Kansas City Atheist Billboards Argue for ‘Godless Government Now!’

In anticipation of the upcoming Kansas City Regional Atheist Meeting, the Kansas City Atheist Coalition has put up two identical billboards in the city reading “Godless Government Now!”:

“Our convention is intended to unite people who are concerned that religious fundamentalism in government will seriously harm public education, science policy, women’s rights, gay rights and America’s standing in the world,” said Sarah Hargreaves, president of the Kansas City Atheist Coalition. “We believe that separation of church and state is fundamental, and we want to promote rational values in government and at home.”

To be clear, KCAC isn’t suggesting that we should have a government run by atheists, for atheists, and Christians-be-damned or anything like that. They’re advocating for a government that doesn’t promote one religion over another or religion over non-religion.

But I’m sure that won’t stop people from complaining…

The two billboards cost $5550 in total and will be up through the first week of October. Credit for the graphic design goes to KCAC board member Veronica Brown.
