Tampa didn't put them up? sissies.. I don't find anything wrong with these billboards. Atheist are funny to me... gotta believe in something. I know a few Atheist and the majority are no different then any other religious segment.

As I mentioned earlier, try to post a similar hate message against one of the other religions and you'll find out.

I think people make fun of Christianity so much because it promotes forgiveness and loving your enemy.

Why is it politically correct and accepted to publicly attack and ridicule the "majority" and we all have to just take it?

If the boards would've picked on any other religion in this country, the guy would've been rightfully called up as instigator and probably arrested, the boards would've been taken down immediately.

Does the majority not have same rights as the minority, although we all pay taxes?
If this shakes and disgusts you, I hope you never encounter anything truly disturbing.

The other religions are much more aggressive and strict with their religious laws.

Sorry but I don't get your point.

Oh well, slander me all you want, accuse me of all the hate in the world sobeit....what I do know and what I am not confused about is GOD's word and what it says and admonishes. Whether non-believers or the half-believers fail to realize is that every single one of us has to stand before GOD and answer for all that we have done. I would caution one to tread very lightly.

I am thankful that I am a Christian!
It's politically correct today to attack Christians. If that same billboard had been put up attacking Islam, the left would be outraged. It's quite ironic as Islam actually supports the killing of homosexuals. If a company like Exodus International decided to put up a billboard, I am almost certain it would be forced to be taken down.
