San Francisco Muni buses getting more anti-Islamic ads, this time with anti-gay message
by Will Reisman
More controversial anti-Islamic advertisements are scheduled to be coming to Muni buses, with the new messages quoting anti-gay rhetoric from Islamic leaders. The head of the initiative said local gay leaders' criticism of previous ads led to the latest effort.
A number of city officials, religious figures and community activists held a news conference last week to condemn a set of ads paid for by the American Freedom Defense Initiative that expressed views widely seen as anti-Islamic.
The messages, containing phrases attributed to notorious figures such as Osama bin Laden, were the second set of Muni ads paid for by the organization.
