    I'm glad the "christian" (non-capitalized on purpose) lobby is helping us spread the word that bigotry will not be tolerated, as that ad company will soon learn. icon_wink.gif

    the thing that annoys me the most is, christians were gladly given the privledge to advertise for 'judgement day' on the 21st of may, (which clearly ended the world) yet safe sex campaigns can simply NOT be heard of.

    Think it's terrible that they took those ads down just because one stupid vile christian group wanted them taken down.

    Hopefully there'll be enough support to get them put back up.

    They're just pissed off that the rapture didn't take them. Now they've turned to evil and need a hard spanking for being hypocritical douches who secretly wanna fuck a dude.

    ""I've been labelled homophobic. This has absolutely nothing to do with gay couples," spokeswoman Wendy Francis said.

    "This has nothing to do with anything other than another condom ad in a bus shelter, where the children are catching buses to school and billboards where their parents are stopping at lights.

    "I will continue to fight sexual imagery in our outdoor advertising until we can get it removed.""

    Soooo, next on the chopping block is just about every ad for every clothing company that's been posted in the city, right?

    Because if it's about sexual imagery in public spaces (which I "can" understand) in order for it to be unbiased there needs to be actual effort put into removing those as well.

    Otherwise, it really is just thinly veiled homophobia.

    Ya know, I'm kind of disappointed the rapture didn't happen - at least then the proponents of this kind of bullshit bigotry would realize that God's on everyone's side, and morality is not rigidly defined by the archaic doctrines mankind espouses as "the word of God".

    With so many to choose from, I sincerely doubt any are actually "on target".
