FFRF places billboards in rural Nashville citing ‘good news … there is no God or Hell’

There is no Hell 1

The Freedom From Religion Foundation has placed provocative messages on two billboards outside Dickson, Tenn., thanks to local member Frank Stiver. Dickson is a town of about 15,000 40 miles west of Nashville.

One billboard says, “The Good News is . . . THERE IS NO GOD” and the other says, “The Good News is . . . THERE IS NO HELL.” The slogans were suggested by Stiver, an octogenarian who generously paid to post them on behalf of FFRF. Both billboards are 8 feet by 25 feet and are found on Interstate 40. One board is a mile east of Highway 48 and the other a mile west of Highway 48 near Exit 163.

“The Freedom From Religion Foundation believes these billboards proclaim truly good news,” says FFRF Co-President Dan Barker, an author and evangelical minister turned atheist. “The concept of a place where individuals are tortured eternally for being the ‘wrong’ religion is reprehensible. Humans should not be enslaved to the concept of a vengeful deity.”

FFRF is grateful to Stiver for helping it spread “the good news.”

The Freedom From Religion Foundation, a national state/church watchdog, has more than 35,000 nonreligious members and several chapters around the country, including hundreds of members and a chapter in Tennessee.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation, based in Madison, Wis., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit educational charity, is the nation's largest association of freethinkers (atheists, agnostics), and has been working since 1978 to keep religion and government separate.

FFRF is a non-profit, educational organization. All dues and donations are deductible for income-tax purposes.
