Anti-Religion Billboard Causes Flap in West Michigan [VIDEO]

WZZM

A billboard in Grand Rapids that reads, “You don’t need God – to hope, to care, to love, to live.” is causing a bit of a controversy in West Michigan. The billboard is paid for by CFI, the Center for Inquiry, a Michigan-based group composed of atheists, agnostics and skeptics who advocate a secular society. But the billboard is upsetting to some.

Why does this rub me the wrong way? It shouldn’t, but it does. If I see a billboard for a church or religious organization other than my own, or one that has views that differ from my own, I think nothing of it. Even though I know “Freedom of Religion” can mean “Freedom from Religion,” somehow I have a hard time with an organization that uses “Living Without Religion” as its slogan, and website address.

Grand Rapids’ WZZM-TV takes a closer look at the controversy surrounding the billboard.
