The word ‘backslide’ has a very specific meaning. It doesn’t mean what they think it means.
Wikipedia sums it up:
This article is about the theological phenomenon. For the dance, see Moonwalk (dance).
Backsliding is a term used within Christianity to describe a process by which an individual who has converted to Christianity reverts to pre-conversion habits and/or lapses or falls into sin, when a person turns from God to pursue their own desire.
In other words, their sign says:
“Jesus – Causing atheists to become atheists for over 2000 years”
Also funny: did anyone else catch the hilarious Michael Jackson joke in the wiki article? I see what you did there, internet. No this is not photoshopped. This is in Jacksonville, North Carolina. Thanks Ruth! Good eye.
