The Spokane Coalition of Reason launched a billboard campaign in Spokane that was dubbed the "atheist bus ads" by the press. The question "Are You Good Without God?", and the statement, "Millions Are", was displayed on the sides of eleven STA buses during the month of September. The campaign was considered controversial by some, and offensive by others, but according to the Spokane Coalition of Reason, the goal was simply to reach out to atheists and agnostitcs in the community who may not realize that there are other like-minded people in the area. The Spokane Coalition of Reason is an alliance of three nontheistic groups in the Spokane area. I spoke to the President of one of those groups, the Spokane Secular Society, Thomas Brown. We discussed the billboard campaign, the controversy it inspired, and what the Spokane Coalition of Reason is all about. This program originally aired on 9/26/11.
