And it seems that vandals are always on their trail, making minor alterations to their official signs.
In 2013, someone stuck the word “PRAY” to their post:
Last August, someone put stickers on the sign saying “God Loves”… (because I guess God loves damaging property):
And now, it’s happened again. Someone wrote “Pray For” on the sign with arrows pointing to the group’s name:
There’s not much you can do to prevent something like this, but I’m sure that CalTrans, which runs the Adopt-a-Highway program, will replace the sign as they have before.
The Butte County Coalition of Reason reiterated that they’re not going anywhere in response to the vandalism:
“We are more committed more than ever to being part of our community and letting all non-believers, free thinkers, agnostics and atheists know that we are here as their organization,” said George Gold, Coordinator of the Butte County Coalition of Reason.
