It's funny that an advertising show is having a contest for ads whose purpose is to convince (who?) to ban free-thinking.
Man, I couldn't see ANY atheist groups doing this. No way, atheists don't advertise (and neither do churches, amirite?)!
I guess you don't live in an area of the world where you drive by religious billboards or see religious commercials daily. Must be nice.
The audience is pretty obvious: attempt to persuade people to leave religion. Some folks make being anti-religion their religion.
Actually we don't have billboards where I live. Regardless, no, I've never seen a religion advertising to ban atheism.
If I were religious I don't think either of those commercials would make me question my beliefs. They'd probably **** me off with their stupid rhetoric.
Lucky. Every day I pass by this billboard:
It's pretty inoffensive, but I bet it would **** off a hardcore atheist. Hence why I would have no problem believing an atheist group would fund a commercial like those on here. I don't think they'll work necessarily, but when people define themselves by a specific belief, they tend to let reason go out the window.
Just my opinion, eh. That's why posts are made yes?
Yep, and I'm just being antagonistic because I'm an Annoying *** (TM)
Edit: Actually, I think the billboard I see has the same quote attributed to Hebrews 9:27, not Revelation. Details. Edited, Sep 8th 2011 9:33am by LockeColeMA
