Skip to comments.ATHEIST GROUP SUES TELEPHONE POLE “LOOKS LIKE A CROSS,” SAY SOME

The secular advocacy group North American Atheists has filed suit against a telephone pole on the grounds that it violates the separation of church and state. NAA President David Goldman says, It looks a Christian cross and its on government property. Case closed.
When asked why the atheist group decided to sue the pole itself rather than the telephone company or the state, he replied, Grrrr! It will pay!
Some see the pole, pictured, as a violation of the separation of church state, others see it as a means to get electricity to their homes Utility or theocracy?
The pole has sparked controversy among area residents. Some see it as a clear violation of the separation of church and state. Others see it as a means to get phone wires to their houses. It sort of looks like a cross, says Jay Banworth. And this country was not founded on Christian principles. Its got to go.
Its just a telephone pole, says Banworths wife Marge. I dont think Jay understands that thats where the wires come in.
The NAA rose to national prominence last year when it sued a shrub, for accidentally catching fire on government property. That was a clear allusion to the burning bush in the Book of Exoduson government property, says Goldman. That bush is gone now.
The suit was withdrawn as the bush quickly burned to the ground.
I'm surprised the atheists didn't think to sue the NY Mets and MLB years ago, the old Shea Stadium looked a lot like an islimeic crescent from the air:
Oh, wait, the atheists don't have the b*lls to mess with the mooslims, never mind.
Most road intersections are cross-shaped. Man, have they got a lot of lawsuits to file!
Please tell me this is satire.
are they serious?
well theyre serious enough to be launching a TV channel....
big fun wiil be had by all......no doubt
How’d that lawsuit come out against the cereal company that put a flake in a box that looked like the Virgin Mary?
Atheists sue to have the letters T and X as well as the CH pair removed from the alphabet.
Also in the article: “The NAA rose to national prominence last year when it sued a shrub, for accidentally catching fire on government property. ‘That was a clear allusion to the burning bush in the Book of Exoduson government property,’ says Goldman. ‘That bush is gone now.’”
I think you have your answer.
The sign of good satire is just how absurd but believable it is. . .
Sadly I have read articles that I thought were satire and then they turned out to be true. One never knows with these lunatics that are running this country.
Next, the letter t
Well, lemme see now - - - ?
We, the People live in a Constitutional Republic, which protects minority opinions.
The Liberals among us live in a Democracy, where the majority rules: Winner take ALL!, with no protection of minority opinions.
Hmmmmmm - - - -?
Why then are the Liberals among us soooooo concerned about the opinions of minorities?
If Liberals win they take absolute control and ram through anything they want such as the majority opposed Obamacare.
If Liberals are opposed, then they suddenly want to champion the hurt feeling of the minority groups that they are trying to buy votes from!
BTW, if Cross-Shaped telephone poles could vote, do you really think that the feelings of the un-cross telephone poles would be actually discussed in the campaign speeches of the pro- Cross Shaped Telephone Candidates?
PC fuss budgets, WORLD WIDE want to know!
Indeed. . .sad, isn’t it.
Hmmmm - - - ?
Maybe, or perhaps, “Liberal Love Seats?”
After all, “Two is cool, but Four is more!”
It’s not that atheists oppose “religion”,
they oppose Christianity.
THAT’s the real reason they don’t go after Islam.
OM NOM NOM NOM
I’m going to go with “obvious satire” here...
Oh Oh ,those stars in the sky better spread out
The real reason they don’t go after Islam is:
They are cowards.
Every time you see an atheist, hold your arms straight out from your sides and grin. They can’t do anything about that cross.
We’ll just replace all telephone polls with “A” shaped structures, for “Atheist”....
The wire eating tree monster strikes again.
1. Have this person stand up with his arms outstretched. 2. Take a photograph of him from the front and back.
3. Photoshop it to remove his identity.
4. Show him the photo of this “cross.”
5. Ask him if the object looks like a cross.
6. When he says yes, show him it is a photo of himself.
7. Demand that he sue himself for being a cross and thus a symbol of Christianity.
8. Make mention that in lieu of suing himself, he could have a surgical proceedure that would make him incapable of replicating the “cross” he so dreads.
Libs sre such insufferable idiots.
Naturally, they were residential lines.
I always wondered what angst they must feel at a sand-maggot telephone company when they have to design telephone poles.
Those are power poles which carry electrical lines. The telephone line is the lowest line on the poles, below cable TV.
I don’t worship AT&T, and if I saw a man nailed to one, I’d be praying for different reasons.
Sharia at the Bat?
The telephone co. Has’t owned poles for decades! That’s a power pole. Note the pilot wire relay. Some people...
Atheists should be sued for looking like idiots.
