Atheists Give Porn Two Thumbs, Way Up

Atheists are an interesting group.  As anyone who reads this blog knows, atheists spend a lot of their time bashing Christians for pretty much anything we do.  They criticize our beliefs, traditions, revise our amazing history, you know, just attack us in any way they can.  But would you believe, with all the lies and hateful rhetoric used against us, they, for the most part, have no issue with pornography?

That's right, porn seems to be no problem for most atheists.  I have come across several atheist blogs lately that are devoting entire posts to the defense of this remarkably wicked industry. (because I don't subscribe to the language and advertising on the blogs that are defending pornography, I'm not going to give any links, and will not permit any to be posted on this blog.)

And they defend porn in mainly two ways.

  1. By citing statistics that somehow show that porn doesn't lead directly to violent crime.  Whether or not watching this smut makes you want to go out force yourself on someone is completely irrelevant in this discussion.  Is it really okay to watch vile people commit horrible acts just because it doesn't necessarily compel you to go out and mimic said actions?  I think not.
  2. The second way this behavior is defended is by claiming the only reason that Christians believe porn is wrong is because we are opposed to physical intimacy between a man and a woman.  That argument could very well be the stupidest thing I've ever heard.  Atheists, you can't have it both ways.  You can't complain that we have too many children and then make the ridiculous assertion that we are somehow uncomfortable with the God-given privileges that go along with marriage.  Do most Christians believe in abstinence before marriage?  Of course we do.  But that doesn't mean we believe in abstinence for life.  Ever hear of the Duggers?

But let's give this a closer look.  Atheists believe that teaching kids about the Bible is harmful, but pornography isn't?  They believe that consenting adults should be left alone to engage in any behavior they choose, with the exception of going to church and believing in God?  Why is it when people are fully-clothed, sitting in church pews, and singing Amazing Grace that atheists are offended, but if people video tape themselves denigrating each other, that's no problem at all?

Here's the HardTruth.

The reason atheists tend to think this way is because they lack the basic morality that the vast majority of Christians possess.  Many atheists make a living pointing out every time a Christian does something wrong because they believe it validates their lack of belief.  They disingenuously claim that if one attempts to live by a higher moral standard that they are never allowed to make a mistake.  This is of course, ridiculous, and only lends credence to the notion that many, but not all atheists are morally bankrupt, because highlighting the immorality of a few Christians is a blatantly obvious attempt to bring us down to your level.  If atheists truly believe they have a higher moral code, they would expect Christians to mess up, instead of always acting like it's front page news.  So the facts in this argument are clear; atheists defend the vile actions perpetrated by the porn industry while criticizing Bible believers.  So much for being good without God, and that's the HardTruth.
