So what did you expect?

The Christian Century reports that a media CEO is creating London bus signs affirming God:

The head of a London-based Russian television station plans to counter a recent atheist poster campaign on London buses by funding even larger placards proclaiming the existence of God.

Public transport is becoming a popular vehicle worldwide for the devout faithful and atheists to proclaim their beliefs. Nonbelievers are seeking to proclaim their atheism on Toronto buses, but in Zurich a similar effort was blocked due to local transit regulations.

"People like me are naturally guarded when they see atheist [movements] like this, since we know what atheism did to Russia, almost destroying our country’s essence," Alexander Korobko, director of the Russian Hour satellite channel, said in an interview.

The 38-year-old entrepreneur was speaking during preparations for the March 1 launch of the London campaign promoting God. These follow the January campaign by atheist Richard Dawkins and the British Humanist Association, which featured placards with the slogan, "There’s probably no God: Now stop worrying and enjoy your life."

Said Korobko: "When I saw the atheist campaign, it obviously surprised me— not because it was atheist, but because it was completely illogical." As he put it, "To presume or imply you can only enjoy life and stop worrying if you don’t believe in God is an oxymoron. In reality, people who believe in God tend to worry less and be far more optimistic."
