Some atheists really know to be a buzz-kill. In fact they want to ruin my cook-out and sunbathing time at the beach by preaching their non-religion to me.In Mitch Albom’s latest column, he describes how a group called American Atheists will be spending what I assume to be a considerable amount of money to tell the rest of us that we should be celebrating a God-less Fourth of July. Actually, the group is only flying banners on small planes in 26 states – including my home state of Michigan . The banners are reportedly to read “God-LESS America” or “Atheism is Patriotic.”
Though Albom disagrees with the group , his response is pretty moderate saying, “My sense is that most Americans are pretty tolerant of other faiths or even those who celebrate no faith — they just don’t want things shoved in their faces.”
I agree. So maybe I’ll one-up their banner flying by stopping by their houses with a tract on the Four Spiritual Laws.
