Get Over Yourselves

Posted on Wed, Feb 25, 2009 at 6:30 AM

I can't believe that the group who had their banner rejected by Metro Transit are citing an abuse of freedom of speech. I'm of course talking about the banner that says “There’s probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.”. Now on a personal level, I, for the most part, agree with this statement, but there's no doubt that there are thousands that don't. Now before anyone gets on their idealistic high horse and rebuts saying "Metro Transit puts other ads that are just as or more offensive" I also agree, however, if a decision was made to not allow ads for Bacardi Rum (for example), do you think Bacardi would cry fowl claiming Metro Transit is not allowing their freedom of speech? To me, allowing this banner would be no better than allowing banners advertising religion, or anti-abortion messages. The side of a bus is no place for any of these ads. Grow up.
