DC Metro Allows Pro-Abortion Ad, Denies Christmas Ads Celebrating Birth of Jesus

Rebel Staff

The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority is refusing to run ads celebrating Christmas and the birth of Jesus Christ. This is particularly disturbing given the fact that the metro system has no qualms about running pro-abortion ads.

Here's the ad that the metro system decided was too "offensive" for them to run:

 

Meanwhile, the metro system had no problem running this pro-abortion ad:

According to Life News, officials with the Archdiocese of Washington say that the metro's guidelines are “establish[ing] a regime that is hostile to religion" by not running the Christmas ad.

Judge Amy Berman Jackson, however, ruled that the city had the right to refuse to run the Christian ad:

“The regulation is reasonably aligned with WMATA’s duty to provide safe, reliable transportation, and it does not violate the First Amendment."

Church officials, however, aren't having any of it.

“The advertisement does not seek to address a general, otherwise permissible topic from a religious perspective," said a church spokesman.

"The sole purpose of directing the public to FindThePerfectGift.org is to promote religion [there]," he complained.

It says a lot about the state of American cities that a simple Christmas ad is deemed too "offensive" to run in public while an abortion ad is deemed appropriate.

Christians are told that they should remain quiet about their religious beliefs. Any reference to Christmas can be "triggering," as progressives believe Christians simply talking about Christianity or Christmastime, is akin to forcing their religion on others. 

Progressives want to force their views on issues like abortion on everyone, yet at the same time they want to silence alternative voices. 

Ah, the idiotic hypocrisy of the left!

The authoritarian leftist troll would rather bash Christianity than look at what true evil looks like….how predictable!

It would be them being between a rock and a hard place if Muslims put out an advertisement proclaiming theirs if the perfect religion and all else are false. Now, would the PC be for it or against it being put up,

Not so deep in our hearts, we know the answer.

Sickening!
Shameful and sickening…

I suppose I can’t be ‘triggered’ by the dismemberment of a live human fetus in the womb by an abortion ‘doctor’, and paid for by the taxpayer…because I’m a————(fill in appropriate lefty demonizing label), or, just not a lefty.

Of course, it’s Catholic Churches planned parenthood is targeting.
The big, bad, threat to the world – Catholicism.

Pro-abortionists are always lamenting that pro-life supporters are pushing their views and their religion on them.
As do atheists.

Ontario has now prohibited silent protesting closer than a block away from abortion clinics.

Another union environment pushing it’s weight!

No surprise here. The arrival of a King who calls people to repentance is better aborted as far as the left is concerned. Herod will not be dead while a lefty still breathes.
