Earlier this year, atheist bus ads went up in Barcelona, Spain, thanks to the country’s Union of Atheists and Freethinkers.
It’s a good thing they got the ads in then. Because they won’t be able to do it anymore.
Promedios, the company in charge of the advertising, has decided to ban all ads causing “social controversy.”
So should atheists fight back? Not quite. The first victims of the ban aren’t the atheists:
The first hit has been a campaign by the ultra-Catholic religious group E-cristians against divorce and abortion.
Well, as long as they enforce the policy and apply it to religious groups as much as atheist ones, I’m fine with it.
Though I still don’t think an ad which translates to “There’s probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life” is very controversial.
