Since the days of the cultural revolution, that would be the 60’s not Mao’s, I have not heard the use of God-less anything and in those days I was a “God-less Commie” and then as the years wore on….I was many things…..a pinko fag…..a peacenik……a socialist…..and now I am just a liberal….in all that time my ideals have not changed that much….I have modified some to be more realistic but the basics are still the same….so I thought I had heard the last of the lame argument of being somehow “God-less”.
Well, I was mistaken…..as written in his blog, Jonathan Turley said…….
Pastor Mike Stahl is the head of an “internet church” called the Church of the Living Water and has drawn national attention due to a proposal he made a year ago: a national registry for atheists. We have seen religious and political leaders in the last year attacking atheists and even comparing them to terrorists. Stahl’s proposed national registry is the natural outgrowth of such demagoguery.
Here is Stahl’s proposal:
Brothers and Sisters , I have been seriously considering forming a ( Christian ) grassroots type of organization to be named “The Christian National Registry of Atheists” or something similar . I mean, think about it. There are already National Registrys for convicted sex offenders, ex-convicts, terrorist cells, hate groups like the KKK, skinheads, radical Islamists, etc..
So, if I am an atheist I am in the same category as a sex offender? And how does this moron decide who goes on the list? Will there be a time limit…like if you have not been to church in 10 years….then you must be an atheist.
This from a pastor of a religious movement that prides itself on tolerance…..Christianity.
This type of crap, and yes I said CRAP, is why I am a deist……God exist but does not interfere nor care what one does with one’s life…..I shall always rail against those like this screaming a/hole. When will we as a society have enough of people interfering in others lives?
