The 3:30 video below of a 1995 speech uncovered by Breitbart.com shows Eric Holder announcing his campaign to “really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way.”

Holder tells the Woman’s National Democratic Club that he intends to model his anti-gun campaign after the successful anti-smoking campaigns:

“What we need to do is change the way in which people think about guns, especially young people, and make it something that’s not cool, that it’s not acceptable, it’s not hip to carry a gun anymore, in the way in which we changed our attitudes about cigarettes.”

Holder later became Deputy Attorney General in the Clinton administration, and now serves as Attorney General in Obama’s Bread and Circuses Administration.

In May 2009, Holder’s Department of Justice dropped charges against the New Black Panther Party for voter intimidation during the 2008 election. Even though the two panthers were shown in paramilitary garb standing outside a Philadelphia polling station, with one wielding a billy club, Holder’s racial bias and notion of social justice for minorities kept him from prosecuting them for civil rights violations.

In addition, Holder’s Department of Justice refused to enforce certain provisions of the Defense of Marriage Act. Once again, Holder’s notion of social justice prevented him from doing his duty and upholding the law.

Holder has also been questioned by the House Judiciary Committee about his involvement in Operation Fast and Furious—an ATF operation that put thousands of guns in the hands of Mexican drug lords and cartel members and two of the guns at the murder scene of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

Holder testified under oath that he didn’t know about Operation Fast and Furious until April 2011, but documents show that Holder had received memos about the operation in 2010. The chairman of the Judiciary Committee has asked Obama to appoint an independent special counsel to investigate whether Holder committed perjury when he lied under oath to the committee.

Over 40 members of Congress have called for Holder to resign for failing to uphold the duties of the office of United States Attorney General.

America’s Most Biblically-Hostile U. S. President

By David Barton

When one observes President Obama’s unwillingness to accommodate America’s four-century long religious conscience protection through his attempts to require Catholics to go against their own doctrines and beliefs, one is tempted to say that he is anti-Catholic. But that characterization would not be correct. Although he has recently singled out Catholics, he has equally targeted traditional Protestant beliefs over the past four years. So since he has attacked Catholics and Protestants, one is tempted to say that he is anti-Christian. But that, too, would be inaccurate. He has been equally disrespectful in his appalling treatment of religious Jews in general and Israel in particular. So perhaps the most accurate description of his antipathy toward Catholics, Protestants, religious Jews, and the Jewish nation would be to characterize him as anti-Biblical. And then when his hostility toward Biblical people of faith is contrasted with his preferential treatment of Muslims and Muslim nations, it further strengthens the accuracy of the anti-Biblical descriptor. In fact, there have been numerous clearly documented times when his pro-Islam positions have been the cause of his anti-Biblical actions.

Listed below in chronological order are (1) numerous records of his attacks on Biblical persons or organizations; (2) examples of the hostility toward Biblical faith that have become evident in the past three years in the Obama-led military; (3) a listing of his open attacks on Biblical values; and finally (4) a listing of numerous incidents of his preferential deference for Islam’s activities and positions, including letting his Islamic advisors guide and influence his hostility toward people of Biblical faith.

