RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (AP) - Complaints have led to the removal of an atheist group's "Imagine No Religion" billboard in Rancho Cucamonga, California.
The General Outdoor sign company took down the Freedom From
Religion Foundation billboard after the city said it received about 90 complaints and asked if there was a way to remove it.
The foundation's co-president, Annie Laurie Gaylor, says the city had no right "to interfere over religious controversy."
Rancho Cucamonga's redevelopment director, Linda Daniels, responded that the city did not demand General Outdoor take down
the sign, "but they respected the concerns of residents."
The Freedom From Religion Foundation has billboards in eight states that include such messages as "Reasons Greetings" and "Beware of Dogma."
