A billboard in Times Square is igniting controversy and mixed feelings, especially among Christians.
Sponsored by the secular group, American Atheists, the billboard reads “Keep the Merry!” next to a picture of Santa Claus and “Dump the Myth!” next to a picture of Jesus Christ. David Silverman, president of the American Atheists, told Fox News:
“Most Christians are really atheists who feel trapped in their family’s religion. They need not be Christian to enjoy the holiday season.”
The billboard will remain until January 10.
What are your thoughts? Is this disrespectful to Christians or should Atheists be able to freely express their views?
