Secular Activists Tackle Agenda Religiously

December 11, 2020

Like every other radical group hoping to cash in from a Joe Biden presidency, the Secular Democrats for America have come forward with a blueprint of their own (Emphasis on the word blue.) Claiming to be the fastest growing non-religious religious group, they're demanding a seat at the administration's table to dismantle 240 years of American freedom. Will they get it? Under Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, anything is possible.

It's a document that will make anyone's head spin. Lashing out at Donald Trump's four years of what they call "anti-democratic, anti-scientific" policy, they argue that now is the time to take back the country from the Christian conservative movement. Help us, they implore, "dismantle its grip on our government and counter its inaccurate and revisionist messaging around our nation's founding."

How? With a laundry list of changes that would take a bulldozer to our religious foundations. They call for things like dropping God from the Pledge of Allegiance and our national motto, ending government partnership with faith-based groups (including hospitals!), abolishing conscience rights, canceling contracts with religious adoption and foster care centers, forbidding the mention of religion or God in federal buildings and offices, banning pastors from speaking on cultural issues, nominating judges that would put secularism ahead of any legitimate First Amendment grievance, putting non-religious people on the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, force government officials to check their faith at the door of public service and 25 other pages of dangerous and unconstitutional ideas.

In one portion, they even "support the recognition of humanist chaplains" in the military. Now, wait a minute. They call themselves non-religious but they want to be included in a religious dialogue? That only validates the point that's been made for years about secularism -- which is that it's a religion. And, as we see in this document, they want to be treated like one. Atheist chaplains? That's like vegetarian carnivores. It's an oxymoron. They don't exist.

In true hypocritical fashion, they call out the Trump administration for advancing a conservative Christian agenda, and then offer a path for the Biden-Harris administration to "restore the secular government envisioned by our nation's founders." A minute ago, they were accusing evangelicals of being too political. And yet, here they are, demanding that their own religion -- secularism -- reign supreme in the policies of the federal, state, and local governments. Washington, D.C. is just the first wave. Your community is next. "We are hopeful," they write, "that soon there will be secular or Freethought caucuses in legislative bodies throughout the country."

They don't just want to attack your freedom through the federal legislative and executive branches. They want to fight this battle in your state! "We implore you," these activists go on, "to help educate the American public by reasonably defining what religious freedom really means..." In other words, you can believe what you want in your head, but you can't live it out in society. That's what they want.

As hostile as Barack Obama was to religious liberty, his two terms were a love pat compared to what these activists want. This is a nationwide, top-to-bottom cleansing of any faith-based idea, institution, or tradition. Would Joe Biden go through with all of it? Probably not, but let's be honest: he's a puppet on the strings of the radical Left. And if there's one group of people they all have in their crosshairs, it's the faith community. The church needs to understand what's coming and prepare to stand aggressively against it.

One way we can do that is in Georgia, where two Senate seats can make the difference between giving Joe Biden a blank check and ensuring there is a check on his incoming agenda.
