Love letters from hell

23 Nov

Our godless billboards went up aroundColumbiayesterday and we’ve been getting some amazing hate mail. My friend over at Ashley F. Miller did a great write up on some of the responses that we’ve been getting. I highly recommend you check that out here. As for me, I want to share with you a few of my favorites. I have made no edits (except personal info) to the responses. They are copied as they were written. So without further ado, here is a delicious sampling of the hate mail we’ve been getting. (EDIT: I have numbered each comment in order to distinguish between commenters. )

1. TO COLUMBIACOR ORG

THATS OK TO NOT BELIEVE IN GOD. ITS NOT FOR EVERYONE.

SINCE THE CONSTITUTION REMOVES RELIGIOUS STATUES, WHY SHOULD YOU BE ABLE TO PLACE A SIGN OF NONE RELIGION

IF YOU WANT PROOF THAT THERE IS A GOD.

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS VISIT ME

More crazy:

2. That true God. I was surprise why to say can’t believe God?! They people already know God is true in the Heaven. I believe GOD in Heaven! I never say that unbeliever God before. Should to be change post Believe God, and not say Godless period!

3. What does the year 2011 mean?….. It means the age of JESUS. And he is coming back. Believe it or not.

4. Kewl! Just as it was written many years ago. That only means one thing! Come Quickly My Lord and My God!

GO TO HELL!!!1 (God is love)

5. There are only two races in this world, the christian and non-christian. There is coming a day very soon that those who don’t believe there is A God will open their eyes in **** and wish that they would have believed. Then it will be to late. God is Love1

6. Not alone? You will be soon!

7. For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things. (Romans 1:18-23 ESV)

8. Well its simple,believe in god or go to hell!

9. To all you atheist and “agnostics”. Believe or dont believe in God, but the day you die, you WILL come face to face with GOD and you’ll have to explain to God why you didnt believe in him. You are saved by God’s grace..not Walmart’s, Target or the Almighty Dollar. There is NO such thing as “evolution” either. If things have changed, it’s God’s will..not a happen so. So go ahead and do what you all do, but as said, you will find out the day you die. Good luck on that.

10. I would much rather live my life believing that there is one true God and find out later that there isn’t, than to live my life as if there isn’t, only to find out later that there is! I guess we’ll all find out for ourselves on judgement day. As for me, I know in my heart that Jesus died for my salvation and for the salvation of all sinners, and that one day I’ll join Him in heaven with the rest of the believers. Heaven or Hell is your choice… I’ll take the high road, thank you…

11. WIS/TV… Fred Edwords, national director of the United Coalition of Reason, said “Such non-theists sometimes don’t realize there’s a community for them.” /////////////////////////////​/////////////////////////////​////////////////// In a related story—it’s reasonable to say that what the Coalition doesn’t know, as well Is…if they stay their course—they’ll find their community—a very hot place known as…**** !!!

12. The billboard should read “Don’t believe in God? You WILL be alone one day!!!!”

13. **** is getting HOTTER as we speak! For those who don’t want to believe, that is your choice, but don’t beg for mercy on your day of Judgement!

14. People of all religious beliefs and backgrounds, remember one thing please. When it’s all over and you find that you were wrong, it’s TOO late then to make a change. So, be sure that what or who you believe in or don’t believe in is the right way to go, cause you only get one shot. I know where I’m going. Maybe I’ll see you there. If not, say hello to Hitler and Bin Laden for me, OK!

15. They might as well spend all their money on silly billboards…they can take it (to ****) with them….

16. I THINK WE SHOULD PUT UP A SIGN RIGHT NEXT TO THAT ONE THAT SAYS “GOING TO ****? YOU ARE NOT ALONE” I WOULD DONATE. THE ONLY REASONUSCHRISTIANS “PUSH” OUR BELIEFS ON ANYONE IS BECAUSE WE READ IN OUR BIBLES THAT JESUS CHRIST COMMANDS WE SHARE THE NEWS “SO THAT NONE MAY PERISH”. I SHARE JESUS BECAUSE I GENUINELY FEEL SORRY FOR THOSE THAT DO NOT KNOW HIM. TO KNOW JESUS IS TO KNOW PEACE

17. No, if you do not believe in God you are not alone. But you soon will be.

18. choose this day whom you will serve…you cant serve both…so I quess it would go like this,,,serve God or go to hell….Revelaton 20:10 where the devil,his angels, and the false prophet go. Nite all.

I am offended that you exist!

