupted, "Demand to pay full price, and take a stand against Christmas!"

Those around us must have thought that that was pretty funny because everyone looked at him and laughed. He then quickly turned and started walking away.

"So," I said out loud, "I guess your convictions against Christians and Christmas stop when it comes to taking advantage of the Sales Prices that our holiday brings this time of year? And how about the revenue that the town gets as well?"

He just kept walking away as quick as he could. The salesperson smiled.

And yes, whether it has to do with our religious holidays or the fact that our government has its basis in Christian ideals, I really believe that Atheists should respect the benefits that we Christians bring to our towns, our cities, or our nation.

I'm starting to see Atheist and the Left as nothing less than Adam Lanza who attacked the kids in Newtown Connecticut. They are terrorist practicing their hate against others who are not like them.

But unlike Adam Lanza, who must have obviously been an Atheist, where we may never know his rationale for attacking those who pose no harm to him -  the Left and Atheists in America attack in order to attain goals that are political and ideological in nature.

Ours is a government that is based on the ideal that sovereign authority rests with God, not the state or with man over others. Importance of governing self and family is our first level of governance. Existence of objective moral values, fixed standards, absolute truth, and the believe that life is precious. That all men are created equal. These are all part of what we celebrate at Christmas.

Could have Atheist Created America? No!

Atheist tried to create a nation, and it was Communist where religion was looked upon as an evil. It failed because of many reasons, including that it stifled the soul of its people by outlawing religion. It failed because it restricted the rights of men and women and children to believe in something more than just the  government.

Because they had no faith, how could anything work for their people? It couldn't and failed miserably. Even with threat of violence, intimidation, and coercion, it failed because they neglected to include God in their foundation as a society.

Founding Father and educator Noah Webster once said, "The moral principles and precepts contained in the scriptures ought to form the basis of all our civil constitutions and laws. All the miseries and evils which men suffer from vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery, and war, proceed from their despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible."

Yes, whether they like it or not, Atheists hate the fact that Christ is at the heart of our founding as a nation.

A lengthy email pointed out to me, "As for your concern about retailers and atheists and others who say or don't say things to your liking, that has nothing to do with the constitutional separation of church and state, which constrains government, not individuals."

While that is true, individuals should not try to use the separation of church and state as some sort of legal basis to attack Christians and Christmas - and after all, that is the point here.



Like the man who felt he had the right to kill children in Newtown Connecticut, Atheists fell they have a right to show contempt for those they hate.
Since this whole article is my knee-jerk opinion of what I see going on this Christmas, yes I see Atheist as a Hate Group because they demonstrate their disdain, their loathing, their complete lack of respect for the rights of Christians.

What they should do is respect others, and simply leave Christians alone. I think we should respect each other.

As far as I'm concerned, it's time for them to shut up and leave us to worship as we please. We Christians are the Left's target, just as it has been for years now. We should be protected from Hate Groups on the Left.

Someone should, because if not - than more of us are going to take them to task for being the hypocrite asses that they are!

  1. Atheists should also not be going to any universities or hospitals that were built by people of The Lord, nor should they be developing advanced physics geared to eliminate God when most of the primary fundamental laws about physics such as Plankcs law, Doppler effect, and Bernoulli's Fluid dynamics were all ingenioused by men of Christ. "Yes Lord, but even the dogs eat the crumbs which fall from the laps of the children who eat at the master's table".
