-Atheists Offer to Exchange Porn for Bibles on Texas Campus

An atheist student group set up a booth on a Texas university campus offering to exchange pornography for Bibles and other religious materials including Qurans.

According to Kyle Bush, the president of the student group- Atheist Agenda:

"The point is not to hand out porn, but rather the primary purpose is to get people to come talk to us so we can get our message out. We want to spread atheism and bring it more to the spotlight. We offer another alternative to people who might not fit in anywhere else."

The atheist group collected five Bibles, one Encyclopedia of Islam, and one Quran in exchange for porn during the 2 day event. Not exactly a raging success. They did create a little bit of attention for their cause but nothing like their first exchange in 2008 that gained international press.

Interestingly 30 yards away a Christian student group sang praise songs and bathed the event in Prayer.

Response: Events like this somewhat backfire on atheist groups. Rather than promoting their ideas in a forum of debate, events like this which ridicule the faith of others merely create attention but not necessarily good attention.

Do the atheists in this group really want to give the impression that they support porn as something that is good for society? Probably not. Do they really believe that porn is better than religion for our culture? Maybe, maybe not.

However, we do support their right to free speech and also the right of the Christian group nearby to sing and pray on campus. Hopefully the current rage on University campuses to regulate student leadership (called ‘anti-discrimination’) does not reach all the campuses across America and student groups remain free to express their views everywhere, including conservative non-PC Christian groups and even atheist groups which I obviously do not support.            *Top

    Here is a contrast, Dr. D — An atheist group conducts an anti-Christian event and is not harassed by public officials. Christians sing and pray nearby, but do nothing to stop the atheists.

    Meanwhile, this is going on:

    An evangelical attempting to peacefully pass out Bibles at an homosexual event has been arrested, has faced legal challenges from public officials, and harassment and opposition from the homosexuals.

    The contrast is remarkable.

    Thanks Brian, a real contrast indeed. Also reminds me of the Christian folks that keep on getting attacked and arrested in Dearborn, Michigan at the Muslim festival. No freedom of religion on those sharia guarded American streets.
