The Atheist as Prophet

At the base of Islam is the well-known confession, "There is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is his prophet." This defines the fundamentalism of that oppressive and close-minded religion: One authority, and one voice for that authority, any­thing outside of which is damnable.

Atheist's say they abhor this type of dogma­tism, preferring "freethinking"—a not unwhole­some thing in itself—but many unwittingly fall into a very similar type of self-imposed mental blindness in the name of free-thought. One need only recall the history of Marxist-inspired revolution, and the mass graves of "dialectical mate­rialism" (a fancy phrase for "atheistic struggle," or which could well be put, "atheist jihad"). This history has well been written of elsewhere.

 Among the atheists who inspired those slaughters stands the figure of Leon Trotsky, whom Hitchens relates was immortalized in a definitive biography entitled The Prophet. "Prophet" now carries a pejorative to the extent that it implies a voice of authority: especially in the form of God telling us how to live. In the past, when these atheists have taken a stand against God, they have turned and formed their own dictatorship and ruled as gods themselves. The creed of atheism, were its proponents careful and honest enough to formulate it, would inevi­tably mimic the Islamic pillar thusly: "There is no god, and I am His prophet."

This is a direct quote from a great little book by Douglas Wilson.   "God Is"   How Christianity Explains Everything...  a reply to the late Christopher Hitchens, a renowned atheist who wrote a book "God Is Not Great :  How Religion Poisons Everything".

Delicious reading.

 There is a very power video making the rounds in the internet.  It is a collection of testimony from the children of rape.  They are standing with Richard Mourdock.  Very powerful.   It stimulated this exhange. 

From James.

These are touching examples of why none of us LIKE abortion. My side of our family would probably not exist if abortion had been legal in the 1920's. However, I still have reservations over the legal aspect of all this--who makes the actual decision regarding an abortion. The police? The courts? The church? The woman?


That's the central question. Before 1973 it was up to the states to define and defend life. SCOTUS served up Roe which fraudulently grasped jurisdiction, committed sociology rather than law, based upon at least three false assumptions, built upon a court case whose standing was based upon fraud. States, under our form of government defend life. The jurisdiction was always there first. The Texas AG in Roe falsely asserted that the unborn merited protection under the 14th Amendment's due process clause. That was a fatal error to the case. The 14th Amendment states that one is person under the law once he is born. The pre-born therefore are not "legal" persons under the 14th Amendment. The states however, pre-Roe, began with the idea that it is the function of states to protect the lives of their citizens as we are equally endowed by our creator with inalienable rights. The act of human creation was always considered to be conception. Therefore, the rights of the un-born are to be named and protected by the same body which protects the rest of us. Based upon the Declaration Principles, the states protected life beginning at conception and ruled it worthy of legal protection beginning then. Enforcement begins with the assumption that humans are fully human before birth and nobody, including mom can destroy another human life without the expectation of accountability. Neither mothers or the church, or courts have the jurisdiction to  take the life of another innocent human being. The legislature is the representative body which crafts the laws by which the courts enforce (due process). We don't allow individuals to appeal their own "conscience" when it comes to defining life nor do we give individuals the power of life and death at any other time except for clear cases of self-defense against deadly aggression. There isn't justification to grant mothers the power of life and death over their own offspring; and this doesn't violate her rights to control her own body. Once conception has begun, there are two humans involved. Mom doesn't have the  moral  jurisdiction and shouldn't have the legal jurisdiction to kill her own,  now living offspring. Any more than she has the moral legal right to end the life of her infirmed mom who is confined to a wheel chair or lying helpless in her death bed. Why?

 1. Life is God-given. 2. Rights are God-given. 3. God gave us government to restrain evil. 4. God gave us His law to define evil. 5. God ordained human government to enforce His laws. Pagans reject all of these ideas. SCOTUS is a pagan institution.  Iowans should resist Roe as the  legal and sociologic  rubbish it is and  to define life as worthy of protection from the beginning.  That IS with Our jurisdiction.
