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