In an inevitable next step, atheists in the UK are advertising (read about it here). Now in America, there might be a few Christian groups that freak out about this… boycott buses or something… but there some in the UK that have actually donated to the campaign. Any talk about God in the “public square” is going to make people think. This is also, ironically, what the atheists want people to do as well. I don’t know that I would donate to the cause, but I think I tend to agree.
First of all, I don’t think we should be surprised, shocked, or offended that some atheists might buy some signs to hang on a bus… or a billboard… or the newspaper… or wherever. Christians do it all the time. (Is anyone still under the illusion that the West is “Christian”? I’d say post-christian, at best.) Second of all, if people who don’t believe in God want to bring up the subject of God, then it’s all the easier to enter into the conversation.
What do you think?
