Is America losing faith? Atheism
on the rise but still in the shadows

Telegraph [UK], by Peter Foster

(Video) Blacksburg, Virginia- At first glance, the group of scruffy-looking students could be attending a meeting of any old debating club, but as they begin to speak it soon becomes clear that they all share the same secret. A shy young woman is among the first. She admits she is still a long way from telling her parents the truth about herself. “My closest friends know,” she says, “but where I come from, I only know one other person like me, who was a teacher. I will tell my parents in the end, I can’t now; at least, not until

I don´t think that there are more atheists ... just the same ones who are now more vocal and obnoxious.

Ok, one won´t admit being an atheist until she is financially independent. I suppose that means she is receiving financial support from her parents but u could be wrong. Another works at Liberty Univ. where belief is required for employees so he won´t give his name. I guess being honest is not part of the atheist platform. Yet they claim that atheists are just as good, upstanding people as believers.

They show pictures but claim people won´t give their names. Duh! Do they think people can´t tell who they are in a picture??

Don´t agree with the premise of this article at all. Atheism is not in the closet, it is blatantly displayed throughout our society every day by many Americans.

Some of their concerns are valid. I am not an athiest but neither am I a Christian. When I got my most recent job, one of the insiders told me I should fall to my knees and thank God I got the job. I did not do that, and endured a year long campaign of backstabbing because of it.
In many places, if you don´t at least pretend to be Christian you are at a disadvantage. Most of us understand that and realize it is the price of free thought. A low profile helps too.

Misleading headline. Sad truth is there are far too many "mega-churches" out there preaching the "health & wealth gospel" and not enough properly trained Evangelists and Bible Churches giving the true Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Atheism can only succeed where the gospel is non-existent, either by choice, or by suppression. As witnessed by Communist countries over decades, suppression becomes fertilizer for the Gospel, so no, atheism can never succeed.

Where does a God-less society end up? Mentally crippled miserable sociopaths, no empathy, no sympathy, just self promoting egoists - not the stuff upon which great societies are built.

Couple of thoughts: they belong to a group they refer to as "free thinkers". I´m curious, are they implying that those of us who do believe in a supreme power or God are not free thinkers? What is it they are liberated from?
Then several of them state that they are afraid that their lack belief in God will keep them from attaining employment. That´s not a new concept for those of us who do believe. Trust me, as a Catholic, I have experienced bigotry, rejection, and lots of truly poor jokes and that was from professors at my university, you know, that place where free thinking is supposedly welcome.
If you truly believe that there is nothing to believe and your feel righteous in those beliefs. embrace them and take your lumps, oh, and welcome to the party pals.

FTA “But even if that is not the case, atheists and agnostics will increasingly enter politics and have a larger voice in this country. An atheist president is then not an impossibility.”

It is telling that Barney Frank came out as gay decades ago, but waited until he was safely out of congress to ´come out´ as an atheist.

If you have ever doubted God´s mercy on earth just consider the self indulgent posture of atheism. There will be a day of reckoning and all who reject God´s gift of salvation will stand before God and explain their theories, feelings and rationalizations. Good luck with that.

Do any of you here think it is a bit odd that Atheists have to have support groups or meetings or any kind of established organizations? Do they need to support groups to constantly convince one another that something does not exist??

Quickest way to shut an atheist up when they start arguing, is to ask them one simple thing; If you don´t believe in God, why are you wasting so much time an energy trying to prove the non-existence of something you don´t even believe exists´ in the first place? Are you just trying to convince yourself? I don´t believe in the existence of little fairies or gnomes, and yet you don´t see me running around picking arguments to prove they don´t exist, or forming support groups and organizations just to prove a non-existent thing. It´s absurd.

Maybe they are just a bunch of disgruntled losers who got one too many atomic wedgies in school. Their only known outlet for revenge on the world is to irritate people or pick on things they assume to be sacred to others.

I was an unbeliever for years. No one questioned me about my faith. The only time someone inquired of my beliefs was when a coworker asked if I´d like to say the blessing over our lunch. I said that I did not pray. She thought that over for a couple of seconds and then said that she respected my honesty. I was never shunned or shamed or backstabbed. When you meet someone whose life has been changed by God, they aren´t looking to condemn you for your beliefs because most likely they held the same views once upon a time.

When I was chosen by God, when I came to know Him, my life changed overnight. It was like getting body slammed except it was my spirit that was awakened. That´s the best way to describe it.

These young folks might be worried about getting judged by those who don´t know Him, but they would never have to fear about getting judged by those who have had a conversion experience. I feel for those who have not met Him and I fear for them as well - their eternal future, I fear where they will end up. So I pray for them and their salvation. That´s what my friend did for me. It is the work of the Spirit to change hearts. All I have to do is pray and love people.

