Zuckerberg, Hate Speech, and Congress


by Cowboy Bob Sorensen


Mr. Markie Goes to Congress

As you probably know, Facebook is having some difficulties. Because of the data scandals, their stock is plummeting, and people are quitting it — including Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. Do some searching for "reasons to quit Facebook", and you'll see that warnings are not only sounding now, but have been for years.

He offered his standard apology, but people are not expecting much. It didn't mean much before, after all.

via GIPHY

Mark Zuckerberg had himself a little discussion with the US House and Senate. It's not just about selling information, but about discrimination, censorship, and hate speech. Fazebook has a reputation for allowing terrorist speech (here is one report), then they get on the prod and slap down non-leftists (here is an example, his campaign was "shocking and offensive"). Two black women (I know they're two black women, they keep telling us this) who go by the name of Diamond and Silk, had their Page taken down. There was a great deal of publicity, and it is back up now. Just a coincidence? No, I don't think so.

Zuckerberg said that hate speech is "linguistically nuanced". Sounds like a four-bit term, but it actually has no meaning. My take on it is that this term is like "hate speech", vague and to be manipulated for someone's convenience. In Facebook's case, censoring Christians, Israelis, and non-leftists.

Interesting that Bookface is selling information, but is not all that concerned with fake names. I've reported obviously false information, such as some jasper that had a profile icon and name that sounded like he was out of the killer robot from outer space franchise. Others were equally outrageous, even deliberately offensive to Christians and creationists. Same old story:
Thanks for your report - you did the right thing by letting us know about this. We looked over the profile you reported, and though it doesn't go against one of our specific Community Standards, we understand that the profile or something they shared may still be offensive to you. We want to help you avoid things you don't want to see on Facebook.
And so on. I have also reported hardcore sex video clips, hate speech, and more. Bookface allows stuff that decent people abhor, but hypocritically bridles or bans decent people. Facebook is run by leftists, which is well known.

You know that raid on Trump's lawyer (violating attorney-client privilege)? Maybe they could have saved time by asking Markie.


I Have a Fake Name...

...and my real one (which you won't find). There is a very long story, but I'll have to tell some of it. In the midst of using the service, I was suddenly shut down. (No prior disciplinary actions against me, either, so it's not like I made one too many bad moves.) I had to prove I was old enough! What brought this on, I had no idea at the time. After showing my ID, I was still shut down. Why? They can't tell me "for security reasons". After testing with other names and where I used them (such as commenting in a certain atheopath group), I reluctantly agreed with the assessment of others: one or more angry atheists who is in power (or has friends in power) on Fazebook wanted me silenced. That's what they do when they cannot deal with logic. However, I kept The Question Evolution Project going. Atoms-to-atheopath evolution is foundational to atheism, you know.


Slapped Down for Alleged Hate Speech

On Sunday, January 21, 2018, I was logged out of Facebook by the Powers That Be. Seems that something posted at The Question Evolution Project was deemed "hate speech", and removed. It was a repost of an article called "Stopped in Time: Another Atheist Killing Spree". Let's take a gander at the notice:


Used according to  federal copyright law, Fair Use doctrine, for educational purposes (click for full size)
Let's see now... checking their rules, was it about...
  • Race? No.
  • Ethnicity? Not unless "atheist" is an ethnicity, so, no.
  • Sexual orientation? No.
  • Gender? No.
  • Disability? Aside from mental and spiritual disabilities, no.
  • Religious affiliation? Waitaminnit.
Your typical village atheist claims that atheism is a "lack of belief" in God, spirits, and the like, and not a religion, but that's all we have left. So, Fazebook is declaring atheism as a religion! Actually, despite the denials of adherents, atheism most definitely is a religion. But Bookface is unlikely to know that.

The atheopath who reported my "hate speech" later bragged about it, and blamed me that his own anti-Christian, anti-creationist Page was removed. I don't have that power, and he has done quite a few things to upset many people. 


Facebook's Future Relevance

When I responded to their replies of, "Nuh uh, nothing wrong with that obviously fake name or with the blatant anti-Christian obscenities you reported", I told them that they are not too big to fail. Facebook could become as relevant tomorrow as MySpace is today. People are leaving Fazebook for alternatives, or even nothing at all. 

I have no idea how many warnings from people and even the law that Zuckerberg and his ilk are going to ignore. If they change their ways, there is a chance to salvage Facebook. But I think the damage has been done, and they are spiraling downward.

Below is a video by Chris Plante, syndicated talk show host out of WMAL. He's my favorite commentator. This was edited for the main parts. (If you want the fun and information from the original three-hour show, complete with news and commercials, click here.) I respect Chris. I do not respect Zuckerberg or Facebook a whole lot.

