Quote# 53106

America has forgotten the God of the Bible. In the 1960's we forgot God by removing prayer and the Bible from our schools. In the 1970's we forgot God by legalizing abortion in our hospitals. In the 1980's we forgot God by removing the Bible from our churches and replacing It with the corrupted New International Version (NIV) that removes the name above every other name, Jesus, in 38 places!!! In the 1990's America forgot God by introducing the vile "Gay Agenda" into society. And now in the new millennium we are facing the reality of legalized same-sex marriages and America just voted for a Communist U.S. president. Woe unto America!

To add insult to injury, on November 12, 2008 it was announced in the news that a humanist group is paying to have advertisements placed on public buses in the Washington D.C. area that read... "Why believe in a god? Just be good for goodness' sake" (actual bus ad is pictured in photo to right). The signs will run from the middle of November throughout December... That is so evil and sad. We read in Daniel 5:23, “...the God in whose hand thy breath is, and whose are all thy ways, hast thou not glorified.” It is a sad day in America, and clear evidence of the apostasy, when its citizens tolerate such messages in public, being taunted in our faces to provoke us. It is a shame!
This ad is incredibly insulting! Do you think you could get away with saying something like, “Why believe in Evolution?” Absolutely not! So why is it ok to attack Christian beliefs at one of the most important holidays for us? I think it is a despicable show of character on the part of the advertisers and the public transportation company which allowed this filth. It is also a horrible reflection on the mayor and leaders of Washington D.C.

Fuck off, David. I will not even dignify your drivel with actual refutations.

Funny thing, that your god has unaccountably done absolutely nothing about any of that over those three decades, just as he's done nothing for the millennia preceding them.

I've got the ghost of Karl Marx on the other line. He asked me to relay the following message: "Obama a Communist? WTF have you been smoking?"

I like how David J. Stewart puts the blame for the humanist bus ads on the public transport company and the ad agency who were simply doing their jobs. Had they been approached by a church group then they would also have shown their adverts (if the buses in Washington DC are anything like the buses here in Norwich, there'd be no shortage of these). Even from a religious perspective it is unreasonable to expect a commercial organisation to be obliged to preach the Gospel.

Edit: also telling that he considers censorship to be in the mayor's remit.

The fact that the signs say "a god" and not "God" shows that it's not aimed only at Christians or any other religious group, but at religion in general. Stewart finds it "evil" to suggest that it's possible to "be good" without living in fear of eternal damnation.

Oh, and no one "believes" in evolution, so your example makes about as much sense as putting up a sign that says, "Why believe in gravity?"

Do you think you could get away with saying something like, “Why believe in Evolution?”

Uh, yes. I see that crap on TV all the time (though thankfully it's usually just confined to TBN or one of the local Jesus channels). You guys are just sooooo oppressed, aren't you? I probably drive by about 30 church signs or billboards every day, but OMG a non-christian sign!? Help, we're being oppressed!!!!

Well, like the song says 'let old acquaintance be forgot'. Especially when you haven't seen them for a thousand years. I mean he could at least call every once in a while, just to say 'hi'.

"In the 1980's we forgot God by removing the Bible from our churches and replacing It with the corrupted New International Version (NIV) that removes the name above every other name, Jesus, in 38 places!!!"

So? The bible translation you're whining about them replacing was produced by a gay/bi-sexual king. Why aren't you all purple in the face about that?


""Why believe in a god? Just be good for goodness' sake" (actual bus ad is pictured in photo to right). The signs will run from the middle of November throughout December... That is so evil and sad."

Yes. Being good simply for the sake of being good is SO evil. *eyeroll*


"This ad is incredibly insulting!"

How? It does not state that "Your god doesn't exist, losers!" or anything of the kind. It asks a simple question, and your reaction to it speaks volumes about your "righteousness".


"So why is it ok to attack Christian beliefs at one of the most important holidays for us?"

The ad says "a god." That does not equal an "attack [on] Christian beliefs," and your "most important holiday" isn't even yours. It is a pagan festival celebrating, among other things, the winter solstice. Christians stole it from other, older religions and customs, like they stole most of their other holidays and mythology.


"America has forgotten the God of the Bible."

We cannot possibly forget him when you people won't fucking shut up about it.

America never remembered Allah. He punished us by giving us eight years of one of the biggest idiots on earth as leader of our country. He also happened to be an evangelical christian.

Then get the fuck out of America, and don't let the door hit your ass on the way out.

Absolutely not. Evolution is real, while your invisible man is not.

Dave you are such a fucking lying hypocrite. I see busses all the time adverising churches, revivals, Billy Graham ministries crusades, Joyce(Give me money) Meyers, and Pat Robertson's loathesome TV network.PS I don't like the busses either to be honest. I think it is a bit hypocritical after all the fun atheists make of Christians prostelitizing.

