Philly raises atheist billboard

Charlie Butts

An atheist organization has erected billboards along a major interstate highway in Philadelphia that say: "Don't believe in God? You are not alone."

It is a billboard campaign to recruit members for a humanist group, especially appealing to those who may be somewhat shaky in their beliefs. Diane Gramley, president of the American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), reacts to the billboards. "I'm astounded by this billboard in Philadelphia, but it pretty much follows along the course that Philadelphia is headed down," says the Christian activist. "I mean, when we see things happening in Philadelphia, from the Boy Scouts to [the city's] pro-homosexual leanings, I guess I'm not totally surprised." the rest/image
