Atheist Hypocrisy

Atheism as a Religion: A Book Excerpt

"A quote on the monument states, "An atheist believes a hospital should be built instead of a Church." Little do they acknowledge it was religious temples in Greece, Egypt and other places that first served as hospitals, the numerous hospitals built by Christian charities in the United States, and that atheists have yet to build a hospital in the USA. In the article, the atheists are very explicit about where their priorities are: building 50 more religious monuments to atheism. Perhaps a better quote for the atheist monument would read, "An atheist is someone who says they want a hospital in place of a Church, but then settles for erecting a religious monument to atheism instead." Not soon after this monument was erected, the Sunday Assembly began its cross-country trip across America raising money for…the atheist Church. Atheists may say they want a hospital instead of a Church, but as atheism in practice demonstrates, their first priorities are monuments and places of atheist worship."

Tea Party in Action, Missouri Style

Headline:
After Hearing What a Tea Party Group Recently Did in Ferguson, You Likely Won’t Be Surprised That You Haven’t Heard About It

"The story won’t spark controversy or make many front pages, but there is some good happening in Ferguson, Missouri, in the aftermath of the unrest following the police-involved shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

Many local businesses in Ferguson were vandalized, looted, and even set on fire as demonstrators took to the streets to protest the shooting. Sadly, innocent business owners have been left to foot the bills. This is where the St. Louis Tea Party realized they could help.

The group spread the word of the “BUYcott” event on Facebook, hoping to get at least 20 people to show up and spend their hard-earned money at local Ferguson businesses on August 21. They apparently ended up with a group of about 40 “(mostly) white people” — and something amazing happened.
BuyCott

They reportedly targeted small businesses who “were hit hard by violence–violence committed (mostly) by out of town agitators, criminals, vandals, and hooligans.”"
Taking some business to the Ferguson shop keepers is part of the old America. In the New America, the Leftist politicians get rich, live in gated communities, and then have Holder demand more integration in other communities.

And like the title of the article says, any actions like this (outside of the government, fer cryin' out loud) will not show up on the Leftist media news. It's hard to make a racist connection, doncha know. Much like the Christian NGOs that worked on the Katrina disaster for years afterward, there's no story there that any Leftist wants to hear.

The Unbearable Pain of Being TERF

There comes a time in the inclusionary business when exclusion is necessary in order to preserve the inclusion. This paradox/non--coherence has come about for the TERFs, a group of feminists who exclude transsexuals from the legitimacy of "being female", and thus the appellation, Trans-Excusionary Radical Feminists (TERFs).

Now over at PZs place, TERFs get bashed because they aren't as inclusive as are PZs guys, who are excluding TERFs from legitimacy due to their exclusion. Or something like that. It doesn't have to make sense, other than that "we are the most inclusive EVAH, and we exclude you because you aren't as inclusive as we deem it moral to be".

So the exclusionary TERFs are excluded by the inclusionary but exclusives at PZs place. Which, BTW, is commenting on how assholes are ruining both Atheism and gaming, and figuring out how to exclude the assholes who aren't inclusive enough...

Can't make this up.

"Free The Nipple" and the Ta Ta Top

Of course it had to happen, and it sort of happened in the '60s, but now it's more than just burning their bras and swinging free under a tank top. Feminists now want full upperbody equality with men. Men can take off their shirts in public and bare their nipples. So feminists want that right also. Hence, the Free The Nipple Movement.
"Free The Nipple has become a “real life” equality movement that’s sparked a national dialogue. Famous graffiti artists, groups of dedicated women, and influencers such as Miley Cyrus, Liv Tyler, and Lena Dunham have shown public support which garnered international press and created a viral #FreeTheNipple campaign. The issues we’re addressing are equal rights for men and women, a more balanced system of censorship, and legal rights for all women to breastfeed in public."
Until they gain their actual nipple freedom they have the Ta Ta Top, which is faux nudity in the form of a pink bikini top with painted on nipples.


Well, it's a poor second to freeing the nipples.

Atheism Definitions

I should have started this long ago, and I belatedly do so now. I'm starting a new category of Definitions of Atheism. It seems as if every Atheist wants his own definition, and that dovetails with the general self-ness which Atheism confers upon its adherents. In fact, many will reject any definition but their own. So I'll collect those I find.