The Increase of Christian Persecution

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

Disclaimer: I do not endorse all opinions on all sites found in supporting links.

This article is another of those times when several things came together for me that had been in the works for a while. I think God does that, just brings things together like that.

The Arabic letter that begins their word for Nazarine has become a social media event. Moslems are using it to mark the homes of Christians in Iraq (if there are any left there now), which is reminiscent of the way Nazis marked property belong to Jews. People are using this symbol and variations on it in social media to express solidarity 1. However, this is not anything new or unusual. Persecution of Christians is happening worldwide, especially in atheist and Moslem countries. There are ministries dedicated to spreading information and giving support to the persecuted Christians 2, 3, 4, 5.

Some of the threat to Christians is the increased Islamization in the West, but the more current threats are from militant atheists and secularists.

Currently, blatant physical persecution of Christians in Western countries is rare. It is primarily done as discrimination, hidden behind other excuses (such as poor job performance, or daring to publish information that questions evolution in peer-reviewed material 6). I have documented many instances in this Weblog of atheistic discrimination and persecution. (Some dishonest atheists claim that Christians are not being persecuted, and that they are instead! Ironically, William Murray, the son of famous misotheist Madalyn Murray O'Hair, leads the Religious Freedom Coalition 7.) Although what we endure in Western countries is much milder than our brothers and sisters in Christ are facing in other parts of the world, be certain that it is coming our way 8, 9, 10, 11.

As I mentioned before, there is not much "I'm persecuting you because you're a Christian". Instead, there are excuses and false charges used as excuses to harass, imprison, torture and murder Christians. A good part of this is done by labeling. Sometimes it is with "criminal" charges, some labels are as vague as "enemy of the state" or "child abuser" (Clinton Richard Dawkins likes to equivocate and call Christians who teach their values to their children "child abusers", for example 12). One reason I believe that many atheists hate Christians who teach creation is that we want to encourage people to think critically and examine the evidence instead of simply believing what "scientists say". This also slows atheists down when they want to defame us by appealing to people's emotions with illegitimate, loaded-term labels. Persecution and discrimination begin with words.

Take a look at this 3-1/2 minute video:




"More and more people are having a hatred for Christians . . . People behave in a manner consistent with what they believe. If they believe that Christianity's okay . . . they're going to behave very much differently than someone who believes Christianity is a hate-mongering, filthy religion that needs to be destroyed. People with different belief systems are going to behave in different manners based on the belief system that they have. We behave in a manner consistent with what we believe, not with what we don't believe. I have seen an increase in hostility towards Christianity from all types of groups..."
— Matt Slick, "Matt Slick Live", CARM.org, June 2, 2014
Now I am going to give an example of some of the nonsense that I frequently deal with (which is about 1/100 of what major creation ministries constantly endure). This character is inconsequential and cannot harm me (and I dislike indulging his craving for attention), but his libel illustrates what Paul Washer and Matt Slick are saying 13.

Later, another liar stated, "bob just said you want to kill all creationists" [sic]
Remember, persecution and discrimination begin with words. Words express thoughts and attitudes. People appeal to emotion 14, get others on "their side" and things escalate from there. It has happened before in history, and it is happening again. We need to stand firm and remember what God has told us in his written Word (Matt. 5.10-12, Matt. 24.9, John 15.20, Acts 8.1, 1 Cor. 15.9, 2 Cor. 4.8-12, 2 Tim. 3.12, 1 Peter 2.19-20, Psalm 14.1, Prov. 1.7).

Dan Barker's Fundamentally Flawed Rationale


Dan Barker of the Freedom from Religion Foundation seems like a heckuva nice guy. Unlike so many of the obstreperous atheists on the Web, he is intelligent, respectful and polite. But I am only basing this on a couple of interviews on Christian radio shows that I heard. Still, he does not have a reputation for being nasty.

The first one I heard was with Matt Slick of CARM. An attempt to schedule a debate had fallen through, so Dan was a guest in the studio with Matt. There was no specific agenda or topic. To listen to that, click here, but do not click on the "listen now" button. Instead, use the link "Carm_Podcast_2-7" to get the MP3. Also, Matt had a show where he discussed a debate he had with Barker a few years earlier, that show is here.

When hearing this show, I had feelings similar to those that Matt expressed, how so much was touched upon and a week of one-hour shows could stem from it. Barker had numerous instances of bad reasoning, word games, philosophical excuses and bad theology, so several visits would have been quite interesting.

