The controversial atheist message aka “No God” print ads (banned in Italy), are going to grace Toronto soon…on TTC red rockets of course! To give you a taste, one ad reads:
“There’s probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.”
The Advertising Standards Authority ruled in favour of the atheist bus campaign and it is being championed by the Toronto-based Freethought Association of Canada that has been approved by the TTC to appear on buses & inside subway cars (paid for by public donation). The spots have created intense conversations, debates, anger, buzz and all all that great stuff. The ads were used in a similar campaign in Britain recently.
One blogger wrote: We wished to introduce our perspective into an ongoing discussion on the role of faith in a secular society and sincerely hoped it would create fruitful dialogue.
