George Will: ‘I’m an
amiable, low voltage atheist’

Daily Caller, by Jamie Weintein

Original Article

Posted By:trapper, 5/4/2014 7:29:53 PM

Legendary conservative columnist George Will says he is an atheist. Will explained his religious views — or lack thereof — during an extensive interview with The Daily Caller on politics, culture and his new book, “A Nice Little Place on the North Side: Wrigley Field at One Hundred.” TheDC will be featuring segments from the interview over the next several weeks. “I am not religious at all,” Will interjected, when The Daily Caller said it heard he wasn’t particularly religious. TheDC brought up its previous interview Charles Krauthammer, in which the other conservative Washington Post columnist said, “I don’t believe

Will and Dr. Krauthammer, both atheists.

I like what Jefferson said (roughly quoted):
"Speak not of a man´s religion. It is known but to himself and his god alone. If his life has been a good one, and dutiful to society, then the religion that has governed it cannot have been a bad one."

Thank you Screwgun. Admitting atheism on this board is a brave act. There is a lot of hate on here directed towards atheists. I too am an atheist. I generally don´t speak of it, considering it my business. I do feel though that it is important for everyone to know that there are atheists among us and that we are decent, hard-working, happily married, family raising citizen. I have nothing to prove, but I would like to live a life that is an example that a good life can be lived without god.

I think of the rich man and Lazarus when I hear someone say they don´t believe in God.

The rich man wanted his five brothers to be told to change their lives so they wouldn´t come and be with him in the place of torments.

God is loving and long-suffering, but there is an appointed time when opportunity to believe and obey ceases.
Heartbreaking.

As a pastor who once was an agnostic- or a really devoted skeptic-- I do not dislike atheists. I too was once in spiritual darkness-- until the light of Christ apprehended me.

I believe that when one truly investigates the claims of Christ in the Bible through history, archeology, prophecy and extra-biblical truth--they can at least admit that Jesus was not only historically true-- but had the most profound impact on the world as we know it.

The atheist simply has not met the living Christ. He or she cannot be hated or disliked for not coming to a knowledge of God-- for we who are Christians are here only because of GRACE-- not our own doing.

Being a Cub fan will do that to you. I guess George and Charles consider themselves to be too enlightened to believe in God. It does explain why they lean liberal on social issues.

In the America that I was brought up in, the America that I was taught to love and live in, it is less important to me to try and change an atheist´s mind than it is to find the common ground of freedom. As long as the atheist and I agree to fight for and protect the Constitution that governs this land, and honor those who have died to protect it before us, than what he believes in his heart is a matter that I am willing to let go and Let God.

And I would hope that MY actions...ACTIONS...show my faith.

Being an atheist means you believe there is no God. Being an agnostic means you aren’t certain one way or the other. If you reflect at all on the wonder and implausibility of life and environment, it seems claiming to be “agnostic” is a better bet. After all, could you make a cell, or an organism, or the infinity of impossibilities surrounding us, all against the law of entropy.
I do believe that some are born skeptical, some with certainty. God gave us free will.

I´ve never had much love for Will or Krauthammer, but I sure don´t hold their non-belief against them. The activist atheists trying to prevent the freedom to practice faith are another matter. I have atheist relatives and friends of the low voltage type. No big deal. I don´t have all the answers, but amiably believe God does.

#5 - do not use that word too lightly. In this day many do.

I would lay odds that 99% of Christian LDotters would, if questioned, profess no hatred of atheists and have friends who profess no faith.

What provokes a strong reaction on these boards is the assault of atheist activists on Christians - attempting to violate our rights and drive us from the public square.

Dismissing athiests for a moment...there is a difference between being religious and being spiritual. Religious people go to church, quote scripture and participate in the rituals. For many it is out of a feeling of obligation or tradition, or a fear of eternal damnation. Most of what they do and believe is based on faith in the legitimacy of someone else´s experiences. Some are truly spiritual. Most I have met are not.
You do not have to be religious to be spiritual. Spiritual people find their own path to God. They have their own first hand religious experiences and base their understanding on those.
I have been condemned to Hell or shunned by more Christians than I can count, yet God continues to heap blessings on me all the time. Who do I believe? God or His followers?

#5, no one here hates you because of what you don´t believe. That´s your problem.

But I´ll tell you what does irritate me. People who throw the word "bravery" around every time someone does something perhaps unpopular.

