Atheist advertising is still news
A new billboard is going up in six North Carolina cities with a seemingly innocuous slogan superimposed on an image of the American flag: “One Nation Indivisible.”
It’s what the slogan doesn’t say that may bother some people.
Since 1954, the Pledge of Allegiance has split those three words to include two others: “under God.”
But this billboard was paid for by the North Carolina Secular Association, a coalition of nonbelievers and agnostics. Their message: We’re Americans, too.
“We’re trying to restore the sense of one nation indivisible,” said Joseph McDaniel Stewart, a member of Charlotte Atheists and Agnostics who initiated the billboard campaign. “It’s a nation that welcomes people who believe or don’t believe. Everybody’s equal in the eyes of the law.”
