LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - The Central Arkansas Coalition of Reason says On the Move Advertising and the Central Arkansas Transit System is denying their First Amendment right to free speech.
The coalition claims CATA refused to run its ads on Little Rock city buses due to the content of its message.
The United Coalition of Reason is a national organization of loosely-knit atheists, agnostics and free thinkers. They recently developed a chapter in Arkansas and are looking to place an ad on the side of city buses that reads quote:
"Are you good without God? Millions are."
A message CATA's advertising agency says has a history of causing thousands of dollars of bus vandalism in other markets. The coalition's attorney, Gerry Schultz says CATA is being unfair.
"They act like someone is going to hijack an airplane and fly it into a CATA bus and that is just not reasonable," says Schultz.
