I know this is shocking to you all.
FOXNews is rolling its eyes at the American atheist bus campaign:
Steve Doocy, Brian Kilmeade and Alisyn Camerota don’t understand the need for the bus campaign.
They say atheists just “need a hug.”
They say atheists are doing this because “misery loves company.”
They say we’re feeling “left out of Christmas” because we chose to.
Steve Doocy is really confused. After all, he “doesn’t feel left out during Ramadan.”
He also makes another idiotic comment about how the buses are supported by tax dollars and how uncomfortable this might make viewers. He says this right after they had mentioned how much the American Humanist Association is paying for the advertising. Apparently, he doesn’t understand how advertising works.
They don’t get the irony that their reaction to this story is precisely why the campaign is needed.
And once again, a program (I would say “news” program, but this is FOX) is discussing atheism without inviting an atheist on the program to offer a different perspective.
I really hope this bus campaign draws more attention…
