The burning billboard


Grand Junction in western Colorado has long had a problem separating state from Christian church. County commissioners keep trying to pray before public meetings, and public officials approve of nativity displays on public property. Now, a Wisconsin-based organization, the Freedom from Religion Foundation, is striking back with an in-your-face message for drivers. The Associated Press says the foundation has paid for billboards that urge residents — in giant type — to “Praise Darwin. Evolve beyond belief.”
