Secularism: Atheists, Agnostics & the Non-religious; Part 2

This Part 2 explores and examines the Secularists and Christian Agendas; and how leaders and activists of the secularists and atheists have and seek to overturn and change the original intentions of organization founders and conformed public schools, universities and even private charitable or non-profit organizations into their image of righteous or according to their purposes.  Most secularists and weak minded Christians who desire a separation of religion from state funded programs (namely educational) do not care for justice, fairness or the original intent and practices of their government.  Ten goals are listed in the following Agenda of each group; not necessarily in order of importance.  TheTruthSource is not saying these are the goals and agenda of everyone in the group; but it is the drive and direction of their leaders, speakers and activists.

SECULARISTS AGENDA (Atheists, Agnostics and Non-Religious)
  1. To remove the Lord God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Scriptures from the public.
  2. To increase their own numbers and prevent public religious conversions.
  3. To remove specific Religions from their lives, their community, country and the world.
  4. To change the original intent of organizations according to their purposes.
  5. To promote freedom of choice and speech according to their morals.
  6. To use lawsuits to gain their goals.
  7. To use media to gain their goals.
  8. To use the government to administrate their morals and goals.
  9. To use the public schools and universities to teach their morals and goals.
SECULARISTS AGENDA (Atheists, Agnostics and Non-Religious)
  1. To remove the Lord God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Scriptures from the public: The range of emotion here is from not caring about the issue at all, to not wanting Jesus and the Bible taught in public, and to those that hate the name of Christ Jesus and hate God. But it is ‘the squeaky wheel that get the grease;’ it is the activists publicly complaining, lobbying congress, filing lawsuits and continuing pushing that drive the agendas.

Cross-compressed.jpgAbout 2006 a mother died in a car crash in Oregon; and at that time her children put up a simple CROSS memorial to her; and according to the Mayor of Salem, “her children… have maintained it ever since (her) accident 10 or 12 years ago.”   June 2017, the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), with their 700 members in Oregon (one of the most non-religious states in the U.S.; Portland – 42% atheist, agnostic or no religion; but still has over 1.5 million Christians) sent a letter to the Mayor.  It stated because the ‘Cross… is the principal symbol of Christianity around the world’ ‘…It is blatantly unconstitutional for the City of Salem to display a patently religious symbol like a Christian cross on a public roadside.”  This is a typical – no mercy – ungodly statement.  What if the children of the dead mother were standing their holding a cross; or what if it was around their neck?

What about in Paris or Brussels; should those mourning loved ones and respecting their fellow countrymen take down candles and crosses?


It is well known that lighting candles is a religious act; especially by Catholics.


And what about praying in public – surely that is more ‘blatant’ than a simple cross?  Or is that only allowed after terrorist attacks and intense situations?  Or is it a “FREEDOM” of religious expressions understood by the farmers of their constitutions?  France’s 1905 Separation of the Churches and State law grant both “freedom of conscience” and “the free exercise of religion.”  And though the Constitution of 1958 states “France shall be …secular… (and) declares no allegiance to the Catholic Church or Christian religion” it adds, “it shall respect all beliefs.”  (But 2/3rds of the French are atheists or non-religious; so who knows what “freedoms” they will allow in the future.)  In the United States, history shows that since the time of the 13 colonies that America was a “Christian nation,” but after almost 200 years of the Bible, pray, God and Jesus Christ being taught in many public schools; a forced wall of separation came up regardless of State Rights and community desires – and the floodgates of lawsuits against God followed.


According to the Secular Coalition For America (2017; website), “Michael Newdow is best-known for his U.S. Supreme Court case Elk Grove Unified School District v. Newdow (2004), challenging the words “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance. That case resulted in a “firestorm of controversy” when the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals found that the phrase constituted an endorsement of religion, and therefore violated the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment. This decision, however, was overruled when the Supreme Court determined, 5-3, that Newdow lacked “prudential standing” to bring the case.”

