The Atheists War on Christianity in America

‘Celebrate Our Godless Constitution’:

Guess Who’s Behind This July 4 Ad Decrying the ‘Myth’ That the U.S. Was Founded on Christianity

The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), an atheist activist non-profit, is behind a new full-page newspaper ad that decries the notion that America was founded on Christianity and the Bible. A portion of the contentious text reads, “Celebrate Our Godless Constitution,” and it features the faces and quotes from some of the nation’s most prominent Founding Fathers.

The effort, according to the FFRF’s website, praises the U.S.’s “godless constitution.” Created in response to craft store chain Hobby Lobby’s advertisements about faith in America (the company has posted these in newspapers across the U.S. since 2008), the FFRF ads will certainly spark some controversy.

“The ads quote U.S. Founders and Framers on their strong views against religion in government, and often critical views on religion in general,” reads a press release announcing the atheist effort. “The ad features two revolutionaries and Deists, Thomas Paine and Benjamin Franklin, and the first four presidents: George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison.”

People reading the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Seattle Times, Chicago Tribune and other daily newspapers across America will likely be surprised when they are greeted with today’s atheist-laden history lesson.

“The Government of the United States is not in any sense founded on the Christian religion,” reads one of the quotes (a portion of a treaty that was once signed by John Adams).

“Religious controversies are always productive of more acrimony and irreconcilable hatreds than those which spring from any other course,” another statement from Washington reads.

And these are just two of the many (see the entire FFRF godless ad).

The Hobby Lobby ad which has sparked the FFRF response takes the opposite stand. Titled “In God We Trust,” it provides quotes showing the Founders’ pro-faith views. Among the quotes and information shared in the text are statements from President George Washington and Patrick Henry.

“It is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor,” the nation’s first president is quoted as saying (this comes from from a Thanksgiving proclamation in 1789).

Once again, one side is doubling down in claiming that America’s Christian roots are manufactured, while the other believes wholeheartedly in the Bible’s role in shaping the U.S.

America before there were Politically Correct Liberals

To Those of Us Born

1925 – 1970 :
TO ALL THE KIDS WHO SURVIVED THE
1930s, ’40s, ’50s, ’60s and ’70s!!

First, we survived being born to Mothers who may have smoked and/or drank while they were pregnant. They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can, and didn’t get tested for diabetes. Then, after that trauma, we were put to sleep on our tummies in baby cribs covered with bright colored lead-based paints.

We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, locks on doors or cabinets, and, when we rode our bikes, we had baseball caps, not helmets, on our heads.

As infants and children, we would ride in cars with no car seats, no booster seats, no seat belts, no air bags, bald tires and sometimes no brakes..

Riding in the back of a pick- up truck on a warm day was always a special treat.

We drank water from the garden hose and not from a bottle.

We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle, and no one actually died from this.

We ate cupcakes, white bread, real butter, and bacon. We drank Kool-Aid  Soda made with real white sugar. And we weren’t overweight.

WHY?

Because we were always outside playing…that’s why!

We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on.

No one was able to reach us all day and, we were OKAY..

We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then ride them down the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes.. After running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem.

We did not have Play Stations, Nintendo and X-boxes. There were no video games, no 150 channels on cable, no video movies or DVDs, no surround-sound or CDs, no cell phones, no personal computers, no Internet and no chat rooms.

WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found them!

We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth, and there were no lawsuits from those accidents.

We would get spankings with wooden spoons, switches, ping-pong paddles, or just a bare hand, and no one would call child services to report abuse.

We ate worms, and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not live in us forever.

We were given BB guns for our 10th birthdays, made up games with sticks and tennis balls, and although we were told it would happen- we did not put out very many eyes.

We rode bikes or walked to a friend’s house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just walked in and talked to them.

Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team.

Those who didn’t had to learn to deal with disappointment.
Imagine that!!

The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law!

These Generations have produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers, and inventors ever.

The past 50 to 85 years have seen an explosion of innovation and new ideas..

