The national hate group Freedom From Religion Foundation has successfully bullied Orange County, Florida, schools and may be planning to distribute a pamphlet depicting a cartoon Bible raping a woman, along with other anti-Christian materials, to children.
The planned distribution is the result of a lawsuit — naturally — filed by the FFRF against Orange County School District on behalf of some local atheist who complained that a Christian group was allowed to set up a table with Bibles, which the students were free to take but not required to do so.
According to FFRF’s website, its lawsuit last year was dismissed by a judge because “the district has agreed to let FFRF distribute all of the literature it had previously prohibited,” which would apparently include the aforementioned pamphlet, titled “An X-Rated Book: Sex & Obscenity in the Bible.”
The pamphlet features a cartoon Bible with naked, hairy arms and legs, and a lurid, drooling face. The caricature is shown holding a woman by her shoulder and sticking one hand up the woman’s skirt as she clearly struggles to get away.
While FFRF says the district agreed to allow “all” its so-called literature, the school associate general counsel John C. Palmerini has issued a memo to the district’s principals, superintendent, school board and administrators that lists only seven pamphlets that may be distributed, based on the court’s actual ruling. The “X-Rated Book” pamphlet is not on the list.
The court ruled, in part, “Indeed, Defendant may lawfully prohibit outside groups from distributing materials that are not appropriate for distribution in a school setting with the aim of controlling student conduct in the schools. This includes dissemination of content that is sexually explicit, indecent, lewd, or offensive if such would undermine the school’s basic educational mission.”
So it’s unclear whether the “X-Rated Book” pamphlet will be distributed, but there are several anti-Christian tracts the FFRF has said it does plan to distribute, including one that “argues that Jesus did not promote equality and social justice, was not compassionate, was not reliable and was not a good example”; others that “assert that God is hateful, arrogant, sexist and cruel”; and one banned because “the claim that Jesus was not crucified or resurrected is age inappropriate for the maturity levels of many of the students in high school.”
The FFRF defends the “X-Rated Book” pamphlet, saying the Bible is more offensive.
FFRF Legal Council Andrew Seidel explained to CNS News: “I think if you look at the content of that brochure and what is actually in the Bible, and some of the things that are in the Bible in terms of sex and compare that to the cover, the cover is pretty tame compared to anything that is in the Bible. I think the bottom line is, you can’t consider any of our materials obscene when compared to the Bible.”
Of course, the atheists know they’re not just slamming the Bible, and everybody knows they know it. They’re saying Christians rape women, and they do it because of something they read in the Bible.
“I think we recognize that it might upset some people, but the Bible upsets many, many non-believers, especially when it’s being pushed in the public schools,” Seidel told Breitbart News. “So really, all it’s doing is placing believers and people who are in the majority in the position that we in the minority have been in for a very long time, and are in every time the government espouses one religion over another.”
Once again, the atheist hypocrisy is showing. Atheists drone on and on about how theirs is a “non-belief” and a “non-religion.” If that were the case, then they would have no reason to feel one way or another about Bibles, crosses, stars of David or any other religious symbol or activity. Yet they obviously do.
That’s because atheism is a religion like any other, albeit one that posits a purely mechanistic universe that somehow just happened. Moreover, atheism places great pride in its supposed intellectual accomplishments (especially the ones they’ve hijacked from Christian thinkers), including all of science.
Atheist motivations aren’t hard to suss out. Chief among them is jealousy. Atheists have little or nothing of their own to contribute, so they have to take from Judeo-Christian culture, either through lawsuits or through propaganda. By driving Christianity out of the public eye, atheists hope to replace it.
Another Seidel comment is telling: “Satanists can distribute their literature, Muslims can distribute the Quran, and atheists can distribute books that criticize religion.”
FFRF literature doesn’t criticize religion, though, it criticizes biblical religion — Judaism and Christianity.
It’s also interesting that Seidel puts atheists in the same sentence with Satanists and Muslims, since all three share the goal of destroying Christianity in America.
FFRF’s tracts, despite their pretensions, are virtually indistinguishable from the sort of “literature” you’d find in any hate group’s library. Imagine if instead of a cartoon Bible, the authors had used a cartoon figure of a rabbi or a priest … or a black man. Does that image clarify what the FFRF is really all about?
