Atheists’ billboard pulled from latest spot

(MCT) — An atheist organization’s billboard, recently moved because it was on church property, is on the move again.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation of Madison, Wis., said it was notified yesterday that the billboard company Clear Channel Outdoor removed the sign because of a complaint from an Ohio business. Dan Barker, co-president of the foundation, said he doesn’t know the identity of the business that complained or why the billboard company complied. As part of its “Out of the Closet” campaign, the foundation has placed seven billboards around Columbus that feature messages from local atheists.

Last month, Clear Channel had the board removed from another location after the Rev. Waymon Malone complained because the billboard was on church property.
