.- Although some are claiming that âreligious intoleranceâ has been the main enemy of the atheist bus ad campaign launched Monday in Spain, indifference seems to be more of an enemy, the newspaper La Gaceta reports.
La Gaceta, which covered the first day of the ad campaign launched by the Union of Atheists and Freethinkersâ of Spain, says that despite âso much publicity and so much ink spilled in the media,â most Spaniards reacted with indifference to the ads. The ads read: âThereâs probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.â
âSo much noise, and yet the ads will only be seen on two of the almost 100 lines that the Barcelona Metropolitan Transit System operates,â the newspaper observed.
âYesterday,â the report continued, âresidents in Barcelona generally showed indifference to the campaign, even though every newspaper, radio and television station, both in Catalonia and in Madrid, covered it in recent days.â
âAt bus stops, most travelers were not aware of the ads that were created by the atheist association, and the few people that did have some knowledge showed total indifference and only wanted the bus to travel as quickly as possible in order to get around,â La Gaceta said.