After this, Dan Barker was on "Stand Up for the Truth" prior to a debate with Dr. Jerry Bergman of the Genesis Foundation. This was more formal, and they discussed not only his justifications for atheism, but how the Freedom from Religion Foundation conducts itself. You can listen/download here. Barker was caught in some glaring inconsistencies. Mike LeMay pointed out some of those in an article. One thing that I don't think anyone caught was how he claimed to be for everyone's religious freedom, but when Obamacare violates religious freedom, there's not a peep from FFRF. Double standard much? But the SUFT team does not let Christians off the hook because bad theology and lack of commitment (and understanding) on the part of Christian teachers that helps give us people like Dar Barker.

Somewhat related is the next interview on "Stand Up for the Truth", where Dr. Bergman is interviewed about the religion of secular humanism, Barker and other related topics. You can listen/download the Dr. Bergman discussion here.

Facebook Futility — Observations and Suggestions


"I know he has been subjected to utterly ridiculous bans and deletions on that obviously biased social interaction site. If Facebook keeps up the liberal censorship and arbitrary punishment of conservatives and creationists, it could lose the market share. It is only a matter of time before another site would step up to take their place. Remember, it didn't take long for FB to make Myspace obsolete."
Radar, in reference to this writer
I have two aspects that I want to discuss here. First, overall Internet safety guidelines and Facebook. Second, Facebook's blatant discrimination and bullying against political Conservatives, conservative Christians, and biblical creationists.

Facebook has changed over the years. Along with other social media, they grab the rights to use your photos. But the rules change frequently, so that could be outdated and modified already. One problem is that Facebook requires people to use their real names and information. The reason that is a problem is that it is a privacy concern, and haven of identity thieves.

An article on safety for young people makes sense for everyone. More than that, Facebook is not your friend. They want too much information. Do not give it to them. Although the powers at Facebook don't like it, people use fake names (many obviously fake, even obscene) on Facebook all the time, and have multiple accounts. For some, the only possible reason for them to exist is to be offensive.

Seems like a good idea to me.

The drawbacks are that your friends cannot find you unless you tell them ahead of time. "Yes, my name is John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt. Look for me under Jim Smith, here's the e-mail address that I used when I signed up, search for that..." Another drawback is if Facebook catches on and says, "We think this is a fake account. Verify your name".

Then you activate your auxiliary account. Which can be a hassle if you have 500 "friends" and need to make contact all over again, convincing them that yes, it's really you under this other name. Hopefully, you used the link under "Account Settings" and backed up your information so you can keep your photos, friends list and so on.

Ironically, this was posted on Facebook. Parody of both Facebook and the old Microsoft slogan, "What do you want to do today?"
 You have to weigh the advantages and disadvantages for yourself.

No matter what, I strongly recommend that you "lock down" your settings to at least "friends only". This includes your friends list. I don't think anybody needs to know who your friends are. Even other "friends". Some people will "friend up" almost anybody, and I think that's not such a good idea. You can get spies or pretenders.



Play it safe, people! Identity theft, fake friends, stalkers and so on. Think about it.

And now, the discrimination of Facebook.



More than a few of us are becoming increasingly exasperated with the increasing bigotry, discrimination and hypocrisy of Facebook. It is without legitimate cause. As Radar said in the quote at the top of the page, this can backfire and Facebook can lose market share.

One Admin on "The Question Evolution Project", under his own name, quoted an atheist and said something to the effect of, "Nice bit of prejudicial conjecture". The poor persecuted victim complained, and the Admin was given a 12-hour ban on posting, even though his comment violated none of their "standards". The next day, in an unrelated incident, another Admin was given the same penalty for disputing with an atheopath and showing the errors of his logic. We agree that if we foul up and deserve punishment, we'll "man up" and take it. But not this injustice.

This caused me to call for a no-nonsense ban policy: Instead of trying to show where the logic failed, or the lack of civility, or whatever, people are most likely going to be banned outright. We do not need to have all of the Admins put in the "time out" corner because Facebook took the side of a diaper-filler (it's happened to other Pages I could name).  Besides, what we're about and our rules are in the "About" section. We had this reply:


This kind of nonsense happens to individuals as well as Pages.

Of course, if atheist-run Facebook wasn't so blatantly discriminatory and hypocritical, such things would not be needed. Naturally, the secularists will say, "No, it's not true", even though Christophobes and leftists are getting away with filthy content, and some names are too shameful to even write down. Edit: Hatetheists attacked me for this post, ignoring the pertinent material and instead ridiculing things that were never said. These are the kinds of people to keep out of your stuff.

I believe that quite a few people are going to jump ship when a new social media service comes along with decent features, is consistent in applying its rules and won't steal your stuff.

