"Letting go of god" is worth a watch.

I hope FFRF have a bottomless pit of money if they are going to tackle the xtian right head on. Isn't there a cleverer/cheaper/sneakier way of doing opposing them?

If they are going to fight on the other guys' turf they need Brad Pit to do the next advert.

I second that, Sweeney did little for me in that and probably even less for a younger generation. Let's bring sexy back.

The point is made and the analogy is good.

Our first commercial? When do we get our own tv station? LOL.

A simple and clear message--well done, Julia.

Letting Go of God is quite good. Ms. Sweeney gave religions and quasi-religious philosophies a more-than-fair shot before becoming an atheist, and her story will speak to those who have an inclination toward spiritual journeys, and New Age thinking. She ultimately rejected all such nonsense, but her willingness to sincerely explore those sorts of ideas will particularly resonate with those atheists who may have found the word "atheist" difficult to embrace.

I would also like to recommend her blog. She posts updates only once per month, generally on our around the first of the month, but I make a point of reading it.

Click HERE to listen to what her intellectually challenged former Saturday Night Live cohort Victoria Jackson says about her...on the Trinity Broadcasting Network of course.

I support the cause, but watching the advert makes me cringe. The utter superficiality of American advertising suggests a gullible audience. Even the chavs here in Britain wouldn't swallow this kind of pap.

Great effort to get the message out. The more the better. The god industry floods the airwaves, it is time to chime in loud and clear.
