In a press release posted on the group's website, the group said that today it
unveiled the organization’s newest billboard campaign, which exposes the foolishness of religion in the political landscape. The billboards feature assertions from Christianity and Mormonism that, according to American Atheists, have no place in politics.
I wonder if that means that only atheists can run. Anyway, the press release rushes ahead:
Mr. Silverman said, “The election of our leaders in the United States is one of the most important decisions that we as citizens make. Allowing our judgment to be clouded by sheer silliness is unacceptable. We want to show the people of our country the foolishness of mixing religion with politics.”
In case you can't read the billboards (below), one attacks Mormonism by saying,
God is a space alien.
Baptizes dead people.
Big Money, Big Bigotry
The one for Christians declares:
Sadistic God; Useless Savior
30,000+ versions of "truth"
Promotes hate; calls it "love."
No hate in any of that from the atheists I suppose they'd say. Just pointing out the truth.
In the case Murray v. Curlette, which banned prayer in public schools, the atheists sketched who they were in the petition:
"Your petitioners are atheists, and they define their lifestyle as follows. An atheist loves himself and his fellow man instead of a god. An atheist accepts that heaven is something for which we should work now – here on earth – for all men together to enjoy.
If the billboards are examples of American Atheists love of his "fellow man," I'd hated to see what it considers to be hatred. I wonder if the Democrats will disavow this hate speech or is their worshipping at the altar of diversity have room for Christians and Mormons.
