LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The billboards include messages such as "praying doesn't work," "God didn't create man" and "Why are so many believers full of hatred for others? Why are so many believers intolerant of others' beliefs?"

According to KDLT, Dale Hemming, founder of both the Sioux Falls Atheists and Sioux Falls Free Thinkers, decided to post the extremely offensive and entirely unwarranted anti-religious messages simply because he wanted to encourage others to follow his belief to disbelieve.


"I really want people to start and think about this stuff," he explained. "[J]ust parroting what you've been taught as a child is not a very good way to go through life. You have to go beyond what you were told at six-years-old."

Apparently, Hemming was not told to be respectful of others and their decisions to believe in whatsoever they choose, at six-years-old.

Interestingly, many atheists cling to hatred and a superiority complex as driving forces to spread their non-belief.

Popular atheist extremist group Freedom From Religion Foundation has been known to invade school football games and Bible clubs follows a similar pattern - demanding people think for themselves while hypocritically telling them what to believe.

Former Pastor Randy Stewart explained how differently things would be had the billboards been of religious origins.

"Freedom of speech, he has the right to say it, but if we tried to take the opposing view, I suspect that [Hemming] and his organization would do everything they could to try and repress it."


Meanwhile, Hemming admitted most will not pay much attention to the billboards and will refuse to change their beliefs, but admitted, "I want to raise awareness of the kinds of things I think people should be aware of."

The billboards will remain posted for six weeks with others coming up to join them within the next two weeks. All religious peoples can do is turn a blind eye to the extremely offensive billboards and pray that God touch the hearts of Hemming and his ilk.
