Yes what a coincidence. Rather than simply closing the web page you apparently had no interest in viewing you decided instead to take the time and effort to join up to this prominent ATHEIST site, make inflammatory remarks comparing us to the KKK

I always have interest in what smart people are saying. I figured if someone went to so much trouble to force me to see this page I'd take a look.

RE: the KKK comment, I think I was fairly clear that the comparison is to the dynamic of the comment thread and its rhetoric, not to any individuals or your overall belief system. The rhetoric in this thread is conspiratorial, exhibits an irrational persecution complex, and is deeply hateful and contemptuous of a class of your fellows. Comparing it to a KKK meeting is probably an over-the-top way of calling it the bigoted group-think that it is, but too late to undo it. Sorry for being that provocative.

I think the only reason there is an article on this site about the defacing of the billboard is because there was another article just two stories lower from a day or two ago about the same billboard going up. Many people jokingly asked how long it would take before it was vandalised.

Reporting on it is fine. The persecution complex is as sad here, though, as when Donohue and his lot are engaging in it. Having some familiarity with Fresno I could have answered how long it would take to be vandalized: Virtually every billboard there is tagged within a few days of its being installed.

Your right it is just a stupid act of vandalism and I think most of the comments here reflect that attitude.

No. They don't. There are repeated references to a "them" and "they" whose self-delusion was threatened and so "they" reacted by defacing the billboard. And ugly and ridiculously stupid thoughts were put in the mouths of this "them" to explain why they would all do such a thing.
