Get thee from a nunnery

An atheist group in Texas is handing out free porn to those who turn in their bibles.

"We consider the bible to be a very negative force in the history of the world," student Ryan Walker said. Walker is part of a student group that calls itself the Atheist Agenda.
Club members this week posted fliers promoting what they call the "Smut for Smut" campaign then set up a table in the student union to collect religious materials and pass out adult magazines such as Black Label and Playboy.
Amanda Marcotte writes:
"Despite the fact that I keep my Bible on the same shelf with my porn under the label 'masturbatory fantasy materials.' I'm amused by this idea. Sinning is way more fun if you get the side benefit of pissing off easily offended Bible thumpers in the process, though I don't think the disapproving/envious faces of the thumpers is really what you want to be imagining when partaking of the pornographic materials. More like a nice afterthought."
I'm thoroughly amused too though I have to come clean about my more strategy-oriented side cringing in a way-to-pour-fuel-on-the-fire-of-ridiculous-rightwing-fantasies-of-secularist-haters sort of way.

And then there's the tiredness of the "bible as cause of strife" argument. Institutionalized atheism hasn't been around for very long yet its past isn't anything to write home about. Ever try to get porn, or have a decent life in the Soviet Union? (Pandagon)
