Atheist Billboards Anger Las Vegas Christians

Ad Feedback

Christians living in Las Vegas, Nev. want several atheist billboards taken down before Christmas.

For example, some of the messages on the signs include "Heathen's Greetings" and "Reason's Greetings."

A third billboard that read, "Yes Virginia, there is no God," was taken down after numerous complaints.

The man who paid for the signs says they were meant to make people question and not to offend.

"There's an awful lot more signs that are religious intent than ours, and so to me, it's tit for tat," said Richard Hermsen.

But Christians are upset.

"If I'd had a ladder I would have climbed up there and pulled it down myself," said Las Vegas resident Brenda Kempf. "I'm a Christian. I believe in God, and I didn't like it. I just didn't appreciate it."

The Freedom from Religion Foundation created the billboards. They say it's just a coincidence that the signs were put up right before Christmas.
