It never ends with the hypocrite militant atheist’s at the Freedom From Religion Foundation. They just need to be ignored. We also need to pray to Jesus Christ that he wakes these lost and confused people up.
Romans 1:18-20 – For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed [it] unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, [even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Freedom From Religion Foundation Upset President Dan Barker Denied Invocation To Congress
Displaying an incredible lack of self-awareness, a group of militant atheists with the Freedom From Religion Foundation is complaining that an atheist within their ranks has been denied the chance to deliver an invocation before Congress – just days after they filed a formal complaint over an elementary student’s prayer at her school.
The FFRF, who have nothing better to do with their time than complain about people of faith, took issue with a little girl reading a Christian prayer during an open house event at her elementary school in Elizabethton, Tennessee. The group claimed that by allowing the child to recite a prayer, the school violated the “Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.” FFRF’s complaint prompted the district to not only issue a formal warning to the school’s principal, but schedule a mandatory district-wide training session on the issue.
Never mind that FFRF’s erroneous and illogical interpretation of the Establishment clause violates the Free Speech clause. What these atheists conveniently miss is that the First Amendment simply prohibits the federal government from mandating that its citizens subscribe to a specific religion…
But what’s good for the goose isn’t good for the gander, as FFRF turned right around and began complaining when one of its members was prohibited from giving an invocation at a congressional event.
“I’m suing U.S. House Chaplain Patrick Conroy, a Roman Catholic priest, for explicitly barring me as an atheist from delivering a guest invocation before Congress,” declared FFRF President Dan Barker, who noted that a U.S. district judge in Washington, D.C. already a threw out his challenge in federal court.
Now, Barker’s suing, saying his constitutional rights have been violated.
So, wait. Barker is now crying “discrimination” after being turned down from giving a congressional invocation – despite admitting that he doesn’t actually believe in a divine power to, you know, invoke – just days after arguing against the free speech rights of a young child who voluntarily offered a prayer at her school.
That just makes the kind of sense that… well, doesn’t.
