Local print media – “COLTS stands firm on atheist ad”

0 minutes, 42 seconds Read

David Singleton, writing for the Times-Tribune, published a story following today’s County of Lackawanna Transit System (COLTS) board meeting. I attended the meeting thinking that COLTS would reconsider its refusal of the “Atheists.” bus ad sponsored by the NEPA Freethought Society …but my hopes were shattered when Timothy Hinton — one of COLTS’ solicitors — said that COLTS is standing by its original decision to refuse our ads.

Read the Times-Tribune article for more information.
…and weigh in in the comments section because it is getting quite silly. Once again, people aren’t realizing that this is a free speech issue and not a religious argument. The whole point of this ad was to be as inoffensive as possible and, for some reason, the NEPA Freethought Society is being labeled as being antagonistic and a ‘hate group’ by some commenters.
We’re not giving up.
