Car Dealership Radio Ads Targets Atheists

A recent radio ad for a Ford Dealership in Southern California reads:

“…did you know that 86% of Americans say they believe in God? Now, since we all know that 86 out of every 100 of us are Christians who believe in God, we at Kieffe & Sons Ford wonder why we don’t just tell the other 14% to sit down and shut up.”

The ad goes on to say that though it might have offended that other 14% of Americans, tough noogies because “it’s called free speech.” You remember free speech, don’t you? It’s that thing where you tell people who disagree with you to “sit down and shut up.”

  1. Wow. That seems… remarkably shortsighted, for one thing.

    Who knows, maybe they’ll get flocks of bible-thumpers knocking down their doors. But they’ll turn off tons of people, too.

    Sometimes, publicity IS the brass ring, I guess.
