Defacing an atheist sign

An atheist group in North Carolina had a billboard which read “One Nation Indivisible”. Some meat heads decided to deface it.

Unknown vandals unhappy about atheists’ billboard in Charlotte, N.C., spray-painted “Under God” on the ad, the city’s atheist association discovered Monday. The defaced message will remain in place until after July 4, the group reports, which is the soonest that workers can furnish a fresh billboard image. Here’s how the vandalized billboard now looks:

Acts like this aren’t so uncommon. A few believers will get angry about being forced to actually think and use logic, get frustrated, and take out their aggression. And don’t they just always love to do it in a way that ignores the secular history of the United States?

The attacked group is taking this pretty well, I think.

“It was done by one or two people off on their own who decided their only recourse was vandalism rather than having a conversation,” Charlotte Atheists & Agnostics spokesman William Warren said. “It does show how needed our message is. As atheists, we want to let people know we exist and that there’s a community here.”

  1. You just knew it was going to happen. Once again, the religious right shows it’s ugly insides.

  2. Yes the whole of us. In the same way that since I found a hair in my McDonald’s cheeseburger all McDonald’s cheeseburgers have some burger girls hair in them.

  3. Analogies are way beyond you, Nate. Too bad…LOL

  4. Having an off day, usually I have some pretty good analogies. Shame. In the middle of a move, I’m not entirely sure where my supply of socks has gone…

    Bigger troubles than a billboard being spray painted. How many times do you think it happens everyday?

  5. GOOD FOR THEM! TRUE CHRISTIANS are WARRIORS, not doormats. JESUS said it… good enough for me!

    May they strike again – repeatedly.

  6. I declare Poe’s Law.

  7. I sometimes feel the same way about other claims made in this very blog. There aren’t just religious nuts, there are many other kinds of nuts, all of which planters would reject.

    The onion is hard to tell from real news sometimes for a similar reason.
