Atheist group apologizes for misquoting Palin, but defends billboard's intent

Washington (CNN) – An atheist group that misquoted former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin in a billboard in Texas is apologizing to the Republican and correcting the mistake. But it continues to defend the “intent and context” of the effort.

CNN first reported on Sunday that American Atheists, a group known for its in-your-face tactics, was sponsoring a billboard calling out Palin for something she said while on Fox News.

    They'll threaten to use their guns to defend their guns and the 2nd...but when it comes to the 1st, the radicalized right wing religio-fascist god-monkeys will threaten to use their guns to get rid of it. Cue their poo flinging in 3...2...1...

    Dumb for American Atheists to keep Palin in the lime light. Better to let her fade away quietly.

    There is so much Palin said that is either wrong or based on warped & incorrect information.

    Hey CNN, newsflash. Even faux news gave up on this imbecile. Why don't you follow in their steps?
    The woman should have vanished in 2008 like the insignificant gnat that she is. She brought forth all this hatred and she is a major part of what is happening to our country thanks to the senile old man from AZ.
    As far as misquoting her . . . . is that really news? She can't put a sentence togehter if her life depended on it. Too bad it doesn't!
