I can’t help feeling that this billboard is a double dig, not just at the teachings of the bible but at the apparent totalitarian regime in the sky.
American Atheists announced today that it is putting up its first “Year Of the Bible” billboard starting in Harrisburg, PA. Pennsylvania Nonbelievers has joined in the cost of this billboard. The first billboard will be in place on or about March 5th, 2012 on 13th and Paxton Street in Harrisburg, PA.
The first billboard, designed by the Pennsylvania State Director, Ernest Perce V, and the design team, Emily D., and Zachary B., that includes a picture of a slave in obedience to his master citing a new testament bible verse Colossians 3:22 “Slaves obey your masters” found in several versions of the bible
The message this billboard conveys is the House of Representatives should not be celebrating a barbaric and Bronze Age book. We do not in any way condone slavery, but the bible does. We have outgrown such hideous actions toward humanity.
