"An atheist group in Canada has claimed that a Vancouver billboard company has violated their human rights by refusing to run advertisements carrying 'No God' slogans in the city's downtown area," Christian Post reports.
"The Centre for Inquiry Canada (CFI) plans to put ads featuring a young woman with the words, 'Praying won't help. Doing will' and 'Without God, we're all good,' in downtown Vancouver. However, Pattison Outdoor, the billboard company they contacted, says the adverts do not meet their guidelines," according to CP.
"We made every effort to avoid this situation by making the ads as soft and as gentle as possible," CP quotes Pat O'Brien of CFI telling Canada's Global News as saying. "We just promote our particular world view, which is a humanistic, secular world view," O'Brien says.
CP reports that the atheists' claim "their message is meant to be pro-secular, not anti-religion."
