The signs were meant to promote an upcoming campaign in which the atheists will push for the adoption of the secular national motto “E Pluribus Unum” (out of many, one) rather than the current religious one, “In God We Trust.”
But within a day of those signs going up, someone has already destroyed a couple of them, posted a picture of his work online, while proudly bragging about how “In God We Trust” is on our money. (As if that proves anything.)
The post has since been deleted, but not before the Metroplex Atheists got screenshots.
The person who took credit for the destruction has since posted this message on Facebook: “Enough about the dumb signs. God or no god, just love one another”… So he doesn’t care about the signs and preaches a message of kindness! Also, if you put up some words he doesn’t like, he’s going to destroy the signs (and brag about it).
There’s modern day Christianity for you.
The atheist group tells me the police have been notified, though a report has not yet been filed. The mayor of Forth Worth, Betsy Price, who was “appalled” by the original banners hasn’t said a thing yet about the vandalism.
As for the banner campaign, the atheists had made four extra signs… and all of them have now been used to replaced ones that were destroyed. (At least six signs, I’m told, have been vandalized.)
A spokesperson for the group added, “Streetlights will start becoming bare at this point.”
The question now is how the city will respond. The fear is that they will just look the other way even after a Christian openly admitted to causing the damage.
