Atheist Advertising

I'm a believer, but I support wholeheartedly a subversive ad campaign like this. It's just perfect for those heathens in Europe, but can you imagine anything like this in the US? First, there would be very few people willing to drive one of these moving middle fingers -- either because of their own beliefs or because they don't want to be shot at, spit on, or blown up. Second, we don't really believe in free speech. We are much too afraid of that kind of freedom and would likely level a disproportionately violent and/or hateful response.

Still you gotta love the ad slogan. Ironically, the second part would make a good slogan for a religious ad as well.
