Recently, I read about this happening on buses in London. Now it will happen here in Wash DC. From an article in today's Wash Post (Nove 11), it seems buses (and maybe the trains?) in Wash DC will be following London's lead. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/11/11/AR2008111102522.html ......At a news conference at the National Press Club yesterday, members of the American Humanist Association -- one of the country's leading atheist and agnostic organizations -- explained what they're up to. "Our message is that all of us can have moral values as a natural result of who we are as a species and who we have become as a civilization," said Fred Edwords, the association's director of communications. "Each one of us knows what it means, generally, to be ethical." ....The atheists said they aren't trying to proselytize -- a funny concept -- just reaching out to what they say is an increasing number of people who do not believe in a deity. "We're striking while the iron is hot," Fred said. What iron? Well, Bill Maher's movie, "Religulous." And books by the likes of Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchins and Philip Pullman. ========================MORE============================ The thing is, Metro transportation is, I believe, a quasi-government funded system. So I wonder how they get away with this or if they would refuse posters urging people to believe in Christ.
