And you wonder why we're christophobes..

And you wonder why we're christophobes..

The United States has failed to take action to mitigate climate change thanks in part to the large number of religious Americans who believe the world has a set expiration date.

[www.rawstory.com]

The apologist bitches and moans about aggressive atheists like Richiard Dawkins but the fact remains some christians are f*cking insane. And when insane people have a say in political agendas they are a thread to humanity. People like Richard Dawkins see this insanity and have to fight against it. And I'm glad he insults you and belittles you and berates you because frankly you deserve worse.

The article above is just a tip of the crazy iceberg. It is the driving force as to why there are so called militant atheists. While you f*cking nutjobs are worried about our souls, us atheists are worried about the children you abuse the scientific discoveries you stop us from making and the madness that is your doctrine of armegaddon which you happily embrace and wish for...

I would think that a far bigger reason why the United States has failed to take action to mitigate climate change is because corporations, whose profits would be reduced by those corrective actions, own our government.

I agree. But it is people power that negate corporate influence. If humanity decideds to grow up and stop believing in a fairy land after death and realises this planet is all we have, we would not have this problem. Sure climate change will happen no matter what. but its greed and hope of armegaddon that has accelerates it. And I bet most fossil fuel magnates are jesusfreaks. They don't care because Genesis says they're allowed to rape the planet. And they don't want a solution because they'll be one with christ soon. Why give a f8ck about the survival of humanity. The afterlife and the glory of god is all that matters.

The corporations find religious ignorance useful in preventing meaningful change vis a vis the environment and progress.

And I'll bet they're not. They're just greedy corporate capitalists. They may purport to be Christians, but the religion they really follow is Profitism.

Don't get me wrong - evangelical Christianity doesn't help. But the main driving force is Profitism. Profitism would be calling the shots regardless.

Again I agree Donna, but you ignore the study, evangelical christians WANT the world to end and climate change is their ticket. So they will support anything that will get them them as soon as possible. It's easier to fight corporation than jesusfreaks hell bent in wanting the world to end.

“[T]he fact that such an overwhelming percentage of Republican citizens profess a belief in the Second Coming (76 percent in 2006, according to our sample) suggests that governmental attempts to curb greenhouse emissions would encounter stiff resistance even if every Democrat in the country wanted to curb them,” Barker and Bearce wrote in their study, which will be published in the June issue of Political Science Quarterly.

The study, based on data from the 2007 Cooperative Congressional Election Study, uncovered that belief in the “Second Coming” of Jesus reduced the probability of strongly supporting government action on climate change by 12 percent when controlling for a number of demographic and cultural factors. When the effects of party affiliation, political ideology, and media distrust were removed from the analysis, the belief in the “Second Coming” increased this effect by almost 20 percent.


Okay, I have 2 comments.

1. All Christians believe in the Second Coming. It's a basic tenet of Christianity. Christians have believed in the Second Coming since the time of Jesus.

2. As evidenced most clearly by the U.S. Congress' failure to bring a gun background check bill to a vote, notwithstanding the fact that 90% of Americans support background checks, public opinion doesn't matter anymore to Congress, at least not in the U.S. We no longer have a democracy on the national level. Corporations run everything now.

So as the study claims donna, the majority of christians are looking forward to the end of the world. I find this scary. I find the repulsive. I blame this as just one reason as to why we have miltant atheism. And that why I support it. I want humanity to survive most christians dont care if humanity does. This fact should concern any human with rudimenatry intelligence.

A new study suggests that efforts to mitigate climate change in the USA have been met with such resistance for a pretty unbelievable reason - many citizens believe the second coming is imminent, so any efforts to improve the world are a waste of time.

Frighteningly, this belief has been uttered by legislators. In 2010 Rep. John Shimkus (R-IL) stated that he opposed any and all action on climate change because “the Earth will end only when God declares it to be over.” He is the chairman of the Subcommittee on Environment and the Economy.

I find this attitude in even many non-Christians. They want disaster to wipe out humankind. Its a death wish that is rather common. Thus these types will often actually want to pollute the world more and lead it to disaster.

I'm with you, FF. There is great need for atheistic/secular militancy. Fight fire with fire! Maybe a happy medium will suffice for all but if secularists preach moderation, the settling point or meeting in the middle would still be too close to the religious culty side of the equation. It's already working! Hallelujah! Hope I live long enough to see an atheist POTUS. Finally a leader of the free world sans stupidstition!

The average American's religious beliefs are as primitive as some Stone Age tribe in New Guinea Plus the fact that their level of understanding of their own religion is about of the level of a 4th grader
They are so fvcking stupid they are not even embarrassed
