US is ant-christian
Just picked this up off another forum- tis funny

here are some examples of powerful anti-Christian trends in our culture.

**George Carlins "seven holy words" that cannot be broadcast on television are: "God," "Jesus," "Christ," "bless," "heaven," "salvation," and "soul."

**George Bush I said that Christians should not be considered patriots or real American citizens.

**Bill Clinton and George Bush II refuse to give any speeches at churches.

** On Sunday mornings, nearly all major television and radio channels broadcast pro-atheist shows; it is nearly impossible to find religious programming during that time period. Further, Madalyn Murray O'Hair has her own rebroadcast cable TV channels, and stations. Pat Robertson and Falwell et al have been unable to obtain media time.

**Most major newspapers run a weekly section devoted to atheism. There are no equivalent sections for religious news.

**Anti-Christian shows such as the American Atheist Forum are broadcast by major national networks. Billy Graham is only able to get on the air through public access TV, which is watched by few people.

**Nobody is ever shown giving thanks to God after surviving a disaster.

**It is almost impossible to find a shopping mall with a Christian Armory book store, while Atheist Book Centers are on every corner.

**Churches are extremely rare and it is nearly impossible for Christian couples to find a church where they can marry.
Atheist meeting centers can be found every few blocks.

**All of our elected public officials are atheists; they swear on a copy of Darwin's "Origin of Species" in order to take office.

** Christians often find it nearly impossible to get time off work for religious holidays such as Christmas.

**Radical anti-Christian bias pervades our society. When somebody sneezes, most people say "Darwin bless you". Similarly, "Voltaire dammit!" is a common cussword.

**Our money has the atheistic slogan "We do not trust in God" printed on it.

**In school, our children are made to recite the pledge, "One nation, anti-God, ..."

**Athiest Organizations such as the Boy Scouts deny membership to Christians and heterosexuals.

**Christian churches are forced to pay exorbitant taxes.

**Darwin fish dominate the Fish Wars and "Jesus Was A Jerk" is a common bumper sticker.

**Pedestrians are virtually forced to receive Betrand Russell's tract "Why I Am Not A Christian".

**Christians are afraid to admit their Christianity to parents and friends, for fear their kin will consider them immoral Christian scum and want nothing to do with them.

**At baseball games, you can often spot people carrying signs that read "Origin Of Species, page 34".

**86% of Americans do not believe in God.

**Politicians often refer to America's "Agnosto-Atheist heritage" when trying to woo voters.

**Jurors must take an oath upon a copy of the Skeptical Inquirer before they can serve. There have even been court cases thrown out because one of the jury members was a Christian who insisted on swearing on a Bible.

**People are free to wear pentagram jewelry, but those trying to wear cross-shaped earrings or pendants to work will be politely told to remove the jewelry or lose their job.

**Every hotel room has a copy of Nietzsche's The Anti-Christ in the room.

"There are no Christians in foxholes" is a popular slogan in our society.

**Most hospitals are full of atheist symbols, and many prominently feature statues of Nietszche, Darwin, and so forth.

**Communities set up atheist brainwashing facilities, and apply l pressure to citizens to attend every Sunday morning. Furthermore, attendees are expected to contribute money to support these facilities, and to build others in other countries.

**Most parents in America indoctrinate their children at an early age to be atheists by forcing them to attend these brainwashing sessions, whether they want to or not.

**Atheists are beginning to subvert the American political process. For example, the American Atheists recently published millions of voter's guides for distribution at atheist meeting-houses. These guides gave specific instructions note to vote for those who oppose atheist values.

**Atheists regularly go door-to-door on Sunday mornings asking people not to go to church.

**Atheists have often invented "deathbed deconversion" stories about famous Christians, claiming they became atheists just before they died.

**Despite the overwhelming number of Atheists in the general population and in powerful legislative positions, when they don't get their own way, Atheists whine that this is an anti-Atheistic country.

3. So tell me?
Where can I get my "Jesus was a Jerk" bumpersticker. It would make a great compliment to my "God is a Dickwad" bumpersticker. :evilgrin:

5. As a Christian (namely Catholic), I find this to be
excellent and utterly hilarious. :D Really puts the separation of church and state issue in perspective. Calm down, folks, no one's trying to take your religion away
