Atheist Anger Causes Comedian to Retract Faith Comments

A few days ago  comedian and actor Norm Macdonald made some nice, and seemingly sincere, comments about his faith. Since the tolerant athesits only allow people to denigrate religious beliefs, these naturally rose up like a mob with pitchforks and torches.

I assumed that this would blow over, and it did, but "and how".

"First, comedian Norm Macdonald frustrated atheists and now he’s disappointing religious adherents. Following his highly-publicized Twitter spat with non-believers over the weekend — a dialogue during which the former “Saturday Night Live” cast member said that he studies Biblical scriptures and believes in God — the entertainer now is backtracking....."

The actual content of the shameful retreat can be read on the above-linked article. 

I don't know if his agent talked him into this, if he was afraid of boycotts, loss of ticket sales, possible heckling at his gigs, or a concern that he would have a hard time getting new jobs, but I cannot believe how quickly, easily, and thoroughly he caved in. 

-This illustrates the intense hatred and bizarre amount of influence that the God-hating/denying subsection of the people in the US have.

The devout and moderately religious are of course required to suck it up whenever someone makes a comment that ridicules religion and God. 

Atheists, resting comfortably in the bosom of a society that in no way could have been created except by a people to loved and rightly feared their God, use the very freedoms of that society to undermine and suppress one of the pillars on which that society rests. Safe and secure, they bite that hand that protects them, claiming that religion is the worst thing that has happened to the world. 

When taking into account the fact that atheists, being a very incurious and unintellectual group, revel in their insistence that everything, including life, came about with no act of a Prime Mover, one must recall two points. 

The first one notes that, if there is no God, then people have nothing to prevent them from treating others as, for example, lions do - killing the cubs of another lion that has been killed or driven off. Atheists would largely cower in fear if people were released from the restraints that religion places on them, especially if the State, their god, no longer is in operation. 

I can't find the exact quote, but it goes like this:

'If the only difference between a man's nose and the snout of a pig is an accident of nature, then there is no reason that I cannot slaughter him like a pig'.

The second is only one of the remarks by our Founders in which the strong tie between our type of government and the culture of the people is stressed:

“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” -John Adams
