Frank, Frank, Frank… you were doing so well.
Then you pissed all over Free Speech.
Fuck you, Frank.
In case you can’t read it, here is an interesting response to the billboard entry:
“WHAT THE FUCK! I’m so angry & completely considering my religion after reading these & looking up in the bible if it was true, and it is! This is terrible, this is not right, this isn’t how humans should be brainwashed to act, I can’t believe this, I’m so angry.”
I’ve been asked often: why bother? Honestly… one good answer is to inform other atheists, often those in hiding (or in the closet) that they are not alone and others out there think the same way they do.
Okay, now we have ourselves a ball game (cracks knuckles).
Someone made a detailed response to the billboard post I put up a few days ago and since the person made quite an effort (thank you) I will do the same out of respect for this person and their seemingly decent knowledge of the scripture. Should we be surprised that this kind of bold response came from a fellow English major? Not in the slightest.
So with that said, her words are in bold and my response is posted underneath. So.. let’s get started:
That’s the response many atheists get when we point out a very offensive part of the bible; you’re taking it out of context. What context is there that makes smashing a child’s head against a rock better? There is no context that would make that line any better. Killing children is wrong… even if God asks you to do it.
This is an interesting twist on the billboard post but I don’t think this Christian is getting the point. The point of the billboards is not to cherry pick but to expose Christians as the real cherry pickers. They do not hesitate to condemn homosexuality because their bible tells them so but the exact same book (Leviticus) also outlaws pork, shell fish, tattoos, gossiping and hundreds of other things this young lady and the majority of Christians choose to ignore.
