 "Why believe in a god? Just be good for goodness' sake" Ad Campaign Launches on D.C. Buses

WASHINGTON, D.C. — You better watch out. There is a new combatant in the Christmas wars.

Ads proclaiming, "Why believe in a god? Just be good for goodness' sake," will appear on Washington, D.C., buses starting next week and running through December. The American Humanist Association unveiled the provocative $40,000 holiday ad campaign Tuesday.

In lifting lyrics from "Santa Claus is Coming to Town," the Washington-based group is wading into what has become a perennial debate over commercialism, religion in the public square and the meaning of Christmas.

"We are trying to reach our audience, and sometimes in order to reach an audience, everybody has to hear you," said Fred Edwords, spokesman for the humanist group.

I read about this... shameful. But this is the culture that 52% of Americans said last week that they wanted.

Be careful what you ask for.

Since it is ungodly to attack the buses physically, why do you not take this as a challenge to confront people nearby about this message? Just make a comment, get then engaged is a conversation about this issue of God and goodness, evil.. Hey! this could be an excellent springboard for some witnessing! just might be something God is allowing to happen to awaken people out of their lethargy and get to work.

If I see an interesting tag or bumper sticker on a car, I will make a comment to its owner if given a chance...

Come on now - off your seats and get to talking!

As the Great apostle Paul stated in the book of Acts, that when he entered Athens, he observed or saw that the city was "wholly given to Idolatry" (paraphrase)

It is beyond sad, it is a mockery to our creator and His saving grace. People act as though they got here and exist by "presto"....

It is in Him that we live and have our being....

This is what happens to so many who refuse to be thankful nor will they acknowledge their creator.

Ro 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Ro 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
Ro 1:23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Ro 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Ro 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
Ro 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
Ro 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
Ro 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Ro 1:29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
Ro 1:30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
Ro 1:31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
Ro 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
