Christian Prof wants to disrupt atheist organizations

Christians are sore losers. Every time they lose a court decision (say, like Roe v Wade), they continue to try to fight it with every ounce of their being. It would be admirable if it wasn’t inspired by the insipid fantasy of religion. A recent ruling from the Supreme Court has them all fired up again. It ruled Christian campus groups could not continue to benefit from equal access to school facilities if they practiced discrimination against gays. Although they said any healthy society must tolerate the existence of such groups (since it’s their legal right to exist), the government should not be in the business of helping these organizations in any way.

As you would expect, fundies aren’t too happy about this ruling, and one UNC Wilminton teacher by the name of Mike Adams has vowed to seek revenge on – wait for it – atheist organizations.

…when I get back to the secular university in August, I plan to round up the students I know who are most hostile to atheism. Then I’m going to get them to help me find atheist-haters willing to join atheist student groups across the South. I plan to use my young fundamentalist Christian warriors to undermine the mission of every group that disagrees with me on the existence of God.

That means an invading group can turn a smaller, weaker group into second class citizens on campus. That’s what I intend to do to those groups who do not believe in God.

I do not seek robust debate. I seek power over the godless heathen dissident.

Well, at the very least he’s honest about his intentions. It’s surprisingly refreshing when religionists stop pussyfooting around and correctly point out that they seek to have power and dominion over others who don’t see the world the way they do. So at the very least, I’d like to officially thank Mikey for his honesty.

Before you panic at the thought of your group being taken over by religious fundamentalists, Daylight Atheism points out that if Adams and his religious posse really want to join these secular groups, they’ll need to pay the fees and abide by the charters of these specific groups. If things got really bad, these atheist groups could openly discriminate against non-believers and suffer the same timid penalties that their religious, discriminatory counterparts do.

I actually have a pretty simple solution that would ensure that these religious wackos would think twice about joining: just make it so anyone who joins has to take a specific pledge that they deny the Holy Spirit. It might not mean much to us non-believers, but the Bible is pretty clear anyone who specifically denies the Holy Spirit is condemned to Hell (no take-backs). That should be enough to keep these fundies at bay, honestly. Remember these morons know very little about us, but we know how they operate, and more importantly, how they think (since so many of us used to be religious at one time). Advantage atheists!

    This may be off-topic but I am curious about something. I’m in Atlanta and I joined a local meetup.com atheist group. I would love to talk with atheist and learn from them but I wasn’t sure if this was cool.

    What is the general consensus about a Christian coming to an atheist meetup group just to hang out, drink beer and learn about a non-theist point of view?

    I don’t want to disrupt the meeting and I don’t want to try to convert anyone.

    Thanks!

    ^ You seem more curious than anything else, man. It’s not that theists are discouraged (far from it), but people actively trying to disrupt membership should not be tolerated. Besides, you can participate without actually being a member most of the time. You’ll find we atheists are generally pretty open.

    I love the way those “Well-Behaved” Christians kindly inform us of their intentions. Talk about sneaky back-room maneuvers.

    This fell into a romantic rationalization we can’t escape of seeing from those wackos; The single Christian facing down the hordes of heathens with nothing but some chosen bible verses and their faith in Jesus. It follows the rhetoric of all those chick cartoons; the “Soldier of God” will cite some verses of the bible and the hordes of Atheists will collapse on their knees, vowing allegiance to Jesus and banish reason from their minds.

    I think it could be fun to see them try.

    “just make it so that anyone who joins has to take a specific pledge that they deny the Holy Spirit.”

    That may work for Christians and Jews, but doesn’t the Qu’ran make provisions for hiding/denying one’s faith? Wait… I know. Just server pork at the next meeting.

    Great article! I would contend, however, that we know how fundies don’t think. If they started thinking, we would have to welcome them to the club.

    I like your idea about requiring them to blaspheme against the holy spirit. I’m sure that would turn away 99.5% of the subversives. Why not? After all, if you want to join Campus Crusade, you have to subscribe to their 17-point statement of faith. I am not sure how they check up on you, but I feel sure that they have ways . . . .
