Like I’ve been saying…it’s that time of year, again…the Christmas season is upon us, which means militant atheists are out in full force to prove to everyone just how goshdarn cute and clever they can be with their anti-Christmas sentiments. I didn’t bother to do a post about this bit of obnoxiousness when it appeared outside the heavily-traveled Lincoln Tunnel between New York and New Jersey, because, really, what can you say to people who are that determined to be killjoys? Do you just ignore them…what?
But good old, Bill Donahue of The Catholic League, is having none of it, and put up a response billboard:
“We decided to counterpunch after a donor came forward seeking to challenge the anti-Christmas statement by American Atheists,” Catholic League President Bill Donahue said in a statement on the group’s website. “Our approach is positive, and services the common good. Theirs is negative, and is designed to sow division. It’s what they do.”
Which billboard do you suppose is more appreciated?
A Sunday rumination from Frances R. Porretto, November 16, 2008:
First, number 3: “There’s probably no God.” One aspect of the debate over the existence of a supernatural realm that enrages anti-theists is that there’s no indisputable evidence either for or against the proposition. Their militancy is as unverifiable and unfalsifiable as any religious faith. Therefore, according to Porretto’s Partition, it constitutes a faith of its own. (Beware: he who says that to an anti-theist had better have the number of the local ambulance service on speed-dial.)
