Great! Not only in Texas, but in a city named "Body of Christ"!

This is great! I wonder if it'd be taken down? I hope it won't.

Glad to hear it. I used to live there, and I think it'll do 'em some good.

My favorite comment:

Quote
If you can read, spell and do math, most people around here consider you a "liberal." They love that word. "Liberal this and Liberal that and liberal underneath the stairs and on the lawn and even on the kitchen table when you're feeling randy."

If I was in a serious jam, I'd rather be with some godforsaken atheist than some crazy person who sees Mother Mary and Baby Jesus in every tortilla, cookie, misshapen potato or urine stain underneath a bridge.

All that being said, I think the signs are silly, and were just put up there to rile you hillbillies. Most of you never read a book, any book, and most especially the "good book," and yet you let the words on a billboard get your undies in a snit.
Of course, that billboard is not actually there to rile up the hillbillies (that would be my advert for vegan gay muslim babysitting and abortion services) but to reach out to atheists who have the deep misfortune of living in Texas (just be glad it's not Kansas) and feel a little isolated from fellow atheists.

And yes, us atheists are great in a jam.  Every single one of us has a zombie plan and a rapture plan.  We love science/technology and we're not afraid to use it.  And if we have to resort to cannibalism, we're totally okay with eating the children first.

I posted a comment as "Zopdoz". It says that they have to screen my post since I'm a new user. Let's see if it actually makes it.

The commentary is interesting. The liberal-bashing guy's comments actually kind of reinforce my atheism for some reason. What a fucking idiot.

I could really care less if you don't believe in God, I feel sorry for you, but I do realize that is your choice. As for as your opinion or views on how I should feel about my God, this is nothing new.
What I want to know is how a sign that says you're not alone if you don't believe in god is in any way telling this guy how he should feel about his god.

I do have a zombie plan (and a backup zombie plan), but I do not have a rapture plan.  It just doesn't seem likely enough to warrant the time it would take to plan for it.  But, yeah, everyone should have a zombie plan.

It basically just involves a seaside resort, a good book, and world peace.  The Rapture is sort of an anti-apocalypse.  Instead of it being the end of the world, it's basically just a sudden removal of all the idjits.

I suggest we make T-shirts for the event.  Zombie Jesus revisits earth to gather all his minions.......buwwaaahaaa!

The sweet part is that the only advertising you'd have to do is to tell one fundamentalist church member and they'll take care of the rest.  You'll get free signage, a door to door pamphlet campaign, a huge volunteer force , probably even face time on the local news.  All from people trying to get people NOT to buy them.
