FAMOUS ATHEISTS

Since the atheist movement has become so anti-religion, let us highlight a few of the men who were atheists and their impact upon the world and society in general. From Charles Darwin's racist Origin of Species to Fidel Castro's island-prison called Cuba, they have all sought to change the world according to their atheist faith!

A Simple Solution to Restoring the "Disappearing Black Community"

Truth. That's it. If the black community—its leaders and people of influence—would accept the fact that the liberalism they have so passionately embraced for the past half century has been more devastating than anything the Ku Klux Klan could ever had imagined. In fact, the legislative agendas and public policies of the Democratic Party have virtually rendered the Klan obsolete! This is in light of the March 11 town hall meeting in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to discuss the matter of "The Disappearing Black Community and How We Can Get It Back."

I submit two key factors that support such a politically-incorrect position, because according to the current main stream media and the black elite that depends upon them, meetings and gatherings, they  are the only ones qualified to address black issues. However, if even the most unsophisticated mind were to merely examine the history and the empirical evidence, one could only conclude that something is hideously wrong. FULL POST

"Unionista" Movement Has Revealed Willingness to Enslave Taxpayers

The term "Solidarity" was first introduced into the world's lexicon as a force during the mid-1970's and most of the '80's as Poland's Lech Walesa and the Polish trade union fought to free themselves from the clutches of the Soviet Bloc communist rule. Today, our public service employees cry solidarity in the name of securing unbridled control of the taxpayer's wallet through an alliance with government. Simply put, the government is the mechanism for extracting union dues from the workers, give it to the Marxist-inspired union bosses, who in turn give it to the politicians for additional favors in the form of unsustainable pension programs, education monopolies and fiscally unmanageable jobs programs enacted by legislative fiat. Now, we are witnessing the willingness of the unionista force to leverage their services against the public good.

The symbol of the clinched fist—the international symbol for the socialist movement—is now a prominent sign paraded through our streets and capitals by our own teachers, policemen, firemen and others whose salaries and benefits depend on the burden of the taxpayer. We have apparently forgotten that the 36,000 American soldiers killed in the Korean War and the 54,000 lost during the Vietnam War fought and died over there in order to prevent the communist movement from enslaving us over here! I would wager that the average teacher is oblivious to the fact that their own union leadership at the top despises our present way of life, and long for the tried-and-failed promises of socialism. The grassroots public service employee actually loves America and our way of life, but is easily manipulated to march and protest for benefits while their puppet masters are after power! FULL POST

Why Churches Embrace Marxism

I can distinctly recall part of a conversation I had with a fellow pastor several years ago, in which he stated that communism was first started in the church. I was slightly shocked to hear him say that, but was more interested in why he would bring such a notion up to me since we really were not even talking about that subject in the slightest. Perhaps he was responding to some of my sermons or my writings which clearly state my position that communism is the most insidious form of evil known to modern human history! When our pastoral leadership should be exercising their duties as the "watchmen" as described in Ezekiel 3:16-21, they themselves have become the actual breaches in the wall of protection for the people.

For example, Cuba's now president emeritus Fidel Castro came to Harlem, New York in 1995 and was received as one of the world's greatest rock stars. He visited the Abyssinian Baptist Church spoke from the pulpit with pastor Calvin Butts and other ministers flanking him on each side (See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n7dJ8QbClTs). Question: how can a self-professed atheist be given such a place of prestige in a place we know and dedicate to be "the Lord's House?" Even though it is readily known that Castro is an overt enemy to the United States and freedom itself, there seems to be a fatalistic lapse of memory of how many hundreds of thousands of lives he has extinguished! As Christianity values the individual human life, the communist ideology that Fidel Castro has been driven by only sees that human life as how it fits into the collective. Yet, many of our churches embrace to latter, and see him as the role model and hero. FULL POST
