Thank God for Atheists!

blasphemy challenge

There's a group of concerned atheists on a crusade to stamp out Christmas. They also want to encourage people to commit the unforgivable sin of blasphemy. It's encouraging to know that the idea of a Godless universe can still spur people to action!

I'd expect that atheists would be fat, apathetic derelicts, lacking the energy to hoist themselves out of the overstuffed chairs at the university coffee house. It seems I'm wrong. The modern atheist has at least a few creative, resourceful and articulate members in the ranks. They've put up a website. That doesn't happen all by itself, you know. A website doesn't just evolve out of nothing.

These folks are rising up against the outrage that is Christianity; the dogma that has plagued human-kind for centuries and is directly responsible such appalling doctrines as 'all men are created equal' and 'do unto others as you'd have them do to you'.

Indeed, I'm certain that once the Rational Response Squad has amassed a sizeable army of enlightened heathens and educated all children to the fact that Jesus is a myth, they'll turn the focus of their energies on other issues of lesser importance to society such as feeding starving children. They'll commit themselves to the tasks of housing the homeless and employing the jobless. When they have squashed the out-dated heresy that every person is a unique and important creation of God, they'll rally themselves to the task of breathing hope back into human hearts.

And when that happens, I promise not to say, "God bless you."
