Knoxville Bows to Atheists

Atheists who don’t believe in God are preoccupied with God. Douglas Wilson has stated.

“There are two tenets of atheism. One, there is no God. Two, I hate Him.”

The Freedom of Religion Foundation (FFRF) has once again shown their hate for God. Don’t ever believe that atheists don’t know God. They do know God. They suppress the truth of that knowledge in unrighteousness (Rom. 1:18-23). They hate it when Christians remind them of this truth. They do what those who stoned Stephen to death after he told them the truth:

“Now when they heard this, they were cut to the quick, and they began gnashing their teeth at him … and covered their ears … and thy went on stoning Stephen” (Acts 7:54, 57, 59).

Instead of throwing stones, the FFRF files lawsuits. The latest legal stone was thrown at the city of Knoxville, TN, for the display of a plaque with Romans 8:31 written on it that was displayed at the Knoxville Police Department employee entrance.

“What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?”

Not anymore. The Mayor has caved into the demands of the FFRF:

“In her prepared remarks, Mayor Rogero said, “We are not aware of any complaints or issues raised in recent history by KPD staff or members of the public. It has become part of KPD tradition, providing strength and comfort to our officers as they perform their daily – and often dangerous – duties.”

“I know that people both inside and outside City government are upset with this ending of a tradition,” she added. “As a person of faith, I understand and respect the passion that people feel for this issue.”

As a consolation, Rogero said in a statement the piece will be moved to a new “Hall of Inspiration” at KPD’s headquarters in the Safety Building, “along with other inspirational writings from a variety of faiths and philosophers.” (Tennessee Star)

Here’s what should have happened…
