Atheists Post Billboards Urging People To Skip Church on Christmas (VIDEO)
An atheist group has posted billboards in Colorado urging people to skip church on Christmas. They claim that they’re trying to point out that Christmas is for everyone but if that’s true, why didn’t they just say that?

Controversial billboards along I-25
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — There were new billboards up along Interstate 25 that caught the eyes of drivers Monday.
The billboards were put up by the American Atheists.
They say, “Go ahead and skip church! Just be good for goodness sake. Happy holidays!”
The message caused a stir for some.
“I think it’s a little offensive. When I first saw it I thought ‘what did they mean by that?’” said Alexis Esselman.
The American Atheists insist the signs aren’t an attack on Christmas.
“We’re trying to be inclusive of everyone in Christmas and saying that anyone can celebrate it. It shouldn’t be viewed strictly as a Christian holiday,” said American Atheists spokesman Randy Gotovich.
Here’s a video report:
Again, if they wanted to send a message of inclusiveness, why do the billboards specifically urge people to skip church? It sounds like that was their main message.
