Group Launches “Godless” Christmas Campaign

By Susan Brinkmann, OCDS Staff Writer The annual anti-Christmas campaigns are underway. In preparation for the 2008 Christmas season, the American Humanist Association (AHA) is plastering advertisements questioning the existence of God all over metro buses Washington, DC. Called the “Godless Holiday Campaign,” the advertisements say: “Why believe in a god? Just be good for goodness’ sake.” The ad features a woman dressed in a Santa suit.   The AHA is the same organization that placed billboards in major cities this year that said: “Don’t believe in God? You are not alone.” According to Liberty Counsel, a legal organization dedicated to preserving traditional values, their latest ad campaign will begin next week and run through December. “It is the ultimate ‘grinch’ to suggest there is no God during a holiday where millions of people around the world celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. It is insensitive and mean,” said Mathew D. Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. “It is wrong to belittle Jews for celebrating Hanukkah during the holiday season, and it is wrong to offend all religions during Christmas. Christmas is a time of joy and hope, not a time for hate. Why believe in God? Because Santa is not the only one coming to town.” Liberty Counsel offers educational legal materials to educate government officials, teachers, parents, students, employees and others about why it is perfectly legal to celebrate Christmas.
