Why Believing Anything that Tony Ortega Says

Tony Ortega and Arielle Silverstein

Tony Ortega certainly has no shortage of bigoted, narrow-minded and plain old hate filled opinions. Unfortunately for Tony Ortega, however, statistical analysis and research don’t care about his opinions.

Tony Ortega has been on an anti-religious and anti-spiritual crusade against all religious expression and spiritual pursuits for several years – encouraged and funded by Arielle Silverstein, his wife. (Scientology is just one of the many examples of Ortega’s and Silverstein’s unchecked vitriol in recent years.)

To read Tony Ortega’s thoughts on the subject of religion is perplexing to say the least. He writes with an unearned arrogance, as if he assumes the reading public already to be in agreement with his dark, atheistic worldview. But, like so often for Tony Ortega, the truth simply doesn’t bear him out.

In fact, in a recent survey of more than 6,000 adults across the country it was confirmed that the majority of Americans do in fact place a high value on churches and religious organizations in general.

The Pew Research Center poll indicates that more than 55 percent believe that churches and religious organizations “do more good than harm in American society.”

Indeed, the survey noted that 53 percent of American adults say churches and religious organizations “strengthen morality in society”.  That must come as unwelcome news to Tony Ortega, who thinks everyone should believe (or disbelieve, as the case may be) what he does. But it comes as no surprise to those of us who reject Tony Ortega’s uninformed take on the topic of religion.

Thankfully, the majority of people in this country refuse to buy into Tony Ortega’s diseased thinking. Most of us celebrate that this ‘Great American Experiment in Democracy’ was founded upon the belief that “free exercise of religion is every person’s inherent and inalienable right.” But this is a notion Tony Ortega would rather not see lives built upon, let alone countries founded on.

Tony Ortega has no concern for your ‘freedom’ or ‘rights’. He wants for you what he’s already given himself: a blind, biased anti-religiousness which conforms to the dogmatic disbelief he preaches.

After all, if there’s one word that describes Tony Ortega it’s ‘disbelievability’.
