Arkansas Buses Must Carry Non-Believers' Ads; But $15,000 Bond Required

An Arkansas federal district judge on Thursday issued a preliminary injunction requiring the Central Arkansas Transit Authority to allow the United Coalition of Reason (UCR) to purchase ads on the outside of 18 public buses. However UCR will be required to post a $15,000 bond to cover damage that may result from vandalism to the buses. The ads read: "Are you good without God? Millions are." The advertising agency involved had demanded a higher bond, while UCR had offered to post a $10,000 bond. AP as well as the Daily Caller report on the decision. Meanwhile, according to the Christian Post, Christians in the community are creating their own series of ads to run on buses, and they say they will picket any bus carrying the non-believers' ads. Bill Wheeler, a Christian leader in Little Rock, said: "We are planning to create a newsletter and start gathering our resources to fight ads that create chaos in our society. These ads have nothing to do with free speech. It has to do with corruption and pure evil." [Thanks to Scott Mange for the lead.]
