Kate Shellnutt, who writes the blog The Little Things for our pals at Windy Citizen, spoke to a CCoR coordinator about the billboard.
Hemant Mehta, the coordinator of Chicago Coalition of Reason, the group that sponsored the billboard, thinks no reaction might be a good reaction.
“If Christians (or whomever) don't react, that means atheism is becoming more acceptable in society. Which is great. If they do react, then what exactly are they opposed to?” said Mehta, also known as the “Friendly Atheist, in an email.
This isn't just a local campaign either; a similar campaign in New York's subway system has also garnered some attention recently.
