In a direct rebuttal to the notion that God works in mysterious ways (which, when you think about it, means absolutely nothing at all), these billboards read, “GOOD works in non-mysterious ways.”
Janny Stratichuk, regional programs coordinator for the Humanists of the Palouse, stated, “The tongue-in-cheek statement is a take on the traditional and widely heard, ‘God works in mysterious ways.’ This religious phrase is often used as a last excuse when theism fails to provide clear results in the real world. While theism may offer hope and wishful thinking, human beings doing good makes a visible and tangible difference in our relationships, our communities, and our world.”
It’s a wonderful sentiment and one I’m sure super-sensitive Christians will find reason to object to within a day or two.
