The San Diego Coalition of Reason has put up a billboard in that area that says “Atheism: A personal relationship with reality.” The local ABC station has an article about it entitled “Billboard aimed at recruiting atheists; Local pastor encourages debate.” It should read “Billboard aimed at recruiting atheists; Local pastor proves clueless.”
10News showed the billboard to Pastor Chris Clark of the East Clairemont Southern Baptist Church. He said he welcomed a healthy debate.
“I don’t know that they’re picking a fight necessarily. I think they’re trying to get their message out,” said Clark…Clark said he supports the group’s freedom of speech. He just wants to make sure there’s no pushback if his church wants a billboard recruiting believers.
“All I’m asking for is equal access. Don’t get upset when there’s a nativity scene on the public square,” said Clark.
Seriously? You don’t understand the difference between a nativity scene on public property and a billboard on private property? A 12 year old could figure out the distinction.
