CHAPTER 36 ATHEISTS: ANTI-LIFE TO THE CORE
American Life League

We atheists today must admit that for corpses Old Yahweh and his sidekick JC Superstar are taking a long time to stop twitching and grow old.

                                                           American Atheist member G. Richard Bozarth.[1]

Anti-Life Philosophy.

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try.
No hell below us,
Above us only sky.
Imagine all the people
Living for today.

                                                                                      John Lennon, "Imagine."

Atheism has absolutely nothing to do with abortion or any other social issue. We loosely organized atheists don't become involved in politics, and we mind ou/r own business. We are not judgmental, interfering busybodies like typical 'Christians.'

Introduction.

When you see that [Christian] fish symbol on the bumper sticker of the car in front of you, know that that is the enemy.

Goal: The 'Individualization' of Religion.

The American Atheists (formerly the Society of Separationists) is a highly-organized entity headed by Madalyn Murray O'Hair. As atheists, they subscribe to the Humanist Manifestos in their entirety (excerpts from these documents are contained in Chapter 2 of Volume I, "The Anti-Life Mentality").

Their ultimate goal is the total destruction of religion in this country, both organized and personal. To the atheists, "freedom of religion" is a hollow joke. Nothing more than total enforced "freedom from religion" for everyone on a nationwide scale will be satisfactory.

The organized atheists claim that they are merely defending the principle of separation of church and state. However, by their actions, we know that their actual goal is the complete separation of religion and society.

Naturally, what the atheists, the American Civil Liberties Union, People for the American Way, and others really desire is the 'individualization' of religion, where people may hold personal religious viewpoints and stay at home or in their churches and pray, but are strictly prohibited, both legally and societally, from joining with others in attempts to base public policy on these viewpoints. In the names of freedom and tolerance, Godless and atheistic policies achieve automatic preference at all levels.

As a practical matter, this goal has been achieved; very few Christians venture forth from their comfortable churches into the streets to face evil directly. This is why evil holds sway in our land today.

The Failure of Atheism.

Strangely, atheists seem entirely incapable of learning lessons from past history. Despite the fact that their most distinguished 'thinkers' admit to the utter failure of atheism as a cause and as a movement, they seem driven to implement the destruction not only of themselves, but of society in general.

For example, historian Will Durant wrote in the February 1977 issue of The Humanist that "There is no significant example in history, before our time, of a society successfully maintaining moral life without the aid of religion."

St. Augustine could tell him why: "There is a God-shaped vacuum in the heart of every person, and the heart will be forever restless until it finds solace in Him."

The Atheist-Abortion Connection.

Religion has become an outdated mode, an outdated answer to some of our problems ... Religion is the only reason women don't have control over their bodies.

                                                                           "L.A. Law" star Corbin Bernsen.[3]

The Abortionist's Role.

The source of the atheists' aggressively destructive attitude towards Christians is neatly summarized in a letter to American Atheists by abortionist Bill Baird.

Baird's letter to the American Atheists is dated Summer 1986 and is printed on paper with a letterhead that says (I am not making this up), "from the desk of BILL BAIRD, father of the abortion movement." It reads, in part;

We are in the midst of a "holy war" ... Many of these "Army of God," Ayatollah Khomeini-like clones are firebombing clinics ... Our freedom is under full-scale attack. We are in grave danger of losing our hard-earned rights. Freedom is neither free nor a spectator event! If you believe in fighting for freedom and dignity, we ask you to consider writing letters, picketing, voting, donating money, and inviting Bill Baird to speak in your area.

Sincerely, Bill Baird.

The attached three-page American Atheists letter, which was sent to its entire national membership, is a masterpiece of hysteria and fully exposes the true strategy and goals of the atheists. Their own letter reveals them to be anything but the harmless group of sweet-natured eccentrics that the public perceives them to be, and is filled with lies and hate;

The combined forces of the Religious Right [Evangelical Protestants and Roman Catholics] have already made significant inroads in seriously limiting the types of abortions that can be performed ... In every incident [of violence] thus far solved, Christian fundamentalists have been involved, including several Roman Catholic priests ... these same fanatic religionists ... U.S. Supreme Court Justice Harry Blackmun has received numerous death threats and has had his home vandalized by "the Army of God.

