Atheists say they get kudos for church billboard



Published: Tue, August 30, 2011 @ 2:09 p.m.

MANSFIELD, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio atheist group says it has been commended by some people for a billboard put up by a church’s pastor.

The road sign in Mansfield features the statement “There is no God” in capital letters. Below that, it says, “Don’t believe everything you hear.”

Pastor Frank Moore of McElroy Road Church of Christ tells the Mansfield News Journal he wanted to honor God with an ad that would get people thinking. He says he remembered how his parents always advised him not to believe everything people told him.

The Mansfield-based Mid Ohio Atheists says it has been contacted and congratulated by people incorrectly thinking it put up the billboard. The group says it wants to thank the church for, as the atheists say, “advertising our thoughts.”

Does this mean that the billboard will now have to be removed for 'offending' Christians?
