You know how when you see those Christian-themed bumper stickers, you cry a single tear, shake your head, and continue to drive?

Blair Scott’s atheist-themed bumper sticker led to a different reaction. He got a note attached to his windshield.

You’re going to hell and you’re going to burn in a lake of fire.

Another example of that Christian love I hear so much about…?

    I’m curious exactly which sticker he had. I am glad to say that it has been one year since I added the evolve emblem to my car and not one negative comment. I’m also a pretty courteous driver so that helps from seeing the bird.

    Dude, you live in Austin. There are a lot weirder bumper stickers there than an “evolve” emblem. I’ll bet no one even notices yours. :)

    Mike, kind of. I actually live in Round Rock….Williamson county. There is a big line at the Travis/Williamson county marker. There hasn’t been a democrat elected in more than a decade and all single slot running officials for a seat are Republicans. I realize in Austin that it’s no big deal but to be honest, I have never seen another evolve/darwin emblem or sticker on a regular basis around here. I see about 5% of the cars with some type of fish or cross regularly. I do remember stopping at a light at Parmer and 620 and I could read the lady behind me lips. She said “evolve?” and the other girl just had a puzzled look like they had no idea what it was. Either way I’m glad it’s no big deal and that I haven’t been bothered about it.
