A box truck advertising Christian messages has begun shadowing four buses in Fort Worth, Texas, carrying atheist advertisements.
A week ago, several passenger buses in the Texas city began sporting provocative 2½-by-12-foot banners that read, "Millions of Americans are good without God."
The bus ads were paid for by the secularist group called the Dallas-Fort Worth Coalition of Reason. The group has purchased ads for four buses, and the campaign is expected to last 30 days.
In response, a large blue box truck carrying the messages, "2.1 billion people are good with God," and "I still love you. - God," has started tailing the buses.
Anonymous donors have paid for the Christian response ads.
"The message is simple -- that God loves us, and God loves the atheists," Lime Media's Heath Hill said. Lime Media owns a fleet of trucks used for billboard-style advertising throughout the Dallas-metro area.
"People need to process the information, and either they agree with it or they don't. But they have the right to put it out there if they want to," bus passenger John Leathers said.
"I've got no problem absolutely with their ad or their messaging," Hill explained. "God just wants to let them know that He loves them."
Area church leaders have also responded by calling for a boycott of the Fort Worth Transportation Authority buses for allowing such advertisements on the buses during the Christmas season.
Some churches have also bought ad space on other buses as well.
