Arkansas Church Responds to Atheist Billboard with One Embracing Doubters

Another church is responding to American Atheists’ recent billboard campaign featuring a girl writing a letter that says, “Dear Santa, All I want for Christmas is to skip church! I’m too old for fairy tales.”

This time, it’s Grace Church in Alma, Arkansas:

Grace Church will run the billboard from Wednesday through Dec. 24, with the message, “Questions, Doubts, Curiosity? All welcome at Grace.”

“The ad will start on Wednesday and it will run for two weeks,” said pastor Devon Walker. “It’s been exciting we were able to raise all the funds for it and the whole idea was if we can’t raise the funds we are not going to do it.”

Church leaders vowed Dec. 1 to purchase a billboard message nearby the atheist billboard. The church announced Tuesday it had gathered the money needed for the message. The billboard is costing the church $900.

WHAT?! That billboard’s message is… is… um…

Okay, it’s perfectly fine and I see no problem with it.

Good for them for embracing people with doubts (at least in theory).

Even American Atheists seemed to like it:

[AA public relations director Danielle] Muscato said he welcomes the church’s billboard, saying he advocates people being able to think for themselves on whether to believe in any, or no, religion.

Well played, Christians.

Much better than what Eric Hart did.
