I have not seen this film, nor do I want to—though I think we can all agree that Kevin Sorbo is one of the most talented actors of our time. But I’ll probably end up watching this once it lands on Netflix. Anyway, if it portrays atheists the way this blogger says, I’ll probably need to have a libation close-at-hand.
God’s Not Dead portrays three or four primary atheist characters: The pompous bombastic university professor (surrounded by a supportive gang of snickering atheist colleagues), a self-absorbed businessman, his snarky, condescending journalist girlfriend, and a stern Chinese father of an exchange student. Observing their behavior, I learn the following:
1. Atheist professors are predatory, and they are out to convert everyone into ideological clones of themselves.
2. Atheists are selfish, self-absorbed, greedy jerks.
3. Atheists are cocky, self-sure, and totally enamored with their own superiority.
4. Atheists will openly threaten you…
5. Atheists are clearly incapable of love.
6. Atheists lack ethical boundaries…
7. They disbelieve in God because something bad happened to them…
8. Atheists are angry at God.
9. Atheists are miserable because they believe life is meaningless.
10. Atheists have no basis for morality.
