Good With Or Without God? Well, You Can't Advertise It On a Fort Worth Municipal Bus

After outrage from some Christian groups, the Fort Worth Transportation Authority has revised its policy on accepting advertisements on its buses. What caused the uproar? A series of atheist ads bought for the holiday season; the ads are part of a campaign that started in the UK in 2008. Gone from Fort Worth buses are all political ads, faith based ads, tobacco and alcohol ads (other than beer and wine) and sex ads, as well as hate speech and defamatory ads. See here for a press release describing the new policy.
