“Don't Believe In A God?” Billboards In 3 Southern States

PASCAGOULA, MS (AP) — Billboards reaching out to atheists, humanists, freethinkers and agnostics are up in Florida, Alabama and Mississippi.

         They bear one of two messages: "Good without a god? So are we!" and "Don't believe in a god? You're not alone!"

         Coordinators of the Gulf Coast Coalition of Reason Amanda Scott and Buz Ryland describe two goals: reaching out to like-minded people and letting others know that nontheistic folks are part of their communities.

         The Washington-based United Coalition of Reason is paying more than $11,000 to put the billboards up for four weeks in Mobile, AL, Pascagoula, MS and two sites in Pensacola, FL.

         It's part of a national campaign. Louisiana and Georgia are among 37 states where billboards went up earlier.
