The Blaze’s S. E. Cupp shocked her co-hosts on MSNBC’s “The Cycle” when she declared, “I would never vote for an atheist president. Ever.” Why was it shocking? For those who didn’t know Cupp is a self-avowed atheist. Yeah and her commentary trying to validate her statements was not very impressive.
In the midst of a discussion on Mitt Romney’s Mormonism and how it would effect his campaign to be president, co-host Krystal Ball (yes you have to love that name there and find it incredibly ironic in a discussion about Mormonism and atheism) tossed Cupp a slider and she fouled out.
“What if he were atheist?” asked Ball, referring to Romney.
Cupp responded quickly declaring that he would have “no chance.” She followed up with, ““And you know what? I would never vote for an atheist president. Ever.”
Steve Kornacki, from Salon, joked, “You’re a self-loathing atheist.”
Then it got interesting as Ms. Cupp attempted, and I believe failed, to give a reasoned explanation for her assertion.
She said, pointing to herself, “Because I do not think that someone who represents 5 to 10 percent of the population should be representing and thinking that everyone else in the world is crazy, but me.”
OK, so she affirms that atheists think everyone else in the world except them are crazy. I suppose the question is then, why do they engage in conversation with people that they believe are crazy? On top of that, using her reasoning, Romney’s religion of Mormonism has even less of the population than the percentages she quoted in regards to atheists.
Now pay attention class and you will learn something very interesting and very telling about atheists that those of us who have engaged them for a while now have found to be true, though many will deny it.
S. E. Cupp was asked by Ball what would be wrong with an atheist as president representing Christians. While Cupp claimed to “appreciate” religion, her answer makes one scratch their head to what she actually professes.
“The other part of it — I like that there is a check, OK? That there‘s a person in the office that doesn’t think he’s bigger than the state,” she continued. “I like religion being a check and knowing that my president goes home every night addressing someone above him and not thinking all the power resides right here (pointing to her chest)… Atheists don’t have that.”
So now we understand that atheists see themselves as “the power” or we could suggest they see themselves as their own god. Not only that, but the fact that Cupp affirms that she thinks atheists view everyone else as crazy and then tries to gloss over this issue claiming that she likes a check of a president going home every night and addressing “someone above him” seems utterly insane. I mean if your world view is that you think people are crazy for engaging in religion and yet you take some comfort or liking to the fact that the person goes home every night and prays to, at least what is in your mind, an imaginary being, how do you justify that?
Ultimately this goes to demonstrate the incredibly twisted thinking of atheists. I appreciate Ms. Cupp being forthcoming about it, but then she does not apply the logic of the numbers to any support of Romney, though she does try and lump all religions together. To imply that everyone else in the world is crazy and then not to promote your supposed “free thinking” view of the world by not be willing to put in office a person who thinks like you do (an atheist), that the power is all right there inside you and you are above the state, is simply illogical.
Ultimately though, atheists are in the same boat that all other religions are that are not based solely upon the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments alone as the Word of God. They stand on a shaky foundation, not only when it comes to who the true God is, but also to morality, money, history, mathematics, science, and what the solutions to man’s greatest problem is, and that is a need for a Savior from sin.
In fact, atheists should not even refer to themselves as atheists. They are claiming there is no God, which is a logical fallacy known as a double negative. They equivocate here though demanding that atheism is a “lack of belief in a god.” That is the same thing. They should try being at least honest and declaring if nothing else that they are agnostic, which means they just don’t have knowledge, but even that would not be fully truthful for God has declared,
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools.
I don’t claim that I am superior to any man, whether they claim to be atheist or not. I am a fallen sinful man just as they are, but God has said that He has revealed something of Himself in the Creation, but men love sin and they hate God. They see evidence for Him in the world and yet they reject Him, suppressing that knowledge in unrighteousness. Their hearts are darkened and though they profess to be wise (this comes through over and over in conversations with professing atheists, the Bible says they are fools.
Oh that people like S. E. Cupp would have the light of the gospel of Jesus Christ shined upon their hearts and be transformed by God Himself through that gospel. May God grant her grace, open her eyes to the truth and give her a sound mind that honors Him.
Listen to the conversation in the video:
Editor’s note: The segment of the clip is titled “Being devoted to your religion and respecting others. While my comments might seem as though I do not respect Ms. Cupp, I actually do. I would agree with many of her stands on various issues. However, I would say that she is borrowing from a Christian worldview to hold to many of her views and my desire to see her become a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ is not disrespectful, but is a desire to see her glorify God.
