Atheists Offer Porn in Exchange for Bibles


April 16, 2012

A small group of students at the University of Texas at San Antonio recently spent two days sitting in the middle of campus next to two bright red signs, one that said "Free Porn" and the other offering "Smut for Smut." The students, all members of Atheist Agenda, hoped to entice their classmates to turn in their Bibles in exchange for pornographic magazines -- a provocative offer designed to shock and attract attention, WORLD News Service reports. In 2008, the event caused an uproar on campus and made headlines around the world, but this year, few students took notice. During the four hours Atheist Agenda members spent next to their signs each day, only about 30 people stopped by to get information about the club or start a debate. About 30 yards away from the tables, a small group of students from the campus Victory and Praise Choir stood in a circle, holding hands, praying and quietly singing worship songs. The singers first gathered to protest the atheist event last year, assistant choir director Tarvia Demerson said, adding that they hoped to show people walking by that the atheists weren't the only ones willing to make a bold public statement about their beliefs.
