Eternal Damnation! I love Toronto

Humanist Canada is trying to run a campaign with the message, "You Can Be Good Without God" on buses and in subway stations across Canada over the next few weeks.

The unorthodox campaign ran last fall in London, England, with bus ads that read, "There's probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life."

Martin Beckford of the London Telegraph, reported that the campaign was inspired after Ariane Sherine, a comedy writer, called for a "reassuring counter-advert to religious posters on public transport that atheists believe threaten passengers with eternal damnation."

Cue the hoopla, bring on the clones.

Of course some in cities across Canada are protesting the signs. Halifax Transit says no, TTC says yes, Vancouver still mulling over the question.

BUZZ BUZZ need for a campaign at all. There's been more talk about God than there has been for a long time, and that's good for both sides of the issue.

Here's to the TTC that stands for Free Speech...I hope
