Teapublican Christian Conservative In Virginia Compares Atheists To ISIS During Thanksgiving Prayer (VIDEO)

Americas own Taliban is the poster child for psychological projection, and self-described Christian conservative tea-party Republican Wayne Hazzard an elected official in Virginia displayed said projection once again when he compared atheists to Islamic State militants on Tuesday.

Removing God from public life

Rather than begin with a customary invocation for Tuesdays meeting, chairman of the Hanover County Board of Supervisors, Wayne Hazzard, asked the board to indulge him while he took a detour and railed against modern society.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports:

As we celebrate Thanksgiving this week, I think it appropriate that we continue to remember the reason that this great nation was formed and by whose grace it continues to survive. Christians who formed our nation celebrated days of thanksgiving to God. The Jamestown and Plymouth colonists recognized that they were sustained only by Gods providence and celebrated Thanksgiving feasts.

Hazzard is a self-described Christian conservative tea-party Republican, although the self-labeling isnt necessary: I could tell given how he erased the Native Americans. Without the Wampagoag, the pilgrims would probably have died.

Hazzard said that the first three presidents Washington, Adams, and Madison all issued proclamations which called for people to express gratitude towards God, and that every president since Lincoln in 1863 has also issued a national Thanksgiving proclamation.

His language quickly changed, though, when he compared non-religious Americans who think state-sponsored prayer is a bad idea with Daesh:

And these days of an enemy from outside of this country as well as people from within who would attempt to remove all recognition of God from public life, we offer this proclamation as a reminder that the United States has always acknowledged our nation … is dependent on Gods grace and providence.

All the Gott Mit Uns in the world didnt save members of the Wehrmacht from the Godless Commies. Nor did calling God out in their charter and tying him with Thanksgiving save the colonists of the Berkeley Hundred from the Indian Massacre of 1622. If this is the God were dependent on, I feel a lot safer going solo.

Watch the proclamation below:

      Id point out that attributing peoples actions to god is a lie and lying is a sin but what good would it do? Christianity has nothing if it cant lie.

      • Darren Johnson

        Please do not paint Christians all with the same brush.

        • Baby_Raptor

          Your religion has nothing if you cannot lie about people being sinners and needing your god. You personally may not like or think that but its in your book. Im not gonna kidglove the facts because you want to cherrypick.

          Please do not paint all atheists/Muslims/Hindus with the same brush. Also, please apologize for the KKK and the Tea Party, denounce these radical terrorists and speak up for those who need help.

          • Mike Niebauer

            I am not trying to attack anyone here, it is just that whenever the dont paint ____ with the same brush argument comes out, the ones defending radical Christianity usually follow relatively quickly.

          Seriously Darren, Teapublican? You actually spend most of your time on If You Only News and Rawstory? Youre also always on Liberal American and Americans Against The Tea Party like all the time.

          Talk about confirmation bias, my God! You must have a pile of dirty dishes in the sink at your crappy house! Do them later, go out and get some sun and meet some different people.

      Read what our Founding Fathers have to say and reason about the separation of church and state …you can look this stuff up on Google, Yahoo, Bing, Ask and any other SQL data base
      We have abundant reason to rejoice that in this Land the light of truth and reason has triumphed over the power of bigotry and superstition… In this enlightened Age and in this Land of equal liberty it is our boast, that a mans religious tenets will not forfeit the protection of the Laws, nor deprive him of the right of attaining and holding the highest Offices that are known in the United States.
      ~Founding Father George Washington, letter to the members of the New Church in
      Baltimore, January 27, 1793

      I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should make no law respecting an establishment of religion,
      or prohibit the free exercise thereof, thus building a wall of separation between church and state.
      ~Founding Father Thomas Jefferson, letter to the Baptists of Danbury,
      Connecticut, 1802

      . The civil government functions with complete success by the total separation of the Church from the State.
      ~Founding Father James Madison, 1819, Writings, 8:432, quoted from Gene Garman,
      Essays In Addition to Americas Real Religion
      These are just a few of the examples (I have about 50 more) of the Founding Fathers thoughts and reasoning for the separation of church and state …more recently the feeling is if a church (religion) wants a seat at the table the price of admission is TAXES
