Every now and then there is a lawsuit that really defines the desperation of a failing social movement. The recent decision of one of America’s most intolerant religious organizations, American Atheists, provides a prime example. This group of anti-Christian zealots has filed a lawsuit they will surely lose. But they will suffer an even more resounding defeat in the court of public opinion. Put simply, the lawsuit will demonstrate that atheism is largely the result of emotional inferiority rather than intellectual superiority.
If you think my claims are over-stated, just read the following excerpt from their civil (actually it is quite un-civil) legal complaint:
“The plaintiffs, and each of them, have suffered, are suffering, and will continue to suffer damages, both physical and emotional, from the existence of the challenged cross. Named plaintiffs have suffered, inter alia, dyspepsia, symptoms of depression, headaches, anxiety, and mental pain and anguish from the knowledge that they are made to feel officially excluded from the ranks of citizens who were directly injured by the 9/11 attack and the lack of acknowledgement of the more than 1,000 non-Christian individuals who were killed at the World Trade Center.”
That’s right, ladies and gentlemen, you heard it right. The American Atheists are suing over the two giant World Trade Center beams that remained standing and formed a cross at Ground Zero on 911. The cross, which gave comfort to millions, is now in a taxpayer-funded museum. And the atheists are hoping to exploit it for millions.The godless are suing to ban the cross because it... causes them to suffer (inter alia!) "dyspepsia, symptoms of depression, headaches, anxiety, and mental pain and anguish from the knowledge that they are made to feel officially excluded"... you know the drill.
Adams is sure the lawsuit will fail. I wish I shared his confidence in judicial rationality. But the amusing thing here is the evidence that the physiologically fragile atheists are showing for... impending evolutionary extinction.
Atheists weren't always so fragile. They invented the guillotine, the gulag, the killing fields. Snuffing a hundred million
But now (sniff...sniff) the little godless brownshirts seem to have lost their élan. The sight of millions of Christians used to inspire them to genocide. Now the sight of a single cross gives them... indigestion and headaches, inter alia.
What a feeble sub-species. On their way to evolutionary extinction, I surmise. Heck, maybe evolution isn't all bad.
But then I have this recurring fear: atheists will be declared an Endangered Species, and we'll have to... have to... help them breed!
