Atheists Assault on Christianity?

Christians around the world, but particularly in America, are in grave danger, according to Ken Ham of Answers (Nowhere) in Genesis. How so? Are churches being ransacked and razed to the ground? Are there mass bible burnings? Are Christians being rounded up, tattooed with a fish on their foreheads, and herded into vast labour camps?

Well, no. But atheists in America have launched a blistering, non-lethal poster citing the Jesus story as a myth, just like the Santa Claus myth. So…

Atheism - An Unashamed Force For Good

http://www.christianvoice.org.uk/index.php/2012dec12cos/

Stephen Green of Christian Voice asks, in essence, what atheists have done to improve the lot of ordinary people. He cites people like William Wilberforce, Thomas Barnado and Lord Shaftsbury as examples of Christian philanthropists, people who have had a major impact on changing the world. I take nothing away from these people or their achievements,…

When you know you're losing, cheat

Stephen Green is the notorious leader of a shabby bunch of Christian flakes called Christian Voice. For a while I was able to comment on his blog, but then he started to get fed up of me taking umbrage at his nasty, bigoted stance on homosexuals and I find myself blocked.

The fact is, like others of his kind (i.e. evangelical Christians, see also Answers in Genesis), Mr Green hates being called out for the horrible little Hitler that he is. Deep down he knows what he is,…