19. I just want to let you know I am very offended about your billboards. Why can you all put this up and we cannot have billboards with God’s name in it for the good? I really feel this is not fair. Just remember God is watching you.

20. This article made me sick and so do half of you posters. That’s what is wrong with the world today. You should be ashamed. I choose to praise God and if you choose not to, then that is your problem.

21. My heart just breaks, as I read this article I cried. What is this world coming to? May all christians not react in a negative way. Just pray for these non believers and spread God’s word and love with your neighbors, friends, family, and everyone you come in contact with..You never know who doesnt know the True Lord and Savior.

22. Oh my goodness. Ok – YES they are indeed BOTH the holiest of seasons. Good gravy – I’m glad you’re posting and showing everyone how ridiculous you are.

This is a CHRISTIAN COUNTRY!!!

23. This country was founded on Christian beliefs and we are One Nation Under God. God brought us here and He can take us away whenever He chooses. People are free to believe how they choose, but here inAmerica, and some other countries as well, we believe in God. All the evil you see is from Satan. God is love and the highest power in the world. God blessAmericaand God bless us all. I am very thankful for all the blessings God bestows on me and my family daily. My question is this…when something bad starts happening, do you pray…I do. Prayer is powerful and I love Godwith all my heart and I am thankful He is in my life and my heart.

24. “But he whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my father who is in heaven” Matt 10:33. I believe in God, and I believe that there are plenty of people who use atheist to do whatever they want without conscience. I actually take offense to this billboard, this country was founded on Christian beliefs and those same laws that our forefathers used to create this country are the same laws used to take our beliefs from us. If you don’t respect our beliefs please explore countries that support yours.

I KNOW GOD EXISTS!

25. First of all I am a believer and I do believe in God and in satan. Well it has been said in the Bible, which I know was written by man, and passed down through the ages that satan is preparing his army for when the end of the earth comes, and yes it will end. This is satans way of getting into your mind if you let him, but if you have your mind stayed on Jesus they can flash their signs until the end of time to no avail. The $7000 that the signs cost could have been used to help feed the hungry but its their money so they can use it however they choose too. I love everybody but I do not have to like your beliefs .If you don’t believe there is something else besides you try holding your breath until YOU get ready to breathe. You can’t do it. Something MAKES you breath again, just like when you’re dead. The drs. can pump air into you ALL day long, but you will never breathe again, because that power says your existance here is over. JUST MY OPINION AND YES I’M FIGHTING ON GODS SIDE.

26. King James Bible For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God. For this is God’s word not mine. But I beleive there is a God and I know I don’t stand alone.

27. I don’t know about anyone else but I am a Christan I love the Lord God and his son Jesus who died for my sins everyone has a right to believe what they want and God give them this free will to decide I think that these bill boards are wrong they go against every thing I know is right. I know God is very real and I know he sent his son Jesus Christ to die for my sins and yours all you have to ask him to for forgiveness these bill boards give these people a chance to say my God is not real well I am using it to also let every know that he is very real and very alive and he is coming back for his children soon I am so thankful he saved me from hell.

28. For those who dont believe will be the ones who when the time comes will be demanding to be let into theArkwhen the world does come to an end. For the way of life is through Jesus Christ and for the way to Death is those who choose not to believe. He exists and existed and he will come back to judge the living and the dead. How he will come back is written in the bible. I know that God and Jesus are real. I have survived a lot of things that should have killed me along time ago. I been through a ton of car accidents, been hit in the head by a softball, had illnesses that should have done me in but because I believe in God and Jesus they both make sure I am protected, provided for and guided to do what is right. I hear God in everything I do. I have seen signs of God watching seen signs of his creations and felt his presence when ever things are dark and hard.

29. we have our god and he know’s everything he’s great he gives us life and nature everyday praise our god

30. Thank God that I do believe in Him! Merry CHRISTmas! GLORY to GOD in the highest and on earth, peace, goodwill toward men.