Prior to 1973, untold thousands of women died or were maimed for life ... Today abortion is ten times safer than childbearing ... it is easy to see why abortion must remain a legal "safety net" for women for whom contraception has failed or who have become pregnant against their will ... There are several noteworthy organizations that are diligently working to protect reproductive rights, notably the National Abortion Rights Action League and Planned Parenthood. But none of these groups are able or equipped, due to the broad-based support they receive, to do battle with the real enemy religion! American Atheists is. In Houston, Texas, we are now providing patient escorts on a regular basis to family planning clinics ... If you support quality of life; if you feel that living, feeling human beings should receive precedence over potentialities; and if you place a premium on freedom from religion, now is the time to act ... Only American Atheists is willing to face the enemy head on ... Religion does not allow people to make their own choices. Religion is about control. Once people are allowed to think for themselves, religion will be deprived of its power and will soon fall to the trash heap of history ...

Sincerely, AMERICAN ATHEISTS

Incidentally, it was the same Bill Baird who said "My goal is to see the end of religion in this country" on a June 1988 Morton Downey Show. Baird, on CBS's "Nightline," also demanded that Catholic bishops be declared "agents of a foreign power" so that their private papers and finances could be thrown open to public inspection.[4]

Needless to say, Baird became livid when the host suggested that perhaps his own private records and affairs should be exposed for the sake of consistency.

Extending to Euthanasia.

The atheists believe that since there is no afterlife, anyone facing pain at the end of this life should be allowed to kill himself (or be killed by anyone else), in the interests of a "death with dignity."

After Hemlock Society member Dr. Jack Kevorkian helped fellow member Janet Adkins kill herself in 1990, he said that "Religious dogma has become part of the marrow of humanity. We can't get rid of it. There should be absolutely no connection between medicine and religion, but there is, and it's paralyzing ... Religion has fouled up medicine for centuries."[5]

Kevorkian is right, of course; religion has "fouled up" his brand of 'medicine' ever since medicine has been practiced the kind of 'medicine' where 'doctors' kill preborn babies, let newborns starve to death, and commit murder and assisted suicide.

The Humanist Manifesto.

The American Atheists and other groups subscribe to the Humanist Manifesto, which includes blanket acceptance of abortion, infanticide, euthanasia, and the elimination of any life that they deem not worth living. It reads, in part; "In the area of sexuality, we believe that intolerant attitudes, often cultivated by orthodox religion and puritanical cultures, unduly repress sexual conduct. The right to birth control, abortion, and divorce should be recognized ... To enhance freedom and dignity, the individual must experience a full range of civil liberties in all societies. It includes a recognition of an individual's right to die with dignity, euthanasia, and the right to suicide."

Atheist Anti-Religious Activism.

The whole religious complexion of the modern world is due to the absence from Jerusalem of a lunatic asylum.

Havelock Ellis, atheist and friend of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger.[6]

American Anti-Theists.

Make no mistake, the American Atheists and other atheist groups like the American Humanist Association and American Gay Atheists are fanatically opposed to religion for anyone. They are extremely aggressive in their campaigning and activism. They are not merely 'atheistic,' as they say, but anti-theistic.

Their Activism.

American Atheists buys large quantities of anti-life books, including Abortion Freedom and The Right to Lifers and sells them for fundraisers, keeping nearly half of the total selling price to "advance the Atheist cause."

American Atheists was directly responsible for the elimination of all Bible reading and prayer from public schools.

American Atheists has even tried several times to have the words "Under God" removed from the Pledge of Allegiance! Ricky Sherman, a six-year old first-grader from Cook County Public School in Illinois, recently filed suit in District Court for this purpose. His father, atheist leader Robert Sherman, said that his son "... thinks it's just bizarre that the religious fanatics back in the 1950s added the words "under God" to the Pledge, because he [Ricky] knows God is make-believe."[7]

This shows that the atheists are even willing to use their own children as tools to further their causes.

However, this tactic sometimes backfires. Madalyn Murray O'Hair used her son as a tool in the same manner. He is now an outspoken evangelical Christian activist, much to mama's acute chagrin!

Solid Proof.

These examples of atheist action should prove beyond the shadow of a doubt that the goal of American Atheists is not just to be left alone. It is no less than the total eradication of religion in the United States.

