A new war has broken out in New Mexico , United States. A Billboard has sparked furious protests and anger among the Christian population. The billboard is filled with hate towards Christmas and Christians.
The Billboard advocates that ‘Church is all fake’ and instead of calling Christmas as Christmas they have labelled it as happy holidays. The billboard is put up by Atheist group to mock Christmas and Christian beliefs.
According to Krqe some resident , it’s terrible because Christmas is almost here for one thing and that’s not the way I wish to celebrate the holidays,” said Connie Lindsay.
“Just skip church it’s all fake news. Wow. I am a Catholic,” said Edward Ray
According to Atheist head of society Albuquerque where the billboard is put up We want to go places where we think the conversation just needs to be poked a little bit. Where there’s a community out there for folks who are leaving religion and Albuquerque has that,” said Fish.
Fish Further says this billboard is to make people whose beliefs do not align with the Christian celebration of Christmas feel included.
“Christianity or any other religion doesn’t have a monopoly on December. So, our message here is, however, you want to celebrate it go ahead and do that,” said Fish.
Most people KRQE News 13 spoke to weren’t mad. They were sad and shocked. However, most people said AA has the right to put up whatever billboard they want, even if they don’t agree with it.
“I think inclusion is important. It’s definitely important. But, to that degree, I don’t know if that’s necessary. It’s just not in my belief system,” said Greg Aguilar.
AA says the billboard will be up until the end of December.
The Albuquerque billboard was the first to go up. Later this week, similar billboards will go up in Texas and Oklahoma.
