Actor Chris O’Dowd Equates Religion With Racism

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.

“I mean, you really think that Barack Obama believes in God? No way!”

Why is it that when Conservatives deny the reality of Obama’s Christianity, they’re portrayed as racist loons; but when a Hollywood actor does it, he has some special insight?

Sosa (Stalin) killed 70 million as an avowed atheist and Darwin follower…..Hitler killed 50 million as an avowed Darwin follower and pagan (see Table Talks)…..Mao killed 80 million plus as an avowed atheist and follower of Darwin….so, tell me, is it religion that truly kills or is it atheist Darwin believers?

Maybe there wouldn’t be so many people to kill if religious folk didn’t insist on having, oh you know.. like 9+ children everytime. The world is over-populated enough. Exhibit A: the religious backwaters of America. Maybe you could use a Stalin to clean out the joint.

Matthew 5 is what we need. Praise the Lord.

10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

11 “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Marx Said the same thing….and that movement lead to the murder of over 100 million people across the European and Asian Continents. Violence in the name of Religion has certainly has had bad moments, and their religions today (Islam) which are continuing to advance violence in the name of Religion. BUT…Religion as far as death and carnage have nothing on the regimes which have been G-dless – In the past 100 years Nazism and Communism have caused deaths that number in the 100’s of millions!

Scandinavia is one of (if not the most) Godless regions on the planet nowadays. They’re far more accepting of socialist and left-leaning ideologies, and their cities are the most peaceful crime-free places to live…. so following “Marx” does not always equate to violence, now does it? Dictators do. Capitalism is far more screwed up and damaging. Scandinavians haven’t gone around killing people and are frequently rated the happiest places to live on earth. You need to get out more and realise just how much God is holding you back.

This clown says he’s becoming “less liberal.” Actually, he is becoming more liberal. Liberals only co-opted the word to hide their real ideology – they’ve never been true to the real meaning of the word.

Not long ago they ditched the word after the world began to despise them because they caught on to their deceit. Now they use the word again, along with “progressive,” but both terms are used to cover the root of their actual beliefs: Marxism.

This joker, in saying he is “less liberal” actually shows the trait of today’s liberals who aren’t hiding their beliefs as much: they’re murderous tyrants who despise liberty. They’re killing infants at an obscene rate: 55+ million butchered. They’re assaulting freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and the right of individuals to be able to protect themselves from tyranny.

Christianity is the anti racism, Naturalism is racism.

Even Islam is not racist , So what is he talking about?

DoogleberryWinkler

You’re only proving how confused and illiterate religious folk are. There was no point in which Chris said religion was racist; rather, that there would eventually be disdain for religion in the same way there is for racism.
So what are you talking about?

Had to google O’Dowd to find out what idiot was pontificating the demise of religion. Not surprising – a D-lister marginal comedian who appears upset that he’s amounted to squat. I guess he’s moved on from blaming mummy & daddy.

Too bad. I enjoy O’Dowd’s work. But I should know better than to place any value on play-acting. On the other hand, because he comes off mostly likeable on screen, I hope somebody buys him a clue.

I couldn’t help but notice, in the quotes above at least, he didn’t have any specific complaints. He had nothing more to offer than childish name calling.

And another thing. It is a grand, profound display of ignorance to lump all religions together. But, typically, when a so-called “atheist” launches hypocritical accusations about the evils of religion, his only object of spite, resentment, rebellion, and envy is the one, true, living God, Jehovah.

Why can’t you lump all religions together? They are all, after all, religions.
Are you telling me there is one true relgion? *gasp* Do tell? I’ve been dying for someone to figure this out once and for all.

A few thoughts…
Those without religion are the one’s that came from caves. Religion brought us out of caves.
I find it ignominious when people blame religion for bad behavior instead of people themselves.
If Chris O’Dowd wasn’t an idiot actor with a microphone would anyone have ever heard a word he said or cared? Stop giving these clowns your money.
Ironic his name comes directly from Christ himself. Maybe he will find Christ still yet.

It will among some but not everyone. There will likely be states where this is the case, but there will be states that become more ‘Christian’. Why? Because birds of a feather flock together. Those who are true Christians and followers of Christ will migrate to states that still have Christian values and principles in place and will inevitably be doing better than those who are filled with liberal secularists and muslims.

And some say there’s no blacklisting in Hollywood. Two bit, no talent jack-offs like O’Dowd do this kind of thing hoping to endear themselves with leftist anti-Christian film producers in hopes of getting hired. It’s that simple.

Meh…according to Liberals, racism is alive, well, thriving and nowhere near “unacceptable” in red states. They need to make up their minds.

Christianity was around long before this guy (whoever he is) and will still be around when his grandchildren are dead and gone.

Withholding information is the sign of tyranny. And the control of the flow of information is the tool of a dictatorship.

Dominance = Control:

These things the unjust seek most of all. And so it is the duty of the just to defy dominance and to challenge control.

He is more offensive than racism at this moment, no need to wait. We are so tired of hearing the lame, incorrect assertions of the left. Their entire mind set is based upon control and manipulation of the low information members of our society by way of emotion and demagoguery.

I get the discomfort between the modern day and old world setback sometimes required to adhere to a particular religion. This is a perfect example of throwing the baby out with the bathwater. Wholesale perfunctory declarations like this are just matters of trend and hardly stand up to time, but help to modernize current belief. Change is slow.

Religion is a term, a word man assigned to faith in God. If atheist are so convinced there is no God, then why the lack of their faith in their choice? Bill Nye has gone to great links to disprove something he doesn’t believe in. These actions give rise to the suggestion that atheist themselves aren’t real sure if there is or isn’t a God. Christians are like many others, there are devout, marginal and as my wife would say C & E Christians. (Christmas & Easter) I believe that the pain atheist experience isn’t due to others believing in the holy trinity, I believe the pain atheist feel is due to their inner lack of faith and the possibility that they are wrong. Because of this most atheist look to disprove God through testing, challenging and confronting Christians’ belief in God. I have one word for all people who… Read more »

In the case of Farrakhan, Wright, Sharpton – religion is either a front for racism, or racism actually is their religion.
