How often is it that you can call any decidedly Christian rock song a “chart-topper?” Probably not since the mid-’90s, when singers like Amy Grant or LeAnn Rimes could combine their theology with an insane vocal range.
But against all odds, it’s happened again:
Deron Williams is a hot commodity right now: The NBA player almost single-handedly turned around the New Jersey Nets’ subpar season when he scored a personal and team-breaking record of 57 points off the Charlotte Bobcats in March. (Not to mention that this was the NBA’s season record high as well.) Comparisons to Kobe Bryant were inevitable, since he’s the only player to beat the Bobcats with more points than Mr. Williams.
While on the topic of just really respectful advertising today, here’s American Atheists telling Hasidic Jews in Williamsburg and Muslims in Patterson, New Jersey, that they know their religion is a lie.
“You know it’s a myth,” reads the signs, which cost $30,000 each to post in heavily Muslim-and-Hasidic areas. (They read in Arabic and Hebrew respectively.) “And you have a choice.”
Are you coming up on this election year feeling a little limp? Don’t have the stamina to plow through another round of “Yes we can?” (Especially since you’re not even in the mood anymore?) Do you live on 123rd street and Riverside Drive?
Well, then you’re in for a big treat this morning. Designer Kenneth Cole is premiering the first politically-aimed billboard in his “Where Do You Stand?” campaign.
If you hadn’t had the pleasure of checking out Wodka Vodka’s billboard alluding to the stereotype of Jewish dogs being really cheap, you’ve missed your chance. The ad has been torn down and put in a “crumpled heap near the road.”
But don’t worry…Wodka has so many more mascots to offend you!
