Protester burns a bus
Arkansas Christian edits a bus ad

-Headline of the day-
"Atheists Told To Buy 'Insane Christian' Insurance To Protect Atheist Bus Ads."

A group of Arkansas atheists want to buy some bus ads and turn everyone into godless heathens and probably socialists. So they contacted an ad agency and encountered a little problem -- the agency wants extra money in case someone vandalizes the buses.

The group got an email from the agency that spelled out their worries. "Arkansas is the buckle of the Bible Belt and I can easily envision zealots or upstanding citizens with a strong faith acting out," the email read. Which is weird, because once you start vandalizing buses, the words "upstanding citizens" no longer applies.

The agency and the bus company obviously "trust the atheists in this community more so than the religious," says LeeWood Thomas, the group's spokesman, "otherwise the churches that advertise would have that extra insurance premium added to their total cost."

Whatever, you hellbound wretch. (Wonkette)
