Speaking of bus adverts…

This whole brouhaha about the Atheist Bus advertising campaign reminded me of something I came across recently. Sonya Renee, an American spoken word artist, encountered a piece of advertising on a bus sponsored by religious Pro-Life organisations and this is her response performed at the World Poetry Slam Finals 2006. Be prepared for fast-paced, hard-hitting delivery and use of the s*** word here and there. It’s an incredible performance, go watch it!

    Just as the brouhaha over the buses dies down, we’re creating a new one

    if you’ve been following the campaign on Comment is Free, you’ll know that this Humanist Society of Scotland (HSS) campaign is simply designed to show the public and the BBC that secular thinkers have something to offer TFTD. We hope that they’ll visit Thought for the World listen to the podcasts and if they like what they hear, sign our petition to open up TFTD to secular thinkers and – if they think it would be good to have a regular secular alternative TFTD, make a donation so we can continue to produce them on a more regular basis

    I hope you enjoy the podcasts, and that you’ll support the campaign

    Tim
