Has [censored by WordPress] stopped molesting children while he’s beating his wife yet? (The Bill Muehlenberg Trophy)

11 02 2008

[UPDATE: I have reluctantly altered the title of this post in accordance with the following message: “THIS POST HAS BEEN MARKED PRIVATE BY WORDPRESS.COM STAFF IN RESPONSE TO A DEFAMATION COMPLAINT. PLEASE CHANGE THE TITLE OF THIS POST BEFORE REPUBLISHING.”]

It’s about time I handed out another one of these things. This time it goes to Council Nedd II, an Anglican Bishop in the United States who runs an outfit by the name of In God We Trust:

There’s no doubt God loves America.But the left-wing God-hating atheists are imposing their radical agenda on America.

That’s why I formed In God We Trust. To fight back against the radical, God-hating left. To oppose the ACLU and People for the American way and defend the rights of ordinary Americans.

Slandering and lying about your opponents. It’s what Jesus would do.

What else would Jesus do? Well, for one thing, in response to the Freedom From Religion Foundation’s relatively innocuous “Imagine No Religion” billboard campaign (itself a response to the myriad Bible-bashing billboards that dot the roadsides of America), he’d produce billboards like this:

Bishop Nedd claims that he just wants a public debate in which “the atheists” defend their “Anti-American statements.” (Being critical of religion, you see, is “Anti-American” by definition.) He claims the moral high ground . . .

Think about what these atheists are really saying. ‘Imagine No Mother Theresa?’ ‘Imagine No Martin Luther King, Jr.?’ I guess that’s the kind of world in which these atheists think we would all be better off living. We disagree, and we think most Americans feel the same way.

. . . and implores visitors to his website to help financially in the “fight to defend America’s religious heritage.” So I guess it wouldn’t be too unreasonable ask Nedd to justify wasting money, which could have been better spent feeding and clothing the homeless and the downtrodden (isn’t that, after all, what Jesus would do?), on billboards telling lies about atheists? He is charitable enough to give his enemy a voice on his website, so that his followers can see for themselves “the Freedom From Religion Foundation’s views on patriotism, America, and religious freedom” and make up their own minds, by linking to . . . a page of “atheist quotes (all by Dan Barker, who–and I did not realise this until today, so I thank Nedd for drawing it to my attention–speaks on behalf the TEH ATHEIST HIVE MIND) .” A courageous and secure man, our Nedd.

Incidentally, the Freedom From Religion Foundation’s billboard campaign has been taking flak from other quarters within fundiedom. A billboard company in Pennsylvania has replaced an FFRF billboard with one of their own screaming “IN GOD WE TRUST,” beneath which the sign reads: “The previous sign posted at this location does not reflect the values or morals of our company. Thank you.”

For those who have trouble telling the difference between Bishop Council Nedd and Osama Bin Laden, here’s a guide: one is a foaming-at-the-mouth religious fanatic and sociopathic hate-monger who hides away from the real world in a cave while gleefully contemplating the eternal torture of those who have the temerity to hold religious viewpoints other than his own. The other one is a Muslim.
