The Town Of Liberal, An United States Experiment In Godlessness That Failed

 

Even the United States has its own atheistic example in the formation of the town of Liberal, Missouri, where the goal was a "'town without a church, [w]here unbelievers could bring up their children without religious training,' and where Christians were not allowed." It took only a few short years, however, for this atheistic "paradise" in middle America to unravel.

Since Liberal was started there has not been an average of one birth per year of infidel parents. Feticide is universal. The physicians of the place say that a large portion of their practice has been trying to save females from consequences of feticide. In no town is slander more prevalent, or the charges more vile.... Nine-tenths of those now in town would leave if they could sell their property. More property has been lost by locating in the town than has been made in it.... Hundreds have been deceived and injured and ruined financially. ~ Braden

Indeed, the details Braden originally reported about Liberal, Missouri, on May 2, 1885 were found to be completely factual. ~ apologeticspress.org

 Named after the Liberal League in Lamar, Missouri (to which the town's organizer belonged), Walser's objective was "to found a town without a church, [w]here unbelievers could bring up their children without religious training," and where Christians were not allowed (Thompson, 1895; Becker, 1895). "His idea was to build up a town that should exclusively be the home of Infidels...a town that should have neither God, Hell, Church, nor Saloon" (Brand, 1895). ~ apologeticspress.org

It took only a few short years for Liberal's unattractiveness and inconsistency to be exposed: People cannot exclude God from the equation, and expect to remain a "sober, trustworthy" town. Godlessness equals unruliness, which in turn makes a repugnant, immoral people. The town of Liberal was a failure.  ~ apologeticspress.org

Although the town of Liberal still exists today (with a population of about 800 people), it is not the same town it was in 1895. At present, at least seven religious groups associated with Christianity exist within this city that once banned Christianity and all that it represents.  ~ apologeticspress.org
