This is response to a blog posting over at Blag Hag by new found Purdue atheist friend, Jen. Apparently, some “Christian” folks have taken to defacing her student atheist group flyers.
If this was the only case I had heard of, I would dismiss it as a bunch of Purdue cranks who are sad because their football team sucks, so they have nothing better to do. But, sadly, this isn’t the only case I have heard about. Apparently, it happens here at Ohio State and other campuses’ throughout the country.
So, as a campus minister, I’m telling all of you Christians who think that defacing atheists flyers is a good way to spread the gospel, STOP IT. Somehow, when Jesus told us to go and make disciples of all people, I don’t think he had in mind defacing someone else’s property. You are not doing Jesus any favors and in fact, make the rest of us look stupid.
And, other campus ministers, please go out of your way and make every effort it’s not one of your students. True, it might be some idiot who doesn’t care about Jesus or Dawkins. But, you had better make sure by not even laughing about such stupidity.
And atheists, feel free to post this reponse on anything you want. I’ll gladly answer for it.
