I not sure they thought this idea through. Take one look at what radicals do when someone make fun of their religion. I am thinking they may have to be looking over their shoulder. And I am thinking more of the Islamic Radicals here. Just ask the Dutch cartoonist that drew an effige of their prophet.
To put those billboards in their community in their language is just asking to stir up trouble. Of course, they will probably be painted over the first night they are up.

No. Atheists just sat on their asses and let all this stuff happen.
And that's just it. No one should attempt to guide anyone's beliefs and just mind their own damn business. There is plenty of easily accessible material for people to find regarding religion and atheism therefore the individual should be left to look for answers on their own.

I have never seen one of these billboards. How many are there?

It is freedom of speech, who cares. No one makes a thread when a church puts up a billboard saying God exists.
Sorry, I can't help you with that. That is a question that only you can answer, since it is you whom believes in him/her/it.
I do want to ask though...WHO is MY God? When others speak of MY God I become irritated by the fact that he/she/it was never understood to be MY GOD.
I don't believe in categorization.
If one deems them self as an Atheist then when I say "atheist" I am referring to the person who considers them self to be an "atheist"
