St. Paul Saints baseball team to become 'Mr. Paul Aints' on atheist night

There are 2 comments on the www.christiancentury.org story from Aug 14, 2012, titled St. Paul Saints baseball team to become 'Mr. Paul Aints' on atheist night. In it, www.christiancentury.org reports that:

Paul Saints, a Minnesota minor league baseball team, will become the "Mr. Paul Aints" in a game sponsored by a local atheist group.

Dubbed "A Night of Unbelievable Fun," the Aug. 10 game against the Amarillo Sox will include an auction of players' special "Aints" jerseys, fireworks and a ceremonial first pitch by David Silverman, president of American Atheists.

The letter "S" in all Saints signs and logos around the stadium will be covered, and there are planned references to Big Foot, UFOs and other targets of the skeptical community, team officials said.

"We want to show that atheists can have fun," said August Berkshire, president of Minnesota Atheists, which is sponsoring the event with American Atheists a day before its regional conference in downtown St. Paul.

To highlight just a few. Possibly quite a lot of ‘cross-pollination’?

"We believe too, as everybody understands, that without priests you have no eucharist, and without eucharist you have no church.
