"If they choose to run religious ads and not atheist ads on their own property, that's not hypocrisy - it's being true to their own beliefs. Beliefs they are fully entitled to hold in a free society."

I don't agree. The article says that the reasons they gave were that they didn't want to cause offence. They didn't say they don't want to cause offence to religious people. Therefore if they had put up posters in the past which were offensive to irreligious people, then in my opinion they are being hypocritical.

By the way, I do accept that they have the right to display (or not) whatever posters they want, I would just like to see some sincerity about it.
