David Silverman, President of American Atheists stated, “We know that a large population of ‘Christians’ are actually atheists who feel trapped in their family’s religion. If you know god is a myth, you do not have to lie and call yourself ‘Christian’ in order to have a festive holiday season. You can be merry without the myth, and indeed, you should.”In response, the author writes:
Truly, this is a sniveling cowardice “campaign” they’ve got going and it’s hidden behind false concern for poor suffering closet atheists living in fear of retribution from their Christian families. I think they’re confused. They have Christianity mistaken for something else.
Where is their sense of concern for large populations of Muslims “who feel trapped”? . . .
And if you want to get down to technicalities, your billboard is false. . . .
The word “myth” should actually be under the Thomas Nast version of Santa Claus. . . .
Get your own damn holiday. Just make something up. I hear your pretty good at that.