1. Acts of hostility toward people of Biblical faith:

  • April 2008 – Obama speaks disrespectfully of Christians, saying they “cling to guns or religion” and have an “antipathy to people who aren’t like them.” 1
  • February 2009 – Obama announces plans to revoke conscience protection for health workers who refuse to participate in medical activities that go against their beliefs, and fully implements the plan in February 2011. 2
  • April 2009 – When speaking at Georgetown University, Obama orders that a monogram symbolizing Jesus’ name be covered when he is making his speech. 3
  • May 2009 – Obama declines to host services for the National Prayer Day (a day established by federal law) at the White House. 4
  • April 2009 – In a deliberate act of disrespect, Obama nominated three pro-abortion ambassadors to the Vatican; of course, the pro-life Vatican rejected all three. 5
  • October 19, 2010 – Obama begins deliberately omitting the phrase about “the Creator” when quoting the Declaration of Independence – an omission he has made on no less than seven occasions. 6
  • November 2010 – Obama misquotes the National Motto, saying it is “E pluribus unum” rather than “In God We Trust” as established by federal law. 7
  • January 2011 – After a federal law was passed to transfer a WWI Memorial in the Mojave Desert to private ownership, the U. S. Supreme Court ruled that the cross in the memorial could continue to stand, but the Obama administration refused to allow the land to be transferred as required by law, and refused to allow the cross to be re-erected as ordered by the Court. 8
  • February 2011 – Although he filled posts in the State Department, for more than two years Obama did not fill the post of religious freedom ambassador, an official that works against religious persecution across the world; he filled it only after heavy pressure from the public and from Congress. 9
  • April 2011 – For the first time in American history, Obama urges passage of a non-discrimination law that does not contain hiring protections for religious groups, forcing religious organizations to hire according to federal mandates without regard to the dictates of their own faith, thus eliminating conscience protection in hiring. 10
  • August 2011 – The Obama administration releases its new health care rules that override religious conscience protections for medical workers in the areas of abortion and contraception. 11
  • November 2011 – Obama opposes inclusion of President Franklin Roosevelt’s famous D-Day Prayer in the WWII Memorial. 12
  • November 2011 – Unlike previous presidents, Obama studiously avoids any religious references in his Thanksgiving speech. 13
  • December 2011 – The Obama administration denigrates other countries’ religious beliefs as an obstacle to radical homosexual rights. 14
  • January 2012 – The Obama administration argues that the First Amendment provides no protection for churches and synagogues in hiring their pastors and rabbis. 15
  • February 2012 – The Obama administration forgives student loans in exchange for public service, but announces it will no longer forgive student loans if the public service is related to religion. 16

2. Acts of hostility from the Obama-led military toward people of Biblical faith:

  • June 2011 – The Department of Veterans Affairs forbids references to God and Jesus during burial ceremonies at Houston National Cemetery. 17
  • August 2011 – The Air Force stops teaching the Just War theory to officers in California because the course is taught by chaplains and is based on a philosophy introduced by St. Augustine in the third century AD – a theory long taught by civilized nations across the world (except America). 18
  • September 2011 – Air Force Chief of Staff prohibits commanders from notifying airmen of programs and services available to them from chaplains. 19
  • September 2011 – The Army issues guidelines for Walter Reed Medical Center stipulating that “No religious items (i.e. Bibles, reading materials and/or facts) are allowed to be given away or used during a visit.” 20
  • November 2011 – The Air Force Academy rescinds support for Operation Christmas Child, a program to send holiday gifts to impoverished children across the world, because the program is run by a Christian charity. 21
  • November 2011 – The Air Force Academy pays $80,000 to add a Stonehenge-like worship center for pagans, druids, witches and Wiccans. 22
  • February 2012 – The U. S. Military Academy at West Point disinvites three star Army general and decorated war hero Lieutenant General William G. (“Jerry”) Boykin (retired) from speaking at an event because he is an outspoken Christian. 23
  • February 2012 – The Air Force removes “God” from the patch of Rapid Capabilities Office (the word on the patch was in Latin: Dei). 24
  • February 2012 – The Army orders Catholic chaplains not to read a letter to parishioners that their archbishop asked them to read. 25

3. Acts of hostility toward Biblical values:

  • January 2009 – Obama lifts restrictions on U.S. government funding for groups that provide abortion services or counseling abroad, forcing taxpayers to fund pro-abortion groups that either promote or perform abortions in other nations. 26
  • January 2009 – President Obama’s nominee for deputy secretary of state asserts that American taxpayers are required to pay for abortions and that limits on abortion funding are unconstitutional. 27
  • March 2009 – The Obama administration shut out pro-life groups from attending a White House-sponsored health care summit. 28
  • March 2009 – Obama orders taxpayer funding of embryonic stem cell research. 29
  • March 2009 – Obama gave $50 million for the UNFPA, the UN population agency that promotes abortion and works closely with Chinese population control officials who use forced abortions and involuntary sterilizations. 30
  • May 2009 – The White House budget eliminates all funding for abstinence-only education and replaces it with “comprehensive” sexual education, repeatedly proven to increase teen pregnancies and abortions. 31 He continues the deletion in subsequent budgets. 32
  • May 2009 – Obama officials assemble a terrorism dictionary calling pro-life advocates violent and charging that they use racism in their “criminal” activities. 33

  • September 16, 2009 – The Obama administration appoints as EEOC Commissioner Chai Feldblum, who asserts that society should “not tolerate” any “private beliefs,” including religious beliefs, if they may negatively affect homosexual “equality.” 35

