Two happenings in the last week cast new light on Metro’s advertising guidelines that ban political and religious displays, and thus rejected a Catholic Christmas ad campaign.
My November 30 article covering a lawsuit against Washington DC’s transit system began: “Keep the cash in Christmas. That was the message the Catholic Archdiocese of Washington received from the D.C. Metropolitan Transit Authority when the archdiocese attempted to buy ad space on Metro buses for its ‘Find The Perfect Gift’ campaign.”
The takeaway? Muslims may react violently to Christmas ads.
