That's so flabbergasting I almost hope it's just a straw-man put up by unscrupulous members of my side to make the religious right look bad.

Too bad it isn't.

Personally, I think a civil war would be great!

When you consider that, for the most part, the Religious Right lives in the poorest states and the Moderates, Liberals and Leftists live in the richest states, civil war becomes a more viable solution to our problems every minute! Let them have their "Christian Nation" full of bigots and teenage pregnancies while we have universal civil rights and full-disclosure sex ed. Lets see how Alabama and Mississippi and West Virginia, etc. fare when they are no longer getting federal tax dollars from New York and California and Massachusetts.

They control a large portion of the food & energy supply, and have most of the guns.
It'd be ugly.

Ok. I looked this guy up. He was a fairly well known Catholic priest, he paid for the billboards out of $$ he'd earned over his life. He did it from a nursing home shortly before his death in 2006, so sending letters to him would be pointless. He was also suffering diminished capacity at the time.

He was elderly & living in a nursing home & suffering from dementia when he wrote it.

Well, it's addressed to "lunatic atheists." Maybe he's distinguishing between lunatics who happen to be atheists and the more reasonable ones who thought things through.

I can see why you'd feel annoyed. I've encountered a number of people who'd agree with this billboard, and I've found it pretty frustrating.

I was just thinking this... I'm willing to concede some atheists and lawyers are lunatics. Just like there are normal ones, slightly neurotic ones, OCD ones, etc.

Need some perspective, here. Is this sign still up?

I'm thinking this is pretty "fringe," even for the fundies.

Of course, based on this site, I could be wrong.

I bet this is on a REALLY tall pole. If this sign was here, it would have been graffed instantly.And then laughed at. A lot.

What about the sane atheists? Does the sign still apply to them? ^_^
I *headdesk* all the same, though. Stupid sign makes no sense and only serves to divide people even further.

How about a letter writing campaign to tell Rev. Briggs how wrong he is. How about a fundraising campaign to put up a countering message right next to this one?

I have just the thing for a billboard:

"Dear reactionary Christian right fringe (that's right, your views aren't mainstream by a long shot):

Live your life and I'll live mine.

No love,
Everyone else"

Thank you. Now I know where to avoid.

Too bad, West Virginia is pretty. Nice caves to explore, too.

Guess I'll just avoid Monongah on Sundays...
