We've all seen them, billboards preaching an "Eternity In Hell" and "God is Watching!" Are you tired of getting preached at on your way to work? So are we! We are now ready to bring these messages (supported by actual scripture) to the masses and fight fire with fire - roadside billboards next to busy roads in very Christian cities across America.
With over 50% of professing Christians unable to even name the four Gospels, many will be surprised to learn that Jesus teaches his disciples to that their families and that the New Testament teaches women to be silent.
Well, we can rent billboards, too! It's time to preach back to the preachers!
Preaching Back At You: Billboard Campaign
Tired of being preached at on your way to work? So are we! It's time to preach back with colorful messages of reason and logic. We can put up billboards, too!
I'm pleased to note there is one for "God Hates Figs".
The unicorn one is fantastic, but will never ever actually get put up. I wonder how whitewashed the final ones that they manage to put up will be, or if they are able to put up any at all.
I want to see some proposals for Numbers 31:18.
I read the whole of Numbers 31, and does it seem like it's describing defenses against biological warfare? They seem awfully worried about infection of some kind - quarantining returning soldiers, autoclaving metal equipment, etc. (I wonder if the Water of Cleansing is distilled alcohol.)
Seems plausible, especially in light of the passages describing what could've been an early use of biological warfare to break the Assyrian siege of Jerusalem; before Sennacherib's army arrived, the Israelites first blocked the springs outside the city, then dug a half-kilometer tunnel to bring fresh water into the city, and on the night after the army arrived, "...the angel of the Lord went out and put to death a hundred and eighty-five thousand in the Assyrian camp." (2 Kings 19:35)
Of course, it's hard to draw any kind of conclusion from an oral tradition whose written version has been steadily corrupted over a period of millennia, but if we're to take enough of the story at face value to assume that the Assyrian army actually was broken in short order before the walls of Jerusalem, then it certainly seems plausible that water contaminated with something virulent and nasty could've been the means by which that was done. Similarly, a culture with knowledge of how to carry out such an attack could be presumed also to have knowledge of how to defend against it; otherwise, they'd be quite likely to wipe themselves out with their own weapons, pathogens generally not being very particular about their choice of infectees.
Well, trivially, just take a dump down river from where you collect your own drinking water. Multiply this by 10,000 soldiers, animals, and camp followers and you are golden.
Oh, for God's sake.
