Exposing the Atheist

Religious nutcases are a dime a dozen, but Robert T. Lee outshines the competition. On his site, Society for the Practical Establishment and Perpetuation of the Ten Commandments, he has a section dedicated to “Exposing the Atheist.” He makes the following claims, and asks us to “examine these articles very carefully.”

  • Satan is the “author” of atheism and the “atheistic god”
  • “Atheism is properly defined as a denial of the existence of God in the midst of full knowledge that the true God does indeed exist.”
  • “Atheists are extremely dangerous people. Therefore laws should be made against them by all the governments of the world community.”
  • “Atheists are responsible for youth crime.”
  • Atheists “hate the TEN COMMANDMENTS” because God wrote them, so we teach our children to disobey them.
  • “Atheism is therefore a doctrine of demons, and in many, if not all cases, atheists are demon-possessed.”
  • Atheists are “the biggest fools on earth.”

In other words, this psycho is actively working towards laws being made against atheists because they are “extremely dangerous.”

Could you imagine if he used a different word than atheists? For instance, “Jews are responsible for youth crime.” Or, “Black people are extremely dangerous. Therefore laws should be made against them…” Or heaven forbid, “Christians are extremely dangerous people. Therefore laws should be made against them…”

Doing that isn’t acceptable. So why is is acceptable to do it with atheism?

    There is one problem with his thinking.

    We don’t believe in satan either :)

  • Proto

    Perhaps because we don’t have political representation yet? It doesn’t seem to matter what arguments are put forth, until someone makes a well televised speech such prejudice will still be generally acceptable.

  • Francesc

    I love specially that one:

    “Atheism is properly defined as a denial of the existence of God in the midst of full knowledge that the true God does indeed exist.”

    Yeah! He got us. We know that the true -his?- God exist and that we will be doomed for all the eternity to hell. And still, we choose to fight against God. Why? Two options:

    1.- “Atheism is therefore a doctrine of demons, and in many, if not all cases, atheists are demon-possessed.”
    So, I should have some supernatural power, shouldn’t I? Oh yes, rational thinking.

    2.- We want to go to hell to avoid sharing our eternity with people like him. Disgusting.

    P.S.: I can hear it: “he is not a real christian”

  • Mogg

    Did you read his article “Evil freedom should not be allowed” on the main website? Whoa!

    Incidentally, Daniel, clicking directly from the link you gave to the Society’s main website gave me a 404 error.

    > So why is is acceptable to do it with atheism?

    Because we non-believers are demon-possessed. Remember what Christians have historically believed themselves justified in doing in the name of “saving” those plagued by demons.

  • http://endemoniada.org Martin

    My favorite was this part:

    So, lets assume (in order to prove a point here) that atheists are right. If a human author them (and I speak as if insane), then we know for sure that no atheist, agnostic nor any other unbeliever had sense enough to author them.

    Why is that so? Because atheists are OPPOSED to GOD and His Holy COMMANDMENTS. And again, some even say the TEN COMMANDMENTS don’t exist. So if a human authored them, it was a person who had far more intelligence than any atheist, agnostic or unbeliever.

    I don’t even know what to say… The utter insanity of the “logic” used here goes beyond words.

  • http://longfun.multiply.com/ longfun

    This is fun
    From a theists point of view it is only logical to blame Satan “doubt” to be the “author” of atheism and the “atheistic god”

    I agree Atheism is properly defined as a denial of the existence of God in the midst of full knowledge that the true God does indeed exist but can’t be defined… in other words is an undefined and in such every defined god is none existing. (this includes every theists god)

    non controlled Atheists are extremely dangerous people. Therefore laws should be made against them by all the governments of the world community.
    This is a logical event as religion is no more than freely accepted laws and rules to life by, atheists will follow discussed laws, and this is growing drastically…
    The theist only forgets that all such laws also include their world of thinking

    Atheists are responsible for youth crime is only unfounded rhetoric, but if true it shows how theism is loosing its influence in society.

    This # Atheists “hate the TEN COMMANDMENTS” because God wrote them, so we teach our children to disobey them.
    is illogical atheists are simply replacing them by debatable and binding laws.

    From a theist point of view Atheism is therefore a doctrine of demons, and in many, if not all cases, atheists are demon-possessed. As atheist and even theist laws slowly drag them do disagree with their own religion.

