I Don't Believe in Unicorns!
Group About Something I Don't Believe In
I DON'T BELIEVE IN UNICORNS, AND I'M STARTING A GROUP FOR ALL NON UNICORN BELIEVERS TO JOIN. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE IN THE EXISTENCE OF UNICORNS, PLEASE JOIN ME IN THE INTERNATIONAL FIGHT TO BRING AWARENESS TO EVERYONE WHO MAY BELIEVE. WE WILL LOOK INTO SETTING UP A RALLY SO WE CAN ALL COME TOGETHER AND STATE OUR ISSUES AND FRUSTRATIONS. WE WILL ALSO BE PICKETING WASHINGTON D.C. SO THEY MAKE A LAW TO NO LONGER ALLOW UNICORN BELIEVERS TO BE ABLE TO TEACH OUR CHILDREN, AND WE WILL FIGHT TO THE DEATH TO HAVE UNICORNS REMOVED FROM TELEVISION, MOVIES, BOOKS, AND THE INTERNET! WE WILL SOON BE OFFERING PARAPHERNALIA (SHIRTS, HATS, SIGNS, BUMPER STICKERS, ETC) THAT WILL STATE OUR DISBELIEF OF THESE UNREAL CREATURES. I FEEL THAT A WORLD THAT BELIEVES IN UNICORNS IS IN PERIL. IT SHOULD BE CONSIDERED TRULY HATEFUL AND EVEN CHILD ABUSE TO ALLOW YOUNG CHILDREN TO BELIEVE IN SUCH A FICTIONAL CHARACTER. WE NEED TO REALLY THINK ABOUT HOW UNICORN BELIEVERS ARE RUINING OUR SOCIETY AND OUR CHILDREN'S PSYCHE.

Words Purposefully Taken Out of Context
It's something that happens all the time, and even "Christians" do it at times. But how far should we actually allow loving words to be taken out of context without fighting back? The real Christ followers (not just the "Christians" who are pridefully screaming) need to learn to be just as vocal as atheists are. But atheists rallies always seem to spew hate and anger. I guess that is the opposite of GOoD, so they have proven their point.
Peace or Anger?

What's Really Going On Here?
Okay, okay! I know most of you are like "What is this about?" I know this is unlike most of my other articles, but I feel like getting my questions and thoughts out there anyway.
I am not really starting a group about the non existence of unicorns. While it would be kind of fun/funny to do so, it would be an extreme waste of my time and energy, and I have way more important things to be doing. On that note, I am so confussed as to why it has become so necessary to start a vocal group of any kind about a non belief. I mean, you either believe in something or you don't. If you don't believe in it... then why invest so much of your time and energy into it? Is it really just because you don't believe in something, or is it because you don't like the people who do believe in it?
Let's take atheism into consideration. If you don't believe there is an all powerful Being or Creator, why is it not enough to just not believe? I understand having some opinions when the topic arises, but what is really the point of having a community or vocal group of people who get together and talk about how much they don't believe in something. Seems like an extreme waste of time. Are atheist truly coming together to support each other in confirming their decision to not believe in God? Or is it really about a community of folks who want to bash God as much as they can, and tell people who do believe in Him that they are wrong? I've read many articles, have some atheist friends turned acquaintances, searched forums, read materials, and listened to some arguments for atheism, and I keep coming up with the same question: Why do atheist fight so hard for something they don't even believe exists?!
It's my opinion that the original point to an organized atheist group is to target God believing folks, telling them they are wrong, hateful, child abusers, stupid, ignorant, uneducated, dreamers, etc., but that is just my first-hand experience. The only conclusion I've been able to come up with is that Atheism is actually a hate group that targets Christians. I would really like to be wrong, but no one has shown me otherwise yet. Please don't misunderstand my confusion for poking fun. This is seriously a matter I do not understand. There are many things I don't believe in, but I don't invest so much time, energy, or thought into them any further unless the need arises. Example: Unicorns. I don't believe in unicorns. I just don't. But I've never been an activist, formed a group, or berated others for liking or believing in them. The only time I've ever actually put any time into unicorns was recently... just in case anyone stated a rebuttal for the existence of them. LOL!
I do know that atheist organizations want to change the foundations of our nation, and I can understand that Americans want their thoughts to heard and recognized. But, honestly, the people who were here during the foundation of the nation of the United States of America voted to have us being a nation that served God. That's just how it is. Our country doesn't force you to go to church or kill you if you reject Jesus, so I'm not sure I understand the "its offensive" argument. If you don't want to say "One nation under God"... then don't say it. If you don't want your child to read the Bible in school... then homeschool them or tell them not to read the bible in school. If you don't want to see a cross at a veteran's hospital or a manger in front of a courthouse... then look the other way. And I'm extremely confused as to what is so offensive about "Thou shalt not murder, steal, lie, etc." I don't believe there is a group out their trying to take away the rights of atheists, so I don't understand the atheist groups out there trying to take away the rights of those who do believe there is an all powerful Creator.
I would like to acknowledge that I do understand and am sympathetic toward those affected by "immature Christians" or those walking around "claiming the name of Jesus" but who actually do not know who He is. I sincerely apologize for those people. In fact, I was one myself. The true goal of a Christian is to live as closely as possible to how Jesus lived and to develop a character like God's. For those who don't truly know who God is and how He is... this is impossible to do, and it becomes offensive and/or misleading. God is one of absolute love. He is the perfect parent who loves His children unconditionally, but also corrects and redirects His children when they're straying off course. Any parent who does not correct his child, allows them to do whatever, believe whatever, and act however their child-like mind tells them to. And just because something comes naturally, doesn't make it okay. You don't have to teach a child to lie, steal, cheat, be demanding, or be selfish... it's just natural, and its something we need to teach our children how to overcome... just as God teaches us to overcome our natural hate, envy, and selfishness to replace it with love, peace, joy, kindness, and self-control. Most people find true Christianity offensive not because there is a perfect God, but because they don't want to truly believe that they NEED someone else to save them because they are not GOoD enough to earn something on their own.
Please... I welcome your comments, feedback, opinions, and views. Please remember to keep it cordial and polite. We can all express our own opinions with freedom and courtesy at the same time.