31. I still celebrate the holidays because of the One and Only!! I still believe in God and He is the Reason for My Seasons.. God BlessAmerica…

Atheists are fools

32. The billboard is fine for non-believers.They can all celebrate their atheist holiday..April fools day.

33. THIS IS STUPID AND ITS FROM SATAN AN THEY WANT US TO SEE THIS BULL CRAP…THEY CAN HAVE GAY PARTYS THEY CAN HAVE SINFULL STUFF TO HURT JESUS…BUT WHEN WE PUT SOMETHING ABOUT A GAY OR OF THE BIBEL ON A BILLBOARD THEY TAKE IT OFF…BUT WHO EVER DID THAT I HOPE GOD HAVE MERCY ON YOU FOOLISH GODLESS PEOPLE…IF GODS NOT REAL HOW DO YOU WAKE UP IF MY GODS NOT REAL HOW DO YOU HAVE LIFE IF GODS NOT REAL HOW EVERY TIME WE GET IN A TRAP AN THE FIRST THING WE SAY IS JESUS CHRIST…WAKE UP AN SMELL THE AIR…MY GOD IS SENDING YOU WARNINGS…there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

34. Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time. (I Timothy 2:5-6)Mark 1:15 …The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel…Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to God…Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4…J-E-S-U-S HE IS MORE POWERFUL THEN THE WHOLE US HE IS…CANT DO HIM LIKE JUDAS DID CUS IF I DID THAT WOULD BE WHAT FOOLISH IS…YUNG

35. Nothing times nobody equals everything. This is the atheist thesis of utter nonsense. That there is a creation implies a creator. How this creator is manifest is a matter of faith

36. just dont pay thesecolumbiacor fools any attention. they are looking for something but dont know what.

37. The Columbia Coalition of Reason is made up of four Midlands groups: the Freethought Society of the Midlands, Secular Humanists of South Carolina Midlands, Pastafarians at the University of South Carolina and Camp Quest South Carolina…who all have reprobated minds…carry on fools…as the Bible says the man that says God does not exist is the greatest fool of all. God help you all.

This is the work of SATAN!!!

38. Why is it important that you tell the world you don’t believe? This is the work of Satan, you better believe it. I am sadden by this display.

39. It is our Christrian duty to witness to others and teach them that there IS a GOD, and he will return to collect us VERY SOON! Satan is having a field day on this earth collecting the non-believers, so pray for them. Heaven awaits those who walk in blind faith. May God’s peace and grace go with you always!

This is reverse discrimination!

40. You know, I find it appalling that this advertisement is being defended by those who criticize religious beliefs of others because of a differing opinion. You want to have your right to say you do not believe, yet you want to criticize a Church for advertising; or you belittle those who do believe by posting some inane top 11 list of how to spot a Christian. It is nothing more than reverse discrimination. I also find it appalling that the groups who want to “advertise” atheism also advocate the removal of prayer and or religious references from all facets of the public/State and Federal levels. You demand your right but want to take away mine? Very disturbing. But, again, reverse discrimination. In a society as advanced as we like to think we are, WHY does it have to be an argument for one or the other? Why are your rights so much more important than mine? Why is it important to you that I understand why you DON’T believe when you could care less if I DO believe? If EVERYONE is entitled to what they want to believe or not believe, and live in peace and be happy, then why do some feel the need to work so hard to make everything and everyone conform to their beliefs?

Vague Threats

41. i do believe in God: so people need to watch out what the put on a sign. boy if my sister get hold of this she will be calling on God to take it down:

HELP! HELP! I’m being oppressed!!!

42. I am very much a believer in God, and I believe there is truth in the statement, “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.” HOWEVER, I whole heartily support these people’s right to express their personal beliefs. Where I draw the line is when these people, who are a very small minority, try to force their beliefs upon the general population.

43. why don’t they do this campaign in countries likeIranorSaudi Arabia, i bet those atheists feel even more lonely! American Christians don’t force their religion on people,they, just like the CoR, like to get The Word out, but what you do with it, its up to the individual. TheUSAstill has religious freedom last i checked.

44. “We’re your friends…” really? Friends don’t slam your beliefs during your holiest of months. If you’re our friends why not put the billboard up in June? The answer is because you enjoy slamming Christians. Give me a break. You have the right to do whatever you want, but have some class and put your signs up during another time.

45. My question to the atheists and agnostics, what is the real purpose of the billboards during one of the most holiest times for Christian and Jews? Where were you in June?

46. Another example of the liberal left forcing atheism down peoples thought. Atheism is a religion by the way

I’ll pray for you…

47. All you can do is just like Jessica said… Just pray for these non believers and spread God’s word and love with your neighbors, friends, family, and everyone you come in contact with..

48. For us that beilieve in God we will be praying 4 u! Just remember God can save anyone who believes in him and give them greater things than any worldly posessions

Misc

49. To all atheists: If as a Christian I’m right …. then you lose. If you’re right … then you still lose. Good luck with those odds.

