FFRF Puts ‘God Fixation Won’t Fix This Nation’ Billboards at Sites of DNC and RNC Conventions

That’s the billboard the Freedom From Religion Foundation is putting up in Tampa, Florida and Charlotte, North Carolina — the sites of the Republican and Democratic National Conventions, respectively.

“This is an equal-opportunity message to both political parties and all public officials. Essentially, we secularists, who comprise nearly a fifth of the U.S. population, are telling government officials that it’s time to get off your knees and get to work!” said FFRF Co-President Dan Barker.

“God fixation won’t fix our nation, or any nation. A preoccupation with religion in government and a political fear of offending religious lobbies is holding back our nation scientifically, intellectually and morally,” added Annie Laurie Gaylor, who co-directs FFRF.

Strong words, and much less offensive (I hope) to the general public that the billboards put up by American Atheists.
