The post isn't really about the ads, which are fairly non-controversial (Put up by the Coalition for Reason, all they say is A Million New Yorkers are Good Without God -- Are you?). It's about that, oh, how shall we phrase this? That miseducated, overpaid Fox-news Republican-Welfare recipient, Sean Hannity, who, having heard about these ads -- I'm guessing someone sent him a link -- hopped around on TV fulminating, "Can you imagine? What if some Christian group ran pro-God ads in the subways? Can you imagine the outrage?"
Apparently Sean has been living in a cave, I would respond, except, well, he and his ilk are always responding this way, aren't they? Almost everything they say makes it clear they don't live in the same reality as the rest of us. They live on planet Wing-Nut, Planet Xtian Loon-O-Sphere, where Obama is trying to take their guns, where there really is a War on Christmas (despite the huge decorations being put up in my public park as we speak, and the aisles and aisles full of Christmas crap that has been for sale in every store in Fuck Smith for a good week already), where White Christian Males are the truly persecuted people in America, where those huge signs on I-40 (COME ON OVER TO MY HOUSE BEFORE THE BIG GAME THIS SUNDAY -- GOD) do not exist and where, as PZ points out, the hundreds of different sects of Xtian advertising in the subways and every other public space -- why, not allowed! Just like no little Xtian boy or girl is allowed to pray over his school lunch or read the Bible at school! Because of the evil Lie-brals! Because we're the ones who hate! We're the ones who are truly intolerant! Not them!
