Members of a grassroots atheist group say they will tear out pages of the Bible at the Huntington Beach pier Saturday to point out what they say is immorality in the book many Christians base their faith on.

Cowards. Filthy cowards.
Bingo! Those who voted in support of leftwing lunacy in California as a substitute for a rational government embrace cowardice as though it were a virtue.

Bring it on Atheists. Burn this State to the ground if it pleases you. No one will stand in your way here. No one has enough character or integrity to stop you.

If you really want to see some serious Fireworks check your local listings for when and where the Atheists are going to tear some pages out of the Koran. Naw, that ain't going to happen. That would NOT be "politically incorrect".
Since Atheists are just focusing on Christians and their Bible, doesn't that mean the "Atheists" are really just left wing a-holes and anarchists?
100% correct Those Atheists don't have the balls to mess with Koran.

I'm glad the atheists choose Cal. We are used to having illegals, unionistas, and any one who wants a free meal to spit in our families faces. We expect it. Heck we elect the politicians who represent those groups at the direct expense of our own families in our State.

Atheists, Anarchists, and Illegals don't need any "balls" to urinate on Calif. families. The few that actually Vote here, Vote for their families to be less than other American families every chance they get to Vote.

What are you talking about? Christianity has a foot hold on the US political system, where it has no business being. There is definitely no seat at the table for atheists.
Luckily, you had smart fore fathers that understood religion has no place in politics, and wrote it into the constitution.
True, they believed religion was a state power and didn't want the federal government screwing with that power.

I have therefore undertaken on no occasion to prescribe the religious exercises suited to it; but have left them as the Constitution found them, under the direction and discipline of State or Church authorities acknowledged by the several religious societies."

Exactly. That is the reason I encourage Atheists and Anarchists to pick a spiritually bankrupt LeftWing governed State.
Spare decent, hopeful, rational Americans in the other States the dishonor and disgrace. California families are used to it. We even expect it.

There is no place for spirituality in "progressive" California. One of the cornerstones of "progressive" ideology is worship for Big Brother and not a higher power. Think North Korea, Cuba, Soviet Union. We morphed from being liberal Democratic State to a "progressive" State. There is no seat at the table for religious/spiritual citizens in our State and they should get their families out of here asap. Progressive Ideology must divide citizens into mere fractions of Americans for the movement to thrive and prosper. Reverence for any God only gets in the way of the Utopian Ideology.
The majority will do nothing to protect Christian citizens from being degraded and disrespected. Remember, the majority did nothing in '30's Germany when the Jews became the "enemy" of Big Brother.
Ah, the Tyranny of the Majority! Exciting times ahead for the Mob!
Some members of the majority in Germany did do something to protect the Jews. Ever hear of Oskar Schindler? But it was very dangerous for most Germans.

But in the United States Christians are the majority. What minority is oppressing them? And how?

These liberals/atheists/homosexuals activists are aligning themselves with muslims.

Why don't they tear out the pages of the Koran?

Use its pages for butt-wiping.

Afterall, liberals tell you there is a critical paper shortage.

Hardly. But, you make a point that all the people who made Calif. great were either Christians or Jewish. But, that was before the Leftwing Nuts took over the State Dem Party.
Since then all has gone directed downhill as any one who knows anything about History would have easily predicted.

If there is one thing that made it perfectly clear to me that morals don't come from religion, it is the Bible.
Oh, yes-- the bible's "morals" are all over the place-- so much contradiction it's laughable...

"After Pledging Not To, Florida Pastor Burns Koran, Resulting In Deaths In Afghanistan
Posted in Liberaland by Alan • April 1, 2011, 7:45 PMET • 70

After the controversy caused by Florida Pastor Terry Jones threatening to burn the Koran on September 11, Jones vowed not to do it,“not now, not ever.” But unnoticed at the time by the media, Jones did just that on March 20, after holding a “mock trial” for the holy book."

