Something special today? How about an atheist Bus Campaign

Feb 14, 2013 Full story: Brand Republic 69

Do you remember that controversial bus advertising campaign from 2009? Ads from The British Humanist Association appeared promoting atheism on London buses following an effort to raise money funded by members of the public and the scientist and author Richard Dawkins.

326 complaints from 60-odd million Brits? Perhaps there are fewer religious nutters in the UK than I thought.

I liked the ad campaign but would have preferred something more controversial - such as a picture of Mohammed eating a baconburger with the caption:
..what would Jesus say? "No haram done" perhaps?..

An atheist bus campaign?
Sure it can do the rounds, it wouldnt need a toilet because the public ones would be the bus stops for it.

First you say Jesus doesnt exist, then you say poofs are ok.
Now you say Jesus was a poof?

Hypocrite much?

Oh, Look! The Genuine Catholic™ is whining again.

But yeah-- if you look at the stories that supposedly tell about this Jewsus?

He was as gay as anyone on the planet.

And that's okay with me-- I have no problem with gays.

But you?

You are so afraid of gays, you are probably one yourself.

Good for you! It would be the ONE attribute you could be proud of!

You are too generous, Spiro.

Literally.

Bob's daddy taught him how to swim by pitching him out in a lake. Swimming was easy. The hard part was getting the sack untied to get out.

More Brits would have complained, but their teeth hurt so bad they could not open their mouths in the cold air.

Just adding some background. Hope it is helpful, Ed Sled.

Why not? Buses don't believe in god.

Also I've no issue about jesus being a trouser trombonist, so long as he never forced anyone.

So youre saying Jesus was a poof?
Are you admitting he actually existed?

I can't prove that jesus existed and I can't prove jesus wasn't gay either.

As I'm not homophobic, I'm really not bothered.

I agree--it hardly matters either way.

Myth or real, gay or straight? It just doesn't matter.

More to the point? None of the modern self-proclaimed followers actually...

... do what he allegedly said to do.

NONE.

Without a single exception.

At a bare minimum, they own sh7t...

I guess you can't tell the difference between someone talking about a fictional character from a book, or a real person. I have heard people saying that Zeus was a womanizer. No, I didn't believe that they thought Zeus was real, but rather that they were commenting on a fictional character. They didn't need to tell me the obvious.

Does that help?

Indeed. One may form opinions on fictional characters based on the various descriptions.

And then, compare those descriptions against what real people do, who are similar to the descriptions as given.

Since the fictional jesus was rather disdainful of women, and hung around exclusively with men?

Moreover, one of the chief books describing him, keeps repeating the phrase "the disciple whom jesus loved", like a kind of ritual-mantra?

It's pretty safe to presume if jesus were real, he'd be gay.

You say that Jesus is a fictional character and you spew hatred about him.
Yet the easter bunny is definitely a fictional character and is associated with easter (rightly or wrongly) and yet you say nothing.
If the christian churches used mickey mouse to get kids to follow the teachings of Jesus via cartoons, comic etc. Would you be saying mickey mouse is a poof (like KK) or kill mickey and the kids that listen to the Jesus message?
