As reported by 5newsonline, a national atheist organization has put up a billboard in Springdale, Arkansas depicting a little girl writing to Santa saying she wants to skip church on Christmas because she’s too old for fairy tales (but not too old to believe in Santa, apparently).

Just like my head-scratching over the Freedom From Religion Foundation, which continues to profess being “offended” by something they say doesn’t exist — but hey, we have our freedoms, right?

Nearly two-thirds of British people stated that religion causes more harm than it brings benefits, according to a new poll, which shows Muslim beliefs at odds with those of the rest of society.
The poll of 2,004 people conducted by Survation exclusively for Huffington Post UK revealed that nearly two in five Britons have no religious allegiance, with just 56 percent describing themselves as Christians.
The figures for active worship are even more stark, with 60 percent of the population surveyed claiming they are “not religious at all” with only 8 percent saying they are “very religious.”
“Religion has become a ‘toxic brand’ in the UK," Linda Woodhead, professor of the sociology of religion at Lancaster University, told HuffPost UK.
"What we are seeing is not a complete rejection of faith, belief in the divine, or spirituality, though there is some of that, but of institutional religion in the historic forms which are familiar to people.”

The United Kingdom government has banned the teaching of creationism as a scientific theory in free schools and academies, which are the equivalent of a 'public' school in the United States. The move was done in the interests of having a "broad and balanced curriculum," according to UPI.
The remarkable decision was part of a document published on June 9th that laid outnew clauses for church academies and stated that creationism is not widely accepted as a scientific theory.

The Satanic Temple in Orange County, Florida, is planning to hand out satanic "children activity books" at some schools.
The group is distributing the material as a response to the school district allowing a Christian group to leave Bibles, saying their whole point is to counter biblical indoctrination.
"It's far better philosophically for us and we feel for the students, that they see there is a multiplicity of voices and that there's many voices and choices," Lucien Greaves, spokesperson for the Satanic Temple, said.

Though only 17, high school senior Perri Frost has met more than her share of atheists and agnostics. For several years she has been reaching out to fellow teens who are skeptics, including some who post videos on the internet insulting God.
"Some of the teens who seem most hostile toward God are the same ones who emphasize that they are rational thinkers," she says. "It seems odd to want to insult Someone who supposedly isn't there."
Regarding the videos, Frost is referring to "The Blasphemy Challenge," an Internet-related activity that encourages people to post a clip of themselves cursing God or renouncing the Holy Spirit's work in their life. The more brazen clips include assertions that the person willingly accepts the consequences this action (including hell) incurs should it turn out that God does exist.

SEARCY, Ark. – The Christian owner of an Arkansas pizza parlor received a warning letter from atheists for offering discounts to customers who bring church bulletins to the restaurant.
Steven Rose is owner of Bailey’s Pizza—a small, down-home restaurant in Searcy, Arkansas. The pizza parlor offers customers an old-fashioned ambiance, something Rose describes as an “old school country atmosphere.”
Rose, a Christian, says his restaurant, which opened last month, features a wall with a variety of verses from the Bible.
“God is the center of our lives,” a plaque on the Scripture wall says, “so our scripture wall is at the center of Bailey’s Pizza!”
“Take time to read the scriptures others have written,” the plaque continues, “and if you want—ask your waitress for use of our markers to add your own.”
During a weekend last month, Rose invited the restaurant’s patrons to bring church bulletins to the pizza shop on Sunday and receive a 10% discount.
“Happy Sunday, y’all!” a July 20 post on the restaurant’s Facebook page stated. “Bring in your church bulletin and receive 10% off. We open at 11:00. Have a blessed day.”

The next time your pastor delivers a pro-life sermon or urges the congregation to stand up for pro-life values in the political or public arena, he could be taken to task by the IRS.
Alliance Defending Freedom asked the Internal Revenue Service Tuesday to release all documents related to its recent decision to settle a lawsuit with an atheist group that claims the IRS has adopted new protocols and procedures for the investigation of churches.
ADF submitted the Freedom of Information Act request after learning of the IRS’s agreement with Freedom From Religion Foundation in a press releasethe group issued on July 17 concerning its lawsuit Freedom From Religion Foundation v. Koskinen, which accused the agency of failing to investigate churches the way the atheist group would like.
