Atheist group at UT San Antonio offers porn in exchange for bibles
SAN ANTONIO -- An atheist student group at UTSA is again offering to trade porn for bibles.

Atheist Agenda set up a booth on the UTSA campus on the Northwest Side and asked students to bring in their bibles in exchange for pornographic magazines. The event is called "Smut for Smut" and, obviously, brings with it some big controversy.

"It is to send a message that the stuff in the bible, and the Quran, and the Torah, and all that sort of thing is, in our case worse, in our opinion worse, than pornography," explained UTSA student Kyle Bush.

"I can see that God can definitely use this for a greater purpose," UTSA student Alex Liu
said. "And I see a lot of Christian organizations coming together, you know, to be brothers and sisters standing up for their faith."

This is the second year in a row for the event. Christian students were also out talking to fellow students about their beliefs. It's not known how many students actually turned in their bibles for the pornographic material.

My reason for being is to serve as a cat cushion. That is good enough for me. Wink

If you're trying to get people to listen to you and take you seriously, to have a equal place setting at the table when ideas are discussed and reasonable debates are to be made, then, typically, acting like a douche bag is not the best way to get there. And, a campaign like this one is the epitome of acting like a douche bag.

This is like the book burning thing: you can have your own symbolism, but that doesn't mean that people will get it. People will take this as mockery, and that's not good.

Freethinkers did this in Helsinki, and I think the church acted much more maturely than the freethinkers in that case.

Correct me when I'm wrong.
Accept me or go to hell.

This is amusing in an asshole way but at the end it does more harm than good.
If you want to prove the bible , as a book , is crap then you hold a debate not offer to exchange it for porn.Seems immature , but hey , it's college. Tongue

Atheism is a religion like OFF is a TV channel !!!

Proud of my genetic relatives Big Grin

The porn has less sex than the bible and a lot less violence and the porn is not pretending to be anything but porn.

When I find myself in times of trouble, Richard Dawkins comes to me, speaking words of reason, now I see, now I see.

I think this is hilarious, sure it might be a bit immature, but I think it is a good, non-violent message.

Religious people are as humorless as their religion are, so they won't understand that and why their 'holy books' are far worse than any hard-core porn.
They'd shake their head, raise her hands and keep singing alleluja.

However, the idea is funny Big Grin

I Agree. "TWO WRONGS Do NOT Make a right"!
It Sends the Wrong Message!

It has worked for religion for thousands of years, it just doesn't work for atheism.
