Wisconsin Atheists Attempt To Force Their Religion On Cullman, Alabama

Recently in the news:

“Atheist Group Demands School Stop Prayer Caravan”

It seems that an Atheist group NOT in Alabama wants to stop a prayer caravan from happening on various CLOSED school campuses in Cullman, Alabama under the guise of separation of Church and State. Those good tax-paying atheists’ citizens want to exercise their rights to stop prayer on public property, namely the public schools and ban the rights of other good tax-paying citizens of Cullman, Alabama, even though they are not IN Alabama. Let’s take a closer look at the facts and separate the Truth and Tradition.

First and most importantly is the fact that the schools are closed and the prayers take place the Saturday BEFORE they open the academic year and are COMPLETELY on a volunteer basis. Children are NOT in attendance since the schools are CLOSED and thus no “Religion” is being “Taught.” Prayer outside of school events is not banned and thus these believing citizens are not violating any existing law or policy.

Second is that the people wanting to pray have just as much access to the public buildings as the Atheists considering that they pay the same percentage of taxes to support the school district, school grounds and buildings and they actually live in Cullman, Alabama. Paying equal taxes means that banning one person or group of people from equal access violates the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA).

It should also be noted that the volunteers pray OUTSIDE the buildings and the school buildings are never opened. Parents, grandparents and community members drive at their own expense to a CLOSED school campus, pray for 15 minutes and then at their own expense, drive to another campus and repeat the 15 minutes of prayer. So this is not costing the tax payers any money, but allowing tax payers the right to access the property that their taxes support.

Special attention should be paid to who is behind this campaign and their point of view and the stated goals of this organization attempting to undermine the majority will of Cullman, Alabama. The militant group ‘Freedom From Religion Foundation’ (FFRF) is leading the charge to stop this attempt of good tax-paying citizens from the terrible deed of uplifting this school year to God, under the disguise of the separation of Church and State. Look at the stated purpose of this militant group:

The purposes of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, Inc., as stated in its bylaws, are to promote the constitutional principle of separation of state and church, and to educate the public on matters relating to nontheism.” (Emphasis added)

FFRF, Inc. is a Wisconsin based, not-for-profit, 501c(3), charitable organization, corporation, just like a church and acting just like a church to promote their religion called Nontheism. Nontheism is the belief that there is no God or Gods, and moral values are established by the community in general and no accountability to anyone other than what a community believes to be good or evil. Donations to this Church (FFRF, Inc.) are tax-deductible just like your donations to your denomination of choice.

FFRF’s argument?

The ‘Prayer Caravan’ is an especially egregious (def: conspicuously bad, outstandingly bad, flagrant, extraordinary in some bad way; glaring; Synonyms: gross, outrageous, notorious, shocking) violation,” FFRF attorney Andrew Seidel wrote, calling the event a violation of the Constitution. “It does not matter that this event occurs outside normal school hours because prayers at other after-school events such as football games and graduations have been found unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court.”

Seems like a good argument, but let’s dissect their statement a bit further and take it piece by piece. The first goal of FFRF is to demonize what is happening (prayer) using the statement “…is an especially egregious violation,” is made to create a public outcry. Second goal is to site a lie in the form of a partial truth shown in the statement “…event occurs outside normal school hours because prayers at other after-school events such as football games and graduations have been found unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court.” However, what they don’t tell you is that the U.S. Supreme Court has NEVER heard a case and NEVER made a ruling about events that are in no way related to the school or its operations. Football games and graduations are a part of the operations of the school. The schools are CLOSED, NOT in session; NO school related activities are taking place, just taxpaying citizens and a bunch of empty buildings.  (If there is no God, why prevent people from praying to one?  lol)

Wrapping this up from the light of Truth or Tradition, this is just another attempt for Atheists to force their religion, Nontheism, upon others. It is well know that this Ministry is not in favor of organized religion because of the control the various denominations make over people and that their doctrine does not match what is written in the Bible, we would agree with FFRF for the freedom of forced religion, INCLUDING Atheism/Nontheism.

Yes, Atheism is a religion called Nontheism on the FFRF site, and is expanding rapidly. It is terribly hypocritical for FFRF to force their beliefs of their religion (Nontheism), upon others under the guise of the protection according to the U.S. Constitution of separation of Church and State. So if one form of religion is prevented from exercising their rights, should both be held to the same standard? If not, then is FFRF violating the ERA and the US Constitution separation of Church and State laws? Where is the outcry of equal civil rights, violation if the constitution and forcing ones religion upon another?

Biblical implications:

Isaiah has a sharp warning to share about this situation in his book. In the KJV, chapter 5, verse 20 we read: “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isa 5:20 KJV) This statement is part of three “woes” in a row. Look at the other three:

Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, And clever in their own sight! Woe to those who are heroes in drinking wine, And valiant men in mixing strong drink; Who justify the wicked for a bribe, And take away the rights of the ones who are in the right!” (Isa 5:21-23 NAS)

Isaiah wrote about these people a long time ago, telling us what will happen to them for this position they are taking. Ignore what will happen to them according to Isaiah’s prophecy and concentrate on the prophetical point of these woes. We are told that there will be people calling good evil and evil good and they would take away the rights of the ones who are in the right.

We are seeing this Prophecy being fulfilled right before our eyes daily. People claiming there is no God want to take away the rights of those who are in the right. These people are calling communication (prayer) with our father, Yehovah (God’s name in Hebrew) evil, “…an especially egregious violation”. Others call homosexuality good and murder (abortion) a right of the mother to decide who should live and who should die. We see bars across the land celebrating intoxication every spring break and hallowing the ‘heroes’ who can drink the most beer or shots.

 A great side note

Interesting note, the word they chose has an older, archaic meaning than what is currently accepted in today’s English language. Egregious used to mean distinguished or eminent according to various online dictionaries like www.dictionary.com (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/egregious). Don’t under estimate the intent of these lying, crooked attorneys, they know exactly what they are doing with the choice of words and they know that most people would not dig into this word. They are backhandedly claiming, “although this effort (prayer to our father) is a distinguished, eminent effort to bring God’s blessing upon our schools, it is truly a flagrant, gross, outstandingly bad, shocking violation of law, while hiding the true intent, forcing their religion on YOU”. (From TTM)

So the truth in this matter is a disguised attempt for one religion, Atheism/Nontheism, to forcefully impose their religion upon others. This is a clear violation of what they claim is separation of Church and State as well as a violation of the civil rights of tax-paying citizens, gaining equal access to property that their hard-earned taxes support.

HELP us get this out

Help us get this word out, share this article with your friends and family. Contact the media and ask why they are not support the rights of ALL taxpayers. Ask your congressmen/women why they are not protecting the equal rights of citizens and keeping the separation of Church and State from the religion of Atheism/Nontheism. There is a legal precedent that “silence is your acquiescence” meaning by your silence you are in agreement with what is transpiring. This is also shown in Numbers 30 where a man hears a vow from his wife or unmarried daughter and remains quiet, the vow must be kept. Otherwise he has the right to cancel that vow, by speaking up and not remaining silent and thus releasing her from her vow/obligation.