Now their “18 voting coalition member organizations …501(c)(3) non-profits who serve atheists, agnostics, humanists, freethinkers and other nontheistic Americans…” (who don’t serve God; but seek to) “strengthen the secular character of our government,” led by an ALL WHITE Board of Directors and ALL WHITE Board of Advisors (including Richard Dawkins), are with Newdow, suing to remove “In God We Trust” from American coins and public.

Newdow is arguing that “In God We Trust” violates the “separate but equal” Cause by allowing the word “GOD” and the reference to HIM and Religion on public governmental currency.  It has appeared on coins for over a century and became the National Motto in 1956.  It is in part from The Star-Spangled Banner (1812) which became the National Anthem in 1931 – back when our AMERICAN Ancestors in Government “confessed God before men” and did not “fear man… but rather God (Matt. 10:28; 32).”  Typically, only the first stanza is sung at events (“Oh, say can you see…”), but the song says in the fourth stanza, “…Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n rescued land; Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.  Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just, And this be our motto: ‘In God is our trust.’  And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave; O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!”

Currently, the U.S. Supreme Court is following the long held the Decisions that official references to God are historical, not theological.  In 2010, the Court threw out Newdow’s action.  The Ninth Circuit held that “In God We Trust” is of a “patriotic or ceremonial character” and does not have a “theological or ritualistic impact;” and nor does it constitute “governmental sponsorship of a religious exercise.”

Though ‘Christian’ nations are becoming more non-religious and anti-God; may still have such National Anthems: “O Canada! …God keep our land glorious and free!” The Swiss Psalm in 4 languages says, “…Thou, O Lord, appear in their light.”  And God Bless Fiji and God Defend New Zealand are among others.

The people and governments of EVERY NATION in the World at one time or another followed spiritual beliefs.  And when those outside of certain countries in Asia (mainly China and India) heard of the God of Abraham – they believed and honored Him.

So back to the CROSS issue, what is the next target – Arlington National Cemetery (public land in the United States) or the Normandy American Cemetery in France or nation’s flags?

  1. To increase their own numbers.

Most non-religious people, including atheists, are content with not arguing or caring about the religious practices of those around them if it is not pushed in there face.  Pew Research Center’s 2014 Religious Landscape Study reported that “just one-in-ten atheists (9%) share their views of God and religion; and… 65% say they seldom or never discuss their views on religion with religious people.” For most, it is because they cannot support their false position.  Nevertheless, for ‘the faithful,’ whether Christians, Muslims or Secularists – especially atheists – they all want to increase their numbers.

The Christian faithful because they know it is the will of God that “He does not want anyone to perish (in Hell), but wants everyone to come to repentance (and eternal life; 2 Peter 3:9);” and “a wise person wins souls (saves lives; Proverbs 11:30; for several reasons).”  And the Muslim seeks to increases their number; whether like ISIS many of their people are Forced to be Muslim; or in that some sincerely believe in their Quran.  As for the Atheists, the authentic activists knows that there is strength in numbers; and they love their arrogant faithful believes and see Religious as the upmost ignorance and want everyone to see it their way – is the light of their assumed brilliant ethics and scientific truths – many of which are less than theories.

Some secularists complain about Church Non-profits asking for donations and spreading their beliefs but most of their groups online do the exact same, including: American Atheists (172 local affiliates; 392,000 members) from Seattle Atheists (250 members) and a dozen chapters in California to Boston Atheists (1,000+ members) and a dozen chapters in Florida.   The same can be said for the European Humanist Federation (EHF) in Brussels, which according to their website, “was created in 1991 and unites more than 60 humanist and secularist organisations from about 20 European countries.”  Though the EHF states that “we think that it is vital that freedom of religion and belief be defended, along with all human rights: humanists, atheists and agnostics…” most of their groups, such as Humanists UK just want to “bring non-religious people together to develop their own views.”

