There are many things I do not believe in, or enjoy, that others do. I say good for them, and to be honest, most Atheists are just as tolerant of religious people. But then there are those ass hats that simply cannot stand anyone who dares have faith in Deity. Can you say insecure?

DR. PAUL VITZ: THE PSYCHOLOGY OF ATHEISM (PART 1)
So, very tired of these bullies and their dirt bag lawyers
Hundreds of people gathered in Gainesville, Ga., to defend religious liberty Wednesday after an atheist group demanded a local high school remove religion from its football team.
The American Humanist Association sent a letter to officials at Chestatee High School Tuesday, threatening to sue if the football coaches don’t quit praying with the team, and if all biblical or religious messages are not removed from team documents, Fox News reports.
More than 200 people showed up for a prayer rally on the Chestatee football field Wednesday to protest the letter.
“We have received reports that CHS coaches have joined players in prayer while standing in a circle, hands interlocked,” the letter stated, according to Fox News. The group, writing on behalf of an unidentified resident, also complained about a banner, written by cheerleaders, that reads “Iron Sharpens Iron, Proverbs 21:17,” and that the team workout schedule references a verse in Galatians.
To me, reading the First Amendment makes a clear case here.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
OK, let’s see. The coaches, and schools are NOT Congress, they are NOT making ANY LAWS creating a State Church. But they ARE freely exercising their right to practice their religion. So, what is the problem here? Oh yes, that’s right, these Atheists are leftists, and they are OFFENDED! And Leftism IS an ideology for the narcissistic, so therefore everyone else must cave to the narcissistic Leftist bullies or else!
A serious question for radical Atheists who lose their flipping minds when they hear the word God, why does something you DO NOT believe in offend you so?
An Atheist Group at Clemson University is offended, because a football coach has been using certain words on the field, they feel are promoting “religious coercion.”
Larry O’Connor succinctly stated:
“Clemson Tigers football coach Dabo Swinney has been targeted by a group called The Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF) out of Wisconsin. The organization has accused coach Swinney’s program of being saturated with “Christian worship.”
One of Swinney’s offenses is the use of his favorite motivational saying: “Run your race to win, don’t just run the race.” Nevermind that it could have come from a Dale Carnegie book or a Steven Covey seminar: the phrase is from 1 Corinthians 9:24-25, so clearly Swinney is engaged in the establishment of a state religion here. Can’t you see it?”
Another complaint from the Freedom to Whine Incessantly or whatever the aggrieved groups calls itself is that Swinney, and other coaches have, brace yourself,
Swinney directly hiring the team chaplain (even Clemson policy says the players should choose), to coaches participating in testimonials and bible studies, to buses being organized to transport the entire team to “Church Day” at a local Baptist Church.
OH NO! Not that! Not coaches sharing their faith! My God, what is next if we allow this? I mean college football players and coaches exercising their liberties? Heaven forbid!
Here is an idea for the Freedom to be Royal Pains in Everyone’s Asses Foundation Try being a bit tolerant for a change! You are nothing but a group of pin-headed bigots and bullies who cannot stand the thought of anyone, anywhere acting as they see fit without clearing it with Collectivists like you first!! And, I hope that Clemson plays your favorite school next year and beats the 84 to 0!
Donald Douglas looks at the case of the Mt. Soledad Cross and the Atheist whiners who hate it
At Michelle Malkin’s, “Cruciphobia at Mt. Soledad“:
Consider this: Taylor Swift wasn’t even born yet when the fight over the Mount Soledad cross began. How much longer will it drag on? Disgruntled atheists first filed suit over the memorial at a veterans park in San Diego in the summer of 1989. The fringe grievance-mongers have clung bitterly to their litigious activities for nearly a quarter-century. It’s time to let go and bring peace to the city.
