Bible Sign Removed From Public Park. Hilarity Ensues.

The Michigan Association of Civil Rights Activists has succeeded in getting a sign removed from a public park not far from where I live. The sign quoted Psalm 19:1, “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handiwork.” Cue the outrage in the comment section of the local paper:

the sign should stay with the additional comment, activist and freeloaders stay out!!…

please join the coalition to ban activist.. especially mentality challenged ones like these…

Chalk up a victory for the side of darkness……

Any time you see “civil rights” its an acronym for downgrading society and lawyers profiting. In example Michael Brown = Ghetto! This is an example of why the ACLU is a bunch of vermin…

Why, exactly, are Americans giving in to this nonsense? Our country was built on religious freedom. If something Christian doesn’t appeal to some people, why aren’t we simply declaring that they then have the right to ignore it – but not the right to infringe on our rights, too? Things have become idiotic. I think it’s time to stop playing goofy games, ruining our nation with the political correct nonsense. Where are your backbones, people? Allowing a loud-mouth minority to dictate what is and isn’t allowed is asinine.

I especially love the argument that putting a sign on public property is a matter of religious freedom. Great, then you should strongly support the putting up of signs on public property by Muslims, atheists, Satanists, Hindus and other religious groups, right? Oh yeah, you freak out when that happens. As usual, “religious freedom” really means “Christian privilege.”

    Again “religious freedom” means “freedom to impose my religion on everyone else.” They don’t understand that rights have limits; the concept of “your right to swing your fist ends at the tip of my nose.”

    In the parlance of the day how meta. Activists against Activists

    We should have legal prostitution on the streets. If you don’t agree with it, just ignore it! Pornography on broadcast TV. If you don’t like it, just ignore it! Casinos everywhere! If you don’t like gambling, just ignore it!

    I don’t think they quite understand how an acronym works.

  • nemistenem

    DaveL, you seem surprised with this. They don’t understand the concept of religious freedom, either. Bet that’s just the tip of the iceburg.

    “Allowing a loud-mouth minority to dictate what is and isn’t allowed is asinine.” Ya think? This asshole catches on quick. Or not.

    Or plurals:

    There are some good comments though, cheesebandit proposed this biblical passage instead:

    “No one whose testicles have been crushed or whose penis has been cut off may be admitted into the community of the Lord.” (Deuteronomy 23:2 NAB)

    I think that there is an inexhaustible list of things that people like this don’t understand.

    The Constitution and the bible (itself) being among them.

    Allowing a loud-mouth minority to dictate what is and isn’t allowed is asinine.

    Unless they are wearing powdered wigs with teabags hanging off them. Oh, and are white.

    1@ While agreeing with your general point that “rights have limits,” the way you chose to specifically illustrate it is pretty stupid (having a bible verse in a public park in nowhere near equivalent to being punched in the nose).

  • kenn

    It’d be nice if those people would actually read that pocket-sized Constitution they keep waving around.

  • eric

    Allowing a loud-mouth minority to dictate what is and isn’t allowed is asinine.

    …and allowing a paltry piece of paper to dictate what the majority is and isn’t allowed to do is even worse! Eleventy111!!!

    Isn’t that an atheist sign? Since the firmament doesn’t exist, that leads pretty directly to a conclusion about its supposed creator.