If the above examples are not convincing, try infiltrating an atheist rally. Their favorite signs and T-shirts proclaim "BLASPHEMY IS A VICTIMLESS CRIME," "CHRISTIANS ARE ASSWIPES," "MARY SHOULD HAVE HAD AN ABORTION," and other hideous messages.

Remember that these are the same people who insist that they are "nonjudgmental!"

No FCC Ban Intended.

It should be noted that the American Atheists has not petitioned the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to ban all religious radio broadcasting. This is a particularly persistent rumor that the FCC has been trying to stamp out for more than a decade. This is not to say, of course, that American Atheists wouldn't love to see such broadcasting banned in practice!

Generic Atheist Attacks on Christianity.

It's always the same with these papist bastards. They want to take over the f_cking country. Do these pricks think they can run my life?

                                                    Policeman commenting on an abortion clinic picket.[8]

Introduction.

Atheists are the most tolerant and nonjudgmental people in the world.

Just ask them.

A person who believes the propaganda dished up in The American Atheist will have painted in his mind a world where all Christians are slavering, finger-pointing, screaming freaks and all noble Atheists are tolerant, logical freethinkers who love freedom and rational discourse.

But not all activist atheists are members of American Atheists. Many of the attacks on Christianity that are described in the following paragraphs are conducted by freelancers. After all, the atheist must rationalize his own turning away from God, and the best way to do this is to attack the very Person that he is drawn towards.

Generic Atheist Lies.

Like the homosexuals, the atheists use ridicule and satire as their most potent weapons. Their targets, of course, are Roman Catholics and Fundamentalists. And nobody ridicules quite as viciously as the members of American Atheists.

Since they don't have the courage to attack Muslims, Jews, and Hindus, their primary target is the Christian Church. Since atheists generally lack imagination and intelligence, they contribute little or nothing to the national debate. It requires no knowledge or wisdom to make fun of another group or a person, which is the easiest thing in the world to do. And so, the atheists do not attempt to dispute current Church teachings; they instead rely upon a torrent of ridicule and distortions to establish their 'positions' on various issues.

For example, Arthur Ide's book, Unzipped: The Popes Bare All describes Catholic Popes generally as "sodomites, necrophiliacs, pedophiles, rapists, drunkards, murderers, homosexuals, pimps," and a lot of other rather uncomplimentary labels. The atheists boast that this book is based almost entirely on "original historical documents" and so it is. But, predictably, every one of the alleged "historical documents" turn out to be outright fabrications or other atheist tracts, which themselves are totally devoid of footnotes.

The Bible = Pornography.

Since their only real opposition comes from church-based groups, atheists relentlessly attack morality and the Church. The standards set forth in the Bible are anathema to them, and so they have performed a breathtaking moral inversion by labeling the Bible as "pornographic."

When Sol Gordon, veteran Planned Parenthood masturbation pusher, received the "coveted" Raymond E. Bragg Award for Scholarly Contribution and Personal Commitment to Humanism in 1985, he said that "The Bible is one of the most masochistic, pornographic things we have ... If I was to talk about the real threat to women [other than pornography], I would talk about some of the influences in the Bible ... Those are some of the much more serious threats than pornography."[9]

At the same awards ceremony and panel, Gina Allen, former director of the American Humanist Association, said that;

I always steal a Bible out of a hotel. It makes the Gideons very happy. You know, they look and they have to replace a Bible and they say, 'We've got another convert.' Actually, I take them out of hotels because I wouldn't want a child to get hold of this pornographic book. Pornography is a symptom of a sick society a society based on this book. Stories in the Bible are forerunners of the famous Hustler cover that shows a woman being put through a meat grinder. This is what we learn from this book that tells us how to rape, how to stone women and children, how to burn women as witches, and so on ... The Lord God invented women as a gadget a useful gadget for men's pleasure and use. You take this gadget and you screw it on the bed and it does the housework.[9]

I have a very special feminist dream. That dream is that this model feminist ordinance should pass all over the nation. And that every woman who had ever been raped and every woman who has ever been battered and every girl-child who has ever been molested will sue under this ordinance the Gideons who distribute this pornographic book, everybody who publishes it, and everybody who preaches from it.[10]

Not only is Allen a dismal Scripture scholar, but her profound lack of self-esteem and loathing of her own gender shows vividly when she describes herself and all other women as "gadgets."

