Atheist buses

"You wait ages for an atheist bus, then 800 come along at once"
- Ariane Sherine, the woman behind the atheist bus adverts.

The campaign to raise funds to put adverts on buses bearing the legend "There's probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life" was launched in October. Now 200 buses will be taking to the streets in London, with 600 more around the rest of the country.

I wonder how long it will be before we have industrial action by someone refusing to drive one on religious grounds?

  1. Presumably the Churches will eventually retaliate with a bus campaign of their own. On what grounds will an atheist refuse to drive such an adorned bus?

    Oddly when I was up having dinner this evening with The Family, Martin (home today from a visit to Scotland) had brought a news cutting on the subject. C'est trés interessant, n'est pas.
