The Blair Witch Project: Former Prime Minister Warns of Atheists Among Us

Published 1, October 9, 2009 Bizarre , International , Media , Politics , Religion , Society 75 Comments

Former Prime Minister Tony Blair used a speech at Georgetown University to warn of the threat against the West that is growing at alarming rate. No, he wasn’t talking about terrorism, the recession, or even Swine Flu. He was talking about atheists and the menace they present to the world. Not since leaders tackled the dangers of witches in our midst has a politician sounded such an alarm. This politician happens to be the leading contender for the first “president of Europe.”

Blair sounded the alarm for all God-fearing citizens to be on the look out for atheists who he seems to portray as an equal threat as terrorists. He warned that “[w]e face an aggressive secular attack from without. We face the threat of extremism from within.” He called on religious people to unite against atheists who offer “no hope” and threaten the demise of the West. How dangerous? Just read this incredible line: “Those who scorn God and those who do violence in God’s name, both represent views of religion. But both offer no hope for faith in the twenty first century.”

“[A]n aggressive secular attack from without”? I do not recall many atheists or agnostics driving car bombs into markets or invading nations to fight for the “one and true [lack of] faith.”

Could you imagine if Blair singled out a faith for such analogies to terrorism? There are millions of atheists around the world who simply do not believe in God. Yet you have one of the world’s leaders calling for a united campaign against them and calling their beliefs a danger to mankind.

The only question is whether Blair will be stopping in Albuquerque to join City Councilor Don Harris at the front lines against the atheist hoard, here.

[Bl.] A sensible comment.

Mr. Blair’s faith does face an “aggressive secular attack.” An attack that uses rational arguments as its weapon. If Mr. Blair finds rational arguments a threat to his faith, the problem, dear Tony, is not the atheists."

Funny if a bit disconcerting... but from his point of view he has a point, as reason and actual free-thinking would end their grip on the world... As Penn and Teller said," read the Bible, we need more Atheists."

[Blunderov] Robert Crumb has been reading his bible and has drawn some lovely pictures of what he found there. (This picture illustrates one of the Hermit's favourite bible stories) Not everyone is pleased with his efforts though.

Crumb turns sweet, tender, beautiful story of incest into something tawdry

Ed Vitagliano
Editor, AFA Journal
American Family Association

Dear Mr. Vitagliano

Why haven't you commented on R. Crumb's Genesis? I saw a few of the illustrations for the first time last night, and I'm absolutely disgusted. Surely, you had the same reaction.

There is so much to hate about this book, I don't know where to begin. I suppose one could start with the fact that Crumb neglected to include a single dinosaur in his Garden of Eden. But I guess that's a comparatively little thing, really; more an example of bias than outright blasphemy.

Far worse is his depiction of Adam and Eve at the moment they first "knew" each other. Crumb has Adam taking Eve from behind as if she were some prized ewe or valued donkey rather than the mother of all mankind. That's just wrong--they call it "doggy-style" for a reason, dammit. If the missionary position was good enough for Jesus Pope Benedict XVI Ted Haggard Chuck Norris, it's good enough for Adam.

But that's nothing compared to the violence Crumb committed against Genesis chapter 19. Here, he took one of the Bible's most beautifully heart-touching stories of family togetherness, Lot's drunken night of incestuous bliss, and illustrated it with tawdry scenes of animal lust. In Gen. 19:32-33 Crumb turns the panel in which Lot is depicted making sweet procreative love with his daughter into the most degenerate kind of pornography possible by adding the ugliness of an erect nipple.

That nipple ruined it for me. It transformed a sweet, touching scriptural story of a drunken family orgy into an evilly potent catalyst for self abuse--so potent in fact, it is impossible to resist peeling one, or two, or even a dozen, off. I can bear witness to that. My little soldier is as raw as a slab of week old liver.

Heterosexually yours,

Gen. JC Christian, patriot

Religulus addresses the issue of having "faith fuelled" leaders at around 1:32. Here is an excerpt (my transcription).

Megiddo, Israel

[Bill Maher] The irony of religion is that because of its power to divert man to destructive courses the world actually could come to an end.

Senator's Office

[Bill Maher] At lot of people in this country believe in end times, there will be this great reckoning, the rapture. Do you believe that?

