The American Atheists have a new billboard for the 2012 Christmas season displayed in Times Square this time. Last year they had one on a highway going into town.
What it looks like in situ:

Response: Not that offensive at all considering their past efforts in 2010 and 2011. Last year’s featured and equated Satan along with Jesus which was far more offensive to say the least. We support their right to publicize their views even if we disagree with them. We only wish that they would leave Christmas alone and try not to be quite so offensive.
Nevertheless, rather than ignoring the celebration completely, they are now suggesting that their members should enjoy the season with friends and family. However they are also promoting this as a good time to come out of the closet with their unbelief?
The billboard features a laughing Santa and a very sad crucified Christ. Not at all a fair representation of a Christian view of Christmas which features the birth of a divine child of hope that will change the world for the better for all time. *Top
