Atheist Ad Campaign Refused by Pattison Group

Poster ad campaign by atheist group refused by Pattison Outdoors
An atheist group is considering a human rights complaint after it says a billboard company refused to run its advertisements in Vancouver.

The Centre for Inquiry Canada created a billboard design depicting a smiling woman alongside a few phrases written in a biblical style.

“Jenn 13:1,” it reads. "Praying won’t help. Doing will.

Below the group's name, the ad says: "Without God. We're all good."

Atheist ads also vanished from some Kelowna buses.

Pat O’Brien, board member for The Centre for Inquiry Canada, said the organization submitted the ads to Pattison Outdoor but was told they were unacceptable.

God bless you Jim Pattison and your staff for not running this offensive ad. I'm sure they will find someone more greedy and less discerning to hang up their posters, but I'm proud that it wasn't you. 

Computer savvy Christians with some time on their hands can find a ministry in the "comments" section of news stories like this one on CBC.CA/news/. A calm mind, a gentle spirit, and a lot of patience may make a great deal of difference in someone's life. And perhaps, God will give you a specific word for someone who will read your comment.

God bless.
