San Antonio Is Home to the Latest Atheist Billboard

The San Antonio Coalition of Reason in Texas has put up a digital billboard on I-10, near the Wonderland of the Americas Mall, through the Memorial Day weekend:

Reaching out to the like-minded isn’t the only goal of the coalition: “We hope folks will realize that we are a part of their community,” said Jim Parker, coordinator of the San Antonio Coalition of Reason. “Atheists and agnostics like us live all over Texas. We’re your coworkers, your neighbors, your friends and your relatives. One of us might even be sitting in the pew next to you at church.”

The United Coalition of Reason put up $5,000 to fund the ad. They add that this is the 31st state to feature an atheist ad campaign:

The states are Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin and West Virginia.

    Wonderful!   I’d like to see something similar up here in the Dallas suburbs.

    I probably won’t get to that side of town to see it, but I’m happy it’s there.

    Awesome! And because of this billboard not only did I find SACOR but I also found Patheos. Double awesome.

    Great!!! And also San Antonio is enjoying the Darwin’s Exhibit. We have come a “Long Way Baby”. I am very proud of my City.

    Read your KJV Bible and accept JESUS CHRIST as you savior then make a decision of what awsome really and truly is,till then don’t trip in the dark! 

    • krill.

      What makes your jesus christ the correct deity, how are you so sure? There are thousands of gods, and you choose him. How are you so sure you are not damned yourself? Is it because all the 2.1 billion cool kids are doing it? Lol, might as well be spinning the wheel of fortune. Enjoy wasting your only life. =]

    I wish I knew where the Missouri billboard(s) is/are. I see all too many Jesus, church, anti-abortion billboards but I haven’t seen any for atheists.
