Donate to The Canadian Atheist Bus Campaign and get those atheist signs on Canada's buses and subways.
It's going to happen in Toronto, and Calgary is probably the next city according to the Freethought Association. An article in last week's Calgary Herald highlights some of the opposition to the atheist campaign [Calgary next for atheist bus ads, activist group says].
Calgary Catholic Bishop Fred Henry said the ideal date to launch such a campaign would be April Fool's Day."Aggressive, inward-looking, self-indulgent and narcissistic," now that's offensive. Is this what Bishop Henry means by "deep respect for all the individual players"?
"I don't know what the norms Calgary Transit uses to accept advertising, but if the benchmark is that it should be non-offensive, I'm offended," said Henry.
"This is insulting to us. The interfaith dialogue that goes on in this city is characterized by deep respect for all the individual players."
Henry characterized the ad's message as aggressive, inward-looking, self-indulgent and narcissistic.