America has forgotten the God of 18th-century Deism.

As for the transit authority, given that it's a public agency, it's bound by that nasty old First Amendment.

"America has forgotten the God of the Bible."

Specifically, D.J. Stewpid&Co. have forgotten what a crazy, vicious bastard he's supposed to be. Or maybe that's what they like about him – the resemblance.

"America has forgotten the God of the Bible. In the 1960's we forgot God by removing prayer and the Bible from our schools. In the 1970's we forgot God by legalizing abortion in our hospitals.

And yet we're still here...

What happened to the plagues that used to happen to entire countries for not obeying god? Where's the pillars of fire, earthquakes and booming voices from the sky? Why hasn't Canada been commanded to invade and slaughter us all like they would have been in the OT? Why does your god not seem to exist or, if he does, he either doesn't give a damn or he's impotent to do anything about it?

"To add insult to injury, on November 12, 2008 it was announced in the news that a humanist group is paying to have advertisements placed on public buses in the Washington D.C. area that read... "Why believe in a god? Just be good for goodness' sake" (actual bus ad is pictured in photo to right)."

It's called free speech buddy. Get used to it. If you stupid fundy fuckers could figure out how free speech works you could do the same damned thing. Unfortunately for you guys, "free speech" instantly equates with plastering your religious drivel up on federal buildings or hate speech.

"The signs will run from the middle of November throughout December... That is so evil and sad. We read in Daniel 5:23, “...the God in whose hand thy breath is, and whose are all thy ways, hast thou not glorified.” It is a sad day in America, and clear evidence of the apostasy, when its citizens tolerate such messages in public, being taunted in our faces to provoke us. It is a shame!"

It is a shame. A shame that you had no idea what to think of such a thing until you found some obscure, half-ass, barely relevant sentence in your Wholly Babble.

Try thinking for yourself instead of referring to your book of Bronze Age "wisdom".

"This ad is incredibly insulting!"

So are you and more than a few of your religion. And I completely support your right to be such and anyone who tried to take that right from your or oppress you would find me quickly on your side. You, on the other hand, would never fucking think to do such a thing for someone who doesn't share your views.

"Do you think you could get away with saying something like, “Why believe in Evolution?” Absolutely not!"

And just why do you think that? Other than a few strange looks and a few comments from those less tolerable of stunning displays of ignorance I don't know what you'd expect to happen.

"So why is it ok to attack Christian beliefs at one of the most important holidays for us?"

Who says it's attacking Christians? I don't see any religions mentioned there.

"I think it is a despicable show of character on the part of the advertisers and the public transportation company which allowed this filth."

They need money so they allow advertisements. What someone advertises is generally their responsibility, not the one running the ad.

"It is also a horrible reflection on the mayor and leaders of Washington D.C."

Yes. Demand that free speech be obliterated in the fucking capital of the United States. Good idea.

"And now in the new millennium we are facing the reality of legalized same-sex marriages and America just voted for a Communist U.S. president. Woe unto America!"

Then your only alternative is obvious. Would someone be so kind as to show Mr. Stewart the door? I hear the Middle East is lovely this time of year (plus, they're just as batshit crazy about infantile fairy tales as you are, so you'll blend like a chameleon).

Mr. Stewart seems to be forgetting those stupid black billboards with "I haven't heard from you in a while -- God" on them.

And some bus billboards are insulting. Right.

The literal mountains of evidence, for one.

Do you think you could get away with saying something like, “Why believe in Evolution?” Absolutely not!
Sure you could,if you paid for it. I see ads on the T, Boston's subway, from churches trying to get new members all the time. They pay for the space just like Seagram's or a local night school would.

David B.

"Do you think you could get away with saying something like, “Why believe in Evolution?”"

Yes, given that there are whole institutes devoted to saying just that. And spreading videos and books saying just that. And holding lectures saying just that.

Correction, they don't say "Why believe in Evolution?", they say "Don't believe in Evolution!"

""Why believe in a god? Just be good for goodness' sake" [...] That is so evil and sad."

Be good. Not because you'll be rewarded if you do. Not because you'll be punished if you don't. Be good because to do so is to do good. Be helpful, kind, considerate and polite. Imagine if everyone you met today was the same to you, how would you feel? So be that way to other people, maybe you won't get equal treatment, but you've probably made the world a little nicer for somebody. Think about that for a minute; you have changed the world for the better, which is pretty f**king amazing.

And how does DJS describe this sentiment? As "evil" and "sad". Why? Because you would not do these things out of fear that his imaginary friend will otherwise torture you for all eternity, or in the hope that this invisible magic man will give you infinite pleasure in return.

So the question stands, why believe in God? As DJS describes him, the tosser isn't worth your time anyway.
