The No-God Religion

WARNING! There is a group of religious fanatics using legal action to force the entire country to act as though their religion is the only valid one! They are backed by wealthy donors who are equally fanatical in their religion and have been using judges sympathetic to their religion to force it down the rest of our throats despite Seperation of Church and State!

I'm writing of course, about athiests.

Religion is a set of beliefs regarding the spiritual realm that guides our actions. The biggest religions in the world are Christianity, Islam, Bhuddism, Hinduism, and Atheism. Each one has it's own lore about God and the origin of life and the universe. Each one has followers who are so fanatical they will do everything in their power to force their religion down other people's throats or to stifle other religions. Only one is currently being openly sanctioned by any branch of the U.S. government.

Atheism, the religion of the nonexistence of God and all things spiritual is running through the courts demanding that all public expressions of other faiths be removed from the public square. By removing all expressions of faith we are left only with the spiritually sterile, which is the core of Atheism. By this logic forcing all religion out of public life and the government is actually the government sponsoring the religion of Atheism. I do believe this violates Seperation of Church and State.

The only way to assure that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof", as the first sentence of the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights states, is to allow the free expression of all religions as the people see fit. The courts should not tell us what symbols we can use on our public monuments. The Courts should not declare certain statements in national codes like the Pledge of Allegiance to be unconstitutional violations of Seperation of Church and State. Doing so violates the First Amendment. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the court system supposed to protect the Constitution, not violate it in a gross and obscene manner?

These religious fanatics have ben convincing sympathetic judges that their cause is just and correct. More dishonestly they have convinced sympathetic judges that thier Religion of No-God is not actually a religion. It is my personal opinion that every court decision that restricts the free expression of religion in private life, public life, and government is sposoring the Atheist religion and violates the First Amendment. Religious icons, sayings, slogans, and expressions are perfectly Constitutional, laws regarding the use of such expressions of faith are UnConstitutional. It's time every court decision regarding expressions of faith was thrown out so we can all enjoy the freedoms the Constitution is supposed to guarantee us.


  • I totally agree with you on this atheist religion thing and something needs to be done about it but I think it goes much deeper than that. At the risk of sounding like a conspiracy theorist, I believe there is a strong faction that very much wants this nation socialist and have made great progress in that direction, and atheism is pretty much proof of that. Why do you think almost everybody feels the same as we do on this subject but things just keep going to hell in a basket?

  • The big error in your post: the government, you say, allows the promotion of religion (via monuments, etc.) "as the people see fit"---that suggests that religous observances can be established by a majority vote, or something. The point of the 1st amendment is to *remove* religion from the domain of majority votes. We're not *supposed* to come to national agreement on a particular God, dogma, or observance. Erecting a monument implies a consensus agreement.

    A better statement would be "as *each person* sees fit". The government has absolutely zero say, now and forever, as to what goes on in your church and your Sunday schools. Ditto for mosques, synagogues, UU meeting houses, and atheist gatherings. We don't have a vote on which monument to erect---"All in favor of a crucifix, say Aye. Synagogue? Sweat lodge? OK, that's 7 for sweat lodge, 3 synagogue ..."

    The solution means that the public square is something we all agree on: George Washington, the constitution, historical figures. *Any* tax-funded Christian monument will offending all of the unrepresented religious, as well as atheists. A tax-funded Muslim monument would offend Christians, minority religions, and atheists. An explicitly anti-religious statement would offend all religions. The current agreement offends no one. It gives no favor to atheists. It says "This is the public square; expect no religious or anti-religious views here." In exchange for that minor and valuable restraint, we grant complete, constitutionally-protected freedom to all individual religious choices: speech, front-lawn monuments, rituals, doctrine, church hiring decisions, Sunday school curricula, etc...

  • Atheism is not a religion. The religious fanatics that are backed you wealthy donors that you probably meant to speak about are Evangelical Christians.

    Also, along the lines of "allow[ing] the free expression of all religions as the people see fit" does that mean that we are going to place the 10 commandments with a buddhist statue in the same public area then? What if there are a lot of Buddhist who want that?

  • If atheism is "just another religion", then health is just another disease.

  • 10 commandments and a bhudda in the same monument? Sure, what's wrong with that. It's refusing to allow such free expression of religion that violates the first amendment. If the voters want to fund it that's fine with me. But CONGRESS cannot pass any law regarding the establishment of religion. Read the Conmstitution sometime. It's an enlightening experience.

  • 2 references to getting something "rammed down your throat"...

    You got some kind of oral rape fantasy going on or something?

    There's a lot of this "Atheism is a Religion" thing going around the Blogosphere today. you all must have gotten the same email "Action Alert" from Bro. Dobson...

    Yeah, right. I'm sure we'll be seeing the Koran real soon now in a Federal court house. It is easy to say that you are open to all publicly funded religious expression when you are the majority religion. But put yourself in the place of the minority, who will most likely not get voter support to display their religious symbols with tax money and tell me that you wouldn't feel like the government is supporting the majority religion over yours.

    The whole point of the separation of church and state is to protect everyone's religious beliefs by keeping the government from promoting/supporting any one religion. So the solution is to support them all? You are living in a dream world.

  • Unfortunately, left and right are pretty much united in their disdain for God. To the average Republican, test scores are more important than school prayer. Even if all kids can read and write like Abraham Lincoln, they will destroy this country without appreciation for God. Actually, Lincoln once said that the reason we should teach children to read is so they can read the Bible and other texts that teach you how to live properly. When a child spends most of the day in an atmosphere where the mention of God is not allowed, that child will grow up thinking that the world is a chaotic place and that one system of values is as good as the next. Take away the 10 commandments from a child's daily experience and eventually you will witness the destruction of civilization.