  • March 2011 – The Obama administration refuses to investigate videos showing Planned Parenthood helping alleged sex traffickers get abortions for victimized underage girls. 40
  • July 2011 – Obama allows homosexuals to serve openly in the military, reversing a policy originally instituted by George Washington in March 1778. 41
  • September 2011 – The Pentagon directs that military chaplains may perform same-sex marriages at military facilities in violation of the federal Defense of Marriage Act. 42
  • October 2011 – The Obama administration eliminates federal grants to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops for their extensive programs that aid victims of human trafficking because the Catholic Church is anti-abortion. 43

4. Acts of preferentialism for Islam:

  • May 2009 – While Obama does not host any National Day of Prayer event at the White House, he does host White House Iftar dinners in honor of Ramadan. 44
  • April 2010 – Christian leader Franklin Graham is disinvited from the Pentagon’s National Day of Prayer Event because of complaints from the Muslim community. 45
  • April 2010 – The Obama administration requires rewriting of government documents and a change in administration vocabulary to remove terms that are deemed offensive to Muslims, including jihad, jihadists, terrorists, radical Islamic, etc. 46
  • August 2010 – Obama speaks with great praise of Islam and condescendingly of Christianity. 47
  • August 2010 – Obama went to great lengths to speak out on multiple occasions on behalf of building an Islamic mosque at Ground Zero, while at the same time he was silent about a Christian church being denied permission to rebuild at that location. 48
  • 2010 – While every White House traditionally issues hundreds of official proclamations and statements on numerous occasions, this White House avoids traditional Biblical holidays and events but regularly recognizes major Muslim holidays, as evidenced by its 2010 statements on Ramadan, Eid-ul-Fitr, Hajj, and Eid-ul-Adha. 49
  • October 2011 – Obama’s Muslim advisers block Middle Eastern Christians’ access to the White House. 50
  • February 2012 – The Obama administration makes effulgent apologies for Korans being burned by the U. S. military, 51 but when Bibles were burned by the military, numerous reasons were offered why it was the right thing to do. 52

Many of these actions are literally unprecedented – this is the first time they have happened in four centuries of American history. The hostility of President Obama toward Biblical faith and values is without equal from any previous American president.

On the same day the Thirteen Colonies declared independence from Great Britain, the Continental Congress appointed the First Committee to design the Great Seal of the United States. Committeeman Benjamin Franklin proposed a scene with the Israelites and Moses standing on the shore, his hand outstretched over the sea, causing the waters to overwhelm Pharaoh and his army. Pharaoh is in an open chariot with a crown on his head and a sword in his hand. The Pillar of Fire is in the sky above Moses; its rays are reaching down to him to express that his actions are commanded by the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. The motto circling the seal reads: “Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God.”

Breitbart’s Death Needs to Be Investigated for the Sake and Safety of All Journalists

By Andrew Steele

A month ago, while speaking at CPAC, conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart bragged to his audience about having incriminating videos of Barack Obama that would sink the president’s reelection campaign.  Later he told Lawrence Sinclair of Sinclair News “Wait til they see what happens March 1st.”

On March 1st, shortly after midnight, Andrew Breitbart was dead at the age of 43.  Even before there was an autopsy the media was quick to assure the shocked public that Breitbart had died of “natural causes”.  Conservative, and even some liberal, mouthpieces shared their fond memories of Breitbart on television and in opinion pieces, while others– like Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone– happily basked in the death of their ideological rival.

Breitbart’s final hours were described to The Hollywood Reporter by Arthur Sando, who is a publicity and marketing executive for the dietary supplement company MonaVie and has worked for several large television networks in the past.  According to Sando, Breitbart walked into The Brentwood– a restaurant and bar in L.A.– and sat down next to him.  Sando recognized Breitbart due to his fame and they engaged in a discussion for about two hours.  Sando said that Breitbart was “friendly and engaging” and that he had stopped at the bar for a drink but hadn’t come there to meet anyone in particular.  Breitbart didn’t drink excessively, according to Sando’s account, was on his blackberry a lot, and didn’t exhibit any signs of health or other problems.  Before Breitbart left they exchanged contact information and planned on getting together.

Later that night (at about 12:30 or 1 a.m) Breitbart was found on the sidewalk near his Westwood home after having collapsed, according to his father-in-law, Orson Bean.

