Federer: Atheists Will Kill Millions of Christians!


Bill Federer, a sort of poor man’s David Barton, went on Gordon Klingenschmitt’s little Youtube show and expressed his concern that if atheists take over the military they’ll start executing millions of Christians. Because that’s totally plausible.

    Why bother? Just get a couple hundred of the influential ones at the top of the scam and it would be impotent. Not Federer, of course. He’s not important enough.

    The whole reason these Talibangelicals have been pushing for a Christianist takeover of the US military is so that they can kill millions of atheists, homosexuals, feminists, heathen, apostates, and everyone else who is not a member of the “right” theology and politics. It is understandable that they would see opposition to this Divine Plan as an effort to do the same to them.

    I spent 27 years in the Canadian military and the number of agnostic/atheists/apathetic cultural christians was, by my unscientific observation, a pretty healthy majority of members. I don’t recall mass murders…just a lot of rational decision making and equality.

    Based on the history, Christians are so good at killing each other that atheists really don’t need to bother.

    Gregory, everything the Christians blame on their enemies is a reflection of their inner beliefs. Their tirades against gay people confirm this. Christians say that gay people can only make more gay people by recruiting children, but that is in fact how Christians do it. Dawkins pointed out that no one is born Christian. Christians talk in fear about being sent to retraining camps, but they have in fact set up retraining camps for gay kids. … and so on.

    Even mainstream conservative Christians claim atheism leads to genocide. E.g., Rick Warren on a Meet the Press Easter Special a couple of years back.

    Of course atheism does no such thing, while authoritarianism does if they dominate politically. Where authoritarianism is a pervasive attribute amongst U.S. and Canadian conservative Christians. I refer to Canada here since Bob Altemeyer’s research started first with Canadians prior to him and other scientists extending their research to the U.S.

    Tempted? TEMPTED?

    What about all those atheist-majority countries with militaries… that don’t go around killing millions (hint they obey their commanding officers who, also atheists aren’t authoritarian homicidal maniacs).

    That was astonishing. When “a military no longer believes that every person is sacred because they are made in the image of God” — then they’re going to start killing people.

    Hmmmmm….

  9. says

    I thought letting gays serve in the military was going to ruin it, because they’d be too busy having sex or something to fight. Make up your mind, cranks!

    Let us remember:

    Proctor: And Giles?
    Elizabeth: .You have not heard of it?
    Proctor: I hear nothin’, where I am kept.
    Elizabeth: Giles is dead. [He looks at her incredulously].
    Proctor: When were he hanged?
    Elizabeth, [quietly, factually]: He were not hanged. He would not answer aye or nay to his indictment; for if he denied the charge they’d hang him surely, and auction out his property. So he stand mute, and died Christian under the law. And so his sons will have his farm. It is the law, for he could not be condemned a wizard without he answer the indictment, aye or nay.
    Proctor: Then how does he die?
    Elizabeth, [gently]: They press him, John.
    Proctor: Press?
    Elizabeth: Great stones they lay upon his chest until he plead aye or nay. [With a tender smile for the old man]: They say he give them but two words. “More weight,” he says. And died.
    Proctor, [numbed – a thread to weave into his agony]: “More weight,”
    Elizabeth: Aye. It were a fearsome man, Giles Corey.

    Point 1: If atheists “take over” the military, it will have negligible effect on what kids say or don’t say in public schools.

    (Here, “take over” means ending the unconstitutional Xtian proselytizing of troops.)

    Point 2: Neither will military authorities have any say about crosses in the desert. Or about whether a coach bows his head while students are at prayer. Or whether bakers do or do not have to bake cakes for same-sex weddings.

    “Once the people that are pushing that agenda get in charge of the guns, do we really expect them to be more tolerant than they are now?”

    No; we expect them to be just as tolerant — unlike your lot.

    “Or, will they be tempted to use their new power to force their agenda?”

    You forgot to add “down our throats.”

    “Now the reason this is a concern is because…”

    …every atheist in America’s military is just like Stalin and Pol Pot and Mao Zedung. /sarc

    Point 3: “And so this is a concern a lot of people have.”

    You and Klingenschmitt and Fischer and Barton are not “a lot of people.”

    expressed his concern that if atheists take over the military they’ll start executing millions of Christians.

    Well, to be fair, many of these people are merely extrapolating from what they wish they could still do.

    Of course you didn’t see the mass murders. The Candadian military killed most of the Christians before you enlisted. That’s why the atheists were in the majority.

    This is why I sometimes reconsider religion as a necessary evil–it’s an established fact that when a Republican stops believing in Hell, he more often than not becomes a Libertarian.

  15. Christoph Burschka says

    I guess HE expects the atheist inquisition…

    Our chief weapon is ridicule.

  16. Matt G says

    Ridicule and genocide. Genocide and ridicule. Our TWO weapons are genocide and ridicule.

    A layer of putrid onion skin peels away and the gross stench of fear and rancid urine reveals the intent of the host.

    They are so scared of atheists and atheism probably for the first time in over 2000 yrs, because they do not know how to deal with it…it does not fit with what they have been told since birth, that atheism is of the devil etc etc…

    They tried framing atheism as a religion they got laughed at, they tried equating it with Nazism with little tangible success, they originally classed it as a mental incapacity, then it morphed into monsters under the bed even ‘Sub-human’ …they still use some if not all these definitions despite the toothless nature of their hysteria but they have no plan B they are perplexed and they are now so shit scared they want to kill it dead where before they could just ignore it because the pastors and ministers said it was a mental aberration, even burn or ostracise it they are convinced their god demands no less…or rather they have been told their god demands no less.

    Thing is so scared are they and so incapable of either integrity or honesty they pretend their remedy is in fact the remedy of the ‘enemy’ …this is the conflict they suffer, they are told murder is a sin, but if it is committed against them it means they are the martyr just like their mythical hero, this appeals on so many levels, it is what they seek and it is the remedy to the conflict within…so projection in all its rampant glory

    But, but..those aren’t TROO Atheists! They’re really KKKristians who are just PISSED at GOD cuz he gave ME more of his all encompassing eternal egalitarian LUV then he gave THEM. So, yeah, they’re just angry KKKristians and they WILL burn in hell, 4EVAH!!

    I notice that he uses passive constructions like “some are concerned” but never expresses “I am concerned” that way he can express the most vile of ideas without having to “own” them.

    This.
    These people are such moral cowards that they will not admit their own beliefs, even as they condemn others for not sharing them.
    .
    Well, Federer, here is what I think: you are cowardly, hateful, superstitious and proud of your ignorance. You are an arrogant but weak authoritarian. Altogether a disagreeable, dishonorable, and thoroughly distasteful fellow.
