‘Atheist invocations’ are oxymoronic

24 Aug

How can you have an ‘atheist invocation‘, when, according to atheist dogma, there is no supreme, creator being, and there are no deities, so therefore, who or what is being invoked in an ‘atheist invocation’?

Following the ruling, Dan Courtney of the Atheist Community of Rochester asked that he be allowed to present an invocation at an upcoming meeting, and was granted his request.

“We, as citizens, the beginning and the end, the alpha and the omega of our destiny are not, as the great philosopher Immanuel Kant warned, mere means to the ends of another, but we are ends in ourselves,” Courtney said during his invocation.

Ah; invocation and therefore worship of humanity; typical secular humanist…

They of course fail to realize that in doing this, they are no longer atheists, but have replaced worship of God with worship of humanity… Fools.

Of course, we know the real reason why they’re doing this: they simply want to push Christian witness entirely out of the public square, being hatetheists…

    If, in your ‘invocation’, you discuss us humans, you have elevated us to the status of gods, meaning you are placing us on that level. That means you have an idol, and your idolatry is of humanity. That means you aren’t atheists, nor even truly secular humanists – except that you’re not Christian humanists, as some have been. But you certainly are religious, with your own unquestionable dogmas, with your own deities – people.

    And if you seek to displace public expressions of Christianity, you’re a hatetheist – since we know damn well you’re the same type of people who would oppose Christian businesses excluding the business of those with whom they don’t want to do business.

    Reblogged this on Will S.' Culture War Blog and commented:

    The act of invocation means invoking a transcendent authority, petitioning or appealing to such. As per the definitions, usually this is a religious, prayerful act, invoking God.

    I wouldn’t have a problem in removing invocations from meetings altogether, rather than this tit-for-tat nonsense of “me-too-ism!” in the name of ‘inclusivity’, blah blah blah fishcakes, AND if the same progs would promise not to go after Christians running bakeries, photographers, etc. who don’t want homosexuals’ gay wedding business, etc.

    But the hatetheists want to have their cake and eat it too; they want to push us out, unless we conform, but they want in, in any form or guise. They’d rather see an invocation of Allah, or the Flying Spaghetti Monster, than of God.

    Yea I don’t get atheists when they act like this. I reckon it’s like kids trying to prove how cool they are sporting some new fashion ideal that’s supposed to shock the old folks

    I think it’s something like that, sfcton; I think they just want to piss us off.

    “I think it’s something like that, sfcton; I think they just want to piss us off.”

    I think it is revenge for having religion shoved down their throats and not being allowed to question. Hence they rebel by becoming Atheists and Hatetheist.

    I suppose. But how awful was it, having to hear the Lord’s Prayer at the start of a school morning, or a similar prayer at the start of a town council meeting? I call them whiners. Beta, mangina whiners.

    Exactly. And so they whine about ‘fairness’, ‘diversity’, and ‘inclusion’.

    Robespierre was an atheist too; look how tolerant and non-judgemental the Jacobin Republic was.

      That’s what happens when atheism is not merely individuals here and there in a sea of belief, but an organized system put into power; you get Robespierre and the Terror, and the same thing recurring under Marxism…