“He was walking near the house somewhere…. He was taken by paramedics to UCLA and they couldn’t revive him,” said Bean.

Other reports mention that a neighbor saw Breitbart collapse.

As of this writing the results of the autopsy are still pending.

Though Breitbart was no spring chicken, at 43 he was still young enough for his death to be considered untimely.  It’s been reported that Breitbart had heart problems (I have yet to find any source detailing what specific heart problems he had, however).  His editor in chief Joel Pollak spoke to Carol Felsenthal for a piece that was posted on The Hill.  Though Felsenthal wrote that Pollak never said so specifically, she claimed he indicated that he thought Breitbart died of natural causes.

Yet in that piece Pollack was quoted as saying:

“Andrew was the picture of health. I had a conversation with someone who had been with Andrew on the day before he died and this person told me, ‘Andrew looked so good.’ He went to the gym the day he died, he was losing weight, he was healthy and robust.”

Since Andrew Breitbart was adopted and his birth parents’ identities have not been disclosed to the general public, it’s currently unknown whether or not he had a genetic predisposition to early death due to heart disease or any other kind of ailment.

As the first suspicions were being raised about the amazing timing of Breitbart’s death– taking place in the first hour of the very day he planned to release allegedly controversial video footage– mainstream media columnists began their usual attacks on those voicing their suspicions, with slurs and insults but very few facts to reassure a rightfully distrustful public that Breitbart couldn’t possibly have been the victim of an assassination.  The nature of Breitbart’s death leads many to dismiss reasonable questions about the timing as “conspiracy theories” because indeed it is true that sometimes people unexpectedly die young of natural causes.  What usually comes to most people’s minds when imagining political murders are violent scenes in which a person is shot or quietly strangled, or some kind of traceable poison is slipped into his or her drink.  These kinds of scenes play out in movies and do little to inform the public of how terrifyingly simple it is for a person with the right resources to murder another and make it look like a natural death, leaving behind no trace of the crime whatsoever.

It is indeed possible to make somebody to have a heart attack.

As far back as 1975, during the Church Committee hearings, it was revealed that the CIA had developed a poison that could cause a person to have a sudden heart attack. They froze the poison into the shape of a dart and fired it at high speed from a pistol so that it would go right through the clothes of the person who was shot, melt, and be absorbed into the body and blood to initiate the heart attack, leaving nothing but a small red mark on the body. The poison was developed in such a way that it was undetectable by the autopsy procedures of the time.

Again, Breitbart’s official cause of death hasn’t been released yet, however a heart attack is the explanation that the media seems to be herding the public towards.  This is just one example of a weapon that came to light many decades ago, reluctantly revealed to a committee investigating the activities of American intelligence services.  It’s a testament to what the U.S. government was capable of in 1975, and says nothing of how that technology has been improved thirty-seven years later, or what nasty devices and poisons they managed to keep secret.

Of course, an order to kill Breitbart need not have even come directly from the White House.  It could have come from parties interested in seeing that the President stay in office.  Certainly if the CIA can figure out how to kill a person in a cleverly untraceable way, so can the organizations of powerful people who may have copied the CIA’s methods and technology or even had it directly given to them at one point or another.

It’s on record that in the past the U.S. government has worked with the mob.

Under “Operation Underworld” the U.S. government cooperated with organized crime figures during World War 2 to counter Axis spies and saboteurs along the U.S. northeastern seaboard ports, avoid labor union strikes, and fight theft by black-marketeers of war supplies.

The CIA also utilized members of the mob in plotting to kill Fidel Castro.

As the article “The Plots to Kill Castro” by Edward Jay Epstein, (published in the June 2000 issue of GEORGE) explains, investigations by the CIA’s Inspector General in 1967 and the Church Committee 1975 revealed that there were at least eight separate plots to kill the Cuban leader starting in 1960. Seeking to arrange less expensive ways to carry out the deed, the CIA saw an advantage in employing the mob because of its contacts in the Cuban underworld, and because if the assassins were killed or captured, Castro’s well known actions against the mob in closing down its enterprises in Cuba and the animosity created as a result would provide the CIA a degree of separation from the hit and plausible deniability.

For working with the CIA, the mob members involved in the plot got protection from FBI investigations into their criminal activities at home.

