Atheism, Christianity

What is the “Atheist Agenda?”

“Atheist Agenda” is a scary sounding term to a lot of people.  To some, it conjures up images of burning churches and outlawing the ownership of Bibles.  To others, it’s a bit less sinister, but still sounds like a concerted attempt to take away people’s sense of identity as people of faith.

In light of recent examples of the “Religious Agenda,” such as Gwinnett County’s own Mountain Park First Baptist’s blatant and repeated attempts to lead public school children in prayer, it’s worth looking at the political goals of both atheists and theists.  Here’s a short list of very clear items on the Christian Agenda:

This is, unfortunately, a short list. The breadth and scope of the Christian agenda is staggering.  It is an effort to change the country from without and within to make it a “genuinely Christian” nation.  Not every Christian, of course.  Not those who think abortion is a choice, or that homosexuality is not going to sink America into anarchy and orgy.  Rather, it is those Christians who believe that everyone should act Godly… OR ELSE.

By contrast, what is the “Atheist Agenda?”

  1. I agree with the simple caveat that that’s not the atheist agenda, that’s the secular agenda.

  2. LOL… Good job, Alison. While you’re being positive, you could make note of the fact that I frequently mention how I really don’t like the word atheist, and how it’s not a defining part of my worldview. That really, I’d like to be known for what I AM, not what I am not.

    But in all seriousness, thank you for the comment of agreement :-) If they call it the atheist agenda, I guess I have to respond in kind. But I’d much rather call it the secular agenda, too. Honestly, I’d rather just call it the secular worldview. Because if everybody just adhered to it within their own agendas… we’d have no need for an agenda and everyone would get to privately practice their own beliefs in peace.

  3. Hamby!

    I love your blogs.
    I would have commented at the examiner but alas I don’t have facebook so I can’t. I will not conform! haha

    I love the irony that our so called “atheist agenda” actually benefits those silly believers, that think we’re nothing but diabolical beings out to ruin everything.

    Keep up the good work. :)

  4. Atheist agenda:

    objectives:

    1) Removing Creation Science from curricula and outlawing its teaching in schools

    2) Outlawing personal religion in schools under the guise of “separation of church and state”

    3) Indoctrinating atheistic and evolutionary ideology through the education system, and thus the public at large

    4) Undermining Christianity and other organized religion through widespread misinformation and deceit

  5. Interesting. And I mean interesting in that except for #1, which is true, the rest is total hogwash.
