Coming soon to Calgary...


The Atheist Bus Ad is going to make its debut in the Chinook City.

I think this is a good thing. A symbol of freedom of speech, open social discussion, and non-discriminatory or censorial ad laws.

Some on the Calgary Herald website commentary are suggesting that they might not take transit anymore because of this. To me, this just seems over-reactionary and petty. It is interesting, however, to see the number of folks who's belief structure is so tender that a little difference of opinion leads to outcry.
