Christianist Group's Billboard Compares Atheism To Murder

A group calling themselves "Answers in Genesis" recently took out a billboard in Texas depicting a young boy holding a gun.

Here’s how Answers in Genesis describes themselves:

An apologetics (i.e., Christianity-defending) ministry,
dedicated to enabling Christians to defend their faith and to proclaim
the gospel of Jesus Christ effectively…we also desire to train others
to develop a biblical worldview, and seek to expose the bankruptcy of
evolutionary ideas, and its bedfellow, a “millions of years old” earth
(and even older universe).

[..]Personally, I can’t believe they are implying that
non-believers, or to whom God “doesn’t matter,” are going to take a gun
and shoot someone in the face.

Striking yes; thoughtful, absolutely not.

Although supposedly their beef is
with evolution, I don’t see how that point is conveyed with this
picture. So, according to them, believing what Darwin had to say means
a person is lawless and will go on a killing rampage?

This advertisement is absolutely disgusting and should be removed. Don't they know that most white supremacist hate groups claim to be Christian? The Christian group responsible for this billboard ad should also be fined a hefty fee.
