Anti-Creationism Protesters at MTRA

By Douglas V. Gibbs

Last night the Murrieta-Temecula Republican Assembly hosted a speaker, Pat Roy, of Genesis Apologetics, to discuss the "Debunking Evolution" study system.

We advertised in the newspaper, making public the intent of our meeting, and it attracted atheist protesters.

It was comical, really.  Our meetings are held at the Temecula City Hall Conference Room in the evening, so public traffic is essentially non-existent.  The people coming to the meeting are not going to be convinced by the protesters to change their mind.  So, why protest?

As a political activist, I know that a rally is sort of like a tree in a forest.  If it falls, but nobody is there to witness its fall, it is as if it did not happen.  Sure, I am writing about the protesters, but ultimately, their protest was an effort in futility.

One of the signs read, "I am a Creationist, I believe man created God."

I thanked them for being Americans, and acting upon their God-given rights.  The look I received in response was one of puzzlement.  "God-given rights?  How could that be so?" must've been the questions in their minds.  But if your rights are not naturally given by God, then from whence do they come?

If they are government given, then that is a call for tyranny.  

Government giveth, and government taketh away, I suppose.

The other thing I found fascinating was the fact that the protesters are upset in the first place.  While they held signs that said things like "Science, Not Religion," I find it interesting that these people are so offended by a God that they do not believe to exist.  Besides, the whole point of having Mr. Roy was not to hold church, but to discuss the science behind Creationism, and where the science of Evolution is grossly flawed.  In other words, this is not about science versus religion, but science versus science.

Like the liberal left, however, the religious followers of evolution refuse to acknowledge that concept that there may be any alternative opinions.  And, they are definitely not willing to hear about all of the holes in their evolution argument.

Their belief system is not as inclusive as Christianity, either.  For Christians, all are welcome who are willing to receive Christ.
