Atheists Acknowledge God Because There REALLY IS Power In The Cross (It Sickens The Forces Of Satan)

March 8, 2014

Hold up a cross and watch a vampire shrink back in pain and fear.

Vampires are evil, parasitic leeches – just like liberals – and as the unholy spawn of the devil they cannot abide the holiness of God as demonstrated in His cross.

Turns out – and this according to atheists themselves – that the power of the cross works on them, too.  And apparently just as well.

You see, if there were any actual reality to atheism, what would the cross be?  Just two sticks held together at a perpendicular angle.  No pain there.  It’s just a simple geometric figure.  Do isosceles triangles cause you so much agony and emotional devastation?  Parallelograms?

But you see, the cross DOES mean an awful lot more than what atheists claim it does.

The cross represents the reality that God entered the world, assumed a human nature, and conquered sin and death by taking sinful man’s place and dying (as a man) and being raised from the dead (because God can’t die).

And the power of the cross makes the demons that haunt atheists’ shriveled souls start crawling and howling and causing all kinds of freaky symptoms:

Atheists Continue to Push for 9/11 Cross Ban, Claiming It Has Caused Them ‘Physical and Emotional’ Pain

American Atheists Claims 9/11 Cross Has Caused Physical, Emotional Pain

Atheist activists have a knack for picking riveting, infuriating and seemingly never-ending battles. During the Christmas season, they aim for nativities on public property and at the end of every school year, their targets set on commencement prayers.

While these battles have become all-too-familiar, there’s one showdown brewing that distinguishes itself from the rest — atheists’ demands that a cross found in the rubble following the September 11, 2001 attacks not be included in a museum that is being planned to commemorate the lives lost during the tragedy.

American Atheists (AA), a group working to advance the secular cause, has been leading the charge against the Ground Zero cross since July 2011, when the organization first filed suit against it. TheBlaze’s Meredith Jessup has explored this issue, in detail, on TheBlaze Blog, where she explained AA’s main arguments against the cross’ inclusion.

“The atheists’ suit claims that by including the cross in a museum on public property, the government is unconstitutionally endorsing a religion,” Jessup writes. “It also asserts that the mere presence of the cross would result in emotional — and possibly even physical — injuries among atheists who will feel anxious and excluded.”

Jessup isn’t exaggerating. The organization’s complaint reads, in part:

The plaintiffs, and each of them, have suffered, are suffering, and will continue to suffer damages, both physical and emotional, from the existence of the challenged cross. Named plaintiffs have suffered, inter alia, dyspepsia, symptoms of depression, headaches, anxiety, and mental pain and anguish from the knowledge that they are made to feel officially excluded from the ranks of citizens who were directly injured by the 9/11 attack and the lack of acknowledgement of the more than 1,000 non- Christian individuals who were killed at the World Trade Center.

There is nothing “unconstitutional” about that 9/11 cross no matter HOW warped your reading of the Constitution is.

Because nobody made it.  The first responders simply found it in the ruins, just like it was.  They literally found a piece of wreckage that gave them comfort and so they preserved it.

Atheists are welcome to find a symbol in the 9/11 ruins demonstrating that atheism was there on 9/11.  But oh, that’s right: atheism HAS no symbol because atheism is mindless idiocy and doesn’t stand for ANYTHING beyond hatred for reality and contempt for the God who created it.

And so atheists blame their symptoms of demon-possession on the cross when they ought to recognize that it’s just God demonstrating Himself to them according to Romans chapter One:

16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. 17 For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.”

18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

And being confronted with that reality makes them just plain psycho.

Glenn Beck’s Wife And Daughter Heckled And Assaulted By Vile Mob Of Liberal Cowards

June 30, 2011

This is what liberals being liberals looks like.  It’s ugly, because liberals are ugly people:

Glenn Beck Harrassed In Bryant Park (VIDEO, PHOTOS) Hate-Fueled Assault
by Jim Brogan

Right-wing Fox host Glenn Beck decided it was finally time that he took his daughter and wife to see a showing of Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘The 39 Steps’ at Bryant, a trip he’d wanted to do for years. He did on Monday night – but was unfortunately met by a bunch of people acting like animals.