The IHEU, International Humanist and Ethical Union, states, “IHEU is the global representative body of the humanist movement, uniting a diversity of non-religious organisations and individuals… founded in Amsterdam in 1952… headquartered in London… incorporated in New York.”   The IHEU represents “the humanists movement at the United Nations and other International bodies and promotes humanist values within the world community.”  “At the UN… the IHEU representation …takes an active part in the NGO Committee on Freedom of Religion and Belief.”  The IHEU “members include more than 130 humanist, rationalist, secular, ethical culture, atheist and freethought organizations in more than 50 countries… the Executive Committee are accepting applications (from ‘groups’) to join IHEU…”

According to the IHEU’s Annual Report 2015, “Aim 1: Successful and sustainable Member Organizations in every part of the world.  We provide funding, training, intellectual resources and other support to stimulate, encourage and foster new and emerging humanist and other relevant organizations…”  Not exactly neutral – they fund and support ‘relevant organizations’ that align with their ideas.  For example, they support “secondary school training, for humanist and secularist education to school children and relevant book publication.”  Their ‘Aim 2’ is to ‘network together as a coordinated global movement.’  And though the IHEU “in 2015 had (only) 228 individual annual supporters,” it is allowed such a big voice in the UN.

Rationalist International, headquartered in Finland, says “it was started in 1995 in India… it organizes conferences, lectures, youth camps and workshops… it aims at connecting together rationalists, humanists, freethinkers, skeptics, atheists and secularists.  Rationalism is a world view based on scientific attitude and a humane value system free from any religion, dogma and arbitrary assumption of authority…” Evidently, ‘arbitrary’ means any subjective group not elected by the public (although most don’t support that either – as in the case of U.S. President Donald Trump) or formed or approved by such ‘freethinkers’ and ‘secularists.’  This group was formed by Indian Rationalist Association, which was founded in 1949 and has over 100,000 members.

Now, as previously revealed in polls and studies, the vast majority of secularists are not concerned with the views of those around them; however, their mainstream activists desire to prevent public religious conversions and freedom of religious thought.   They have sued to not allow the Bible taught in Public Schools as a matter of History and for groups such as the Gideon’s to not be able to OFFER Bibles to students would are willing or wanting to accept them with no coercion or preaching.  Yet, they want their agendas and ideas taught in the Public Schools.

I am sure if it was a sign of the public roadside saying, “Freethinkers and Atheists Rally…” they would beam with excitement and pride; but a simple cross memorial is too much to be allowed.  And their discrimination of what such be allowed is inconsistent as well – which is addressed in the next section.

  1. To remove specific Religions from their lives, their community, country and the world.

Some secularists and atheists desire to remove specific religions from the world.  Although, most do not care what others do as long as it is not pushed on them or their family; some detest Christianity.  Prof. Richard Dawkins has mocked Christianity for years, and it was rare to find anyone in the mainstream media or in secular-atheism society to speak against that.  However, when he spoke against Islam he was disinvited to Berkeley’s KPFA radio event in August 2017.

July 2017, News reported, “Richard Dawkins’ Berkeley event canceled for ‘Islamophobia’.”  The renowned atheist evolutionary biologist was to speak about his 2017 book, Science in the Soul… but had called Islam evil and that crossed the line.  Berkeley posted, “…KPFA does not endorse hurtful speech.  While KPFA emphatically supports serious free speech, we do not support abusive speech…”  Note, KPFA had invited him and has invited many others that have spoken against Christianity.

In response, Dawkins posted on his website an ‘Open Letter from Richard Dawkins’ saying in part: “ I have called IslamISM “vile” but surely you, of all people, understand that Islamism is not the same as Islam… Far from attacking Muslims, I understand – as perhaps you do not – that Muslims themselves are the prime victims of the oppressive cruelties of Islamism, especially Muslim women.  I am known as a frequent critic of Christianity and have never been de-platformed for that. Why do you give Islam a free pass? Why is it fine to criticize Christianity but not Islam?”

The American Atheists was founded by Madalyn O’Hair, who sued Baltimore public schools (Schempp v. Abington School Dist; 1963) for the removal of Bible reading and prayer from public schools.   The American Atheists outright stated in their Agenda (2007): “to secure our freedom from religion… and absolute separation of church and state.”

  1. To change the original intent of organizations according to their purposes.

Certain secular activists desire to change the original intent of organizations to fit their beliefs and ideology.   This can be seen in ‘Christian LGBT churches,’ AA, the YMCA and the Scouts.

