This is pretty nifty. I’m all for advertising the happiness that comes with godlessness. We can have sex the way we want. We don’t have to live with the constant reminder that we’re not good enough or spoiled by birth. There are no taboo curiosities for us, and no avenue to happiness that is forbidden.
Life without religion simply rules.
There is a video on the Living Happily Without Religion web site that looks almost like something Seth Andrews would make (which is a pretty high compliment).
Says Paul Fidalgo:
To carry this message, we’re putting up ads on billboards, buses, bus shelters, and Metro dioramas in New York City, Washington, Indianapolis, and Michigan – areas in which CFI has particularly strong, vibrant, and active local branches. We’re also launching the new LivingWithoutReligion.org, which features personal insights and testimonials from real people about how they live happy, meaningful, connected lives without religion. There’s also a great new campaign video, a handy Q-and-A section, and useful statistics about the state of nonbelief in the United States.
How many billboards do we see that say “Believe in Jesus or burn”? Countless. We can totally win the advertising war if we’re willing to try – all with just pointing out how much it kicks ass to be an atheist.
Also, sex sells. I really don’t know why we don’t spend more time pointing out how frustrating arbitrary and imposed sexual taboos can be.
