LAKELAND, Fla. A group of atheists in Florida spent part of their weekend washing away a blessing placed upon a local highway by a religious group.
Armed with brooms, mops and "unholy water," the atheists gathered Saturday to symbolically clean up holy oil that Polk Under Prayer put down on Highway 98 near the Pasco-Polk county line last year, Bay News 9 reported.
"We come in peace," Humanists of Florida director Mark Palmer announced before he and members of other atheist organizations launched their cleanup.

The unblessing project, he explained, was "not about atheist rights" but about "welcoming everybody into Polk County."
Beware atheists you may start believing and don't touch each other!
Palmer is an ironic name considering that is what was laid down on the road for Jesus to travel on.
Is he going to scrub his name too?
“We come in peace”????
LOL!!! What are they, little green alien wannabes???
We come in PEACE??? Hahahahahahaaaaa
Bless it again, Sam.
Am I missing somthin here?
Furthermore, let them go try to "undo" what they spiritually are unable to "undo", as non-believers of the Spirit. For Matthew says, in addressing Christian believers (and not atheists) "what is bound in earth will be bound in heaven, and what is loosed on earth will be loosed in heaven." It is not so much of (as) the annoited "oil" itself (and its removal as a futile, almost humorious if not pathetic, desperate act), as it is in the indelible, irretractable prayers that went behind the application of the oil, and cannot be undone even if they sanblasted it down the nano level, certainly not by a band of moronic unbelievers who believe the the "sanctity (sic) of "nothingness". The binding still exists, the initial prayers still stand and are written in heaven, where no atheist's eraser can reach. Their blindness makes them completely unable to even grasp this fundamental point of both spiritual logic and established scripture.
Maybe they are trying to keep someone from skidding on the oil. I saw a horrible accident a few years ago when after a light rain a car with a pregnant woman skidded on the mixture of oil droplets on the road and rain, killing her and her unborn child.
So let me get this straight (I only have a public education): these Polk County Atheists are trying to undo something that they don’t believe could have happened in the first place - invoking God’s blessing. Don’t their actions mean they really think the original blessing had an effect?
What is the world coming to when you can’t even depend on an atheist to walk the talk???
They cannot call themselves "Humanists" because they lay claim to a word that also has origin in the Holy Land as well is in the Indus Valley through Hinduism ("manu" for man, and initially known in that RELIGION as ""Satyavrata""), created as "good" by "God."
Hey, but nice try atheists. Did they do a press release on this action? If so, did they use "2012" in it? "2012 what?" "A.D.", that's what. "Anno Domini", or "Year of the Lord" (or more fully in the Latin root Anno Domini Nostri Iesu (Jesu) Christi . Oops, cannot use that! Refers a few years here and there off, of the approximate birth of Jesus Christ, in Christianity, the Son of God. So what is their reference to time and to dating documents or events?
They would be better off naming their group the "Know Nothings" and not using any years in their press releases, or conscientiously object to carrying state issued driver's licenses which refer to their own birth's referenced by the Year of the Lord. They are hypocrites for carrying such non-secular aspect documentation upon themselves.
A road isn’t blessed to keep people out. Its blessed for the safety of travelers. If someone wishes to be an atheist thats their choice. To seek to undo a persons good intentions however only demonstrates ignorance for lack of a better word.
So help me out here— the atheists /humanists claimed “we come in peace.” They also claim that they do not believe in God.And it seems logical that if they do not believe in God then the actions of the Christians who annointed the road were without meaning to the atheists .And if true then the actions of the atheists and humanists were decidedly hostile —and blasphemous—and prove the LIE they tell about coming in Peace and about welcoming everybody.I thank God hey are so transparent.
Lets all pray for these misguided souls.
I think some are missing the point here. If one reasons that the actions by the atheists are nonsensical or even silly, then one might also reason that the actions of the Priest are also nonsensical and silly. One symbollic act infers another, neither of which evidences any observable change to reality. This is how they pull some people in from the fence. That is how they grow stronger socially and hence politically. Keep changing the terms of the argument. Approach it from different angles, and you peel off some more. It’s a common activist method. You take control of the intellectual argument and so long as you are determined, patient and persistent, in time you will win.
let them have their fun.
Where have you been
if you watch the science and history channels...
they do not use Anno Domini or Before Christ, anymore.
the new terms used in schools and science are
B.C.E. Before the common era.
A.C.E. After the common era.
How Common of them!
My dad was an atheist. My dearest friend is high standing admin in the James Randi foundation. I am friends with many many atheist just from knowing her and everyone I know would laugh hysterically at this garbage.
Most of them would warn of the stupidity of creating their very own dogma.
Atheist isn’t a negative form of religion. It’s an absence of one. These goons just became Satanists (not the worshiping Satan kind, but Levey’s version) of just being anti-Christianity.
Besides, I’d bet a million dollars they wouldn’t try some crap with the Muslims. They fear THOSE religious zealots.
Any oil that the Christians applied to the road would be miniscule compared to the oil that drips from cars and trucks that travel that road every day.
Blessings come from God, not oil. Blessings are rescinded by God, not foolish self-righteous academics with their "unholy water".
