Darwinism and popular culture: Materialist atheists are the poster kids for neglect and abuse?
Have a look at this story, going the rounds, and act with reasonable caution on its claims:
This grief about atheists being disliked or feared is the first stage in a program, very active just now in the United States, from which we, here in Canada, are now emerging into the light.
But some nations may still be descending further into the abyss. I name no names. You know who you are.
You an American? Why does this matter to you? Please listen: The US government has just put in “hate crime” legislation, explicitly enabling people who kvetch about hate.
That is why atheists need to portray themselves as victims of wrongdoing, even if no wrongdoing ever really occurred. Or else, it didn't really matter. Studies like this help the atheists build a “victim” case. It would certainly help them protect Darwinism.
Can't think of anything else that would protect Darwinism right now, actually.
Why do I say Canada is emerging from this? Traditional free Canadians of all stripes finally won a round when we got a government pooh-bah to acknowledge that outrages against citizens actually contravene our Constitution.
Wow! An outrage perpetrated by the government against a citizen contravenes our Constitution? So ... we have a Constitution? Well yes, we do, ... but it actually turns out to be higher class paper than the stuff we relegate to the john.
I had almost forgotten. I helped draft our Constitution in 1981. But no one minds that kind of thing any more. Unless ... could there now be hope?
Can I now stop shouting abuse and hanging up the phone when some idiot from a political party calls, soliciting my vote, despite the continuing shameless abuse of civil rights, currently supported by all Canadian political parties? They just want to milk us for a good lifestyle for themselves. But we can't afford it any more. Many people's lives have been ruined by the amazing rulings of social engineers empowered via the "human rights" system.
Our recent well-publicized Canadian “hate crime” complainers often happen to be Islamic fascists as well as atheists, but the difference doesn’t matter much.
Islamic fascists and atheists totally agree on one really important thing: You do not have freedom of thought, conscience, and belief. Canada was vulnerable because we have great principles but we do not have a "First Amendment" (= "Congress shall make no law") so any number of local social workers were totally delighted to police the lives of their fellow citizens. Powering down the social workers has been exceedingly difficult.
The Canadian public never really adapted. Hence the growing revolt across the country, as these social engineers spread ever more widely into anything from who should serve at the altar at a Catholic church to whether a surgeon must be forced to operate, against his own judgement regarding his skills.
What either Islamic fascists or atheists believe is just boilerplate, because they agree on the one most important thing: Freedom of thought, conscience, and belief are an illusion. Government should run your life and tell you what to believe, for your own good.
Oh wait. Lights are going on all across northern North America.
Hey, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Everywhere I go.
