This is where it has been heading, inexorably, inevitably, for some time now.
Here is the pic, spotted on Facebook earlier today:
And here is the story from The Sydney Herald.
O’Dowd has told Britain’s GQ magazine: “For most of my life, I’ve been, ‘Hey, I’m not into it, but I respect your right to believe whatever you want’. But as time goes on, weirdly, I’m growing less liberal. I’m more like, ‘No, religion is ruining the world, you need to stop!’.
“There’s going to be a turning point where it’s going to be like racism. You know, ‘You’re not allowed to say that weird s**t! It’s mad! And you’re making everybody crazy!’
“And you know, now America can’t have a president that doesn’t say he believes in God. So we’re f**ked! Like, they f**ked everything!
“You wanna go and live in your weird cult and talk about a man who lives in a cloud, you do that, but don’t.”
He also helpfully adds: “I mean, you really think that Barack Obama believes in God? No way!” The combination of hubris, smug superiority, and embarrassing fanboi hero worship for Obama is really ridiculous. But oh so very common. Liberals are the most predictable of all the animal herds.
This attitude is going to be more and more frequently spoken of. The forces of secular liberalism have no tolerance for Christianity, as I’ve outlined here at The Right Scoop on numerous occasions. And O’Dowd’s comments are coming out at the same time that atheist prophets and proselytizers Neil deGrasse Tyson and Bill Nye have been on TV as much as possible denigrating religious belief, with deGrasse Tyson just this week suggesting religious people “go back to their caves.”
And O’Dowd? Well he’s just correct. Religion will become unacceptable in America, if not literally at least popularly. Starting with Christianity. And sooner than you think. Just watch.
