Well, They’re the Ones Calling it Good Friday…

The Dallas/Fort Worth Coalition of Reason would like to wish everyone a Good Friday:

Indeed, without the death of Jesus as God, atonement within Christian theology would be impossible. So great is this event, that Christians around the world commemorate it as “Good Friday.”

On this point, we can hopefully find no small level of agreement.

It is my sincere hope that we can celebrate together during this season of death and rebirth; while you and your Christian brothers and sisters are able to find joy in the sacrifice of the figure of Christ Jesus, your Humanist siblings are likewise jubilant at the death of God, and we embrace the necessity of sacrifice from one for each other, in the interest of advancing a human-centered ethic that benefits us all.

A very Good Friday to you, and a very happy Easter to your friends and family.
