The Atheist Declaration of War on Hawaii Churches
By Andrew Walden @ 6:45 PM :: 10751 Views :: First Amendment, Religion

by Andrew Walden

Hawaii’s small gaggle of atheists have suddenly been put to work by Hawaii’s elites. The reason is not difficult to discern. With Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie attempting to destroy the Prepaid Health Care Act and impose government rationed health care, it is necessary to push back against pro-life forces. While the legislature and the governor last session chose to allow the pro-life HMC hospitals to close by failing to act on bills which would have supported HMC's organ transplant center and raised Hawaii’s Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement rates to near the national average, they were using atheist provocateur Mitch Kahle to keep pro-life activists busy. The result was no prayer in the Senate and now the ouster of Marc Alexander as Abercrombie’s Homeless Czar. This session they will be pushing for the insurance profit scheme known as “assisted suicide.”

Kahle advertised his availability for such employment in an email blast sent in September 2010 to all state representatives and senators as well as numerous media figures. At the time Kahle was a touting a complaint he had filed with the IRS against Hawaii Family Forum challenging HFF’s non-profit status because it had lobbied against gay marriage. The complaint of course went nowhere and produced nothing, but consumed with a gubernatorial campaign waged against Republican nominee Duke Aiona on the basis that he was too Christian, the trendy urban atheists in Hawaii’s media eagerly lapped it up as if it presaged the final coming of the anti-Christ. Complained Civil Beat’s Chad Blair, “Hawaii elections have not been totally God-free.” In a January 2011 brushback to the atheist upsurge, Volcanic Ash Columnist David Shapiro wrote: “Hawaii Democrats Blatantly target Christianity for obliteration.”

Responding to Kahle, HFF attorney Jim Hochberg pointed to: “The animus that Ms Huber and Mr. Kahle hold against HFF and its supporters is related to HFF's successful efforts to keep civil unions from being introduced into Hawaii. Both people would be much better served, and would much better serve this fair state, by finding another effort to devote their time to.”

And Kahle agreed, writing:

Mr. Hochberg is correct. We do indeed hold considerable animus toward the Hawaii Family Forum.

The people behind the Hawaii Family Forum (i.e., Francis Oda, Bishop Silva, Dennis Arakaki, etc.) should understand that there is a price to be paid for their actions.

The Hawaii Family Forum has been used to attack our friends and families for far too long.

HCSSC intends to exhaust all possible legal means to stop the injustice brought on by the immoral actions of the Hawaii Family Forum, its supporters and financiers.

Sincerely,

Mitch Kahle

Hawaii Citizens for the Separation of State and Church

By “our friends and families” Kahle is of course referring to the effort to invent new types of family structures to replace the nuclear family and then impose those structures in order to bring “change” to the foundations of society. Gay marriage is currently at the center of these efforts. The gay movement is well-known for its tactics of blackmail and extortion against its opponents. Less well known is the complete lack of respect for the civil rights of others. The kind of absolutism shown by gay activists towards black voters in California who rejected gay marriage—“you call us fa**ot, we call you ni**er”—works against two decades spent cultivating an image of victimhood on behalf of a group previously recognized as victimizers.

Kahle’s “price to be paid” is actually one of the milder expressions of the absolutism and intolerance of the gay-atheist movement. After all, the track record of atheism in political power has been a century of mass murder. But for the moment, it is useful and profitable for Hawaii’s elite to keep him around, so you have been warned.
