New Atheist bus campaign is wicked
At first, when the atheist bus campaign started gathering steam, I was a little skeptical of the relative merit of it all (I mean, when’s the last time an ad ever convinced you to do anything?). That was before realizing the controversy surrounding them would help galvanize atheists. I was man enough to reverse my position, and I’m happy to say I’m a fan now.
The latest campaign out of Britain has me even more excited. As you can see, their new strategy is to get parents to stop labeling kids under their religious denomination. My guess is it’s going to create a shit storm of controversy, and that’s fucking exciting as hell. I’m also really interested to see how this campaign gets criticized by believers. Seriously, what are they going to say, “I want the right to indoctrinate my own child and control the religion they will adhere to”? Uh, wait a minute:
..a representative of the Christian Schools Trust questioned who would “fill the vacuum” if parents did not pass on their fundamental beliefs.
How about we don’t fill kids’ heads with bullshit.
