Stolen Atheist Sign Is Recovered

Yes, I know it’s unChristian to steal, but I think in this case is was warrented.

CNN reports:

An atheist sign criticizing Christianity that was erected alongside a Nativity scene was taken from the Legislative Building in Olympia, Washington, on Friday and later found in a ditch.

An employee from country radio station KMPS-FM in Seattle told CNN the sign was dropped off at the station by someone who found it in a ditch.

I’m surprised that it wasn’t “altered” in some way.

“I thought it would be safe,” Freedom From Religion Foundation co-founder Annie Laurie Gaylor told CNN earlier Friday. “It’s always a shock when your sign is censored or stolen or mutilated. It’s not something you get used to.”

The sign, which celebrates (purports to celebrate) the winter solstice, (but was actually put in place to mock Christians) has had some residents and Christian organizations calling atheists Scrooges because they said it was attacking the celebration of Jesus Christ’s birth.

I think “some residents and Christian organizations” have a better grasp of what’s going on than the CNN reporter. This has nothing to do with “celebrating winter solstice”, and everything to do with hating on Christians, as the atheists cited in the article unintentionally make clear.

Humbugs.

  2. The sign’s message is there to counter the prevalence of all religions

    The sign was put next to a Christian Nativity Scene, ya big dope.

    Who’s got the persecution complex? I don’t feel it’s necessary to “counter” or “protest” atheist holidays like the so called “winter solstice”. I just laugh at it.

  3. Can someone educate me as to why a Nativity scene was placed on the Legislative Building property in Olympia, Washington in the first place?

    Is there no separation of church and state? Or does it only go for other religions other than Christianity?

  4. Tell me how a Nativity display on State property violates the Constitution:
    “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof”..
