A Christian Voice spokesman acknowledged to the BBC that
“People don’t like being preached at.”
To what do we owe this unaccustomed recognition of reality?
Unfortunately, he hasn’t had a sudden world-view revision. He’s talking about the British Humanist Association Dawkins-backed plan to put an anti-religion advertising campaign on the sides of London buses. Which the Christian Voice chap has oddly decided to define as “preaching.”
The complete slogan reads: “There’s probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.”
I am a bit ambivalent about this. I like the idea of having such slogans on buses and I like the idea that Christian Voice must be a bit nervous that it will actually succeed in deconverting people. But I don’t like the idea of being told what to think, in poster format, by an invisible narrator.
