STUTTGART(Evangelical Focus) — Christian organizations which buy advertising spots to post Bible verses in public spaces are coming under political scrutiny in Germany.
The parliamentary group of The Left/Pirates in the regional assembly of Stuttgart has asked for new advertising guidelines in the city trains (S-Bahn) to make sure no one is offended by the Bible verses.
For this leftist political faction, having Bible verses on advertising spots “in no way corresponds to the welcoming culture of the region.” According to local newspaper Stuttgarter Zeitung, they believe the “evangelical” and “partly aggressive missionary messages” make users of public transport feel uncomfortable. The public transport, they argue, should “not be a place of indoctrination.”
