Aussie Bus Campaign – an update

yeah Ok Obama won, get over it, there’s other atheist stuff to worry about 🙂

An update on the Aussie Atheist Bus Campaign.

I have just read the latest on the AFA forum, and could not believe what I was reading. I responded with a rather terse reply. (it’s late, I’m tired,  I’ve had a few drinks – get over it) For those of you not privy to the AFA forum (and if you are an Australian Atheist why aren’t you?) here are a few snippets:

… here is the latest information from Metro Buses in Tasmania: “Metro has considered the advertising material and feel that there is reasonable potential for the message to stimulate debate from interest groups within the community, and possibly draw negative criticism that identifies metro as the advertising medium provider.

and here is my reply:

That stuff from Metro is BULLSHIT!! WhoTF do they think they are trying to kid.?????

Um, three things:
1) Metro – you are an advertising medium
2) Since when does anyone think that the adverts on buses (or whatever) represent what the bus company (or whatever) believes in? So bus companies believe in sexy lingerie, or perfumes?
3) What is so wrong with “stimulating debate”?

I also re-iterated my support for the bus advertising campaign, no matter what the slogan is; and I also suggested that the AFA should consider supplying a TV show like 4 corners with the problems they have encountered.

I think it would make for very interesting TV viewing, demonstrating the religious cowardice of advertising agencies and transport ministries here in Australia.

What do you think?
