It’s Monday….. Time for the Atties!!!!!
After an action packed Attie week last week, we are back to the normal Monday routine. But, this Monday’s edition is anything but routine. Why? Because we have two winners!!!!
I love going on long car rides. I find them relaxing, a time to think and listen to music. I love looking at the beauty of creation. So, nothing fries my candy bars than to see a big, ugly, stupid, horrible looking billboard gouging the blue sky with it’s hideousness. I used to live in Missouri, and they almost passed an antibillboard law, which I gladly voted for.
So, I hate it when churches or other Christian groups waste their time and effort on these eyesores. There are so much more worthy things on which they could be spending their money. Like what? Oh, how about feeding the poor, buying clothes for the naked or providing job training for those who need it in this economy. That’s just off the top of my head. Somehow, I didn’t hear Jesus say, “They will know you are my followers by the huge, stupid billboards that mare my creation”. So, to all the Christian groups and churches, this Attie award is for you.
But wait, you have to share it! It seems the Atheists, for all their claims to be brighter than Christians, have followed us into this absurd stupidity, spending money to tell people to smile, there is probably no god. Certainly, not all that offensive, but then again, most of the Christian ones aren’t that offensive either.
What gets me about the atheist billboards is pretty much similiar to the Christians use of them. Isn’t there something you can better spend your money on? I mean, I know you are trying to make other atheists comfortable about coming out. A worthy goal.
But, can’t you think of a better use of the money? Aren’t you supposed to be smarter than the rest of us? I think the “brights” just went dim on this one.
So, billboard groups, here are your Atties.
Oh, and St. Thomas, release a whole pack of hounds…….
