Those who deny the existence of their Creator are delusional.
This is not an insult. It's not a personal attack. It's not a pejorative.

In response to thousands of Atheists gathering on the National Mall last Saturday to rally for secularism at the 2016 Reason Rally, leading evangelist Franklin Graham pointed out the irony behind the demonstration.
Atheist activists, entertainers and performers took the stage in front of the Lincoln Memorial on Saturday to rile fellow atheists and religious "nones" to call on politicians and governments to take "reason" as priority over "religious-driven ideology."
Graham, the president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, took to his Facebook page Monday to argue that "freedom-loving" Americans should be concerned by the "liberal godless kind of reason" being promoted at the rally. Graham then wrote that it is "ironic" that the gathering was held on the grounds of the Lincoln Memorial. more >>
Can a self-satisfied atheist become a Christian? Of course she can. But sometimes, it might come through tears.
Nicolle Cliffe might have been named "the person least likely to become a Christian." It's not that she was hostile to Christians or Christianity, like Richard Dawkins or the apostle formerly known as Saul. No, Nicolle had become an atheist since her college years, and thought her Christian friends suffered a benign delusion that probably helped them deal with life.
Nicolle wasn't afraid of dying, either. She actually found the idea of life ending at death "mildly reassuring in its finality." She had no deep sense of untapped longing. In fact, she seemed to have it all — a good marriage, children, a budding vocation as cofounder and coeditor of a website. Nicolle Cliffe just wasn't a likely candidate for conversion. more >>
The highly anticipated atheist Reason Rally at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. reportedly drew a much smaller crowd on Saturday than expected, with a variety of different reasons offered for the low attendance.
CNN Wire said "thousands" came out for what organizers said was a political event, bringing together secular people from across America. Several reports have noted that the attendance was well below the over 30,000 mark that organizers had hoped for.
Official figures of how many attended have not been provided yet, with even the "15,000 to 20,000" estimate by rally organizers disputed by sources such as Hemant Mehta of The Friendly Atheist blog on Patheos.com. more >>
The University of Miami has now announced a chair for the study of atheism. In another recent story, an atheist group is suing a sheriff because of his pro-God statements on his Facebook page (Constitution.com, 5/19/16). No one can deny the rise of the shrill atheistic voices of our time.
But dare I say that the idea of state-sanctioned and in some cases state-mandated atheism is absolutely out of step with the traditions of America.
Here are 10 reasons why: more >>
Evangelist Ray Comfort has quipped that even the organizers of the atheist Reason Rally in Washington D.C. are "praying" that it won't rain on Saturday.
"You can't tell me that the organizers of the atheist Reason Rally aren't praying that it won't rain on Saturday," Comfort wrote on Facebook, noting weather forecasts for the area predict there is a 50 percent chance of rain on Saturday.
Organizers of the rally are hoping that as many as 30,000 people will attend what is being billed as the largest secular gathering in America, which they have been promoting for months. more >>