50. What happens if a person doesn’t believe atheism exists?

51.”Don’t Believe in God? You are not alone.” Unless you look at the really big picture and realize you are. Completely. Alone.

52. You know, if Hitler and Lt. Worf kissed, their mustaches wouldn’t touch.

53. If you choose to disregard God, you are alone

54. The liberal left so scare that they will have to pay for the destruction they have cuased in the world that they refuse to face the truth. God bless us all. I may put up pro Christmas billboards up on the other side of their stupid signs for a few years. Or on the LED on just as you come intocolumbia…Yep I think I should look into thatah…. the 1%

55. Never met an atheist on the battlefield!

56. I wonder if these people realize they are part of God’s plan for us. He said before His Son returns there will be multitudes turning away from Him.  Isn’t it nice to know that we can see His plan unfolding right before our eyes.  Praise God for His Word will not return void.  I am so happy the Atheists posted this large billboard.  They are fulfilling the Word with their actions. Now let’s see how many want to be part of fulfilling the Bible prophesy.Ive never met an atheist on his deathbed.

And all of this is just after the first day….

    You never met an Atheist on the battlefield because I was busy defending this “Christian Nation” and didn’t have time to listen to you blather on about your Bronze Age fairy tale.

  2. Alex November 23, 2011 at 1:22 pm #

    Sometimes this kind of hate-spewing makes me really sad or angry, but today it just strikes me as hilarious. The “reverse discrimination” one made me literally lol.

  3. Mike November 23, 2011 at 2:20 pm #

    Brad “Ice Man” Colbert would be proud to share his name with you stranger.

  4. Marian Vasile November 23, 2011 at 2:44 pm #

    “I hate you (God is love).”
    “I hate your gay parties.” Yet, you riot in the streets to protect a child raper and his supporters.
    “I spit on your gay military grave” (Love your neighbors)
    … and you’re asking what’s wrong with me?

    “This country was founded on Christian beliefs” – excuse me? which history did you read in school?
    “You’ll have to explain to God why you don’t believe in him” — I’m perfectly capable of explaining myself, thank you.

  5. Robert November 23, 2011 at 3:28 pm #

    Some of those are nearly unintelligible. These responses are so cliche they’re nearly a parody of themselves. On one hand funny, on the other sad.

  6. Jon November 23, 2011 at 3:35 pm #

    Typical. Lots of “You’ll burn in Hell with Satan if you don’t believe in my God!”

    Some of my favorites were:

    “I’ve never met an atheist on the battlefield!”
    So the only people who wage war are theists? Good to know.

    “This is a CHRISTIAN COUNTRY!!! This country was founded on Christian beliefs and we are One Nation Under God.”
    Article 11 of the Treaty of Tripoli says something different…

  7. SC Athiest November 23, 2011 at 4:46 pm #

    Way to go! Love the courage.

    I would love to see billboards exposing the hypocrasy of these “Christians”:

    “What would Jesus Cut out of the Budget?”

    “It’s easier for a rope to pass through the eye of a needle than a rich man to get into heaven”
    (I actually thought it was a camel instead of a rope… I had a crazy person correct me so I am using rope…What was funny was that he actually thought that made a difference in the context of the saying)

  8. Joea November 23, 2011 at 6:40 pm #

    Good luck dealing with all of this. I like how they say that they’re not allowed to have religious billboards, when they’re all over the country. What a bunch of mind controlled liars. They don’t think for themselves, they let a book and strangers (supposedly sent by god) dictate how they should live. That’s pathetic. That’s just as pathetic as a meth addict depending on his meth, they depend on their religions just because they are scared. Religion is the best way to put fear in someone’s heart, and it’s well known that the best way to control someone is to make them afraid. Every war is based on religion. And they still think that the Pope and all these clowns are here to be the word of God? Well then God is an asshole. Because these people rape children and fund wars. God is love… Yeah right! Think for a second, think real hard, and then you’ll snap out from being hypnotized by men of power.

  9. David Hobbles November 23, 2011 at 7:14 pm #

    Have you heard of a thing called “formatting”? You need some clearer headings in there to mark out which letter is which… all these flippin’ retards that’ve mailed you are either changing tone with every paragraph or each paragraph is a new letter or… I’ve no idea

  10. godlesspaladin November 23, 2011 at 7:18 pm #

    I’ve put a space break in between each comment, so as to distinguish one commenter from another. Sorry if that wasn’t clear. I’ll edit and include that.

