So I just had my daily serving of fruitcake…
Could one be any more ignorant and deluded than this guy, Pastor Mike, who’s calling for a national registry for atheists? In his blog post here he states,
“Registering atheists like Richard Dawkins would at least let people know who – and WHERE – they reside.
“Why do many atheists hold a hatred toward a creator they say doesn’t exist? How can you hate something you claim doesn’t exist?”
I always cop these kind of garbage statements from religious people I meet when they first learn about atheism from an actual atheist, as opposed to what they’re force-fed by their uneducated, hateful and ignorant church leaders. Atheists DON”T hold any hatred toward your creator, which we don’t believe exists. That would be about as uselessly stupid as holding hatred towards hob-goblins or the tooth fairy. However, I’m sure SOME atheists, far from all of them, may hold a certain amount of dislike for those who worship your non-existent creator. Especially if it fosters this sort of unthinking.
“Brothers and Sisters , I have been seriously considering forming a ( Christian ) grassroots type of organization to be named “The Christian National Registry of Atheists” or something similar . I mean , think about it . There are already National Registrys for convicted sex offenders , ex-convicts , terrorist cells , hate groups like the KKK , skinheads , radical Islamists , etc.. “
I don’t know whether to be impressed or offended at the fact that Pastor Mike didn’t include homosexuals in his list alongside us atheists. However, I’m pretty impressed and offended at the fact that he puts atheists up beside convicted sex offenders, terrorist cells and the KKK. As if being an atheist were a crime. Though by the sounds of this extremist Christian’s ramblings, I’m sure he’d see atheism a crime punishable by death if he had his way.
You don’t need to wonder why the number of atheists is growing all across the globe when you have zealots like this moron spreading this kind of propaganda.
Now , many (especially the atheists ) , may ask “Why do this , what’s the purpose ?” Duhhh , Mr. Atheist , for the same purpose many States put the names and photos of convicted sex offenders and other ex-felons on the I-Net – to INFORM the public ! I mean , in the City of Miramar , Florida , where I live , the population is approx. 109,000 . My family and I would sure like to know how many of those 109,000 are ADMITTED atheists ! Perhaps we may actually know some . In which case we could begin to witness to them and warn them of the dangers of atheism . Or perhaps they are radical atheists , whose hearts are as hard as Pharaoh’s , in that case , if they are business owners , we would encourage all our Christian friends , as well as the various churches and their congregations NOT to patronize them as we would only be “feeding” Satan .
Frankly , I don’t see why anyone would oppose this idea – including the atheists themselves ( unless of course , they’re actually ashamed of their atheist religion , and would prefer to stay in the ‘closet.’ ) .
People like Pastor Mike are the ones who need to be put on national registries or watch lists. After all, this blog post is one more example of someone attempting to spread hatred and oppression to one of the most benign groups in the world. And I’m sure in the same breath as he condemns atheists he’d tell you how loving, accepting and non-judgmental Christians are. If believing in your creator gives you this attitude to other groups who have opposing beliefs to you, well, maybe you’ll understand why I am an atheist.
Bahhh bahhh bahhh Pastor Mike, you thoughtless sheep.