And it is particularly frightening to realize that this leading atheist, if she had her way, would see to it that anyone who dared even preach from the Bible would be hounded to extinction!

Remember that the atheists pride themselves on their 'commitment to free speech' but only free speech they approve of, naturally!

Atheists on Public Prayer.

The atheists operate on a very strange double-standard when addressing the issue of public prayer. When Christians complain about pornography in plain view on convenience-store shelves and on television, the atheists simply say something along the lines of "If you don't like it, don't look. After all, it's protected freedom of expression."

However, when professional sports teams pray before and after games and the public sees the praying, suddenly the atheists forget their own advice and snivel loudly that their rights are being trampled.

For example, Sports Illustrated columnist Rick Reilly complained about a "wave" of prayer during and after pro football games in the February 1991 issue of the magazine. He said, "Sure, athletes are entitled to freedom of religion, but let them exercise it on their own time." He complained that millions of people were being coerced into watching prayer "whether they like it or not," and that "Imposing one's private beliefs on an audience is wrong."[11]

He went on to say that the National Football League should ban prayer and fine violators, and, if this did not work, television should simply censor all prayer scenes.

This is another example of the atheist rule that Christians should only be allowed to pray in private, where nobody can see them.

Gee, Ricky, if you don't like to see prayer, maybe you should just turn your eyes away!

And so, we have arrived at the point in our country where a flood of public hard-core pornography is considered fine by atheists but seeing people pray in public is coercive and harmful.

Isn't the Neoliberal brand of 'plurality' something else?

Atheistic Pornographers.

It should come as no surprise that pornographers are not only atheistic, but anti-theistic as well. These people use their formidable brand of media to exploit and abuse women, and also direct a steady stream of bigoted anti-Christian propaganda at the sick minds that read their garbage in the first place.

In its August 1987 Australian edition, Penthouse Magazine suggested that "ordinary people like you and me" commonly have sex with animals and that "Maybe it's time the Old Testament was banned not only from the bedroom but from the barnyard as well."[12] The following month, the magazine published a "how-to" guide on statutory rape entitled "How To Feel Sweet Sixteen Again." This 'Guide' suggested that pedophiles get jobs at all-girls' schools, and described how to lure underage girls to motel rooms and destroy their inhibitions with alcohol.[12]

The April 1987 Penthouse featured a cartoon of the Last Supper. A huge cake is centered on the table, and a nude woman and three armed Roman soldiers are emerging from it. Jesus has a big smile on His face and His arm is around Judas. He says "Damn, Judas! You really know how to betray a guy!"[13]

The pornographers constantly depict Santa Claus, an indirect Christian symbol, as a cannibal, child molester, child killer, and as having sex with animals. A January 1979 Playboy magazine cartoon shows him having sexual intercourse with one of his reindeer. A December 1977 Penthouse cartoon shows a snarling Santa, holding a smoking automatic rifle in his hands, standing over a dead child saturated with blood. Santa is saying, "That'll teach you to be a good boy."

As always, the pornographers mock the religious right and associated groups and individuals. Actual or stereotyped clergymen and members of the Moral Majority are depicted in bed with or molesting little girls and boys. The most famous recent example of such slander is Hustler Magazine's cartoon of Jerry Falwell having sex with his own mother in an outhouse.

The freedom to publish this slanderous cartoon was upheld by the United States Supreme Court.

And Atheistic 'Artists.'

It should also be no surprise that the so-called "arts community" is heavily dominated by atheists who use our tax dollars to attack Christianity.

Perhaps the most loathsome attack of all on Christianity was committed by Andres Sorrano, a little-known "artist," who simply filled a vat with his own urine and submerged a photograph of a Crucifix in it. He imaginatively entitled this masterpiece "Piss Christ." For this magnificent effort, he received a $15,000 award from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA).

Urine tax dollars at work!

His "work" was selected for the Awards in the Visual Arts program of the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art of Winston-Salem, North Carolina for display and tour.[14] This program, perhaps not coincidentally, is funded by The Rockefeller Foundation, which also heavily funds worldwide population control. This is an excellent example of how the population control cartel undermines the authority of those organizations (in this case, the Christian Church) who oppose their worldwide program of genocide.

