If you’re so innocent, why wont you admit that you’re not?

I believe my my out of context comments at Fox News have been taken even further out of context. Here’s another ‘winner’ in the mailbag.

“We felt it was entirely inappropriate for anyone to say your current religion is wrong,” Griffith told Fox News& Commentary.

So, why are you so anti-Christian? Why would you choose to burn people’s property to advance your message of aetheism? Why do you single out the Judeo-Christian God as your enemy when He is the only savior you may ever know? You are a hypocrite.

P.S. The fool has said in his heart, ”There is no God.”

Unfortunately, it does not go without saying; we aren’t going to burn Churches. Ever. Just how would that ever even get approved on Fort Bragg, even if that was our goal?

For those unfamiliar, a band on the festival lineup – Aiden – has a music video featuring a few seconds of historical footage of a few churches burning. These fires were set by religious people who deemed the occupants to be “the wrong type of religious people”. Aiden’s point was to condemn such sectarian violence. But Fox News viewers have ‘learned’ that we are supposedly going to burn a church down on Fort Bragg to be anti-Christian.

P.S. I’m not flexible enough to say things in my heart. Sounds dangerous.

They’re burning the churches down for Obama

The comments at Fox News had a surprising frequency of people who think the person in charge of the entire military (President Obama, who was not mentioned whatsoever in the article) sent little ‘ole me to burn a church. Or at least that it ‘wouldn’t surprise them’ or that he would approve of it.

[Some 'highlights' below the fold]

church burning and atheism – I thought atheists were just a bunch of peace loving folks? Maybe Obama can use this video with his re-election campaign since he hates all those folks who cling to their guns and religion!

Lee Stern

I guess this goes along with the Obama/Soros push to eliminate Christianity and Morals in the Military so that they can use the military to commit atrocities at home and oppress US citizens!

Carl Mertz

Has anyone notice that since 0bama and the Dem Party have been in office that the moral climate has been in a deep decline. You would only have to ‘look” back to the two World War and see the Nation’s we have defeated and see we are moving into that direct.

Tanya Taylor

This is not one group opposed to another this is terrorism plain and simple. Burning churches and synagogues? How can anyone in their right mind see this as anything but disgusting? I am not Jewish or Christian and I am still highly offended and disgusted by the mere thought of something like this. I am all for the freedom of expression but this is just wrong. You can get your point across without burning things. Nazi’s burned books. The KKK burns crosses and now it seems this Atheists group will take their place among other hate mongers getting their point across with burning.

Jim Hadley

I have said it once I will say it again to any of the atheists who want to answer this? What do you base your opinion on? It takes more faith, blind at that, to believe that this world just popped into being. I would love to have an inside look into Mr. Grffiths meeting of God at the Judgement. The look of disbelief will be followed by a bewildered look and the sentence “Your not supposed to be real because I didn’t believe in you?”

Alice Mahrol

Gee, why don’t they do something with burning mosques?

Oh, yeah. They’re afraid of those people and can only insult those who will turn the other cheek.

Donna Humphrey Donnell

This is promoting hate and advocates destruction of churches and synagogues…..Christianity promotes to love thy brother…..as a former military wife, who lived on base housing…this never would have been allowed in the past. I am now waiting that all chapels and synagogues be removed from all military bases. No wonder our youths are attempting to blowing up schools…look at what is out there to tell them it’s okay.

Wayne Williams

Wouldn’t burning churches equate to terrorism? I mean attacking muslim mosques is terrorism, why wouldn’t this be terrorism?

Obama nuts

CURRENT COMMUNIST GOALS or the DEMOCRATIC PROGRESSIVE PARTY GOALS. of 1958

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

Roy Keiningham

Same ole liberal hatred. I have met many, many atheist. I can count on one hand how many are actually atheist. The rest are just mad at God…probably because of daddy issues. And to the soldier who who told the lady she was misinformed..you sir lied…we all took an oath to God and country when joining the military…we all did.

To that last one, here is my oath of re-enlistment – being read by a friend and high-ranking Chaplain:

    Sheeple are bleating stupidity again…oh, wait, I meant PEOPLE are REPEATING stupidity…my bad. Not sure where those sound-alike words came from…

  • beerslayer

    The degree of ignorance and misinformation being promoted by Fox News and other agencies of that ilk is beyond staggering. I shudder to think how many people actually buy into this crap.

