-For Christmas: An Atheist Ba HumBug on Buses?

Washington D.C.: The American Humanist Association announced plans this week to plaster ads over 200 buses bearing its “godless holiday” message:

“Why believe in a god? Just be good for goodness’ sake”

The atheist group plans to run the ads through December. The move comes one month after the British Humanist Association said it will run ads on London buses in January declaring: “There’s probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life,” on London buses in January.

According to AHA executive director Roy Speckhardt, the group is sponsoring the ads to get across a message:

“Humanists have always understood that you don’t need a god to be good. So that’s the point we’re making with this advertising campaign. Morality doesn’t come from religion. It’s a set of values embraced by individuals and society based on empathy, fairness, and experience.”

Response:  Another indication that the ‘culture wars’ are heating up. The whole point of Christmas is that God has sent his Son into the World, that the world might be saved.

It is a celebration for Christians, that God came down in our midst and left us his Spirit to help us reach out to others in good will with the promise that one day there will be peace on earth. We give gifts to others in order to celebrate God’s gift to us–the ultimate reminder of something and someone greater and beyond ourselves.

There has been a concerted effort over the last few years to get Christ and religion out of the public square during the Christmas season and replace it with a ‘winter holiday’ instead. The AHA is an example of the ultimate ‘grinch’ that is trying to steal away the Christmas holiday and spirit of goodwill for their own crass purposes and promotion.            *Top
