You suck, New Zealand
Ok, well, maybe the whole country doesn’t suck, but your bus company, NZ Bus sure does. They’ve just rejected the Atheist Bus Campaign after they received complaints about the ads.
Is it surprising that not everyone would be pleased with the simple and direct message “There’s probably no God”? It’s not as though these buses haven’t also featured religious ads that were just as offensive to non-believers. The difference, of course, is we aren’t afraid of their message, but they sure are scared shitless of ours. Do they detest the message of the ad, or are they afraid it might actually shake a few people out of their delusional bubble? I wonder.
The organizers have been refused arbitration, and are thinking of appealing to the Human Rights Commission as a result. I think it’s blatant pandering to religious bigots who can’t stand anyone with a dissenting view.
