If You're Pissed Off And You Know It, Slap Your Face

As I have repeatedly demonstrated, I don't have a problem with Atheists.  I mean, come on -- my faith is pretty weak if no one else can believe differently from me (given how individualized my beliefs are, pretty much NO ONE in the world believes like I do).  People believing differently doesn't make my faith any less valid.

That doesn't stop the complainers, though.

A group of Atheists in Sacramento, CA, are embarking on a campaign.  They have rented 55 billboards around the city that they are going to plaster with pictures of local residents and slogans like "Good without God" and such.

Folks, this billboard should matter as much to you as a billboard for "Abe Vigoda -- Live At The Hollywood Bowl."  You aren't interested in the product, so ignore it, and let those interested in the product embrace it.  I mean, there are bigger problems in the world than a bunch of Atheists going, "Hey!  Look at us!  We're still here!"

And to anyone suggesting the Atheists donate their money to a worthy cause instead of propaganda billboards?  Right back at you -- Christianity is the #1 religion in the world.  You have the blue ocean, how about kicking some of those funds to help the poor?  Lead by example, you dipshits.

The Paper Chase

Discussing Christian history (strange how everyone wants to talk to me about it now thanks to the Hannah Singer books) and I learned this little tidbit.  You can't get mad at me for finding this funny:

During the Cold War, America was on it's "God and country" kick and decided to help the people of Romania see the light.  To that end, they sent 20,000 Bibles to Romania.

The Romanians used the Bibles as toilet paper.  Literally *.  There was a shortage in the country at the time.

*  I was originally going to write, "No shit," but, well, you know….