    Atheists are “the biggest fools on earth.” is probably relating to the theist point of view on this “god” subject. it is true we atheist don’t know anything about it as there is no point in nature pointing at this “god” theory.

  • Francesco Orsenigo

    These people are cruel and dangerous monsters.
    I’m scared of what they would do if secular law wasn’t restraining them.

  • http://mehbooks.wordpress.com/ Bissrok

    I like that there are people out there that think I’m extremely dangerous. Watch out world, I follow the doctrine of demons.

  • http://arkonbey.blogspot.com arkonbey

    I just read the full article and found, what I think, is the most perfectly circular argument I’ve ever found:

    “There’s no greater argument for the existence of God than the truth of His existence”

    I mean, seriously?

  • cynic

    ” (atheists) are in favor of murdering innocent human embryos and fetuses; who are perpetuating homosexuality, lesbianism, bestiality, pornography, pedophilia and etc; ”

    “Atheists and all other nonbelievers in the true God – regardless of their level of “education” and position in society – are therefore the true criminals of the world community and if there is a sane government, it should treat them accordingly”

    Also, at the top of the website there, is a ‘produced by an ex-atheist’ icon. the way i see it , the guy was an ex-atheist and as an atheist he was involved in ‘beastiality’ and ‘pedophilia’, i mean , why else would he think atheists do that kinda thing unless he’s writing from experience

    i hereby nominate the writer of that article as a contender for biggest idiot in the world.

    If there were a large number of people saying detestable and nasty things about this moron, he’d feel endangered, too!

    I’m only dangerous if I haven’t had my breakfast…a breakfast consisting of scrambled baby, baby toast, and a big glass of baby juice.

  • http://ohdeath.smackjeeves.com Tyler

    I especially like that the subdomain for his Atheist section is ‘heathens’

    I think I will put a site dedicated to them under the subdomain, ‘hatemongerer’

  • http://www.theamenheresy.com Bill

    8 of the 10 commandments can be tracked directly to similar negative affirmations in the Egyptian Book of the Dead.

    I think he should persecute the Egyptians before the atheists.

  • http://custador.wordpress.com/ custador

    You know, we can mock this idiot and make jokes at his ignorant, red-kneck expense – but one day he’s going to turn up at some secular society dinner and unload an assault rifle on a bunch of people. Betcha. Being as fucked in the head as that guy = mental illness, and metal illness = no joke.

    Im a Christian, and I agree, this guy sucks. Whatever happened to Co-Exist?

  • ucbones

    Some people use religion-in this case Christianity-as an expression of their personal problems.
    This guy is one of them.

    With an attitude like this he is way outside of all that the Bible teaches, more than that he is completely wrong in his statements and has no respect for your views.

    I don’t agree with atheism, but we are all brothers and sisters.

    This guy definately needs to find Jesus, because, although he professes to speak for Jesus, he certainly does not know Him and only speaks for himself.

    Blessings

    Poor guy. It must be hard living in a brain that narrow. His thoughts come out all squished and distorted.

    This fruitcake is just an example of how much danger the would would be in if not for the constant vigilance of people who thank God every day for our constitutional right to say that God doesn’t exist.

    Wait…there’s a contradiction in there somewhere. Let me think about this for a while.

    As a request: Please use a rel=”nofollow” tag when linking to these nutcases. Otherwise, you provide undeserved search engine optimization for them. I bet, sites like answers in genesis or the discovery institute would rank much worse with google, if it were not for tons of disagreeing articles and blogposts, providing free backlinks.
    Nobody should help these twits spreading their message by pushing their pages in the search engines.

  • gamingguy

    Unfortunately, I think this guy expresses the views of a lot of Christians. More than there should be. I mean, atheists are less likely to be elected than any other group, including Muslims. All I have to say is this:

    The last three paragraphs opened my eyes.

    I read the incongruities and I smiled but after reading the last three paragraphs I am indignant and angered.

  • trj

    On my way home from work today I went grocery shopping, and rather than just pocketing the equivalent of $20 which the clerk mistakenly gave me back in change, I returned it. It completely slipped my mind that I’m an immoral atheist.

    DAMN IT!

    I’m puzzled by both the Bible AND calculus. I wonder what that means.

  • DarkMatter

    I suspect this site (Society for the Practical Establishment and Perpetuation of the Ten Commandments) is a joke or satirical.

  • DarkMatter

    It is the links about the jews and inner scantuary that brings suspicion. The other link is questions and answers.

