Atheist Billboards Go Up in Chico, California

This is the design of the new billboards put up by the Butte County Coalition of Reason (in California):

There are twelve of these billboards all across the city of Chico, put up by the United Coalition of Reason at a cost of $3,780.

“We want to let the general public know that we belong to the larger community,” said George Gold, coordinator of the Butte County Coalition of Reason, today.

I love the background design on these billboards. And while the message has had some critics (Capitalizing God?! Joining a “club”?!), the bigger question now is how the community will respond to the signs: with respect or with vandalism.
