My Take - Atheist Billboard

A billboard recently went up in Huntsville that's got quite a few people angry. It promotes an upcoming meeting of American Atheists and has a rather harsh message for the religious community. We've heard from many viewers who were insulted by the sign's language and wanted to do something about it. Frankly, I don't agree with the message, either. But I think that by lashing out at the man behind the billboard, you're playing right into his hands. Because nothing bothers an agitator more than being ignored. Yelling at him just feeds his need for attention. If you really want to do something about it, reach out to the people around you and live like you believe instead of talking about what you believe. People are far more influenced by what you do than by what you say and that's the thing to keep in mind when it comes to the angry man with the angry billboard. Oh, and you might want to pray for him, too. I'm Vanessa Oubre and that's my take. What's yours?
