Atheist activist upset that Christians helped Covid-19 patients.

Hemant Mehta, the atheist activist/propagandist who makes money off spreading anti-Christian hate, is as it again.  This time he is complaining about Franklin Graham‘s tent hospital in Central Park that was working under the charity Samaritan’s Purse.

Mehta is forced to admit:

There’s no evidence of discrimination against the patients — even the city acknowledged that. 

Yet, the holier-than-thou activist demands the city should have discriminated:

But it’s disturbing that NYC partnered with Graham’s group at all, given the inherent bigotry involved.

Again, he has to admit:

Again, none of that is to say the volunteers treated the patients poorly. 

Yet his sense of moral superiority and smugness is so extreme that he actually believes:

But all the good they did was outweighed by the hate they represented.


So if all that “hate they represented” outweighed the good they did, it stands to reason they should not have done any of that good.  They, with all that “hate they represented,” should have just stayed away. 

The logic of this position strongly suggests that Hemant Mehta believes that the 300+ people treated by Samaritan’s Purse should have remained untreated.  Maybe even a few should have died.  All better than NYC partnering with them, right?

Is anyone surprised that atheist activists would rather see people die of covid-19 if such death helps to support the cause of “social justice?”

    I wonder if he knows that there are a lot of religiously affiliated hospitals, like Catholic hospitals and Jewish hospitals and Lutheran hospitals etc, and that state and local governments partner with them all the time, and they receive government money routinely. I wonder if he knows that hospitals themselves were a religious idea, and that it’s only in the last couple of centuries that government and secular institutions started to take on that role.

  2. I suspect the real reason for his anger is that it damages his narrative of Christianity being evil.

  3. If I’m reading this right, Mehta says any good they did is outweighed by the hate they “represent.” Not they that are hateful people themselves, but that they “represent” something they deem “hateful.” They can’t, for but one moment, celebrate the idea of people being good to each other? They have to bring their prejudice into it and entice their followers to feel hatred again.

    Some people have an odd obsession with semiotics. I can’t help but think that the gun culture wars have a similar element in terms of those who obsess over the AR-15. If you eliminated all the deaths caused by AR-15s, it wouldn’t make a statistically significant dent in gun-related deaths overall, but that doesn’t seem to be the point. The point is what the AR-15 represents — whatever that is. Big scary gun, I guess? Symbolism is in the eye of the beholder, at least as concerns things which aren’t pure symbols in and of themselves.

    Those looking for connections with other discussion threads here should note the relationship between semiotics and magic. I’m no expert on magic, but a lot of it is based around symbolic representation. Voodoo dolls are the most obvious example, but I gather that all actions and ingredients in magic are there as representatives of some aspect of the desired outcome.