[US Senator] I do

Bible, Revelations 1:3 "... the time is near..."
Bible, Revelations 16:16 and ... the place ... is called Armageddon"
Qur'an, Surah 3:151 "Soon we cast terror into the hearts of the unbelievers."

Senator's Office

[Bill Maher] But if you believe that the world is going to come to an end and perhaps any day now does it not drain one's motivation to improve life on Earth while we are here?

Qur'an, Surah 55:26 "All that is on Earth will perish"
Bible, Revelations 6:12 "There was a great earthquake ... the sun turned black ... the whole moon turned blood red and the stars in the sky fell to Earth."

Senator's Office

[Bill Maher] The plain fact is religion must die for mankind to live.

Megiddo, Israel

[Bill Maher] The hour is getting very late to be able to indulge in having key decisions made by religious people. By irrationalists. By those who would steer the ship of state, not by a compass, but by the equivalent of reading the entrails of a chicken. George Bush prayed a lot about Iraq, but he didn't learn a lot about it.

Interview with member of the great unwashed

[Interviewee] I don't know as much about politics, but I will vote for President Bush because of his faith.

[Bill Maher] Faith means making a virtue out of not thinking. It's nothing to brag about. And those who preach faith and enable and elevate it are intellectual slave holders.

[Bill Maher] Keeping mankind in a bondage to fantasy and nonsense that has spawned and justified so much lunacy and destruction. Religion is dangerous because it allows human beings who don't have all the answers to think that they do. Most people would think it's wonderful when someone says, "I'm willing lord, I'll do whatever you want me to do", except that since there are no gods actually talking to us, that void is filled in by people with their own corruptions and limitations and agendas.

Interview shot

[Interviewee] "It is going to happen, and I'm not saying necessarily nuclear. The lord didn't say nuclear but I do believe it will be something like that"

...

Hadith Sahih Muslim, 41:6903The last hour will not come unless there is much bloodshed.

Interview with a Christian believer

[Bill Maher] So you think Jesus will end this Earth at some point, maybe in your lifetime?

[Interviewee] One always hopes.

[Bill Maher] Right.

[Interviewee] This is a sign and that is a sign...

[Bill Maher] But I mean if a nuclear bomb went off and it seemed like that was exactly what it had said, balls of fire or something, you wouldn't look on that as necessarily a bad thing?

[Interviewee] I know I'll be with god.

[Bill Maher] This is why rational people, anti religionists, must end their timidity and come out of the closet and assert themselves. And those who consider themselves only "moderately religious" really need to look in the mirror and realize that the solace and comfort that religion brings you, actually comes at a terrible price.
....

[Bill Maher] If you belonged to a political party or a social club that was tied to as much bigotry, misogyny, homophobia, violence and sheer ignorance as religion is, you'd resign in protest. To do otherwise is to be an enabler. A Mafia wife. With the true devils of extremism that draw their legitimacy from the billions of their fellow travellers. If the world does come to an end, here or wherever, or it lives through into the future, decimated by the effects of a religious inspired nuclear terrorism, let us remember what the real problem was. That we learned how to precipitate mass death before we got past our neurological disorder of wishing for it. That's it. Grow up or die.

[Hermit] It appears that Bill Maher sees the world rather more clearly than "The British B." Not that that is difficult or anything.

[Hermit] P.S. The General appears to have missed the point that the babble claims that "Jesus" said that, "only Lot was righteous" and thus if a Christian seeks to be "righteous", he has not only to sleep with his daughters, but also to impregnate them or he will never be "righteous". This may go some way to explaining why the highest rates of incest today occur in the Bible Belt. Even if the General isn't prepared to do his "righteous duty", he really should advocate that all Christian fathers do their biblically prescribed duty and if they won't, at least to send their daughters out to somebody who will impregnate them on their father's behalf.

With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion. - Steven Weinberg, 1999

I love that movie . Growing up as I did in the hills of W.V. as a part of an extremely religious (free-will baptist) and being raised to become a minister, my decision to practice Asatru caused a virtual exile from my family except for my mother and now as an atheist, well it is a bit better and worse as my aunt says,"at least you aren't a devil worshiper anymore." Funny I wonder what she would say if she found out that my original source of atheist thought was the Church of Satan, who are strict materialistic atheists...
