WTF!?!? Atheist Group Buys Ad Space On Texas Buses

- By Bossip Staff

Here’s the thing, we’re all for people freely practicing whatever religion they choose. But doesn’t seem like Atheist like to really throw their beliefs at you?? This sh*t right here is taking it a liiiiiitle too far.

Starting today, the sides of four Fort Worth city buses will bear this message: “Millions of Americans are Good Without God.”

Their sponsor, the Dallas-Fort Worth Coalition of Reason, says it’s only coincidence that the atheist-themed ads will debut during Christmas season. They are not exactly apologizing.

“We’ve been trying to put these ads together for awhile and we didn’t plan for them to come out now,” said Terry McDonald of the Coalition of Reason. “But I’m not unhappy it’s running during Christmas. Why do Christians own December? There were people that said this may cause a problem. That doesn’t bother me.”

These mickiefickies think they slick. Say word your ads just go up in December?? GTFOH, we’re sure Bill Maher is proud of you guys but c’mon son…

And to that end I present, exhibit B, a $20,000 billboard that is placed on I-495 from New Jersey to the Lincoln Tunnel

The message — “You know it’s a myth. This season, celebrate reason!” — is emblazoned in large white letters above the nativity scene.

David Silverman, the president of American Atheists and the man behind the billboard, said it would remain in place at least until the winter solstice on Dec. 21 and possibly through Christmas. He said the billboard was partly inspired by one that American Atheists’ founder, Madalyn Murray O’Hair, set up in Dallas in the 1970s proclaiming “Atheism: It’s not what you believe.”

Not really sure how many people are going to feel about riding a bus or strip of highway knowing that they could be struck by lightning but hey…Have the Atheist groups in America gone too far? Peep the billboard below

    I argue for Atheism or Agnosticism when the topic comes up, but I can’t see going to all the trouble of taking out ads. I don’t care that much that other people are superstitious, as long as they aren’t bothering me.

      Freedom of Speech. Why is this wrong? America is full of shit.They act like we were founded on christain beliefs!!Christianity (in my opinion) is paganism revised.

  • gabiedenise

    I say let people not believe in God. God believes in all of us, regardless. I respect all beliefs while staying true to my own. God bless them! They have the right of free will! I would still ride the bus and I would still drive that highway! A lot of Christians need to learn when to fight and when to pray. Some battles aren’t meant for us…so just pray! This world is filled with all types of people with all types of beliefs, but we still live in it anyway. Mercy and Grace…Mercy and Grace

      Your grammar is so atrocious I won’t even bother reading whatever rubbish you typed.

    Everybody knows that Christians throw their beliefs around like STDs. How many have seen a Jesus Saves sign lately?

    • LaDiva

      Ummm actually atheists love to throw things in our faces. Do u see anyone pledging the allegiance to the flag in school and u can forget about any type of prayer in school as well, or stores saying/having signs that say ‘merry christmas’…. Lol seems their actions are doing all the talking ehhh…

  • EchoReality

    And relax with the CAPS LOCK lol. Isn’t it funny that the religious are always the crazies, but the atheists always get the bad rap?

    • G.M.

      ikr…if atheist are seen as bad for not believing in Jesus does that mean christians view Buddist or other religions that worship a god/higher power in a negative light, cuz technically they dont believe in Jesus either…becuz Jesus certainly isn’t all those different gods being worshipped in different religions

  • GIFT

    we are truly in the last days people. I don’t agree with the message at all, but in the same token, we see things alot more offensive and in your face on tv, internet, magazines, and all other forms of media on a daily basis. Glad I don’t live in Ft Worth, or have to ride the bus. Thank the LORD!!!!

