Some featured videos on Youtube, and suprisingly I noticed an ad for it on this web site, involves the "I'm a Mormon" campaign. If you're not familiar, and I myself am only going off of memory, the Mormon church is attempting to advertize that they aren't a bunch of looney bins; just regular people. In an attempt to revamp the church's image, they have a wide range of people from varying backgrounds describe their life in one or two minutes and at the last moment...throw in that they also happen to be Mormon.

 

As an Atheist, I am intrigued by this idea. Atheists are extremely misunderstood and misrepresented, so why not do the same thing in the form of a wave of posts on Youtube? I am curious as to other peoples' ideas on this.

 

Looking forward to your thoughts!

The Freedom From Religion Foundation did this with their "Out of the Closet" campaign before and during their annual conference last fall. Lots of billboards and bus ads displayed "ordinary' people from all walks of life who also happen to be atheists. Very well done. http://ffrf.org/news/releases/ffrf-debuts-out-of-the-closet/

Sounds good to me. I wouldnt want to be in an ad. Plus I'm a boring person.

Yeah its not a bad idea, though I get the impression (maybe its just me) that atheists are a little more apathetic when it comes to self-advertisement. Religious people seem to get off on the idea of self-promotion, at least more than atheists do, imo.

I like the idea. How about adding adding famous people living and dead like Mark Twain?
