Guess what this is?
Well, a couple days ago, it used to be this:
That’s beyond vandalism.
I suppose we should be happy that another Sacramento billboard only had to deal with “Christ Loves U” graffiti:
That makes three billboards in Sacramento vandalized in the past couple weeks.
Instead of getting both billboards replaced, the Sacramento Area Coalition of Reason is asking that two of the other billboards in the area stay up an additional week:
“This isn’t Clear Channel’s fault, nor is it ours. The fault rests entirely with the vandals,” said Fred Edwords, national director of United CoR. “So our goal is to ensure that this mischief has as little negative impact as possible on both our campaign and on the billboard company that has so ably served us.”
Mike Krebsbach, a press representative for Sacramento CoR, added, “Our billboard message reaches out to those who know that people can be good without belief in a supreme being. It doesn’t say that believing in a god makes one bad. So why would the vandals act as if the belief actually had that effect? It’s a sad day when we have to witness such cavalier disregard of property and free speech rights. Wouldn’t it have been better if those who disagreed with us had sought to open a dialogue, instead?”
I don’t get the mindset of the people who are doing this. If their intention was to thwart the message, they’re only allowing it to get more publicity.
More power to the atheists for handling this so well. They come out of this mess looking great.
