A Christian America

By By Nude0007 ~

I hear many Christians stating that this is a Christian nation. This is obviously not so, because we still have some freedoms that the upper class and the religious right have not yet been successful in eliminating. However, let us indulge them for a moment, let us look at what it means to have a Christian nation.

First of all, America would certainly become Catholic. Catholics make up the largest denomination in this country, so even if we put the matter to one of the last democratic actions we would have, Catholics would win by an overwhelming majority. This means that America would now be run by the Pope. Now running a country is a bit different than running a religion, but I am sure that he would do the best that he could. However, I can see no way that he would not decide to enact God’s laws on a national scale. (Okay, I really think he would be ecstatic to get the chance, but let’s just stick to the facts.)

First thing to go is Science. It is a topic hotly debated already. Science gave us the Theory of Evolution, which is obviously against God, so all science must be evil and must no longer be taught. History also tends to back up science, especially when many different sources are consulted to help eliminate bias, but this field of study also quite often fails to support the existence of God or Jesus. Therefore we don’t need that to be taught either. Biology and Social studies aren’t needed either, since all we really need to know is God’s will and that is found only in the Bible. Therefore henceforth school will only teach the Bible with a smattering of basic math so that one can offer up the proper tithe. This frees up a great many frustrated teachers to get jobs closer to God like the Priesthood, or some capacity in the church. Failing that they can become farmers and the women can go back to being housewives as they should.

This also means that we don’t need scientists, pharmacists, doctors, nurses, historians, librarians, physicists or any other advanced positions that science brings, because they are only there to subvert God’s will. No longer will we take extreme measures to save premature babies or use advanced medical techniques to ease and prolong the lives of the elderly. God’s will must take its natural course and not be thwarted! Forget all this medicine for women’s needs, whatever they have to deal with is a part of being a woman as God decreed. We should stop interfering with the natural processes God built into women. Again, all these people can also join the clergy or become simple honest farmers so that they can be closer to God.

That’s a good start, but now we must enact actual laws to live by. Our present legal system favors the criminal, while lawyers get rich off of arguing cases for people whom they know are guilty. It is time to go back to God’s holy law! All have sinned, and the wages of sin is death. No, not just the heathen, it says ALL, even the Christians must be subject to God’s perfect law, and all crimes are punishable by death. There were no prisons in Jesus’ time except for debtors prisons. If you owed someone and couldn’t pay them, they took the matter to the local magistrate and he threw you into a large cell with others of your ilk, till your friends and family could come up with the amount you owed. Oh, and forget the government having to feed you or provide sanitary conditions, if you get food your family must bring it to you daily. But I digress; let’s get back to the law as put forth in the Bible. Jesus said that women should be totally subservient to their husbands, so no more equality of citizenship. Sorry. If you disobey your husband, he has the perfect right to take you to the walls of the city and declare that you are a disobedient wife. At this point she is to be stripped and stoned by everyone there until it is certain she is dead. Then she is to be left for the vultures to pick at her bones as an example to all others.

Disobedient sons get the same treatment, and by the way, proof is not needed! We don’t need a large ponderous legal system! Just make your claim and that’s it. Surely God would strike down anyone to make such a false claim? Let’s see…. Have no other God’s before me. If someone isn’t seen worshiping God or praying constantly, or perhaps they don’t carry their Bible around with them everywhere, then they must not be putting God first. Stone them. Remember, proof isn’t needed, just the accusation. Remember, homosexuality is a very serious crime, so now we can stone the evil abominations’. Remember, just pick a commandment, accuse someone, and they get stoned! Now that’s simple justice! Now we don’t need all those evil lawyers, but we don’t want them in our clergy, so surely we can find the sin in their life and expose it till there are no more lawyers.

Being rich is a severe stumbling block to ones salvation, so in order to help the rich along toward the path of righteousness, the church will confiscate all their wealth. The problems brought on by wealthy people using their money to become even richer are legion, and nothing good will ever come of it. Everyone will earn only a minimum wage so that we will stay humble and obedient to God.