    It is like:

    Anyways, it is my opinion.

    What about us Atheist that follow Joe Pesci?

    And why isn’t rape in the 10 commandments? You would think that would of been put in there somewhere…

  • http://godbegone.blogspot.com/ [GBG]

    He gets away with it for the same reason Hitler got away with marginalising the Jews and the KKK got away with marginalising black people….. he rallies the majority against the minority by demonising them (literally in his case).

    it’s not a particularly “christian” thing to do, but modern christianity isn’t particularly “christian”, It just pretends it is.

    It hides behind faith as an excuse to hate people (gays, women, atheists). The reality is, these filthy liars don’t believe in this shit any more than we do, they just pretend to to justify an otherwise abhorrent opinion.

  • a2audrey

    I’m wondering if Robert T. is a member of the Phelps clan?!?!

    I haven’t read this level vitriol outside of the Westboro Baptist Church…

  • Dr. Karl E. Taylor

    This joker has been around for a long time. I first ran into him on the alt.atheism newsgroup. He is a very sick and twisted person and his son is no better. On A.A. he had his ass handed to him so many times he ran away screaming that we were all damned to hell and he’d laugh as we burned.

    No, Lee is not satire or parody. Like Phelps and VenomFangX, he firmly believes what he says and writes. His mental capacity is lacking in any form of critical thinking skills and he is likely someone you’d see on the front page someday for taking out a group of people that didn’t believe as he does.

    He is a danger to himself and society.

    How many times do I have to say this? I don’t believe in ANY gods. :)

  • http://starvingjournalist.wordpress.com/ E. Kimbell

    Interesting find. What’s strange is that I’ve been putting together an interview series on faith and religion, and lo and behold, when I curiously searched for “atheism” in WordPress to gauge some sort of public opinion, I arrived here.

    I think an even funnier word to stick in there would be “clowns.”

  • dr.R.

    Could you imagine if he used a different word than atheists? For instance, “Jews are responsible for youth crime.” Or, “Black people are extremely dangerous. Therefore laws should be made against them…” Or heaven forbid, “Christians are extremely dangerous people. Therefore laws should be made against them…”

    Doing that isn’t acceptable. So why is is acceptable to do it with atheism?

    Oh, come on! You’re not developing a persecution complex, are you? You sound like a christian here…

  • Margaret

    Miguel: “No, I disagree. If Christ taught us to love our neighbor as ourselves, then someone who consistently tried to hate everyone (because he thinks this is what Jesus wants) can claim to be a Christian, but I have every right to say He isn’t a real Christian because he goes against Christ’s teachings.”

    Someone who tries to hate everyone is following Jesus: “If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.” -Luke 14:26

    The NT is very contradictory, so Christians can justify very different beliefs.

    “Are you now saying that any sect which includes lessons or books outside of the new testament is not truly christian?

    Are you really this thick? YES thats what I’m saying!

    If someone follows the Quran and follows the new testament, ya think he can logically call himself a Christian? No! The Book of Mormon makes specific claims about Jesus and is their primary source of teaching. Ofcourse they will *claim* to follow the NT because they *claim* to be Christians to which you erroneously *claimed* not all of them claim to be.”

    1. I’m trying to get your understanding of what a “true christian” is. Further up thread, you said true cristians follow the lessons in the new testament, you DID NOT say that true christians follow the lessons in the new testament to the exclusion of all other lessons/books. Perhaps you should consider actually saying what you mean.

    Now we have narrowed your criteria for true christians down a bit more. As near as I can tell here is what we know about true chritians according to Miguel:

    a. They believe in the divinity of jesus.

    b. They follow the lessons in the new testament. (Although you won’t tell us exactly what those lessons are or how they impact real life decisions.)

    c. They don’t follow lessons/books outside of the new testament. (I am curious about things like the Nicene Creed and the Apostle’s Creed, which clearly are not in the new testament but offer lessons many “christians” live by.)

    Do other christians want to chime in? Do you agree with Miguel’s definition?

    2. Why do you think mormons only “claim” to follow the nt? Do you have evidence that they actually don’t?

    3. I never said that mormons don’t all claim to be christian. I said that I know mormons who claim to be christian, and while it’s possible that not all mormons claim to be christian (I don’t know t), at least some do. You see, I was limiting my statement to what I have knowledge of. Try it sometime.