Education, Discrimination, Indoctrination

“I know that some of you out there are creationists.
You really don’t believe in evolution.
I personally don’t think you should be allowed
to leave this university with that belief.”
— Lesley Northrup


Some atheists go into denial when I mention that there are college professors that are openly derisive of the beliefs of their students, and actively work to destroy Christian beliefs, and others justify the practice since it fits their own bigotry. It should not be surprising to have this happen in America. After all, we have unrepentant terrorists like William Ayers getting tenure. Active discrimination against creationists exists. True scientific inquiry does not protect the established orthodoxy, but will examine scientific evidence that runs against it. The same goes for education. Let's face it, we do not have education, we have indoctrination centers. And anyone would be hard-pressed to find a legitimate educational reason for attacking the personal beliefs of students.
A university dean in Florida, who moonlights as an Episcopal priest and is an admitted lesbian, recently caused controversy after a video surfaced on the web that provided snippets of a lecture she delivered to students in her Epistemology class, in which she discusses religion and evolution.
“This is a book of myth, and that’s going to offend some of you,” stated professor Lesley Northup in the video. “And I don’t really care.”
You can read more about this Stalinette in "University Dean Tells Class: ‘Bible is Myth,’ Creationists Shouldn’t Graduate".

American Christian Persecution - Again

So far, 2012 has been a bad year for atheists and evolutionists. But you wouldn't know it, the way atheopaths are attacking anything Christian and trying to destroy it. (It's been tried for centuries, so we're not going away until we're all called home.) But loud misotheists and evolutionists still resort to childish stalking, tantrums, persecution and all sorts of other nonsense. With the assistance of political correctness and leftist activist judges, they have managed to make the public at large detest them even more.

But it is not always bleak.

Christians have preached in decadent New Orleans for quite a long time. But the police there tried to put a stop to their exercise of free speech and freedom of religion. The ordinance was blocked by a federal judge (there are a few with some sense), pending the outcome of a hearing.

The atheo-fascist activist "Freedom from Religion Foundation" wants to strip away the rights of students in the Kountze Independent School District. The students put up banners at game time. The students did it. But no, that's not permitted. The Liberty Institute took up the challenge, and won a restraining order. It may change, but it's a start. Using children in their anti-God hate agenda is beneath contempt.
The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they have committed abominable deeds; There is no one who does good.
(Psalm 14:1, NASB)

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction
(Proverbs 1:7, ESV)

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known of God is revealed in them, for God revealed it to them. For the invisible things of him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even his everlasting power and divinity; that they may be without excuse. Because, knowing God, they didn’t glorify him as God, neither gave thanks, but became vain in their reasoning, and their senseless heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools...
(Romans 1:18-22, WEB)

Astonishing Atheist Arrogance and Hypocrisy

Thank God that atheism and evolutionism are dying off! Unfortunately, the moldering corpse of atheism is still walking around, preaching the false gospel of evolutionism and making a general nuisance of itself.

After that appetizing introduction, I am pleased to announce that part of this article is about food. Sorta.

Atheists can't seem to understand why most people do not like or trust them. Would obnoxiousness have anything to do with it? I think so. It seems to make sense that if you choose to offend large segments of the population (usually through misrepresentation), it would reinforce public opinion that they are cafones. Of course, the typical rebuttal of atheists when someone tells the truth about them is a petty, "You're a bad man so everything you say is a lie and therefore there is no God" nonsense. Small minds attack people instead of dealing with concepts. Hate and persecution take many forms.

But wait, there's more! Food, remember?

Because a coach followed long-standing tradition of allowing the public school football team to get fed by area churches (who do the expected Christian thing to not only give food, but share the gospel message), an atheist group plays the dishonest card of, "The Constitution is being violated! Separation of church and state! Waaaaaah!" And yet, despite their pretense for wanting to enforce the law for equal treatment for everyone, they were nowhere to be found when B. Hussein Obama makes rules that violate the religion of millions of American Catholics. Flaming hypocrisy. How good is that?


In another food-related item, Prudhomme's Lost Cajun Kitchen offered a discount on Sundays to patrons who brought in their church bulletins. An atheist who has never even been there filed a complaint about it. Now the world knows about John Wolff, who made the complaint simply because he hates religious people.

Ironically, this has backfired. As the the Gaystapo's attacks on Chick-Fil-A gave them increased business, Lost Cajun has had an increase in business! Bully for you against the bullies.

Hey, I think that's part of my problem with the mentality of this kind of atheist — I can't stand bullies. Anyway, check the link early in this article and find out about atheism going down the drain.

