Campus atheism will ‘morally confuse young people’

MEMBERS of the Faithful Soldier School of Evangelism near Milwaukee aren’t happy bunnies. For the last ten years this bunch of delusional screwballs have had access to the University of Wisconsin-Madison

To share the Gospel of Jesus Christ on campus.

But they are about to have competition, and this displeases them no end. According to this report, an atheist group at the  university is set to receive almost $70,000 of student fees to fund its programmes and events for the 2013-2014 school year.

Jason Storms, Director of the FSSOE, is deeply concerned:

It’s going to morally confuse young people in understanding their place in the universe. We’ve seen the rise of the secular state in the last century, [and] I don’t think it’s helpful to contribute to a worldview that [is based on humanism].

And the imbecile asked:

How has believing that there is no God contributed to our society?

Storms said that while he hopes that University of Wisconsin-Madison has an equal access policy that allows for funding to be provided just as freely to evangelical Christian groups, he still is saddened by the possible ramifications of furthering doubt and atheism. But he is not surprised at the decision.

It’s an extremely liberal school. Very left wing. Any Christian that goes to that school, their faith is under heavy attack.

The funding must still receive final approval from student council, the chancellor and the Board of Regents.

    $70k is a helluva lot of money. I wonder what the other groups get.

  2. David Anderson says:

    Of course it’s going to morally confuse young people. They might begine to realize their place in the universe and wonder why the religious scumbags have been lying to them.

  3. Stephen Mynett says:

    The nutbar desribes the school as very left wing. However,to the majority of Americans, Nick Clegg would be seen as a Communist.
    He also bemoans the rise of the secular state. I assume he is on about America, if he is, he should join with a lot of other Americans and learn the constitution.
    It is one of the great tragedies of the modern world that such a well written document has been peverted so often by people like this.

    Why doesn’t he move to somewhere right-wing, like his whinging mates who can’t handle losing an election?

  5. Broga says:

    For “morally confusing” read “result of critical thinking.” The christians just can’t cope with any challenge to religious brainwashing. And for the effects of that we have the example, in our own parish, of The Reverend Ken.

    Morally confusing? Like, learning some real moral values?

    ‘Campus atheism will morally confuse young people’ What a load of bollocks.

    What I hope it will do is give answers to why religion has continually failed in every respect on the subject of morals.

  8. Matt Westwood says:

    “morally confuse” = “question their political indoctrination” (because let’s face it, in Merka “religion” = “politics”). And that won’t do at all.

    How much I fantasise about getting into a physical fight with one of these guys, overpowering him with my superior physique, pinning him down and giving him a big slobbery snog.

    Jason Storms: J moans SS rot.

    And here was me thinking moral confusion ran something like: God shagging a woman (out of wedlock, against God’s own commandments), who gives birth to God, who gets sacrificed to God, and this sacrifice somehow magically enables people to be redeemed of a sin that God himself had endowed them with by virtue of their ancestors eating some fruit, which gave them the ability to tell good from evil, so that they could know that it was bad to eat the fruit…

    But no, I take it back. The message “think for yourself” is obviously much more confusing.

    “It’s going to morally confuse young people in understanding their place in the universe”

    Not thinking the entire universe was created for you by some magic fairy is “confusing”? Bring it on.

    “How has believing that there is no God contributed to our society?”

    Considering secular/atheist societies have lower rates of violent crime, STDs, poverty, racism, sexism, homophobia, infant mortality, inequality and other social ills I’d say quite a bit.

    (slobbery snog)…ok. what does this mean in USA? I think I know but would not wish to guess.

    As for the Atheist group receiving money…I say GOOD! I would like to see other Atheist groups receive money to counter George W Bush’s “Faith Based Initiative”, which basically gives a % of all American’s tax dollars to Christian groups to force their belief upon everyone.

    Well said Daz

    Sorry: “slobbery snog” = “wet kiss”

    A similar case of religious sophistry, but this time they’ve been caught out: http://arstechnica.com/science/2012/11/nprs-science-friday-goes-after-creationist-mimic/?comments=1

    (Sorry: “slobbery snog” = “wet kiss”)

    Don’t be sorry Matt, I’m very much interested in the slight differences in our language usage since both are said to be “English”.

    Thanks for answering…and it is what I had thought it would mean.

    Apparently, donations are drying up all round. What’s the matter – aren’t these Christians praying hard enough?

    ‘FSSOE?
    Shouldn’t that be ‘O, FFS!’

    Maybe that God don’t answer prayers for the sick so throw away your leaches, blood letting, and beating the demon out of people and get some “human” medicine to cure your ailment. And no god no worries about building a building 7 miles high to peek over the clouds at god.(as if people could and god was worried)Now Send a spaceship to another planet or the edge of the universe different tongue, no problem. 2000 years of god or 200 years of man which has been better for the world? Kids are confused when you tell them their is no santa but they out grow it quick.

  19. Matt Westwood says:

    “Kids are confused when you tell them their is no santa but they out grow it quick.”

    Not all of them. I was in conversation with a Floridian lady in her fifties one time who was tearfully indignant when I suggested that Santa Claus was made up. She appeared, genuinely, to believe in his actual existence. I think that’s about the time that I gave up on the US as a place of rational sensibility.

    People like this delusional jackass fail to understand that “higher education” is the place to QUESTION EVERYTHING. What a dumb fucking asshole. On top of that, the answer to his question is this “99.9% scientific probability that there is nothing supernatural, including your fake deity.”

    Morally confuse young people? I wonder what his definition of ‘moral’ is.
