More attacks against the reason for the Season …
“Our reason for doing it during the holidays is there are an awful lot of agnostics, atheists and other types of non-theists who feel a little alone during the holidays because of its association with traditional religion.”
Coming soon to a bus near you in the Washington, DC area during the Christmas season … “Why believe in a God? Just be good for goodness’ sake”. The campaign against Christmas, Christ and God is in full holiday swing. Under the guise of agnostics, atheists and other types of non-theists feeling alone during Christmas, the American Humanist Association has begun a $40,000 ad campaign against God and religion. The agnostics have want to take their atheism message for a ride this year. Pay close attention to their anti-God message as its not just about personal morality. Think its not, check out the double talk.
Edwords said the purpose isn’t to argue that God doesn’t exist or change minds about a deity, although “we are trying to plant a seed of rational thought and critical thinking and questioning in people’s minds.”
The group defines humanism as “a progressive philosophy of life that, without theism, affirms our responsibility to lead ethical lives of value to self and humanity.”
Maybe if agnostics, atheists and other types of non-theists found God and Jesus Christ in their lives, maybe, just maybe they would not feel so empty, so useless and so alone. Christmas is about the birth of Christ, why wouldn’t people who claim they have no belief in it feel alone? For people who claim to use reason and rational thought, that hardly seems the case. Folks, find God … he loves ya and maybe you would not feel so alone. Just a thought.
Ads proclaiming, “Why believe in a god? Just be good for goodness’ sake,” will appear on Washington, D.C., buses starting next week and running through December. The American Humanist Association unveiled the provocative $40,000 holiday ad campaign Tuesday.
In lifting lyrics from “Santa Claus is Coming to Town,” the Washington-based group is wading into what has become a perennial debate over commercialism, religion in the public square and the meaning of Christmas.
“We are trying to reach our audience, and sometimes in order to reach an audience, everybody has to hear you,” said Fred Edwords, spokesman for the humanist group. “Our reason for doing it during the holidays is there are an awful lot of agnostics, atheists and other types of non-theists who feel a little alone during the holidays because of its association with traditional religion.”
So agnostics say just be good when man is prone to sin.
“It’s a stupid ad,” he said. “How do we define ‘good’ if we don’t believe in God? God in his word, the Bible, tells us what’s good and bad and right and wrong. If we are each ourselves defining what’s good, it’s going to be a crazy world.”
Also on Tuesday, the Orlando, Fla.-based Liberty Counsel, a conservative Christian legal group, launched its sixth annual “Friend or Foe Christmas Campaign.” Liberty Counsel has intervened in disputes over nativity scenes and government bans on Christmas decorations, among other things.
“It’s the ultimate Grinch to say there is no God at a time when millions of people around the world celebrate the birth of Christ,” said Mathew Staver, the group’s chairman and dean of the Liberty University School of Law. “Certainly, they have the right to believe what they want but this is insulting.”
