My irony meter just burst...

My irony meter burst when I read this story, apparently Stephen Green of the Christian Voice organisation is complaining to the ASA (Advertising Standards Authority) that the currently running "Atheist Bus Campaign" is not truthful or substantiated i.e. the statement "there's probably no god" is a lie.

I'm sure most rational people will have a similar response, i.e. laughter and a rolling of their eyes; however as per the Dover Pennsylvania (USA) case in 2006 that demolished another whack-a-loon religious organisation (The Discovery Institute) over intelligent design, some part of me would love this to actually go to trial. A formal public examination of Mr Green would I'm sure expose a whole raft of ignorance, lunacy and sexual deviance as is his "kind"; at the very minimum it would provide Atheists with an even more rich and fertile source of absurd assertions from the ignorant Mr Green that could come in handy in the future when he inevitably moves on to bully the next group of people with whom he disagrees.

Apparently in another irony shattering interview Mr Green was heard to say that the bus campaign wouldn't be received very well by the public because "nobody liked being preached to", amen to that Mr Green!

I am put in mind of this cartoon from the excellent Jesus and Mo series available here.
