I'm not shocked, but I am still pretty pissed off. The billboard was to feature local atheists where I live. It was going to be some sort of coming out and to aid in social acceptance. Some church folk complained and now they have to "relocate" to another billboard. I'm sure when it’s on a new billboard it will be removed too. It’s things like this that make me want to scream and tell people to eff off. I see their billboards and their religious propaganda every single day. It wasn't giving out info or trying to "recruit" anyone to being logical, intelligent people. It was simply a picture of a college student and it said "I can be good without god". Kind of like “hey I live in your community, I’m a hardworking college student, and I’m a good person …I just happen to be an atheist”. GRRRRR.

I know things like this happen too often, but It's the first time it has happened around me that I have been made aware of. Most of the time I can laugh stuff off, but this really makes me angry. This is BS. It's right up there with me having to vote in a church.
