Well, I guess the atheist bus ad strategy is catching on. Though someone was definitely not thinking strategically in this case.
Not only are there now bus ads for Islam, they’re appearing on buses in San Francisco…
Two immediate thoughts:
First of all, I better not hear of any atheist protesting those signs being allowed on the buses. If we want our ads on buses, we need to support free speech for them, too.
Secondly, that sign is *so* ineffective. Atheists are clearly much better at designing catchy, welcoming, pleasant bus advertising Good for us.
Not only that, but if you go to the website in question, the gay people in San Francisco will be happily enlightened, I’m sure:
What Does Islam Say About Homosexuality?
Islam teaches that homosexual acts are sinful and punishable by God. This teaching comes not from human beings, but from the Creator of all humans. God tells us in His own words how He punished the people of Lot for their homosexual behaviour.
Yep. I’m convinced. I’m sure the gay people are, too. Anyone else ready to convert?
What other religious advertising will we see in the near future?
Where would be a good place (or not-so-good place) for that religion to advertise?
