-A Christmas Battle Over the Buses

by Dr. D ~ December 6th, 2008

A couple of weeks ago we reported on atheist anti-God bus messages for the Christmas season in Washington DC.

Now Christians are fighting back with messages of their own:

“Why Believe? Because I created you and I love you, for goodness’ sake – GOD.”

The pro-God messages are being funded by The Center for Family Development, a Catholic-based non-profit group in Bethesda, Md.

A second Christian group, called Pennsylvania Friends of Christ, also plans on running a bus ad campaign on ten Metro buses for 4 weeks with the following positive Christmas message:

“Believe in God. Christ is Christmas for goodness’ sake”

Response: The battle over Christmas is heating up, but this year Christians are actually beginning to fight back. It’s about time. Many have sat on the sidelines while the Christmas season has slowly morphed into the ‘Winter Holiday’.

This year the war over Christmas has taken a decisive turn for the worse– as atheists placed anti-God messages on buses for Christmas and next to Nativity scenes–As a traditional Christmas play in the UK was canceled for a Muslim holiday instead. Many Christians have finally had enough.

Most Christians believe that all religious traditions should be honored and even the anti-religious should be accommodated in this increasingly pluralistic society– but not at the expense of eliminating and insulting Christian traditions that have been a part of this country from the very beginning.               *Top

    It’s true, Christianity has be treated unfairly in many venues. As a Christian though, I just don’t think an impersonal “battle” is the answer. Heck yes too many Christians have sat on the sidelines for too long. But the answer is to thoughtfully engage and befriend non-believers, not fight them in the public square.

    Note that the “Why Believe? Because I created you” ad is being funded entirely by donations. Contributions can be made at http://www.ibelievetoo.org.