Beck has wanted to take his daughter to Bryant Park for a very long time, and when his wife said to him, “You wanna go?” because of the whispering, pointing and texting and other behavior from the people there, he turned and said to her, “Not on your life.”

“It was a hostile situation,” Beck recounted of the trip. The host’s WIFE – yes, his wife, had a bottle of alcohol “accidentally” kicked on to her back, leaving her and the blanket “completely wet.” The crowd behind them laughed about it.

It unfortunately didn’t get any better as the night went on. His wife and daughter were getting up to go to the bathroom when a man pointed his fingers and yelled, “We hate conservatives here!” His daughter had tears in her eyes when she and her mother returned to their blanket.

Another woman stood up behind the family, pointed her finger at them and said, “We’re in New York, and we HATE Republicans!”

Beck and his family were treated like garbage by ignorant, rude liberals at the movie showing. He said Tuesday, “If I had suggested — and I almost did — wow, does anybody have a rope? Because there’s a tree here. You could just lynch me. And I think there would’ve been a couple in the crowd that would’ve!”

But the host somehow maintained his sympathy for others at the showing: “I apologize to anybody who had their movie experience wrecked because of the people that found it so necessary to spew hatred,” Beck said, “but there’s nothing I can do about it.”

Beck was also bothered by the fact that no one jumped to his defense at the park. He said he was “…a little surprised that nobody — nobody — in the crowd said ‘knock it off. Just, stop. Just be cool. I don’t agree with the guy, but just be cool.’ ”

The host said his experience was so horrible, he wouldn’t wish it on his worst enemies: “All through the evening, I wanted to say to you today, please, please, please don’t ever treat anybody like that. If Van Jones comes and sits right next to you, please don’t treat anybody like that.”

Video below. Where’s the outrage?

By the way, this isn’t uncommon at all.  It’s not dissimilar to the way that Andrew Breitbart was treated when he showed up in the public common area at a Netroots Nation convention.  He was immediately accosted, surrounded and heckled and treated like dirt by people who actually called themselves “journalists.”

Garden variety liberals are much more classless vermin, of course.  Here’s video of an elderly woman who was assaulted for bringing a cross to a “No on Prop 8” event in Palm Springs.  Liberals came unglued, because they are godless, wicked people and coming unglued is what they do best.

I have met a fair number of “celebrities” in my life.  As someone who lives in the Palm Springs area, it’s not all that unusual – especially if one is involved at all in the community.  If I genuinely admired a celebrity, I offered my congratulations to him or to her; if I didn’t, I have left them alone and ignored them.

I don’t understand how liberals can think that Nazis have a right to march through a town largely populated by Jewish death camp survivors, but conservatives don’t have a right to anything.  It’s just an exhibit of what vile, vile hypocrites liberals are.  Liberals would probably sneer and say something stupid like, “That’s because conservatives are worse than Nazis,” but what it really proves is that liberals are tolerant of Nazi fascists, but utterly intolerant of anyone with whom they disagree.

I would NEVER have treated a liberal celebrity like this.  And as despicable as these people acted, it was even MORE despicable for these cockroach liberals to treat Glenn Beck’s family this way.

I love Ann Coulter’s take on this vile example of the fact that liberals are genuinely vile people:

Glenn Beck Vs. The Mob
by  Ann Coulter
06/29/2011

Of all the details surrounding the liberal mob attack on Glenn Beck and  his family in New York’s Bryant Park last Monday night, one element  stands out. “No, it won’t be like that, Dad,” his daughter said when  Beck questioned the wisdom of attending a free, outdoor movie showing in  a New York park.

People who have never been set upon by a mob of liberals have  absolutely no idea what it’s like to be a publicly recognizable  conservative. Even your friends will constantly be telling you: “Oh, it  will be fine. Don’t worry. Nothing will happen. This place isn’t like  that.”

