Freedom From Religion Foundation Upset That Their Insulting Sign Was “Violently Mangled”

The Freedom From Religion Foundation is one of the more extreme Left wing religion hating groups. To use Leftist terminology, they are a hate group. They constantly butt in around the country regarding religious belief. These busybodies are Offended, so the rights of other people have to be infringed. And, like most leftist groups, instead of being respectful in their disagreement, they are insulting, rude, denigrating, divisive, and deranged

(The Blaze) An anti-Easter sign posted in the Wisconsin state Capitol by atheist activists was “violently mangled” and “mutilated,” according to the organization that displayed it.

“Nobody died for our sins. Jesus Christ is a myth,” read the sign that was posted Monday by the Freedom From Religion Foundation.

According to the Wisconsin-based group, a “fanatic” vandalized the poster Wednesday, though little information is known about the culprit.

“A man wrested [the] foamboard sign, which was securely taped to an easel, and violently mangled it in front of passersby,” a statement on the Freedom From Religion Foundation’s website said. “Capitol security was quickly summoned and gave chase, but the vandal got away.”

They put the sign back up in order to generate sympathy. While I do not condone the destruction of the sign, it’s simply a sign, and an insulting one at that. The FFRF has been destroying the ability of people of faith (meaning Christians and Jews, because the FFRF never seems to go after Muslims. Probably too scared to cross the “Religion of Peace”) to practice their religion in public, to put up any displays, etc. They are essentially attempting to do away with all religion in public view. These same anti-religion bigots whined to the Sun Prairie, Wis utility commission over the shutting of office for Good Friday, calling it “illegal”.

Christians look to celebrate Good Friday and Easter in a peaceful, respectful manner. These atheist groups like the FFRF look to force their views in a disrespectful, insulting manner. They are attempting the same thing in Chicago’s Daley Plaza

(Mediaite) On the other side of the argument was Faith and Freedom Foundation Deputy National Field Director Virginia Galloway, who said she thought it was “kind of sad” that during this week of religious celebration “we are attacked and denigrated.” She said, “They certainly have a right, a constitutional right to express their opinions and many good people have fought and died for that right for them as well as us, and I appreciate that.”

“But at the same time, it just seems kind of without class, kind of like the Westboro crowd and the things that they did,” Galloway continued, evoking the Christian protest group best known for picketing funerals with signs that say things like “God hates fags.” She added, “Sure, maybe they had a right to do it, but it just seems very wrong.”

It’s an apt comparison: both groups are heavily intolerant and nasty. The FFRF put up a nasty signed to elicit a response, and when they got one, they complain.

On a related note, I would highly recommend reading Thy Kingdom Fall by Austin Dragon, a scifi/political thriller based on the intentional destruction of religion around the world. It dovetails nicely into what these hardcore anti-religion hate groups are attempting to do.

    75% of Americans are Christian. In addition, Federal, State and Local governments subsidize Christian institutions with at least $80 billion EVERY year, and you claim that Christians are victims?? Victims of what? Occasional criticism?

    Isn’t $80 billion of goodies a year support enough? Why do you also demand that governments further support and recognize your religion by erecting totems for you on government properties?

    You deliberately conflate “government support of a religion” with the “practice (of) their religion in public”. The FFRF supports the practice of religion in public, just not by governments. No one interferes with Easter egg hunts, Easter bunnies, Easter bonnets, Santa Claus, Xmas trees, yule logs, or other deeply held, solemn symbols of Christianity – but they shouldn’t be at government expense or seen to be supported by government.

    In response to provocative acts of Christian activists, the FFRF put up a sign. The Christian activists committed a violent, illegal act – and you label the FFRF as a hate group. The FFRF peaceably pursues legal remedies in courtrooms, your Christian terrorists commit violent acts against them. And you claim you’re the victim.

    Just obey the laws, please. Or change the laws through legal means. But please don’t justify the violence.

    Maybe we can make your religion the official US religion, but only after you prove to 100% certainty that your gods exist and are the only true gods. Right now the existence of your gods is a mere hypothesis, and not falsifiable at that. None of your predictions are occurring now, but will occur sometime in the future.

    Color me skeptical … too many (every one?) of these reputed attacks that are reported on groups like these turn out to have been done on by themselves for sympathy. [nooses hung by people of color, obamites damaging their own cars, posters torn off of liberal professors doors, etc)

    Any video of the alleged attack? After all, the WI capital is under 24 hour surveillance (we know this since the video of the attacks on conservative legislators was reported “lost” a year or two ago).

    Where were the hordes of atheists that are always present at these mockings?

    Who was the alleged “passerby”?

    from the FFRF:

    FFRF had sought and received a permit to display its message,… in response to “Concerned Women for America’s” Easter display, which includes a cross on a table with religious and antiabortion literature and misinformation about birth control.

    FFRF has made an open records request for a copy of surveillance tapes.

    “This crime, seeking to suppress dissent, is a lesson in the danger of injecting religion into the seat of state government,” Gaylor added. “We strongly object to CWA placing a cross in the rotunda — a symbol of the dominant religion and increasingly a symbol of political intimidation today. But if religious symbols and imagery are permitted, then there must be room for dissent.”

    Interesting that the group is called Freedom from Religion when the constitution calls for Freedom of Religion.

  6. Jeffery says:

    Our Constitution allows organizations to pick their own names.

    Here’s the text of the 1st Amendment:

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    “Our constitution allows organizations to pick their own names.” Thanks for the obvious, J, but I never said otherwise. I said it’s interesting.
