Its a very small segment, but this is how get the most attention. And of course the media is right there giving them the attention they do not deserve. Their parents must be very proud.

Bet they have coexist bumperstickers on their car. Screw them. The university should shut them down. This isn’t a free speech issue.

>>This isn’t a free speech issue.<<

Actually, it is. It is when we defend speech we find repugnant that we truly exercise that right.

This is a real teeth-gritter.

These people are vile. They should not continue to get any more publicity than they’ve already received. Let’s cut their Fifteen Minutes down to five.

Ya never know. One of those Bibles may lead to a new believer.

They may be doing the Lord’s work without realizing it.

People who have enough time to participate in this crap on campus usually end up being the ones who complain about the tons of money they have to pay back in student loans because they cannot get real jobs.

They do something outrageous like this because they know it riles people up. Pass them by and spoil their fun. Anyone who ignores the Bible’s massive importance, not just religiously, but culturally, and equates it with porn, is a pinhead, and not worth anyone’s time or outrage.

Those atheists: really classy people.

Too them, spiritual revelation and the Words of Life are dirtier than the exploitation and objectification of women.

Anyone that mocks Christ is an ass.

I noted in a previous post that this is an example of Neo-Atheism or Post 9/11 Atheism. Atheists are no longer satisfied being Atheists, but they have begun an active evangelism and conversion effort. They believe that it is their duty to save us from a theistic religion. It is a hard sell when you consider what they are selling: life has no meaning or purpose, morality is an illusion, you have no soul, you are no more valuable than any other animal, you are on your own, and there is no after life, just annihilation. On the other hand, you do not have to worry about an eternal judgment or a judgmental god. It does not matter what you do or do not do, for it all ends in nothingness. You are your own god, Ubermensch. That sort of philosophy of life is attractive to some people.

Absolutely nothing. Unless you are a Muslim.

Their sign says “holy text”, not “Bible”. Wonder what their reaction would be if somebody plunked down a dozen Korans, and said, “it’s a deal!”

True, we must defend repugnant speech, but what crosses the line. Use the “can’t yell fire in a theater” test. This might even qualify for as a hate crime.
