Christian Bigots Vandalize North Carolina Billboard

A billboard placed along the Billy Graham Parkway by the North Carolina Secular Association was vandalized. What was so offensive about the billboard? It contained a phrase from America's original pledge of allegiance: "One nation, indivisible." Evidently, these Christian bigots hate traditional America.

As most educated people know, "under god" was not added until 1954, the result of a campaign by a Roman Catholic organization, the Knights of Columbus. It was an effort to distinguish the U.S. from godless Communism and marked an important point along the path to equating atheism and Communism in the minds of most Americans.
