Portrait of a serious atheist : Comments

By Peter Sellick, published 14/11/2017

He may concede that the Judaeo/Christian tradition has been the basis of our civilization and he may applaud that, but it is not for him.

Not surprised by the lack of interest in a convention on 'nothing'. Nothing is what atheism is; does nothing, says nothing. Call yourself an atheist by all means, but nothing further needs to be said.

Your still dragging along behind the eight ball Uncle Pete. Atheism is no longer a tool in the devils arsenal even.
It's homosexuality now.
It's wreaking havoc.
This is the new weapon against the Christian faith. It's divisive, pernicious and aggressive.

But you (sort of), go along with that one don't you? Equality and all that stupid lying S*

Diver Dan,
Your post is offensive and I am not your uncle.

maybe there is hope that some are able to see through the nonsense of pseudo science that these atheist use. Anyone denying a Creator/Designer needs to walk around with their heads in the sand. Obviously these new atheist have a moral problem with the truth they hate (Christianity) not a rational problem.

An accurate analysis. It looks like there will need to be two 'Wests' in the future, a multi-cultural, rationalist West. And alternatively, a multi-racial Christendom West. Each will be like best friends but have their own laws and values.

I think diver dan's short comment was a lot closer to the identifying the problems than Sells article.
I had a female friend come around the other day, she said she went out clubbing not long ago.
Told me "All the blokes are doing it with their best mates now', it's completely normalised".
Made some joke about every straight guy having to take on two women...

In reality, if homosexuality has become normalised and SSM becomes legalised; if the public support equality, and this is the basis of our society; then by default the church that opposes homosexuality becomes extinct because it's views make it technically bigoted and discriminatory, completely incompatible with the social norms of today's liberal society.
And a church that supports homosexuality, well how much of the bible are you willing to burn to keep the Catholic business afloat and the cash rolling in?
Give up all that money and power?
Someone has to pay for the pedophile parties right?

You've been voted out pal, by brainwashed feminised millennial libtards who been subjected to too much safe schools and women's talk.

One more thing -
"My intention in outlining the characteristics of the serious atheist is to help the Church see what it is up against, that to rely on the easy fruits of evangelism among the downtrodden and weak may be applauded..."

Why would or should that behavior be applauded?
It seems similar to a pedophile grooming a potential victim.

If the downtrodden and weak are the best you can do and you can't crack the big nuts then you're outlook doesn't look too good, no offense.
I think you're fighting a losing battle and you need to repackage and invigorate your product on it's own merits somehow to make it more appealing and popular again.