Oh no, the Hitler was a Christian argument. Tell that to the five million Christians that died in the holocaust.
"The documents from the Nuremberg war-crimes trials show that in Czechoslovakia 437 Catholic priests were arrested and sent to concentration camps when the war began. When Warsaw was taken in 1939, the Nazis arrested some 330 priests. In November of that year Rev. Canon Czeplicki and his assistant were executed. By January 1941 in Poland about 700 priests had been killed and 3000 more were in prison or concentration camps. Monasteries, churches, and cathedrals were plundered in the territories taken by the Nazis (and the Soviets). Thomas J. Craughwell, author of “The Gentile Holocaust,” reports that by the end of World War II, approximately 6 million Poles—22 percent of the population—had died. Half of those were Catholic. Among them, the Nazis killed six bishops, 2,030 priests, 127 seminarians, 173 lay brothers and 243 nuns. In the Ukraine, says Craughwell, the Nazis “burned, shot, starved, and worked to death 3 million Ukrainian Christians. Another 2.4 million Ukrainians were shipped off to Germany as forced labor.” In the Ianiv death camp, some 8,000 Ukrainian children were murdered. Again, most of them were Christians—Orthodox and Catholic.

In Dachau alone at least 2,600 Catholic priests died. As one example, Craughwell reports that in October 1941, some 530 Polish priests arrived at Dachau. It was freezing. They were not given hats or coats. They wore wooden clogs. Only eight of the 530 survived that winter. And, in November 1942, Heinrich Himmler visited Dachau.“He selected 20 young, relatively fit Polish priests for medical experiments,” says Craughwell.“Another 120 were selected later for experiments in which they were deliberately infected with malaria.”

In the western provinces of Poland, 531 villages and towns were burned and 16,376 civilians, mostly Christians, were murdered, reports Craughwell. In the town of Bydgoszcz a group of 12-to-16-year-old Boy Scouts was rounded up and shot. When a priest rushed to the scene to administer the last rites, he was shot. Another 100 boys were rounded up and then executed in front of a Catholic church, says Craughwell. In West Prussia, 460 of 690 priests were arrested, of which 214 were executed. In December 1939, Cardinal Augustine Hlond, archbishop of Gniezno-Pozan, wrote the following to the Vatican:“The cathedral has been turned into a garage at Pelpin; the bishop’s palace into a restaurant; the chapel into a ballroom. Hundreds of churches have been closed. The whole patrimony of the Church has been confiscated, and the most eminent Catholics executed.”

Hundreds of nuns were also executed or sent to work and die in concentration camps. In one case in 1943—the Sisters of the Holy Family of Nazareth (in Nowogrodek, Poland)—the mother superior and 10 of her nuns were arrested, driven outside of town, shot, and then dumped in a mass grave. St. Edith Stein (Teresa Benedicta of the Cross), a convert from Judaism, was killed in the gas chambers at Auschwitz on Aug. 2, 1942. A week later, her sisters and 300 other Catholics were killed the same way. St. Maximilian Kolbe—whose Knights of the Immaculata spent much effort to convert Freemasons and Jews to the True Faith and sheltered some 1,500 Jews in Niepokatanow—was killed in Auschwitz on Aug. 14, 1941, by an injection of carbolic acid."

Hitler wasn't a Christian any more than you are.

"The Führer is deeply religious, but deeply anti-Christian. He regards Christianity as a symptom of decay."

Perhaps those atheists should tear up the Communist manifesto because state atheism was responsible for the deaths of about 135 million people during the 20th century.

"The World has never before known a godlessness as organized, militarized and tenaciously malevolent as that preached by Marxism. Within the philosophical system of Marx and Lenin and at the heart of their psychology, HATRED OF GOD is the principle driving force, more fundamental than all their political and economic pretensions. MILITANT ATHEISM is not merely incidental or marginal to Communist policy; it is not a side effect, but the central pivot. To achieve its diabolical ends, Communism needs to control a population devoid of religious and national feeling, and this entails a destruction of faith and nationhood. Communists proclaim both of these objectives openly, and just as openly put them into practice.”

Alexander Solzhenitsyn
Russian novelist, dramatist and historian. Through his writings, he made the world aware of the Gulag, the atheistic Soviet Union's labor camp system, and for these efforts Solzhenitsyn was exiled from the Soviet Union in 1974. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1970
