Atheist billboard: ‘This season, celebrate reason’
There is so much good stuff to blog about write now, but I need to be judicious today because I’m a bit pressed for time. I’ll start with the Christmas wars story that my wife sent me. This via CNN:
To be sure, I’ve never been a believer in the war on Christmas brouhaha. I just don’t see the substance. But I can’t pretend that this billboard isn’t a direct attack on Christmas.
And the New Jersey billboard is not the only one that atheist organizations have put up recently to challenge religious belief. These ones have fared much better than the “Imagine No Religion” billboard that had a short run in Rancho Cucamonga two years ago. But what do they really achieve?
That has been a hotly debated question by atheists, and how they answer it depends on what side of the aisle they sit on.