We had Freedom, Failure, Success and Responsibility, and we learned how to deal with it all.

If you are one of those born
Between 1925-1970, CONGRATULATIONS!

You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up as kids before the Lawyers and the Government Regulated so much of our lives for our own good.

Kind of makes you want to run through the house with scissors, doesn’t it ?

The Quote of the Month

By Jay Leno:

“With Hurricanes, Tornados, Fires out of Control, Mud Slides, Flooding, Severe Thunderstorms tearing up the Country from one end to another, and with the threat of Bird Flu and Terrorist Attacks, are we sure this is a good time to take God out of the Pledge of Allegiance?”

For those that prefer to think that God is not watching over us…go ahead and move on to Obama’s World

Besides, your probably a Liberal

I am happy to be Clinging to my Guns and Religion…Paul Ryan

Hat tip to The Blaze for this report

Paul Ryan Jabs Obama:

‘I Am Happy To Be Clinging To My Guns and My Religion’

The phrase “bitter clingers” was born after President Obama described small-town conservatives as “[clinging] to guns or religion“ as a way to ”explain their frustration.”

On Tuesday, Republican Paul Ryan addressed the comments head-on, saying that, as a Catholic and a hunter, he is “happy” to be described in such a way.

“I remember this other time, where [Obama] was caught on video saying ‘people like to cling to their guns and their religion,” Ryan began to a large crowd, adding:  “Hey– I am a Catholic deer-hunter.  I am happy to be clinging to my guns and my religion.”

Ryan, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s running mate, was visiting a family-owned steel processing plant near Pittsburgh when he made the comments.

According to NBC Connecticut, he also said Obama has used Medicare “like a piggy bank” to fund Obamacare, adding that the president is relying on “distortions” because “that’s all he has to offer.”

This Election the Choices are Clear

Very Clear

Evangelical Christians Standing with our Catholic Brethren against The Obama Regime

Has the Anti-Christ Appeared?

Voting American Stands with our Catholic Brethren

From the Catholic Exchange we read:

On January 20, 2012, the Obama administration announced that faith-based institutions must cover free contraception for employees. While mainstream media tries to pass this off as merely covering “the pill,” it also includes sterilization and abortifacients. (See the AP story here.) Regardless, Catholics (and other religious denominations) are being forced to accept insurance coverage for procedures and chemicals that are mortally dangerous, both physically and spiritually. What’s more, we’re being forced to pay for others to accept such coverage also, or go without health care coverage ourselves. Of course, the administration attempted to soften the blow by allowing faith-based entities until August 2013 to make the necessary changes to their insurance packages.

The Obama administration timed the announcement perfectly – right smack in the middle of the United States Bishops ad limina visits with the Holy Father during which the threat to our religious liberty is a primary concern, and just before the March for Life in Washington, DC.

On Thursday, January 19, Pope Benedict XVI remarked about this in his address to Region IV of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB):

“In the light of these considerations, it is imperative that the entire Catholic community in the United States come to realize the grave threats to the Church’s public moral witness presented by a radical secularism which finds increasing expression in the political and cultural spheres. The seriousness of these threats needs to be clearly appreciated at every level of ecclesial life. Of particular concern are certain attempts being made to limit that most cherished of American freedoms, the freedom of religion. Many of you have pointed out that concerted efforts have been made to deny the right of conscientious objection on the part of Catholic individuals and institutions with regard to cooperation in intrinsically evil practices. Others have spoken to me of a worrying tendency to reduce religious freedom to mere freedom of worship without guarantees of respect for freedom of conscience.” 

English: Pope Benedict XVI during general audition

The Holy Father cited this as a “grave threat” in which we’re being forced to cooperate in “intrinsically evil practices.”

We Americans have been losing our Freedoms at break neck speed since the Election of one Barack Hussein Obama and we must draw a line in the sand now lest we lose Our Religious Freedoms as well.

