The Atheist Vendetta Against the Judeo-Christian Tradition Continues February 19, 2014

The militant atheists are at it again:

Administrators at a hotel run by Iowa State University have given the boot to Bibles in their guest rooms after protest from a religious separatist group.

The push to remove the books began when a guest at the Hotel Memorial Union complained to Freedom From Religion Foundation about the “unwelcome religious propaganda in the bedside table,” according to a local NBC News affiliate.

“We’re delighted to see reason and the Constitution prevailing,” Annie Laurie Gaylor, the foundation’s co-president, told the Blaze. “We can all sleep easier knowing secularism is being honored at our public universities.”

Annie Laurie Gaylor, who must have been mauled by Gideon Bibles as a child.

Yeah, because having a Gideon Bible in the bedstand table had us tossing and turning all night.

I mean, one might make the case that public universities shouldn’t spend money on Bibles for guests. But the university didn’t buy these Bibles: they were  a donation. The university didn’t advertise or promote them – they were just provided with the room like they are in virtually every hotel room in America.

This is another example of the rabid intolerance of Gaylor’s crowd. Pew Research estimates that nearly 80% of Americans identify as Christians, while 1.6% identify as atheists. But that 1.6% can’t coexist with the 80% (more, if you count non-Christian religions) – they won’t be happy until they live in a world where they never encounter religion. To bastardize the old Mencken quote:

Militant Atheism: the haunting fear that someone, somewhere is being exposed to Christianity.

I’m trying to imagine if the shoe was on the other foot. Hmmm. OK, I peek in the drawer and see either a Satanic Bible or a copy of It Takes a Village. I understand not wanting it in the room. I would probably take it and find a garbage can in the hall. I think I could sleep OK then. The little door chain thingy has been proven effective against Lucifer/Hillary print rays.

This kind of issue made Christians targets more than 2,000 years ago. At that time, Jewish Rabbi, Gamaliel, said: “…in the present case I advise you: Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God.” (Acts 5:38-39) LESSON FOR US! This stuff can’t stop God. I say bring it on!!!

Gideons International has a website filled with stories of individuals far ad wide who have been helped at a moment of crisis when fate led them to pick up one of their donated bibles. Freedom From Religion Foundation has blood on their hands. I doubt they are very much concerned.

It is wrong to suggest that atheists cannot coexist with religious people. They love muslims. Militant islam has promised to kill them last

I spent three years as a deacon of my church and I don’t obsess over Christianity (and we should admit that it’s Christianity, not religion they despise) the way militant atheists do.
