Now, if you're a Christian, are you aware of just what exactly the atheists agenda is?
I decided to check around, and see what some fellow Christians were saying:
[Editor's Note: I will do a follow up poll in the near future to show awareness on this particular issue.]
Here are two; in a variety of the answers I received:
Its not that hard to understand what is behind the atheistic mind. It is called nameless despair. To the unbelieving materialist, man is simply an evolutionary accident. His hopes of survival are strung on a figment of mortal imagination; his fears, loves, longings, and beliefs are but the reaction of the incidental juxtaposition of certain lifeless atoms of matter. No display of energy nor expression of trust can carry him beyond the grave. The devotional labors and inspirational genius of the best of men are doomed to be extinguished by death, the long and lonely night of eternal oblivion and soul extinction. Nameless despair is man's only reward for living and toiling under the temporal sun of mortal existence. Each day of life slowly and surely tightens the grasp of a pitiless doom which a hostile and relentless universe of matter has decreed shall be the crowning insult to everything in human desire which is beautiful, noble, lofty, and good.
That person gave a pretty good scenario as far as the atheist goes on an individual level. We are aware, that those who disbelieve aren't concerned about their eternity in so far as that goes.
Now, the next person gives a pretty good perception of what they see in the atheists agenda, and as far as I'm concerned, is spot on...his categorized answer goes as follows:
1. For their (atheists) belief upon everyone in America.
2. To have an Atheist nation.
3. Change the Constitution and the currency and the Pledge of allegiance to not include God.
4. To impose restrictions upon pastors and places of worship.
5. To take over the Supreme Court.
Pretty good answer, and I'll help the lad out a bit and add the finishing touches to what he's already complimented with...
6. Their (atheists) ultimate goal is to manipulate and hurt people, using our democratically elected government to make it appear as if what they're doing is of "no harm".
In order to acheive number six, and one through four, they must first succeed in getting #5 - The Supreme Court.
Ok, we are all aware that the atheist movement is by no means philosophically sophisticated, nor is it profoundly intellectual, and has never been nor intended to be. Despite their fixation on "reason" and "honesty" their agenda has been a political agenda from day one.
So, all in all, as long as the Christian is aware of what is happening and is motivated to push back against it (remember Biblical lesson here: The Christians push against the gates of hell, not the other way around...the gates of hell have no power over the Christian, the battle has already been won through the shedding of Christ's blood on the Cross at Calvary) they can help win those who are still within the realms (possibility) of being saved, and thus win many battles on the forefront for American freedom at the same time.
Now, in order to have a plan to fight back against the atheists deceitful agenda, one must be informed, or equipped if you will with the truth.
Here is a quote from an atheist on the Democratic candidates...
"We don't care what they say in order to get elected in this religious country. We care about what kind of judges they give us on the Supreme Court, because only the Supreme Court determines if we'll have a secular government."So, he expanded,
"Don't look to the rhetoric they need to pander to, remember what country they're they're running in. I don't care what kind of verbal obeisance they pay to religion if that's what it takes to get a person in the White House who will guve us church-state separationists on the Supreme Court."[Chairman and lawyer for the Activist legal group: "Americans United for Separation of Church and State", Atheist, Edward Tabash]
The goal Mr. Tabash seeks in his vision, is very much in line with another one of Hollywoods famous elite - Hollywood screen writer and author,Matthew Chapman, and not to mention, a great-great grandson of Charles Darwin, of whose philosophy of "evolution" he wrote extensively on.
He had the following to say about his views in advocating for America to become a more atheistic, socialist country:
The church takes care of people...and how does atheism compete with that? I don't think it can. I don't believe atheism can succeed in a country as primitive as this one [the U.S.] now is; a country where politicians deride their own profession, sneering at the political process as if it was the problem not the solution, who deride the idea that government should help, protect, and raise up its weaker citizens; where the current government has turned over the delivery of basic needs to religion and made them a matter of charity."
So, let me get this straight, we need "les" charity? "Less" religion?
Well, you must be wondering ... wondering, because it sounds a little too much like Karl Marx's agenda, and it is with pinpoint accuracy ... Marx stated, "religion is the "opium of the people." Marx wrote, "The abolition of religion as the illusory happiness of the people, is the demand for their real happiness." Which is the core belief and agenda of the "Democratic" (Socialist) party, that has been hijacked by the atheist Marxists of the world. Many taking great strides to make their (the Communists) way here from other countries to help get Barack Obama elected President.
To see how all this connects, one must look at what the fears of the atheist are, and that would ultimately be confined to what the atheist calls "theocracy".
What does the atheist fear in "theocracy"?
In the words of Tabash ... 1)
We will lose autonomy in every area of our private lives if the Supreme Cout in a new decision nullifies government neutrality in matter of religion. We will not just lose the right of abortion for women, we will lose the right to use birth control even for married women...we would lose the morning after pill,...[and] all post-fertilization forms of birth control."
America will be plunged into scientific ignorance: citing a "shocking example of the attack on evolution," Tabash added, "Not only would they bring about oppression here at home in America, the Religious Right is in danger of being able to actually cripple our competitiveness worldwide by destroying rational moder scientific education here at home."
This includes stem cell research: "we are going to forfeit our leading role in science to those nations who do not have a religious right that hampers the development of this most important aspect of modern biotechnology."
Worst of all is the "overt effort to oppress gays and lesbians." Referring to a 6-3 Supreme Court decision that decriminalized homosexual behavior to the extent that "no state can punish what two adults do with each other in private," and lamenting that a more reent ruling reduced that dcision to 5-4, Tabash gave the awful news: "Justice Scalia very chillingly said that the people of a state should be able to use their sense of tradition to criminalize all sexual behavior they regard as deviant." (Imagine that. States actually determining their own laws without the Supreme Court forcing them! Why, it sounds almost like the Tenth Amendment.) Tabash will have none of that: "We don't want this man to have a majority on the United States Supreme Court."
5) Further, "We will lose modern sex education."
6) "End of life issues" (read: euthanasia)
7) Further, tax money to
"faith-based initiatives." Eddie expounds on this one: "It is not the businesss of the President of the United States to appropriate billions of dollars of tax money to fund charitable programs through religious institutions, when it should be secular government that provides social welfare services to the people."
So, to compact it a bit, Tabash fears his atheistic community will lose:
Abortion, post-fertilization contraceptives, embryonic stem-cell research, homosexuality, sex education, euthanasia, government socialism, and tax money. Condensing it further brings them all down to the fundamental base things - To define and arbitrate life, family, and wealth.
What does the atheist do to preserve those things they are in fear of losing? Tabash gives his advice:
"This is what we must do. We must make sure that the next president of the United States supports church-state separation." "Every single time there is a vacancy on the United States Supreme Court, we must deluge our United States senators with as many letters as we possibly can, and phone calls, to make sure that they do not pass through a religious right-winger," and, "we must vigorously oppose all United States nominees who indicate a willingness to support the confirmation of religious right-wing judges."
Troubling, indeed, that we still have those in this country, like Edward Tabash whose goal is in the spittin' image of none other than ....
And that, my fellow Americans, is precisely the future of this great country if we elect Barack Obama as our next President!
