A nationwide pro-atheist campaign launched to coincide with Black History Month has some African-Americans reaffirming their spiritual convictions.
“It’s a sign of the end times,” said Reverend Kyev Tatum of Harmony Missionary Baptist Church in Texas. “People will turn from the truth and the Bible says this is going to happen.”
What’s happening is that the African Americans for Humanism group is directly targeting African-Americans who may be questioning their religious beliefs with a series of billboards posted in predominantly black areas across the country. The Stiefel Freethought Foundation provided substantial financial support for the campaign.
Some believe it’s a direct attack on African-American Christians, a claim the AAH national director Debbie Goddard refutes.
