This made me super happy, but then I went to look at the comments on the new's facebook page and got super super sad...
Agreed, Shannon. Some pretty hostile folks there.But let's hope it just seems that way because all the people that thought, "Hey, that's pretty cool..." weren't so riled up that they felt the need to post lengthy remarks.
It seems like there are a LOT of people commenting on the FB page (WICD) that are extremely ignorant/misinformed on the nature of our Constitution's 1st Amendment. Very sad.
I didn't realize so many ignorant/misinformed/naive people to be on facebook commenting on bus-ads .. Sad situation indeed ..
Shannon, take heart. The vocal dissenters have legitimized (and may promote) our campaign more than anything else could.If they are so close-minded as to find offense here, then we have achieved a different but important goal: to confront them with our existence and demand for equal regard. They can be outraged.. but no one can maintain rage forever.we're here, we're queer, get used to it.
Well said, Ed. I have to wonder if these people will call MTD and complain.
Hey, I just stumbled upon an article about these bus ads and think it's really awesome what you're doing in Champaign. I'm a senior at Charleston High School and co-founded a Secular Humanist Society there last year. It's really great to see big things like this going on so close to where I am. Keep up the good work!
Hey Nick, it's great to hear from another secular student leader. It's awesome that you were able to start a club in high school, as many of us don't get the opportunity to be part of a secular community until college.
