Mystery:Why Do Atheists Dislike Underdogs?

In Britain, where atheism dominates, people dislike underdogs and tend to root for the contestant who is favored to win. The opposite is true in the Christian United States, where the underdogs have traditionally been the favorites of the people.

However, as the liberal media in the United States becomes increasingly atheistic, victories by underdogs are increasingly met with dismay or disapproval.

Why do atheists dislike underdogs?

Possible Reason No. 1: Atheism Is About Control

One obvious reason is that atheism is about control. Stalin, a famous atheist in the 20th century, probably did not like underdogs. Underdogs threaten the status quo and the worldview of atheists. Upset victories are unsettling to people like Stalin.

Quote# 86012

Under no circumstances will I ever stand before my Maker and explain that because he was the lesser of two evils, I supported a baby-killing cultist who directly or through his organization proclaimed that:

There are more gods than the one God revealed in the Bible.

God is a glorified, perfected human being with a body of flesh and bone.

God is polygamously married to dozens (at least) of wives, and spends eternity as a type of Celestial Stud engaged in endless copulation producing countless spirit babies.

Jesus is the spirit brother of Lucifer.

Jesus is the literal Son of God who was conceived through direct sexual intercourse between the Virgin Mary and God the Father -- or in other words, that God committed incest with his daughter Mary.

A person is saved into heaven by virtue of their good works.

A person must accept Joseph Smith in order to receive salvation.

A person must pass in judgment before Joseph Smith before being admitted into Heaven.

A person must believe in Prophet Lorenzo Snow's famous couplet: As man now is, God once was ... As God now is, Man may become.

Non-whites are loathsome and cursed because of something they did or did not do in the dawn of pre-existence whereas people of European descent in general, and Mormons in particular, are white and delightsome.

A person must aspire to be sealed in a Masonic-based temple ceremony to his/her spouse for time and all eternity so that they may someday become gods and goddesses ruling over our own planet.

Wives will only be resurrected if their husbands call forth their Temple Name from beyond the veil.

Christianity ceased to exist after the death of the twelve apostles, to the point where all Christian Churches (especially the Baptists, Catholics, Methodists and Presbyterians) are an abomination to the Lord.

The Mormon Church is Christian.

Furthermore, I can't believe that any true Christian anywhere would ever contemplate supporting any candidate for any public office that espouses such horrible heretical and blasphemous doctrines -- be they Muslim, Mormon, or whatever.

In my case, if asked to uphold one cultist or the other, I will always support neither, no matter what the cost or penalty.

[Regarding Madonna's Super Bowl half time show]

The entire thing was occult.

First of all, she was representing the Babylonian/Mesopotamian goddess Ishtar. If you think her stage name is just coincidence, think again. Mary/Madonna is just a front for millenia-old "divine feminine" worship. And the Roman-esqe looking soldiers? Revived Roman Empire, anyone? And all the other gods she had dominion over? Who has dominion over false gods aka demons? Who are we really representing?

When she fell below the stage into "oblivion" as the lines "I hear you call my name, and it feels like home" come on. Heaven should "feel like home" when we're talking about prayer, and God. Because of the overtly suggestive undertones of the song, it can only mean one other thing: She's talking about HER god, Lucifer.

World Peace? Power of suggestion? Yep. All there. Even the push for the OWG. Yippee! (*Heavy Sarcasm*)

There is just so much more, but this symbolism is becoming much more obvious as time passes.

We decided before the game began we were going to watch an episode of Myth Busters to pass the time. Thank the Lord we did.

Lord, can you pretty please come get us now?

(As a brief aside... if you look at all the new movies coming out, what are they focusing on? Super heroes= the call for someone to save the people; and the apocalyptic type movies? It's just obvious.)

OH!!! One more thing and then I'm done, I promise. Did anyone else see the post-apocalyptic Chevy commercial? All the cities were destroyed, meteors were falling to earth, volcanoes were going off; and after a few survivors joined up and shared twinkies, frogs- FROGS were falling from the sky.

People who laughed really have no idea what they're in for...

The homosexuals are the bullies. Less than 2% of the population is coercing the rest of us into following their agenda. These story is the one Rolling Stone wants you to hear. Just as certainly as they want you to believe that Jerry Sandusky is a pedophile when he is in fact a homosexual pederast. Who are the real victims? Teens led to believe that they are homosexual by tolerant people who say its ok to be that way? Or teens who are raped and told to keep quiet? Unfortunately the answer is both. As raped teens are "bullied" into thinking its their fault they are raped. If they weren't "gay" they wouldn't have been raped in the first place. Tolerance is the devil's best weapon. When you open the box of homosexuality you let out an evil you can't control. I know you children have been led to believe there is no such thing as evil...you should question that. Rolling Stone is no authority on anything.

Hundreds packed Oslo District Court to see Anders Behring Breivik, the Norwegian man who confessed to last summer’s twin terror attacks in Oslo, for the last time before his long-awaited trial in April.

Mr. Breivik appeared in court for a final custody hearing dressed in a dark suit, composed and smiling subtly as he flashed his handcuffed arms in what his lawyer described as an extremist gesture in front of the media, survivors, and victims’ families.

He pleaded not guilty to the car bomb blast on July 22 against government buildings in Oslo and a subsequent shooting spree on the Labor party youth camp on the island of Utøya that killed 77 in the worst national tragedy in Norway since World War II.

Breivik cited self defense on behalf of his culture as the basis for his plea. He said both attacks were a “preventive attack on traitors” because the Labor-led government – which he has blamed for promoting the "Islamic colonization" of Norway – was allowing the “deconstruction of Norwegian culture.” Breivik suggested he should receive a war medal for his actions.

“Ethnic Norwegians will become the minority in 10 years,” Breivik said during a brief opening statement, which provoked short, sharp bouts of laughter from victims present in court. “Indigenous people subject to genocide have the right to defend themselves.”

[Brackets represent another poster]

[Are you saying that God's morality is dependent on what society deems acceptable at the time? How do you differentiate that morality from society's morality if it is context-specific? And what makes a god's morality worth following if it changes with the times, making it less likely to be a god's morality in the first place?]

No, God's morality doesn't change, what changes are the laws necessary to uphold it. God wants what's best for women...and at the time that did mean marrying your rapist.

[Furthermore, using this logic, you can disregard laws against homosexuality in the same way.]

If you want my honest opinion on it, I believe the only reason God forbade homosexual sex was the horribly increased risk of diseases associated with anal sex and fecal matter-penile contact. He was trying to protect us. Now that it's possible to protect yourself, I think God would be a little bit more lenient.

[The same question applies to you. Why some laws and not others? Well?]

Again, context specific laws in some cases are unnecessary or don't work anymore, but moral laws (Honor your mother and father, don't kill) are unchanging.

A Christian group has been banned from claiming it can heal people after complaints to the advertising watchdog.
Healing on the Streets - Bath (HOTS) stages regular sessions outside the city’s abbey and says 'scores of people' have been 'physically healed' as a result of its work.

But Christians have reacted furiously to the decision, saying the ASA is trying to ban the 'basic Christian belief that God can heal illness'.
The watchdog has now told HOTS not to make claims which stated or implied that, by receiving prayer from their volunteers, people could be healed of medical conditions.

HOTS, who base themselves outside the Abbey, pictured, has reacted angrily to the decision and confirmed it will appeal against the findings
It was also ruled that the group should not refer to medical conditions in their adverts 'for which medical supervision should be sought'.
HOTS has reacted angrily to the decision and confirmed it will appeal against the findings.
In a statement, the group said: "It seems very odd to us that the ASA wants to prevent us from stating on our website the basic Christian belief that God can heal illness."

Simon Heller, one of the attorneys, plans to quiz [FDA Deputy Operations Commissioner] Woodcock on a March 23, 2004, staff memo suggesting she was concerned Plan B might lead to teenage promiscuity.

The FDA is only supposed to consider the safety and efficacy of drugs.

In the memo released by the FDA, Dr. Curtis Rosebraugh, an agency medical officer, wrote: "As an example, she [Woodcock] stated that we could not anticipate, or prevent extreme promiscuous behaviors such as the medication taking on an 'urban legend' status that would lead adolescents to form sex-based cults centered around the use of Plan B."

When I mean monkey i mean it in terms of all primates or primates that became extinct. You have proved my point and my argument against atheism, you don't even have a proper definition of what a human is because science has no criteria, My point is that fossil records are not enough to prove evolution, those properties that the certain fossil records have can be argued to be human, what i mean by here is just because there is maybe a little difference in the shape of the bone there are other features that are more human. For instance, The homo erectus is said to be a different species because of its skull contents and big eye brows, but we have humans today with the same features so how can we consider them a different species?? This is my point.

"The God of the Bible made the human sperm, the God of the Bible designed it and it was not designed to be emptied into an area that is filled with feces," Wooden said, noting that gay sex would "most certainly mean the extinction of the human race.”

He then added, "Who wants to practice anything that is going to ultimately lead a grown man to about the time he’s in his 40s or 50s, or what not, having to wear a diaper or a 'butt plug' just to be able to contain their bowels?"

[On wealthy televangelists.]

When did Jesus speak against Having a large amount of money? Jesus said that the Love of money is the root of all evil. Are we supposed to live poor and oppressed lives to follow Jesus? He even had a wealthy tax collector as one of his disciples (Matthew). When Jesus told his followers to leave all behind and follow him, it meant that they had to be willing to give everything up - even their lives to follow him. It doesn't mean that they had to be poor, otherwise the guy under the bridge downtown is more 'spiritual­' than i.

[Washington State Legislature has enough votes to legalize same-sex marriage.]

Oh Whoopee, now all the Citizens in Washington State can jump for joy. They will all be so happy they can be Gay now.
Grandfathers will be so glad that their gay grandsons will not propogate their genes and name and make Great-Grandchildren. Fathers can do the same. And Mothers will be so overjoyed with their gay girls who don't share their genes either.

The Lawyers will Jump for Joy. Just think of all the Gay Divorces. And of course, we won't judge anyone for their 10th broken gay marriage.

Lastly the Devil jumps for Joy. He has a lot of Souls to take with him to his domain. Adultery and Fornication will be rampant and more marriages can dissolve. He says, 'Who cares about the spouses and children they abandoned, just like in Brokeback Mountain, of course it is just fine'. The Devil claps his hands.

And the Children. Well they will be so happy when daddy or mommy (obsolete terms) leaves them for the gay lover.

Oh, Whooped Dee Doo!

Indiana Senate Bill No. 89 (teaching creationism)
exact wording from the bill.
"Sec. 18. The governing body of a school corporation may
offer instruction on various theories of the origin of life. The curriculum for the course must include theories from multiple religions, which may include, but is not limited to, Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Scientology."
I think this is a bad idea considering how badly public schools present "evidence" for evolution, but it could have a positive result in breaking up the monopoly that evolutionist have. This might also allow young minds to see the truth of the Gospels

why do you guys think of this bill?

As you know they therefore are just activist seeking attention that they didn't receive through a good faith based family structure. So, as I stated earlier an Atheist is just a loon for all intense and purpose in the eyes of the other 91% who do believe in religion.

[Starbucks takes a position in favor of same-sex marriage.]

According to Kalen Holmes, executive vice president for Partner Resources, destroying the concept of marriage, encouraging lethal disease-spreading sexual deviance, and pandering to militant perverts are “core to who we are and what we value as a company.”

Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality reminds us that despite the best efforts of the moonbats running Starbucks, we are not yet living in Sodom or Gomorrah:

“It’s just very sad because corporations, including Starbucks, they seem so much more solicitous of 1 to 3 percent of the population than the many, many millions of pro-family, mainly Christian consumers who oppose the redefinition of marriage.”

Yet again, the silent majority is spat on. But we do have a voice if we speak with our wallets. As LaBarbera notes,

“It’s so easy, you just get your expensive cup of coffee somewhere else.”

Get it somewhere else and it probably won’t be as expensive.

It’s only a matter of time before atheists like Jessica Ahlquist demand:

1) the state not allow Christian Churches on public roads throughout this country because it creates the illusion that the state endorses religion.

2)Demand Churches remove their crosses and silence their bells so not to offend non-believers

3) Cities like St Louis and San Diego change their names because the word Saint endorses a religion.

4) The military remove all Christian Chaplains so not appear to endorse religion.

5) Public College/high school sport programs remove the ‘Hail Mary’ pass from their playbook.

6) Prayer in public will not be allowed anywhere because it might offend non-believers.

7) Christians wear a giant C on the left side of their chest so they can be easily identified and thus publicly shunned.

8) One will not be able to shop at a business owned by a Christian, in the name of FAIRNESS,because it gives the appearance of favoring a religious business over a secular one.

9) Biblical Christian(Lucifer and Judas are exempt) names will no longer be accepted on birth certificates so it does not create the appearance of the state endorsing religion.

10) Islam is exempt from All of the above rules in the name of diversity and as an expression of multiculturalism!

Yes...We are repeating history......all postmodernists (movement started in Germany) had a vile hatred for God—particularly the Judeo/Christian God. I see it now here.

This hatred for Christianity and Jews in Germany was exhibited in all the media in the Wiemar Republic. They were great at Mass agitprop....even Bonhoeffer’s mother refused to let her sons go to “Prussian” schools-—they were just for mass indoctrination into secular humanism and she recognized it. (BTW, Our schools adopted their Prussian system—Dewey—of mass indoctrination and after 12 years we create the same mindset as the secular humanists who revile Christian Ethics.)

Although most (or all) of the SA Brownshirts were homosexuals—they used homosexuality to get rid of all their enemies—it was easy to set up people. That is why the Pink Swastika was written-—because homosexuals were claiming victim status in a museum-—but as the book proved, homosexuals were perpetrators of some of the most vicious attacks on the Jews—and their boys. The brutality was incredibly evil because of their sick and twisted godless minds. A lot who were accused of homosexuality weren’t—it was a tool to get rid of Nazi enemies—and all evidence was rigged.

Another big step on the road to Whatever is not Prohibited is Mandatory - homo-nazi agenda style.

I’m sure you know the details - but the day homo-marriage was made “legal” in MA by one judge, the head of the MA education department ruled that schoolchildren had to be taught “gay is good” since homo-marriage was now the law of the state.

They’re after the children. That’s obvious, and they want to destroy society. I have a list of quotes from homo-spokesholes, very clearly stating their real reasons for “gay marriage” and it’s not monogamy, lifelong “love” or white picket fences. It’s to purposely destroy the very meaning of family, marriage and the fabric of society.

Well, well, well…the white devil lawmakers of the state of New York have finally made marriage between nasty, same-sex, freak monsters lawful, thanks to the support of the so-called pro-family conservatives. Imagine that; now, with the political concurrence of the leaders of American society, gay sex monsters named “Bob” and “Bill” can pretend to be married, and pack stinking rectal feces in the name of Christianity! With the political blessing of your local lawmakers, hairy lesbian super-butches like “Sally” and “Heather” can now pretend to be married sex vermin who crawl under each other and nibble like nasty sewer rats. Oh my! America continues to sink precipitously into savagery by the micro-seconds.

Liberal Negroes parrot white devils and say that it is political suicide for elected officials to oppose such lifestyle of decadence. But let’s think about this for a second folks. What civilized persons in their right minds would favor such a political posture? Spineless jellyfish who pass for political leaders and who promote feces-packing, man-humping, gay marriages are beneath honor and should be ashamed of themselves. They care not for the true responsibility of a leader to always uphold the highest standard of civilization. Instead, today’s so-called leaders would rather sell their souls to the blue-eyed devils by promoting homosexuality and all manner of degeneracy, just so they can keep a sweet and cozy political relationship with the white establishment.

The agenda behind homosexual instruction, in a "White Supremist" operated public school is to effiminate the males, and defeminate the women to halt "birth production".

And unless you have another educational agenda superior to the White Power establishment, (which I would like to hear, or see in writing), please tell me:

"How come straight teachers are teaching kids "how to be homosexual"?

Quote# 85950

Spanking, Loving, Surrendering

The moment there was an act of disobedience, disrespect, or dishonesty, we would tell the child they were going to get a spanking and why. We would often tell them to go get the spanking spoon and go upstairs to their room. Once in their room we would explain again why, give the spanking, and then evaluate if there was an attitude of surrender and humility or an attitude of defiance and rebellion. While evaluating the child’s attitude, we would hug our child and love our child and tell them we love them and tell them that Jesus loves them. If there was an attitude of rebellion, such as an arching of the back, or pulling away, etc., we would tell them they were going to get another spanking if they didn’t relent and surrender with a humble attitude. We would then administer another spanking in the same way as the first. Each time the child would be given an opportunity to express remorse and surrender. If necessary, this process would go on through numerous cycles, lasting forty minutes or more. It was important to us to never let go a continuing defiant attitude. Continuing until there is a humbling of the heart is of the utmost importance.

When the child would surrender with a humble heart, we would encourage them to say “I’m sorry” to the Lord Jesus, but we wouldn’t force that. We would encourage them to receive Jesus' forgiveness. We would then pray together. And we would pray that the Lord Jesus would help them with their problem and behavior and that the Lord would help Dad or Mom to be good parents. We would often acknowledge that we, as parents, often struggle with the same sins, and that Jesus “spanks” us, too. Using this time to discuss important things with the child is very valuable, teaching them what the Bible says about sin and repentance and walking with the Lord Jesus.

Quote# 85943

Dancing is just as sinful at high school proms, ballrooms, town gatherings, etc. Dancing and immodest dress are synonymous. Dancing leads to lasciviousness (i.e., immoral sexual desire). The ONLY place where dancing is acceptable is between a husband and wife in the privacy of their own home, and without observation by others. America has deteriorated into a sexually perverted nation, where sensual and suggestive dancing is commonplace. As a result, millions of unwanted babies continue to be murdered every year through abortion. This is a great evil in America! We have earned the title from Muslims of being THE GREAT SATAN!

Think about it ... the average person today can't help but laugh at the thought that dancing is a sin; yet millions of unplanned pregnancies continue to be terminated through murderous abortions. Is it surprising that a nation that sees no harm in murdering children would also see no harm in premarital sex, petting, dancing, pornography, stealing, divorcing, and filthy conversation? I think not.

God will not bless a wicked nation whose citizens disobey His Word. America today as a morally-toxic society. This is a dangerous place to raise a family. Children are being indoctrinated and corrupted by the Communist public school system. Men are being corrupted by the sensual filth and pornographic smut that has overtaken and ruined our country. Women are being brainwashed by feminism, indoctrinated to destroy their marriages.

Young girls today, they want to have fun. Young girls today just wanna party. Today young girls wanna go to a nightclub and have open sex on the floor of the nightclub, and then put it on YouTube, and if they should get pregnant they want to throw the baby into a dumpster. That's the new America! No morals. No self-respect. No nation. No borders. No language. No culture. No responsibility. Now that's America today!

[Re: The proposed building of a temple for atheists...]

I agree with you 100%. In my opinion many atheists aren't content with merely being nonbelievers. It seems that there is a real agenda to destroy religion all together, particularly Christianity. I have noticed myself that most of them are very angry and bitter. In my heart I believe they are Satan's helpers. They are not only non believers, but are working to create as many nonbelievers as possible. An especially aggressive group is the freedom from religion foundation. They spend their time bashing Christianity and mocking believers in God, and suing anyone who displays an ounce of Christianity in public. I know that the Bible talks about growing apostasy, but as a lover of God, it really troubles my heart. Now that I see they are building a "temple" I am even more disturbed. Once again Satan's servants mocking God
