Only in Seattle
A couple weeks ago, I talked with both the Freedom From Religion Foundation and with Metro Transit about FFRF’s anti-religion bus campaign they’re running this Christmas season.
As I said on the show, I don’t blame FFRF for its campaign. they’re athiests – doing what athiests do.
I do, however, blame Metro Transit for allowing this campaign. Now that the busboards have hit the streets, many of my Christian listeners have contacted me about how offensive this campaign is to them.
One listener sent me a photo of a busboard that I have seen all over the streets the last week or so.
I continue to believe that there is no way Metro would ever allow a campaign that is so offensive towards blacks… towards gays… towards hispanics, Asians, transsexuals, or hermaphrodites.
But our government-run transit agency has no problem with a campaign that targets people of faith. The last acceptable targets of government-endorsed bigotry.
Only in Seattle.
