IF this was International Nutters week, top prize should surely go to Pastor Mike Stahl of The Living Water Church in Miramar, Florida, for a dotty idea he proposed on the internet yesterday.
Pastor Mike, as he likes to call himself, is a former police officer who has been:
Â Seriously considering forming a (Christian ) grassroots type of organization to be named The Christian National Registry of Atheists or something similar.
Â I mean, think about it . There are already National Registrys (sic) for convicted sex offenders , ex-convicts , terrorist cells , hate groups like the KKK, skinheads , radical Islamists , etc.
Now comes the curious bit. When my attention was drawn to Pastor Mike’s lame, messy and badly-punctuated blog this morning, there was link on it to his Facebook page. From Facebook I learned that he’s an ex-cop – and while I was at it,Â I grabbed a picture picture of him.
But when I went back to Facebook this afternoon to see what else I could learn about him, the page had vanished, and so had the link on the pastor’s blog.
Anyway, back to mad Mike’s idea.
Â This type of “National Registry” would merely be for information purposes . To inform the public of KNOWNÂ (ie self-admitted) atheists â€¦
Now , many (especially the atheists), may ask “Why do this, what’s the purpose ?” Duhhh , Mr Atheist , for the same purpose many States put the names and photos of convicted sex offenders and other ex-felons on the I-Net – to INFORM the public ! I mean , in the City of Miramar, Florida, where I live , the population is approx 109,000. My family and I would sure like to know how many of those 109,000 are ADMITTED atheists!
Perhaps we may actually know some. In which case we could begin to witness to them and warn them of the dangers of atheism. Or perhaps they are radical atheists , whose hearts are as hard as Pharaoh’s , in that case , if they are business owners , we would encourage all our Christian friends , as well as the various churches and their congregations NOT to patronize them as we would only be “feeding” Satan.
The lunatic concludes:
Frankly , I don’t see why anyone would oppose this idea – including the atheists themselves (unless of course , they’re actually ashamed of their atheist religion , and would prefer to stay in the ‘closet.‘ )
PS: The underscoring is mine.
