The website listed at the bottom of the ad went to a page that stated, in part, “We know from passages throughout Scripture that God hates homosexual acts….” It was part of a campaign of 24 religious questions being posed by Bus Stop Bible Studies, a Toronto-based group that runs transit ads in a number of Ontario cities, TheStar.com reports.
It was xtra.ca that wrote this Wednesday, last week while I was on Queen West walking to the Beaver for lunch, a Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) streetcar rumbled by, its side emblazoned with a bright blue advertisement. The ad read, “Does God care if I’m gay?” and encouraged viewers to text “whycare” to 74747 to find an answer. It’s part of a new campaign by Bus Stop Bible Studies (BSBS), a charity that posts bible passages on public transit.
