The Dark Side of the Age of Enlightenment

Last Thursday was National Prayer Day, and subsequently, the malcontents had to throw a hissy fit.  In response, the atheist at the American Humanist Association issued a proclamation designating the same as National Day of Reason.  Here are their instructions for activism:

Work to have a Day of Reason proclaimed by your state or local government;
Hold a press conference for your local media to promote respect for the separation of religion and government, and to draw attention to the many breaches of that principle during recent months;

Organize a letter-writing campaign urging your elected officials to support the separation of religion and government;
Visit the National Day of Reason web site to sign-up as an endorser, to view planned events, or to read some of the media coverage from previous years


Mayor Anthony Foxx of Charlotte decided to accommodate the heathens.  After all, the Democratic Party is infested with Christian haters.  And believe me, that’s what these people are. 

 The Humanist has bastardized history and our Constitution in an effort to silence and shame Christians.  They state the First Amendment dictates a separation of church and state, when in fact it does not.  The establishment clause was designed to ensure that the federal government could not establish a state sponsored religion by means of taxation; religion being Anglican, Baptist, Methodist, Congregational…, it did not mean the absence of Christian prayer at government meetings.  Anyone with a modicum knowledge of history would know this.

The Humanist has adopted the Age of Reason as their platform.  This epoch in history was said to have ended with the French Revolution.  We all know what a bloody affair that turned out to be.  Here is an excerpt from the book Citizens by Simon Schama:
But the most unruly demonstrations of dechristianizing zeal probably happened more or less spontaneously. When a regiment of the army, two thousand strong, arrived at Aurexxe en route to Lyon, for example, the cannoneers smashed in the church doors and mutilated images and statues of saints. A crucifix was taken from the chapel of Mary and paraded about upside down for citizens to spit on. When a local quarryman refused to do this, one of the soldiers cut off a part of his nose with his saber.

And given the opportunity, the Humanist would probably act like this malcontent:

More orderly forms of dechristianization were provided by such representanats-en-mission as the ex-Oratorian priest Fouche, who undertook a particularly enthusiastic campaign in the Nievre, where he stripped cemeteries of all religious symbols and posted on the gates his famous dictum “Death is but an eternal sleep.”

Contrast that with the American Revolution.  Despite what the Humanist say, the population was devoutly Christian.
One of the prominent philosophers of that age was David Hume.  Many believe his writings influenced Charles Darwin.  The Progressives have adopted Darwin’s evolutionary theory as a means to co-opt our Constitution rendering it a “living and breathing document,” and in doing so, they have abrogated our founding principles.  Even more sinister, is the programs that the Progressives have advocated such as eugenics and infanticide.  Some would say the Holocaust sprung from the Age of Reason:
