Atheist Christmas Billboard Campaign
I'm an Atheist. But these Atheist organizations are operated by cowards who, for some reason, feel threatened and intimidated by another person's beliefs. They can only defend their own beliefs by attacking someone else's.
I would even be willing to go out on a limb here and suggest these organizations are wholly liberal leaning. Not all Atheists are liberals. But those who are imposing their beliefs by demeaning others are. Just as leftists must attack others for having different opinions politically, these leftist Atheists must attack others for having different opinions spiritually.
But they are also cowards for another reason. Christianity is not a threat to Atheists. Our Christian nation was designed to protect everyone equally despite personal religious beliefs. Still these Atheists continue to attack Christianity. Yet, Islam, which routinely executes Atheists in Islamic countries, is ignored by these organizations.
There is a double standard. It is a double standard that only exposes their cowardice. Do these group post billboards during Ramadan? Of course not. That would require more testicular fortitude than they have.
They want demean those who disagree. They want to spread their hate under the guise of tolerance. But they also want to keep their heads.
An atheist organization is beginning a billboard campaign in Sacramento, California to encourage other atheists to "come out of the closet" as the Christmas season has believers turning their focus to faith in God.
According to a local ABC news affiliate, the Greater Sacramento Chapter of the Madison, Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation is erecting 55 billboards on Monday just as the Christmas season gets into full swing. The campaign, part of an ongoing endeavor titled, "Out of the Closet," hopes to let atheists know that having God in your life is not a necessity.
My biggest complaint with Christian conservatives is that they tend to lump all Atheists with these idiots. Most Atheists are not like this. Most Atheists don't care if you want to believe in a higher power or not. Just don't impose your spiritual beliefs on them.
When you equate all Atheists with those in these organizations, it is no different than equating all Christians with the Westboro Baptist loons. Stop judging.
And have a Merry Christmas.
