A new billboard on I-25 has Colorado Springs talking. It reads, "God is an imaginary friend. Choose reality, it'll be better for all of us."
The Boulder Atheist Group spent $1,200 on three of these billboards around Colorado. They say, the message isn't anti-religion, its pro-thinking. They also hope the billboard advocates a stronger separation of church and state.
"The goal of COCORE is to encourage communication, to encourage people to talk about these ideas, because often it can be difficult to even begin a conversation about such things," Schroeder said
A local paster says he understands that billboards are an expression of the freedom of speech, but he just doesn't agree with the message. He also doesn't think it'll have much of an impact on believers.
The billboard will stay up for 3 more weeks.
