‘WAR ON CHRISTMAS’ CONTINUES AS ATHEIST BANNER IS DESTROYED


Cranford, NJ—The small township of West Milford, NJ has become the scene of the latest attack on Atheists. Vandals allegedly destroyed a banner donated by American Atheists for the township holiday display after local City Councilman Joseph Smolinski appeared to advocate its theft. According to an article in the NorthJersey.com news source, Smolinski was adamant that the atheist banner be taken down in spite of any legal implications, adding that he was surprised no individual acted alone to remove it from municipal property. Smolinski said he, for one, would turn the other cheek if they did. Just days after this statement, the banner was destroyed.

Dave Silverman, President of American Atheists said, “Religious political leaders constantly accuse us of being immoral while they advocate theft and violence. These attacks show the depth of their hypocrisy. Why would the citizens of West Milford Township want someone this bigoted representing them? Our hope is that the official investigation into this event includes questioning the councilman.”

"You know it's a myth."