Not believing in God is not "brave". Nor is having an abortion, and standing up for "women´s health", meaning abortion. Nor is admitting you are gay.

Being brave and having courage is demonstrated every day by real heroes. Firemen running INTO burning structures, doctors helping people with dangerous viruses without fully understanding them, police officers moving into a bank robbery, a child fighting back against a predator, a woman refusing to be a victim of rape and arming herself even against the local laws, a teacher working in a rough school so that she can really reach the disadvantaged.

Those are people showing bravery and courage.

Not someone that chooses not to believe in God and then blathers on about it.

What I believe is between me and my G-d. I am not out converting anyone.

That being sad, I am against Islam. When someone crosses the line to change my beliefs, space, and country, there is a problem.

George Will, proclaiming his atheism, reminds me of a tiny flea standing by the foot of a massive elephant, announcing to the world, "I don´t believe there´s such a thing as an elephant. How foolish!" The wise elephant could smash the flea with only the slightest movement of his foot, but he lets the flea keep making a fool of himself, knowing someday the flea will see himself as others see him, pathetic and sad.

#10 got me thinking. George Will is a passionate supporter of the Cubs. Given the record of the Cubs, perhaps it´s understandable he´s lost his faith. Think of all those prayers, over all those years, and...nothing. or very little, anyway. No wonder he is an atheist.

Those of us who live in the St. Louis region have no such problem. We have faith because we knowGod Iis a Cardinals fan.

To out myself, I’m agnostic. George Will didn’t “proclaim” his belief, he answered a question. Did you want him to lie? He continued, as most atheists and agnostics will. to speak kindly of those with faith. Most of us in the shadows possess as much disgust for the militant atheists as the faithful do, and we don’t care for the hypocrites that claim belief but won’t act accordingly.

Those of us here whose hearts have not felt the grace of God’s presence are defenders of the basic teaching of Jesus because we believe they are right. But in the honesty of our hearts, we cannot state that we believe if we don’t. On moral issues, we are your comrades in arms and we fight to allow God in our schools, one nation under God, and In God We Trust. In other words, we recognize that a true Christian spirit is a righteous one, and lacking faith is not a choice.

The reluctance to simply state our beliefs on this site is because some here can be judgmental, others can’t believe that we think with the same moral compass as they do, and finally, it just isn’t necessary. I have witnessed and at times participated in heated debates on this site, but not once about anyone quoting scripture. We vastly prefer the company we find here to that of the truly godless left.

If God chooses to reveal Himself to me, He will have Himself a dedicated warrior. Until that time I will quote his Son, “Oh Lord, why have You forsaken me?” If I end up standing before Him, it will be with an honest heart. And that’s between Him and me.

I am always amused that atheists consider themselves intellectually superior. But consider their belief. Everything just "happened." Mix air and water, dirt and time and human beings can think, wake and sleep, gorgeous birds and flowers flourish. Suuuure. And just where did the air and water come from? Who provided the dirt? Take something simple, like a mutt puppy and give it to an atheist, and say, "make one." You can take feather samples, and blood analyses, but you can´t use any part of this or any other mutt puppies. Make it breathe. Go ahead. Surely you and your brilliance can perform this simple chore.

If you do not believe in God, what do you believe in?

Do you believe in yourself?

Do you believe in your family and friends?

Do you believe in government, your job, or society?

Do you believe in wealth?

None of that measures up, and that is why people believe in a God. Exactly what God a person believes in is a topic for another discussion.

As for Will and Krauthammer, what they think is secondary since a person is suppose to make their own choices. Will and Krauthammer can believe whatever they please as long as they are not hurting anyone, IMHO.

I personally choose to believe in a Christian God.

There are 31 posts above, not a single one is anti-religion, but several are judgmental of non believers just as I posted earlier. There are no examples to back up the claim that non believers think they’re superior to anyone, yet we’re painted with a broad brush because of some vocal idiots. The Christian Faith has a wide range of denominations as do the atheists and agnostics. While there is no outright hate in the posts, several have shown distain and belittlement to those lacking in your faith. If I remember correctly, judgment belongs to Him alone.

This site is populated by conservatives and the subjects are primarily about politics. If religion were the litmus test for conservatism, the movement would lose a substantial number of the ranks, and we would willingly bow out if that is the consensus here. Let’s make a deal, we won’t evaluate you by the Westboro Baptist Church members, if you don’t throw us in with the militant atheists.

