The Biden administration is raising up an army of atheist missionaries.
The government recently announced plans to fund a program that would send Americans abroad to promote atheism and humanism in South/Central Asia, North Africa and the Middle East.
The program would be funded by your tax dollars – as much as a half million dollars per organization.
They are literally going to use a government tithe to spread a godless message of hopelessness to the world.
Congressman Jim Banks, the Republican from Indiana, is demanding answers — writing in a letter to President Biden and Secretary of State Antony Blinken that it’s unconstitutional for the government to convert people to the atheist way of life.
He said it’s one thing to be tolerant and respectful of those who don’t believe in God.
“It is quite another for the United States government to work actively to empower atheists, humanists, non-practicing, and non-affiliated in public decision-making,” the letter read. “Any such program – for any religiously-identifiable group – in the United States would be unconstitutional.”
The idea that our tax dollars are being used to convert people to a godless, heathen lifestyle is appalling.
It’s just one more piece of the puzzle – as radical elements within our nation seek to undermine the religious foundation of our nation.
This is part of a much broader plan to destroy the Christian nature of our nation, as I wrote about in “Culture Jihad: How to Stop the Left From Killing a Nation.”
“A few weeks ago, the United States Embassy in Germany erected a ‘Black Lives Matter’ flag. Americans should be very alarmed at this. It’s not only that ‘Black Lives Matter’ remains a highly divisive and increasingly unpopular movement here in the United States; the display is also denoting a promotion of a specific radical organization. Other recent initiatives of the State Department include creating a ‘Special Representative for Racial Equity and Justice,’ whose mission will be to spread Critical Race Theory and other progressive dogmas worldwide, and working to remove restrictions on abortion around the globe.”
If the Left is able to remove God from the public square, shut down our churches and neutralize Christian influence in the culture, it paves the way for the godless communists to take over our nation.
“Americans rightly discern this as a part of the broader effort on the part of your administration to promote radical, progressive orthodoxy abroad” and highlighted that atheism ‘is an integral part of the belief system of Marxism and communism,'” Banks wrote.
Our God-blessed nation is once again being fundamentally transformed by godless Democrats.
First, they came for our guns and now they’re coming for our Bibles. Pay attention, Americans. Our country is under attack from within.
