Florida Pastor Wants To Register Atheists, Just Like Sex Offenders

September 1, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

I’ve honestly been staring at my computer screen for several minutes trying to figure out where to start with this one.

I guess we can start with the facts. The pastor of an online church called “Living Water Church” has proposed the creation of a “National Atheist Registry”, akin to those designed for sex offenders.

I can’t even begin to explain the reasoning behind this, so let’s just go with a direct quote.

Now, many (especially the atheists), may ask “Why do this, what’s the purpose?” Duhhh, Mr. Atheist for the same purpose many States put the names and photos of convicted sex offenders and other ex-felons on the I-Net — to INFORM the public! I mean, in the City of Miramar, Florida, where I live, the population is approx. 109,000. My family and I would sure like to know how many of those 109,000 areADMITTED atheists! Perhaps we may actually know some. In which case we could begin to witness to them and warn them of the dangers of atheism. Or perhaps they are radical atheists, whose hearts are as hard as Pharaoh’s, in that case, if they are business owners, we would encourage all our Christian friends, as well as the various churches and their congregations NOT to patronize them as we would only be “feeding” Satan.

Frankly, I don’t see why anyone would oppose this idea — including the atheists themselves (unless of course, they’re actually ashamed of their atheist religion, and would prefer to stay in the ‘closet.’).

Can you imagine! Someone admitting that they are an atheist?!? Ahhhhhhhh!!!!!

Or what about the “radical atheists”. Those troublemakers!

Indeed, their hearts must be as hard as Pharaoh’s! (Forgetting of course, that Pharaoh was the furthest thing from an atheist, but I digress).

And by buying things from an atheist store, why you are “feeding Satan”. It makes so much sense. Instead, let’s only buy things from Christian stores. Because that’s the right thing to do. We should perhaps put up signs in the windows of atheist businesses so that we can all identify them and blame them for our problems. It has worked so well in the past!

While I don’t think this “Pastor Mike” is nearly as bad as the Nazis, the idea of boycotting a business based on the faith (or lack-therof) of the owner certainly has some historical significance.

But nor do I think atheists are as bad as sex offenders. Nor would any other sane person.

But perhaps Pastor Mike has a good idea. We should start creating registries for all types of people we don’t like. That way, we can only deal with people who have the same views and opinions as ourselves.

That is a sure-fire way to promote tolerance and understanding which, as I understand, are main pillars of Christianity.

    you get close it to – no sane person would equate atheists with sex offenders

    religious people who are trying to force their religious reality on the rest of the world are not sane people
