I was walking the dogs with my husband yesterday. One of the houses down the street had a sign on their door, “This House Believes”. I said, “Look they have immaginary friends, Nuts”. If I were to hang a sign on my door, “This House Does Not Believe”, I bet you this would get a reaction. Why is it okay for Christians to have their saintly statues on their lawns and signs on their doors. When a proud Atheist displays their thoughts, we get attacked. I am sure many of you have seen messages on buses like, “Why Believe in God, Be Good For Goodness Sake”, or other signs. These supposedly god loving people go crazy and are out for blood when people discount their beliefs. So, who are the better people? Atheist by far.

Some of my neighbors drop off invitations to their house to celebrate their faith. I would like to drop off a copy of “Do you Honestly Follow The Christian Doctrine” at their door.

When I own my own house, I'm going to put a sign up that says "Beware the invisible dragon in my garage. Only I can feel his presence, but he can still burn you with holy fire. The invisible pink unicorn in my back yard also has blood on her horn. Also, watch out for falling teapots."

When your entire belief system is based on fear or the reward for doing what is right it is no small leap to attack any minority group that they imagine is a threat. African Americans were hunted down by believers with a noose in one hand and a bible in the other. Change and growth are not apart of the Christian vocabulary. The dogma is so deep seeded that it leeks into all aspects of their life. They want to control what's on TV, in movies, in the classroom and what's in your yard!

You forgot to warn people not to trip over His noodly appendage, Mario. You Godless Heathen!

What? Are you trying to injure people? ;o)

I would like to hang a sign that says, "No soliciting - souls included"

This just reminds me of the house down the street that puts up lights every Xmas that read in 12 inch letters "Jesus is the reason for the season". I really, really, really, want to drop off a little informational pamphlet that explains how just about every one of their xmas traditions is actually an adaptation of a pagan ritual or custom, how the day is specifically chosen not for any Jesus-related reason, but rather because it coincided with pagan celebrations, and how those lights that they put up have nothing whatsoever to do with Christianity.

The season will come around, even without Jesus. Without Christians, it might still be celebrated for the reasons for which it has always been celebrated.

As many of you have already noted, if I were to put those lights up in MY yard and have them read "Jesus had nothing to do with any of this"; I would probably be physically attacked and my house vandalized for as long as I live there.

I think next holiday season I'm going to go around saying "Happy Saturnalia".

You should put up lots of atheist statements, and then set up a few security cameras so when they come to vandalize your property you can sue them. I get so irritated that Christians say atheists are angry and hateful people, yet they're the ones that almost always are the agressors in a conflict. I guess all that crap about freedom of religion and expression doesn't apply the atheists.

badwolf42, I know what you mean about all the holiday decorations. I have to listen to TV commercials in my area in December saying, "Lets put Christ back in Christmas"

Lindsey, It gets me mad too that Atheists are portrayed as angry hateful people. I don't remember who said this but, "Religion is what is wrong with the world".

Cheryl - The campaign to "put christ back in christmas" is especially egregious. It's openly hostile to other religions that have holidays at the same time. It makes the implicit statement that those days and that time of year is exclusively for Christians. Jews should lay low and try not to make too much fuss, and forget about Kwanzaa! One need not even leave the realm of belief to see the overt hate in that campaign.
