    Did you not read the story or the thread? The signs were put up by the atheists and some had messages expressing peace, love, etc. along with reason and other beliefs. Those signs were defaced by someone.

    In fact I did read the article and didn't see anything about atheists spreading the Christian message, or any message of substance of their own..

    Plus, this is another story about this.

    I can't find a pic of the sign mentioned at the end, but that sounds like a nice message to me.

    I don't think "Happy Solstice" represents peace and love, lol. That was the most cheerful sign they had up that I saw, in the article anyway.

    I don't think atheists need any specific holiday message to begin with. I just don't understand why some of them feel the need to bash it or ruin it for everyone else religious or not. I mean in reality the holidays have not been about the birth of Christ for awhile now. I mean it is more a commercial feel good thing now then a celebration of Christianity.

    I honestly don't understand why this is so difficult for some people to grasp

    It's a really simple concept.
    I believe half of the things I say and say half of the things I believe.

    I mean you don't think this...



    Co-opting a Christian emblem and making fun of it as well is a joyous Christmas message?

    I think it is great the atheist want to share their message of Peace. Christians do not have exclusive rights to it and should practice some peace love and understanding themesleves.

    are you suggesting that only christians are capable of peace and love? or spreading the message of peace and love? or own the concept?
    IIRC, hippies used the peace and love message a lot back in the 60's...

    Then why all the attacks? They could have just got the spots and put up things like the Holiday greetings sign. Instead they put up things insulting to anyone who is religious as well. So it goes both ways.
