Atheist Bus Ads Censored

Three Canadian cities have refused to allow the message of the atheist bus campaign on its city buses. Why? Because some religious types might be offended. I wrote about the atheist bus campaign before. Even though I'm an atheist, I think it is a pointless waste of money. But the message is about as mild as you could possibly get: "There's probably no God, now stop worrying and enjoy your life." That line is so offensive that it needs to be banned from city buses? Why cater to hypersensitive idiots who are offended by the most innocuous things?

  1. This is why the atheist bus campaign is not a waste of money: it sends a message that needs to be heard, puts it in the public sphere that usually is plagued with religious advertisement. The cities who censored it are cowards. I am happy that we have the campaign here in the UK (where it started) and that it will be in Montreal on Monday.
