I often hear that atheism leads to lesser morals or that because atheists exist, America is on a godless spiral downward into oblivion.
It’s hard to imagine how the roughly 3% of the population that identify themselves as atheists has all this power, but it must be true.
After all, some Christian bloggers say it’s true.
Take this post by someone who literally says atheism has turned America to Sodom and Gomorrah.
Yes, that’s right – the 3% of atheists in America has led the country right into the shitter.
Damn you, small minority of atheists! Damn you!
America is now Sodom and Gomorrah reborn and atheism is to blame. It has infiltrated the West with its stupid ideology of a Godless existence, and we are all paying the prize for it. Our dear country founded on the rock of Peter has been demolished and we are being lead by men and women that do not have the fear of God in them.
Screw the report that showed atheists make up a mere 0.07% of the Federal Prison Population.
I’m also not sure what ‘the fear of God’ would do. I mean, almost all of the politicians now in power are Christians. It doesn’t seem to stop them from saying hateful things or from passing laws (or trying to pass laws) that would continue oppressing minorities, such as same-sex couples.
But why let facts get in the way of a good rant against atheists.
Human beings no longer have patience, they shoot and kill other humans like animals. Men and women proudly stand at the mountain tops proclaiming their love of sin. Children are murdered by their own parents.
So what evidence do you have that Americans have less patience now than they did before, and how do you link that to atheism? Does atheism teach less patience? Because as far as I know, atheism is merely a lack of belief in God(s). It doesn’t teach squat.
As far as ‘shooting to kill’, I’m presuming you’re talking about the 1950’s to now. But if you look at the statistics, you’ll find the homicide rate remains about the same. In 1950 the homicide rate was 4.6 per 100,000 and in 2013 it was 4.5. So actually, there was a slight drop in the homicide rate.
In a world where God doesn’t exist so is morality, therefore humans are consumed in their acts of sins, since no God can hold them responsible for any sins.
People can hold people responsible. And again, somewhere in the vicinity of 70%-80% of people in America are Christian. So if all this immorality is taking place, I doubt it’s the 3% of atheists who are the majority of the problem.
Their lack of discipline and responsibility has driven our society to the brink of destruction. Becuase of our atheistic believes the men and women of God trying to do good in other nations in the name God, are continuously threatened with death.
You mean the drone strikes killing innocent people? Or the wars America is currently engaged in, which has caused hundreds of thousands of deaths overseas – many of which were innocent civilians? Or maybe how the President said he had talked to God, before he began a needless war in Iraq?
None of that has anything to do with world mistrust. It must be the atheists. The same atheists that don’t really hold any power in the U.S.A.
Atheism is what they fear not the religion of christianity but since the west has somehow infused them together in a new form of, what is now called democracy, those foreign nations do not want anything to do with it, therefore hindering the spread of the Godpel of Christ Jesus.
So…atheism is responsible for democracy?
What the hell?
And you think democracy is a bad thing? What would you prefer? A theocracy, maybe?
Because let me tell you, theocracies usually aren’t nice places to live.
Their fear of eternal damnation for their sins, and desire to live a life free from the supposed constraints of religion, has driven them to adopt the so called perverse ideology of free will from God’s control, to a life of immorality that has turned our nation to Sodom and Gomorrah.
Wouldn’t FREE will mean you’re not under the control of anything, including a celestial dictator?
But let’s hope your God doesn’t decide to rain down death on America like he supposedly did against Sodom and Gomorrah:
23 By the time Lot reached Zoar, the sun had risen over the land. 24 Then theLord rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah—from the Lord out of the heavens. 25 Thus he overthrew those cities and the entire plain, destroying all those living in the cities—and also the vegetation in the land. 26 But Lot’s wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt.
Eek! Maybe someone should teach Yahweh a little patience. Has He been hanging with atheists too long?
