Atheist Group’s Adopt a Highway Sign Vandalized in California

The Atheists United chapter in San Luis Obispo, California cleans up a section of Highway 101. Like other groups that “adopt a highway,” they have a sign on the road with their name on it.

Yesterday morning, however, this is what that sign looked like:

Yes, it’s relatively mild vandalism. Yes, the sign can be replaced. But it’s telling how the mere mention of the word “atheists” inspires this sort of act, even when the group is volunteering to clean up the highway.

AU SLO President Steven Arkowitz maintained that the group “stands for reason, compassion, and tolerance for all people. The highway sign is a symbol of the positive work we are dedicated to performing in our local community.”

And they’re not going to stop helping the community just because some idiot doesn’t want them there.

By the way, atheist Adopt a Highway signs have been vandalized (or at least tampered with) multiple times.
