    Arson targets atheist anti-Christmas billboard

    Arson targets atheist anti-Christmas billboard - My9 New Jersey

    PITMAN, N.J. (AP) — Police say someone tried to torch a billboard in New Jersey that was put up by atheists to protest a "Keep Christ in Christmas" banner.

    The billboard proclaims "Keep Saturn in Saturnalia," a reference to an ancient celebration of the Roman god of agriculture. It's paid for by the Madison, Wis.-based Freedom from Religion Foundation.

    Authorities say it was torched Tuesday night by two unidentified men who fled in a pickup truck.

    The sign didn't burn, but its steel support beams were charred.
    Wrong thing to do.

    What ever happened to just dumping paint on the billboard? Burning it is so.... not smart.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    As Jesus said, "If someone puts up a sign you disagree with, burn the mother****er down."

    Apparently they do, because we've had huge numbers of them over here for a long period of time, and people pay to advertise on them.
