Can atheists, members of a club with a self refuting ideology, be patriotic? sure
Are all atheists infected with contratheism? No. Most seem to incorporate “live and let live” into the club ideology.
Most atheists seem to desire to join- or build an atheist club. They long for connection and intimacy as we all do. But they have a great battle with internal loneliness with which to content in the vast uncaused everything. Do not despise the atheist. Do not hate the contratheist. Hate contratheism. Be kind to the atheist no matter how brash or vile his words, actions, and inactions.
Religious freedom sought is the foundation of our Constitution, the impetus for the fight for independence from the feckless crown of britain.
Freedom sadly allows for one to constrain God. This is dignity: God respecting the personhood of the individual and His great love of it.
The atheist’s fear of phenomenology binds them in intellectual dishonesty, self blinded to “a slice” of Truth. Certain of the denial of certainty, raging against inconformity of reality to one’s life, the atheist might lash out against dissenters. This habit of wrath might devolved into contratheism. When contratheists mob whether interweb or real life this gross wrath is more than self destructive.
Pray for those who hate you… for they likely hate themselves.