Quasi ‘Christian’ organizations that are seeking to change centuries of religion position and doctrines include the Association of Welcoming and Affirming Baptists, certain United Methodist Churches, United Church of Christ, Reformation Lutheran, the Episcopal Church and Anglican Churches who seek full inclusion of homosexuals regardless of fornication and sexual immorality.  And as for most Unitarians – they are not even a Christian religion anymore.

Tremendous pressure and lawsuits came against the YMCA (Young Men’s Christian Association) – now called ‘the Y’ so as not to emphasis the original ‘Christian’ essence.  In 2016, the Y, which receives much public and government funding, issued new Guidelines which supported ‘transgender bathrooms’ for larger YMCAs.  It no longer has an original Christian heart to bring salvation along with health; it now seeks as said by the President of Metro Chicago’s YMCA, Mr. Malone, “…it’s our goal for all member to thrive at the Y… we will do our best to support each of you while maintaining an environment that reflects the inclusive values we share.”  But true Christians don’t share the belief that a transsexual boy such be relieving himself (regardless of his self-identity) in front of a young girl (or any girl).

Over 100 years ago the YMCA youth and staff worked side by side with Churches, such as at D.L. Moody’s Northfield Conferences.  As an unpaid staff ‘city missionary’ D.L. Moody and others were ‘employed’ by the YMCA to reach young men, in part according to, did so by “providing a Sunday school class for Chicago’s children and the local Young Men’s Christian Association.”

Likewise, after the same tactics were used against the Boy Scouts, (that is the LGBT and such seculars do not want to go form and found their own YLGBTsA or LGBTScouts – they want to conform all others, regardless to the Founders’ intent to freedom of religion – which was supported by the government and exercised for over two centuries.  So after more than a century of original practice, the Boy Scouts of America was coerced to accept gay and transgendered boys – regardless to their influence on the other 99.9% of the boys that parents entrusted to the BSA.    In 2013, the BSA ended its ban on openly gay youths; and in 2015 ended its ban on an openly gay adult leaders; and in 2017 –pushed by the LGBT, and secularists such as Scouts for Equality, the BSA now accepts transgenderism.   President Trump’s Sec. of State, Rex Tillerson was President of the Boy Scouts in 2010/11 (while CEO of ExxonMobil) and on the Executive Board in 2013; he was one of the leaders who influenced the change on the approximate 2.2 million boys ages 7 to 20.

And now: “AA Agnostica a space for AA agnostics, atheists and freethinkers worldwide… is meant to be a helping hand for the alcoholic who reaches out to Alcoholics Anonymous for help and finds that she or he is disturbed by the religious content of many AA meetings.”

Logic often takes a back seat to feelings (emotions) and political correctness.  The questions are not what gets the best results for the groups and what are the rights on its foundational goals, but is someone offended.  Moreover, these ‘freethinkers’ don’t want to just have their own organizations; they want to change others that don’t “FREE-THINK” like them.

History usually matters. (2017) states in its ‘Historical Data:’ “A.A. had its beginnings in, as the outcome of a meeting between …a stockbroker and …a surgeon.  Both had been hopeless alcoholics.  Prior to that time, Bill and Dr. Bob had each been in contact with the Oxford Group, a mostly nonalcoholic fellowship that emphasized universal spiritual values in daily living.  In that period, the Oxford Groups in America were headed by the noted Episcopal clergyman, Dr. Samuel Shoemaker.   Under this spiritual influence, and with the help of a old-time friend… Bill had gotten sober… Dr. Bob’s Oxford Group membership … had not helped him enough to achieve sobriety.  When Dr. Bob and Bill finally met… Bill emphasized that alcoholism was a malady of mind, emotions and body.  This all-important fact he had learned from Dr. William Silkworth of Towns Hospital in New York… Though a physician, Dr. Bob had not known alcoholism to be a disease.  Responding to Bill’s convincing ideas, he soon got sober, never to drink again.  The founding spark of A.A. had been struck.  …Though the name Alcoholics Anonymous had not yet been coined, these three men made up the nucleus of the first A.A. group.  In the Fall of 1935, a second group of alcoholics… a third in 1939… (after) 4 years… 100 sober alcoholics in the three founding groups.  Early 1939, the Fellowship published its basic textbook, Alcoholics Anonymous… the core …Twelve Steps of recovery.”

