Sign on the Boston Common Reads, “May the Light of Reason Brighten Your Season!” December 24, 2018

Sign on the Boston Common Reads, “May the Light of Reason Brighten Your Season!”

The Boston Atheists just unveiled this lovely (uncontroversial) banner on the Boston Common. It says, “May the Light of Reason Brighten Your Season!” And then in smaller print underneath, “Happy Holidays from your friendly neighborhood @bostonatheists.”

Boston Atheists board member Zachary Bos said in a statement that 2018 has been a “brutal year.” He said that helped prompt the decision to place what he called “an uplifting message, a message of good will from nonbelievers, addressed to any person who reads it — nonbelievers and believers alike.”

The group says they’re not offended by Nativity scenes or Christmas trees, but want the chance to get their message out too.

Will anyone complain? I have no doubt someone will condemn it for celebrating the “season” without mentioning Jesus, but for the non-grinches, this should be a pleasant addition to the holiday scene.
