Chuck Norris does not believe in a vast atheist conspiracy. Moreover, no one is trying, at a national level, to "outlaw" Christianity.
- You are incorrect. I refer you to the two articles linked in the footnotes written by Mr. Norris ("How to outlaw Christianity" part 1 and parts 2 & 3) in which he lays out his case for both an Atheist conspiracy to take over our civilization and to outlaw Christianity though legislation and other more devious means. This is vital work that Mr. Norris is doing, and will very well be what future generations will remember him most for. Dr. Richard Paley 17:17, 22 June 2007 (EDT)
Why has the text in the second paragraph been changed from "worked" to "joked about working"? This change makes no sense. Did DanH not read the articles in question where Mr. Norris explained in detail his case for the Atheist conspiracy to undermine our society? This is no joke, rather a serious problem that Mr. Norris takes very seriously. It's bad enough that Liberals have seized upon Mr. Norris to make him the butt of their juvenile jokes, we don't need Conservatives to start trivializing his important work as a public advocate for change in a society that is increasingly hostile to Christians. Please fix this mischaracterization. Dr. Richard Paley 01:14, 26 June 2007 (EDT)

I'd never heard about this issue, but did a little research. I think Mr. Norris is genuinely concerned about the loss of faith in America, but I don't think he actually believes there some sort of malignant conspiracy to promote atheism, nor would I believe he'd really forcibly deport or tattoo anyone. That's my opinion. Maestro 11:09, 26 June 2007 (EDT)
- I am sorry, but I genuinely do not understand the lack of understanding of Mr. Norris' position being expressed here. In the two articles of his in question, he documents Atheists working in concert and through subterfuge to outlaw Christianity and convert our nation to Atheism. How is that not a "malignant conspiracy "? Here are the steps he lays out:
- Step 1 is to "[i]nitiate restrictions and legislation against theism and Christianity". This is done through lawsuits against public religious expression and silencing individual Christians under the guise of so-called "hate crime" laws.
- Step 2 is to "[t]arget younger generations with atheism". This involves "intentionally preying" on the "innocence and naïveté" of our children to "remove any residue of theism from their minds and hearts"..
- Step 3 is to "[p]ackage and promote atheism as reasonable and scientific", This involves perverting science in order to claim it disproves God.
- Mr. Norris is not joking about these things, and to knowingly mischaracterize him as doing so is to bear false witness against an honorable man. I ask the system operators to please reconsider the recent edit which, intentional or not, has exactly that effect. Dr. Richard Paley 21:09, 26 June 2007 (EDT)
I like Chuck Norris he's one of America's most underated actors. If anyone ever deserved an Oscar its this guy

Does he really deserve an academy award?
He's only been in a handful of good movies, and his acting isn't all that great. You could argue that "Walker, Texas Ranger" deserved an Emmy award, due to its high popularity, but then again it was only popular for its camp appeal. Mel Gibson has been showered with awards by the academy despite him being conservative. In conclusion I suggest removing that the remark about the academy refusing to acknowledge Chuck's acting talent. It was probably added as a joke in the first place.