WAKE UP AMERICA: A Painting is Worth a Thousand Words…..and more

From The Blaze:

Painting of Obama Trampling Constitution Resurfaces, Artist‘s New Work Tells ’Enslaved‘ Americans to ’Wake Up!’

Some may already be familiar with the image featured above. For those who aren’t, it is painting titled “The Forgotten Man” which features President Obama trampling on the Constitution while an astonished James Madison pleads with him to stop. To the side, a man sits on a park bench in the throes of depression while 43 presidents look on. The painting, which uses discarded dollar bills and scraps of paper with individual constitutional amendments scrawled onto them.

The Blaze first reported on artist Jon McNaughton’s controversial rendition back in 2010 when the artwork was released. Now, however, McNauughton’s Forgotten Man has resurfaced and is making its rounds across the internet again after appearing on Rachel Maddow’s blog on Thursday.

In a video that accompanied The Forgotten Man’s release, the politically charged McNaughton revealed, “For a long time I didn’t know if I wanted to paint this picture, because I worried it might be too controversial.”

He explained that the man on the park bench “represents every man, woman, and child who is an American“ and who ”hopes to find the American dream of happiness and prosperity.” The artist added, “But now because of unconstitutional acts imposed on the American people by our government we stand on the precipice of disasters.”

The artists’ work can be found at McNaughton Fine Art (though the site appeared to be down, at least temporarily on Friday evening) and on his Facebook Page. A search of McNaughton’s postings on Facebook reveal a number of paintings with strong political and religious themes including another provocative work released in October 2011 titled “Wake Up America.” The image features Obama smiling on the stump while shackled Americans gather around him. From the artist’s YouTube page:

America Needs To Return To This

Win, Lose or Draw in 2012: Civil Unrest and Violence are Coming to America

Greetings America,

As we watch this Divisive President in his attempts to Divide our America one can only wonder what would be the results of a total Republican Sweep in 2012.  My best guess is that the Left would rise up in revolt and we would see widespread Civil Unrest across our Nation much like we have seen in Wisconsin and Ohio not to mention all the Vulgar Protests across this land coming from the Occupy Wall Street Mob. 

If President Obama is Re-Elected I can see wide spread Civil Unrest coming from the Hard Core Right Wingers (not necessarily the Tea Party) but the Really Hard Core Right Wingers.

Either way, there is going to be a War of Ideologies in America that has been Perpetrated by the Socialist Progressives who wish to Transform America from one of Freedom and Personal Liberty to one of Oppression and Government Control over our lives. 

I am on the Right side of this Argument and am holding fast to America’s Founding Document:  The United States Constitution! 

America became the Greatest Nation the World has ever known because of Our Constitution and Our Christian/Judea Beliefs.  There is no question about this being the facts of Our Greatness and High Standard of Living.  To allow a few to take away from the many would be a crime against Humanity in this writers opinion, and I along with countless others are ready, willing and able to Fight in Preserving this, the Last Best Hope for all of Mankind.

There’s a Fight Coming America and there is no Denying it Anymore

America’s Religious Freedom Succumbs to Political Correctness: Thanksgiving and Christmas now nothing more than a Holiday Festival

Nativity Scenes Removed from all Government Properties

The Right to Own and Bare Arms being Challenged

Faith in God under attack across America

Where will it end America?  Our Freedoms are slipping away at record speed and soon it will be gone forever.  How is it that a handful of Atheist have managed to remove our Freedom of Expression in displaying Religious Symbols throughout our land?  How is it that our Government now Dictates our Health Care Rights? How is it our right to Bare Arms is now being challenged?  These are just a few of the many Freedoms being removed from our Constitutional Rights.  There is no mention anywhere in our Constitution about the Separation of Church and State. Our Forefathers came here in pursuit of Religious Freedom! They sought a land where Government could not and would not intervene in their God-given right to Worship Freely.

Freedom is never more than one Generation away from Extinction.
We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be Fought
for, Protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day We
will spend our Sunset Years telling our Children and our Children’s
Children what it was once like in the United States when Men were Free.

Our God Given Right

The Separation of Church and State

Was never intended to Diminish our Religious Freedom but rather to Protect it!

Coming Soon: TEA PARTY…..TV

Tea Party Gets Its Own Colonial America TV Show

Made by Tea Partiers

A group of Tea Party members in California are about to premier the first hour-long episode of a new series called “Courage, New Hampshire,” which follows early colonial Americans.

“I’d like to concentrate on some of the regular folk who made the Revolution possible,” James Patrick Riley, the man behind the show and its production company, told The Hollywood Reporter (THR), “mix the narrative tension of The Sopranos and the redemptive, heroic American exceptionalism of Frank Capra.”

“Most TV sitcoms and dramas tend to depict conservatives and traditionalists and people of faith as halfwits. That tactic lost its edge about four decades ago and we think it’s time to turn the tables,” he added.

The first episode, titled “The Travail of Sarah Pine,“ follows a colonial woman who accuses a British soldier of ”bastardy.” It’s premiering at a theater in Monrovia, CA on Sunday. After that, it will head straight to DVD as Riley and his company, Colony Bay, look for a distribution partner.

Tea Partiers now have their own TV show. Literally.

The episode was filmed on Riley’s sprawling, 760-acre apple and pear farm. And even though the film and its producers are Tea Partiers, Riley admits that he’s not opposed to employing liberals. In fact, he told THR, “We have cast members who are raging leftists.”

But despite Hollywood’s reputation for harboring those leftists, Riley said the city actually has its share of conservatives.

“I was surprised to learn how many Tea Partiers there are in Hollywood,” Riley said. “Most won’t talk about it, though.”

This is America!….. Love it or Leave it

I am the Democratic, Republican Liberal – Progressive’s Worst Nightmare.
I am a White, Conservative, Tax-Paying, American Veteran.

I believe in God and the freedom of religion, but I don’t push it on others.
I  drive American-made cars and I believe in American products and buy them whenever I can.

I believe the money I make belongs to me and not some liberal governmental functionary, Democratic or Republican, that wants to share it with others who don’t work!

I’m in touch with my feelings and I like it that way!

I think owning a gun doesn’t make you a killer; it makes you a smart American.

I think being a minority does not make you noble or victimized, and does not entitle you to anything. Get over it!

I believe that if you are selling me a Big Mac or any other item, you should do it in English.

I believe there should be no other language option.

I believe everyone has a right to pray to his or her God when and where they want to.

I don’t hate the rich.  I don’t pity the poor.

I’ve never owned a slave, nor was I a slave. I haven’t burned any witches or been persecuted by the Turks, and neither have you.

I believe if you don’t like the way things are here, go back to where you came from and change your own country!

This is AMERICA …We like it the way it is and more so the way it was …so stop trying to change it to look like Russia or China , or some other socialist country!

If you were born here and don’t like it… you are free to move to any Socialist country that will have you. I believe it is time to really clean house, starting with the White House, the seat of our biggest problems.

I want to know which church is it, exactly, where the Reverend Jesse Jackson preaches, where he gets his money, and why he is always part of the problem and not the solution?

Can I get an AMEN on that one?

I also think the cops have the right to pull you over if you’re breaking the law, regardless of what color you are.

And, no, I don’t mind having my face shown on my driver’s license. I think it’s good….  And I’m proud that ‘God’ is written on my money..

I think if you are too stupid to know how a ballot works, I don’t want you deciding who should be running the most powerful nation in the world for the next four years.

I dislike those people standing in the intersections trying to sell me stuff or trying to guilt me into making ‘donations’ to their cause….  Get a job and do your part to support yourself and your family!

I believe that it doesn’t take a village to raise a child, it takes two parents

I believe ‘illegal’ is illegal no matter what the lawyers think!

I believe the American flag should be the only one allowed in AMERICA !

If this makes me a BAD American, then yes, I’m a BAD American.

We want our country back!
My Country…..
I hope this offends all illegal aliens.
