We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Your sign "?" isn't part of the graphic-design being critiqued -- it is editorial in the above post.
Anyway, if it is your sign as a skeptic, it is ambiguous -- because everyone knows that "?" as a marker for Unitarian Universalists.

I also appreciated the last line, saying bluntly what everyone knows but makes Christians look thin-skinned if they point it out. Similarly, in my liberal human-services place of employment, stickers such as "Love the World. No Exceptions." are supposed to be understood as only well-meant sentiments of universal kindness.
CS Lewis had the demon Screwtape describe it well to his nephew Wormwood: "...the delightful situation of a human saying things with the express purpose of offending and yet having a grievance when offence is taken."

Only one criticism.
"[Symbol of] Gay Rights has been suppressed by all religions, which makes it intolerant of [symbols of] Islam, Judaism and Chistianity."
And yet, whenever there's an anti-Israel march or demonstration, there are always gays protesting for Palestine.
When it comes to homosexuality, Israel is the most liberal nation in the Middle East (more liberal than many other Western countries!) yet gays turn out to support Islamist regimes run by Hamas and Hezbollah: regimes that would put them all to death in the blink of an eye.
JJM, I have noticed something similar, but point out that the gay activist vote is different from the gay population vote. This is true of progressive groups in general, where the activist leadership is noisily supportive of every other liberal cause, while the rank-and-file are decidedly more mixed.
Go to a liberal rally for anything and you see pockets of all the others as well. But I think it's pretty much the same professional liberals going to each others events as a show of solidarity.