Here's one now:
"As far as the exact meaning of atheism goes, in the general sense of the term, it is the rejection of beliefs that embrace the worship of deities."

It's Not A Conspiracy If They're Actually Corrupt: Fraud and the CDC

This is big news. An author of a CDC paper admits, in writing, that portions of data damaging to the use of MMR vaccines was purposefully excised from his 2004 report. This amounts to fraud, visited on at least a portion of the American public. How much else has been fraudulently withheld is anybody's guess.
My name is William Thompson. I am a Senior Scientist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, where I have worked since 1998.

I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics. The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism. Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected, and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed.

I want to be absolutely clear that I believe vaccines have saved and continue to save countless lives. I would never suggest that any parent avoid vaccinating children of any race. Vaccines prevent serious diseases, and the risks associated with their administration are vastly outweighed by their individual and societal benefits.

My concern has been the decision to omit relevant findings in a particular study for a particular sub­ group for a particular vaccine. There have always been recognized risks for vaccination and I believe it is the responsibility of the CDC to properly convey the risks associated with receipt of those vaccines.

I have had many discussions with Dr. Brian Hooker over the last 10 months regarding studies the CDC has carried out regarding vaccines and neurodevelopmental outcomes including autism spectrum disorders. I share his beliefthat CDC decision-making and analyses should be transparent. I was not, however, aware that he was recording any of our conversations, nor was I given any choice regarding whether my name would be made public or my voice would be put on the Internet.

I am grateful for the many supportive e-mails that I have received over the last several days.

I will not be answering further questions at this time. I am providing information to Congressman William Posey, and of course will continue to cooperate with Congress. I have also offered to assist with reanalysis of the study data or development of further studies. For the time being, however, I am focused on my job and my family.

Reasonable scientists can and do differ in their interpretation of information. I will do everything I can to assist any unbiased and objective scientists inside or outside the CDC to analyze data collected by the CDC or other public organizations for the purpose of understanding whether vaccines are associated with an increased risk of autism. There are still more questions than answers, and I appreciate that so many families are looking for answers from the scientific community.

My colleagues and supervisors at the CDC have been entirely professional since this matter became public. In fact, I received a performance-based award after this story came out. I have experienced no pressure or retaliation and certainly was not escorted from the building, as some have stated.

Another Settled Science bites the dust. The CDC continues to generate scandals. But they still give out awards, regardless.

If someone gives you trouble regarding either vaccine safety or settled science, hit them squarely in the face with a copy of this article, printed on the medium of your choice.

Well, He DOES Have An Exit Strategy, Always

Obama confesses: ‘We don’t have a strategy yet’ for Islamic State

"President Obama acknowledged Thursday he doesn’t have a plan for defeating Islamist militants in Syria and backed away from imminent military action, while he also downplayed reports of a new Russian invasion in Ukraine.

“We don’t have a strategy yet,” Mr. Obama said of his plans for defeating the Islamic State in Syria. “We need to make sure that we’ve got clear plans. As our strategy develops, we will consult with Congress.”
Or we could just play golf until the middle east is stabilized under the "JayVees". Exit strategies is all he's ever had, and since he's fired all the generals that don't agree with him, that's what we'll get. A Unified Theory Of Exiting In Advance. Maybe he'll release some more Gitmo guys in return for not invading the USA under his administration... That might get him another igNobel Peace Prize.

Quote of the Day

"Atheism, after all, is as much a religion as any other in that it is a belief system that can’t be tested, which is the definition of religion. You can no more prove the nonexistence of God than you can prove His existence. Of course, Dawkins’s book The God Delusion, has sold more than 2 million copies and been translated into 31 languages, so perhaps it was a commercial decision to be an atheist."

Kevin Sorbo, the "Atheist" in "God Is Not Dead", Offends Atheists

Kevin Sorbo Comments About Atheists Offend Many On Both Sides

"Kevin Sorbo’s comments about Atheists anger toward religion and God have upset many atheists. In a recent interview Sorbo shed light onto the reason atheists attack religious fundamentals about God is because they are subconciously scared that God is looking down on them and judging them.
"During a God Is Not Dead DVD promotional tour the 55-year-old Kevin Sorbo said, “Why are atheists so angry at something they don’t believe in?” — on Christian radio host Rick Wiles’ show Tuesday afternoon.
"Sorbo attempted to feel sympathetic towards atheists but then he quickly retracted when he said, “On the one hand,” he continued,
“I feel sorry for them, but then I kind of laugh at them. Why would anybody spend so much time ranting and raving about something they don’t believe in?”
Well, the poor Atheist darlings are constantly dyspeptic about nearly everything in this country. If they saw the movie, they likely have been dyspeptic ever since.

