We have reported before on this blog about the weakening mental fortitude of many contemporary atheists, who are apparently so weakly constituted that the have a mental breakdown when confronted with religion. Christians don't seem to be any the worse for the fact that they have to live in an increasingly secular culture, but atheists, on the other hand, seem to have become so psychologically tender (perhaps through intellectual inbreeding), that they cannot seem to handle the mere mention of religion.
Last we heard, an atheist group was suing the state of Kentucky for having mention of the word "God" in its Homeland Security law, claiming it caused them "mental pain and anguish."
The most recent case of athiests is that of an atheist at West Point who has resigned from the school because it was too religious there. Even though West Point does not mandate any kind of religious activities, Blake Page claims it does. But it appears that he just doesn't like the fact that so many of the students there were religious and disagreed with him. At least the story in the Lexington Herald-Leader doesn't mention anything much more than this.
Worse still the ... Foundation is calling Blake's act of running away from those mean ol' religious people who don't believe like he does an "act of sacrifice." Ironically, Page's "act of sacrifice" came "after he was notified he would not be commissioned in the Army because of a medical issue related to clinical depression."
"Act of sacrifice." Mmhmm.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: They just don't make atheists like they use to.
