Hateful Bumper Sticker
Okay, so I was driving down the street a few weeks ago when I saw a bumper sticker that read, "God Doesn't Believe in Atheists." Well obviously I am not a Christian and don't know all of the teachings, but didn't Jesus preach to love thy enemy or something? Doesn't that song tell small children that Jesus loves them because the bible says so? And that phrase, "God is love." For a person trying to put out a message that people should become Christian, I think they achieved just the opposite. So it pissed me off...a lot. I do not have anything against the different faiths of the world, but I don't think anyone should be putting messages of hate on their cars and then be proud of them. Then in the bookstore I saw a book with the same title God Doesn't Believe in Atheists. So for Christians, to me, these people are being pretty anti-Christian. Sure I drive around with a Darwin Fish on my back bumper, but I am not going to proudly drive around with a sticker that preaches a message of hate and intolerance. So basically it is okay to preach hate, as long as it is against an atheist. Because I know there is freedom of speech and whatnot, but I am pretty sure that no body will really drive around advertising that they hate Muslims, or Jews, or African Americans.
