Hmm,

Stephen Green said:
"There is plenty of evidence for God, from people's personal experience, to the complexity, interdependence, beauty and design of the natural world.

"But there is scant evidence on the other side, so I think the advertisers are really going to struggle to show their claim is not an exaggeration or inaccurate, as the ASA code puts it."
Mr Icke, you haven't been taking your pills again, have you!

Now MPs are at it too... the same MPs who demand the Christian right to give offence to others are demanding that others should be forbidden from giving offence to Christians....

That this House notes that posters with the slogan `There's Probably No God. Now Stop Worrying and Enjoy Your Life', appear on 800 buses in England, Scotland and Wales, as well as on the London Underground; notes that this causes concern to Christian and Muslim people, many of whom feel embarrassed and uncomfortable travelling on public transport displaying such advertisements and would not wish to endorse the advertisements by using that public transport; regrets that the British Humanist Association backs the campaign; and calls on Ministers responsible for public transport and advertising media to investigate this matter and to seek to remove these religiously offensive and morally unhelpful advertisements.


...so much for free speech! :roll:

I rather liked this letter in today's Telegraph (link):

Daily Telegraph said:
Suspension of disbelief

SIR – “There is probably no God,†it says on the outside of a London bus.

There was probably no atheist among the passengers on the US Airways Airbus without functioning engines over the Hudson River.

It was certainly noticeable how the Padre's congregation swelled considerably whenever we went into action.

Does this house also note that posters with the slogan "JESUS said: I am the resurrection, and the life, whoever believes in Me will live." also appear on buses in England, Scotland and Wales, and that this causes concern to Atheists and Muslims...

Of course not; remember that you're perfectly free to offend people if it's part of your religion to do so!
