Gingrich afraid of the big bad "secular atheists"

Newt Gingrich was either confused about the difference between atheists and radical islamists, or was trying to deliberately mislead a gullible audience when he said yesterday at Cornerstone Church in Texas:

“I am convinced that if we do not decisively win the struggle over the nature of America, by the time they’re my age they will be in a secular atheist country, potentially one dominated by radical Islamists,”

First of all, why the HELL would secular atheists allow radical islamists to dominate them? Doesn't make any damned sense. As a matter of fact, it is completely incoherent. I wonder if Mr. Gingrich was inebriated when he made that irrational statement? Too much church wine, perhaps?

Radical Islamists believe in God. Christians believe in God. But atheists know that God does not exist. Therefore, Christians have more in common with radical islamists than with atheists.

That's right, Christians and and radical Islamists, go have a church picnic together while we atheists are busy turning your homeland into a secular libertarian republic.

  1. Good luck with creating your secular utopia. I probably won't be alive to see how it turns out. I'm not going to defend Newt Gingrich. He's not my cup of tea.

  2. Hi Ross. Check out this BBC article. Apparently the UK is one of the most secular nations in the world, and the USA, one of the least. So you are probably right. It would be very difficult to make the USA secular.

    Also see this. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_atheism Apparently, Australia is more secular than the USA.
