WEB Notes: This is absolute blasphemy. This atheist group claims “the Bible is a violent, racist book that has inspired violent, racist organizations“. These people are a bunch of idiots, absolute idiots. Call it what it is, we do not play politically correct games on this site. If you listen to a fool you are a bigger fool than they are. ‘But Brandon Christians should not talk that way.‘ If that is what you are thinking you are just too sugar sweet for our Father to use. You know what happens to snow flakes? They melt when the sun comes out a bit. Are you going to melt before your enemies or grow a back bone? Grow a back bone already and stand up for your Father not some man. The Kentucky Governor is absolutely correct and should be applauded here…
Do not become over worked up over these types of things, sometimes we even need to laugh at them. Yet we certainly need to call them out for what they are. Letting them slide one by one after another is not acceptable.
Whether you realize it or not this type of news has a major psychological impact on people and projects Christianity in a negative light and makes it that much easier for the next wave of assault.
We all need to contribute in our own way to make it known this is a bunch of nonsense and should be rejected.
Gov. Matt Bevin appeared on the Tom Roten Morning Show on Aug. 15, where he discussed the public unrest in Charlottesville, Virginia, as well as a recent bill he signed dubbed as the “Bible Literacy Bill.”
“When you go back a couple of hundred years, in most instances the only textbooks that were in our public schools were the Bible,” he said. “And so to that end to pretend, again, to scrub history and pretend that that wasn’t reality, I think is a dangerous precedent.”
“And it’s interesting, the more we’ve removed any sense of spiritual obligation or moral higher authority or absolute right and wrong, the more we’ve removed things that are biblically taught from society, the more we’ve seen the kind of mayhem that we were just discussing,” Bevin stated.
However, the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) soon fired off a letter to Bevin to take issue with his words, which they characterized as being “inflammatory.” It asserted that the Bible is rather a “violent, racist book” that was used to justify slavery in American history.
“The Bible is a violent, racist book that has inspired violent, racist organizations,” wrote Co-Presidents Dan Barker and Annie Laurie Gaylor. “Ironically, the Bible that you want to unconstitutionally interject in public schools encourages violence and racism. Inculcating more American children in the ways of the Bible would not have prevented Charlottesville.”