From that article:

“Rosselli proposed a simple plan: through its underworld connections in Cuba, the Mafia would recruit a Cuban in Castro’s entourage, such as a waiter or bodyguard, who would poison Castro. The CIA’s Technical Services Division, informally known as its “workshop,” was given the job of producing and testing on monkeys an untraceable poison. It came up with a botulinus toxin that the CIA’s Office of Medical Services then injected into Castro’s favorite brand cigars. It also produced simpler botulinus toxin pills that could be dissolved in his food or drink. But the deputized Mafia contacts failed to deliver any of the poisons to Castro. As Rosselli explained to the CIA, the first poisoner had been discharged from Castro’s employ before he could kill him, while a back-up agent got “cold feet.”

According to Mancow Muller– a conservative radio host and a friend of Breitbart– who spoke on the Alex Jones show, Breitbart had told him “The house of cards is coming down, I have information that will destroy Barack Obama, it’s over”.

Breitbart was ready to release his Obama college video on March 1st, yet it took his team until March 7th to get it out to the public. Though this might not be all that was on the video, Breitbart specifically mentioned during his CPAC speech that it would show that Obama met with a bunch of “silver ponytails” back in the 1980′s like Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn who said “One day we’re going to have the presidency”.

Why the alleged specifics of the video are important to mention is because after a week of waiting, what has been released and purported to be Breitbart’s scandalous video is mundane footage of a young Obama praising some professor at a public rally in 1991.

While Breitbart’s critics often argue that he distorted the views of his targets or left out material in order to take their words out of context, there is a huge difference between doing that and turning a boring speech on a sunny day about a professor into a meeting with radical people seeking to usurp the the nation through the presidency.  People will say many things about Andrew Breitbart, but he wasn’t stupid…not in the sense that he would outright lie about what he had and not expect his credibility and career to be in the toilet when a month later what he produced turned out to be something completely different and benign.  

This was not like the Shirley Sherrod incident in which the footage was edited in such a way that it changed the context of what was said.  This was a completely different video…like apples and chocolate cake.  Not only that, but there’s nothing  in the video that could even be debated as being politically damaging to Obama…just a preview of the same smooth talking, cookie cutter oratory Americans would find themselves listening to in 2008.

On top of all this, though the media has claimed that the footage was released by Harvard University Law School professor Charles Ogletree, who had kept the footage hidden during the 2008 campaign because he was an Obama supporter, in fact video of this exact same speech was included as part of a PBS special that aired in 2008.

Had similar circumstances happened to an outspoken critic of the national head of the Soviet Union during the 1970′s, Americans would have rightly cried foul and strongly suspected murder, even if the details of the alleged crime couldn’t immediately be pieced together.   Under the last few presidents, and now under Barack Obama, we’ve witnessed the United States government transform into an increasingly open dictatorship in which Americans can be killed or indefinitely detained on the President’s order, war can be waged solely based on the President’s command, and in which whistle blowers are persecuted and even prosecuted.

This is not about political ideology or whether or not you supported Andrew Breitbart’s views on certain issues, liked his personality, or agreed with his methods. This is about a man who died– a man who made many enemies and who was threatening to bring down the person who holds the most powerful official position in the world, as well as any people who had a stake in keeping him there.

If there’s even a chance Andrew Breitbart was murdered it must be fully and independently investigated, no matter what destination such an investigation might lead to.  An attack on Andrew Breitbart’s life would equate to attack on all political dissenters, both conservative and liberal . As human beings we owe it, not just to Andrew Breitbart but to ourselves and our own security, to shed further light on this strange event and to look out for each other, even if we don’t agree with all the world views our fellow bloggers and commentators hold.

Hypocrite Democrat congresswomen Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) and Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.), who have openly denounced Rush Limbaugh for calling Georgetown Law student and leftist activist Sandra Fluke a “slut” and “prostitute,” prefer to keep silent when it comes to condemning comedian Bill Maher for calling former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin a “c*nt” and a “dumb twat.”

The hypocrites also refused to call on Obama’s reelection SuperPAC to return Maher’s recent $1 million contribution.

In a related matter, Obama senior campaign strategist David Axelrod is scheduled to be on Maher’s Real Time HBO talk show in the next few weeks.

Democrats prove once again that it’s not about women’s issues; it’s about the power.

