I'm discussed by those people who think than need to post a sign about not beliving in God. Thats too bad. This world has become so corrupt that those of us who believe, sit by an allow this to happen. Stand up for your faith and comment on this. People this is the Bible belt.Our fathers that founded this great country would be ashamed, as I am.

Just like you have freedom of religion and to post your christian propaganda everywhere, we atheists have freedom from religion and our rights are to be equally respected. Just because someone doesn't cling to religion doesn't mean they're any different than you.

Actually scratch that, if you live in TX I probably wouldn't have freedom from religion. It's the most corrupt state there is.

By the way, the men who founded our nation said it was NOT a christian nation. I don't know why I keep hearing that

I'm not atheist but they have as much right to express their religion or lack of religion as any other American. A sign isn't going to hurt anybody. I don't agree with atheists but as Americans we have Freedom from Religious Persecution. So they have every right. All the sign will say is that atheists pick up the litter on that particular road. no big deal.

Hey, now what's this superiority sh*t? I just stood up for your right to do this and you cop "better than you" attitude? wtf? You athiests are no smarter than anybody else so keep the insults to a minimum please. See thats a problem with you Atheists, you think Christians are just dumb, when really we're all the same, some people just choose to believe in God. It has nothing to do with intelligence! so don't cop an attitude. You can have your precious "litter" sign.

Actually I am a Christian, have been for many years. I am also an American and I believe it is a country that believes in diversity. It these people want to clean the hwys I am all for it. If you think you are the only one who can do this job then get it on.

I disagree. Most atheists believe in science and reality.

I can not believe that the Atheists are doing this... I think its a disgrace to everything. Who wants to ride through a town and see some sign like that? Screw freedoms, this goes deeper than that.

Oh get over it. It's not like the sign is going to leap out in front of your car, drag you into the woods and beat the dogma out of you.

Every Christian in Fort God should tear pages out of the Bible and litter the ground that the atheists police with the good word.
That'll teach 'em.

They are doing it to get attention. Deep in their hearts, they know there is a God, but don't want to have anyone over them in the things they do.
They also want to shock others with the things they say. It doesn't shock God.
