Advertisments for the Banning of Religion

September 9, 2011

This video is from an Australian show, The Gruen Transfer, wherein they have a segment called The Pitch. They ask for viewers to submit ideas of something “unsellable” for ad agencies to try to sell. Past ideas have included the invasion of New Zealand or the euthanization of everyone over 80. This episode the controversial topic was the banning of religion. They actually had agencies decline the competition for the first time with this topic!

Anyway, while I don’t support the banning of religion, I do think that the ads are very persuasive for the abandoning of religion. (And that is an idea that I wholeheartedly support.)  I’m with the first two judges on which one I liked the most.

(Thanks to The Friendly Atheist for this one)

    Be careful what you wish for. I suspect that when the time comes for ridding the earth of those who call themselves Christians, those doing the eliminating will be placing atheist heads on the same chopping block.

      Thanks! I thought it was a great ad, even without considering that I agree completely with the message (but the message makes it even more awesome, to me)!
