The godless are intellectually barefoot. They have an IQ south of four. They will lose the culture war.
Think about it. How is progress actually made in society? Take Islamic ones which I know best. In Tunisia, the founder of the state, Habib Bourguiba, did not come out as an atheist. He claimed to be a moderate Muslim and under the guise of moderation, his government banned the hijab, forbade wearing beards, legalized prostitution and pushed through sweeping secular reforms. He legislated like an atheist, but did not say anything publicly against Islam that might alarm the godly.
In Turkey his counterpart Kemal Ataturk took his country from a caliphate, installed a secular constitution, discouraged the Islamic headscarf and paved the way for gay bars to flourish in Istanbul. He did this without being drawn into tedious arguments about scripture. He may have been an atheist, but to his people he was a liberal Muslim.
Politicians everywhere conceal their true convictions with the eagerness of a rapist set loose in a brothel. The truth is just too hot for the masses. As an example of the reverse, in the United States Mitt Romney was pro-choice as the Governor of Massachusetts in spite of his Mormonism, and famously passed universal healthcare before it was a gleam in the eye of Precedent Obama, but as soon as he ran for prez, he took one glance at the polls and decided that dissing abortion was the way to executive power. Did he suddenly discover that his Church was not cool with terminations? Fuhgeddaboutit.
It was pure opportunism.
George Bush the Elder too was pro-choice till he ran for the oval office. Perhaps he too discovered the existence of the Bible at the eleventh hour. Fiddlesticks. Just vote whoring. Neither would have touched Roe v. Wade.
People are averse to politicians and lawmakers for being economical with the truth, but is truth the greatest virtue when dealing with easily inflamed dolts who stand in the way of progress?