    So, Fox & Friends, how come you haven’t stopped doing all that PCP?

  • Sandman

    Listen bro…YOU rock!

    Now you are in the Army so you should know all about psy-ops. See how well it works on a society that throws evidence and facts to the wind in favour of blind faith? Seig Ayles! Seig Ayles!

    One more point bro….next time you hear that idiot fundy candard that there are no atheists in foxholes, ask the dimwit concerned whether he has ever met an active duty member of the UK military. As an ex-serviceman who did 6 for queen and country I can assure you that you would be lucky to find one of the faith deluded amongst HM Forces. On Sundays there is a longer que for the wash house than for the chaplins little solo pray ins. The UK are now making moves to de-religion memorial vigils after soldiers complained.

    Keep up the great work mate…..you are a sodding hero in my book.

    Justin,

    Re. UR received letter that states,”He is the only savior you may ever know?”

    Pls.recognize that, IMO we have a religious doubter that wrote that.

    Shouldn’t a true Christian NOT say “may” in thought about

    his or her Christ being a Savior?

    Further,from a psychological analytic

    point of view, why would the writer put a question mark at the end of a declarative statement?

    Ignorance or a Skeptic?

  • N. Nescio

    Is anybody else tired of the “God and Guns” trope?

    You don’t have to believe in magic sky fathers in order to believe in the Second Amendment. I know I’m not the only atheist who carries.

    You’re on a military-oriented blog. I’m sure you are in a good company. We shoot all the time. Just sayin’ :)

  • jufulu

    I spent some time reading the first (last?) third of the comments at Fox and found the comments that started out “I am an atheist, but) fascinating. Yeah, pull the other one.

    25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

    So this guy is all for getting the bible off the shelves, I take it?

    I mean it’s chock full of pornography and obscenity.

    26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

    I thought republitards hated lying from politicians, but now they want them to lie?

    I’m soooooo confused.

    28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.”

    Shorter moron: “I really am a seditious nitwit of a christeatard who wouldn’t know the Constitution if Thomas Jefferson rose from the dead and slapped me with it.”

    32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

    You’d think this moron would be blinded by the reflection off that mirror he’s looking in, since it’s the christeatards who are all for taking over everything and forcing genocidal delusion on everyone else.

    How did America become this full of moronic fuckfaces?

  • Aquaria

    Same ole liberal hatred. I have met many, many atheist. I can count on one hand how many are actually atheist.

    This poor sod has no fingers!

    The rest are just mad at God…

    Being mad at God would be like being mad at Sauron: Stupid and pointless.

    I’m mad that illiterate nitwits like this think that saying something that fucking stupid makes a point.

    probably because of daddy issues.

    How stupid do you have to be to suck at armchair psychology this much?

    And to the soldier who who told the lady she was misinformed..you sir lied…we all took an oath to God and country when joining the military…we all did.

    Sure sign of a chickenhawk piece of shit who wouldn’t even know where a military recruiter’s office is, much less have actually served.

    I left off the ass-kiss to the genocidal sky fairy. In 1986. And I wasn’t the only one. There were several of us at my swearing-in ceremony.

    What’s weird is that in my 20 years in the Air Force, I was never said “So help me god” as part of my oath. Of course this was during the atheist days of bliss until I retired 15 years ago. Ah, the smell of roasting…sorry. So, are current reenlistees expected to include “So whatever blah blah”. That what I get from staying away from any base and I am within 40 miles of JBLM.

    Its seems like the people who got all butthurt about this don’t realize that Metal music videos are sometimes ment to offend. I guess art goes over someones head.

    More and more I am starting to see the differences being an atheist has on the preceptions about me as a Solider

    Normal family in the airport sees me and thinks:

    SOLDIER!!!! and run over to shake my hand.

    People who press me on my views think:

    ATHEIST!! :( soldier

    It as if the label of atheism can make a subsect of people completly forget to “support our troops”. Fuck me, can I go to Afghanistan sooner (After RBB of course)
