A group of atheists at UTSA was asking students to exchange bibles for porn magazines Wednesday, and that has made some religious leaders angry. News 4 WOAI first broke the story at 6 p.m. Wednesday.

At a Wednesday night church service, The Bible is the bond between believers, but on the UTSA campus a group of students were calling scripture, smut.

“We consider The Bible to be a very negative force in the history of the world,” student Ryan Walker said. He is part of a student group calling itself the "Atheist Agenda."

Club members were on campus asking students to exchange religious materials for pornographic magazines like Black Label and Playboy.

News 4 WOAI’s Demond Fernandez showed the Athiest Agenda's "Smut for Smut" fliers to Pastor Rick Hawkins of the Family Praise Center.

“In my opinion, there are no atheists. There are fools,” Hawkins said. “So, that would be foolish propaganda.”

Other Christians we talked to agreed with Pastor Hawkins.

Athiest Agenda members said they got the idea from students in Austin. They claimed they were only exercising freedom of speech.

“I don't know one believer that would take his Bible and turn it in for pornography,” Pastor Hawkins said.

So far, only five students have exchanged their bibles for porn.

Why trade your bible when you can get it for free?

What a tool---that would be Ryan Walker.

No question that the bible has been used to justify all kinds of things over the years.

Just like pretty much every other holy work--and just like other methods of thought and reason, or philosophys that don't have a deity.

Hey, Hitler was rather fond of Wagner, his music inspired and motived him---should we veiw opera as a force for evil?

(personally that would be ok with me--I don't care for opera anymore than I do for brussel sprouts--and THEY ARE evil :)

This guy is a perfect example of leading a horse--or his ass--to water but you can't make him drink.

Guys at college--and seemingly has learned nothing.

I have no problem's with athiesm. Many close friends of mine are athiest.

I have no problems with christians, i have a few friends who are christians.

But dont force your beliefs on me!

If an athiest is trying to make everyone else athiest, he is just as bad as those door to door guys.

Agreed.

I have no problems with folks belief systems or lack there of.

Just don't try making "your" beliefs "my" problem.

Wonder if the guy in the article understands that he is every bit as annoying and pushy as the folks that come to your door trying to "save" you?

My guess is that he would have some spurious, post-hoc rationaliztion as to why what he was doing was "different."
