Colorado Pastor Prohibited From Using Name of Jesus in Bus Bench Advertisements

COLORADO SPRINGS, Co. — Officials in a Colorado city are reviewing the advertising policies of a local transit company after it prohibited an area pastor from using the name of Jesus in bus bench advertisements.

According to reports, Mountain Metro Transit told Lawson Perdue, pastor of Charis Christian Center in Colorado Springs that if the name of Jesus were allowed, the company would also have to accept ads considered hate speech.

Perdue had been advertising on local bus benches for the past three years, with messages such as “Celebrate Jesus” and “Experience Jesus.” He currently has the message “Jesus is Lord” on 20 benches throughout the Colorado Springs area.
