Atheist Ads Featuring Christians

I read this the other day too but then just noticed it again on Ken Ham's blog while doing some Old Testament Survey Research.

In some ways a very amusing, but at the same time very sad, item out of England appeared on websites yesterday. Well-known atheist/anti-Christian Richard Dawkins (author of the blasphemous God Delusion book) has an ad campaign to promote indoctrinating children in atheism. The article concerning this campaign from the Times online news source from England states:

Children who front Richard Dawkins’ atheist ads are evangelicals

The two children chosen to front Richard Dawkins’s latest assault on God could not look more free of the misery he associates with religious baggage. With the slogan “Please don’t label me. Let me grow up and choose for myself”, the youngsters with broad grins seem to be the perfect advertisement for the new atheism being promoted by Professor Dawkins and the British Humanist Association.

Except that they are about as far from atheism as it is possible to be. The Times can reveal that Charlotte, 8, and Ollie, 7, are from one of the country’s most devout Christian families.