Liberals are not like most Americans. They are the biggest  pussies on Earth, city-bred weaklings who didn’t play a sport and have  never been in a fight in their entire lives. Their mothers made excuses  for them when they threw tantrums and spent way too much time praising  them during toilet training.

I could draw a mug shot of every one of Beck’s tormentors, and I wasn’t there.

Beck and his family would have been fine at an outdoor rap  concert. They would have been fine at a sporting event. They would have  been fine at any paid event, mostly because people who work for the  government and live in rent-controlled apartments would be too cheap to  attend.

Only a sad leftist with a crappy job could be so brimming with  self-righteousness to harangue a complete stranger in public.

A liberal’s idea of being a bad-ass is to say vicious things to  a conservative public figure who can’t afford to strike back. Getting  in a stranger’s face and hurling insults at him, knowing full well he  has too much at risk to deck you, is like baiting a bear chained to a  wall.

They are not only exploiting our lawsuit-mad culture, they are exploiting other people’s manners. I know I’ll be safe because this person has better manners than I do.

These brave-hearts know exactly what they can get away with.  They assault a conservative only when it’s a sucker-punch, they  outnumber him, or he can’t fight back for reasons of law or decorum.

Liberals don’t get that when you’re outnumbering the enemy 100-1, you’re not brave.

But they’re not even embarrassed. To the contrary, being part of the majority makes liberals feel great! Honey, wasn’t I amazing? I stood in a crowd of liberals and called that conservative a c**t. Wasn’t I awesome?

This is a liberal’s idea of raw physical courage.

When someone does fight back, liberals transform from aggressor  to victim in an instant, collapsing on the ground and screaming bloody  murder. I’ve seen it happen in a nearly empty auditorium when there was  quite obviously no other human within 5 feet of the gutless  invertebrate.

People incapable of conforming to the demands of civilized  society are frightening precisely because you never know what else such  individuals are capable of. Sometimes — a lot more often than you’ve  heard about — liberals do engage in physical violence against  conservatives … and then bravely run away.

That’s why not one person stepped up to aid Beck and his family  as they were being catcalled and having wine dumped on them at a nice  outdoor gathering.

No one ever steps in. Never, not once, not ever. (Except at the  University of Arizona, where college Republicans chased my assailant  and broke his collarbone, God bless them.)

Most people are shocked into paralysis at the sight of  sociopathic liberal behavior. The only ones who aren’t are the  conservative’s bodyguards — and they can’t do anything without risking a  lawsuit or an arrest.

My hero Tim Profitt is now facing charges for stopping a  physical assault on Senate candidate Rand Paul by a crazed woman  disguised in a wig.

But the disturbed liberal whose assault Profitt stopped faces  no charges — she instigated the entire confrontation and then instantly  claimed victim status. In a better America, the cop would say, “Well,  you provoked him.”

Kentucky prosecutors must be very proud of how they so  dutifully hew to the letter of the law (except in the case of Paul’s  assailant).

Maybe they wouldn’t be such good little rules-followers if they  ever, just once, had to face the liberal mob themselves. But if Beck’s  own daughter can’t imagine the liberal mob, I suppose prosecutors can’t  be expected to, either.

Michael Moore and James Carville can stroll anywhere in America  without risking the sort of behavior the Beck family experienced. But  all recognizable conservatives are eternally trapped in David Dinkins’  New York: Simply by virtue of leaving their homes, they assume a 20  percent chance of being assaulted.

Bullying is on the rise everywhere in America — and not just  because Obama decided to address it. It’s because no one hits back. The  message in our entire culture over the last two decades has been: DON’T  FIGHT!

There were a lot fewer public confrontations when bullies got their faces smashed.

Maybe it’s time for Beck to pony up some of those millions of  dollars he’s earned and hire people to rough up the liberal mob, or, at a  minimum, to provide a legal defense to those like Profitt who do.

