← Atheist bus ad campaign provokes bitterness in Barcelona

mixmastergaz: Has Eamonn Holmes waded in on the issue of the atheist bus campaign or was the cliched moan you mentioned above about something else(qm) It seems odd that he characterised this an attack on Christianity specifically. Obviously it's an attack on any monotheistic religion!
Yes, he apparently made some comment wondering whether we'd have got away with it if it had been any religion other than Christianity we'd been bashing - I've seen it online, but I can't remember where just now and I'm late for work so can't stop to check.

The fact that it was Eamonn Holmes is pretty irrelevant - as you say, intellectually he's no Nicky Campbell, is he? ;-)))

But it's a response I'm hearing a lot - I lurk on a Christian Beliefs forum elsewhere and in their their discussion of the atheist buses, "They wouldn't do it about Islam" featured quite prominently.

Interesting, isn't it, how any follower of a monotheistic religion must AUTOMATICALLY assume it's their god we're talking about!
