Grandstanding at Christmas, the Korihorites give Washington a black eye.

Christmas / Winder Solstice sign put in the rotunda of the Washington State Capitol:

At this season of the Winter Solstice may reason prevail.
There are no gods, no devils, no angels, no heaven or hell.
There is only our natural world.
Religion is but myth and superstition that hardens hearts and enslaves minds.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation has been all over the US attacking our religious institutions. Just like Korihor...

The reason the Book of Mormon speaks to this American people is to make aware of the tricks the deceivers will pull. It is important that people read all of Alma 30 to get the full meaning of a Secularist's attack on God, why and how.

Starting with priestcraft, Alma 14:32 For those who did not belong to their church did indulge themselves in asorceries, and in bidolatry or cidleness, and in dbabblings, and in eenvyings and fstrife; wearing costly apparel; being glifted up in the pride of their own eyes; persecuting, lying, thieving, robbing, committing whoredoms, and murdering, and all manner of wickedness; nevertheless, the law was put in force upon all those who did transgress it, inasmuch as it was possible.

And on to anti-Christ, Korihor outlines a doctrine well traveled by the secularists:

A. There is no god.
Alma 30:13 O ye that are bound down under a afoolish and a vain hope, why do ye yoke yourselves with such foolish things? Why do ye look for a Christ?

B. Prove there is a god.
For no man can bknow of anything which is to come.

C. You have to be crazy to believe in god.
14 Behold, these things which ye call prophecies, which ye say are handed down by holy prophets, behold, they are foolish traditions of your fathers.

B. Prove there is a god.
15 How do ye know of their surety? Behold, ye cannot know of things which ye do not asee; therefore ye cannot know that there shall be a Christ.

C. You have to be crazy to believe in god.
16 Ye look forward and say that ye see a remission of your sins. But behold, it is the effect of a afrenzied mind; and this derangement of your minds comes because of the traditions of your fathers, which lead you away into a belief of things which are not so.

D. The Secularist's hallmark rationalization: Moral Relativism.
... every man afared in this life according to the management of the creature; therefore every man prospered according to his genius, and that every man conquered according to his strength; and bwhatsoever a man did was cno crime.

E. Finally, accusing good men of the Secularist agenda.
31 And he did rise up in great aswelling words before Alma, and did revile against the bpriests and teachers, accusing them of leading away the people after the silly traditions of their fathers, for the sake of glutting on the labors of the people.
