Please reconsider the decison of Lind to not post the billboards for the Mid-Ohio Atheists. I’m not sure what you think an atheist is, but I’ll tell you anyway; It’s merely someone who does not see the evidence for a supernatural being. Perhaps you’d like to post some bible verses instead? How about these:
- Deuteronomy 17:12 - The man who shows contempt for the judge or for the priest who stands ministering there to the LORD your God must be put to death. You must purge the evil from Israel.
- Exodus 21:15 - Whoever strikes his father or mother shall be put to death.
- Leviticus 20:9 - If a man commits adultery with another man’s wife, both the man and the woman must be put to death.
- Leviticus 21:9 - A priest’s daughter who loses her honor by committing fornication and thereby dishonors her father also, shall be burned to death.
- 2 Chronicles 15:12-13 - They entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and soul; and everyone who whould not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, was to be put to death, whether great or small, whether man or woman.
Or, if you’d rather have the bible endorse rape, let’s all turn in our bibles to:
- Deuteronomy 22:23-24 If within the city a man comes upon a maiden who is betrothed, and has relations with her, you shall bring them both out of the gate of teh city and there stone them to death: the girl because she did not cry out for help though she was in the city, and the man because he violated his neighbor’s wife.
And so it goes.
I’m sorry, but your claim of “best interests of the community at large” doesn’t really fly. You allow billboards by churches, who preach fear of hell to little children to drive them to subjugate themselves to a supposed god (actually, the local minister/pastor/priest) rather than teaching them to think critically and rationally for themselves.
A question - would you similarly deny posting of a billboard proclaiming evolution as the history of life on earth?
Here’s hoping you come to your senses, and if you don’t, here’s hoping Lind get sued to the hilt.