An Open Letter to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

By Scott Ryan

Dear Prime Minister Netanyahu,

It’s been almost one year ago since I last wrote you an open letter like this.  I just want to let you know that most Americans agree with your assessment on Iran and the consequences to both Israel and America if those savages procure nuclear weapons.

In a peculiar way, a large number of us look to you, as opposed to the current President of the United States as our legitimate leader in these perilous times.  We have much more in common since our nation was founded upon the belief that there is ONE God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  Our nation was founded upon the word of the God of Israel.  His name permeates our founding documents and His laws are etched into our government buildings.

We have more in common with you because our current President of the United States and his Attorney General have waged war on our faith, our military, our schools and our families from the day he took office.

Another thing we have in common is that your people, God’s chosen, were in exile for many years and are constantly under attack by people who tell you that your country, given to you by a covenant by God Himself – is not yours.

We too are currently in a form of exile, being falsely maligned and attacked by enemies of God and our heritage, who tell us that our country is not ours despite a compact with our God dating back to 1620, known as the Mayflower Compact and our founding document in 1776, The Declaration of Independence. 

I just want to let you know that WE have your back; but as you WELL know – our President does not.  On that note, I just want to say that I understand why you publicly stated weeks ago that Israel reserves the right to attack Iran and will not notify the President of the United States.

The graciousness in the way you handled this is evidenced by the popular conjecture that the reason is that by not notifying “our” President is that you would exculpate the US from being blamed by Iran for complicity.  I can only speak for myself in saying that I don’t blame you for not trusting this President with valuable information as to when exactly you will attack.  If I were in your shoes and dealt with the brunt of Obama’s public insolence and duplicity toward Israel, I too would worry about a “tip off” to Iran.

Since Iran has never had any intentions of complying, time is of the essence.  As with the Iranian hostage crisis when President Reagan took office the hostages were released that very day.  We know the importance of having a President who recognizes the threat of Iran and one who has the character to tell the truth.

That is the kind of ally you know you can count on.  You need an ally in the US whom you know will never flip-flop depending on vicissitudes of the day.  It just so happens that your friends in the Republican Party who are daily criticized even by the moderate minority in our party – have two conservative candidates who you well know – believe in the ONE true God of Israel and have consistently been dependable on Issues concerning Israel.

One of them is Rick Santorum, who has stood up to ridicule by the “moderates” in our party for taking a stand for the beliefs he holds dear, which include the sovereignty of Israel and her God ordained right to exist.  Rick has taken the heat even though the majority of those in his Catholic denomination voted for the moderate of another faith altogether.  Rick has the steadfast support of the evangelical Christians who recognize that Israel was called by God – the Apple of His eye.

The other is Newt Gingrich, who has many of the characteristics of Winston Churchill.  Gingrich is a strong leader and has long been warning of the threat posed against Israel.

Israel would do well with either of these fine statesmen who represent the MAJORITY of the Republican Party by significant margin – as US President.

As we know that what Israel MUST do is inevitable, we hope that it happens soon.  When it happens, it will prevail as the most substantial debate in the world and it would be fitting that it should be at the forefront of the national debate as our nation’s leadership for the next 4-8 years is determined.

We continue to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

A Dark Cloud of Ignorance Envelopes Atheism

By Jerry A. Kane

Bend your ears boys and girls for another of Baron von Münch-Kane’s once-spun yarns and twice-told tales.

As a rule I don’t engage fools in their folly, but I have on occasions made exceptions for the sake of my former students. A case in point involves a former student who, “spurred on by the conviction that the world needed his immediate presence,” decided to tilt at the windmills of religion on facebook.

After his initial got-ya post by Jon Stewart, “Religion. It’s given people hope in a world torn apart by religion.” and my Tom Stoppard response “Atheism is a crutch for those who cannot bear the reality of God,” he grabbed his soap box and offered even more “windy blather and lies.”

