Is this billboard offensive?

Apparently that's what a billboard company in north central Ohio said in refusing to put it up. However the company is quite willing to post religious billboards.

The whole story is quite bizarre. (Via Pharyngula)

This illustrates once again that religious people resort to the strategy of 'taking offense' because they have no rational arguments to counter those of the atheists.

This is the point that accomodationists refuse to grasp no matter how often it's demonstrated: it is simply impossible for atheists to avoid "offending" many religionists, because they presume to take offense at our very existence. Therefore, there is no good case to be made for bending over backwards. Speaking out boldly is a far better strategy for defending our rights and promoting rationality.
