USA today reports that the American Humanist organization is running an ad campaign using the image at left. They claim that they do not wish to offend anyone and at the same time, they attack the religious beliefs of millions of Americans.
These are the very same people who claim that Christians are intolerant. This is hypocrisy at it’s worst. The humanists have no belief system of their own, so they attempt to tear down the belief system of others.
The claim that “we only want to show that you can be good without God” holds no water. If that were true, there would be no need to mention God at all. Why not just say, “This holiday season, be good for goodness sake” or something similar. Well, because that would not allow them to attack those who do believe in a God/god.
You see, humanist cannot tolerate the fact that their are those who believe in a higher power, particularly Christians. Humanists, Atheists, Freethinkers, whatever you wish to call them, claim they do not accept the belief that there is a God. And that is ok. My question then is why do they spend so much time trying to prove there isn’t a God? I don’t believe in Santa, the Easter bunny or the tooth fairy but have never spent one moment of my 70 years trying to debunk those beliefs. You see, when you really don’t believe in something, you don’t think about it and it doesn’t bother you if others do. During the next few months, we’ll receive cards from well wishing friends and neighbors with cute images of Santa and his sleigh. Does it offend me? Not in the slightest.
However, if I did have just the slightest bit of doubt, but felt that I could live my life just as well without Santa, then yes, I’d probably be offended if folks kept shoving Santa in my face.
So, I’ve come to the conclusion that these folks, deep down inside realize that their is a God and that He is in control. Unfortunately they wish to carry on with their Godless lives and their egos are so large that they cannot stand the thought of not actually having control over their lives.
