Controversial Ads Placed in NYC's Subway System

billkozyBillkozy on 12/08/2009

ControversialAdsPlacedinNYCsSubwaySystem Photo An advertising campaign touting atheism appeared in 12 New York City subway systems in late October 2009, and apparently it incurred the ire of many New Yorkers. Running for one month, the ads cost $25,000 and are being financed by an anonymous donor. They are meant to send the message to similar non-believers that they are not alone according to a spokesman for the Center for Inquiry: "We want to show New Yorkers there is a community out there where you can find like-minded people. There seems to be a groundswell of people who, at the very least, are curious about secularism."

A spokesman for the MTA (Metropolitan Transit Authority) said that they only prohibit nudity and vulgar language in subway advertisements, and that their guidelines protect freedom of speech and religion.

Here is a quiz about that ad and five other advertisements that were placed over the years that raised eyebrows of many passengers and in some cases their wrath as well.

Good Luck on the quiz, and please rate it afterwards if you have a chance. Thanks!
