Atheists’ sign: ‘Make Christmas Great Again. Skip church!’
A national atheist group has parodied President-elect Donald Trump’s campaign slogan to encourage people not to attend church on Christmas.
American Atheists has unveiled billboards saying “Make Christmas Great Again. Skip church!” in Louisiana, Colorado and Georgia.
“Part of stirring the pot is getting that conversation going,” Nick Fish, national program director for American Atheists, told a CBS affiliate in Louisiana. “You don’t have to be religious, you don’t have to believe in God to be a good person. And we want to use humor, we want to use a little bit of people driving by these billboards and say, ‘Wait, what did that just say?’”
He added that Christians “do not have a monopoly on having a great meal and spending time” with loved ones over the holidays.
The atheist billboards will be on display throughout December.
