Athiest Group Wins Right To Pursue Federal Lawsuit Against Bus Company

08.12.11 | Sarah Harnisch

 An athiest group has won the right to take a Little Rock, Arkansas bus company to federal court after a judge allowed the case to proceed yesterday. The group wants to pay to put ads on the sides of city buses. The ads would read "are you good without God? Millions are." The bus company already runs dozens of ads for Christian groups. Athiests call it a free speech issue. But the bus company says it's just worried about damage to their buses from vandals with the controversial ads posted on their buses. They have asked for more insurance cash. Supporters say the bus company is private, and they have the right to put anything they want on their own buses.