The historic 43-foot cross (29 feet tall on a 14-foot base) has stood atop Mount Soledad on public land since 1954. The Mount Soledad Memorial Association erected the monument to commemorate the sacrifice of American soldiers who died in the Korean War, World War I and World War II. The cross has long carried meaning for the city’s residents far beyond religious symbolism. “It’s a symbol of coming of age and of remembrance,” Pastor Mark Slomka of the Mount Soledad Presbyterian Church said years ago when the case erupted. The San Diego Union-Tribune editorial board explained that the cross is “much like the Mission San Diego de Alcala and the cross at Presidio Park, both of which also are rooted in Christianity but have come to signify the birth of San Diego.” I first started covering the case as an editorial writer at the Los Angeles Daily News in the early 1990s. A federal judge initially ruled that the landmark cross’s presence violated the California constitution’s church-state separation principles. The city of San Diego put the issue before voters, who overwhelmingly approved a practical solution in 2005: Sell the cross and the park to the veterans group for use in a national war memorial.
A pragmatic, tolerant resolution with 76 percent of voters’ support? Heavens, no! The extreme secularists couldn’t have that. They sued and sued and sued and sued. By 2007, the state Supreme Court — affirmed by a state appellate court — had rejected the atheists’ campaign. The courts affirmed the constitutionality of the San Diego referendum (Proposition A) and the sale of the cross to the Mount Soledad Memorial Association. The American Civil Liberties Union intervened to suppress and “de-publish” the ruling as a way to prevent its use in future litigation. They lost.
Lawyers for the Thomas More Law Center, which represented filed a friend of the court brief on behalf of the memorial association, were relieved: “This decision protects the will of the people and their desire to preserve a historical veterans memorial for future generations.” They’ve fought hard to remind America that the Founding Fathers fought for freedom of religion, not freedom from religion. [Correction: The memorial association is represented by the Liberty Institute. More info here.]
But still the cross-hunters press on. Fast-forward to Christmas week 2013. U.S. District Court Judge Larry Burns, who earlier had ruled in support of the cross, was forced to rule that it must come down in 90 days in the wake of a liberal 9th Circuit Court of Appeals decision overturning his prior decision. In anticipation of new appeals, Burns stayed the order. All eyes are on the U.S. Supreme Court, which refused to hear the case last summer…
Pathetic! The fact that these intolerant bastards were not sated when the land was sold to a private owner exposes their true agenda. That agenda is to erase every last vestige of Christianity from public view. This is not about “church and state”, it is about a hatred for everything that is part of traditional American culture. If there was ever a story that proves my belief that we can never appease the far-left this is it. The Leftists are absolutely committed to their crusade to eradicate everything that defines America.We must be equally committed to stopping their campaign of cultural genocide.
Lots of folks ask why radical atheists are so hateful and intolerant towards Christianity. Well, the narcissism of the left plays into it, as does their need to control but, to me the answer is this. America recognizes the right not to be religious. You hold a right here not to believe in God. Atheists ought to be fine with that. But, a hatred burns in them for any mention of God, Christmas, Santa Claus, anything even remotely Christian, why? Well imagine being an Atheist in a country where you are free to believe your way. Now imagine that you know, where that right comes from. No, not from our Constitution. That document protects that right, but recognizes that such a right already exists. And the source for that right? Well, according to our Founders, that right is a natural right, and where do natural rights come from? Yes, from our Creator. So, imagine being a radical atheist who knows that their right NOT to be religious comes from the one thing they most despise, God.
Ever wonder what would have happened if we had stood up to Atheist bullies instead of appeasing their intolerance?
Via Fox News:
The Baby Jesus has been kicked off Shaw Air Force Base in South Carolina, according to an organization who relishes any opportunity to eradicate Christianity from the U.S. military.
The Military Religious Freedom Foundation praised officials at Shaw Air Force Base for removing a Nativity scene located near Memorial Lake on Friday. The traditional Nativity included plastic statues of Mary, Joseph, the Baby Jesus and an assortment of animals.
Apparently, an undisclosed number of Airmen were so emotionally troubled by the sight of a manger scene that they immediately notified the MRFF.
I can only imagine the psychological damage they must have suffered as a result of glancing at the plastic statues. I hope no one needed hospitalization, God forbid.
The MRFF’s Paul Loebe wrote in a statement that since the display was not erected near a chapel, it was illegal. [...]
Loebe swiftly alerted MRFF President Mikey Weinstein who then called his BFF’s at the Pentagon. That led to an immediate investigation and more than two hours later, the Nativity had been removed.
