There are few things more infuriating in this world than angry, radical millennials attempting to convert everyone on the planet to their own misguided ideologies.
Often, this perverse reimagining of reality comes to us from purely political circles. The radical left pokes and prods their way through life, attempting to lure any unsuspecting possible opponent into a loaded conversation in order to signal their own virtues with a carefully cultivated strings of keywords. “Triggered”, “micro aggression”, and “safe space” were the terms du jour during the political upheaval of the 2016 presidential election, for instance.
Another group whose tactics have evolved to similar levels of absurdity are the militant atheists that litter the nation.
While religious freedom is always in style, legally speaking, the way that these anti-religious groups often operate borders on bigotry at times. Atheists are a particularly prickly bunch who actively seek debate with the religious population in which they are in constant contact. They, too, have discovered that inflammatory accusations of intolerance are a surefire way to get their name on the marquee, so to speak. That is what this latest stunt involving an animal shelter is all about.
“Militant atheists have moved beyond just protesting Nativity scenes at government buildings and are now suing to prevent clergymen from blessing homeless animals at a humane society.
“According to NJ.com, the snowflake God-haters at American Atheists Inc. of Cranford, the guys who erect those charming anti-Christmas billboards every holiday season, are getting all hot and bothered by the annual blessing of the animals at the Bergen County Animal Shelter in New Jersey.
“In a federal suit, the group claimed the Teterboro shelter’s event, where a Franciscan reverend blesses the animals, violates the First and Fourteenth Amendments.”
Believe it or not, it gets even more ridiculous.
“A plaintiff in the lawsuit, Candice Yaacobi, claims she left her visit to the shelter traumatized after being forced to witness a priest blessing homeless animals.
“As a humanist atheist, being forced into an encounter with a member of clergy in order to avail herself of government services sent Candice the message that the BCAS and Bergen County regarded her as inferior to those citizens who happened to adhere to the favored religious view,’ the group wrote in its complaint.”
This is purely a publicity stunt by Candice and her organization in order to rally the Atheist troops around their organization.
They are simply drawing in complaints from the common-sense crowd that they will immediately regard as “intolerance”, therefore attempting to provoke a massive, bickering fight between the deeply rooted beliefs. These atheists are nothing more than real-life internet trolls who will stop at nothing to make a scene.
