Atheist Group Plans Billboard Attack on Mormonism, Christianity at DNC

Billboards that attack Mormonism and Christianity will appear at the Democratic National Convention next month, the advocacy group American Atheists said on Monday.

The group said the billboards would appear near Charlotte, N.C. and would seek to “expose the foolishness of religion in the political landscape,” The Daily Caller reports.

Efforts to have similar billboards in Tampa, Fla., during the Republican National Convention this month failed, the group said, because companies there “refused to display the billboard focusing on Mormonism,” The Daily Caller reports.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who is expected to secure the GOP presidential nomination, is Mormon.

"The election of our leaders in the United States is one of the most important decisions that we as citizens make,” American Atheists President David Silverman said, The Daily Caller reports. “Allowing our judgment to be clouded by sheer silliness is unacceptable. We want to show the people of our country the foolishness of mixing religion with politics.”
