Donation Offer

Calvary greeting from Mrs. Rophina Meigh

My dear, all the glory, honour and thanks giving belong to our Almighty God that gives us new day, strength and spiritual blessings. The Lord Jesus is so gracious, full of mercy and love. Praise the Lord; it is my pleasure to know you. Indeed, is so privilege that from among others, God have chosen you to divulge, something so hard to accept. My name is Mrs. Rophina Meigh married to Late Eng. Pharabis Meigh who was a contractor before his sudden death.

We were married for 17 yrs without a child, due to customs of my late husband’s community, I was denied all inheritance from my beloved husband and his family pushed me out of my matrimonial home due to my childless. I am now staying in the hospital where I’m undergoing throat/breast cancer treatment which has been giving me a sleepless night. But, no matter reports from the doctor, I strongly believe that Jehovah Ralph, the God that Healeth thee, Jehovah Jireh, the great provider will surely confirm his word in 1 Peter 2:24 upon my life because the Holy Scripture has made us to understand that with Faith, we shall sub due every
situation in our lives.

Dear, since my present condition will not allow me handling my promise to the house of the Lord, I decided to donate this funds (8.920 million Euros) which is the only inheritance funds from my beloved husband that is under my name as the next of kin, which his entire family does not know anything about the deposited funds by my husband and will never and never know, hence their evil maltreatments to my life immediately after the funeral of my husband. Now, this money is still with the financial institution where my husband deposited the funds and registered it as charitable belongings. I know that after you finish reading this message, it will be difficult for you to believe due to volume of amount that is involved but as a Christian that worship God in trust and Spirit, I want you to go into prayers, seek the face of God in order to have his confirmation over his divine directions to a sister that you have never seen before in all your life (The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, Psalm 28:7). I strongly believe that the good God who directed me to you as the rightful person to handle this donation funds will surely speak to your hearing and understanding. Call to me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things which you do not know (Jeremiah 33:3).

I wait for your reply with your personal information, full name, home address and telephone number including your ID immediately after your communication with God who is able to open things of the secret to everyone that obey his commandments and work in his glorious ways, so that I will handle it to my late husband’s lawyer for him to obtain a change of ownership of documents covering this money at the financial institution to your name as the new beneficiary chosen by God to use for the survival of poor people. Praying for my situation is the most essential thing I need from you now as my fellow brethren in the Lord.

Thanks and remain blessed.
Mrs. Rophina Meigh

Atheists are the most despised minority in America

A 2006 University of Minnesota study revealed that atheists are the most despised minority in America. But this is not news to atheists, it’s just the most recent in a long series of surveys showing that Americans are very bigoted and prejudiced against atheists. For as long as organizations have been asking Americans about atheists, Americans have been responding that they wouldn’t treat atheists as equals to theists and Christians.

Sample question from this most recent survey:
This group does not at all agree with my vision of American society…

Atheist: 39.6%
Muslims: 26.3%
Homosexuals: 22.6%
Hispanics: 20%
Conservative Christians: 13.5%
Recent Immigrants: 12.5%
Jews: 7.6%

There is a lot of anti-atheist bigotry in the US and around the world, in spite of the fact that atheists are among the most moral people. Statistics consistently show that atheists (on average) are smarter and display more tolerance toward others than theists. They are also more likely to stay married and are less likely to end up in jail or commit crimes.

Divorce rates by religion (1999):

Jews: 30%
Born-again Christians: 27%
Other Christians: 24%
Atheists, Agnostics: 21%

The Federal Bureau of Prisons keeps statistics on religious affiliations of inmates (1997):

Catholic: 39.164%
Protestant: 35.008%
Rasta: 1.987%
Jewish: 1.773%
Church of Christ: 1.744%
Pentecostal: 1.463%
Jehovah Witness: 0.890%
Adventist: 0.831%
Orthodox: 0.502%
Mormon: 0.399%
Atheist: 0.209%

Atheists consist of about 10-15% of the US population but are only 0.21% of the prison populations. So, the vast majority of atheists are morally sound without the need of a supernatural watchdog. It is important for atheists to stand up and be recognized in order to break the negative and wrong stereotypes of atheism.

On a lighter note, here is an amusing hate post from a ThinkAtheist forum

    “you are a peice of mother –and when you die you will indeed go to . dont post no about athiests and why there is no god. how the you think the world was created? all of a sudden 1day there was a big bang..and BOOM there was a world??? you stupid —who created everything? where is it all coming from? answer these questions and I might conform to atheism. !”

LOL! I couldn’t make this stuff up! You have to be very smart to really understand how everything was created. It was created by an invisible man up in the sky. It took him a whole week to put everything together. Well, actually it took only 6 days, then he needed a day off. He only made one man, but then he decided to rip out one of the guys ribs to make a woman. Everything was fine and dandy until that talking snake came along….and the rest is history. Oh yes, this makes perfect sense.

America Is Becoming Less Christian, Less Religious


ABC News:
American Religious Identification Survey Finds Major Denominations Losing Members

In one of the most dramatic shifts, 15 percent of Americans now say they have no religion — a figure that’s almost doubled in 18 years. Americans with no religious preference are now larger than all other major religious groups except Catholics and Baptists.

More from CNN in the video below. However, unfortunately this is a very one-sided report. They really needed an atheist in this discussion. We are not “Hippie Dippie”, “Heathens”; we are average Americans who have evolved enough to realize that religion is superstitious nonsense that causes more harm than good in the world.

Addendum 3.10.09: Here’s another article from The Huffington Post, The Silent Minority

“I’ve always been amused at the idea that a religious person can say that an atheist will burn in hell as a result of their beliefs, and that is not considered offensive; but if an atheist says that believing in God makes no sense, that is considered deeply offensive. One person is charging the other with faulty logic; the other is charging them with a base immorality that warrants eternal torture. How is the former even vaguely more insulting than the latter?”
