Atheism Billboard in Fresno Vandalized
by Dennis Hart
Just a few days after it was put up, someone has defaced a controversial billboard in Fresno, the one that promotes atheism.
The billboard is on Blackstone Avenue near Saginaw.
Someone used white paint to cover the word “Don’t” in the headline — and painted the letters “MADC” on the billboard.
David Costa of the Central Valley Coalition of Reason — which paid more than $5,000 to have the billboard up during the month of May — said he has learned that MADC is a Valley tagging group.
“I can’t say I’m completely surprised, but I am highly disappointed,” Costa told KMJ News.
He said his group will pay to have the billboard fixed, adding that he is more committed than ever to making his group’s presence known.
