LITTLE ROCK Advertisements questioning the existence of God have gone up on the exterior of 18 Central Arkansas Transit Authority buses, the group sponsoring the campaign said Tuesday.
The ads - which say "Are you good without God? Millions are" - were placed by the Central Arkansas Coalition of Reason after a dispute between it and CATA that ended with a federal court decision.
A private agency that sells advertising for CATA in February cited the risk of vandalism as reason for a requirement that the group pay a large damage deposit. The Coalition of Reason sued in federal court and a judge ruled the advertising agency had violated its free speech rights by declining to apply the same standards to the atheist ad as it applies to religious ones.
The ads are scheduled to run for four weeks.
