  • Atheist activist becomes "Christian".

    This should be filed under.... if you can't beat them, join them, and destroy them from the inside out.

    Remember that atheist activist dude named Patrick Greene? He was the guy that was suing the town of Athens Texas because of their Nativity display.

    Then it turns out Mr. Green is ill (he's going blind), which in turn makes it so that he and his wife can't pay their bills. So, some local Christians help him out financially. Apparently this gesture warms his heart.

    And in the span of just a month or so this guy claims he has become a Christian.
    “There’s been one lingering thought in the back of my head my entire life, and it‘s one thought that I’ve never been able to reconcile, and that is the vast difference between all the animals and us,” Greene told The Christian Post on Tuesday, as he began to explain his recent transformation from atheist to Christian. The theory of evolution didn’t answer his questions, he says, so he just set those questions aside and didn’t think about them anymore.

    Sounds like a great story eh???

    That is until you read the rest of the story....
    Perhaps more surprising than Greene’s conversion — which was unexpected considering his past activism — is his plan to consider entering ministry. The Post reports that he may become a part of a liberal congregation and that he may even start his own chapter of the Rainbow Baptists, a ministry to the LGBTQ community. Greene says that he believes the Bible’s original approach to homosexuality has been altered and that he feels strongly about rectifying it.

    The guy has been a "Christian" for a month and he believes that the Bible's original approach to homosexuality has been "altered"??? What do you think about a story like this? Doesn't it seem a bit suspicious that a hard-core atheist would make such a quick conversion and already be on a mission to alter the way other Christians view homosexuals?

    Did the author really have to use the word "rectifying"?

    It sounds like he simply found a more preferable soapbox to from. Yeah, I'd say he's a mole.

    Email him and invite him to TOL.....

        Sounds like the same vanity that allowed him to feel justified in judging God to begin with is still alive and well. It isn't a matter of if he'll become an apostate, but when. And it appears he's already on his way.

          Used to work with a church in Athens, TX. This guys is just a particular type of person. One who likes to have an opposing stance, something to fight for. I condone his passion and condemn his ignorance.

              I think we should pray for him, just in case.

                Hey, I spouted lots of crap after id been a Christian a month.

                Hopefully now I spout less.

                Give him a few years for God to sort his doctrine out.

                ...yeah I know I have left myself right open for a kicking here.........

                  Actually, I agree with you.

                    Sounds so gay. A wolf enters the flock to kill them from inside the fold.

                      Convenient. Most people are well aware that the Christian community will help them out in time of need. His heart wasn't "warmed", his bills were paid. Guess that's heart-warming in a sense, but it sure wasn't heart transforming.

                      He's the same old man he always was, and believing we were actually "created" instead of evolved doesn't mean he's suddenly a new creature.

                      Yeah, it's beyond suspicious. Reminds me of my nephew. Everytime he goes to prison, he gets that "jail house conversion."

                      I call it infiltration. The Gay Pride Movement is flourishing, and what better place for tares than to grow among the wheat?

                        yeah....while i think it's absurd to automatically assume that someone would convert from Atheism to Orthodox[conservative] Christianity, the fact that less than a month after his supposed conversion he thinks he's equipped for the ministry is extremely suspicious.
                        Religion can never reform mankind, because religion is slavery.

                          Isn't there a verse that says something about waiting at least two years?

                            Religion. An excuse for having to die....even old Constantine did not give up the ghost until he was on his death bed...guess it just makes them feel better.

                              He comes across as a lost soul, can you argue with that?
                              So, what?

                              believe it!
