A billboard in Albuquerque is turning heads this Christmas season.
Atheists.org, the website for American Atheists, has purchased billboard space touting “Just skip church it’s all fake news!”
The sign is meant, according to Fish, to not only get people to think critically about the message conveyed by religion, but also to remind people. “Christianity or any other religion doesn’t have a monopoly on December. So, our message here is, however you want to celebrate it, go ahead and do that,” Fish said.
