Upset by the ad campaign by the American Humanist Association, a Christian woman has decided to start her own campaign. Here’s her idea (via Friendly Atheist):
I am gobsmacked by the inanity of this sign. Where’s the hellfire? Brimstone? Why can’t I smell rotten eggs? Why is there no stench of burning flesh in the air? Why do I have the sudden urge to hand this god a box of Kleenex, some ice cream and a Titanic DVD?
To attribute the words on this sign to the Christian god is almost laughable when the bible tells the tale of a god best described by Richard Dawkins as:
“…the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully.”
This god whining about how we shouldn’t leave him all alone because he loves us? I think Yahweh would cut his own tongue out before he said something like this.
