A Portland, Oregon atheist group has their panties in a wad over some juvenile vandalism on one of their billboards. The Freedom From Religion Foundation placed a series 15 billboards on highways to introduce Portlanders to their “friendly neighborhood atheists.”
The billboard features Mark Hecate, an I.T. director for a local nonprofit, New Avenues for Youth, which works to empower homeless youth to exit street life.
“We learned about the defacement from someone in Portland who called it ‘fundamentalist humor,’ ” said FFRF Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor. “But here is someone helping others who is being demonized for being an atheist.”
Maybe I’m wrong, but if atheists don’t believe in God, wouldn’t they also not believe in the Devil?
