Skip to comments.American Atheists' Billboard Calls for Christmas Minus "Myth" of Christ

"We know that a large population of 'Christians' are actually atheists who feel trapped in their family's religion. If you know god is a myth, you do not have to lie and call yourself 'Christian' in order to have a festive holiday season. You can be merry without the myth, and indeed, you should," said David Silverman, President of American Atheists.

Atheism...when you don’t believe in anything...not even yourself.
It’s OK for Lefties to shove their values down our throats, but don’t you DARE return the favor.
“Myth”? There’s a Vatican Library full of information to the contrary.
Atheists don’t pull this crap during Ramadan.
If they want to worship a make believe, fat guy in a red suit, and spend oodles of money they don't have, to buy gifts for people that will forget the gift in a week, I won't stop them. And I'll still wish them a Merry Christmas the same as anybody else.
I don’t know, let the atheists waste their money. It may unwittingly drive more people to think about Jesus, and whether they celebrate the holiday for secular or religious reasons.
It is a sinful billboard, to be sure, but I don’t know if I’d blame Lamar advertising. I think I might try to put up something like:
Have EID without Mohammed! It’s ok to have a holiday without a false prophet!
And see if Lamar would accept it. If not, the other one should be taken down.
Well, I guess if you can have morality without God, I guess you can celebrate Christmas without Christ. Neither is philosophically coherant, but what else is new today?
We are ruled by low information voters and you find them in every area of life.
I guess “Merry Winter Solstice” just didn’t fly.
I cannot fathom while this little punk MUST get the word out like this - why MUST they do this? It’s like a kid that cannot resist putting his hand in the cookie jar. In my 47 years of Catholicism, I have never pushed my faith onto anyone else.
What is it with these people that they just gotta get their shot in?
Every “atheist” I know celebrates Christmas exactly the same way Christians do. My daughter in law even goes to church and sings carols.
But she is always quick to lecture on the myth. Frankly she is more angry at God than she is sure He doesn’t exist.
This ad does so many things beneficial to atheists beliefs, or should I say non-belief. Insult Christians and Christianity; it is a put-down and mockery to believers by displaying a photo of a suffering Jesus on the cross, and equating everything holy and redeeming in Christ’s death to the mythical Santa Clause... I could go on and on. I’m sickened by this. I just encourage everyone to contact Lamar and make your feelings known.
Atheism's retention rate, however, is less than 40%. And it only gets worse after they die.
Frankly these people like to flaunt what they think is their superior intellect. They are so smart they don’t need to lean on or believe in a “myth”.
That’s why they push it on us.
Nope I am not offended at all. That is their right to free speech.
I get offended when these idiots want to tear down nativity scenes and any reference to God. Guess they should stop using currency that says “In God We Trust”.
1st Amendment works both ways. I am a Christian, but protesting against this is anathema.
You win people by converting them, not by protesting against them.
They just keep asking themselves, “is nothing sacred”?
Sort of like the gay mafia. They got sodomy legalized. Then civil unions. Not being satisfied with that, they now seek to redefine marriage. Their eventual goal is to turn scumbags like Jerry Sandusky into heros for teaching little boys their "true" sexuality.
I read where a liberal stated that CHRISTmas was too religious and the HOLYday made her uncomfortable.
Evidently thinking Christians somehow hijacked the Christmas Holiday.
Of course not, they only target Christianity. I saw David Silverman, president of American Atheists, in an interview, actually admit they do not post billboards against other religions!
