I'm not seeing the vandalism in the picture?

But Christians? Vandalizing or destroying things they don't agree with? Nahhhhh never. They're totally peaceful and full of love! Right? Rolleyes

When I was in Egypt and marvelling at the amazing structures the Egyptians erected I saw many defaced by the Coptic Christians as far back as 1900 BCE. Weeping

Feh. Never trust an outfit whose logo looks like something from a 1950s movie about atomic war.

The first?

What about the Ingersoll statue in Peoria? Not clearly labelled "atheist" but ...

I saw some of the picket signs from the protesters stating that the south was a Christian Southern Nation. I didn't realize the south was considered a Southern Nation? WTF?

No, they're not. They are traitors.

RE: The first public atheist monument in the U.S.!
I think it's kinda cool. There are plenty of Christian type monuments. Why not have something for atheists?

I also find it telling that someone mentioned it's already been vandalized. When we went to San Francisco, we were walking though the North Beach area and stopped into St Peter and Paul's church...

It didn't occur to me that I should vandalize it. We walked around looked at the architecture -- snickered a little -- but harm it?? No.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

I love how these traitors are the first ones to call someone UnAmerican.
