FOXNews.com – Why Believe in a God? Ad Campaign Launches on D.C. Buses – Local News | News Articles | National News | US News

13 Nov

Ads proclaiming, “Why believe in a god? Just be good for goodness sake,” will appear on Washington, D.C., buses starting next week and running through December. The American Humanist Association unveiled the provocative $40,000 holiday ad campaign Tuesday.

In lifting lyrics from “Santa Claus is Coming to Town,” the Washington-based group is wading into what has become a perennial debate over commercialism, religion in the public square and the meaning of Christmas.

“We are trying to reach our audience, and sometimes in order to reach an audience, everybody has to hear you,” said Fred Edwords, spokesman for the humanist group. “Our reason for doing it during the holidays is there are an awful lot of agnostics, atheists and other types of non-theists who feel a little alone during the holidays because of its association with traditional religion.”

    Why believe in God Ad Campaign comment. They are not being very “good for goodness sake” when they knowingly are offending so many.

    “One nation under God”…if you don’t like it…find some where else to live.
