Atheist Bus Ads Still Pissing People Off

This entry was posted in Beliefs, General, Practices on by .

A while back I mentioned some atheist bus ads that were going up in Britain. Apparently they’ve been successful enough that the ads are spreading to Barcelona, where 94% of the population is Catholic. there__s_no_god.jpgMy sister lives in Barcelona, so I’ll see if I can get her to take a picture of “There’s probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life,â€? translated into Catalan on the side of a bus.

Even Italy was going to get in on the game, with buses saying, “The bad news is that God does not exist. The good news is that we do not need him,� but it looks like some Italian conservative politicians in might be trying to stop that campaign from going up. just_be_good.jpg

The Christian Post:

“Right-wing politicians criticized us ferociously,� said Giorgio Villella of The Italian Union of Atheists and Rationalist Agnostics (UAAR) to Reuters.

“It’s strange that in a country where ads depicting near-naked women wearing skimpy lingerie is permitted on buses that we can’t run ads about atheism,� he complained.

I have to admit, that’s a pretty good point… On the other hand, as Adfreak points out:

Yeah, how about that. People would rather stare at boobs than have their belief structures questioned by a total stranger.
