Not advertising of a product, or even a service… but advertising a particular idea; namely, that God probably doesn’t exist.
Apparently the British Humanist Association are running a pretty successful campaign on buses in London with the slogan: “There’s probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.” The campaign has been so successful, according to the BBC, that it will appear on the insides of buses as well.
Always one for a slogan, I particularly like this one and think the cardies at our local church school should be rebranded forthwith. I say this in all hypocrisy, the day before dutifully attending the school’s harvest festival celebration at the local church.
My reasoning is, if you fill your kids with rubbish about Father Christmas and tooth fairies, you may as well throw in Christ, the Lord and the Holy Spirit. When you choose to tell them that, well, some people believe in God and the rest of us believe in a rational world where evidence is usually a better bet than blind faith is, of course, up to each family. And it’s a bit too long even for the side of a bus.