What I hate with a passion is the Prince of Darkness in this world and those who push his agenda.

Ok , so they don´t believe in God.

Why do they need a support group for that? I don´t believe in aliens, but I don´t look for others that don´t believe to have my little rap session.

Want to know the real reason? I´ll bet a dollar to a doughnut that every one of these people have either had something terrible happen in their life and they don´t have the moral fiber to accept it and move on, or they want someone else to blame their problems on...like "Big Religion". They are intellectual midgets, so they need a "boogie man", or a scary monster to serve as an anchor in their lives.

They could never, EVER consider that for most things in life, they can blame themselves over their own choices. That would mean responsibility. Notice how so many atheists are young punks who have never been on their own?

I always say, why are atheists so angry? According to them, nothing matters, we are here like a match that then gets snuffed out and we are wormfood. So if nothing matters, why are they trying to change minds and change the world? It´s meaningless, so why don´t they just smile, and enjoy their hedonistic lifestyle?

Me thinks there are things going on in atheists´ minds that have nothing to do with God, and more to do with psychosis.

U.S. military assets in the Black Sea are on high alert amid reports Ukraine troops traded gunfire Tuesday with pro-Russian militants. A journalist with Associated Press reported intense gunfire at an airport in eastern Ukraine after the government sent in army troops to retake control from militiamen loyal to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The mayor of Kramatorsk told the Associated Press that Ukrainian troops have now occupied the military airport and are blocking its entrance. The action comes a day after the revelation a Russian fighter jetted buzzed a U.S.S. destroyer multiple times over the Black Sea.

House Democrats are rolling out a new strategy to target 30 House Republicans on immigration reform during the two-week congressional recess, marking a last-ditch effort to force GOP action on a legislative overhaul. The new pressure tactic includes a memo distributed to those 30 districts held by Republicans who have expressed public support for some sort of immigration reform, many of them backing a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants in the United States. Democrats hope the document — which highlights statements made by those Republicans in favor of reform, as well as data showing the district-specific economic

Is Scott Walker on his way to

Scott Walker has a 16 point lead (56-40) among likely voters in his race for governor, according to a poll from Wisconsin Public Radio/St. Norbert’s. Among registered voters, his lead is essentially the same (55-40). The survey was conducted between March 24 and April 3. A Marquette University survey conducted between March 20-23 also showed Walker with a nice, though smaller, lead. In that poll, Walker outdistanced Democrat Mary Burke 48-41. Revealingly, Walker fares well in an electorate that does not seem particularly conservative and that, if anything, appears to be slightly to the left of American voters in general.

This is deeply disturbing, and anyone—or any university—who values ethics should be concerned. Why is this? Because he was part of the failed Obama administration? Because he is a Democrat and we should hate Democrats? No. This is not an issue of partisanship.

When Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Steve Israel (N.Y.) was asked Sunday whether he thinks his Republican colleagues are racist, he responded with a frankness that is rare in politics and even less common when it comes to sensitive issues like race. "Not all of them, no, of course not," Israel said on CNN´s "State of the Union." "But to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism. And that´s unfortunate." Israel´s not the only high-ranking Democrat to advance some version of that argument recently.

In 2009, in the earliest weeks of President Barack Obama‘s administration, the White House made the controversial decision to take the unprecedented step of moving the Census Bureau from control of the commerce secretary over to the White House ahead of the decennial 2010 census. Conservatives sounded alarm bells. “It takes something that is supposedly apolitical like the census, and gives it to a guy who is infamously political,” said Rep. Rob Bishop (R-UT) of then White House Chief of Staff Rham Emanuel. “Requiring the Census director to report directly to White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel is a

Just in time for tax deadline day, a new Gallup poll finds that a majority of Americans -- 52 percent -- say they pay too much federal income tax, while 42 percent say they amount they pay is "about right." Three percent said their federal taxes are "too low." Gallup says the percentage who say their taxes are "too high" has hovered around 50 percent since 2003, although the current 52 percent is up from the 46 percent who said "too high" two years ago. While a slim majority of Americans say their federal tax burden is too high, roughly the

He’s not “unknown”, and he didn’t just pop up on the horizon. The alleged killer of three at the Overland Park (Kansas) Jewish Community Center and a nearby Jewish retirement home didn’t just “appear out of nowhere”; he’s a man who has been in the public eye before, right here in the Kansas City area and elsewhere, along with his foaming-at-the-mouth anti-Jewish and white supremacist views. The suspect, identified as Frazier Glenn Cross of Aurora, Missouri, is also known as Frazier Glenn Miller or simply Glenn Miller. As Glenn Miller, he ran for the U.S. Senate from Missouri in 2010.

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast.

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports.
