Smut for Smut


Not sure if you have seen this, but there is a group called Atheist Agenda that is offering to trade Pornography for any religious books that are turned in. I guess this is in the spirit of various gun turn in programs. The group believes in active activism to spread their message and promote free thought.

Religion is a choice that people make. That is why this demonstration / program is not considered an attack as it is just offering an opposing belief. If it was against a race, or gender, or sexual persuasion, there is no way this rally would be tolerated. Since it is only against religion, what is the harm is the general thought.

I think it is a bit tasteless, but I really am not offended by the program. Of course there is an anti Smut for Smut group that protested, but why run to confront the people and their views? Since Christianity is the main organized religion, they rush to defend the perceived attack on their beliefs. Since atheists are against all religion though, the lack of response from Wiccans, Muslims, Mormons, and Jews should have shown the Christian group that there is no need to protest. The Christian group wasn’t defending their faith during the protest. That is something that they seem to not understand.

Let the atheist have their campaign. Feelings might be hurt, but no harm is done. The Christian group needs to spend their time reading and understanding the Bible and then leading lives that reflect the beliefs that they profess. Less Christian hypocrites means less people leaving the church out of frustration and anger.

    Thar also be a group of atheists who will take care of your pets after the rapture. For those of us who don’t believe in the rapture, that’s not a bad idea to generate some church funds. Thar be something to learn through programs like this… how about doing the opposite and offering religious books for porn that is turned in?

    Good post matie!

    • I forgot about the rapture people. Surprised that is not the new attack against God. How can there be a loving God if He forces you to leave your animals behind?

      Thanks for the comment.
