The Bradenton Herald report that the billboards, which targeted the faiths of President Barack Obama and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, went up two weeks ago and were intended to be displayed for the duration of the national conventions.
Amanda Knief, managing director of American Atheists, said a report from Fox News on Wednesday about the billboards led to a national outpouring of “vitriol, threats and hate speech against
our staff, volunteers and Adams Outdoor Advertising.” Read more: here
”vitriol, threats and hate speech against…” …. and what does she consider her Billboard to be? A love hug?
Stupid is, as stupid does. Not that all atheists are necessary “stupid”, but their lack of knowledge is as immense as is their lack of consideration for other people. People who believe in God, far out number those who do not.
These atheists have made a decision to close their minds, their spirit and any rationale toward God. How anyone can look at the beauty of nature or a living creature, and not see God’s design, seems rather remarkable. The intricacy’s of the human body can’t be created in a laboratory, nor have all monkey ‘evolved’ into humans. It’s all pretty illogical to those who Believe.
It’s their personal choice to ‘believe’ in whatever they choose. I have no problem with their feelings or atheistic beliefs. Believers in God don’t try to force non- believers to participate (racial Islam excluded). Most atheist choose to ignore Christmas and a Nativity Scene. They don’t have to demand it be removed, just as the Jews don’t demand it’s removed to appease their sensibilities.
What I do find rather repugnant is the loud atheist’s inability to simply allow those who have “religious” convictions and faith in God, to go about their faith without being called “haters” and purveyors of “hate speech”. They don’t seem capable of living their lives without condemning those who Believe. There is a segment of atheist who must continually malign, in many different ways, the people who do have strong beliefs in an Almighty, Compassionate God.
There’s no point in arguing or even presenting the gospel to these people, since in most likelihood, it will be swiftly rejected. God is the only One capable of intervening in their closed minds. But there was a time, which seems not so long ago, that the majority overruled the minority – atheist. Now the majority are told sternly and irreparably that they must accept the minorities “rights” to be as devilish and hateful as they choose – after all, that’s only “fair”.
The billboard will be removed and no doubt, the atheist will wail and moan at the hatefully “Christians” who won’t let them rattle their swords of discontent.
Let them rattle away. As far as I’m concerned, I can give them ample room and consideration for their beliefs. Unfortunately, this minority refuses to give others the same consideration.