[H]umans invented God; atheism isn’t about denying god’s existence, its about realizing that there is actually nothing to deny. The theory of God makes no sense. The universe didn’t have a starting, it has always existed, its infinite. And always expanding. Also, I don’t need God to tell me right from wrong….so it has nothing to do with accounting for your actions. God isn’t real, its a fairy tale…full of many holes. Sure its possible. But its also possible that God is an old smelly sneaker on the side of the road. I take no comfort in even toying with the notion that god might exist, because if he/she/it does exist, he/she/it does absolutely nothing to help us in anyway. Wars are started because of this crackpot theory of a big invisible dude in the sky that watches over everything and judges you when you do wrong things. Paranoid schizophrenics are people who believe invisible beings in their head actually exist and tell them what to do. If you hear voices in your head you need to see a shrink. It isn’t God talking to you, you’ve just come to the point where you can’t keep an open mind and refuse to listen to logical sense. The idea of God makes no logical sense. Humans are just random energy and particles, and the reason it seems perfect to us is because we have no frame of reference for anything besides our own lives. It really is just random energy. The universe obeys the laws of physics, not the laws of God. Organized religion is responsible for more hatred and bloodshed than any other issue we face. And remember, if God created everything, then something must have created god. So it doesn’t matter how you look at it, but your views on atheism are skewed. You are misinformed. You make it out to be a joke. The beliefs of an atheist are equally valid to any theists belief structure. The odds of there actually being a god like you describe are about 1 in 800,000,000,000,000. There will never be proof of God. There doesn’t have to be proof that God doesn’t exist for it to be a reality, since mankind created the idea of God. Organized religion is one of the biggest tragedies to fall upon the human race. And I feel bad for people who can’t open their mind enough to realize that NOBODY KNOWS ANYTHING. We don’t know how we got here and guess what….we never will. We will never have anything better than an educated guess. Blind faith is not an admirable trait. Religion is part of a system of control that keeps people from seeking truth.

Obviously “his brains dried up to such a degree that he lost the use of his reason.” But I was born “a target at which the arrows of adversary are aimed,” so I set out to remove that dark cloud of ignorance that had been cast over his understanding.

In the classroom I have tried to encourage students to think for themselves, not just parrot the opinions, beliefs, and prejudices of parents, peers, and professors, and to examine both sides of an issue for facts and supporting evidence before forming an opinion.

The assertions you use to support your atheist beliefs are quite revealing: humans created the idea of God; the universe didn’t have a beginning; the universe has always existed; the universe is infinite and always expanding; humans are random energy and particles, nothing more; God isn’t real; people who believe in God are mentally ill, and organized religion is responsible for most of the world’s hatred and bloodshed.

You realize of course that your postulates are based solely on faith, not fact. For example, your dogmatic assertions regarding the universe may well be true, but then again they may well be wrong. Scientists who contemplate such mighty themes have no way of knowing for sure what really went on at the birth of the universe or if there was a birth. How can they know for certain that the laws of physics they study on earth are the same laws as those that brought the universe into existence?

The truth is the theories regarding the origins of the universe belong to scientism, not science. And even though scientism is the belief of many renowned scientists, it is not a method of inquiry into our world; it is a philosophical interpretation of science and of the natural order. Scientism views only scientific claims as meaningful, which in fact is not a scientific claim; therefore, the claim itself is rendered either false or meaningless. Yet scientism preaches that science is the absolute, only justifiable access to the truth, thereby deifying science and making scientism the only true religion for the devoted smart set.

Some religions are monotheistic (Judaism, Christianity) i.e., they worship one God; others are polytheistic (Hinduism, Mormonism) i.e., they worship many gods; some are non-theistic (Jainism, Buddhism) i.e., they don’t recognize or worship a deity, and others are anti-theistic (atheists, new atheists) i.e., they ridicule the very idea of God or gods and advocate the end of religious worship and faith.

Loosely defined, religion is a freely chosen lifestyle with a structured set of rules. Clever denials do not disprove the fact that atheism is a religion. Although atheism may not fit your mold of a stereotypical religion, the US Supreme Court has recognized it as a religion nonetheless.

It has a theology that interprets everything through the lens of materialism. The natural world, which is comprised of purposeless, meaningless particles in motion, is all there is and all there ever will be.

It has a hardened orthodoxy—zealously embraced and parroted by the atheist community—that insists everything is the product of unintentional, undirected, purposeless evolution, and that all truth claims must be subject to scientific scrutiny.

It has prophets such as Ludwig Feuerbach, Karl Marx, Arthur Schopenhauer, and Friedrich Nietzsche who have proclaimed religion as an oppressive system of archaic mythologies used to control and manipulate people.

It has apostates such as Anthony Flew who was one of the world’s prominent atheists until he changed his mind. Atheist Richard Dawkins accused Flew of “tergiversation,” which is a rather pretentious way of saying that he deserted or abandoned the “true faith.”

