Where I Resort to Linking

So, back in September Chalicechick posted a link to a funny exchange between church signs.
And it was fun to imagine. Well, apparently a possibly less funny version is occuring in the United Kingdom. Apparently the atheists started it, with bus ads stating such things as, "There's probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life."
And I just want to take a moment to step onto my soapbox and say to the people who find that ad annoying, our society, here in the US, and my recollection is that it was more so in the UK, we have such a predominance of not only a theistic but Christian viewpoint that constantly gets excused by people saying well people are just expressing their faith. So, here, you go. Agree or disagree, this is the atheists expressing their faith. /off soapbox
Okay, so in response (after trying to get the ads blocked), some Christian groups are responding with their own signs. (It's fairly amusing if you clock the links, they have also mimicked the layout and design used in the atheist campaign. My personal favorite "response" bus ad is the Russian Orthodox Church's, "There IS a God, BELIEVE. Don't worry and enjoy your life." Can't wait to see how this ends.

A few of us in the UK thought about our own campaign: 'God or no God, find love and meaning with the Unitarians!'
