Mormon underwear is going to be making a big splash at the Democratic National Convention, and it won’t have anything to do with Romney [well, not entirely].
The American Atheists’ Center recently unveiled a billboard campaign “which exposes the foolishness of religion in the political landscape,” a press release states.
The billboards mock beliefs of different religions, including Mormonism, in order to make the case that Atheism is “simple reasonable.” They’ll be located in Charlotte, North Carolina, where the Democratic National Convention will be held in September of this year. Allegedly, the Atheists’ Center was turned down by all companies contacted in Tampa, Florida, where they were attempting to advertise during the Republican National Convention.
“The election of our leaders in the United States is one of the most important decisions that we as citizens make. Allowing our judgment to be clouded by sheer silliness is unacceptable. We want to show the people of our country the foolishness of mixing religion with politics,” David Silverman, President of the organization says. We’re going to have to agree with you on this one, David, but calling out religious beliefs the way you do in your billboards is probably not the best way to make your case. Either way, you have us talking about it [and Mormon underwear] so kudos to you.
