It is an amazing time to be part of the secular movement. Look at what’s happened in 2012 alone. We held the Reason Rally, the largest event our community has ever had, which brought over 20,000 atheists, humanists, and other secular people together on the National Mall. We are growing, attracting new people, and drawing more attention than ever before.
(Roanoke, Virginia, December 28, 2012.) A second of the four Blue Ridge Coalition of Reason billboards in the Roanoke area was found vandalized today. The billboard at 32 Boulevard Street near the underpass and just north of Patterson, in Roanoke, facing south, originally read: "Don't believe in God? Join the club." But the "n't" was blocked out with wrapping paper and duct tape, leaving the text to read "Do." Last week the billboard at Virginia Route 419 at 1420 Lynchburg Turnpike, in Salem, facing east, had had the entire word “Don't" blacked out with paint. That billboard has been replaced.
