Honk if you believe in Science….

Well, not really…

but here’s a great post by Stellar1 at de-conversion that asks, “What if I behaved toward Christians like they behave towards me?”

Here’s my favorite example of how we can be more Chrstian-like. Check out the entire post for more ideas.

The other day I was driving in my car past a very crowded intersection when I noticed a group of young people with signs. Since it caught my attention, I looked closer and noticed the signs had pictures of mutilated foetuses – and me on the way to lunch.

One sign said, “Honk if you believe in life.” That sign caused me to wonder what those same people would think if I gathered a group and stood on that corner with signs depicting rape and poverty and signs saying, “Honk if you believe in choice.”

  1. Nah!

    You forgot about the “christmas” vs “holidays” thing? Also, there was a post in PZ’s blog (can’t locate it) about a winter solstice sign that caused a lot of discomfort in the (xian) community where it was.

    That is the whole problem I have about religion, that they can’t live with it – they *must* drag others into it!

  2. As someone or other once said, “”Christianity says to ‘witness’. It does not say to annoy possible converts to the point of making them your enemy.”

  3. EdSG, that’s the story – Thanks!

    CrimsonBeard, unfortunately, Christianity doesn’t say a lot of things! :P

  4. The thing about science is that it really doesn’t matter if one believes in it or not. It is there regardless and it works better than any other method we’ve developed yet for learning about our world. If only those who prefer religion over science would understand this!

  5. That would be cool,

    (Honk if you believe in choice).

    But they wouldn’t get it.

    I would say, make a sign that says “I AM SATAN, on one side and “I’M WITH STUPID” (complete with appropriate arrow) on the other and stand next to them and keep flipping it.

    I know it’s an oldy but it’s a goody as well.


    PS: Please don’t do this unless you have lot’s of friends near by or have had about Six months worth of boxing lessons.

    The followers of Christ don’t turn the other cheek unless they think you’ll kick their ass.

    Sad but true.

    I”m just sayin’,
