I thought this in the BBC's article on the bus was delightfully insightful, and perhaps even justifies the campaign in my view:
However the Methodist Church said it thanked Professor Dawkins for encouraging a "continued interest in God". Spirituality and discipleship officer Rev Jenny Ellis said: "This campaign will be a good thing if it gets people to engage with the deepest questions of life."

Heh, yes, nice example of law of unintended consequences. Truly, the Lord works in mysterious ways His wonders to perform.

I agree with our host that it does seem a lot of money for a gesture. Suggests to me not so much that there's an unsuspected huge groundswell of sympathy for Dawkinsism, but that the kind of people who do support it have lots of spare cash and are maybe lacking the inclination to spend it on anything more useful ;-)