Atheism is Not Conducive to Liberty

"God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are of the Gift of God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever; That a revolution of the wheel of fortune, a change of situation, is among possible events; that it may become probable by Supernatural influence! The Almighty has no attribute which can take side with us in that event."
— Thomas Jefferson


Why do atheists and their bed partners like the ACLU seek to destroy anything "religious" in public life? It is usually under the guise of "separation of church and state", a horrible misrepresentation of liberty. When Jessica Alquist sued a Rhode Island school because it had a prayer banner that had been standing for fifty years, something the townspeople loved, misotheists hailed her as a hero and gave her a $40,000 USD "scholarship" [1]. And they really wonder why they are the least-liked group?
So where are these guardians of freedom when the state, under marching orders from Obama zombies, directly infringe on the Catholic Church [2]?


They claim that they want liberty and equality for all, but their conspicuous absence in this blatant attack on religious freedom illustrates their hypocrisy. And they really wonder why they are the least-trusted group [3, 4, 5]? Add to this their obnoxious attacks on Christians, and it should not be a mystery to any rational person.


Thought this was ready to go, but I have a new development. A certain obscure, misotheistic, anti-creationist Page on Facebook is called "Exposing Dishonesty in Creationists". Yet again, someone is using an appeal to emotion to manipulate, and is unwilling to see that disagreement on the interpretation of facts is part of the spirit of scientific inquiry. To accuse someone of lying is outrageous. Perhaps this guy is unaware of what lying entails [6]?


Further, he compiled a "List of People to Investigate". A bit Stalinesque, Comrade? The Thought Police in action, making sure that the world is safe for evolution, a foundation of the religion of atheism?



No, atheism is not conducive to liberty. Quite the opposite, in fact. Instead, liberty comes from God.

Will Discrimination Against Christians Increase in the USA?

Although some people deny the facts, the truth is, there is discrimination and persecution of Christians around the world. In some places, especially those run by atheist and Mohammedan regimes, it is severe. But even in the west, where civilization was built on Judeo-Christian principles, persecution is increasing. Will the European level of discrimination happen here? It very well could. We see it happening with anti-Christian organizations, the loud, detested minority, getting weasel activist judges to go against the wishes of the majority. Political correctness and "tolerance" are attempts at stifling free speech, after all.
The news that the government of Great Britain is mounting a full-scale assault on Christians is not really surprising.  The left-wing in England, like their counterparts on the European continent, have long discriminated against Christians, while at the same time, in myriad ways, protected those of Muslim faith.  For much of his 3 years in office, Barack Obama and his administration have been mirroring Europe’s blatant discrimination against Christians.

The latest example of the rabid discrimination by Prime Minister David Cameron’s government in Great Britain against Christians came from a news report from the United Kingdom’s national newspaper, “The Daily Mail”.  According to the newspaper, the UK’s Equalities Minister Lynne Featherstone, a Liberal Democrat, has instructed government’s lawyers to stop Christian workers from wearing the cross.  The Cameron government will call on Europe’s “human rights” judges to dismiss the claims of Christian workers Nadia Eweida and Shirley Chaplin that they have a right to wear a cross to work as a symbol of their faith in Jesus Christ.

Atheism and Human Rights

It should come as no surprise that the individuals who abide by fundamentalist Christian and radical Islamic doctrines would be the first to cry out that they are being persecuted when their dangerous, damaging and disingenuous beliefs come under attack. Most of these people lack the maturity and intelligence to act in a socially acceptable manner. Many of them are sociopaths and quite a good number of them are psychopaths. All of them are clearly delusional.
— Al Stefanelli

Buon giorno. You would think that I would stop being amazed at the illogical, childish, vituperative attacks that militant atheists have against Christians. (To me, this indicates that they have the inner knowledge that we are right, Romans 1.19-22 ESV, and that burns.) They get exceptionally angry when their words and actions speak for themselves, showing the world the lack of character of many atheopaths. Not only do they detest having the truth told, but have conniption fits when the truth about them is demonstrated in their own words, capice? And sometimes, they delete posts, comments, articles and so forth. Embarrassed, Elliot?

The following article is about the militant American atheists. I think the obstreperous nature and basic wickedness of such misotheists transcends geographic boundaries; there are jerks in every country. (Personally, I suspect that those outside of the American borders are more obnoxious.) Unfortunately, the author of the article shows some ignorance of current science trends (especially the claim that "the Big Bang has been confirmed", which not only creationists dispute, but other evolutionists are in disagreement as well). The article the author cites from an atheist site was deleted, but he saved a copy on his own site. If you bother to read the atheist article, note not only the pure hatred, but the utter lack of logic. Astonishing.
I do want to make a distinction between ordinary individual atheists and militant atheists. This post is about militant atheists, the kind that organizes into groups and then exerts political power to try to trample the rights of religious people. This post is about that kind of atheist, not the ordinary kind that is honest and open to being convinced that God exists. If you are an atheist, and you don’t have any thoughts about silencing religious people, or making religious people deny their convictions, or taking away their rights to speak freely or assemble, then this post isn’t about you. But there is another group of atheists that does have these and other goals, and this post is an answer to them.
You can read the rest of "American Atheists: are they much different from Stalin and Mao Tse Tung?", here. Ciao!

