18 Central Arkansas Transit buses are now carrying the disputed ads bearing the legend:
“Are You Good Without God? Millions are.”
They’ll run for four weeks, including during the Oct. 14-23 run of the highly attended Arkansas State Fair. News release follows from the Central Arkansas Coalition of Reason. The bus ads will cost $5,216.
Under terms of an injunction issued by federal Judge Susan Webber Wright, the group had to post a $15,000 bond to cover potential damage to buses and ads. The bus company and its ad agency had originally refused to run the ads, fearing backlash, though they had accepted church advertising previously.
