My Response to the “Red Herring” Constitutional Lawyer code named dougindeap….

7 Comments


The following is a response after receiving a comment about my posts concerning  the Separation of Church and State. This person only left an email address. He goes by the name of dougindeap of which I googled finding him to be an atheist lawyer. If I am incorrect about this, I am sure he will let me know.

I should be so honored that he would strive to search out bloggers like myself, whom he has never commented before on any other posts of mine. But of course, he would choose to argue his points that what I have written is a “red herring.” He replies in his “legal jargon” that supposedly makes him sound smart or “Constitutionally Unchallenged.”

For whatever its worth, at least he writes in a civil yet statistical tone. However, the following has been my feeling regarding the overall purpose of atheists. 

First of all there is nowhere that I have read in the constitution the separation of church and state is a bedrock of anything. In its makeup is the point being stated the GOVERNMENT HAS NO RIGHT TO INFERFERE WITH THE CHURCH, HOW IT IS RUN, WHAT IT DOES, WHERE IT WANTS TO PLACE NATIVITY SCENES OR THE CROSS OF CHRIST. Never mind the Founding Fathers had church services in the US Capitol until after the Civil War. Never mind there were over 1400 written, signed proclamations of prayer and fasting by these leaders. Never mind…..constitution for a moral people only

Wait a minute….

Why is it atheist/agnostics/unbelievers spend all of their time fighting, suing, arguing against something they believe doesn’t exist?

Since you don’t believe in God the Creator of the Universe or his Son Jesus, the Savior of the world, then you really have nothing to say, write or sue. How can you write or sue something that simply isn’t anywhere?

If you believe God never existed, then you have no right to be upset, call others out or sue to remove a cross on a public hill because to you that cross isn’t there. How could it be?

If you truly stand by your atheist conviction, then you really should keep quiet, stay out of places where God is represented and……stop your efforts to pursue the “nothing” you continue to fight against. What is that like?

Why would you want to be caught up in any action or words where you mention the name “God?” How can you possibly stand by lawsuit after lawsuit against “a nonentity?” Since God isn’t anywhere, or he is nowhere then why do you seek out others who do believe?

If there is nothing there, it is empty space, zilch, zero, air.

If God isn’t there, anywhere or even worshipped by those who do believe in Him, why do you care?

For that matter we who do claim to follow Jesus, have the same authority as you do to believe in Him and regard His presence anywhere we choose without being concerned about those like yourself who don’t believe in him.

After all the Constitution gives us that right. You know that “separation of church and state” protects us; not unbelievers.

I didn’t hunt you down. I wasn’t “trolling” to find unbelievers but then how could I? If you don’t believe then you have nothing to say…..which means you shouldn’t be replying to anyone about what you know isn’t there. How do you choose words about nothing?

Your actions to continually “troll” bloggers such as myself to argue what you deem as “nothing” is laughable. Or maybe another “red herring.”

Therefore Mr. Dougindeap, all comments from your perspective don’t exist.

  1. I wonder if he will respond back

  2. Well said. The separation of church and state issue has always boggled my mind for the reasons you’ve expressed. I guess it’s not enough for atheists to be happy with their belief that God doesn’t exist. They want to make sure no one else believes in him either. I guess that’s their way of proselytizing their faith, although they would deny that. The new atheists despise religion and will go to any means to stop any expression of faith, and that’s why they so fiercely uphold the concept of separation of church and state, which doesn’t exist, except in their minds. And if it did exist, then, since atheism is a religion itself, we should banish atheism and secularism from schools and anywhere else it touches the government.

  3. Hooray for you! As Jonathan says, well said. In fact, very well said. Your thinking is right on!

  4. This “lawyer” is one of four things…

    1) Not actually a lawyer
    2) Woefully ignorant
    3) Intellectually dishonest
    4) Some combination of the above 3.

    You likely will not hear back from the hit & run troll though I’m doing my best to chum the waters.
