Radical atheists look for the worst in anyone and anything.
They want to eradicate Christianity from the world.
But when you see how they’re attacking Operation Christmas Child, you’ll be furious.
Operation Christmas Child is a popular event from Samaritan’s Purse that collects shoe boxes full of toys and necessities and delivers them to poor children all across the world.
You would think giving gifts to children in need would be something everyone could get on board with.
But a group of “Humanists” want to shut down Operation Christmas Child because it’s not “inclusive.”
They also take issue with the fact that the people packing the boxes may be Trump supporters.
Humanists UK also claims Operation Christmas Child is “anti-muslim.”
Christian Headlines writes:
Writing in The Guardian, Polly Toynbee expressed her displeasure with the popular ministry. Toynbee, who serves as a Vice President for Humanists UK, said the shoeboxes “are used for anti-Muslim proselytizing.” She said that because of Graham’s leadership, people who pack a shoebox may be “backing a pro-Trump, anti-gay message.”
She quotes Humanists UK’s spokesman Richy Thompson, who says that, “Those who donate to the scheme are well-intentioned and want to make an altruistic contribution, but donors in the UK should be aware of the nature of Operation Christmas Child’s activities and instead find a reputable and inclusive charity that has no ulterior motives and only has children’s best interests at heart.”
Samaritan’s Purse in Canada offers answers to the objections about the evangelistic aspect of Operation Christmas Child on their website. Answering the question, “Do you use the shoeboxes to coerce children and their families into Christianity,” they answer that they make no secret of their evangelistic endeavor and labor to meet spiritual needs and physical needs.
They say that there have been examples of providing the shoeboxes to areas where they were denied “the opportunity to share the Gospel.” They further explained, “We provide aid regardless of whether it results in opportunities to share our faith. And like the Good Samaritan, we bring hope and help to hurting people regardless of their religion or race.”
The main website for Operation Christmas Child also addresses a similar question and explains that “Boys and girls do not have to do or say anything to receive their gifts.”
Humanists UK openly admits that they have an issue with the Christians filling the boxes, and the idea that Samaritan’s Purse will share the Gospel if allowed.
Sadly, this comes as no surprise.
Once again, these radical so-called “progressives” are doing everything they can to oppose anything remotely related to the Christian faith.
They would rather Samaritan’s Purse stop Operation Christmas Child altogether, and forget the 146 million shoeboxes that have been donated since 1993, and millions more to come.
This rhetoric is not unique to the UK, however.
In the United States, the left wants to completely eradicate Christ from Christmas and replace it with their morally void radical atheism.
