LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Freedom From Religion Foundation is suing
Rancho Cucamonga, California, for the city's alleged role in
removing the atheist group's "Imagine No Religion" billboard.
The billboard company took the sign down after the city asked if
there was a way to get it removed. Rancho Cucamonga's redevelopment director says the city had received 90 complaints about the billboard.
The lawsuit says removal of the billboard message unconstitutionally "conveyed a message that religion is favored, preferred and promoted by the city."
