Atheist billboards... what do you think?

I live in the bible belt and I see TONS billboards relating to Christianity everywhere I go. I'm assuming religious billboards are everywhere all around the US. I, personally, could care less that they are there, they don't call for me, so whatever. I can't remember the exact story, or where I saw it from, but its been sorta recent.... but there was an Atheist billboard in some state that said something to the effect of "Atheist? your not alone!" and had a website on it... not bashing religion, not even a word about anyone else... Alot of Christians around that area were going as far as to send out death threats to the owner of the property to take it down. (I think it was private property)

WOW.... like I said, I see all kinds of religious billboards pertaining to all different aspects of different beliefs and I don't see anyone making a big deal out of it.... so, why an Atheist one?

So, would you be offended by an Atheist billboard while driving down the road if it was similar to the one I mentioned? Would you pitition to have it taken down (or death threats,lol? I hope not, lol)? I know, as an Atheist, I pay no mind to the religious billboards I see while driving down the road... they arn't calling to me and only to those who follow that religion... in other words, they are none of my buisness and they have every right to be up just as ours do.

We don't really have any billboards like that around here.  I honestly wouldn't give it two thoughts.

It wouldn't offend me at all because I was raised to accept people and not be judgemental, and a TRUE Christian wouldn't be acting that way and threating to kill people.

If religious organizations can put up billboards why not atheists? It's ridiculous that people would be offended.

 The reason for posting this is why is it such a big deal to some?

As long as it isn't a bash-fest billboard, I don't see why anyone would care!

 Nope! My Family (as in DH and Kids) are LDS, Mormon. We firmly believe everyone is entitled to their own beliefs. I would simply explaine to them that this is a different belief. Honestly, if a billboard strips away my childs Faith, I would have to seriously consider how firm that faith was, and where I failed in teaching them.
