Atheist Bus Ads Go Up in Rhode Island

Tony Houston, the group’s coordinator, made clear why these ads are so important (via email):

“Today’s launch of the Rhode IslandCoR is a great day for real religious liberty, not just for Rhode Island, but for all Americans. The founder of Rhode Island, Roger Williams, was a theistic man who championed “soul liberty” and despised the “monstrous partiality” of sectarian dogma. Religious Rhode Islanders often overlook Roger Williams the secularist, but Williams knew that you couldn’t have freedom of religion without freedom from religion. He knew that heresy assumed that the accuser is the one who got it right.”
