Unholy Water

After members from a Florida church "anointed" a section of highway with "holy oils," a group of atheists arrived with "unholy water" to unbless the road.
Glen Copple, an associate pastor at Northside Christian Church in Lakeland, said Saturday's symbolic cleanup of holy oil by the Humanists of Florida was a "ludicrous" event that solely sought publicity. "I find it absolutely ludicrous that the atheists who say they don't believe in God have to erase something that they don't believe in," Copple told "They were just desperate for a little attention for their cause. Only two of them showed up, it wasn't a big gathering." Armed with brooms, mops and "unholy water," atheists with the Humanists of Florida gathered on Saturday to symbolically remove holy oil that Polk Under Prayer put down on Highway 98 near the Pasco-Polk county line last year, Bay News 9 reported.
Even though this has nothing to do with Catholics, from a thousand miles away, Bill Donohue has an opinion: "They acted in the grand tradition of atheist groups by going negative. Having no positive statement to make, it wants to obliterate speech it disagrees with. While the atheists are within their legal rights to attack the Christian message, it shows once again their proclivity to intolerance. Bullying is what defines them."

I've got some holy water for Donohue right here.
