Denver Archbishop Blames Atheists for Disrespecting Human Life and Leading to Our Nation’s Downfall… Like the Nazis

Denver Archbishop Samuel Aquila (below) has only been in his position for a couple of years, but he already has a firm grasp of the biggest problem in his community: Those damn dirty atheists.

Here’s what Aquila blames on atheists:

Virginia Delegate Who Claimed Disabled Children Are God’s Punishment for Abortion Is Running For Congress

Many politicians aren’t above tailoring their opinions to suit what people want to hear, sometimes zigging this way for one specific audience and then zagging for another. Take Bob Marshall, a Virginia GOP delegate now running for Congress. We previously featured Marshall on this blog in 2010, after he said this when he opposed funding Planned Parenthood:

“The number of children who are born subsequent to a first abortion with handicaps has increased dramatically. Why? Because when you abort the first born of any, nature takes its vengeance on the subsequent children. In the Old Testament, the first born of every being, animal and man, was dedicated to the Lord. There’s a special punishment, Christians would suggest.”

So, simply put, disabled children are God’s way to punish women who had an abortion.

When the heat of subsequent news stories made Marshall a little uncomfortable, he tried to weasel his way out by denying what he’d said:

Yes, There Are Pro-Life Atheists Out There. Here’s Why I’m One of Them

This is a guest post written by Kristine Kruszelnicki. Kristine is the President of Pro-Life Humanists.

There was a time when the lines seemed clearer and the slogans said everything. Pro-lifers were Jesus-loving Pope-followers with a passion for sticking rosaries on ovaries, and atheists were quick to respond with “Keep your theology off my biology!”

But then lines began to blur. Atheist and civil libertarian journalist Nat Hentoff said that “Being without theology isn’t the slightest hindrance to being pro-life.” Atheist philosophy professor Don Marquis declared abortion is “immoral” because it denies developing fetuses “a future like ours.” The host of CFI’s Point of Inquiry, Robert M. Price, author of books like Jesus is Dead and The Case Against the Case for Christ, called abortion “second-degree murder” on one of his podcasts.

Well, at least we still have the “Four Horsemen” safely in our ranks, right? Not quite. Even our beloved Christopher Hitchens considered “the occupant of the womb as a candidate member of society.” He also argued that “the unborn entity has a right on its side” and identified himself as involved with the pro-life movement.

What the heck are we atheists supposed to do with all our “Keep your rosaries…” stickers now?

Sorry, Virginia, there really are pro-life atheists.
