Springtime, and the armies of atheism have gathered forces and are starting their annual spring offensive to ensure that the name “God” or reference to any religion — other than their own, of course — is not even vaguely referenced in any school graduation ceremony or other function held on public property.
Atheism is that religion whereby the devoted believer (atheist) believes that there positively is no supreme being greater than himself. His faith is that there is no possibility of a creator or deity that could be omnipotent, more powerful than himself or have a more superior intellect than his own.
The Atheist Nation is growing, and it has emerged from its dark, basement netherworld to make its presence known in town halls, city streets, roadside billboards, school grounds and courtrooms across America.
Atheists spend vast sums of money to promote their own religion in their war against those who profess faith in any other religion.
During a field sermon on the island of Bataan in 1942, with the entire island reeking with the stench of rotting human flesh, W.T. Cummings observed, “There are no atheists in foxholes.”
Anyone who has endured heavy enemy artillery fire and has turned to see that his friend’s head has been blown off or that he himself was severely wounded and bleeding profusely would quickly abandon his atheism and pray to God for the shelling to stop so a medical corpsman could get to him to stop the bleeding and put his intestine back into his body.
I’m curious. Does an atheist also stop being an atheist when his 5-year-old is rushed to the hospital after being run over by a truck? Does he remain an atheist when his dear wife is diagnosed with stage three cancer?
Does he stop being an atheist when his year-old baby girl turns blue, stops breathing and he has to cool her tiny body in the snow and give CPR until the ambulance gets there? Does an atheist thank God when the sweet baby finally gasps for breath? Saying maybe a little “Thanks,” under his breath?
Does he stop being an atheist when he is told his odds are bad for surviving his heart operation? Does he remain an atheist when he is holding the hand of a loved one who is suffering and screaming in agony while dying?
Are atheists only atheists during the Spring Offensive, the Holiday Offensive and after their war-room meetings? Or do they abandon atheism during their child’s brain cancer treatments and return to atheism when the cancer is gone?
Is it only in foxholes, or also in other times of great personal tragedy, pain or suffering, that an atheist ever says, “Please, God” or wipes away a tear and says “Thank God”? He can always return to atheism and denying God as soon as the holiday season begins.
