Christian Pastor: I Respect Your Atheist Billboard, So Respect My Nativity Scene on Government Property

The San Diego Coalition of Reason just put up their last billboard and, based on your comments, you all love it:

A local news channel has already reported on the message:

At one point, the reporter interviews Pastor Chris Clark of the East Clairemont Southern Baptist Church and he seems like a completely respectable person:

Pastor Chris Clark

“I don’t know that they’re picking a fight necessarily. I think they’re trying to get their message out,” said Clark.

Clark said he supports the group’s freedom of speech. He just wants to make sure there’s no pushback if his church wants a billboard recruiting believers.

That’s awesome!

No, there would be no pushback at all if Clark wanted a church billboard. It’s good to see a Pastor who really gets it!

Unfortunately, Clark kept talking…

Clark said he supports the group’s freedom of speech. He just wants to make sure there’s no pushback if his church wants a billboard recruiting believers.

“All I’m asking for is equal access. Don’t get upset when there’s a nativity scene on the public square,” said Clark.

Say what now?

Atheists pay for a billboard… So the pastor thinks it’s only fair that he get to impose his religion on everyone else with the government’s help.

No.

Absolutely not.

That’s not equal access. That’s over-access

He can pay for a billboard just like everyone else.

The moment he puts that Nativity Scene on government property, you can bet an atheist group will set up a Flying Spaghetti Monster version of The Last Supper right next to it.