Anti-Christian Bigotry News

Amazing. America was founded on Christian values (don't let the revisionist liars fool you). But some who want to follow in Stalin's footsteps and make this country an entirely secular nation ignore that fact. No, it appears that they want to remove the rights of Christians, or at least, force us to keep our beliefs to ourselves.

Why don't those contemptible clowns realize that the United States Supreme Court has references to the Ten Commandments all over their building? Listen up, Poindexter, the so-called "separation of church and state" is not only something that is not found in the Constitution, you and your disbeliever friends have never had anything to fear from the Judeo-Christian ethic being expressed in public. I still think back to what Brad Stine says: Atheists are irrational. What is more irrational, someone praying to a God that he cannot see, or someone being "offended" by a God he doesn't even believe exists?

But I digress. Let's move on to the bigotry festival, shall we?
In its most recent crusade against posting the Ten Commandments in schools, the American Civil Liberties Union is arguing that their display is unconstitutional if people who actually believe in the biblical laws advocate it. [1]
Yep, the Anti-Christian Liberties Union is that outrageous. But it gets even more interesting! The judge suggests cutting them down to six commandments! [2] How stupid is that?

Let the discrimination parade (and hypocrisy) continue! Neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson is supposed to give a commencement address at Emory University and receive his honorary doctorate. Not so fast, Freddie! Since Dr. Carson does not believe in evolution, students and faculty are protesting because his values do not line up with theirs [3, 4, 5]. Ironically, the university motto is Proverbs 18.15, and the school was founded by Methodists [6] (back when that denomination actually stood for something). How stupid is that?

However, there is one bright spot in all this. Christian campus groups at Vanderbilt university have been denied status because the university has an "all-comers" policy. A Christian group cannot require Christians to be in leadership positions! [7] How stupid is that? The bright spot is that members of Congress as well as lawmakers are getting involved to try to get them to reverse this policy that violates religious freedom [8]. How good is that?

Here is a real dandy. On the May 3, 2012 radio program of Matt Slick of CARM, he had guest atheist in the studio. They were protesting the National Day of Prayer, pretending that it "violated the separation of church and state". This guy was a real jerk, to be blunt. There were two things that I saw that were useful in this conversation. First, it shows how atheism leads to brain damage [8, 9]. Second, it's a splendid  example of the "steamroller" tactic where obnoxious loudmouths fire off several things, constantly interrupt and basically act like idiots. I've endured this kind of obnoxious atheist experience many times, especially on the Internet. (The last time I heard an atheist act like this on Matt's show, he had a West Midlands accent and bounced around like a ball-bearing in a blender like this American, then claimed victory over Matt. Agonizing.) This guy would change the subject when he was losing a point, fired off excuses as to why he hated God and proudly displayed his ignorance not only of the Bible, but of reason itself. And the arbitrary assertions...oh, boy.

You can hear this example of foolishness on this MP3, skip to the twelve minute mark for the interesting but irritating stuff. Atheist should be embarrassed that there are people like this representing "reason".

Hatred of Christians, discrimination, and yes, persecution, are increasing all the time. At least I can show you their folly and appallingly bad behavior.

Gaystapo Sues Ohio School

The parade of the loud minority forcing others to accept their agenda continues. During a "Moment of Silence", a student wearing a pro-homosexual shirt was told that it was not appropriate, and to turn it inside out. A year later, school officials discover that they are being sued. You see, that's the way to get your agenda through: Ignore the will of the majority, then go to the lamestream media and leftist activist judges to help impose your will on the rest of the people. It works for homosexual activists, militant atheists, Obama zombies and others. The America of the Constitution is deteriorating. Rapidly.
An Ohio student's mother is suing his high school over administrators asking him to remove a T-shirt that read "Jesus is Not a Homophobe" during a "Day of Silence" observance.

The mother of Maverick Couch, 16, filed the suit against the Wayne Local Schools in United States District Court in Cincinnati. Couch is being represented by Lambda Legal, a nonprofit law firm that focuses on LGBT issues.

Wayne Local School District Superintendent Patrick Dubbs has decided to fight the suit in Court. In comments to media, he has questioned the true controversy of the matter.

The Latest International Persecution of Christians

Buon giorno. There are some atheist clowns who display their hatred and ignorance by saying that Christians do not have to deal with persecution. Well, I have shown several times on this Weblog that Christians have to deal with discrimination and persecution. Although it is not as bad in the Western world (yet... we all know what happens when atheists gain power), it still exists, capice? Between atheists and Mohammedans, if we did not have God on our side, we would not stand a chance.

