So now a Christian group in Fort Worth has hired a "mobile billboard" truck to follow around the buses with the "Millions of Americans are good without God" ads on them. The truck's billboards read "I still love you - God" and "2.1 billion people are good with God."
One of the financiers of the truck interviewed said "These are business owners and individuals that really just want the atheists to know that God hasn't given up on them."
Umm....thanks? The nearest church to me with JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON in 5 foot tall letters out next to the road must be all of five blocks away. Who knows what would happen if I happened to see a bus drive by reminding me that godless people aren't evil if it weren't immediately followed by a message reiterating that people with God* aren't either? For one second life amidst the normal deluge of pro-Christian messages that is living in DFW might be interrupted by someone saying "Hey, we're okay too." Best to drown that out immediately. Hire a stalkermobile, stat!
Edit: Somebody on Dispatches commented:
How about a bus to follow the bus that follows the bus that says "1 billion hindus are good with gansesh" or "1.5 billion muslims are good with allah" or "ancient greeks were good with zeus" or "the norse were good with odin".Hee. If everybody joined in, we could get a good long caravan going...
* Only 2.1 billion? I guess "good with God" only refers to the Christians.
