Fuck you, Mormon.org, for assaulting me while I send an e-card!!
I was gonna post various news clips and videos of the “outrage” over American Atheists’ billboard above the Lincoln Tunnel declaring, “You KNOW it’s a myth! This season, celebrate reason!”
I get it.
You’re Christian. You’ve got kids in the car. You’ve spent their lives lying to them about god, Jesus, Santa, the impartiality of the justice system, the idea that yes, they will grow up and realize every dream of theirs no matter how delusional those dreams might be, and those dickhead, douchebag American Atheists have the blistering, vitriolic AUDACITY to call bullshit bullshit and dare to let in-the-closet atheists know that they’re not alone and shouldn’t be scared about coming out to their friends and family.
How fucking DARE they??!!
But you know what, hypothetical Christian parent? You can look away. You can ignore it. Sure, it’s RIGHT THERE hanging for all to see, but you can pay it no mind.
Just a few minutes ago, I was putting together a holiday e-card and after getting through all the process of sending, I arrived at the “You’ve successfully sent your card” page. Get this. I didn’t know it was the “You’ve successfully sent your card” page. Know why?
Because this Flash-ad splashed all over the screen announcing how the woman in the ad is a project manager, a blogger, and she KNOWS that god answers prayers. She’s a Mormon. Brought to you by Mormon.org.
For a split second, I was afraid that I’d accidetnally stumbled onto a Mormon greeting card site. Imagine my delight when I realized it was nothing more than an in-your-face, presumptive, rude, bullshit ad for the Mormons!
It was literally in my face (I have to look closely at my screen)! Upon navigating to this page, it was the first thing I saw and the only thing I could see for a couple of seconds.
I know. It only lasted a couple of seconds. I can ignore it. But the religious can do the same thing with the billboard which does not land on their windshield and sit there for a few seconds while they’re trying to drive.
So to all you religious who have pissed and moaned about the “offensive” billboard and why those pesky atheists won’t leave enough alone, consider my e-card trauma and shut the fuck up.