In the Second Edition of The Twelve Traditions of AA, Bill writes:

Lack of power, that was our dilemma. we had to find a power by which we could live, and it had to be a Powe r greater than ourselves. Obviously. But where and how were we to find this Power? Well, that’s exactly what this book is about. Its main object is to enable you to find a Power greater than yourself which will solve your problem. That means we have written a book which we believe to be spiritual as well as moral. And it means, of course, that we are going to talk about God. Here difficulty arises with agnostics. Many times we talk to a new man and watch his hope rise as we discuss his alcoholic problems and explain our fellowship. But his face falls when we speak of spiritual matters, especially when we mention God, for we have re-opened a subject which our man thought he had neatly evaded or entirely ignored.

The Twelve Traditions (The Long Form) 2.–For our group purpose there is but one ultimate authority–a loving God as He may express Himself in our group conscience.  5.–Each Alcoholics Anonymous group ought to be a spiritual entity HAVING BUT ONE PRIMARY PURPOSE–that of carrying its message to the alcoholic who still suffers.  6.–Problems of money, property, and authority may easily divert us from our primary spiritual aim. We think, therefore, that any considerable property of genuine use to A.A. should be separately incorporated and managed, thus dividing the material from the spiritual. An A.A. group, as such, should never go into business.   8.–Alcoholics Anonymous should remain forever nonprofessional. We define professionalism as the occupation of counseling alcoholics for fees or hire. But we may employ alcoholics where they are going to perform those services for which we might otherwise have to engage nonalcoholics…  But our usual A.A. “12th Step” work is never to be paid for.  10.–No A.A. group or member should ever, in such a way as to implicate A.A., express any opinion on outside controversial issues–particularly those of politics, alcohol reform, or sectarian religion. The Alcoholics Anonymous groups oppose no one…  12.–And finally, we of Alcoholics Anonymous believe the principle of Anonymity has an immense spiritual significance. It reminds us that we are to place principles before personalities; that we are actually to practice a genuine humility. This to the end that our great blessings may never spoil us; that we shall forever live in thankful contemplation of Him who presides over us all.

…Most of us think this awareness of a Power greater than ourselves is the essence of spiritual experience. Our more religious members call it “God-consciousness.”

  1. To promote freedom of choice and speech according to their morals.

Whether a secular or progressive Christian organization, or an atheists organization, the leaders of most of these groups promote freedom of choice and speech when its parallels their positions; but are against them when it promotes pure Christianity in public (or private for some).

  1. To use lawsuits to gain their goals.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation, who is having its 40th convention in 2017, states it has “more than 29,500 members” and that it “works as an effective state/church watchdog and voice for freethought (atheism, agnosticism, skepticism).”  Yet the methods of FFRF go beyond their goal ‘to educate the public on matters relating to nontheism.’  And they are more than one of their local motto’s, “FFRF – Proudly ‘Professional pains in the ass since 1978.’  They use numerous law suits (as the ‘Church’ of Scientology did vs. the IRS to get Tax exempt status) to push the Courts from freedom of religion and speech to their ideology.  The won suits: causing the removal of the 10 Commandments from a PA school district; forced Indiana to end support for ‘first chaplaincy for state workers ever set up in the nation;’ ended post in Wisconsin to create a state coordinator to ‘assist’ clergy; overturned a Good Friday holiday; ended prayer at several universities (1 after 122 years of practice); and had painting of Jesus removed from an Ohio school.

