I'm all for atheist adopting a road. It's not causing harm to anybody and they have as much right to as any Christian group. Where's the problem here? Why would anyone care? You have you beliefs and they have theirs. Trash get's picked up. Looks like a win-win to me!

Why would you look in the bible for that quote??
First off, it is obviously common sense that it isn't in the bible.
Secondly, God is God.. I mean, he didn't say the "christian" god. Or did I miss that one?

For atheists God is love and humanity, as opposed to being an abstract or mythological concept catering to one's personal desires and whims while assuring a certain social prestige through false piety.

It's certainly no surprise that atheists are committing themselves to serving public interests. Jonesboro applauds their selfless gesture.

It demonstrates their integrity - atheists doing good works without some deity looking over their shoulder, adding brownie points for the big final send-off to Never-Never Land.

To me, moral acts committed by atheists mean a great deal more than those committed by Christians. For atheists, such acts are done because they are the right thing and benefit everyone. For Christians, such acts are done to avoid punishment.

As Christians, we are taught NOT to judge. So, if an Atheist group wants to adopt part of the highway, then more power to them. Whatever motives they may have for doing it are not relevant. I will admit, when I saw the sign, it threw me for a moment, but they have the choice to believe in whatever they choose. That's why God blessed America!!

I don't think they actually call it church. They do group together because it is human nature to be drawn toward people who believe like you do. Those tend to be the folks you find a support system in. I don't find that weird at all.

They don't have a "church". They have a group of like-minded people with similar interests. How is that weird? Because they don't believe in God? Good grief.

or as i have found the christians in my life that do something nice in the name of jesus and christianity then turn around and tell everyone"hey look what i did for so and so" i stopped trusting and believing anything a christian how to tell me a long time ago for the way they treated me behind my back versus how they treated me to my face.
