Kevin Jakubowski contacted them on their Facebook page to confirm if they were responsible for the billboard’s removed and they said they were:
Kevin is polite in his dialogue with them, but there are still some questions:
- Does the church own this billboard space? If so, why was approval granted to put it up there in the first place?
- Do checks for the billboard get made out to the church? If they were paid in full (as was the case here), are they returning the money?
- Why was the church so offended by this billboard? If they dislike that it portrays atheism in a positive light, have they removed other billboards in the past?
I don’t think we’ve heard the last of this issue just yet.
***Update***: This looks to be the Google Maps image of the billboard and the church:
