Atheists rage at the very thought of their being a straight line succession of thought from savages like Stalin to them. Believing themselves to be good people, they must fight any notion that if they were in power, they'd never ever try to eradicate Christianity by the means used by other like-thinkers.
“Individual atheists may do evil things,” says Richard Dawkins, “but they don’t do evil things in the name of atheism.”
No, atheists do evil because their atheism spawns a seething and irrational hatred for Christianity as demonstrated by Dawkins, Harris, Hitchens, Dennett, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Honecker, Castro, Ho, Marx, Engels, Lenin, Kim, Ceausescu and virtually every atheist that blogs about religion. The point of their agenda is, ‘Religion is harmful. Get rid of it and everything will begin to move toward civil society.’ Marx and Engels put it bluntly, “Abolish all religion and all morality.”
Richard Dawkins simply cannot bring himself to admit that atheism was the driving force from which atheists, directing governments made up exclusively of atheists were obsessed with spreading anti-God propaganda, and specialized in the murder of almost 100 million believers in the last century. Atheist Soviet rulers systematically and efficiently destroyed the majority of churches and killed the majority of religious leaders during a period from 1918 - 1941. This was not individual atheists perpetrating evil. This was individual atheists doing evil in the name of atheism. They were perpetrating evil, all according to the atheist driven agenda to eliminate Christianity from society.
Atheism is opposed to God and anything that smacks of His presence; especially the people who worship Creator God.
Because it is so absurd, I can only assume that Richard Dawkins finds the following comment amusing. When he’s confronted with the atrocities done by atheists in the name of atheism, Dawkins says with a straight face, “Well, Stalin also had a moustache. Maybe we should blame the death of Christians on people with moustaches.” Pathetic and pitiful more correctly describes Dawkins’ attempt to deliberately confuse the obvious. Dawkins and friends can’t even recognize how close they are to encouraging the Soviet experiment to repeat itself in the West. Like Russian atheists before him, in “Letter to a Christian Nation” Sam Harris bemoans, “the failure of our schools to announce the death of God in a way that each generation can understand.” He even goes on to say that some ideas are so dangerous that people may need to be killed simply for having those ideas. If you don’t see this as a dangerously secular idea, you are not an observer of history.
The fact is that in the 20th century, a third of the world saw atheists pronounce the death of God throughout their nations. They declared it on billboards, in schools, government controlled publications, from speaker trucks roaming through the streets, over the radio and in secret jails where torture was used in an attempt to force Christians to deny their faith. Leaders in the underground Church in China spoke in our Church a few months ago. They told us that in today’s atheist China, secret worship services in homes, warehouses, and even groups meeting in the forests and fields are forcibly broken up. If caught, those who attended are beaten or killed or taken to reeducation camps, never to be seen again. The accounts they related made us squirm in our pews and wonder, “How would I do under such intense pressure?” Interestingly, these people didn't ask us to pray for an end to the persecution. Rather, they asked us to pray for their strength and courage to continue to spread the Word of God in spite of persecution.
In the 20th century a hundred million people have been killed under the banner of atheism in its hatred of Jesus and the religion that worships Him. This pattern continues to this very day and there is no reason to expect that atheists who possess the needed power will stop anytime soon.
