Bill Gates, Warren Buffett Star in New Atheism Campaign.

Bus posters via the Illini Secular Student Alliance. From their website:
"Religious groups have...duped Americans into believing that Christians are the major givers and that non-believers are selfish, angry loners unconcerned with the struggles of the less fortunate." They go on to say that the message of the campaign is to remind us that "the largest scale humanitarian aid projects in human history are now conducted by atheists."
A secondary unstated message seems to be: forsake God, become rich as Hell. (these are the only executions in the campaign). The Pope is making his Grinch face at these two heathens. Here's a round-up of previous religious marketing.

ISSO took the ad with Bill Gates off its site. Suppose he objected?

atheist? how hards is it to say that awfully rich people tend to be jewish?:-) is non-christian the same as atheist? is a money donation comparable to "good deeds thoughout your life", or small-scale, direct material or psychological charity various religions have been offering for thousands of years? is that even measurable anyhow? what an awkward campaign...

As the vice president of this group, I should mention that any changes to the images or information on our blog is purely a result of the fact that that the campaign is over. It only ran for the month of November. Also, to address Anonymous, the point of the campaign was to address the claim that no person can be good without religion to shape their morals. As such, it only really takes one counter-example to defeat that claim.

You forgot something on your list of hate. Stuck-up douchebag New Yorkers who think they're the shit because they live in a huge clusterfuck with other cock suckers who in turn suck each others cocks and discuss the proper way to travel across town in the quickest manner while finger-banging your young mail room boy who will do anything to suck your cock and be a stuck up New Yorker prick just like your pussy fart self. Go Fuck Yourself.
