American Atheists legal director Edwin Kagin offers some poetry about the recent “You Know It’s a Myth” atheist billboard (and a few other similar ones):
But let some atheists post one sign saying reason should prevail
Over the myth of Christmas, and you will hear the Fundies’ wail
That atheists are not respectful, that they should die, leave, or go to jail.

That they think Christians are the only ones protected under law.
It’s really incredible the reaction the billboards are getting from Christians. They don’t just disagree with it. They find them offensive! They want them taken down! They won’t drive buses if atheist ads are on them!
Then, they go to a church where a pastor tells them non-believers are going to hell and barely bat an eye…
