Secularists in Indiana wanted to run a simple message on buses in Bloomington: “You can be good without god”. The transit authority refused their money because the message was “too controversial”. Too controversial? Is it their position that it is controversial that atheists can be good? I would love to see a debate on that issue: let’s line up everyone in the transit authority who thinks atheists are always going to be evil, get their names and faces and opinions on record, and see if this really is controversial.
Since it is unlikely that anyone will ‘fess up to that, we’re going to have to settle for asserting ourselves on a poll.
