(Washington, D.C., November 9, 2010) A national multimedia ad campaign – the largest, most extensive ever by a godless organization - launches today and will include a spot on NBC Dateline on Friday, November 12, as well as other television ads, that directly challenge biblical morality and fundamentalist Christianity.  The campaign, sponsored by the American Humanist Association, also features ads in major national and regional newspapers and magazines demonstrating that secular humanist values are consistent with mainstream America and that fundamentalist religion has no right to claim the moral high ground.

nor accommodate a theist backlash.

Oh, there's plenty of room for a theist backlash.

"They're saying the Good Book is fallible! They're probably perverts and Satan worshipers and homosexuals!"

You're forgetting the 'Promise' campaign run by the Southern Baptist Convention, 9 or 10 years back. They actively pushed for all women to submit to their husband in all ways, and the same people are pushing against women in all church functions with any sort of authority.

This sort of thing is also why the Catholic church considers the ordination of women to be a first tier sin, resulting in excommunication of the woman and everyone involved with her posing as a priest. There are too many people who Consider 1 Timothy 2:11 to be perfectly reasonable, but this campaign isn't aimed at people like them.
The backlash has already begun, even over the use of that verse from 1 Timothy:

Gee whiz, big surprise, the non-theists have the unmitigated NERVE to say something which doesn't fall in lockstep with the theists and the theists have an entirely-too-predictable shit-fit. About as radical as sunrise in the morning.

I say we fund this campaign all we can, continue the presence and the pressure ... and KEEP COOL. The theists will react and overreact ... and maybe, just maybe, some people will actually SEE them for what they are for the first time. We won't win over everyone, but we will get a few.

This may be a modest first step, but I think it's a good one.
Woot! I'm good.