The correct answer to Sorbo is that Atheism attracts the chronically upset in the first place, those who pity themselves because they don't always get their way, so they wish to elevate their power somehow and without moral consequence, in order to better their lives by controlling and/or demeaning others. That is exactly why the FFRF attacks the small fry (only) and why Atheists demand an all Atheist government. It is why the televised and motion picture media is saturated in degradation. It is why the network news does not report over half of the news on any given day. Atheists overwhelmingly flow directly to the Left, where their messiahist totalitarian fantasies gain a fantasy sort of traction. But it galls them that a very high percentage of the US population deems them morally to be below scurrilous child molesters, because, after all, Atheists have no common set of morals. (Dawkins won't even say that Hitler was "wrong"). So avoiding interchanges with Atheists is seen as common sense, a rational form of discrimination, like not picking up dead rats with your bare hands.

Atheists have no firm grounding in either evidence or logic which can support their claims to be based in evidence and logic. So they are on purely emotional turf right from the get-go, and on through their entire existence. Being always on emotional after-burners has got to lead to tetchiness, so of course they lash out, no matter how friendly they advertise themselves to be.

When you hate something all the time (like moral constraint), that hate is bound to come out in anger, especially if you live in a culture which still values moral constraint, which you hate. Still, there is no pressure on Atheists to accept any morality or religion, other than whatever pressure arises from residual guilt which might be present in their vestigial consciences. So their claims of discrimination in modern America is without basis.

More succinctly, Atheists are angry because they are weak, intellectually and morally as well as in their own personal lives. Strong people don't rattle on about how they are discriminated against. Intellectuals can support their worldviews with disciplined logic and, if applicable, empirical data. Moral people don't make up their own morality to fit their personal proclivity. And people who are actually tolerant, tolerate other worldviews rather than try to wipe them out, and that's why Atheism has found free rein in western, previously Christian, nations which have been tolerant of their antics, so far.

But Kevin, there's no reason to feel sorry for Atheists; they feel plenty sorry for themselves. But don't laugh at them; use logic. That's what befuddles them. Then invite them in for a BLT and soda pop, and a nice chat.

Mohammed Is the Most Popular Name In...

...Oslo! It is already the most popular name in Britain.
"For the first time in the capital city's history, Mohammed is the common name for boys and men, said a study on Thursday."

Political Correctness Produces Child Rape En Masse

Revealed: How fear of being seen as racist stopped social workers saving up to 1,400 children from sexual exploitation at the hands of Asian men in just ONE TOWN
"Report found 1,400 children abused between 1997 and 2013 in Rotherham

The figure is likely to be a conservative estimate of the true scale

Victims terrorised with guns and doused in petrol and threatened with fire

More than a third of the cases were already know to agencies

Author of the report condemned 'blatant' failings by council's leadership

Action blocked by political correctness as staff 'feared appearing racist'

Majority of victims described the perpetrators as 'Asian' men

Leader of Rotherham Council has stepped down with immediate effect

No council employees will receive disciplinary action, leaders state"
The social workers should all be jailed, permanently. They are complicit in the rapes of children. They are without actual morals, other than Political Correctness, and perhaps fear of the possibly Islamic rapists.

Perhaps the rapists should be beheaded, now that Britain is Islamic and under Sharia.

And there is this:
Mulims are actively using white girl slavery in brothels in Europe.
Muslim Gang Rapists are Springing Up Everywhere. Why Can't We Be Honest About It?
Easy. The Leftist media is in the pocket of Islam, including terrorists, rapists and other holders of the "Religion of Peace". Being Atheist, the Leftist media is friends with anyone who attacks Christianity and Christians, anywhere in the world. It really doesn't matter that Muslims behead the occasional journalist; as Obama showed, that's no big deal for the Left. And the Leftist gnashing of teeth over providing defense for the Christians being mass murdered by ISIS is another fine demonstration of how the Left works.

[As an aside, this brings to mind how Teddy Roosevelt dealt with this sort of thing, as iconized in the movie, The Wind And The Lion, one of my favorites.]
