Buses roll on, but God took a cab

Atheists 2, bus companies 1:

An atheist group that recently won its fight to buy ad space for signs on Bloomington city buses was denied in Indianapolis.


The group, known as the Indiana Bus Campaign, filed a federal lawsuit that said Bloomington Transit's policy of not allowing controversial material violated the First Amendment.


Before the case got to court, the transit company agreed to allow the ads, 6News' Renee Jameson reported.

The same group is spreading its message on buses in South Bend, but IndyGo told them that it wouldn't allow the ad.

Atheists in Bloomington and South Bend now have the comfort of knowing there are others like them. They have a support group, so they realize they belong to something bigger than themselves. They can ride the bus around and around and read the "You Can Be Good Without God" signs over and over until they feel at peace.

Atheists in Indianapolis remain alone, insignificant little specks in the universe, bereft of all sympathy and hope of understanding. Can they possibly be good without "You Can Be Good Without Good" to inspire them?

Perhaps now atheists can aspire to radio programming that dominates the low end of the FM dial like the Christians do. I was driving around Indiana yesterday and hit the scan button and would run across 3 or 4 stations in a row with some Godly message or anti-Democrat message or combination thereof down in the low 90s. I didn't spend a lot of time listening, but I gathered that they were keenly concerned about being persecuted. Poor persecuted souls. Hopefully they can fight off the atheist menace.

I think atheists ought to have the gonads to put a sign on a bus that says "Allah was a child molester and a false prophet" and see what reaction they get.

Suppose we'll see that anytime soon? Probably not, they actually shoot people or blow sh&t up. Christians just hog the airwaves, right Doug?