Sorrano's other "works" include "Piss God" and "Piss Pope." When asked what he would "work" with next, Sorrano replied "semen." It turned out that he was as good as his word.

Once again, political correctness reigns. Sorrano would never dream of creating a "Piss Martin Luther King" or a "Piss Molly Yard."

The National Endowment for the Arts had previously awarded Sorrano another $15,000 of our tax money in 1985 for "creating artworks composed from human body parts and decapitated heads of animals exhibited in glass vats."[15]

In 1990, the NEA struck again. It granted $20,000 to the group Artpark, which in turn gave Survival Research Laboratories (SRL) money to conduct a Lewiston, New York show entitled the "Bible Burn."

SRL distributed posters to art galleries all over the country, boasting that "SRL will create large, sexually explicit props covered with a generous layer of requisitioned [stolen] Bibles. After employing these props in a wide variety of unholy rituals, SRL machines will proceed to burn them to ashes. Bibles can always be obtained for free from hotels, churches, and your parents' house."[16]

Strangely, there were no cries of protest from People for the American Way or other humanistic, self-appointed censorship watchdogs who habitually refer to Christians as "book burners" and "censors."

Anyone who is not convinced of the anti-religious nature of 'contemporary' art should visit any public gallery and take a look for himself. Not only is the 'art' heavily iconoclastic and anti-Christian, but ninety percent of it is garage-sale class garbage that any untalented member of the public could easily duplicate.

Finally: Atheistic Schools.

Virtually every one of the more than one dozen Neoliberal 'anti-censorship' groups, like People for the American Way, beat their drums loudly whenever concerned parents try to exercise their rights regarding their children in the public school system. These parents are outraged and upset about value-free sex education, secret abortions and birth control counseling, and occult practices taught in some books. Therefore, they demand some say in the public school system. What could be more reasonable?

Naturally, PAW and its friends never mention the most blatant censorship of all: The total exclusion of the Bible from public schools even for use in literature and comparative religion classes.

The atheists/humanists have baldly acknowledged the role of the public schools in perpetuating their social agenda, as described in Chapter 12 of Volume I. If they are to properly inculcate their values in our children, no dissenting voice can be tolerated. The Bible is the ultimate in a 'dissenting voice.'

To implement this program of censorship and control, the atheists will go to absurd lengths. Recently, a Boulder, Colorado teacher was reprimanded for using the word "Christmas" in a party invitation. She was told that the acceptable term was "winter holiday."

And, in Lake Worth, Florida, a principal ordered his staff to cut a picture of the decades-old Bible Club out of all the school yearbooks with razor blades before he would permit it to be released to students.[17]

Conclusions.

It has never been more obvious that those who fall away from Biblical morality dive directly into a cesspool of perversions that would make any animal vomit. Incredibly, some pornographers and people who have sex with underage children and animals call themselves "good Christians." This mindset is the ultimate example of how thoroughly some people can deceive themselves.

But Christians have only themselves to blame. In the face of the attack by the Adversary, we have fallen back on nothing more than good manners and have let the atheists and anti-lifers run all over us.

Our entrenched status as real second-class citizens in this country is the inevitable result.

Atheists Paragons of Violence.

Propagandistic Connection.

Activist atheists frequently claim that religious people can't think for themselves and are essentially brain-dead, as voiced in their popular bumpersticker "FUNDAMENTALISM IS MIND DEATH."

They also use examples of wars based partly upon clashes between religious beliefs (i.e., Iran-Iraq) to "prove" that all or most wars have religious motivations behind them. Additionally, they often describe the Inquisition in order to 'show' how violent the Christian Church is. Sometimes, the atheists claim that as many as 50 million were killed by the Inquisition half the population of Europe! This is a blatant lie, of course. Even the most virulently anti-Catholic writers have set an upper limit of 30,000 deaths caused by the Inquisition during its entire 350-year duration. A more likely figure is 4,000 deaths.

The atheists also fail to point out that the role of the Church was to bring charges against people it was the secular government that tried and executed them.

