One week after being put up in Rancho Cucamonga, California, the Imagine No Religion billboard, shown to the left, by the Freedom From Religion Foundation has been taken down. It would be one thing if the company who owned the billboard had taken it down on their own.
However, it’s another thing when the company does so after city hall asks if there’s a way to get it removed.
A billboard with the message “Imagine No Religion” is no more.
Sign company General Outdoor removed the sign by the Freedom From Religion Foundation on Thursday after it received a request by the city to do so.
According to Redevelopment Director Linda Daniels, City Hall had received 90 calls of complaint since Wednesday.
“We contacted the sign company and asked if there was a way to get it removed,” Daniels said.
This is the first time the sign has been removed since the campaign started and I think it’s pretty obvious that the sign would still be up if the local government had not gotten involved.
If you’d like to send a complaint (a polite one, of course) you can send it from this page on Atheists United. The FFRF has issued a statement and has also put up the address of the billboard company if you’d like to send a complaint to them also.
