AN advertising campaign questioning the existence of God is being launched in Spanish cities during the next 10 days despite angry protests from the Catholic Church.
The advertisements, emblazoned on the side of public transport buses, will initially be seen in Barcelona and Seville, but are expected to quickly follow in Madrid, Bilbao and Palma.
The Spanish campaign, organised by the Union of Atheists and Free-thinkers (UAL), mirrors a similar pre-Christmas drive in London, which caused uproar in the UK capital. Following the launch in London, cash gifts from sympathisers enabled the message to be placed on 800 buses in different regions of the UK.
The Spanish campaign message, Probablemente Dios no existe, asi que deja de preocuparte y disfruta de la vida, (There's probably no God, now stop worrying and enjoy your life), will cost 16'000 euros and the UAL is appealing for donations so it can be rolled out across other major cities, including Palma.
It is in response to a Christian website that promised non-believers an eternity of torment in a lake of fire.