  11. Kim November 23, 2011 at 10:22 pm #

    I’m honestly confused.
    Take this for example: “What happens if a person doesn’t believe atheism exists?”

    Well, nothing except we have a person on this earth that is in denial.
    It’s just about the same thing that would happen if a person doesn’t believe religion/apples/computers/light exist.

    I on the other hand can’t believe that there exist someone that is literally retarded enough to not understand that there are other people out there that doesn’t believe in your contradicting “holy” bible.

    I think that we atheist could proclaim something holy as well, without believing in a god. But to what purpose, I do not yet know. You know what I just proclaimed my computer holy in the name of me.

  12. TheSecretAtheist November 23, 2011 at 11:16 pm #

    I especially like the one that says, “GO TO HELL!!!1 (God is love)” though I think it might be a poe? But, this being the South it probably isn’t…

    Also like the first one where he signs his comment, among other things, “King of the round table”. 😀

    As for those saying we don’t let them put up their own billboards: I drive past one of theirs as often as I will drive past one of ours. There are probably others I haven’t noticed since billboards tend to blend in for me, especially with a christian message.

  13. TheSecretAtheist November 23, 2011 at 11:18 pm #

    Oh yeah, and when did November become the holiest of months for Christians?

  14. HelloMoto November 24, 2011 at 12:19 am #

    lol #42: “Where I draw the line is when these people, who are a very small minority, try to force their beliefs upon the general population”
    Science forbid, somebody goes around trying to force their beliefs upon others

  15. Hari Seldon November 24, 2011 at 2:20 am #

    Personal Favorite #39 “Heaven awaits those who walk in blind faith.”

    Pretty much sums it up…

  16. djmoonny November 24, 2011 at 6:20 pm #

    This is why people think Christians are nuts. Most of us aren’t like this. Please don’t judge 2 billion because of a few crazy people.

    Isn’t the goal to get people to reach out to Atheist groups in Columbia? Why are there no future events on http://unitedcor.org/columbia/page/events page?

    • godlesspaladin November 25, 2011 at 1:59 pm #

      I haveto put the events up there later today. We’re trying to organize a new members cookout. Details will be up on the website as soon as we get them figured out.

  19. Bobbe Edmonds November 28, 2011 at 7:22 pm #

    I left Columbia, S.C. 15 years ago for this very reason. The signal-to-noise ratio for sanity is far below tolerance levels.

    Also…You can’t argue with a hick. An education is SOOO necessary for that.

  20. theravenspoke December 7, 2011 at 9:36 pm #

    Props on the bill boards. I’m glad there’s a few intelligent people in South Carolina. You are a distinct minority in perhaps the worst of the 12 States of Stupid. I salute your fortitude. South Carolina has had a long romance with proud ignorance. I visited Charleston in 2005 and heard a tour guide refer to the “War of Northern Aggression”. Bless her heart.

    I have a plan for the South Carolina intelligentsia. I’m sure you’d all fit in a modest basketball arena so this shouldn’t be too difficult. The plan is quite brilliant, because it immediately improves your lives, puts Christian fundamentalism in a harsh light and administers long-overdue punishment for past transgressions.

    I know they still piss and moan about Sherman but, quiet frankly, dude went easy on them. In Sherman’s place I would have burned the entire state to the ground, then would executed every rebel officer of Captain’s rank and above. That’s the reasonable & necessary response to mass rebellion in defense of slavery.

    So here’s the plan: LEAVE THE STATE.

    That’s right, all the intelligent people in South Carolina LEAVE NOW. Move north, west or get yourself the expat gig you’ve always dreamed of. Move to a real city, like Chicago. Experience the future America, not a never-ending Reformation highlight reel. If you’re totally in love with southern weather, see a psychiatrist, then move to Nashville or Atlanta. No other substantial southern locales offer sufficient alternatives to “traditional southern values”.

    See the brilliance? Once South Carolina is 100% free of smart people, the entire state fall under the weight of its Rebel-flag worshiping backwardness. Did i mention how much I hate that ‘effing rag?

    YOU NEED TO GET PACKING, so stop reading this comment!

    there is no god of heaven if there was, why doesnt he show himself to us like many other gods have once done in hisctory. If there is a all minty god why doesnt he take out all who belive in other belives not his own.

    what makes him so powerfully over us if he doesnt even seem to care for us to send us all to the heavenly realm??

    if he was so powerfully as so many people think he is why doesnt he destory satan for ever and make peace for ever for the rest of the time the world thas to live.
