From The Blaze
“It’s Christmas time, again, which means that American Atheists (AA), an activist non-profit, is back with yet another overtly-offensive holiday billboard. In 2010, the group posted a message in New Jersey calling the Christmas story “a myth” (The Catholic League erected a response). And in 2011, AA followed that up with another campaign, featuring Jesus, Satan and Santa.
Now, there’s yet another billboard alleging that Christ’s story is a fable — and this time, it’s proudly displayed in New York City’s Time Square.”
“If you know God is a myth, you do not have to lie and call yourself Christian in order to have a festive holiday season,” Silverman [president of American Atheists] said. “You can be merry without the myth, and indeed, you should.”
While AA would argue that the billboard is intended to inspire atheists to “come out,” others will likely see it as offensive. The message will run through Jan. 10.
So, the American Atheists are OK with the purely fictional Santa but want to encourage people who are “trapped in their family’s religion to dump the God of yesteryear?”
I think that atheists are confusing Christians with well, atheists in their assertion that we are lying about God existing.
“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse” Romans 1:20
Christmas must be a hard time of year for God deniers and those who attempt to reduce Jesus to nothing more than a fictional character that has been borrowed from pagan mythology.
“As noted resurrection expert Gary Habermas said, he could count on one hand of the 2,000 or so publications that he surveyed from French, German, and English written during 1975 to the present of how many scholars attribute the story of the resurrection of Jesus as being borrowed from pagan mythology.” (CARM)