Four Protestants in Turkmenistan were arrested and fined in late February after police discovered Bibles in their possession. Although the judge initially refused to hear the case against the four Christians, citing a lack of evidence, she later changed her position and fined them for “violation of the law on religious organizations.”

The Bibles were discovered when police searched a home where three believers were staying with a fourth Christian. During the search, a police officer found a Bible in each of the three visitors’ bags. He confiscated the Bibles and took all four Christians, who asked not to be identified, to the police station.

Amid its ongoing bombing campaign in the Nuba Mountains area, the government of Sudan has enacted a new ethnic cleansing strategy denying citizenship to anyone deemed a “southerner.” The determination is based purely on ethnicity, rather than any of the traditional criteria for citizenship, such as residency or property rights. Khartoum has set April 8 as the deadline for “southerners” to leave or establish alien residency, though no residency terms have yet been established.

In the southern self-determination referendum, Sudan’s president warned over a year ago that he would purge the North of non-Arab and non-Islamic elements. He told the British newspaper The Guardian, “If south Sudan secedes, we will change the constitution, and at that time there will be no time to speak of diversity of culture and ethnicity. … Sharia and Islam will be the main source for the constitution, Islam the official religion and Arabic the official language.”

Eleven orphans in Laos who were threatened with expulsion from a government school because of their Christian faith have continued to attend church. They slip away one by one on Sunday mornings and walk to church unnoticed.

In August, the boys’ headmaster called them into his office and told them to stop attending church. Initially, seven of the boys stopped attending, but four of the boys refused to obey the headmaster despite the possibility that they could be expelled from the government-sponsored school. After seeing the faithfulness of these four boys, the other seven eventually decided to continue going to church as well.

Religious Speech IS Still Allowed

Buon giorno. Secularists are intent on banishing freedom of religion (and I suspect that freedom of religious thought is threatened). Some even think that "religion" should not be allowed in the workplace and attempt to secularize it, reminiscent of Stalin's efforts to secularize the Soviet Union. No, prohibiting religious speech is a federal crime (unless, of course, it is actually interfering with the workplace). In previous posts, I showed how the rights of Christian students is eroding, and organized efforts by atheists to persecute Christians. Not only with the truth go on, but we still have free speech in the USA. Capice?
A Christian-based legal defense alliance wants to make sure everyone understands that schools in the U.S. may talk about Easter in the historical sense of what is written in the Bible about the time of Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection – not just about chocolate Easter bunnies.

The Alliance Defense Fund published a memorandum last week which states that courts have long held that it is permissible to objectively discuss the different holidays (including Easter) that are celebrated and what their meaning is to those who celebrate them.

ADF Senior Legal Counsel David Cortman wrote in a blog posted last week – titled "Easter: Bunny or Jesus?" –that simply talking about Jesus does not violate the "so-called separation of church and state."

Still More Religious Bigotry by Atheists

Buon giorno. Atheists really wonder why they are the least-liked, least trusted group? Amazing, innit? Here are more examples of obnoxious atheists misbehaving like juvenile delinquents that are desperate for attention. When atheists get called on their petty tricks, they play the victim card. Agonizing.

First, can you really believe that they are silly enough to think that we'll believe their story that this is an attempt to "increase communications"? Mislead me again, Marvin!
"They say their ad is intended to spark dialogue with people of faith on the existence of God, but you don't draw people into conversation by poking fun of the beliefs," Glenn Stanton, director for Family Formation Studies at Focus on the Family in Colorado Springs, told The Christian Post.

Here we go again! Atheists hate laws that protect anything that would allow Christian speech, it seems. Here is a case of blatant disregard of the Equal Access Act, which allows student-run Christian groups the same rights as other student-run groups at school. But no, atheist bigotry wants the laws ignored and discrimination to rule the day.
A newly appointed state director of an atheist activist group said that he will fight two national Christian-based organizations for what he alleges to be proselytizing at public schools while "targeting the impressionable minds of our children."
Al Stefanelli, the former president of United Atheist Front and presently the Georgia state director for American Atheists, Inc., said he will take action against the Child Evangelism Fellowship and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes this year. Both groups conduct after-school and break-time activities on school campuses throughout the United States with the approval of school officials.
When asked by The Christian Post as to what actions he would take against these groups, Stefanelli said, "I cannot get into specifics at this time, as we are still in the planning/strategizing stages. You can be confident that we will, as always, operate within the law, using peaceful means."
Operating within the law? This whole thing is a blatant disregard of federal law! When atheists wonder why I don't trust them, I can show them this, capice? Anyway, you can read the rest of "Atheist Activist Targets Two National Christian Fellowships" here

