The Freedom From Religion Foundation debuted a Solstice message this December as part of its 2018 Billboard campaign in suburban Atlanta.

Two digital billboards have gone up with secular holiday messages reading: 

“At the Season of the Winter Solstice MAY REASON PREVAIL.”

One digital billboard is located on Interstate 75 just south of Delk Road. The second is located on Spring Road, a half mile east of Atlanta Road.

FFRF points out that the real reason for the season is the Winter Solstice, taking place on Dec. 21 this year — the shortest, darkest day of the year. The Winter Solstice has been celebrated for millennia in the Northern Hemisphere because it signals the rebirth of the sun and the continuation of life.  In Georgia, these two billboards function as part of a year-long media campaign in the South’s most bustling metropolis underwritten by Georgia FFRF member Jack Egger. 

A third billboard featuring the message “Supernatural Belief — The Enemy of Humanity” went up along Peachtree Independent Boulevard just south of Peachtree Corners. 

The Freedom From Religion Foundation is a national nonprofit organization with more than 31,000 members and several chapters across the country, including over 500 members and a chapter in Georgia. FFRF’s purposes are to protect the constitutional principle of separation between church and state, and to educate the public on matters relating to nontheism.
