I was sitting staring off into space while riding on the subway the other day. It’s what I do when I’m not reading Plato 🙂
But seriously, folks, I wasn’t doing much of anything when my eye was drawn to this ad for prayer. Seemed like a decent and simple idea in this era of apps and tweets and texts: tell us what you want us to pray for and we will. Ah, but this was an ad placed by a church and so it was immediately followed by a warning: “The display of this advertisement does not imply MTA’s (The Metropolitan Transportation Authority) endorsement of any views expressed.”
Okay, I get it. Separation of church and state and all that. It’s just that the MTA does not require a similar warning for any other ad in the subway — ads for things like breast augmentation, pimple removal, stupid television programs and tons and tons of ads for hard liquor.
So by not having a disclaimer on any of those ads, is the MTA implicitly telling us they DO endorse breast augmentation etc. That’s the way it seems to me.
Oh the stupidity of the PC times in which we lives…..maybe we are all a bunch of boobs.
