A New Jersey billboard paid for by atheists depicted three wise men approaching Mary and Joseph and Baby Jesus in a manger. The billboard proclaimed, “You know it’s a myth! Celebrate reason.” The atheist group reportedly paid $20 grand to display the message through the Christmas season.
A spokesman for the atheist group said the billboard was not to condemn Christians for celebrating Christmas; it was to encourage atheists to stop going through the motions of celebrating Christmas, God bless ’em.
Some pastors will tell you they perform more crisis counseling during the Christmas season than at any other time of year.
