American Atheists will fly either “God-LESS America” or “Atheism is Patriotic” over 26 states on July 4th, celebrating our growth as a movement and our freedom to live without dogma and religion.
What's more, if you see a banner and you get a good picture of one, you can win a T-shirt.
Why are they only flying these banners in 26 states, instead of all 50?
American Atheists went to great lengths to get flights in all 50 states, representing the fact that atheism is the fastest growing segment in every state . The reality is that there is still a lot of bigotry out there and many companies refused to fly our banners. This just emphasizes the importance of doing this campaign! In fact, on 6/30 our count went from 27 to 26 because a company in North Carolina refused to fly the sign because, “I’m not going to Hell flying that sign!”
Derail: I've never understood the saying "never share a foxhole with an atheist", it should be "never share a foxhole with someone braver than you". Atheists, who don't believe in a life after this, would hide pretty good, instead of risking getting shot, non? ;)
