In Polk County, Florida on Sunday, atheists (from the Humanists of Florida Association) used “unholy water” to wash away a "blessing" placed on a highway by a religious group one year ago (video below).
Humanists of Florida Association (HFA) director Mark Palmer told a group assembled to unbless Highway 98: “We come in peace. Now that’s normally what aliens say when they visit a new planet, but we’re not aliens, we’re atheists!”
Palmer told Bay News 9: “It sends a very bad signal to everyone in Polk County, and (anyone) who travels through Polk county who doesn’t happen to be Christian. This event is not about atheist rights; this is about welcoming everybody into Polk county.”
Frank Smith Ministries was blessing the Florida highways as part of the Polk Under Prayer (PUP) project.
On their website, they state: “It’s objective is to place Holy Angels at all roads that lead into or out of Polk County. A strip of anointed oil has been placed over all lanes of highway at the county line and a prayer has been given at each location asking God to have angels inspect every vehicle that travels into or out of this county and to bring under conviction to those who seek evil and we asked God to bring them to a state of submission and repentance.”
“If they will not submit to God’s way of living, then the prayer is to have them incarcerated or removed from the county."
