Taggers for Christ


This is old news but, given my earlier post entiled "Threeper versus Threeper", it is relevent.


Chrissy Saterfield over at World Net Daily experienced journalistic orgasms over the vandalism of a billboard right before the "Fourth of July weekend" (her words, I call it "Independence Day").


Just when I start believing there is no hope for our country I get a little reminder from my God that all is not lost. It was reported June 29 that a billboard sign sponsored by a North Carolina atheist organization had been vandalized. The ad reads, "One Nation Indivisible." It seems someone didn't think the sign was an accurate depiction of our Pledge of Allegiance, so the vandals inserted "Under God" with spray paint – and I couldn't be more relieved. It's nice to know that I am not alone in my beliefs and that some people are still willing to stand on the right side of truth.
Of course she inserts the obligatory disclaimer that she would never encourage such a thing (Nudge, nudge. Wink, wink).
Never would I encourage vandalism, but in this case I think I'll let it slide. Atheists have been vandalizing my beliefs for years, so it's about time the shoe was on the other foot.
If her beliefs are so fragile that a few words are the equivalent to vandalism then the logical side of Ms. Saterfield must be tempted to check her premises. Fortunately for the survival of Christendom, her belief system insulates her from the temptation of thinking.

In the final analysis, there is no Commandment against vandalism I guess there is no reason for Ms. Saterfield to condemn the actions of her co-religionist.
My dose of honesty this week: I am not happy that vandalism seems to be the only way to get an atheist's attention. I'm happy that I can count on other Christians to stand up for themselves and for Christians everywhere. It gives me hope.

OTOH, do I need to care what Chrissy Saterfield thinks? She seem to do it very rarely.

Onward Christian taggers, skulking in the night.
With your holy spray paint those billboard you will smite.
The royal Master Krylon, leads against the foe;
forward into battle see God's graffiti go!

  1. Who the hell cares if two words are in or out of the pledge?

    What the hell does the wording of a pledge matter when it is basically wholly invalid due to the destruction of "the Republic for which it stands". I can imagine many more worthwhile causes for Christians than words in the pledge of allegiance to an earthly government. Reminds me of the silly fight over the ten commandments statue. Does not the government have the right to display what it wishes on its own property? If the government takes down the ten commandments, SO WHAT??? If they insist you do so on your property, well then, there is the problem.

    Christians, the supposedly eternally minded ones, get so wrapped up on trivialities here. Children are starving all over the world, and they raise money for legal fights over a statue.

    This nation is being destroyed bit by bit, and we all fight over two words in the pledge rather than the people rendering the pledge invalid through the destruction of the Republic.

    Turn your spraycans on the REAL enemies of this nation, people.

  2. In my last post, I said "an earthly government". I meant "an earthly nation".
