Freethought ads to run on city buses

“There probably is no God, so stop worrying and enjoy your life.”

“There probably is no God, so stop worrying and enjoy your life.”

This is the slogan the Freethought Association of Canada plans to put on Calgary buses within two months, spokesperson Katie Kish said.

“We want to get people talking so people who don’t believe can understand Christians and vice versa,” Kish said.

The group chose to run ads in Alberta because, “it’s the most religious province in the country,” Kish said.

Father Leighton Lee of the Cathedral Church of the Redeemer doesn’t think this is the way to open a dialogue.

“Their technique seems very in-your-face … It just gets people’s hackles up,” Lee said. “But we can’t deny rights we enjoy to other groups because we don’t agree with (them).”

The group has already run the ads on Toronto transit where there was critical and positive feedback, said Kish.
