    Let what happen? The company decided they didn't want to rent their billboard for such a message. Its' their right.

    Athiests want to broadcast they can always buy their own billboard, and nobody could force them to take it down (provided it is equally unoffensive).

    PS, I don't think the billboard is inappropriate, but the person who decides what goes on there is the owner. No one else.

    So much for freedom of Religion.

    I guess you can be free to express your opinion if you're a Jew or a Christian, but not an Athiest.

    After seeing that, I'll never buy anything I see advertised on a CBS owned billboard.

    You're a fucking idiot, lwc. Do you ever read anything?

    They can buy their own billboard and nobody will prevent them from posting their sign on it. They can gather and have their non-services whenever they like.

    But "freedom of religion" and "freedom of speech" does not consist of forcing private parties to host your rubbish. That's not freedom, it's the opposite, oppression.

    I find it alarming and depressing that so many people confuse freedom with oppression. But you guys do it all the time.

    Listen to them whine. People are getting tire of you pushing your (no god theory) and they're gonna start pushing back, you wanted religion out of gov. we didn't like it but we live with it. Then you didn't want prayer in schools, you couldn't corrupt your kids with your no god law if they heard prayer in schools, but now your trying to take god out of america and america just ain't gonna stand for it. There gonna have to treat you like leprosy, cause that what your turning into a disease on mankind.

    Sad that freedom of speech only applies to christians now, America is lost because of this, not in spite of it.
