For last weeks Satanic Sunday, click here.
Did you know that Atheists secretly worship Satan? If you didn’t then you probably weren’t raised in a fundamentalist Christian faith where all things are evil and one of the most evil of all things that you can be is a non-believer. How dare someone even question the existence of god?
As an impressionable child it was instilled upon me that all those who are outside the faith are evil. Heck, even Christians outside of my own denomination were considered as evil, but not quite as evil as a non-believer. Evil was an ever pervasive force in the world, controlled by the devil and anyone who did not adhere to our select doctrine was also controlled by his evil hand.
Below I list some of the things that I was taught to believe about Atheists.
1.) Atheists choose not to believe in god so that they can live an immoral life.
From the perspective of a child, atheists sounded like the most vile of creatures. Longing to have sex with anything and everything on earth. If you ever got around an atheist they would more than likely either try to fuck you or kill you. We were taught that the porn industry is 100% run and created by atheists in an effort to call more people to their cause. We were told that atheists love sodomy and that the first thing an atheist does is commit this act with great regularity.
2.) All Homosexuals are Atheist and all Atheists are Homosexuals
Going with the sodomy theme of the last tidbit is the belief that all atheists were secretly homosexuals. For some reason homosexuality is the cause and creation of all things evil in the world, within the confines of fundamentalist faiths. Basically, you question if god is real, become an atheist, and then wonder if dicks are yummy. It’s a truly juvenile belief system that equates any and all things to sodomy and homosexuality.
3.) Atheists commit child sacrifice and eat the children afterwards.
It’s funny to me how atheists today take this idea and run with it. However, the belief that atheists eat children is firmly rooted in fundamentalist faiths. This was much more true, at least in the US, during the 1980’s when the Satanic craze was at its peak. We would hear of Satanic meetings filled with hundreds of non-believers, meeting in graveyards or cornfields, specifically to murder children and then eat the remains. I suppose if they are in cornfields they at least have a nice side dish to go with the roasted baby.
4.) Atheists secretly believe in god but hate him.
This one is still pervasive today and is used mostly by christian apologists to try and prove their point. We atheists secretly believe in god but hate him due to our insane need for anal sex and other forms of debauchery. Satan allows us to feel safe and secure, believing we will be kings and queens in hell when we ultimately get there. It’s an incredibly silly thought used only by those who are completely incapable of forming a better argument for their own beliefs.
The truth is that Atheists do not believe in god. Some might be homosexual but many are heterosexual and have no interest in sodomy whatsoever. We definitely don’t eat babies or take part in ritualistic sacrifice. We don’t choose to not believe in god due to a want to live an immoral life. From my own experiences, atheists are by and large incredibly moral creatures, though they are just as capable of committing an immoral act as any believer.
What truly separates a moral atheist from a moral theist is the reward/punishment system. When I was a theist, I did good things because of a reward I would receive in heaven and tried not to commit immoral acts for fear of hell. If I did something immoral, I would ask god for forgiveness and feel better after having done so. Today I do good things because they are good things and I try not to do immoral things because I do not want to do immoral things. If I do something immoral I regret it and, if it involves someone, I will seek forgiveness from the person whom I have hurt. I no longer have any sanctimonious feelings of redemption for any bad that I do and so I simply try my best not to commit any bad act.
Atheists do not worship satan any more than we worship your god. As I’ve stated many times. Atheism = The lack of belief in a god or many gods. Simple as that, nothing more and nothing less.
