Some atheists do all they can to wreck whatever respect they might have garnered over the years.
I am not a Christian, I am not religious, I follow no organized faith. I think atheists have as much right to not believe in God as theists have to believe. Most atheists (and agnostics) live quiet, decent lives, work hard, pay taxes, send their kids to schools and are basically kind and good to others.
Then, there are the idiots who just have to show their posteriors.
This year, the American Atheists Group has paid $20,000 to erect a sign on the New Jersey Turnpike which states in large letters: “You KNOW it’s a myth; This season, celebrate REASON.” The sign also depicts the three wise men on camels as a silhouette arriving at the manger. Now, what is that supposed to accomplish?
The president of the group, David Silverman, stated that their purpose was to attract closet atheists to come out of the closet. He also made challenging remarks such as, “If the religious right wants a war on Christmas, this is what they’re going to get.” Huh?
Just what we need in America, when a stealth Jihad is in process …
