I know here in Australia the remake of The Omen is going to be released on that date, as well as a few other horror, thriller films. Just using the hype of the date really.
The "God's Billboards" campaign was originated by an advertising firm called the Smith Agency in Florida.
According to The Christian Science Monitor, the ads were created by The Smith Agency in a advertising campaign funded by an anonymous person who wanted to "get people thinking about God." The "Messages from God" campaign was originally intended to be local and to last only a few months in 1999, but near its end, the Outdoor Advertising Association of America offered to launch it nationwide as a public service. The advertising space is now donated, either by the billboard owners or private individuals.
Anyway, assuming the sign you saw was one of the God's Billboards, and not a marketing campaign for "The Omen", then it typifies the primary reason I left Christianity--a lack of education and ability to adapt new knowledge. Considering that the "Number of the Beast" was actually proven a year or so ago to be 616, and not 666, it just goes to show that someone didn't bother doing their homework.
