Probably since the concept of billboards came about to advertise products, Tax exempt Christians organizations and Churches have paid to advertise God… as if an all powerful creator of the universe needed advertising. Isn’t he God, can’t he stop the sun from moving across the sky or something? In any case, while some of those Christian billboards have been along the lines of “come to our church and pay us money” type advertising, most are of the vain of “You are going to be tortured for all eternity unless you give us money,” type.
Over the last few years, atheist organizations have been trying to raise money to put up some billboards of our own which are designed to make people think critically about religion and to reach out to atheists who don’t know that atheist organizations actually exist. Our billboards have had such messages as, “Don’t believe in God? You are not alone,” “Beware of Dogma,” “Imagine no religion,” “Is belief in God necessary? Let’s be good for goodness sake,” and “There’s probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy life.” And every time one of our less than eternally damning billboards goes up there is always controversy. In fact, now Christian organizations have been using this competitive billboard war as a way of suckering more money from their faithful believers.
The thing is that we have toned our billboards down because we want to be defensible to the public. But many of these Christian groups don’t care about defensibility. So now we need to work together. I need your help. I would like to compile photos of the worst Christian billboards you can find. So if you are in a more religiously brainwashed area of the country or the world and you see a Christian billboard, snap a photo and e-mail it to me at DangerousTalk@gmail.com. Let me know where this billboard was found (city and state) and so next time one of our billboards is challenged by Bill O’Reily or Father Morris, we will be able to give them a little comparison… not that it will matter to them. But it will matter to the general public who we are trying to reach.
