Calgary Bus Wars: This Time Its Theological

Now that the city of Calgary has given the go-ahead for local buses to carry posters from the "atheist bus campaign", Syed Soharwardy of the Islamic Supreme Council of Canada has decided to run a counter-campaign:

"People with atheist beliefs are coming forward aggressively and with force to promote their ideas, and it's important for them to know people of faith are united."
Soharwardy is calling on believers from all religions to help craft an appropriate response to the atheist message, "There is probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life."
He's collecting ideas for a pro-God slogan at contact@islamicsupremecouncil.com, and plans to have the ads ready to run concurrently with the anti-God message.
Use this slogan generator to create pro-God poster of your own, and then send it to the Imam. Now, Mr. Soharwardy is a really sweet & holy guy, who recently finished a cross country multi-faith walk against violence, so if your poster is filthy enough, you might just be able to make him squeal.

OK, here goes.

Maybe I won't send it after all.

I fully expect any muslim backed 'god' ads to explode the heads of the usual suspects as much as an atheist ad.

I'm waiting for zen koan, "Great Mystery" wisdom from aboriginal beliefs, wiccan blessings, Ramayana quotes, FSM, etc alongside invitations to drop in to the nearest place of that faith's worship.

Level that playing field and listen to the screaming of the dethroned monopoly.

"God exists, now go sleep with your sister?"

"If there is no god, why did you stone your 15 year old then?"

"The power of Christ compels you."

"There is a god, now go covet thy neighbours ipod."

"Believe in God or he'll (read: we'll) smite you."
