One nation, under Canada, infinitely divisible over even the trivial, with diminishing liberty and justice for all.
"Tell us your name. Oh now tell us what the sign says. Now tells us what your sign says. Oh that's just great." Way to treat your guest like a child.
They still think that talk about our "believes" is a attack. What a bunch of morons.
Wait a minute, you mean there was a group that put up a sign...then you put up a sign too! Holy shit! Did people like your sign? They did! Fucking amazing! Did you like your sign or their sign better? Yours! Wow! You really went after the big sign...how much money did you spend to make your point? Nothing? Oh thats just crazy! Was your sign as big as their sign? No? Oh sorry about that...we still think you are swell though! Come on FOX! Is there a program director running that train wreck or just a blindfolded guy with a dart board? What a serious joke you prejudice entertainment show!
Fox guy: "They take these signs just to rub people's noses in different things, and in this case how do you feel about that?"No fucking way he just said that... I get those louzy "Jesus saves" "Jesus loves you" flyers in my mail box every other week. Are the Jesus freaks rubbing my nose in different things? Maybe next time i should return the favor, and edit one of them "Darwin loves you" write some of my idea's, and return it to where it came from.Not to mention all those "sign's" in the form of crosses everywhere.
I would like to know when the schools were in the prayers?
That was the most one-sided "news story?" I've ever seen! Absolutely no mention of the Atheists point of view that the original pledge never mentions any god, or that government has no business endorsing religion.
<span>george ferguson</span><span></span> asked:<span>I would like to know when the schools were in the prayers?</span>"Oh Lord we thank thee for making 2x2=4, 2x3=6..."
Ok, I'm from NC. The guy said his restaurant was in Wilmington, but the news guy kept saying Raleigh. He also mentioned Billy Graham Pkwy, which is in Charlotte. All of which are in North Carolina. Furthermore, the Fox News idiots keep flashing the billboards from Florida?! There are plenty of pics of the ones in NC! You should need no further evidence of Fox's incompetence.
And another thing... Why does it always seem that only the idiots from North Carolina make it onto the news programs?! Take the schools out of the prayers?! Ugh. You'd never know that we have some damn fine institutions of higher learning here in the Tarheel state!
Yeah I'm from Charlotte and that is exactly what I was wondering? Fox News failed to actually show the billboard on Billy Graham PKWY, probably because religious thugs have already vandalized it by spray painting "under god" on it. Fox made this story so confusing!
The content of the original pledge is a factoid that all the news orgs seem to have forgotten about.
I remember when I was last in Florida at WDW a few years ago and a plane was sky writing religious messages in the sky. Sorry. But this just looked to me and most others as just dumb.
Maybe I should put together a statement to read in the math classes of high school students...
Wow.This is as bad as if we would point out their fallacious gathering of data, as it is containing fatal flaws in methodology. This is as if we would use this argument as a common christian myth on one of our popular atheist websites, or atheist media. Saying "Did God raise the sales by 9% over 8 consecutive days like Christian Fundamentalists say?", and then posting responses like, "Most likely, this would be a case of God's dysfunction. 8 consecutive days for a sales prices extrapolation into supernatural improbabilities, would undoubtedly be labeled a cherry pick. Or, a biased selection of the results. There are many possible explanations, that do not involve a supernatural being, but only lots of chance, and free room for evolution to take place. Evolution is what's important. Evolution is true. Believe us, we are EV-O-LU-TION-ISTTTTTTSSS. WE NEED MORE TIME. WE NEED MORE TIME. 13.75 BILLION YEARS. 13.75 BILLION YEARS.So, I conclusion:This disproves that God exists. God doesn't exist. The spiritual message of the day is: Christians don't deserve free speech! We're being oprressed and attacked everyone!"That would be how desperate we we seem, if we too degreaded to their own desperate level of illogic.

The one line that cracked me up for a while was: "This particular sign... is only a half a mile from my business... so I have to look at it every day."Seriously... that was one of the stupidest things I've ever heard one of these fundamentalist bigots say. Since when did the sign force you to look at it? Maybe I should start acting like a Christian and have no tolerance for the beliefs of others... and then I'll go complain to Anderson Cooper that I have to look at multiple church signs every day when I go drive to ANYWHERE.
Every time I visit my parents, I'm forced to look at a billboard that advertises a fundangelical church. It infringes on my constitutional rights to not be offended! It must be taken down!
Another riveting interview about atheist signs. Keep up the good work, Fox.
