Controversial Billboard References God

Excerpt:

A new controversial billboard referencing God has been put up along I-540 in Springdale.

The billboard says, "Are you good without God? Millions are." It's located on I-540 North just before the Wagon Wheel exit. It's an advertisement directing readers to a web site for the Northwest Arkansas Coalition of Reason. It's an atheist organization that reaches out to individuals who may feel ostracized by the surrounding religious community.

"We want people to know in our community that may be religious skeptics that they are not alone and there are thousands of people in Northwest Arkansas that may want to find out about our groups and go to our meetings and our lectures and associate with people with a like mind," said Darrel Henschell, of NWA Coalition of Reason.