It has a messiah, Charles Darwin, who provided both a comprehensive explanation of life without a supreme being as its cause or purpose and the way to liberation and freedom from religious tyranny.

It has a sacred text On the Origins of the Species by Charles Darwin, which serves as the foundation and the final “revelation” of the “true faith.”

It has a succession of popes that include Thomas Huxley, Bertrand Russell, and the current pope, Richard Dawkins, who issue decrees, make dogmas, excommunicate heretics, and denounce the enemies of the true faith.

It has well-known evangelists such as Carl Sagan, Christopher Hitchens, Paul Kurtz, and Daniel Dennett who proselytize the one true faith and proclaim the end of theism.

Atheism is a religion people join to appear smarter, and yet it’s not intelligence but faith that atheists need to embrace an evolutionary theory that doesn’t account for reasoning, self-awareness, consciousness, and a universal sense of right and wrong or explain why the universe is orderly, predictable, and measurable.

“We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn’t know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God. We see a universe marvelously arranged and obeying certain laws, but only dimly understand these laws. Our limited minds cannot grasp the mysterious force that moves the constellations.”—Albert Einstein

But what I find most disturbing in your attack on religion is that you think the people who believe in God are mentally ill, and that organized religion is responsible for the world’s ills.

You realize of course that the modern day atheist regimes have also branded religious believers as mentally ill, and have been the most murderous regimes in the history of the world. Atheist dictators Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong, and Kim Il-sung imposed state sanctioned atheism and totalitarian control over their people in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, the People’s Republic of China, and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, respectively.

Atheist regimes have governed twenty-eight countries in world history and more than half of the ruling dictators have engaged in murderous acts of the sort committed by Stalin and Mao.  From 1917 through 2007 atheist dictators killed approximately 148 million people, three times more than the combined total of all the human beings killed by war, civil war, and individual crime in the twentieth century.

In the United States religious freedom is an inalienable human right, yet atheists persist in trying to control, suppress, and eliminate religion, but this is nothing new. For example, Thomas Paine, one of the great voices of the American Revolution, also wanted to excise religion from political discourse and opinion making. He attacked organized religion in general and Christianity in particular because he saw belief in a providential God as harmful to a free society. He once asked Benjamin Franklin to critique his polemic against faith in a God “that takes cognizance of, guards, and guides, and may favor particular persons.”

Franklin chided Paine for over reacting to a non-existent problem. “If men are so wicked with religion, what would they be if without it?” he asked Paine. Franklin understood that men are instinctively religious creatures and that religion has social benefits and enhances culture. He also knew that God, whether a man-made concept or real, represents that which cannot be controlled or comprehended, but unites people.

If you are right, then everything is just time and chance acting on matter. If thoughts are, as you say, just a series of chemical reactions, then tenderness, tragedy, and sorrow are meaningless abstractions, nothing more than chemical reactions of the brain, which means that saying I love you has no more significance than belching after a meal.

You sum up your screed by declaring “Nobody knows anything.” How can you know what you just admitted no human being can know, which is nobody knows anything? Your all-encompassing assertion includes you as well, so it is preposterous for you to assert that nobody knows anything when your assertion implies a degree of knowledge that you admit you don’t have. Congratulations, you are hoist by your own petard.

Even though God’s existence can be proved, you won’t find Him for the same reason that a thief can’t find a policeman. But if you apply the Socratic principle and “follow the evidence, wherever it leads” you will discover why Anthony Flew looked at the vastly complex information code in the mapping and sequencing of the DNA molecule and drew the conclusion “that intelligence must have been involved in getting these extraordinarily diverse elements together.”

When a sex-crazed 3rd-year law student attending Georgetown went before a panel of congressional Democrats and pleaded for taxpayer money to pay for her birth control so that she and other co-eds could have sex at least three times a day, and conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh responded by calling her a slut for her acknowledged promiscuousness, the Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner immediately stepped forward to condemn the comment as “inappropriate.”

Yet Speaker Boehner said nothing when CNN anchor Anderson Cooper referred to the Tea Party protests as “tea-bagging,” which is a slang term used to describe the sleazy homosexual practice of go-go boys dancing on the top of bars and dipping their scrotum and testicles into the gaping mouth of a liberal tipper.

With the ides of March approaching, shouldn’t Republicans begin thinking about replacing the Speaker of the House?
