Why my god is the right god.

Unfortunately, in our quest for a secular government, secularists have succeeded in using the public schools to divorce instruction in religious belief from the education of children. That is not a healthy situation, and it is why so many of us don’t understand that God gives us our rights, not government. It is why so many people don’t understand why we celebrate Independence Day, not Constitution Day.

Effectively, in our quest to avoid allowing our government to establishing a religion, we have allowed Secularists to promote Secularism. Godlessness, the belief we don’t need to pay any attention to any notion of God is a religious belief. Thus, the First Amendment prohibits the Federal Government from establishing a religion, not the free exercise of religion, and it is time we considered the difference.

THE “RIGHT” TO MAKE OTHERS SIN

Unfortunately, in our quest for a secular government, secularists have succeeded in using the public schools to divorce instruction in Islam from the education of children. That is not a healthy situation, and it is why so many of us don’t understand that Allah gives us our rights, not government.

  1. Went to Citizen Tom’s blog to read the post — also found Tricia there (haha) — and there are a ridiculuos amount of presuppositions about our Founding Fathers and government formation ON TOP OF the same for God, the Judeo-Christian narrative, presuppostions in theology, and let alone marked bias to ONE world-view lens… that an initial comment would damn near be completely disconnected from his “imaginative” foundation for his subsequent House-of-Cards. :/

    How (and why) do you find these people Ark!? LOL 😛

      1. I do not seek them out. I encounter them along the way ….
        Or in the case of someone like Bruce, he often comes to my blog whenever there is tag that suggests ‘Christianity’.

  2. Those clowns refuse to learn, refuse to align their beliefs with reality, refuse to be honest, refuse to be responsible and accountable for their beliefs, refuse to exercise integrity, and refuse to put aside their towering arrogance to even consider why being so deceitful and dishonest so consistently is actually a condemnation of just how bankrupt of virtue is their piety. That’s why they rewrite history. That’s why they so stupidly act so assiduously to undermine their own freedom of religion… as well as undermine the right for dependent others to also exercise this freedom.

    Their brains are religious dysfunction in action.

    I don’t pity the fools because they live only to advance their own idiotic gullibility; I pity those over whom they have some level of control, some level of legal sway, some ability to indoctrinate, an ability to cause harm to others with their religiously-sanctioned vice, and I am angry that the law allows them the privilege to do so without adequate responsibility for their deplorable actions.

    But I’m sure Tom et al are very nice people but they’re just completely deluded morons.

    1. Here is the perfect example of this religious dysfunction type behaviour from Wally’s site, these children are disadvantaged from broken families etc. Even though these Christians may have some good intentions for these children these guys do not give any thoughts or take any responsibility for the children’s rights to a free choice while they are at their most vulnerable ages and states of mind. These children deserve far more respect for their future lives than they receive from religious indoctrinators. https://truthinpalmyra.wordpress.com/2017/07/10/well-its-over-but-does-it-have-to-be-2/

      1. Thanks, SKLYJD. This a great illustration of the typical dishonesty and manipulation of the dysfunction inherent in religiously-motivated ‘giving’.

        A non religious camp for disadvantaged kids? Great! Look at reason: to take these kids out of their daily lives for a week and give them a camp experience. The intention is giving. It’s an act of altruism. It’s all about the kids. No kids, no camp.

        A Christian camp for disadvantaged kids? Great. Look at the reason: to use the vulnerability of the kids to then indoctrinate them in exchange for a week at camp. The intention is to trap kids into connecting the benefits of camp with the religious belief. It’s conditional. It is an act of exchange. It’s all about promoting the religion. No religion, no camp.

        Same act – holding a camp for disadvantaged kids -: two very different intentions.

        Now, here’s the thing: I think the first camp – the act of giving unconditionally by the organizers – is of greater moral value as well as an act closer to pure altruism, than the second. I think this is obvious. There’s no middleman, so to speak. Yet how often do we meet up with the accusation that ‘without God’ one’s actions are much more likely to be immoral and self-centered?

        Religion is such a despicable thief – taking credit for anything and everything good that it only later inserts itself into, while avoiding responsibility for anything bad – that those who enable this thievery really are blinded to how they enable religious hypocrisy. This camp Wally touts as if an altruistic example of some terrific altruism reveals what the intentions are in action, and so we see the immorality of purpose and manipulation of kids and the undermining of moral integrity necessary, yet the Wallys of this world don’t see it. They don’t see how their elevated sense of ‘niceness’ and ‘godliness’ are antithetical in reality: the same action by a non believer versus a believer in this case is closer to some honest expression of altruism than by the believer using religion as the cause and motivator for it. And this means the believer has accepted less responsibility for personal actions (Just following religious orders, donchaknow) than the non believer who must shoulder full responsibility for personal actions.

        1. They are as you say blinded to religious hypocrisy and supporting your comments this paragraph below is an example of Colour storm who commented on Wally’s previous post about the camp for disadvantaged kids that:

          ‘broken things’ can only be restored, repaired, or made right, PERMANENTLY, not by the shallow super glue of godlessness or drugs, but of repair that comes by the creator and Redeemer of mankind, who alone, makes all things a new.” “God’s word answers all issue of life.”

          Of course, I challenged this (until my comments were threatened with deletion) as he is suggesting specialised care, drugs and professional help is seen as ungodly and only God can repair these children’s problems. If this is not extreme and dangerous enough, the next step for such fanatics would be an exorcism. Can you imagine that? I feel so sorry for these poor kids as many of them do not have any real family or guardians who may have been able to protect them.

          1. These are just some of the kids in the US whose parents have followed ColorStorm’s advice. The list does not include those who have suffered permanent physical damage nor any psychological distress, nor cases on ongoing neglect and abuse. People like CS continue to believe in the piety of their beliefs regardless of real world evidence of real world suffering to real world people and this is what makes him and his ilk so deplorable. He loves his beliefs more than he cares for the welfare of others… but he won’t see this fact through his reality-warping religious framing.

      2. They always target the most vulnerable. I met a devout Christian on a discussion forum several years back. The discussion was about demon possession and deliverance. He’s from Australia and attended one of those church camps when he was in his teens. He shared that he wasn’t a believer until after he witnessed a kid drop to the ground and start convulsing, making “growling” sounds, and foaming at the mouth.

        What did the youth minister do? He didn’t call an ambulance or ask for medical assistance. Nono, he called for the staff and kids to gather around, hold hands and pray in the name of Jesus that he be delivered of demons. Within a few minutes the kid stopped convulsing. The guy on the forum said he witnessed the power of god that day, and has never looked back. This man has a college education and is a school teacher. I shared medical data with him on the symptoms of epilepsy, and that these seizures only last a few minutes, but it was to no avail. Willful ignorance.

        The kid could have died while these idiots were piously pumping themselves up with dope (dopamine). How many people have to die or experience significant harm before these people will give up their drug addiction.

  3. I’m starting to ask myself, “Are they really that nice ? After all, their willing – and gleeful – self-delusions are energetically foisted upon others and covered in a mantle of moral superiority. How nice is that? 😦

      1. Just finished an article here for the Times dealing with school prayer. It’s hilarious to see these nutter freak out when you say, “Okay, so today let’s here the Muslim call to prayer.”
