CNN Article - "Dueling billboards face off in Christmas controversy"

Found this article. Read it. Began reading the comments. Got fed up and frustrated with the people commenting. Decided to share it with T|A.

Some of the people commenting... I swear to God... ;)

Anyway, take it for what it's worth. Love to hear your guys' thoughts on this. And Happy Solstice!

I'm personally very supportive of the billboard. As a college student, it seems every other day I get handed flyers from campus religious groups, usually Christians. Christianity has its hands in pretty much every aspect of sociopolitical discourse in this country - from abortion to stem cell research to gay marriage to ... etc.

Essentially, I think that when they stop shoving their beliefs down our throats, we can stop giving them level-headed, thoughtful, and rational reasons to not believe. Because by that point they'll all be atheists.
:)
they should put up another 1 attacking the catholic league. you know what's real? pedophilia.
Agreed, they need to grow a pair; I went to a Catholic high school and I totally understand where you're coming from, unfortunately.
Ouch. Alabama doesn't sound like the most atheist-friendly area. I'm surprised that teacher has any sort of degree; creationists are some of the dumbest people around.
Hope things get better for you :)
Oh yeah, it definitely gets better in college. I'm at UMD now and there's actually a pretty big atheist population here, hopefully you'll find some of us wherever you end up. The first campus Freethought Society meeting was so exciting ;)
A degree is something virtual. It is not necessarily representing the teacher.
Did you report that teacher?
I would have applauded.
