God is Not American - Who Knew?

So... today for lunch Greg and I are tooling down Adams Street, headed to fifth, for a run to Roy's. We're chatting - had to stop for a train - looking forward to some exceptional barbecue.

We have to stop at a light at fourth street and I glance to my left and what do I see? Well, it's a billboard. But it's one I can't believe I'm seeing my little red midwestern town that's smack dab in the middle of a red state.

I don't know who put it up - no doubt they'll keep their identity well under wraps in this conservative spot. But, oh my gosh, there it was for everyone to see in stark black and white - "GOD IS NOT AMERICAN ...think about it."

We both whipped out the cameras and started snapping away. I'm sorry I didn't have time to post it earlier in the day but it was a busy day today. Thank goodness for digital cameras and the convenience of always having them handy.

I'm surprised there have not been massive pile-ups at the intersection. And I'm amazed churches are not demanding it be taken down because of its lies. We all know God is an American - more specifically a REPUBLICAN American. Right? (Hopefully all readers of my blog recognize sarcasm.)

I'm guessing it's a take off from the book, "God Is Not: Religious, Nice, One of Us, an American, a Capitalist" but I don't know. I just know someone paid some money to print it and post it. I'm curious who.

Hee hee hee... and right in time for the Kansas State Fair that starts in town tomorrow...

There's someone around I like, and I don't even know who it is. Obviously, there's another group I need to join.
