Yeah I agree Flower. So many of their campaigns seem to be too aggressive, but that is how they role.  I would've like to see "Happy Bday USA - Proud American, Proud Atheist"   or something like that.

Yeah, I think they are idiots to be honest.  It's almost like they are being sponsored by Fox News to do this, just so that they can have another target focus their hatred on. And it's not the fact that it's aggressive that makes it bad, but just the fact that they are going in completely the wrong direction.  I also don't like to see atheism linked with patriotism.  Atheism is simply the lack of belief in gods.  The USA is a secular nation, so religious views do not a patriot make.

 

Sigh... we need more public figures like Sam Harris.  I'm glad he's the youngest of the "Four Horsemen."
