A letter sent today to the Advertising Standards Authority:
I am writing to complain about an advertising slogan soon to be seen on the side of a buses in central London. It proclaims, in large letters, that there DEFINITELY is a God. I find this interesting, as my long-term agnostic stance would most definitely be softened if there really was a God. I have always found the thought of eternity in Heaven an attractive prospect (who wouldn’t), but the arguments for God (all of them, I am not discriminating by picking on any one of them) seemed weak at best, and laughable at worst.
So as you can imagine, I was delighted to see this advert. Imagine, proof at last that there was, without doubt, DEFINITELY a God watching over us!
So I got in touch with The Christian Party to enquire about this new proof, and to see if I could help spread the word of it’s arrival. It is after all, a momentous occasion in the history of our planet. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of that?
Do you know what I found out? NOTHING has changed! I know, it was shocking to me too. In fact, all I found was a suggested donation on their home page of TWO HUNDRED POUNDS! I found nothing to show there definitely is a God. Nothing whatsoever.
I can therefore only conclude that this is an elaborate money-making scam. Perhaps it is one of those pyramid things I have seen on Watchdog. I don’t know. All I know is that there will be many consumers that, like me, fall into this trap after seeing an advertisement promising there DEFINITELY is a God. I believe this is what you call “false advertising” and I would like to know what you plan to do about it.
I will post any response I receive.