The FFRF states (2017): “The Foundation has taken and won more challenges of the “faith-based initiative” than any other national group to date.  The national Foundation has brought more than 85 First Amendment lawsuits since 1977, and keeps several Establishment law challenges in the courts at all times.”  Likewise, American Atheists seek to end religion in public (2017, ‘About Us’) “by using every tool available to us, including our nation’s legal system…”

  1. To use media to gain their goals.

American Atheists state (2017; ‘About Us’) that “by working with coalition partners… the voices of atheists are always heard in communities throughout the nation, in politics and in the media.”  FFRF has an entire section of their staff and website dedicated to working with the media to promote their agenda.  The use Radio, conventions, books, toll-free numbers, online articles, etc. to reach the youth of America and anyone else they can.  Yes, many religious lobby groups and churches do the same; the point is both are fighting to speak to children in public schools and the secular agenda is winning.   2017 in New Mexico, the FFRF moved Clovis Freshman Academy to paint over a dove, anchor and the verse Hebrews 6:19.  Creationism is pushed out of schools; while evolution is taught, although with new texts for elementary schools supporting same-sex marriage.

  1. To use the government to administrate their morals and goals.

Along with legalized same-sex marriage came more national and community grant funders.   But more important is getting the government to follow your ideology and studies – such as the flawed Kinsey studies that changed Criminal laws.  And likewise, as seen in the next section – GLSEN and others; who gained position to tell Public Schools the method of handling the LGBT students, which NARTH and other Christian based programs, such as Gay-conversion therapy.  But the hypocrisy is that the LGBT gets to say how all students will be guided; the Christians have no say in such programs.  And when the Dr. Oz Show tried even to debate the issue, in 2012, GLSEN came against them.    One of their first acts was to get the APA, AMA, School Social Work Assoc., Interfaith Alliance (pro-LGBT), AAP, ACA, NEA and others on board with their Just the Facts about Sexual Orientation and Youth: A Primer for Principals, Educators and School Personnel (2008).

  1. To use the public schools and universities to teach their morals and goals.

GLSEN (1990) an arm for the LGBT community has succeeded in getting support and compliance from nearly all the Fortune 500 companies, as well as most public school districts.  It started with small battles; then gay marriage in 1 state; then all states and many nations; and now their agenda to the children.  For example GLSEN’s: Guide to Being an Ally to LGBT Students; their National Center for Transgender Equality with Federal Grants (2003); Model District Policy on Transgender and Gender Nonconforming Students (2016); 2015 National School Climate Survey; Safe Space Kit; Guide to Meeting with Administrators, School Board Members, and Other Decision-makers; Heather Has Two Mommies; LGBT Pride Month Guide for Educators; and Back to School Guide for Educators.   The brochure on How you get AIDS from immoral sex does not come until they reach the Doctor of Internal Medicine & ID.

  1. To do the will of Almighty God and our Lord Jesus Christ (Mark 3:35).
  2. To obey the Holy Commandments of God “for our own good (Deut. 10:13).”
  3. To “love the Lord God and service Him (Deut. 10:12; Mark 12:30; etc.).”
  4. To “love our neighbor (Matt. 22:39; Mark 12:31).”
  5. To seek to live ‘holy’ and ‘repent’ from ‘willful sin (1 Thes. 4:3-8; Matt. 4:17).’
  6. To “go and make disciples of Jesus Christ in all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19).”
  7. To “go… into the entire world …preaching and teaching the commands and gospel of Jesus Christ to everyone (Matt. 28:20; Mark 16:15).”
  8. To teach “True Religion (James 1:27);” and the “words of eternal life (John6:68)” from the “inspired scripture” in the Bible which “is profitable for doctrine (2Tim.3:16).”
  9. To tell of “the hope of the resurrection of the dead (Acts 23:6).”
  10. To tell that Jesus will come to “judge the living and the dead (2 Tim. 4:1; Nicene Creed)

The Christian Agenda is straight forward – to follow the will of God and the Holy Scriptures.  For the Atheists they make technology, self or others their idols; but for the true Christian, they see judgment coming on the world and must bring forth the Gospel of Jesus Christ – the only salvation for mankind.  This does not mean that we force our ideas or denominations on mankind; but it does mean we can not remain silent.  We hear the Lord say, “go forth and make” followers of Christ; we hear Jesus say, “Whoever acknowledges/confesses Me before others, I will acknowledge before My Father in Heaven; but whoever denies Me before others; I will deny before God and the angels in Heaven (Matt. 10:32-33; Luke 12:8).”