  • HARDMIKE

    Jesus Christ historically never existed. Jesus Caesarius was the half breed son of Cleopatra and Julius Caesar was exiled to India by Octavius, when this Jesus went to India he studied buddha and pagan religions. Jesus Caesarius claimed that he would reclaim his father’s kingdom and since Julius Caesar made his self a god Jesus Caesarius was known as the son of God or God’s Son. The new religion he brought with him mixed a lot of different practices into one and with this religion he recaptured his fathers empire and the Roman Empire became the Holy Roman Empire.

    the illiterate translation by ancient medieval europeans is why there is so much myth mixed with legend, in reality christianity is a mixture of pagan sun worship and the mixture of indian and middle eastern religion especially buddhism which is why all these religion are basically the same story with a different cast

    his it never dawn to you why absolutely no historian in the history of the world has ever written about Jesus Christ? i mean not one and there were alot of historians in this period of time when Jesus lived. you would think a white man traveling with 12 people preforming miracles with been told during the time that he lived, not so many years later

    • LaDiva

      So you believe that everything has been documented in history…?? Lol I’m sure there is plenty of things that have been omitted…

    • Jus Some Cat

      Even atheist theology scholared historians do not question the existence of the historical Jesus, they just, as expected, do not believe in his deity.

      Josephus a well known “unbelieving” Roman historian documented his life,his trial with Pilate and crucifixion. Along with the lives of Pilate, John the Baptist and Herod. Not believing is fine and every man/woman’s right. In context Jesus was a leader of a small, new, religious sect over a very short period of time. So why would many historians write about his existence during his life. His infamy didn’t become paramount until AFTER his death. IMHO like the group who’s putting out these signs your just spittin hater BS.

    • HARDMIKE

      i said jesus christ.. i didnt say jesus never existed

    • Psunny

      there is architectural evidence that Jesus of Nazareth existed.

    • HARDMIKE

      no there is not. Jesus Christ or more exactly the Christ depicted in the bible never ever existed. one of the tenets of your christian faith is faith, that is believing in what you cant see, so of course you are going to be in denial, The historical Jesus that existed was Jesus Caesarius the son of Julius Caesar, and this is the man that all the myths of Jesus Christ was attributed to, which in reality is sun worship, of course you aint gon believe it, you have been told your whole life what to believe and if the people telling not to believe than your “blind faith” allows them to achieve the goal that they set out to finish

      i mean the very fact that u believe that if you dont believe in a certain means that you are going to place where another imaginary man will punish you

  • LaDiva

    Sweety the fact that you can’t even mention God in school or pretty much anywhere without being persecuted speaks volumes. Look up Madalyn Murray O’Hair. The fact that they also want to remove the 10 commandments out as well also speaks volumes.

    Deuces

  • Kris

    Ugh people are so ignorant.

  • MissPerfect.a.k.a allergic to coonery

    Just because they dont believe in God doesnt mean they have less of a right ..freedom of speech is for everyone ..No one is more vicious then Jehovah Witnesses they some gangbuster knocking at your door like they got no sense !

  • Amazin Atheist

    It’s time for atheist to speak their mind! Now the religious feel that they are persecuted but they have a church on just about every corner or some kinda jesus paraphernalia somewhere! I’m from Texas and there is some crappy sign about jesus just about everywhere you look! Just face it folks America does not belong to the christians, they get all butt hurt when someone criticize their believe but they have no problem criticizing everyone else belief or non belief for that matter! Belief is a personal thing, keep it to yourself! It don’t belong in schools or in the government!

    • LaDiva

      Lol oh but I guess it’s acceptable for only atheists to do the criticizing. They are the only ones that can stand up for their beliefs then… Lol

  • Loves the Lord

    Every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess!

    • XXXO8OXXX

      That you and your kind are idiots?!?! Ok, I’m on my knees and I am confessing. YOU ARE A FOOL.

    • Lawd da Mercy

      I’m with you @Loves

      Be not wise in your own eyes, people.
      How can you believe in nothing?
      And if you do,
      why knock someone else who believes in a higher power.

  • Amazin Atheist

    Lol point is that it is all open to criticism! Bottom line! Now I get approached by christians all the time, I politely tell them that I don’t believe and they get rude and that’s when I get rude! If they would have just kept it to themselves there would not have been any conflict! I honestly don’t care what they believe in! But they need to keep it out of schools and government! All it is is a belief, that don’t make it true!

