Albuquerque features well-timed billboard

FFRF and its Albuquerque chapter have put up a billboard with a well-timed message in New Mexico’s largest city.

A billboard has been installed at 152 Montano Road NW with a patriotic slogan superimposed on the image of a waving U.S. flag: “Keep Religion OUT of Government.” The display, paid for by FFRF, went up on Nov. 14 and will be there for a month.

“This is a timely reminder to our new government that our nation was founded on the uniquely American principle that religion should stay out of the public sphere,” says FFRF Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor. “The framers of our godless Constitution were wise to realize that wars, strife, terrorism and persecution go hand in hand when religion is allied with government. The incoming administration would do well to remember that.”
The activists with FFRF’s local chapter are thrilled to spread the word about the organization — especially at a time like this.

“As our country faces a challenging transition, we want to remind its citizens that it is imperative to honor the intentions of our Founders,” says Freedom From Religion-Albuquerque Vice President Kristen Gandy. “We also want to let secular individuals within our local area know that they are not alone in their values. Nontheists have a place in New Mexico to come to participate in activism, to let their godless voices be heard, and be supported in their constitutional rights with our local organization.”
