Atheist bus ad draws Xian fire
The astonishingly successful Atheist bus ad campaign, which has already raised four times its target in less than a day, has drawn an equally astonishing – but for different reasons – quote from Stephen “Bird Shit” Green, head of the failed fundamentalist lobby group Stephen Green’s Voice (aka Christian Voice).
Commenting on the proposed ad, which will read “There’s probably no god. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life”, the irrepressible bible-thumper said:
Bendy-buses, like atheism, are a danger to the public at large.
I should be surprised if a quasi-religious advertising campaign like this did not attract graffiti.
People don’t like being preached at. Sometimes it does them good, but they still don’t like it.
UPDATE: Brand Republic has another quote from Green:
How funny that Richard Dawkins is so scared of the threat which evangelical Christianity poses to atheism and his beloved Darwinism that he has to fund a campaign to attack God.
How old it he, eleven? Accusing someone of being “scared” and then pretending to be amused about it is primary playground stuff.

We wonder how this atheist fundraiser compares to he hapless Green’s “Please save me from bankruptcy” campaign?
