Today: Atheists and Christmas, Christian persecution in Iraq
According to an acquaintance of mine, it was actually Christians who started the practice of abbreviating Christmas with the cross-like X, but that’s not the main point. While atheists are busy denying the foundation for what many of them still consider to be “good,” recent history provides us with numerous examples of what happens when we take God out of a society or replace Him with a false god.
‘Tis the season for the atheist/humanist crowd to make fools of themselves. As millions of Americans celebrate Christmas, the American Humanist Association is in the midst of their annual membership drive punctuated by smart-aleck billboards and city bus placards that mock the existence of moral authority and belittle faith in Christ.
Every time I read about this I question what we did there. I’ve been an adamant supporter of our action in Iraq since the beginning, but what have we left in place of Hussein? Is it really better?
They saw their brethren murdered during Mass and then were bombed in their homes as they mourned. Al-Qaida vowed to hunt them down. Now the Christian community of Iraq, almost as old as the religion itself, is sensing a clear message: It is time to leave.
