Atheists attend God and Country Day at the Fair

Church members and atheists alike attended God and Country Day at the Wilson County Fair Sunday.

For years the fair has offered a $2 discount to church members. This year, the rules changed after a group of atheists contacted fair officials saying the discount is unfair.

“The $2 discount only to Christians is a discriminatory practice. You might as well put only white people get a discount today,” expressed Blair Scott with the National American Atheists affiliate.

Fair officials compromised and agreed to accept printouts from all organizations, including atheists.

About a dozen atheists came to the fair on Sunday wearing shirts to identify their group. Several church organizations did the same.