The points that the atheists are trying to make is that they are peace-loving, rational "freethinkers" who are in no way involved in bloodshed, and that there must be an impenetrable 'iron curtain' of separation between church and state.

Atheist Genocide.

Are the atheists the cuddly, peace-loving little dolls they claim to be? Let us just look at a few examples of the massive genocide committed by atheists in the last century alone.

Avowed atheist Josef Stalin killed more than thirty million of his own countrymen during his reign of terror. In early 1932, his soldiers sealed off the borders of the Ukraine and insured that no Ukrainians could get out and that no food or supplies could get in. By the time two bitter winters had passed, at least five million Ukrainians had perished. Robert Conquest referred to the entire region as 'one vast Bergen-Belsen,' and Montreal film-maker Yuri Luhovy produced a 57-minute film about the massacre entitled Harvest of Despair.[18]

Avowed atheist Pol Pot laid waste to the entire nation of Cambodia and killed more than a million and a half persons in a campaign of unparalleled viciousness.

Avowed atheist Mao Zedong killed as many as eight million of his countrymen.

Avowed atheist Adolph Hitler was responsible for a war that killed fifty million people. Atheist propagandists like to argue that Hitler was Roman Catholic, which is a ridiculous lie. If he was Catholic, why did his concentration camps exterminate more than 12,000 Catholic priests, including recently canonized Father Maximilian Kolbe?

Additionally, Hitler was guided in part by the thought of avowed atheist Friedrich Nietzsche, a homosexual syphilitic who wrote in his book The Antichrist that "Woman is by nature a snake."

To summarize, atheists are directly responsible for the extermination of more than 200 million innocent people in this century alone. By contrast, all wars of even a remotely religious nature have killed a maximum of 15 million people in this century. This is still 15 million too many; but the point to be made here is that atheist charges of Christian violence are extremely hypocritical.

In A World Without Religion or Hope.

Among religions in this country which do not teach what would generally be considered a belief in the existence of God are Buddhism, Taoism, Ethical Culture, Secular Humanism, and others.

Overview.

Many activist Christians motivate themselves by trying to imagine how they would be treated in an atheist-dominated world. In reality, modern Christians don't have to speculate they can look to the Communist countries for examples. After all, Communism is nothing more than atheism that has gained control.

One such example is described below, and illustrates the cowardly and skulking manner in which the Communists operate. Other examples are provided in Chapter 96 of Volume III, "Life Under Communism."

Holyn's Martyrdom.

In the Western Ukrainian village of Holyn, close to the Polish border, the authorities told the people that they could finally open their church as long as they footed the cost. The enthusiastic villagers went to work and finished their beautiful church in 1977. But the atheists, liars as always, then announced their intention to seize the church and convert it into an "atheist museum."

The villagers would not be bullied by these rank cowards. The atheist Soviets, showing the true colors of 'tolerant' atheists everywhere, had bulldozed more than 150 Ukrainian churches in 1977 alone. So the villagers stood guard for more than ten years, day and night, to prevent atheist thugs from destroying the church. The atheist gangs attempted more than a hundred times to gain access to the church by beating up and tear-gassing the guards, who did not yield. Finally, the atheists poisoned the water that the village men drank, and several of them died.

This is typical of the cowardice and lies of the atheists. They 'preach' tolerance continuously, but if they get into power, they will ruthlessly destroy churches and kill Christians who dare to oppose them. The atheists want not only 'freedom from religion,' they desire most desperately the total absence of religion.

Wolgemuth & Hyatt Publishers, Inc., Post Office Box 1941, Brentwood, Tennessee 37027. 1989, 200 pages. This scholarly book shows how atheists have rewritten history to show only the best side of atheism and the worst side of Christianity.

485 pages.

Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen called this book "as complete a study of atheism as exists in any language." The author shows that, while we have been spending trillions of dollars defending against the Communist onslaught from the outside, our country has been eaten away by the atheist cancer on the inside. God is even outlawed in our schools. Father Miceli shows why Communism must be atheistic and why it is the ultimate spiritual evil; why Christian parents must firmly inculcate their children with Christian beliefs; and how atheism is the great temptation of the educated and/or intelligent.

Westminster, Maryland: Christian Classics, 1989. The author traces the history of demon worship and shows how Satan hides behind many attractive guises in order to accomplish his goals.