Atheists gang up on a Christian film to give it low ratings. In some ways, this is nothing new. I see atheist trolls attacking all the time, giving low ratings to books, YouTube videos, music, movies, whatever. There is nothing honest about this, they haven't actually read the books, they just attack. (One memorable review is about atheist S.E. Cupp's book, the reviewer said that she's not really an atheist because she was not vitriolic! I guess it means to be a true atheist, one must be an obnoxious jerk?) These people wonder why we shut off the comments on the Question Evolution Day Page on Facebook; trolls attacked, left inappropriate (and extremely off-topic, and extremely illogical) comments. So, in some ways, this is typical of modern obnoxious Internet atheist behavior.
Christian film "Suing the Devil" has met some challenges since its release, having suffered an online atheist "mob attack" and heavy pirating. However, the film's writer/director Tim Chey says the attacks and theft are worth it and that it is all in a day's work for the evangelist.
  
Chey told The Christian Post that recently the producers of the film received an email from a group called "anonymous Atheists," who said they would "mob attack" the film on IMDb, the largest film site on the Internet.

Within three days, the film's score dropped from seven to four.

"We tried contacting IMDb, but they turned deaf ears to us. The problem with a low score is it stigmatizes the film," Chey said, pointing to other Christian movies that have also received an unwarranted bad review. Some of these include "Courageous" and "Facing the Giants."

Can't Talk About That Here

Buona sera. It's been a while since I talked about my buddy Neil. Since he had some circumstances that fit in with what I've been talking about off and on the past few months, he's in the spotlight. Wave to the nice people, Neil. I'm telling your story.


At the Big Soulless Corporation where he works, there was a kind of "meet and greet" for new employees. One of the higher-level managers facilitated the thing, made announcements, had people introduce themselves and so on. Some of the questions he asked made Neil a bit introspective. He went up to that manager later, after most of the crowd had dispersed, and said that he had changed a great deal over the past few years.


"In what ways?", the manager asked.


Neil mentioned that he liked reading apologetics and logic things (including mine). When asked, "What the hell is apologetics?", Neil told him that it was the defense and presentation of the Bible and Christian faith.


"Oh, religious stuff, then", the manager said. 


At that moment, a managerette that was standing next to him said, "This is where I leave!", and briskly walked away. This strikes me as amazingly rude, too. Neil and the manager continued to talk a bit after that. There was no preaching, Bible quoting or anything of that nature.


The next day, a lower-level manager told Neil that the other ones were flustered because "You're not supposed to talk about religion here". Neil startled her by saying that such a directive is discriminatory. (One Mafioso was reported to have told people under him that they cannot wear "religious" jewelry and so forth. I can see frowning on a "repent or burn in Hell" shirt, but he's overly restrictive.) If they make a fuss or try to do gag orders, Neil is more than willing to get them straightened out by Alliance Defense Fund, Liberty Counsel, Rutherford Institute and others. Big Soulless Corporation is terrified of negative publicity, and they would get it in spades.


Hypocritically, the Big Soulless Corporation allowed a big astrological symbol to be prominently displayed on a white board. Neil had to see this every day for over a month, and was offended by it. But he didn't act like a whining leftist, he just tolerated it. BSC claims to value "relationships", "integrity", "compassion" and other stuff — all of which Neil has seen proved to be lies. They also claim to respect "diversity", including race, age, culture, experience, background and so on. Yet, they demand uniformity of performance. Pretty much a clone club.


So, there is Neil's example of religious discrimination. But I promise you, if he was a Mohammedan in full garb, no manager would dare say anything about it, capice? It's "in" to kick Christians today, you know.

Greatest "Hits" Against Christians in 2011

Buon giorno. Although it shouldn't, it amazes me when atheists will pretend that not only are Christians lying about being harassed and persecuted (despite frequent documentation in this Weblog and in other places), then they try to act like they are the victims! I strongly suspect that any "discrimination" against atheists are because of their vituperative personalities (and doing stupid things, like the atheist that applied for a job with a church group) rather than the simple fact that they are atheists. None so blind as those who will not see, huh, Lela?

But I digress.
DefendChristians.Org solicited the members of their online community to vote for their choice of the top ten anti-Christian acts of 2011 in the U.S.

"I am always surprised at the results of our poll and this year is no exception," said Dr. Gary Cass of DefendChristians.Org. "The fact the number one and number two issues are public policy and political in nature shows Christians are very concerned about the political direction of the country. I wouldn't be surprised if this translates into a strong political response in 2012."

These results do not necessarily represent the views or priorities of DefendChristians.org. They are a measure of the opinions of a cross-section of subscribers who responded to our online poll.

The Top Ten Anti-Christian Events in 2011 are:
