So many people of all political stripes seem to forget about the value of freedom of speech and religion when it’s their turn on top, and they have a chance to crush their rivals. The Evangelical Atheists have been all about squashing public displays of Christianity for decades.
It’s time to remind them that their turn is coming. Russia and the old USSR used to be an Atheist, Commie Paradise. But times are changing. It seems that Vladimir Putin has been finding his Orthodox roots. It’s no longer cool to advertise abortion nor gayness in Russia. Here’s a story which you might take with a grain of salt, because it’s from that “news” dumpster called NBC. A reporter, called Alexey Eremenko, claims that a Russian is facing possibly a year in prison for claiming, on social media, that there is no God. Viktor Krasnov is said to be on trial in Stavropol, Russia, for “offending believer’s feelings”, after having undergone a month of mental health testing. Perhaps Atheists are now considered crazy in Russia.
The enforcers of political correctness, who feel more powerful and alive when they’re suppressing opposing ideas, should remember that times change, and the next ideas to be suppressed will be their own.
