No evangelists

Like Ian Anderson, "I have no time for Rolling Stone" (first line of 'Mother England Reverie'), but my respect for the mass-market music magazine has been boosted slightly by their refusal to accept an advert for a new, youth-orientated edition of the bible:

"We are not in the business of publishing advertising for religious messages."
There's a time and place for religious recruitment (to any religion, this is not a specifically christian issue), but this isn't it.

[Update 26/01/05: Bugger. Rolling Stone caved in. The ad will run in February. Not that I was going to anyway, but I won't be buying the magazine.]
