Can you picture it? It could be amazing, if we do it right. I’ve mentioned it before and had mixed responses. Here are my thoughts:
It can’t be negative. As an example, I was not a fan of the You Know It’s A Myth banners put up by the American Atheists.
I am in favor of the AA’s substantive causes but I found this billboard campaign smug and petty (I feel the same about campaigns to remove Christmas trees from public venues).
The high road. If we put up a billboard, it must be a positive message – it must promote us and our ideals, not attack another group. Satire and nonsense are great, attacking Christianity is boring and counter-productive. I have no problem slamming Cthulhu and/or the IPU (She is in my drawing, also btw).
Send me your ideas/drawings. I’ll post them here. What would make a good billboard? A pirate ship “full of beer and strippers”? That might be interesting. It’s been a while since I’ve seen a drawing of the Beer Volcano. Send your submissions to me and we can decide what would look best. We’ll worry about paying for the billboard space next.
