Group posts 'Godless billboards'

CINCINNATI (AP) - A group says what it calls "Godless billboards" in Ohio's biggest cities are aimed at raising awareness about people who don't believe in God.

The Washington, D.C.-based United Coalition of Reason has put up large billboards in Cincinnati, Columbus and the Cleveland area with the message: "Don't believe in God? You are not alone."

There's also the Web address for the group's local chapter in each community.

In a statement, the group says millions of humanists, atheists and agnostics live in the U.S. and the signs seek to reach out to them.

Coalition national director Fred Edwords says the group's previous billboard campaigns have drawn generally positive responses and only minor criticism. The billboards will stay up for 30 days.
