This Needs a Caption…

When Catholics were rallying for “religious freedom” on Friday, members of the Freedom From Religion Foundation were counter-protesting right alongside them in Madison, Wisconsin:

That last one seems worthy of a caption… What is the yellow-shirt-wearing “liberal media” guy telling FFRF co-president Dan Barker?

      Is that before or after the money collection box?

      • http://thatsajennstory.com/ Jennwith2ns

         I’d say “touche,” except that in my experiences of churches handing out free water bottles (to all and sundry, not just members), they were actually free. Never saw the box . . .

          You just have to listen to them explain that Jesus is the water of life before they’ll give you the actual water.

    “Why did FFRF make signs that say the same thing twice in small hard to read letters rather than saying it once in bigger letters? I had to get this close just to read it. My print shop is right over there..let me fix that for you.”

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Chris-Leithiser/593361421 Chris Leithiser

      They’re not signs, they’re repurposed bumper stickers.  But, yeah.

  • Gus Snarp

    I have no caption, but I just don’t understand the anger that makes you get up that close to somebody’s face (third picture), and it scares me.

    • Coyotenose

       IS he angry and invading Barker’s personal space because he’s angry, though? It’s bright out and there’s a crowd. He might be squinting from the sunlight and getting close enough that they can actually hear one another.

      But yeah, he’s probably having a rage fit because logic is hard. Just his stupid hat button suggests such.

    What the Christians told ME when I attended a similar rally was that if my mother had used birth control it would make ME oppose it the way they did.  Or something like that.

    I was the only atheist “out” there at the rally in the Bible belt of California.

    Pointer:”Leo and I used to wash our cars just over there. It was a 427, you know. Green.  He and Margey would take it to the crick on days like this. ”
    Sign guy:”Who are you? Who is Leo? What?”
