Lord have mercy on this nation.
In a shocking display of arrogance, ads proclaiming, "Why believe in a god? Just be good for goodness' sake," will begin to appear on Washington, D.C., buses starting next week and running through December. The American Humanist Association unveiled the provocative $40,000 holiday ad campaign Tuesday.
Fred Edwords, a spokesman for the group, said the purpose isn't to argue that God doesn't exist or change minds about a deity, although "we are trying to plant a seed of rational thought and critical thinking and questioning in people's minds."
The group defines humanism as "a progressive philosophy of life that, without theism, affirms our responsibility to lead ethical lives of value to self and humanity."
Last month, the British Humanist Association caused a ruckus announcing a similar campaign on London buses with the message: "There's probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life."
Tom Wildmon of the American Family Association nails it:
"It's a stupid ad. How do we define 'good' if we don't believe in God? God in His word, the Bible, tells us what's 'good' and 'bad' and 'right' and 'wrong.' If we are each ourselves defining what's good, it's going to be a crazy world."
Exactly. There's nothing rational about "moral relativism" as there are two sides to everything in life as part of the natural order of things. I'd like the humanists to comment on that for me.
In the meantime, let's pray that God opens their eyes to the real truth.
