If it’s not the extreme Left, it’s the extreme Right trying to censor dissenting opinions. In this case it’s the Right deciding that a pretty inoffensive atheist billboard needs to be taken down…because feels.
A billboard promoting atheism during the holiday season has been run out of town by Christians in Monroe, Louisiana, who deemed it too offensive for their community’s religious sensibilities to tolerate.
Why do people want to ban different opinions?
Local news station KNOE reports that a billboard paid for by the American Atheists organization has been removed after multiple people in Monroe complained about being offended by it. The electronic billboard told people that they could “make Christmas great again” by skipping church this year, while also promoting the concept of an “Atheist Christmas.”
Get over yourselves. Just let the billboard stand, discuss it, explain why you disagree with it and let people decide for themselves which party has the better arguments. Stop trying to censor, drown out and get rid of any opinion that doesn’t match your own. It’s embarrassing when the Left does it and it’s just as shameful when the Right does it.
You’re like two sides of the same coin.
“I praise God that there was so much stirred up about it that it was taken down,” Monroe resident Shawn Cooper told KNOE.
Why would you praise God over this? Do you think getting it taken down is going to change someone’s mind? Do you think the discussion won’t happen if you just get this sign taken down? Do you think your God is so weak it can’t handle a billboard?
I think what you’re really afraid of is that people might agree with that sign. I think you’re worried that your arguments will have to stand on merit instead of being the only voice heard.
