New Atheists Want to Remove Children from Your Home–or Worse!

-By Don Boys, Ph.D.

Angry New Atheists have attacked and challenged me because of my accusation that they want to remove children from the influence of parents, teachers, or preachers who teach the doctrine of Hell and the exclusive plan of salvation through Christ. One atheist from Australia wrote, “Really? This is a very serious (and demonstrably false) accusation. Please provide some evidence for this claim.” My charge is not false, demonstrably or otherwise. Atheists hate religion and consider it child abuse; hence children should not be exposed to it. Frankly, it is far worse than simply removing children from Christian homes as the following proves.

Perry Bulwer is an atheist lawyer who writes: “The educational rights of children are also undermined when they are intellectually abused with biblical literalism, anti-science creationism or denied the right to attend university.” He charges that “many fundamentalist and orthodox beliefs are highly detrimental to children’s minds.” (Religion and Child Abuse News website.) Note that he is not referring to physical abuse, but intellectual abuse because children are taught Bible truth and Creationism! But it gets worse, much worse.

The American Atheists’ website clearly proved my contention when the founder, Al Stefanelli, Georgia State Director, wrote of fundamentalist Christians, “They don’t respond to lawsuits, letters, amicus briefs or other grass-roots campaigns and they must, must, must be eradicated.” Eradicated means “to wipe out, destroy, tear out by the roots.” He continues to libel us when he lumps us with fanatics who fly planes into buildings and “people being burned for witchcraft.” Al is so uninformed that he doesn’t know that no “witch” was ever burned in America! (Check out my book, Pilgrims, Puritans, and Patriots: Our Christian Heritage!)

Nevertheless, those of us who follow Christ (who commanded us to love our enemies) “must, must, must, be eradicated.” That is one atheist who not only is a jerk, but a dangerous jerk.

With the above, I could “rest my case” but I will plow further to prove that New Atheists not only want to “protect” children from Bible truths but their statements prove New Atheists are deceptive, dangerous and dishonest. That is obvious when you notice that those atheists who attack me refuse to address my charges but question where I was educated, question my sincerity, and some even question my parentage! Of course, that doesn’t matter. The question is: What is the truth?

Another God Hater wrote, “In short, children have a right not to have their minds addled by nonsense. And we as a society have a duty to protect them from it. So we should no more allow parents to teach their children to believe, for example, in the literal truth of the Bible, or that the planets rule their lives, than we should allow parents to knock their children’s teeth out or lock them in a dungeon.” (Nicholas Humphrey, “What Shall We Tell the Children?” Amnesty Lecture, Oxford, 21st February 1997.)

Daniel Dennett, one of the “Four Horsemen of New Atheism” writes, “The message is clear: those who will not accommodate, who will not temper, who insist on keeping only the purest and wildest strain of their heritage alive, we will be obliged, reluctantly, to cage or disarm, and we will do our best to disable the memes they fight for.” (Daniel Dennett, Darwin’s Dangerous Idea, p. 515.) Someone needs to inform him that “memes” don’t exist except in the imagination of Richard Dawkins and a few of his pathetic disciples.

Richard Dawkins is the leader of the New Atheists and wrote, “We should work to free the children of the world from the religions which, with parental approval, damage minds too young to understand what is happening to them.” (Dawkins Religion’s Real Child Abuse, website.)

In The God Delusion Richard Dawkins claims that teaching children about religion (specifically, the doctrine of hell) is a form of child abuse that scars children for life. Accordingly, Dawkins states, “Priestly groping of child bodies is disgusting. But it may be less harmful in the long run than priestly subversion of child minds.” (Ibid) Clearly he is saying that Bible truth is dangerous, detrimental, and destructive to children. It is my opinion that the rabid blather of New Atheists is destructive to everyone and is as deadly as a noxious fog.

Sam Harris, another of the “Four Horsemen of New Atheism” is not only a rabid hater of Christians and our God but he foams at the mouth more than most: “The link between belief and behavior raises the stakes considerably. Some propositions are so dangerous that it may be ethical to kill people for believing them. This may seem an extraordinary claim, but it merely enunciates an ordinary fact about the world in which we live.” (The End of Faith, P. 52.) Note that Sam, like the others above, suggests that even believing Christian truths qualifies us to be killed! So it’s not only our actions but thoughts that must be punished!

Sam outraged even some liberals and “old atheists” when he suggested a preemptive strike against Muslims! He posits the scenario of a Muslim state with nuclear weapons who are not deterred by the surety of U.S. retaliation, killing millions of Muslims: “In such a situation, the only thing likely to ensure our survival may be a nuclear first strike of our own. Needless to say, this would be an unthinkable crime—as it would kill tens of millions of innocent civilians in a single day—but it may be the only course of action available to us, given what Islamists believe.” (The End of Faith, p. 128.)

I would think that the most liberal media moguls would disavow such irrational, irresponsible, and irreligious attacks upon innocent, religious people but the media are very reluctant to defend religious rights even though the same First Amendment protects them as well as us!

Folk, the barbarians are not at the gates, they are within the gates and have launched a crusade to destroy our faith and remove our children from Christian influence. Not from this family! New Atheists can get all the state or Federal laws passed they want but they will never take my visiting grandchildren no matter how many warrants they have. Not without a literal fight!

America is in deep trouble especially when you realize there is still a fool on every corner, a clown in every public office, and every village has not one, but several idiots plus numerous tyrants, terrorists, thugs, and totalitarians lounging down at the American Angry Atheist Association. They are dangerous, duped, dopey and deluded people who might be helped if brains could be transplanted. Absent that, if they had a New Birth experience with Christ, they might become tolerable–in time.
No, I do not hate any of the New Atheists. I simply accept their declaration of war. Those who criticize my “strong” language are a bunch of panty waists that don’t understand the seriousness of this war or have already capitulated to the enemy or are part of the enemy.

We used to laugh at them; now we are in a life and death struggle with them. Our children are in their sights. So that puts atheists in my sights. Remember, this is a war of their making. After all, there are some things worth fighting for and the First Amendment and my grandchildren are two of those.
