Thieves broke into a Sacramento, Calif., church last week and stole Thanksgiving food that the congregation intended to give to those in need, but the giveaway became even bigger than planned after the surrounding community rallied to support the church.
Charlotte Barbee, the youth pastor at Christ Temple Apostolic Church, says a church deacon discovered Friday morning that the donated food items, including frozen turkeys, had been taken. The thieves broke into the church's gymnasium and ransacked the attached kitchen.
Barbee, who works at UC Davis Medical Center, says she told her coworkers what had happened and within half an hour people began donating money to replenish the supply of food. She also posted a message to Facebook asking for prayer and support, and by Friday evening she had already received several calls from different media outlets. more >>
The Freedom From Religion Foundation is putting up over 55 billboards across Sacramento, Calif., in November with messages like "I'm not a believer and life is still awesome." A local bishop has branded the ads as "propaganda."
"While I'm not happy about these billboards, I am certain people still, when they look deep down in their soul and in their heart, find a spark. They believe in a higher power," said Bishop Jaime Soto with the Cathedral of a Blessed Sacrament in an interview with FOX40.
FFRF, one of the largest secular groups in the nation, says that its idea behind the billboards is to show that atheists are regular people too who can be good and happy and love the holidays, but without a belief in God. The ads feature images of secular people and couples with declarations reading: "Integrity and passion require no gods" and "Reason. Equality. Doing good without Gods." more >>
Atheists in San Diego, Calif. are trying a new approach to recruiting non-believers by offering food, such as pretzels and cheezits, and putting up large banners that read "Relax: hell does not exist, or heaven either, enjoy your life."
The atheists are members of the San Diego-based group the San Diego Coalition of Reason, and every Saturday they set up a booth in the city's Balboa Park alongside other religious groups, such as Hare Krishnas and evangelical Christians, to educate passerby on their lack of beliefs. Along with the quirky banner that hangs over their booth, members of the group also lure people into a conversation using pretzels and Cheezits; the pretzels are used to symbolized the "twisted logic" of theism, while the cheezits represent the "power" of non-belief.
"We like to have a gathering place for our members, people that want to chat, get to know each other, they can come do that on any Saturday," Debbie Allen, one of the organizers for the atheist group, told local KPBS-TV. "But also we like to let the community know that there are groups that they may want to participate in." more >>
