Hey, Nice Billboard…

Share this Shit

Athiest+Billboard

There’s a big stink in St. Louis about the above billboard.
Not the message it’s conveying. Just it’s existence.
This billboard has been up for a couple weeks now and it was the talk of the town when it went up. People were up in arms.
I like to think I’m a tolerant guy. Anyone who knows me or reads my posts knows that I’m not religious but I certainly don’t condemn anyone for being religious. Now I DO like to debate those who contradict their beliefs with their actions. Believe me. That happens a lot.
People are very upset at the existence of this billboard. I’ve had a couple friends tell me that it offends them.
The billboard states “Don’t Believe in God? You’re not alone.” and then gives a web address for an Agnostic and Athiest website.It doesn’t state that God doesn’t exist. But it might as well have. Many Christians have taken affront to this. Let’s be honest. Should they be offended?
I think not.

You know what billboards I’m sick of seeing?
This guy’s:

Faith+Billboard

There’s two of these within three miles of my house. If this guy has the right (and the money) to put up his own billboard so should this organization.

This is America. Remember? And for all of you who want to throw in the fact that “America’s forefathers were Christians and this great country was built upon Christian morals…” I would bet a fortune (or at least twenty bucks) that if Ben Franklin or Thomas Jefferson were around today they would fight for EVERYONE’S freedom, God-fearing or not. Of course, they’d get rid of their slaves right away.

Thomas Jefferson, in fact, had some forward-thinking ideas on religion and the evil that men are capable of doing in its name.

I believe the greaterstlcor.org could have just made a more simple, meaningful billboard by using less “offensive” wording. It would have just taken one word?


“THINK”


Or is that too high-concept?


Whatever, every idiot out there has a right to believe what they choose. They don’t, however, have the right to judge someone else. Lest they be judged?

Ha, six years of Catholic school still sticks.

    I'm a Christian and not offended at all. The Bible clearly states that FEW will go to Heaven, not all, not alot, not most, but few. It also states there is a way that SEEMS right to man but IS the way of death. Where Christians go wrong is going up in arms about what others believe or not. The Lord tells us not to argue with people. We know the truth and He wants us to share the Gospel but not argue with a non believer. I wish everyone was going to Heaven but unfortunately they're not. That's life. Keep up the interesting stuff guys. I love and pray for everyone. Christians hurt themselves with other people.

    One more thing though Taco. Non Christians should remember sometimes that if a Christian is trying to get someone to believe in Jesus and we're right, that's a pretty big gesture, wouldn't you say? Food for thought… Ben

    Excellent comment Ben. Thanks for reading and commenting. It takes a strong man to sign his name to a comment, that also was admired.

    We may need you to comment more often to counterpoint our anti-religion leanings.

    See at the party,
