NORTH CAROLINA: Atheist Billboards Near DNC Removed After Christian Threats
American Atheists have removed their billboards outside the venue for the Democratic National Convention after being deluged with threats from God's Gentle People™.
"We are saddened that by choosing to express our rights as atheists through questioning the religious beliefs of the men who want to be our president that our fellow citizens have responded with vitriol, threats, and hate speech against our staff, volunteers, and Adams Outdoor Advertising." "The election of our leaders in the United States is one of the most important decisions that we as citizens make," said American Atheists' president David Silverman. "Allowing our judgment to be clouded by sheer silliness is unacceptable. We want to show the people of our country the foolishness of mixing religion with politics." Silverman says the billboards were meant to inspire conversation and challenge the status quo.Christian television is delighted to report the good news.