Well, I think you get the idea about legal matters. Now America is so much better off, but our job is not yet done. The Bible teaches us that even though God created the human body and it is perfect and beautiful (so much so that he wanted us to live nude and never retracted that statement), but the Devil has corrupted it, so we must be ashamed of our bodies. We must ensure that men and women are covered head to toe to hide their shameful bodies. There goes the fashion industry. Oh well, probably for the best anyway. I have always been sure that high heels were decidedly harmful and stupid anyway. Oh yes, we must all take to wearing dark sunglasses, since lusting after a woman is a very serious crime, we must not be mistakenly taken for looking at a woman too long. (see accusations and stoning above)

Now we are totally obeying God’s law, but just to remove as much temptation as we can we must reenact some old practices. Yes, Sarah Palin is right but she doesn’t go nearly far enough. We must burn all books beside the Bible! After all anything besides this book is unnecessary and could possibly lead someone astray.

Oops! How silly of me! I forgot that all the products of the evil Science must be removed as well! It must be evil to have cell phones, computers, tv’s, air-conditioning (hot and cold), automobiles, or any technology that cannot be made personally. After all, it was the fruit of the tree of Knowledge that Satan used, so it must have been near and dear to him, especially since God himself told us not to touch the stuff. In order to be more holy we must rid ourselves of as much knowledge as we can. The Republican and Tea Parties have shown us the way, but we must build on their foundation.

Now we are much better off! We have far fewer worries! We don’t have to be so concerned with others violating our civil rights, because we have only those rights that God gives us (as determined by the Pope). Just to be safe, though, I’d keep well to myself lest someone decides they just don’t like you and make an accusation against you. We know where that leads. Look on the bright side, now the governmental debt will soon be reduced to zero! Most governmental spending is on things we will no longer need, like programs for education, welfare, arts, and maybe even the C.I.A., N.S.A., and many others. Of course, we may decide to up our military budget so that we can finally launch a strike to rid ourselves of all the other religions at home and abroad, but that will surely end sometime. Meanwhile, we only have to pay ten per cent to the church, rather than in excess of twenty five to the government! Forget retirement! If your family cannot support you in your old age, then you’ll likely die without advanced medical care or at least of starvation being left to your own devices.

Now I’m sure someone, especially those who keep trying to make this country a more Christian one would disagree with this assessment, but it is all in the Bible and MUCH WORSE! The fact that they refuse to acknowledge that this is what Jesus preached just shows that they aren’t really reading it or they aren’t really comprehending what they read. As for me, I think we have far too little separation of church and state as it is. I don’t think religious organizations or clergy should get a tax break, and I don’t think Federal funds should be used to support religious organizations or be sent to State or Local governments that give money to religious organizations. Why? It is completely unfair to other religions that are “unrecognized” and so don’t qualify and to secular organizations who can’t get those monies.

Are You an Atheist Success Story?

By Avangelism Project ~ F acts don’t spread. Stories do. It’s how (good) marketing works, it’s how elections (unfortunately) are won and lost, and it’s how (all) religion spreads. Proselytization isn’t accomplished with better arguments. It’s accomplished with better stories and it’s time we atheists catch up. It’s not like atheists don’t love a good story. Head over to the atheist reddit and take a look if you don’t believe me. We’re all over stories painting religion in a bad light. Nothing wrong with that, but we ignore the value of a story or a testimonial when we’re dealing with Christians. We can’t be so proud to argue the semantics of whether atheism is a belief or deconversion is actually proselytization. When we become more interested in defining our terms than in affecting people, we’ve relegated ourselves to irrelevance preferring to be smug in our minority, but semantically correct, nonbelief. Results Determine Reality The thing is when we opt to bury our

So Just How Dumb Were Jesus’ Disciples? The Resurrection, Part VII.

