after the sleeping comes the waking up.

Can you call this evangelism?

Posted by c. wagner on October 21, 2009

Some New Yorkers may want to reconsider exclaiming “Thank God” when arriving at their destination subway station beginning next Monday.

Or at least that’s what a coalition of eight atheist organizations are hoping, having purchased a month-long campaign that will place their posters in a dozen busy subway stations throughout Manhattan.

The advertisements ask the question, written simply over an image of a blue sky with wispy white clouds: “A million New Yorkers are good without God. Are you?”

This seems to have been inspired by a similar advertising campaign that began in London in January. The British campaign was in turn inspired by a set of ads sponsored by a Christian group.

If one group can use advertising on public transport to evangelize, other groups should be able to do the same. It’s only fair.
