Freedom From Religion Foundation Sues Rancho Cucamonga

November 26, 2008

imaginenoreligionbillboardThe Freedom From Religion Foundation has sued the City of Rancho Cucamonga over it’s involvement in the removal of their “Imagine No Religion” billboard.  The complaint states:

“The bedrock principle underlying the scope of the free speech protection of the First Amendment is that government officials may not interfere with the expression of an idea simply because some persons allegedly consider the idea offensive or disagreeable to their views.”

Where the hell did these pinkos get this idea, Karl Marx?  It’s not like we have that kind of culture eroding hippie-heathen trash in our laws.  Just ask Chuck Norris, the free speech thing is… umm… protecting your freedom to speak to… Jesus… yeah that’s it!

Australian Atheists Not Even Allowed on Back of Bus

November 26, 2008

kangarooThe Atheist Foundation of Australia was interested in following the example of the British Humanist Association and the American Humanist Assosication who have atheistic bus ads on busses in London and Washington DC.  When they tried to buy the bus ads the company that controls bus ads in Australia, as well as much of the billboards, refused to sell ads to them.  These are the horrifying hate statements they wanted to terrify the pious kangaroos, wallabies, and koalas with:

  • Atheism: Because there is no credible evidence
  • Celebrate reason: Sleep in on Sunday mornings
  • Atheism: Celebrate reason

As you can clearly see these people are dangerous.  Credible evidence?  Reason?  SLEEPING IN?  If people slept in on Sunday morning they might not be hung over from Saturday night.  If they’re not hung over on Sunday they might enjoy their day and be happier at work on Monday.  What happens Monday night?!  It’s a slippery slope that leads to the downfall of civilization.  Australia, we salute you for silencing this dangerous voice of joy and reason.

Christian Bus Ads Compete With Atheist Ads, Omit Details

November 26, 2008


The British ministry MEMO, a 125 year old outfit which proselytizes on public transportation, has unveiled a new bus ad which will cohabit with the Dawkins backed atheist bus ads in London.  The new ads seek to convey the positive side of Christianity by quoting an angel saying “Don’t be afraid! I am here with good news for you”(Luke 2:10).

The ads failed to convey what exactly the good news was.  Maybe this is the news:

“I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell.” (Matthew 5:2-29 NIV)

Thanks but no thanks.  I’ll keep my eye and take my good news from CNN.
