Anti-God Ads Hit Dallas
by Christine Dao*
In the heart of the Bible belt, billboards stating Dont believe in God? You are not alone have been posted in parts of Dallas, home of the Institute for Creation Research.
The boards are sponsored by the Dallas-Fort Worth Coalition of Reason (DFWCoR), an atheist nonprofit group which joins together smaller local anti-theistic organizations to increase the growth, visibility and acceptance of nontheists throughout the Metroplex. Two ads have been posted in the D/FW area, one just a few miles from ICR headquarters, and will remain up through April.
According to Fred Edwords of the United Coalition of Reason, a co-sponsor of the ads, the primary goal of billboards like these is to let nontheistic peoplesuch as atheists, agnostics, freethinkers and humanistsknow they arent alone....

God doesn’t believe in atheists.
United Coalition of Reason?
How is it logical to foist your disbelief onto others.
Methinks them billboards are going to be instant God-Zot targets.
Well, it could be taken another way too that if you don’t believe in God, you are not alone because He is always there.
Turn their own words against them.
Their little heads will explode.
Or some kid who has nothing better to do (or adult) could just go paint an exclamation mark over the question mark.
Don’t believe in God?
Better hope He doesn’t quit believing in you. ;)
You heard’em...it makes them feel like they’re not alone!
Thanks for the ping!
Bring that sh*t over here to Fort Worth and see how well it plays.
Whoever places the ads assuredly does not have an adequate replacement...as nothing on this less than a grain of sand planet qualifies for the job.
I never thought of it that way. And you’re right, it probably would make their little heads explode. Kind of makes them seem a bit crazy, doesn’t it!
I am sure there is something in the Constitution that limits free speech in home of the Institute for Creation Research.
Sounds like Soros-funded trash.
LOL...I liked it better when you didn’t mess with ALL of Texas. But you gotta start taking your state back somewhere!
The most terrible poverty is loneliness, and the feeling of being unloved. ... Mother Teresa
You don’t have to believe in God to see the threat of the godless Left. Have no doubt, they are in ascension in America, leading us down the road to universal gay marriage, illegal amnesty, cultural sterilization (Google “Brown Univ. Columbus Day”), and threatening the very fabric of our nation in ways we can not now even conceive. But what scares me the most is this sense of resignation that seems to be afoot in America, that the Obama Agenda is just going to wash through us, and there is nothing to do about it. Meanwhile the Left is fighting like hell on every front to drive a stake through the heart of the Silent Majority. When will we fight?
Soros? Trash? But now you’re being redundant.
Strong winds have been known to destroy billboards.
Delicious irony to hear an atheist reminding us that “You are not alone.”
Hey, guys, we know that — it’s the whole point of Christianity!
//Better hope He doesnt quit believing in you//
==When will we fight?
You should talk to TQC about that, he’s got a plan! No kidding!
“According to Fred Edwords of the United Coalition of Reason, a co-sponsor of the ads, the primary goal of billboards like these is to let nontheistic peoplesuch as atheists, agnostics, freethinkers and humanistsknow they arent alone....”
Alone? As much as God has been driven out of public life by these people...does this moron think that they think that they’re alone? Good Lord almighty they’ve had 30 plus years of court cases to keep them company.
Man I love the Bible on the Web! Thanks for those choice verses :o)
Yep, how dare such people speak out against billboards from oddly proseylytizing atheists. Don't they know free speech is a one way street? What nerve, those rubes!
They may not want to be alone now, but they will be later.
I remember as a kid, there were a couple of stoners that use to come around bragging that when they got to hell they would be sitting in their rockin' chairs toking up one bong after another. Somehow people believe that there will be some sort of "enjoyment" for the soul in hell.
It’s not just the Bible on the web — it’s in my head since childhood.
First time I saw that billboard, I wondered if whoever designed it missed the double meaning. Or maybe the atheists have a saboteur in their midst.
Maybe we should thank them publicly for making our point.

I don’t think they realize how bad it would suck (no pun intended) to have that bong stuck to their mouth for eternity!

That’s what Satan keeps telling them. It’s the rare self-confessed atheist who really doesn’t believe in God. Most I’ve encountered believe in Him, they just don’t like Him. I think anti-theist better describes them.

I think you might have just hit upon the slogan for the billboard across the street :o)
Question for atheists: “Why is there something rather than nothing?”
“Misotheist” comes in a close second!
And don’t forget Romans 5:8
I wonder what they will be saying if they are successful and go to Hell?
“I’m not here...I’m not here...I’m not here...”
I can’t think of anyone who is MORE alone than an atheist.
Too bad someone with some money doesn't put up some bill boards with that very same message, only with a background picture of people suffering and burning in the fires of H E double L
If you can write the check to the billboard company, you should be able to say what ever you want.
No, they know He is there. Deep down inside they know. Their pride and sin, the darkness in their hearts, won't allow themselves to admit it. But someday they will confess, they will bow down.
18The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualitieshis eternal power and divine naturehave been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. 21For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.
Is it possible for something to be scary and funny at the same time? LOL Yikes LOL Yikes...
In the end, Jesus will seperate the sheep from the goats. Those loyal to the Lord will be reward with eternal paradise, those loyal to Satan (willing, ignorant or indifferant) will find themselves in eternal torment in Hell.
Can you imagine that day when the damned (discovering their terrible fate) beg, cry, pleed, demand, cajole and make every excuse for mercy? Some will simply bow their heads in shame and accept their fate, others will moan is agony.
As the fires consume them, they will try (in vain) to blame you, God, their guardian angels, their family, their friends, Satan, and finally themselves. They will curse themselves as they remember every attempt where God gave them a second chance. They will curse themselves when they recall the times they rejected God and accepted sin. God does not send people to Hell, people choose it.
AND SATAN HAS A SPECIAL PLACE IN HELL FOR THOSE WHO LEAD GOD’S CHILDREN ASTRAY....AND AN EVEN NASTIER PLACE TO THOSE WHO BLASPHEME!!!
“But does not God forgive?” They will whine as they descend into Hell, “Can I not just say I’m sorry when I meet him.” No. In death, it’s too late.
Thus endeth the eternal lesson.
Really? Anything you want? How about graphic photos of aborted children? Should there be no response, from those who disagree?
atheists often come to God on their deathbed. When they are broken and hopeless and have no-one to turn to, they seek God.
Yes, both the atheist and the pro-life activist should have the right to rent space on a billboard.
... but no one has any right to be upset, or to disagree with such billboards? Just trying to follow your logic, here.
Ridiculous - that message is not “anti-God”. A free society by definition includes millions of non-believers, otherwise it’s a theocracy like Saudi Arabia, where being a “non-believer” is forbidden and punishable by death. That systems works great, huh? Ask yourselve why fellow citizens who simply don’t believe in God is so threatening to you.
Simply because someone’s free speech may upset you does not mean the person voicing their opinion should be silenced of subject to violence or vandalism.
Whose trying to stop them? We have already come up with a counter slogan for the billboard across the street.
