Atheist Billboards Up in North Texas

At least the billboards are being put up in a place that really needs them, what with the Christianists trying to force their ridiculous ideas into the science curriculum in that state.

The billboards, much like the bus ads, are not there to convert passers-by. Rather, the hope is to reach the atheists who think they’re alone.

“We’re not trying to attract people who believe in God. We’re not trying to change their minds,” said Terry McDonald with Metroplex Atheists.

“It’s to let those people who don’t believe know that they’re not alone and that there are a lot of groups that they can become involved in,” said McDonald.

The billboards will stand along I-35 near Loop 12 in Northwest Dallas and I-35 at Braswell in North Fort Worth.

Good luck to them. Let’s hope more of these popular billboards are put up elsewhere.

Now, go congratulate Ensign Rose for posting about this before me :)
