Ronald Reagan said: “Sometimes when I’m faced with an atheist, I am tempted to invite him to the greatest gourmet dinner that one could ever serve, and when we have finished eating that magnificent dinner, to ask him if he believes there’s a cook.”
Atheists are an interesting bunch, in that they don’t believe in a God, but are militant in their non-belief. You would think that someone who didn’t believe in God would not have much of a care as to what goes on in everyone else’s lives; yet they cannot seem to stop intruding. They throw tantrums whenever religion is brought up; whether it is brought up in public schools, courthouses, or universities. They can’t stand that people believe in God; it preys on their minds. In response, they form groups like the Freedom From Religion Foundation, so that faith can be squashed through legal means.
Recently, a news story broke about a high school valedictorian who disobeyed the establishment by tearing up his pre-approved speech, and delivering the Lord’s Prayer at his graduation ceremony. Despite his principal’s warning that there was to be no reference to any God in the speech, Roy Costner decided that he needed to do what he thought was right.
According to Town Hall:
“The Freedom From Religion Foundation blasted what it called the ‘open defiance’ of a valedictorian who delivered The Lord’s Prayer during a high school graduation ceremony last Saturday in South Carolina…The school district had been in a battle over public prayers after the FFRF filed a complaint objecting to what they called an ‘unconstitutional prayer practice.'”
The president of the FFRF said: “The valedictorian who so insensitively inflicted Christian prayer on a captive audience at a secular graduation ceremony, is a product of a school district which itself set an unconstitutional example by hosting school board prayer.”
There is an attitude among elite atheists that is contradictory to their supposed lack of faith in God. They are so reviled by the public act of prayer; yet if their non-belief held to any consistency, they could not feel so outraged.
The lack of belief in a God or ruling entity places atheists in the category of relativism. While those who believe in God hold to a morality that is universal, and standard; atheists have no such luxury. Without an overseer, they live in a world of subjective morality; morality defined by themselves. Within this self-defined morality lies an infinite, and ever expanding definition of right and wrong. One person’s black will be someone else’s white; and there can be no judgment, because there is no higher standard by which they can be judged.
So the very fact that the president of the FFRF is so outraged means that she is not following her own creed, and is therefore a fraud. She cannot judge what is right or wrong, given her own position; so who is she to be upset by what another person believes is his right to pray? She is a contradiction.
Aside from deconstructing the absurdity of the FFRF, I can’t sum up my point in a better fashion than to quote Roy Costner himself. “We are not in a country where we have freedom from religion. We have freedom of religion.”
The Freedom From Religion Foundation is an organization based solely in hatred, and built upon a giant contradiction. Thank you, Roy Costner, for giving us all another opportunity to expose the insanity of atheism.