By Robert Conner ~ T he first mention of Jesus’ resurrection comes from a letter written by Paul of Tarsus. Paul appears to have had no interest whatsoever in the “historical” Jesus: “even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, we know him so no longer.” ( 2 Corinthians 5:16 ) Paul’s surviving letters never once mention any of Jesus’ many exorcisms and healings, the raising of Lazarus, or Jesus’ virgin birth, and barely allude to Jesus’ teaching. For Paul, Jesus only gets interesting after he’s dead, but even here Paul’s attention to detail is sketchy at best. For instance, Paul says Jesus “was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures” ( 1 Corinthians 15:4 ), but there are no scriptures that foretell the Jewish Messiah would at long last appear only to die at the hands of Gentiles, much less that the Messiah would then be raised from the dead after three days. After his miraculous conversion on the road to Damascus—an event Paul never mentions in his lette

Christian TV presenter reads out Star Wars plot as story of salvation

An email prankster tricked the host of a Christian TV show into reading out the plots of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and Star Wars in the belief they were stories of personal salvation. The unsuspecting host read out most of the opening rap to The Fresh Prince, a 1990s US sitcom starring Will Smith , apparently unaware that it was not a genuine testimony of faith. The prankster had slightly adapted the lyrics but the references to a misspent youth playing basketball in West Philadelphia would have been instantly familiar to most viewers. The lines read out by the DJ included: "One day a couple of guys who were up to no good starting making trouble in my living area. I ended up getting into a fight, which terrified my mother." The presenter on Genesis TV , a British Christian channel, eventually realised that he was being pranked and cut the story short – only to move on to another spoof email based on the plot of the Star Wars films. It began: &quo


By David Andrew Dugle ~   S ettle down now children, here's the story from the Book of David called The Parable of the Bent Cross. In the land Southeast of Eden –  Eden, Minnesota that is – between two rivers called the Big Miami and the Little Miami, in the name of Saint Gertrude there was once built a church. Here next to it was also built a fine parochial school. The congregation thrived and after a multitude of years, a new, bigger church was erected, well made with clean straight lines and a high steeple topped with a tall, thin cross of gold. The faithful felt proud, but now very low was their money. Their Sunday offerings and school fees did not suffice. Anon, they decided to raise money in an unclean way. One fine summer day the faithful erected tents in the chariot lot between the two buildings. In the tents they set up all manner of games – ring toss, bingo, little mechanical racing horses and roulette wheels – then all who lived in the land between the two rivers we

Why I left the Canadian Reformed Church

By Chuck Eelhart ~ I was born into a believing family. The denomination is called Canadian Reformed Church . It is a Dutch Calvinistic Christian Church. My parents were Dutch immigrants to Canada in 1951. They had come from two slightly differing factions of the same Reformed faith in the Netherlands . Arriving unmarried in Canada they joined the slightly more conservative of the factions. It was a small group at first. Being far from Holland and strangers in a new country these young families found a strong bonding point in their church. Deutsch: Heidelberger Katechismus, Druck 1563 (Photo credit: Wikipedia ) I was born in 1955 the third of eventually 9 children. We lived in a small southern Ontario farming community of Fergus. Being young conservative and industrious the community of immigrants prospered. While they did mix and work in the community almost all of the social bonding was within the church group. Being of the first generation born here we had a foot in two

Morality is not a Good Argument for Christianity

By austinrohm ~ I wrote this article as I was deconverting in my own head: I never talked with anyone about it, but it was a letter I wrote as if I was writing to all the Christians in my life who constantly brought up how morality was the best argument for Christianity. No Christian has read this so far, but it is written from the point of view of a frustrated closeted atheist whose only outlet was organizing his thoughts on the keyboard. A common phrase used with non-Christians is: “Well without God, there isn’t a foundation of morality. If God is not real, then you could go around killing and raping.” There are a few things which must be addressed. 1. Show me objective morality. Define it and show me an example. Different Christians have different moral standards depending on how they interpret the Bible. Often times, they will just find what they believe, then go back into scripture and find a way to validate it. Conversely, many feel a particular action is not
