    I understand the point you are making. It's not about whether they ought to be able to do what they're doing it's about whether or not they are carrying out their campaign in a manner that includes respect and sensitivity.

    One of the things that irks me about this particular campaign is that it mimics many of the things that I find most offensive about proselytizing in general (and make no mistake this IS proselytizing, just as much as church-backed billboard would be). It overreaches; it presumes the absolute correctness and universal applicability of its own assertions. On that basis it is pretty much guaranteed to be both an overstatement of a claim and insensitive.

    I'd like nothing better than to never ever again be confronted with a billboard or other piece of advertising that presumes to tell me what I ought or ought not to believe. I am quite capable to coming to conclusions on the basis of my own research and my own thought process, thank you very much.
