Has anyone seen the few pro-atheist billboards yet. It's a bold move for a place like Louisville.
What do you Louisvillians think of them?

I have no problem with it. Now coming up to me on the street and pushing your religion or lack thereof in my face is not welcome. That goes for everyone including my religion of Christianity.

"Woe to the world because of scandals. For it must needs be that scandals come: but nevertheless woe to that man by whom the scandal cometh." St. Matthew 18:7

Christ wasn't a Louisvillian, but I tend to agree with him.

Same here, Alan. To each their own.

Of course, I'd guess that Louisville is (one of) the most tolerant areas of the state. I doubt those billboards would last long, or even be put up in the first place, in the more rural areas.

On a related note, is the "Hell is Real" billboard on 65 still up? It's placement across from the billboard advertising the porn store was pure comedy. I know earlier this year they were talking about taking it down because they might lose transportation funding if it stayed up (or something like that) but I don't remember ever hearing the final words on the matter.

I fully agree.

I don't live there anymore, but even if I did, they wouldn't bother me. I say if you don't like something then just don't give it the time of day. that's just me though and I know a lot of religious extremists who would be woefully offended by such a thing, as it would clash mightily with their faith. Personally, I also find that extremists usually have no tolerance for difference of opinion or beliefs though.

and billboards are like anything, here today, gone tomorrow. Why waste time worrying about something that is relatively benign, that you can ignore? I'd think one would rather use that energy for other more interesting things.

I find it so interesting that people who try to live by God's laws are often branded as "extremists." Personally I find liberal types that don't hold God in any kind of esteem usually have no tolerance for those of us who do and often resort to ridiculous generalities in order to prove their flawed philosophies.

Cattknap, that's the great thing about America. We're ALL entitled to our own opinions. And ALL of them carry equal weight! FWIW, I know PLENTY of people of faith who aren't extremists. Extremeists are tose that force their beliefs on the rest of us. FWIW, there are obnoxious Atheists, too...

Unlike what you just posted, I assume.
