LAKELAND, Fla. – A group of atheists in Florida spent part of their weekend washing away a blessing placed upon a local highway by a religious group.
Armed with brooms, mops and “unholy water,” the atheists gathered Saturday to symbolically clean up holy oil that Polk Under Prayer put down on Highway 98 near the Pasco-Polk county line last year, Bay News 9 reported.
“We come in peace,” Humanists of Florida director Mark Palmer announced before he and members of other atheist organizations launched their cleanup. “Now that’s normally what aliens say when they visit a new planet, but we’re not aliens, we’re atheists!”
According to the report, Palmer said Polk Under Prayer’s blessing “sends a very bad signal to everyone in Polk County, and [anyone] who travels through Polk County who doesn’t happen to be Christian.”
The unblessing project, he explained, was “not about atheist rights” but about “welcoming everybody into Polk County.” [Source]
I am glad I got out of atheism when the going was good. This is inline with the idiotic unbaptism using hair drivers. So let me get this straight. You claim to live by pure reason and all religion is just nonsense yet you take time to undo what you consider pure nonsense with some more pure nonsense.
Now if they really wanted to undo the effects of Christianity than they sure work to remove all hospitals and universities which all got their start under Catholic auspices. The development of science has got to go also since the Church was indeed a midwife to science that was stillborn under all other cultures. Though atheistic cultures do create things such as the Guillotine and the Gulags and are able to kill many more people than bad Catholics ever did in history.
