This week’s comment comes from John Sunderman.
Amazing…so Santa Claus is not a myth?? And of course Athiests have to insult Christianity…can’t just believe in whatever it is they believe (which is pretty much nothing), Athiests have to impose their beliefs on everyone else in society–pathetic.
No, John. The billboard categorizes Santa and Jesus both as myths. The difference is that atheists can be consistent with our myths. No jolly fat man rides a flying sleigh pulled by floating reindeer. Similarly, no Canaanite dude rose from the dead and flew into the sky either. Believing in one is just as shameful as believing in the other.
And just how do we impose our beliefs on everyone else in society? Do we pass laws trying to restrict who Christians can marry? Do we march into churches insisting that Sunday schools teach evolution (or try to pass laws to that effect)?
