Atheists Bus Ads Go Up in Anchorage, Alaska

The Freedom From Religion Foundation just put up ten signs bearing four different messages on buses in Anchorage, Alaska:

The signs will be up for the next month and were primarily paid for by a generous local donor:

Dan Barker, Foundation co-president, a former minister-turned atheist, said Christians tend to think “they own the month of December. We don’t agree. No month is free from pagan reverie!”

“Given that independent streak Alaskans are known for, there are many nonbelievers in Anchorage and Alaska at this time of year, who also have a message of good news and cheer — that reason is the answer,” says FFRF Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor.

So which ad will generate the most controversy? My money’s on the “Yes, Virginia” one.
