The lady shaking her head in disgust and saying "You can't be good without God"? Yeah, that's why we need this campaign, people. A statement we see as benign and obvious is terrifying to other people.
There's also a an article online with...dun dun dun...an internet poll! I've already emailed it to PZ, but I figured I'd post it as well. Probably the best thing (or worst, if you're anti-atheist) you can do to advertise something atheist related is have a dumb poll about it. A poll crashing at Pharyngula is way more advertisement than people ignoring it at Digg and Reddit.
What is your opinion of an advertisement rejected by Bloomington officials because its message of "You Can Be Good Without God" was deemed too controversial?
