This was posted on my facebook news feed a few minutes ago, not sure if it has been started here yet, but it has caused quite a debate on freedom of
speech and the beliefs in God.
I have to say I defend this billboard as it is just an advertisement. It is also our American right to have freedom of speech and people are saying
"take it down", "its an abomination", and preaching left and right on how they will go to hell because of it. Well, so what! If we(yes me too) do
not believe in God and want to advertise that, we can and we will. Just like all of you religious people do, and you do advertise a lot. I mean
really? I have seen tons of billboards promoting churches and never got offended. We live in a very diverse world full of people with different
beliefs and religions etc. Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs and opinions and shouldnt be judged by another human for doing so.
Anyway, those are my thoughts on all of this..I might have a bit more to say later if any of you want to weigh in on this, be my guest...
A controversial billboard is up in Kentucky. now some Christians say - it needs to come down - while others are claiming freedom of speech. The
billboard hasn't been up very long. It says, "Don't believe in God? Join the club." That "club" is the "Bluegrass Coalition of Reason." And
they want everyone to know they are there. A spokesperson for the club said, "We are not here to change anyone's opinion or tell anybody they are
wrong or right or anything else. We are just trying to advertise that we are here." As you can imagine, not everyone is thrilled. This billboard is
not unique to Lexington. They've been put up in Colorado, Idaho and Florida.
