Ray Comfort is making a big deal out of a flash mob singing Amazing Grace here in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Bizarrely, he called it “A Mixing of Church and State that Atheists Can’t Stop.” But it had nothing whatsoever to do with church and state:
A Mixing of Church and State that Atheists Can’t Stop
When one lady asked for volunteers to join her at a Rivertown Mall in Grandville, Michigan, to sing Amazing Grace, 250 people responded with RSVPs, and over one thousand showed up at the mall.
What makes this different from other “flash mobs” is that the lyrics are given out in a high-quality tract form (so that anyone can join in with the singing) which gets the gospel into their hands.
Fortunately the singing at the Rivertown Mall was video-taped, and it brought tears to my eyes. In the clip you can see people holding the tracts as they sing, and at the beginning security guards are walking through the crowd not knowing who to stop.
I believe that the average American loves the original message of Christmas, and they’re tired of whining atheists threatening to sue those who display nativity scenes, etc., in public places. So here is one way they can proclaim their faith and no one can stop them.These song bursts are taking place throughout the nation. May someone do this on Capitol Hill and state properties all over the country and bring a bit of joy to the nation.
As usual, Captain Dumbass is confused. Riverside Mall is privately owned. And guess what? They could have stopped it if they wanted to. It’s their property. It’s a “public place” only in the sense that the public is welcome there, not that it belongs to the public or is government property. That’s an entirely different situation, legally. But Banana Man is never concerned about pesky little things like facts and distinctions. If he were, he couldn’t preach the bullshit he preaches.
