Atheist Billboards to Go Up Around Valley

Good Without God: Atheist Billboards to Go Up Around SacramentoSACRAMENTO–

More than 55 billboards funded by the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) will pop up in Sacramento this month. The billboards will contain atheist messages from the local FFRF Sacramento Chapter.

“They are going up to let the fellow non-believers know they are not alone,” said FFRF Sacramento President Judy Saint of Roseville.

But, Bishop Jaime Soto with the Cathedral of a Blessed Sacrament refers to the billboards as propaganda.

“While I’m not happy about these billboards, I am certain people still, when they look deep down in their soul and in their heart, find a spark. They believe in a higher power,” Soto said.

Soto told FOX40 he does not think the billboards will have a large impact on the community.

Saint hopes he’s wrong, and wants others to know what it means to be an atheist.

“We are just like other people. We celebrate the holidays, but we don’t believe in god. You could call us free thinkers,” Saint said.

    Yay! I didn’t know there was such a large, active group in my area! I’m definitely going to check them out. I’m so glad to see there’s a group available to get involved without getting God.

    Thank you Mr. Soto for telling me what I really believe! Where would I be without you? Shall I return the favor? If you really look deep into your heart, you'll realize all gods are fake. Fun, isn't it telling others what they believe.
