Re: [skeptics-137] ARTICLE FROM ALTERNET

Well, I do like this pope, and agree with Werleman on that, however, I have mixed feelings about the atheist billboards. 

After all, Werleman has also written things like "To offer your life in servitude of an unseen sky-god based on the writings included in a book you have never read, seems to me to be the far limit of irrationality." and "It becomes obvious then, that the Bible is . . . the often incoherent rants of a few violent, self-serving, nomadic Middle Eastern yokels" (God Hates You, Hate Him Back, 2010). 

It seems that Werleman is suggesting that it's OK to write whatever you want, but it's bad PR to put it on a billboard.

I do agree with his point about teaming up with people of faith to fight capitalism-on-steroids.
