UK public transit ads promoting evangelical atheism

Atheist ad on side of London bus
A new ad campaign launched on British public transit systems today promoting atheism. The campaign was spearheaded by readers of England’s Guardian newspaper website Comment Is Free, who together raised more than £135,000 ($230,000 CAD) to pay for the campaign (they say their initial goal was £5,500 and 30 buses, a deliberately modest goal that they have far exceeded, as obviously intended). In London there are 200 buses sporting the ads, and more featuring quotations from prominent atheists throughout history (Emily Dickinson, Albert Einstein) will be put up in the London Underground next week. More are on the way in Manchester, Edinburgh, Glasgow, York, Cardiff, and several other cities.
Is the world ready for evangelical atheists? We’re about to find out.
