Atheists Spread Anger Where There Is Peace

Susan Jones of CNS News came up with another great cultural story, this time about how the atheist know-it-alls have a new report about how football coaches are possibly hurting the young athletes in their charge by exposing them to – Oh my gosh! – chaplains!

The link provided in the piece takes you to the breathless angry diatribe, I mean report, made by the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), who were, according to the pdf, incorporated in 1978 in Milwaukee.

Frankly, I think Milwaukee is probably more proud of the incorporation of the Beer Capital of the World than they are of these war-on-religion-mongers.

So I read the angry piece of work, “Pray to Play” and came away with a question. Could it be, dear atheists, that you are just angry because people who follow Jesus Christ have a certain calm, a peacefulness about them?

Officially, our public school system has gone so far crazy as to actually believe that teachers and coaches represent the state, and the state cannot condone any religious activity whatsoever.  Even though they have bent the meaning of the First Amendment to mean what it does not mean – instead using a phrase contained in a letter addressed to the Danbury Baptists by Thomas Jefferson as the profound interpretation of the First Amendment.  It is because of this craziness that the atheists who wrote the report are offering legal services to any athlete who is willing to stand up against the teachings of Jesus Christ.

Do you realize how angry and self-loathing you would have to be to actually make it your life’s work to pull people away from peace and goodwill?  I mean, I suppose Satan delights in it, but a human being can only get so angry. And we generally have limits on the amount of time we can handle being angry.

But make no mistake, the people at FFRF have written their little report in order to make you aware that coaches and chaplains have been ministering to football players, and the danger, in their view, is that the percentage of believers might go up.

“Barely half of college students (54%) now consider themselves Christian, yet 100% of the chaplains we investigated are Christian.”

I mean, the “report” isn’t exactly scholarly. The above sentence doesn’t even add up.  If you are discussing the chaplains in regards to the football teams, the religious views of the entire college body means nothing.  At any rate, the whole report describes the acceptance of most athletes of faith-based mentoring, as against their constitutional rights which is completely ridiculous.

Christian teachers and coaches need to step up when the bullies of atheism come barging in on their relationships with God.  The First Amendment says, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof … .”  There is no wall between church and state, as they are interpreting it, and if there was, it means that the state cannot establish a religion.  We can’t be forced to be Catholic or Lutheran or Baptist, and the argument that theses coaches are forcing a religion is ludicrous. 

It is quite literally George Orwell’s thought police that this atheist group represents, and their interpretation would mean that there would never be a hope of Western Civilization.  They represent the ancient warring factions of a destroyed empire, always looking for prey because they can’t find peace.

It’s the atheists who try to force people to reject God who are preying on our children, acting at all times to snuff out the Light of Truth that reminds us to love one another and live in peace because the Lord God is in control. Their insertion between the coach and the athlete must be thwarted because all they do is spread anger.