These liberal pukes have never taken a punch in their lives. A  sock to the yap would be an eye-opening experience, and I believe it  would do wonders.

They need to have their behavior corrected. It’s a shame this  job wasn’t done by their parents. It won’t be done by the police.

As long as liberals can’t be normal and prosecutors can’t be  reasonable, how about a one-punch rule against anyone bothering a  stranger in public? Then we’ll see how brave these lactose-intolerant  mama’s boys are.

Believe me, liberal mobbings will stop very quickly after the first toilet-training champion takes his inaugural punch.

One day liberals will get their comeuppance.  God created hell for Satan and his demons and their legion of demonic bureaucrats that are also known as “Democrats.”  And it is that belief that there IS a divine justice – and that vengeance is God’s – that separates conservatives from liberals.

8-Year-Old Suspended, Given Psychiatric Counseling, For Seeing Christ In Christmas

December 15, 2009

Christians have the Spanish Inquisition to apologize for.  Secular humanists have Marxism, Maoism, and Nazism (few people today realize that “Nazi” stood for “National Socialist German Workers Party”) to apologize for.

The Inquisition – which Christians recognize was a terrible wrong – led to the execution of approximately 5,000 people over its 300 year history.  It stands as an ugly reminder of what can happen if “Christians” allow political and temporal power to dominate their thinking to the exclusion of the teachings of Jesus.

Communism alone resulted in the murders of more than 100 million human beings at the hands of their own officially atheist governments during peacetime.  But a) it is rare indeed to find the political left apologizing for the despicable sins of leftist ideologies; b) pure political and temporal power are at the very core of their ideology; and c) there is nothing even remotely close to the teachings of Jesus to guide them or tell them when they have gone too far in their all too often fanatic pursuit of pure political and temporal power.

History ignored, of course, is doomed to be repeated.

One of the favorite methods of dealing with dissent in the Soviet Union and the socialist system generally was to use the power of psychiatry to demonize dissenters.  You weren’t just incorrect in your thinking.  You were crazy.  And the “fact” that you were “crazy” was used as a propaganda tool as a means to advance the statist agenda.

In the Soviet Union, psychiatry was used for punitive purposes. Psychiatric hospitals were often used by the authorities as prisons in order to isolate political prisoners from the rest of society, discredit their ideas, and break them physically and mentally; as such they were considered a form of torture.

Christians in the Medieval period feared demons and the evil influence of Satan.  And fanatic and cynical temporal leaders alike harnessed that fear into a tool of repression.  Their secular humanist counterparts have no such fears, of course.  They have only power, and the determination to crush any who oppose them.  And so rather than see demons in their opponents, they see madness.

If you don’t think that leftists still embrace the power of psychiatry as a means to advance their own political agenda, please think again.

I write the above because of a frightening thing that emerged today.

Child’s Christmas artwork deemed ‘violent’
M.L.

Taunton (AP/WBZ Newsroom) — An 8-year-old boy was sent home from school and ordered to undergo a psychological evaluation after he was asked to make a Christmas drawing and came up with what appeared to be a stick figure of Jesus on a cross, the child’s father said Tuesday.

Chester Johnson told WBZ-TV that his son made the drawing on Dec. 2 after his second-grade teacher asked children to sketch something that reminded them of the holiday.

Johnson said the teacher became upset when his son said he drew himself on the cross. Johnson, who is black, told WBZ he suspects racism is involved. He said he thinks the school overreacted and wants an apology.

Johnson told the Taunton Daily Gazette, which first reported the story on Tuesday, that his son gets specialized reading and speech instruction and has never been violent in school.

An educational consultant working with the Johnson family said the teacher was also alarmed when the boy drew Xs for Jesus’ eyes.

A call to Johnson was not immediately returned.

The boy was cleared to return to school on Dec. 7 after the evaluation found nothing to indicate that he posed a threat to himself or others. But his father said the boy was traumatized by the incident and the school district has approved the family’s request to have the child transferred to another school.

“They owe my family an apology and the kid an apology and they need to work with my son (to) the best of their ability to get him back to where he was before all this happened,” Johnson told New England Cable News.

The father said in the days before the incident the family had gone to the National Shrine of Our Lady of La Salette in Attleboro, where there are crucifixion statues.

“That was fresh on his mind,” he told NECN. “And that was a good thing that he saw.”

Superintendent Julie Hackett said she could not discuss an individual student and did not address the drawing specifically or the teacher’s reaction to it, but did say the school has safety protocols in place that were followed.

Hackett did not return multiple calls from The Associated Press on Tuesday.

In June 2008, a Taunton fifth-grade student was suspended for a day for a stick figure drawing that appeared to depict him shooting his teacher and a classmate.

Let me just assure you that none of the teachers, principles, and “experts” who were so alarmed that a child would draw Jesus on the cross with “Xs” for eyes to show that Jesus had died were anything even close to “Christian” in their worldview.

We live in an time in which the government pays for an “artist” to drop a crucifix into a har of urine and label the creation “Piss Christ.”  And now that same taxpayer-funded NEA is blatantly part of the left’s political agenda as a propaganda tool.  But a public school child who draws a picture of Jesus on the Cross in response to sketch something that reminded him of Christmas is suspended and forced to undergo psychiatric evaluation.

When it is the adults who SENT that poor, innocent child to the psychiatrist who desperately need psychiatric help.

A few days ago I read an article in the LA Times on the need to protect the free speech rights of children who use internet technology to bully and humiliate fellow students.  And the ACLU is at the forefront of such legal action.  Nobody on the left even thinks that children who publish pictures of their naked co-students has mental issue.  And yet nobody is protecting the rights of a child TO DRAW A PICTURE OF JESUS AT CHRISTMAS.

Coca Cola, Typical Pluralistic (Except for Christianity) Company

August 20, 2008

Bob McCarty came across this:

The crescent moon and star — yes, the same symbol featured on the flags of so many Muslim countries — is an internationally-recognized symbol of the Islamic faith in much the same way as the cross represents Christianity and the star of David Judaism. When I learned the symbol of the Islamic faith will appear on Coca-Cola packaging during Ramadan 2008, I found myself wondering whether or not the Atlanta-based soft drink maker will soon include the Christian cross and Jewish star of David in future holiday packaging designs targeting people of those faiths.

Here’s what the new cans look like:

Coca Cola – ever the profit-seeking enterprise – puts cute polar bears on their cans to “celebrate” Christmas. Jews don’t even receive the token snub that Christians get for their Hannukah.

In the name of pluralism and multiculturalism we are downright hostile to our own religious traditions even as we eagerly celebrate others.

Coca Cola and companies that now shun “Merry Christmas” greetings in favor of the neutral “Happy Holidays” pursued this reverse discrimination tactic only after years of lawsuits and judicial-activist government rulings.

World Net daily had an article titled “‘Five pillars of Islam’ taught in public school” that begins:

Another school has been “teaching” Islam by having students study and learn Muslim prayers and dress as Muslims, and a lawyer who argued a previous dispute over this issue to the U.S. Supreme Court said such methodologies wouldn’t “last 10 seconds” if it were Christianity being taught.

Educational Issues has an article titled, “Muslim Prayer in Public Schools: Are Public Schools Accommodating Islam Over Christianity?” And the answer is clearly, “YES.”

The ACLU, so vigilant of any “intrusion” of Christianity into public life, make it a point to look the other way when Islam is thrust upon us even when public funding is used to do the thrusting.

It is frankly amazing how liberals and secular humanists are so unrelentingly hostile toward Christianity in the name of “multiculturalism” and “separation of church and state” even as they embrace religions such as Islam in the name of the very same things!

As government creates a “gulag-like” mentality about expressing Christianity in public, corporations like Coca Cola follow the trend and go where the most money – and the least controversy – is.

And we continue to surrender everything that made this nation – and the Christian religious tradition that both formed and informed it – great.
