Hawkeye GOP: Atheists deserve freedom of speech

Excerpted from this post at Hawkeye GOP

I saw over at the Des Moines Register that Des Moines Area Rapid
Transit (DART) has pulled ads placed by an atheist group off their
buses. The ads said: "Don't believe in God? You are not alone." The
ads were sponsored by a group called Iowa Atheists & Freethinkers.
According to the Register, DART began receiving complaints as soon as
the ads went up. As a Christian, I don't see the ad as offensive. The
Bible tells me that there are people who don't believe in God. They
are indeed not alone. My concern is that if DART can reject their ad
because of complaints over its religious content, perhaps my ad will
be next.
