Atheism and sarcasm

From Conservapedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Atheists in the Western World do have a reputation of whining and engaging in sarcasm (see: Atheist whining).

Charlotte Allen wrote in her article No God, no reason, just whining which as published in the Los Angeles Times: "What atheists don’t seem to realize is that even for believers, faith is never easy in this world of injustice, pain and delusion. Even for believers, God exists just beyond the scrim of the senses. So, atheists, how about losing the tired sarcasm and boring self-pity and engaging believers seriously?"[1]

North Korean, state atheism and ban on sarcasm

Sketch of Kim Jong-un

North Korea practices state atheism and belief in God is actively discouraged.[2] Open Doors, an organization based in the United States, has put North Korea at the very top of its list of countries where Christians face significant persecution - for 12 years in a row.[3]

Tina Nguyen wrote about North Korea at Vanity Fair:

Kim Jong Un just can’t take a joke. The last time the North Korean dictator found himself on the receiving end of some gentle ribbing, as the subject of James Franco and Seth Rogen’s assassination comedy The Interview, Kim’s repressive regime allegedly hacked Sony Pictures, apparently in retaliation. Now, the absolutist leader is taking his hostility toward humor to a farcical new extreme, banning all sarcasm throughout the Hermit Kingdom in an attempt to crack down on dissent and quash any further laughs at his expense.[4]

The Finnish news organization Gbtimes says about North Korea in their article Laughing at the humorless, "No one really knows anything about North Korea, except that it’s a funny country where hardly anyone ever laughs."[5]

South Korean officials became aware of a horrific practice of eating aborted fetuses after Seoul Broadcasting System showed a documentary on Chinese doctors who performed abortions and then ate the fetuses. One Chinese doctor on the documentary took out fetuses from his refrigerator.[6]

In 2014, The Washington Times reported:

China’s one child policy, baby trafficking, and sex trafficking of North Korean women aren’t the worst human rights violation happening in the country. Aborting innocent and healthy unborn children and eating them to boost one’s stamina and sexual health is.

South Korean customs officials recently seized thousands of pills filled with powdered human baby flesh arriving from China. Since August 2011, South Korean officials have intercepted more than 17000 pills smuggled from China.

When the various moral failings of atheists/atheist population is mentioned or the morality of atheists is questioned, many atheists sarcastically mention atheists eating babies which they apparently think is not happening. In most cases, there are not familiar with baby flesh powder being consumed by individuals in atheist controlled mainland China nor are they aware of instances of children being eaten in countries which have or have had state atheism (see: Soviet Union and cannibalism and North Korea and cannibalism). And as noted above, "South Korean officials became aware of a horrific practice of eating aborted fetuses after Seoul Broadcasting System showed a documentary on Chinese doctors who performed abortions and then ate the fetuses. One Chinese doctor on the documentary took out fetuses from his refrigerator.[8]

For example, the atheist Eric Ouellet wrote an essay entitled Time to stop respecting religion which was posted at the Freedom From Religion Foundation website that stated "Imagine the reaction if something like that were said about Christians. Rather than feel insulted... atheist commenters 'agreed' that atheists are fat because they eat so many babies."[9] See also: Atheism and obesity

The atheist Dan Amira published an article at the website of New York Magazine which sarcastically stated about his fellow atheists: "Or maybe they’re just too busy eating babies and having blood-soaked sex orgies to be bothered by your meddlesome proselytizing, Pastor Mike. Did you ever think of that?"[10]
