Evangelist: God Says Christians Are “Supposed to be Ruling in This World”

Filed under: Atheism, Bigotry, Harm, News, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 10:15

It’s not enough for some conservative Christians to have all the political power that they do. Some of them won’t rest until they have all of it, religious minorities be damned.

Conservatives Andrew Wommack and Lance Wallnau were recently joined on a webcast by Christian pseudo-historian David Barton to talk about the upcoming midterm elections. Barton made the argument that God wants Christians like them to control everything. Wommack agreed, saying very bluntly, “we are supposed to be ruling in this world.”

When Muslims say things like that, conservatives sound the alarms over Sharia Law taking over our nation. When Barton and Wommack say it, it elicits little more than a shrug. Sure they have plenty of power, but they won’t rest until the entire country is run under their very specific interpretation of a very vague holy book.

They demand a theocracy of their beliefs only.   They want the right to discriminate / get rid of those who do not support their views.   Please read the page at the link below.  Hugs

As they are trying to do in the US on gay rights, women’s rights, science, sexual rights, gender rights, labor rights, unions, and anything not accepted by illiterate desert dwellers 2000 years ago. Hugs

This is why I am antitheist. These people want to change our democracy into a christian theocracy like the Islamic countries have. Christianity rules with enforced religious laws. Please this is important, go to the linked article and read it. Thanks. Hugs

“Project Blitz” Is the Christian Nationalist Plan to Merge God and Government

http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/2018/05/28/project-blitz-is-the-christian-nationalist-plan-to-merge-god-and-government/

Specifically, there are three kinds of bills these Christians hope to jam through the states: Symbolic ones (like putting “In God We Trust” everywhere), pro-Christian ones (like passing “Christian Heritage Week” resolutions), and anti-everybody-else ones (like bills that allow Christian business owners to discriminate against gay customers).

We’ve already seen the passage of several bills that fall into these categories, whether or not they were connected to the actual project. But if church/state separation advocates aren’t vigilant, many more will follow.

Stewart argues that this dominion approach to politics, in which certain Christians seek to impose their biblical beliefs on all aspects of our lives, is effective even if most Americans would oppose it:

It’s frightening stuff. And it only works because most sensible Americans aren’t paying attention to these issues in their states. If no one sounds the alarm, the fire flourishes unimpeded.

They are everywhere, they walk among us

So on my way home after getting my stitches out of my mouth ( for the second time ) I stopped at the grocery store down the street from our home for a few items.  We shop there often and are recognized by the people working there.   I had passed the manager a few times and joked with him.  We both happened to be at the egg display case at the same time and I found a case of eggs with a few broken ones.   I gave the case to the manager.   I then checked another one and it also had broken ones, and I gave these to the manager also.  He was trying to take the broken ones out and get a full unbroken case and at that point a young store worker I had not seen before stopped by us.   I told the manager that three weeks ago I had checked a case of eggs, turned to put them into the cart, and hit the handle.  At that point the eggs flew out of my hands and flipped three times in the air, landing in the cart right side up.   Not a single egg got broken.  When I finished the young teen / adult boy spoke up and told me and the manager ” That was god Sir”, he blurted out.  “It was God, it had to be, only God could have kept them from breaking”.  Then as I just stared at him and the manager was also less than pleased he continued again with his lesson to us about the egg saving grace of his God, “God is with us, he is with you Sir, God is all around us and …”.   Noticing the manager was now giving him a very icy stare the young man began walking away.  As he departed I could hear him finish his joyful telling me about how God was with me.   The Manger turned to me and I shrugged while mentioning I had not known God was so good at designing styrofoam egg cases.    He laughed and I went on my way.  I wonder if that boy will be getting a talking to about telling people about his god while at work.  I felt bad for the boy really.  He honestly felt a deity had intervened to save the eggs I was buying but the boy never thought about the  kids his God lets starve and be raped.  The look on the boys face as he was telling us about his god was so happy.  I wonder, what happens when the light comes on , when that boy’s god fails him?  It seems cruel to me to teach young people to have that faith over reason.   Even though I live in the southern USA in a state known for its churches and religious fanatics, I was still stunned to see this.   What has education become in our country, this young man was praising his God and telling me he protected my possible eggs purchase but the boy was not thinking of the human engineers who worked on the packaging nor the many far more important things his God should have been doing and did not do.   Any thoughts?  Hugs

Use your free will, walk away from religion and live this life, not the pretend next one you won’t have

GOD GAVE US FREE WILL

Christians and Muslims believe our God-given free will is crucially important.

It is so important that many parents beat religion into their kids from an early age–so they don’t use their free will to decide their parents’ religion is embarrassing garbage.