How to convert an atheist to a skeptic:

"Do you know everything?" (honest answer - "No")

"Is it possible that God exists outside your limited knowledge?" (honest answer - "Yes, but you can´t know for certain.")

"You realize that you just contradicted yourself..."

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper today issued the following statement about the situation in Israel: The indiscriminate rocket attacks from Gaza on Israel are terrorist acts, for which there is no justification. It is evident that Hamas is deliberately using human shields to further terror in the region. Failure by the international community to condemn these reprehensible actions would encourage these terrorists to continue their appalling actions. Canada calls on its allies and partners to recognize that these terrorist acts are unacceptable and that solidarity with Israel is the best way of stopping the conflict. Canada is unequivocally

Last July, the mayoral election for the state’s fourth largest city, Hattiesburg, was nullified after the losing candidate showed that the 37-vote margin of victory was smaller than the pool of suspect absentee

Misspelling on Medill Diploma

Some graduates of Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism were handed a parting reminder of the school’s notorious “Medill F” when they received their diplomas over the weekend. About 30 of the more than 250 diplomas that were given out at Saturday’s two graduation ceremonies had a spelling error, a school official confirmed to the Tribune on Sunday. The error struck some students as ironic, given the school’s tradition, known as the "Medill F," of giving a failing grade to an assignment with a factual error such as a misspelling.

New Jersey To Ban .22 Rifles?

New Jersey’s legislature has enacted a gun control measure that would ban the most common .22 rifles that have been in use for generations. The Truth About Guns, via InstaPundit, has the story: The gun ban that has gone to New Jersey Governor Christie for signature has been described as a “gun magazine restriction“, but it bans numerous common sport and hunting rifles. The ban has no exemption for rifles with fixed magazines, including most common .22 rimfire rifles that are used for sport and small game hunting…and almost never used in crimes.

They had a dream. For almost a hundred years now, the famed academic-artistic-and-punditry industrial complex has dreamed of a government run by their kind of people (i.e., nature’s noblemen), whose intelligence, wit, and refined sensibilities would bring us a heaven on earth. Their keen intellects would cut through the clutter as mere mortals’ couldn’t. They would lift up the wretched, oppressed by cruel forces. Above all, they would counter the greed of the merchants, the limited views of the business community, and the ignorance of the conformist and dim middle class.

Why Westernized Muslims

Posted By: trapper- 4/17/2014 2:00:22 PM     Post Reply
A new Danish statistical study finds that “Muslims [are] 218 percent more criminal in second generation than first.” While some of these crimes are clearly related to Islam – such as attacks on Muslim apostates to Christianity – others, such as rampant theft against non-Muslims, would appear banal, until one realizes that even robbery and plunder are justified by Islamic doctrine – as one U.K. Muslim cleric once clearly said. The interesting question here is why second-generation Muslims, who are presumably more Westernized than their Muslim parents, are also more “radical.”

In 2011 Barack Obama led an allied military intervention in Libya without consulting the US Congress. Last August, after the sarin attack on the Damascus suburb of Ghouta, he was ready to launch an allied air strike, this time to punish the Syrian government for allegedly crossing the ‘red line’ he had set in 2012 on the use of chemical weapons.? Then with less than two days to go before the planned strike, he announced that he would seek congressional approval for the intervention. The strike was postponed as Congress prepared for hearings, and subsequently cancelled when Obama accepted Assad’s

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security. The

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

Contrary to what those who defend the right to own high-powered assault rifles believe, not all guns are created equal. Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country's most dangerous. School Shootings: Widely Reported Tragedies Since 2000 - Using firearm trace data from the ATF, as well as FBI homicide records, we determined the types of guns most often recovered from crime scenes and/or used in murders.

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

The headline in the Washington Post on June 4 was clear: Rove-backed American Crossroads won’t get involved in Cochran runoff Said the Post story the day after Tea Party favorite Chris McDaniel had defeated six-term Mississippi GOP Senator Thad Cochran in the first round of the state’s GOP primary: American Crossroads, a GOP establishment organization, has decided to shift its political focus almost entirely to the general election and will not be spending money in the likely runoff election to decide the Mississippi Senate nomination that was virtually deadlocked after Tuesday night.

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country. “As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.” Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act. “We must take into account not only the

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
