I too don't understand how a banner saying "god less" American proves they are patriotic.
"God less America" is a play on words for the common patriotic phrase "God bless America". Obviously they could have come up with something else like "Atheists love America", but whoever paid for the sign must have liked the way "God less America" rolled off the tongue. What is important is not what the sign said, but the message it conveys....Atheists are just as American and patriotic as any theist.

As an atheist I can tell you from my perspective that it's not necessary at all and I find it a bit appalling even. It does not shed a good light on me or those who disagree with such activities for sure.
I'll admit that if I looked up in the sky and saw a banner with the caption "God-Less America",
Finally we have proof that atheists are a religion after all.

As such, it can be seen as infringement upon others rights, since the concept to abolish religion is quite clearly stated within those mere 3 words.!
What rights are being infringed upon? How is this infringing on the rights of others?

What's funny,oh noble german shepard, is that atheist belittle religious believers for "pushing" their religion on them yet they do the same thing!
Atheist=Democrats= hypocrites =FAIL
When did a atheist automatically become a democrat? Lets use your little saying once more.
Christians = Republicans = Ignorance & Intolerance = Fail

My logic made perfect sense. You can't blame me for your lack of reading comprehension. I showed how it was worded solely to offend rather than getting their "point" across. If someone sees that statement only, they surely would not think to themselves "whoa atheists are patriotic!".
