Political columnist Andrew Bolt on Wednesday wrote a very interesting article about the Global Atheists Convention which was held in Melbourne.
He begins by saying that he’s never felt more like believing in the Christian God after attending the convention. He goes on to say that if the Christian God really is dead, then there is nothing to stop people acting like barbarians.
The vitriol unleashed by the atheists at the conference beggars belief. The Christian senator, Steve Fielding, was described as being “dumber than an earthworm”. A journalist tweeted that the conservative Opposition health spokesman had “the face of a rapist”.
Andrew Bolt finishes by asking why morally superior atheists insist on vilifying Christians, and that if this is what happens when God is taken out of the equation, then we should bring God back.
The irony of the whole situation is the existence of a moral atheist. Morality, and by extension, the laws that govern out society, came from God. If there is no higher power to whom we are responsible, there can be no right and wrong. It is truly then, every man for himself with the freedom to behave like ‘barbarians’, as Andrew Bolt points out.
