It really is magic. Whenever atheists put up one of their innocuous billboards, with some mild statement that I find tepid and utterly uncontroversial, the Christians just have to charge in and make it newsworthy. The latest case is in Ohio, where Mid Ohio Atheists planned to put up this billboard:
At the last minute, though, the billboard company yanked their agreement to put up the signs and cancelled the contract. Why?
…the inflammatory nature of the proposed displays would no doubt be considered offensive to much of the community and would be harmful to Lind’s community reputation and goodwill. Lind has always and will continue to reserve the right not to publish advertisements which, in its sole opinion, are obscene, unnecessarily offensive and/or not in the best interests of the community at large.
Oh, yeah, that sign sure is obscene and offensive.
But hooray! The theists have successfully inflamed the issue and made their discrimination the focus of the news! It’s so obliging of them to stand up, put on the big black hat, and paint themselves as the villains.
