Idaho Atheists Clean Up Highway

Last week, the Idaho Atheists helped clean up a two-mile stretch of Boise:

There was lots of great conversation and we found some interesting things. Card by card we picked up almost a whole deck of cards, we also picked up a porn magazine almost page by page, a page from a hymnal, a church bulletin, a small baggy of unidentified pills, and a pack of 1 cc syringes (without the needle).

So the litterers include porn enthusiasts and Christians. I wonder how much overlap is in that bunch…

    Cleaning up after the christians, isn’t that what the Atheist do best? Good Work. Keep up the visibility. Thanks.

    I actually sort of do this for a living. My second job is picking up trash in a Walmart parking lot as part of my parents company’s parking lot maintenance contract with them (I also do several other places on the weekends but Walmart needs to be done every day).

    I like to imagine that all the garbage was left by one person and try to figure out what he was doing that day, I’d say this guy in Idaho had a pretty great day.

    Also, if you’re a parent, don’t throw dirty diapers out in parking lots. It’s the worst part about my job.

    You know, I’ve subscribed to your site in my Google Reader for a very long time now, and I would love to share some of your posts and info with all my friends on there, but a few of them are fairly religious.

    A nice story like this would be great to share, but then you add that last line, as though it’s somehow too difficult for you to share an uplifting story without adding in some zinger. It’s unnecessary, and so many of your posts would be better without it.
