Someone at UPI has a sense of humor.
“Everything that has happened shows just how vital our message is,” Shawn Jeffers, co-coordinator for the Cincinnati Coalition of Reason, said. “It proves our point, that bigotry against people who don’t believe in a god is still very real in America.”
The article then quotes some random voice from the opposition… to keep it fair and balanced, I presume. Maybe they couldn’t find anyone who had a good reason to oppose the billboard’s message, because they ended up using this guy:
Jack Jones of Downtown told the TV station he thinks the sign should not be put up.
“It’s atheist,” he said.
That’s it. End of quotation, end of story, end of debate.
Eloquent, reasonable atheist. Followed by a wingnut.
Also, I didn’t know billboards could adopt a faith, but I learned something new today.
As we know, all billboards need to be converted lest they burn in hell.