    • LaDiva

      Lol funny u say that about belief considering atheism is also a belief, and we both know that that doesn’t make it true either…Lol
      But as a christian person I will say that regardless of what u believe, I do not wish u any ill will. God bless u even if u will not accept it.

    • MrColdheart

      The person who replied to you said atheism is a belief.
      That’s actually not true.

      Atheism is a disbelief in someone else claim of god.

      If you believe in aliens and I don’t then I don’t hold a belief.

  • b*d m*thaf*cka

    Funny how christians can force their religious (cult of sorts) ideals all up in everybody’s face, but then have a cow if some1 doesn’t feel the need for “their god”. And forget about ever voicing that opinion, cause then you’re all kinds of demons & evil. Meanwhile they want to dominate the conversation with their hypocritical indoctrination. GTFOOH!! That’s why they got jim joneses, david koreshes, eddie longs, and bunch more crazies & nasties & twisted freaks. Keep your god to yourself and let the rest of us who don’t need that crap be! Don’t like it when the shoe is on the other foot huh??

    • G.M.

      COSIGN…CHRISTIANITY IS FILLED WITH CONTRADICTION LIKE: BE GOD FEARING BUT GOD DIDN’T GIVE U THE SPIRIT OF FEAR, AND IF GOD WAS SO ALMIGHTY WHY LET PPL WHIP, STONE, TORTURE AND CRUCIFY U…WHY NOT B1TCH SLAP THEY A$$ TO HE11 AND STAB EM WITH LIGHTINING BOLTS OR IF HE WAS ABLLE TO WALK ON WATER WHY DIDN’T HE RUN HIS A$$ ACROSS THE ATLANTIC OCEAN TO SAFETY, THATS WHAT I WOULD OF DID IF I WAS ALMIGHTY, NOT CRAWL AROUND GETTING MY A$$ WHOOPED…AND I KNOW CHRISTIANS WILL BE LIKE “JESUS DIED FOR OUR SINS” BUT GUESS WHAT Y’ALL CHRISTIANS IS STILL SINNING SO DOESN’T THAT MEAN HE DIED FOR NOTHING AND MY FINAL THOUGHTS ABOUT THIS IS CHRISTIANS BELIEVE THAT WE OUR ALL BORN IN SIN SO DOES THAT MEAN BABIES THAT DIE AFTER THERE BORN MEAN ALL BABIES GOTO HE11 SINCE NONE OF THEM COULD OF POSSIBLY HAVE REPENTED FOR THE SINS THEY WERE BORN INTO…BUT ITS WHATEVER, I DIGRESS

  • afrodite

    I stopped reading after the first sentence. religious people cannot be serious when they accuse atheists of “throw[ing] their beliefs at you.” People cannot be that unaware of the things they do. That’s called projection. I’ve never once been accosted by an atheist, but religious people threaten me all the time.

    • Rock W/ Me

      What you said! I really hate to think that Christians are unaware of their own actions. But maybe because it’s the predominant religion here, they don’t realize just how much it is thrown at everyone… but as soon as another religion does something, they wanna feel that they are “under attack”…just crazy.

  • ManchesterUKer

    The Atheist Bus campaign has been in Europe for a long time. It started in the UK with the ads on all the buses saying ‘there’s probably no God so stop worrying and get on with your life’. If churches can have adverts on buses by can’t anyone else?

  • Amazin Atheist

    No thanks on the god bless! And theis= a belief in god atheism= a lack of belief! I heard it all from christians! I’ve been called evil, the devil, I was told I was gonna burn just because I don’t believe! I have never done anything wrong to anybody! Does god have such a jacked up ego that I would burn just because I don’t acknowledge him/her/it even though I do right just because I choose to? That sound like something that is man made to me! Look at the at the prison population, atheist make up less than 1% of the prison population, and you guessed it right, christians are the majority!
