I have started a new blog called Atheist Watch. Its general concern is keeping up with the developments in the atheist movement in general, and refuting their ideas. Part of that mission is to keep tabs on a segment of atheism that I think is rapidly developing into a hate group. This is the fringe, probably no more than about 10% at most. I don't say they are a hate group, but that they are becoming one. I think the atheist community has a duty to use peer pressure to keep them in line. But the atheists are incensed about it. They are angry about the site. Atheists have always been hyper-sensitive to any sort of criticism. That is my experince on message boards anyway.
The site is totally my own and has nothing to do with the views of the CADRE.
As atheist named "Peter," on the comment section of this blog, the post on atheist hymn said:
This blog is used to drive traffic and attention to "The Atheist Watch". I would like to know what the other members of the Christian CADRE think about "the Atheist Watch" blog. Is it a hate site? Do you (silently?) approve it, condemn it or don't care about it?
The atheists seem very upset by the site, yet I was very careful to say I am not claiming that all of atheism is a hate group. I think there are fringe elements in the atheist movement and it behooves the mainstream rational atheists to keep them in check. It's their social duty to use whatever peer pressure they can, because I think they helped create the situation which allows them to flourish.
Now how that can make me a hate monger is beyond me.
Do I hate atheists? I am very angry at them. So angry I can almost forget some are dear friends. I find most atheists to be very irrational and uninformed, not very analytical, sometimes totally dishonest and self-deceived. Does that mean that I hate them? I think the same thing about my sister, who is a Christian, I don't hate her. And man is she going to kill me when she reads this!
Atheist Watch Is a new site it's still in formation. I will take all the comments into consideration and use them to shape the boundaries of discussion on the site. I will put some of the comments that I feel are most through and thought provoking, those by atheists friends such as Peter, and answer them, on Atheist Watch itself.
I hope you will all take a gander and let me know what you think.
