AMERICAN ATHEISTS UNVEIL BILLBOARDS AIMED AT CHRISTIANITY AND MORMONISM IN CITY HOSTING DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION
Cranford, NJ – At a press conference today at the American Atheists’ Center, David Silverman, president of American Atheists, unveiled the organization’s newest billboard campaign, which exposes the foolishness of religion in the political landscape. The billboards feature assertions from Christianity and Mormonism that, according to American Atheists, have no place in politics.
The billboards will be located in Charlotte, NC, where the Democratic National Convention will be held, September 3 – 6, 2012. All companies contacted in Tampa, Florida, where the Republican National Convention will be held, refused to display the billboard focusing on Mormonism.
Mr. Silverman said, “The election of our leaders in the United States is one of the most important decisions that we as citizens make. Allowing our judgment to be clouded by sheer silliness is unacceptable. We want to show the people of our country the foolishness of mixing religion with politics.”
Teresa MacBain, Public Relations Director stated, “Our great country was founded on the secular ideals of the Constitution. Allowing religion to be the litmus test of our candidates undermines the very core of our freedoms.” Ms. MacBain continued, “Article VI of the Constitution states, ‘no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification’ for those desiring public office. How can we disregard our governing principles so blatantly?”
