The Freedom From Religion Foundation just put up this billboard in Lubbock, Texas:
That billboard will be up for six months and the story behind why it’s up there is great:
The billboard reads: “I believe in an America where the separation of church and state is absolute — John F. Kennedy.” The billboard quotes JFK’s famous speech as a presidential candidate before the Greater Houston Ministerial Association on Sept. 12, 1960.“The deterioration of respect for this constitutional principle since that speech is breathtaking,” said Annie Laurie Gaylor, FFRF co-president.
The billboard was donated by FFRF member Michael Zargarov of Houston. Zargarov kindly gave FFRF the space after selling a pair of chairs from the movie, “The Ten Commandments.” The buyer just happened to own a local billboard company and offered Zargarov the space as payment for one of the chairs, valued at $10,000.
“It was very generous of Michael to think of FFRF when it came time to select a billboard design,” Gaylor added.
If anyone wants to offer me billboard space, I’d be happy to do your math homework for you.
